Nah. Just gotta fulfill the not-so-blatant-30-minute-Gunpla-commercial-show quota.

It's weird enough that the second season hasn't come out over here on blu-ray yet.

No such show.  That was a hallucination.  Swamp gas.  A weather balloon.  Something like that.

Given the Gundam franchise's general obsession with turning its now-vestigial War is Hell message into straight-up misery porn... I can all too readily imagine that'd end up as Puella Magi Madoka Magica but with giant robots.

Not sure if that's better or worse than the comparisons made between Macross Delta and Pretty Cure...

Masochistic Suit Gundam?

So taking a page from the book of Symphogear? But going full armour?

I'm gonna make an major left field theory on what "The Witch From Mercury" is about. I imagine it'll feature the daughter of Scirocco Paptimus after being ousted from the Jupiter mining fleet after her fathers failed coup, she was raised in the harsh Mercury-someyhingerother-fleet, and returns as an adult to take her revenge on the Earth Sphere.

Also, this could be placed after Hathaway, and detail the events that finally lead to the isolated state we see things in during Victory. Bonus points it it has old man Kamille or his progeny.

I’m pretty sure it’s an alternate universe story rather than uc. Although maybe the whole witch thing is not so much regarding the pilot, but the abilities of the gundam. Kinda like how the unicorn had the ntd thing and other weirdness like narrative. The creators just gave up on pseudo science and called it magic because they couldn’t even explain those abilities

I heard this news and I'm pumped - I'm a huge Crusher Joe and Venus Wars fan so I'm excited to see Yasuhiko back in the director's seat.

Sorry, but I think you've been trolled.  "Cucuruz Doan’s Island" is the infamous Gundam episode that was officially disowned by everyone involved in it.

It'd be like Disney announcing a feature-film remake of The Star Wars Holiday Special. 😅

Yasuhiko could come out and say he was directing a remake of the SW Holiday Special and I'd still be pumped. His movies are rad and I'm excited to see what his take is. I know it's cool on the internet to react to news of everything with cynicism, but I'm not about that life.

EDIT: Actually I thought about this more, and a Yasuhiko-directed remake of the animated sequence in the SWHS would be hella rad. It already has the cool Moebius design aesthetic.

I’m not sure why they decided to redo an episode that even the creators thought was trash, but if they do it right maybe it could be good. I don’t even remember if I’ve seen it since the English version left it out.

I just remembered, Cucuruz Doan's Island is it's own spin off manga from Gundam The Origin. it's where the north american type and FSD gundams came from. I'm assuming this is what they're adapting.

I don’t really keep up with the manga and spinoff stuff, so this does seem far more interesting than the actual episode judging by the synopsis. There also seems to be a large amount of different types of mobile suits that will more than likely have variations in the anime, and of course be commercialized into model kits and toys
