    Gundam G in Reconguista

    Didn't see a topic about it, le new Gundam series is new.

    Not sure what to think, the Artstyle dosen't look as good as it once did (see the old G-reko poster to see) but hey Tomino!

    Though it seems oddly peaceful...so I'm thrown for a loop.

    Apparently takes place after the UC, in a time frame called the Reguild Century...again don't know how I feel about it.

    I'm all over it. Looks great to me, and as others have stated, it seems reminiscent of Turn A. Sold!

    Yeah, I'm going to watch it for sure. The animation and art style will take some getting used to, but it doesn't look as foreign as Turn A so no problem there.

    Dunno, I just don't have the Faith I did when it looked like this:



    Dunno I'll keep a look out for it for sure, but as of now, I dunno.

    Oh well I still have the Origin and Unicorn to look forward too, and it can't be as bad as AGE at any rate. Also still better looking Mecha than Victory, if only slightly...

    You have to realize that the poster above was a concept design, but I get you.
    From that poster I wasn't expecting things as they were now.

    But I love how Tomino works things in. Notice that non UC products he did never burn an old theme like an Earth Government.

    In a year from now, people will say Reconguista is Amazing, it's Good, and some will say it's next to shit.
    But nobody will say Tomino was not unique. He added some elements of other mecha anime sure, but he never copied another Gundam show.

    Another thing I like about him is how the main robot doesn't stereotyically have a v-Fin like all the other AU Gundams. He makes it look different. And it's refreshing.

    Reconguista feels fresh.

    I saw the concept drawings of the new Gundam. Looks like Exia was bashed together the Reborn Gundam. Looks a little odd, and the characters seem rather, strange for some reason. But who knows, the story might be great. I'm a sucker for a good story.

    I said it before, and it looks like I'll have to say it again.

    I'd rather become a die hard Katoki fanboy than say that design is anything but stupid! It's supposed to look like a gundam, not a damn LFO. Doesn't help the art style looks so damn much like Eureka 7. But at least it's not a mustache, I'll give it that.

    Design wise, I feel quite tempted and entirely hooked!
    Hopefully, this turns out to be a good show! (Not many doubts in my head, reflecting on Tomino's a good mecha creator and writer)

    If there's one thing Gundam has taught me over the years, it is to always remain open minded to new possibilities. Sure it does look a little like an LFO, that that could be because the character designer for the series is the same guy who designed the Eureka 7 characters.

    Exactly. And I have yet to watch a Gundam series that I did not like.

    It's that kind of thinking that gave us aliens and a fucking giant space flower.

    Not the same here, most I can stomach (Even Destiny to an extent) but there's Victory and AGE, and as I grow older I like Victory a bit more...though not much. (Still Nothing tops Victory in ugly but I'm talking plot here)

    ^ Dude, all this talk about Victory is making me want to watch it, haha. I just have to make sure to shut my brain off so I won't get bothered by all of the dying characters.
