    Gundam character designer considers remake

    So I just saw an interesting read on ANN: http://www.animenewsnetwork.cc/news/...series/.120085. So apparently Yoshikazu Yashuhiko, character designer for 0079 and author of Gundam: The Origin, is not opposed to making a remake of 0079. I think a remake would be excellent as it would introduce those who haven't seen the original series to the story without having to sit through 0079's severely dated artwork. Plus, they could perfectly merge elements from both the TV series and the trilogy movies with the right amount of episodes. However, the effort involved to bring this to fruition would not be easy. So what do you guys think? To remake, or not to remake? That is the question.

    Sounds like an excuse to just release more RX-78-2/Char's Zaku II stuff without having to make a new series or world setting. Just give all the old 70s designs to katoki to redesign and mess around with and Bandai gets an entire new line of ver ka suits to milk.

    That sounds more like Bandai's excuse to go ahead with the idea, rather than the artist's reasoning. Who knows if Bandai actually wants to do this.

    Art<Money.

    When has Bandai ever cared for the former?

    Re: Gundam character designer considers remake

    I really hope they don't personally. Don't see much of a reason to redo all of 0079, if you're gonna milk UC give us something not one year war. I've enjoyed Origin Relatively (I've had the same complaint about Origin Manga and the OVA, it gets too damn Char wankery and that's coming from me) and I admit I like Thunderbolt yeah (especially the Manga-mostly because of pacing, though the show's OST is GOAT) but from a complete personal bias stand point, don't much really have a desire. I can see why people would sure, but I'd personally just rather see the resources put elsewhere.
