Reconguista in G

Postby Kaori » Mon Nov 10, 2014 6:09 am

Gundam Reconguista in G (ガンダム Gのレコンギスタ Gandamu G no Rekongisuta?) is a 2014 science fiction anime series and the thirteenth incarnation of Sunrise's Gundam franchise, created by Yoshiyuki Tomino. It is his first major Gundam project since the 2005-2006 Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation film trilogy and will debut in Fall 2014. It is set in Regild Century, the era set after the Universal Century, and it will follow the adventures of a pilot trainee named Bellri Zenam in the Capital Guard, an organization protecting a space elevator. The character designer is Kenichi Yoshida, and the mecha designer are Akira Yasuda, Ippei Gyōbu, and Kimitoshi Yamane. Yugo Kanno is scoring the music. Madman Entertainment streams the series in Australia and New Zealand via AnimeLab whereas Viewster streams the series in English and German subtitles in Europe.


It's set 1000 years after UC and Mobile suits now have toilets.

Didn't they always? Otherwise... long-range space missions... nevermind.

I saw the first two episodes and it was thoroughly weird. You can tell it's by Tomino.

It's very weird...but no surprise there. Personally I am very bothered that the animation resembles eureka seven so much (I find myself forgetting this is gundam I am watching)

It should be noted that Tomino hates mecha and everything about them. What he likes is "cinematic" story-telling, which he seems to think means anything can happen at any time contrary to the expected narrative flow. Which equals a show on acid.

Well, Killemall said this show is for the kids, I'm avoiding watching it till it ends and I still wanna call BS on him, this is killemall we're talking about, this guy is worse than Urobutcher.

Wasn't Mobile Suit Gundam an attempt at a kids' show?

Nope, it was an attempt to be like Space Battleship Yamato, a Space Opera, heck, even the RX-78's original color scheme was Gunmetal grey to look more like a weapon till the sponsor(Clover, a toy company) suggested a more colorful look to appeal to kids.
