On a thread related note, Tekketsu means "Iron Blood". That got me thinking, perhaps we could see a Gundam series in a Game of Thrones setting.

Yeah most people have been saying it's fake it's why I took it down when I posted it.

Shoulders look kind of off, and such, but I do kinda like the design and it matches up for the most part so who knows. I think there's a good change it may be legit. Especially since it does look like potato taken in a hurry quality like most leak pics do.

Is anyone at least a little bit curious as to why they chose the word "Tekketsu", a word which translates to either "Iron Blood" or "Blood and Iron", as a subtitle for the new Gundam series?

Zeon's RedComet
July 5, 2015, 4:58 AM
A little not really curious enough to make blind guesses though since all we have is a silhouette though there are more details on it the farther along the countdown goes it seems.

As for Iron and Blood, the only connentation I know it from is the fact that its a phrase most commonly referenced when referring to a speech by Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. So take that as you will.

Exia
July 5, 2015, 5:10 AM
I know it depends on how the kanji is but Tekketsu can also mean gouging (as in something out) or exposure. So it may be a gundam show that gouges and exposes corruption.

I'm thinking it's a branch of a military who were setup to expose the corruption of whatever government is the major problem. Hopefully it'll be a soldier fully prepared to pilot the suit and not some teenage brat who falls into it.

If it can't have a solid waist, it can't have a model kit that can stand up without breaking in half. So yeah, I'm sure that's gonna be armored up for when we see it in action.

Not big on that face, but I love that v-fin.

As somebody who really liked the Titus design, a big ol' burly main Gundam like this is pretty neat. Also makes me think about the Big O since that's another big Sunrise bot. This makes me wonder what direction the show will go in.

Zaku
July 13, 2015, 4:34 PM
if the wiast is four big pistons i can like it. id perfer the ab section to be armored but if there are four pistons and wires and stuff i would be fine with it. just two would be stupid.

I like how the Gundam uses a big ol' polearm.

I find it interesting how massive it looked early, but now it looks very skeletal. I don't mind this look either, though. The legs make me think of Turn A's. However, I still have my doubts about this thing in plastic form since the waist we saw is the one we're actually getting.

That grunt looks neat.


I didn't expect Mari Okada to be the writer, but I'm confident she could write a good Gundam show.

From the information that I have read so far, it was somehow mentioned that as the story progresses, the Gundam will be patched up maybe from defeated mobile suits. From what I have seen from the short trailer so far is that it's giving an After War-like setting.

Zaku
July 15, 2015, 1:35 AM
really sad to see the gundam isnt anywhere near as tastefully bulky but not to bulky as it looked in the shaded pic we saw. this is a huge blow to my liking this thing. the face still looks awesome and i love the exposed mechanical bits. not to crazy about the ab section being so exposed the forearms look a bit to long and its to skinny if the proportions were way different i would have watched it just for the mechanical designs. and the characters in the anime look like generic anime characters. i guess unicorn was the last "for you older fans" gundam we will get. not a fan of that grunt suit either. the gundam franchise is really getting run into the ground. they just seem to see the name gundam as a guarantee people will at least anticipate it. and watch it.

it does have a skeletal feel to it. id really like to see it bulk up. i want to like this thing. i see potential in the design to be cool and practical. as far as the series goes i dont have much to form an opinion on but so far it looks like every other anime ever.

Meh. Feeling kind of disappointed in this one. I think Zaku hit on a lot of good points. Cool face in that close-up but the v-fin in perspective like that just looks way too huge and funky for me. I liked the concept of the bull horn-ish look but in seeing it there I'm not feeling it. And the waist was my biggest gripe with it from the get go. They're gonna need to use some solid joints and stiff pistons to get good support and decent articulation out of that design. I want to like that suit and am hoping the speculation about it "evolving" in the series is true. I'm just glad this one isn't as completely ridiculous as most of the reconguista suits

Zeta
July 15, 2015, 2:38 AM
So I found a little bit of information regarding the plot (courtesy of ANN):


The show is set 300 years after a great conflict between Earth and Mars known as the "Calamity War." A woman named Cordelia sets out on a journey to Earth to speak for the independence of the Martian city of Chryse, which is under the control of the Earth government. Escorting her is the private security company CGS, which protagonists Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka are members of. When a group named Gjallarhorn attacks CGS and Cordelia, Orga sees this as a chance to rebel against CGS and launch a coup. Mikazuki and Orga are thrust into a new conflict. To fend off Gjallarhorn, Mikazuki rides an old mobile suit from the Calamity War, powered by a nuclear reactor, the Gundam Barbatos.

Actually sounds kind of interesting. To me, plot takes precedence over mecha design. That being said, the mecha designs do like pretty damn cool.

Plot seems reminicent of Aldnoah Zero, just in the After War X kind of setting. Could be very good with that director (big plus for Ano Hana, big minus for Mai Hime though), and the Barbatos looks pretty cool all round, though the thin waist and lower legs need a bit more bulk to them.

I doubt I'll drop it, the only Gundam show I dropped in recent memory, or ever was Try, and that was more just because I had other things going on than dropping it intentionally. That and I honestly had no investment in the final fight so, skipping it and waiting for the surprisingly fun finale worked out for me.

I'm just going to do what I did with Greco go in with no expectations, and hopefully have fun. Only thing that has me excited is the tri pod tank things and the post apoc vibes really.

Funny enough, I looked at the team of mechanical designers for this series, and quite a few of them did mechanical work for Gundam 00.

However, it seems that the uploader used footage we've already seen from the previews with the original audio being replaced by the openings vocals. We still have no idea what the opening is going to look like, nor a full understanding of the plot and direction of the series (we have a synopsis sure, but there could more that we're not seeing). I'm still keeping an open mind. Really the design of the Gundam Barbatos has grown on me and I actually like it. Still, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but just remember "you can't judge a book by its cover alone."

"This isn't Gundam" should have been thrown out the window as an attitude as soon as we knew that AUs were here to stay.

Or, hell, I'd have thought it'd go away after Build Fighters.

At this point, Gundam is whatever Banrise wants it to be, even if I have my own ideas on what the "heart" of Gundam and what makes it appeal to me as a franchise.

Well Age and G-Reco sucked by most people's accounts, AWoT wasn't exactly great (probably the weakest Gundam movie ever apart from G-Saviour), and Try was decent at best/terrible at worst, so if GBF is the only good thing to come out of 6 years of trying to break the mold, then its time for Bandai to go back to the basics and make something great again. I am tired of rewatching all the old Gundam series, I want something great to come along, something to make me wait eagerly week after week for more, unlike all the latest Gundam series which at best just helped to fill 20 some minutes of my free time a week.

Everything about G-Tekketsu from its overly angst-y and "hardcore" title name to its terrible mecha designs, to its probably even terrible character designs, to this terrible Opening song, it all just screams "this show is going to suck big time" to me.

I am by no means telling people not to watch it, nor trying to boycott it. If you guys want to give it a try, then by all means do so, its your time. I am just putting out my two cents about this series, which is what these forums are about right?

Exactly how I feel about this series. It seems Bandai is just taking some random mecha show script and idea they had lying around, slapped in a crappy looking Gundam, and said "look, new "Gundam" series for you guys, now buy lots and lots of Gunpla kits."

Then again, Bandai got to make that money.

I'm not saying don't share your opinions hell its what I'm doing as well, and my opinion is, go ahead and have your own, as I've said before, but I think the it isn't gundam thing isnt a good arguement /point especially since theresmplent of pre 00(IMO 00 S1 started the mold breaking even if it had some wingf qualities) broke the molds in other ways. Look at G for instance.

But to each their own as you said it doesnt seem to be to your liking and that fine, Im 210% cool with that my comment on the its not gundam thin was more directed at the fanbase as a whole it just seems silly in my opinion was in now way meant to be an attack on your opinions.

This is kinda how I operate.

Mainly because when it comes down to it, its a brand name at this point t, meant to move shows granted there are typical tropes (some of which from into even this follows) but yeah there's plenty within gundam I like, and plenty I hate. I digress that's just my annoying opinions of the night.

G Gundam just complicates my argument, because it is good, but it would of been good regardless if the mecha in the series were Gundams or not. That is solid story telling and artwork by the team behind it. That being said, it is a case of "the exception that proves the rule" rather than a true argument against my line.

I think I'm in the 1% who's on the side of the show.

The problem with the Gundam franchise is that the fans has made something of a checklist on what consists of a Gundam show.

It may look something like this:

>Has a rehashed RX-78 design as a lead mobile suit
>must have a masked antagonist that must emulate Char's characteristics
>must follow the UC Gundam's plot/ story line / story narration
>must have angsty teenagers as main characters

True, the current experimentations of Sunrise with the franchise (AGE, GBF/T, G-Reco), may have been a hit-and-miss, and heck they already done it in the past with Turn A Gundam, but for me, I appreciate how they want to try new ideas to incorporate to what could be an almost stagnant franchise that's just endless rehashes of old ones.

On another note, after seeing that Gundam Frame, I think that the Barbatos and the Kimaris has that same frame.

I said it earlier. I'm giving it 6 episodes. If they can't grab me in 6 then it's not worth watching weekly.

There are some suits I like the looks of, can't remember the names, but some of them look like crap. Hate the gundam's name, but as far as the gundam itself. Dunno. I like that it's main weapon is a giant f***in' mace. That factors in. I guess at the end of it all, I like the overall design. Some things I could live without, but some of it I like.

It looks a lot better than G-Reco IMO, at least this one has me wanting to watch the first episode as soon as I can. I don't think I felt that way about Reco, just was more "ehh it's there might as well watch it" feeling.

Some info from the manual for the Barbatos apparently, also spoilers. Mainly just covering my ass on that spoilers bit, always get like one person screaming spoilers.

-overall height:18.0m, dry weight:28.5t

-Gundam Barbatos: About 300 years ago, the Calamity War drove by humanity itself caused the civilization decline. Barbatos is an ancient MS produced in that era. Even with that era's technology mounting 2 Ahab Reactors and making them operate in parallel high output was extremely difficult, so 72 machines using a Gundam Frame fuselage were rolled out. All of those 72 machines have an individual name registered to them, Barbatos' Gundam prefix is a rare name for a MS to bear. The burden on the pilot is high due to the high output and high maneuverability, however it's mitigated by the implementation of Inertial Control due to the use of Ahab Particles generated from the reactor when a phase transition occurs inside its vacuum device. The cockpit structure is positioned in front of the reactor to take advantage of this. Among the same frame machines, Barbatos has been adjusted for an emphasis on versatility, it has the potential to adapt to every circumstance by performing exchanges of all sorts of equipment.

-Mikazuki Augus: boarded the Barbatos when Gjallarhorn attacked the CGS HQ facility then became its pilot. He has received the Alaya-Vijnana(storehouse consciousness concept from Buddhism) System surgical treatment 3 times and still returned alive. This system grants excellent spatial awareness and since ancient MS require rapport from an Organic Device Sytem, compatibility with Barbatos is very good. Inspired by Gjallarhorn attack, he participates with the mobilized children including Orga Itsuka in starting up Tekkadan. He has never been to

-Mace: Physical destruction weapon made from a high hardness rare alloy used in MS frames. As MS use Nano Laminated Armor for protection, such striking weapons are considered to be effective. Its pointed end has an spear-like stick out injection mechanism.

-Long Sword: Sword used by MS training at Teiwaz's HQ ''Jupiter'' factory. It shows its superiority during localized attacks because it's easy to handle due to its lightweight.

-Gauntlet: already equipped when Barbatos was discovered on Mars. Thought to be an original Barbatos exchangeable armament, not sure.

-1st Form: from the Calamity War around 300 years ago. Discovered in Mars' desert by Malva Arkay(CGS president). Since its Ahab Reactors were still in operational state it was used as the CGS HQ facility's power source until Mikazuki boarded it.

-4th Form: Based on ancient materials from the time of the Calamity War that had been recorded on Teiwaz's database, Barbatos' original shape reproduced by ''Jupiter'' technicians. Machine's weight balance stabilized because of additional armaments. Reactor output was improved too.

So the kid can't read, and everyone's on this forum's favorite thing is back, Particles. Honestly even if I don't end up liking the show, I'll at least get a good laugh out of the topics just because of that alone.
