Gundam 00 S2 Episode 1: The Angels Advent

Finally, the return of the terminator! Gundam Exia! Or what remains of it. I would like to skip giving a summary but I thought it would be better to write down my thoughts together with a brief summary. As such, SPOILERS ARE TO BE EXPECTED!

Thoughts and comments:

Wow, Gundam 00 Season 2 sure started out with a big bang! Flashy mecha engagements, big nice fireworks and a revamped political landscape. Same ol gundam with even more new mechas! Tis a good season to begin. The insert music is very fitting as well for the A-laws which chills me whenever listen to it. Cold heartless A-laws? Not surprising considering ribbons, probably a cyborg is in charge of A-laws, made up of a bunch of blood thirsty warmongers. Or not. Just doing their job, ridding the world of kataron. so what is kataron?

P.S. Will add in more pictures later!

Gundam 00 Season 2 Ending Theme [Prototype]

Note: The video is fan-made. It is not the official ending video. Looks like the song we keep hearing over and over in the trailers is the ending theme. However, it appears less rock and plays at a slower pace than in the trailers…frankly speaking, season 1’s OP and ED are still much nicer to me so far.

Vocals is by Chiaki ISHIKAWA who is the lead vocalist for the band see-saw. Her previous songs for anime are as below, most notably Gundam Seed and destiny’s Ending themes.

Japanese Scientists watches too much Gundam 00

Japanese scientists are so hyped up on the possibilities of building a real life space elevator that in just two months time the country is playing host to a conference designed to set a production timetable. Carbon nanotube technology has advanced so rapidly that a material capable of withstanding the amazing forces in the space elevator cable is almost within reach: according to the chairman of the Japan Space Elevator Association it’d only need to be four times stronger than the current strongest nanotube rope.

The potential benefits of accessing space by crawling up a cable versus launching rockets are mind boggling…especially when you realize it could be 100 times cheaper to get there than using a Space Shuttle. But building a more than 36,000km-long carbon rope (or more likely a series of parallel ropes) to connect an Earth-based “launch pad” with a geostationary-orbiting elevator hub still seems a lot like science fiction. Yet it turns out that development of carbon nanotube technology has seen a more than 100 times increase in the fiber strength in the last five years: four times more strength certainly seems possible.

The Space Elevator Association’s director also thinks technology similar to the Bullet train’s could be used to build the elevator cars, since nanotubes can be used as electrical conductors.  [Timesonline]

To japanese: your tax dollars at work sending space shuttles for no particular purpose. Build me a gundam please.

Gundam 00 Trailer 5

This new trailer is pretty short but considering the second season is fast approaching, this is just the beginning of what bandai will feed us for the next half of the year! woohoo! It appears that the translation of the organisation Arrows was wrong, it’s supposed to be A-Laws. Soo, instead of being outlaws…they are A-Laws? Any guesses as to what A represent?

Also, saji is locked up with a laptop plugged to a pink Haro. I reckon he is on Ptolemaeus 2 after being recruited and disobeying orders, just like lockons, edit : allelujha (Thanks to Lordfoamy for the headsup, uni is killing my braincells) Wonder what he did…point a gun at Setsuna? =p

Gundam 00 Season 2 CM 3

Another teaser of the new season of Gundam 00 had been released. In this CM, the background song is PROTOTYPE performed Ishikawa Chiaki. Most likely this would be the ED for the new season of Gundam 00 since the previous teaser trailer revealed a song by UVERworld as the OP. As for the preview, several of the characters missed out from the previous preview has been shown in this one – including Ms. Sumeragi, Livonze, and the new Lockon Stratos (which is unmistakably Lyle). Also in this preview is the appearance of the new character for the season.
