Another week, another new Gundam 00 commercial. I can’t say I’m surprised at how many commercials there have been since there were a ton of Geass R2 ones back in the spring as well, and they probably want to get as many Geass fans as possible to watch the next show in the Sunday timeslot. As for this commercial, it brings back the UVERworld song (Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi) and the rapidly-flashing-by of images. It’s a little more mecha oriented than the previous ones due to all the new Gundams plus the Ahead and the GN-XIII types being shown, but there are some character shots in there too, including Soma, Kathy, and more Saji. Heck, I almost didn’t recognize Kathy because her uniform, short hair, and face made her look like a man.
This commercial also prompted me to visit the official site again, and I noticed that they’ve updated with a lot of characters since I last checked (don’t click the link if you don’t want to be spoiled). The masked character in particular is kind of amusing because it’s pretty obvious who that is, yet the official site makes it seem like a mystery. I’m curious to see how they develop him into a villain (assuming they do so) and if he’ll be a bigger threat than Ribbons.
