    Are there any Gundam fans here?

    I ask because of this...

    It was first rumored in 2011, but it seems to have been semi-confirmed in a tweet.

    And for those who don't know, Gundam: The Origin was a manga series that started in 2001 and just finished in 2011, and it's an update and retelling of the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam anime. And now they're turning Gundam Origin into an anime.

    In Star Wars terms, it would be like if A New Hope was an animated series that came out in 1977, and is now going to be updated to today's animation standards. In Japan Gundam is a big deal, in a way it's like Star Wars and Star Trek combined from a popularity stand point. In a way.

    Anyway, my two geek things are Star Wars, and to a certain extent, Gundam. Universal Century Gundam, to be exact. So I'm excited.

    If Episode VII is a 10 on an excitement scale, an animated Gundam Origin is a solid 8.

    Where's @Ramza? I know he's a fan. As for me it's not an anime I've ever watched, but I'd probably be open to it.

    I don't browse this board is where I was. :p

    I'd say my excitement for The Origin anime adaptation probably vastly outpaces my excitement for Episode VII; I'm more of a Gundam fan than a Star Wars fan. Between that, Unicorn wrapping up, and Vertical bringing over the manga it's looking to be a good couple of years to be a Universal Century fan. Which is nice, since I'll need all the help I can get to purge all traces of AGE from my memory.

    I'm not a Gundam fan but my younger brother is probably pretty stoked about this. Gundam was his comic of choice when we were younger. He got me into Robotech but I never really did the Gundam stuff.

    I don't browse this board either. :p I somehow ended up in the social thread and haven't left since. I'm afraid of what I'll find out there.[face_nail_biting]

    It's a Greek tragedy, Todd.


    If a Greek tragedy took place at Chuck E Cheese's.

    Consider it. The lights are dim, there are stools at the slots games, the atmosphere is nothing but music at war with buzzers, sirens & clinging coins, and the staff walk around asking if you would like your drink refilled while the kids sit at their game going into atrophy with their arm on the lever or ski ball or joystick... gotta win those tokens so they can cash out $90 worth of mom's money into a plastic spider ring.

    Chuck E Cheese is so stupid now. They are smaller and have way less games. I took my son there during the summer and after 15 minutes he was bored.

    I hate Chuck E Cheese! The last time I was there I was told that it would take 30 minutes for our pizzas to arrive because apparently they were very busy even though it looked like here may have been a dozen or so people in the place. So of course I told my kids they could go play and of course the minute we leave they bring our pizzas. They were cold and tasted like plastic by the time we got back.

    I remember my high school football coach leaving school early to get in line for some of us to see episode 3 at midnight. Can't wait to wait.

    I bought my house in the Gayborhood. Our street signs in this section really do have the rainbows at the base. Quiet, lovely little area. And, I would perish without WaWa.

    Oh, and ESPN isn't really wrong there. Mobs rioted when we WON a World Series.

    I had tornado go through my neigborhood late last night and now I have a huge tree in my backyard that wasn't there yesterday. Thankfully it didn't land on my house and except for some minor damage to a few of the neighbors houses it doesn't appear that it did anything major. I don't think anyone was hurt so that is a very good thing.
