That Wing Fenice is looking superb. Really great load out. if only Heero had that equipment in original Wing series maybe the poor Gundam wouldn't have ended up being the most abused title Gundam ever.

I...kinda doubt that. Poor Wing Gundam's problem isn't so much its own loadout in the series (Well, other than the three-shot limit to the Buster Rifle), it's the pilot.
But yes, Wing Fenice is looking VEERY sharp.
And Beargguy III looks silly to me. Though, take off that big huge ribbon on its back, and it looks like it could be lying around on a couch, swearing like a drunken sailor and chugging beer with Mark Wahlberg.

No one's talking about the possible participant called SENGOKU ASTRAY :D
This is why I love Astray Gundams: they can be molded from normal to crazy and still looks cool :D

If by being both crazy and awesome at the same time, then I do agree with you. Because an armed unicycle for a mobile suit is pretty crazyawesome.

I believe the people behind this worked on 00 didn't they? If so that could explain that

OR alternatively... 25 episode seasons worked for 00, while AGE stuck to (almost) 50 and failed, going back to what works?

Either way IF that's true, it's not so bad, if it sucks, it ends our pain sooner. If it's good we can appreciate what we got.

AGE's failures have nothing to do with how long it ran. The writing would've been just as lacking if it had been split into two seasons like 00.

ZOINKS, I suddenly have a déjà-vu.

So by the end of BF 25th episode, we will crown it as the greatest Gundam series and praise it as being almost perfect piece of art.

Since it's well-recieved, Sunrise will launch Season 2 late of the next year. And then, half of us think the S2 ruin everything, even being worse than AGE - while the other half think that it's still a solid title despite being a different kind of work.

Well, it could mean superior animation and such if there are only 25 episodes. Might be worth less content. You know, quality over quantity. A good short Gundam series might be in order after such a long time of only full length entries.

Or probably Sunrise simply doesn't have enough reasons to go more than 25 episodes on this premise. AGE could go on to 50 (from the planned 78 :O ?) because it has three generations of pilots to be told.

Also hopefully they need to conserve strengths and gauge whether the premise is supported by fan base or not. If yes, it could lead to be the Gundam series that goes on forever, 25 episodes aired each season, showing endless possibility of Mobile Suit model hacks and customizations :D

Oh believe me I know, it was just a jab at the history of them sticking with what works (or rather..sells) and almost ignoring what fails.

Then again, that's a very logical business practice, haha.

But yeah I'd prefer a 25 Ep season just because it keeps the quality up an we don't get a case of mid-season burn out like oh so many animes of the past.

I haven't seen this "mid-season burn out" that so many people have been talking about ever since 00 got split up like it's some assumed or known thing. Just because a show runs 50 episode doesn't mean it's going to lose steam in the middle. There are plenty of 26 and 13 episode shows that go bad before they finish.

One does have to wonder if it could be a half year run to give a break before starting The Origin the following autumn.

But yeah, I'd like to see a source before taking this as fact.

That's assuming Origin is a TV series, which Sunrise hasn't announced yet.

Wasn't 00 only split because another popular show had already reserved the timeslot that the second half of 00 would've used?

Anyway, assuming it's true, if this is not a hint toward Build Fighters being a multi-season show, then maybe the story they're planning simply doesn't take 50 episodes to tell. That's a perfectly fine reason.
