      the pic of nunally is so kawaii!! and welcome back sixthdawn.i really enjoyed your daily doses before and sorely missed them when they were discontinued.

      Gundam Surprise? What the hell? Haven’t we had enough Gundam franchise for the past year? Is Sunrise still that desperately in need of money?

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:23 amKaioshin Sama

      Yeah, shame on Sunrise for daring to mark the franchise’s 30th anniversary exactly like they did the 20th anniversary with the Big Bang Project (Turn A Gundam, G-Saviour and many short films) back in 1999!

      Seriously, though, I expected a celebration and can’t wait to find out what the project is.

      @mit
      Omni used to do the Daily Doses before, I’ll be helping him continue them from now on.

      @anon & olivia
      Its not really confirmed whether the surprise is a new series. The 20th anniversary was a Gundam movie called G-Savior (as Kaioshin stated), so we’re probably looking at either an OVA or another movie, but we’ll see ;).

      lol yay for more Tsubasa xD

      and I saw that pic on DA yesterday~~

      As long as the celebratory project takes us back to the UC and features Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, I’ll be happy. Though to be honest, I’d be happy with a movie adaptation of Beltochika’s Children (want to see an animated Hi-Nu) or a movie adaptation of Hathaway’s Flash.

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:33 amNazarielle

      That picture of Nunnally is just way too cute :3

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:39 amJason Isenberg

      Yeah definitely was eying the RE Movie there. I can’t wait for this baby to come out, it looks amazing! Leon coming back and Clair? Epic win.

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:45 amlucky_huh?

      about the surprice gundam project hopefully is not a continuation in “any” form of the idiotic seed destiny i am ok i guess,but it will be cool to see the original like tomino wanted it, with more sayla action this time please, sence she got shafted in the sequels becase of her V,A moreover just with tomino as director i will be happy >:D.

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:46 amKaitune

      I wonder what the surprise Gundam thing would be…

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:05 amSilent Minstrel

      Bungaku Shojo manga!!! YEAH!!

      Am I the only one that read the light novel here?

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:08 amChicle

      every type of gundam suddenly meet after falling through a vortex in the space-time continuum, and hilarity ensues

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:24 amblahblih

      I appreciate what you’re doing here but I think if you write a little longer description or your own ideas for each announcement it makes them much more enjoyable to read. Right now it is as if I’m reading summery of news paper headlines. It’s just that, you know, it’s boring!

      Good luck :)

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:27 amKaioshin Sama

      @Lucky_huh? You do know that Sayla’s VA has been dead for like 5 years now right?

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:28 amsaikeraku

      Can’t wait to see what the ‘surprise’ is for Gundam.

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:30 amAnonymous

      Whatever happened to the Gundam SEED movie that was supposed to be a sequel to Destiny?

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:39 amGocrazy

      and I was hoping for a Code Geass surprise. lol

      Gundam surprise project? =O

    • October 27, 2008 at 2:24 amGundam maniac

      GUNDAM SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • October 27, 2008 at 2:49 amwhatever

      wow, cant wait for resident evil

    • October 27, 2008 at 3:20 amKaioshin Sama

      Pretty much everybody I’ve seen expects it to be an adaptation of Gundam Unicorn.

    • October 27, 2008 at 3:51 amDarknessheal

      Thanks for the update much appreciated =)

    • October 27, 2008 at 4:14 amSean

      Can anyone elaborate on what ISekai no Seikishi Monogatari is…?

    • October 27, 2008 at 4:26 amexia

      i bet the gundam surpise is the ova MS IGLOO 2. i seen the first igloo series (6 episodes) and i liked the fact that it was UC ERA, and portrayed the side of ZEON, AND it was fairly realistic. MORE IGLOO PLZ!! maybe a gundam will actually show up in igloo2

    • October 27, 2008 at 4:54 amFat Cat Lim

      @Jason Isenberg: Don’t get your hopes up. I watched the movie at TGS 2008 and both me and my colleague thought it was rather mediocre. I’ve seen better animation and acting in *gasp* Spirits Within.

    • October 27, 2008 at 6:12 amRie-chan

      Weee Tsubasa OVA!
      And er.. Gundam Surprise… >__> I hope i will be surprise

    • October 27, 2008 at 7:45 amamalek

      OMG!! I’d never expected a new Pani Poni Dash! episode, but I’m freaking eager for it!!

      I’M GETTING READY TO LOL

    • October 27, 2008 at 8:28 amWargummi

      And here i was hoping there was a Code geass movie or third season coming in The Daily Dose. Well I know the chances for third season or a movie is less than 10% likely so whatever still I like to have my hopes up.

    • October 27, 2008 at 10:12 amShadow Blood Moon

      awesome a new Tenchi Muyo series XD

      cant wait for more info XD or trailer total now XD >_< !!!!

    • October 27, 2008 at 12:42 pmDookster

      I have a gut feeling that the Gundam SEED movie IS the Sunrise 30th project. Even though it was previously announced, everyone thinks it’s never coming out after the co-writer came down with a case of the cancer, so unveiling the SEED movie at this point would indeed be a surprise. Also, considering how incredible SEED and Destiny’s TV ratings were, it’d be a big deal.

    • October 27, 2008 at 1:37 pmUnknownVoice

      @Dookster
      Considering how crappy the CE stuff is, i doubt Sunrise will risk loosing that much of fans.

      My bet is on new UC project or some sort of multi-verse-special :3

    • October 27, 2008 at 6:39 pmMidnightTide

      A nice CG surprise would be someone telling us if Lulu is really dead!!!

    • October 27, 2008 at 7:36 pmsilverwolf1492

      HBD Nunnally!

      i hope the gundam surprise is either, Gundam Unicorn, a new AU Gundam story, a new Gundam UC altogether with Amuro and Char again. Also i hope that they make that Gundam SEED movie that they have been talking about for over a year now. I wanna see Kira and Athrun again or even better a Gundam 00 Movie but we will just have to wait and see
