Gundam 00 – A wakening of the Trailblazer

「A wakening of the Trailblazer」

Back in May when I posted about a couple of the trailers for the theatrical conclusion to the Gundam 00 story, there wasn’t a whole lot revealed about what Celestial Being would be getting into in this final installment. The official site only makes brief mention that it takes two years later in A.D. 2314, when a 130-year-old scrapped research vessel in Jupiter’s orbit makes its way towards Earth with a new crisis, so I really wasn’t too sure what to expect.

Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer – Movie Trailers

I haven’t been keeping close tabs on the Gundam 00 follow-up movie that’s slated to premiere in theaters this September, but a new trailer for it was released earlier this week. For those wondering, the story takes place two years after the events of the second season (2314 A.D.) and appears to focus on a new pure Innovator named Descartes Shaman (Katsuji Ryou), who pulls Celestial Being back into action again. While continuing to showcase some of the new Gundams and how Setsuna’s new 00 seems to be equipped with Fangs, this latest trailer also features UVERworld’s theme song, “CHANGE”. There are some bigger questions raised by an earlier trailer though (see below), which shows Tieria back in bodily form and Nena Trinity (or at least Kugimiya Rie) back in some capacity as well. Also, yes, it looks like Feldt cut her hair. Nooo~!

… See the other trailer after the jump.

The Daily Dose

  • According to Gigazine’s website the “renewed” airing of The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suuzumiya anime series is 28 episodes long. Gigazine said that they had contacted the Teletama broadcasting station and a representative had reportedly told them that “we hear from the client that it is 28 episodes long.” J-Cast had also contacted Teletama upon hearing the news and they were told that the “renewed” airing will also include new material due to the planned 28 episode allotment. Interesting…
  • The official website for the anime adaptation of Guin Saga is streaming an English dubbed trailer. I can’t say much for the dubbing, but this series looks like its going to be great.
  • FUNimation is offering the new Fullmetal Alchemist anime on their website for streaming on April 9th at 12pm; four days after the Japanese airing.
  • With it becoming increasingly popular these days for companies to distribute anime on the web, Bandai Namco plans to join all the others by offering its Gundam franchise in ten different languages on the internet sometime this year.
  • FUNimation also announced that it has signed a partnership with Toei to release – Air Master, Captain Harlock, Digimon Adventure 02, Fist Of The North Star, Galaxy Express, Pretty Cure, and Slam Dunk on its website. I believe I already know what two series I plan to check out.
  • It was announced that a manga spinoff of the popular Capcom video game Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney) will be on the prosecution’s side and it is entitled Gyakuten Kenji. The manga will premiere in Kodansha‘s Weekly Young Magazine on April 13th.
  • A new manga adaptation of Tales Of The Abyss entitled Tales of the Abyss -Tsuioku no Jade- is scheduled to start April 24th in Kadokawa Shoten‘s Asuka magazine.
  • A second promotional video is being streamed for Shangri-La on its official website.

    The Daily Dose

  • It was announced at the end of the 25th episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season that a film was in the works and will open in Japanese theaters in 2010. So that should be plenty of time for me to catch up with both seasons.
  • The second promotional video for Sengoku Basara, a video game adaptation for the Playstation 2, is up for streaming at the official website. It premieres April 1st.
  • It was announced by GDH that the company will sell off its game development subsidiary Gonzo Rosso. The company plans to refocus itself on its animation business with Gonzo. I’ve never played any of their games, but I’m sure this is sad news indeed for somebody.
  • Yoko Kamio‘s Matsuri Special SP manga spinoff will be in the July issue of Shueisha‘s Deluxe Margaret magazine. In the same issue will be Kazune Kawahara‘s Enkoi Debut which is the follow up to High School Debut.
  • The artist behind the manga versions of Blood+ and Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is starting two new mangas in April and May in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine.
  • The manga series Twin Spica is getting a live-action TV drama on June 11th. The series will be broadcast on the NHK and actress Nanami Sakuraba is set to play the lead.
  • The next manga for Hellsing creator Kouta Hirano will be featured in the Shonengahosha‘s Young King Ours magazine and its title is Drifters. I’m curious if this will include Hirano’s trademark craziness or not.
