    Gundam 00 has begun airing in Japan, and subbed versions of the first epsiode are already out. I have to say, this is awesome. I had some doubts about the Gundams themselves. Good thing I was proven wrong....

    ...especially when Excia was shown...

    So who also saw the first episode?

    irrelevant

    Anyways, based on the first epsiode alone, you get to see a lot of stuff regarding the Gundams themselves.

    Excia has no propulsion system but can still fly using that giant cone on it's back. Aside from the giant one handed blade that it carries (can also act as a gun), it also has beam sabers just incase.

    Gundam Dynames is the one with the sniper rifle. Actually has a decent rate of fire, and has a giant aiming scope that is behind the yellow crest that always shows up on Gundams.

    Gundam Kyrios is, pretty much, an orange Wing Gundam. The actual Gundam form wasn't revealed in the first episode; only the plane form

    Gundam Virtue was that giant, bulky Gundam with the bazooka. Fires a bunch of charged shots that can wipe out several units at once

    I watched this yesterday. It was pretty good. I'm definately looking foward to seeing more.

    By the way, Gundam Meister is what they call the pilots of the Gundams. The Gundam you're thinking of is Dynames.

    Very well then. I was trying to figure out that Gundam's name while trying to read the subs. Probably didn't pop out at me like the others did

    I'll admit I had to google for it. I knew it wasn't Gundam Meisters though. xD Though, I do recall the name being said now that I've seen it again.

    I do not understand. What point are you trying to make?

    Mind explaining the story any? Is it part of the UC storyline, or is it another new incarnation?

    I think a new Incarnation. The UC storyline ended way back in the mid 80's with the movie Char's Counter Attack.

    Gundam 00 takes place in our time in the year 2307.

    UC originally ended with Char's Counterattack. However, a new novel will be coming out titled Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, which takes place in 0096, three years after Char's Counterattack

    Ok...now where would I view said episodes?

    Also, looking at Wikipedia, if you want to get technical, G-Saviour is the last in the UC timeline (UC223), not Char's Counterattack. Or if you'd rather forget that horrible live-action film, Mobile Suit Victory Gundam is the last in the UC timeline (UC0153). So :p

    If you can't find them on YouTube, we can't help you. Not because we don't know of course.

    lol, funny enough we both must think alike. Amazing what wonders Youtube can offer...

    Anyways, got done watching the first episode, can't wait for the next ones to be subbed and released!

    It's a great looking show. You're missing out if you're watching it with Youtube quality.

    Anyway, Gundam00 reminds me of Dancouga Nova. Except, you know, they kill people and unfortunately they do not combine. =( It would be awesome if they did though.

    Meh, I'm too lazy to find something other than Youtube. Besides, it seems ok in quality to me as I don't full-size the screen.

    You can't find the episode any more, because of Copyright infringment.

    So are there any plans for this to be aired in America or this one that just will stay in Japan forever?
