The world of Gundam is ridiculously large. Besides the official series and high profile manga like Crossbone Gundam and The Origin, there are also the lesser known manga works like Double Fake and Moon Crisis. In what could be considered another tier under those are these short manga works. These are a little bit different from doujinshi, as they are not self published, but published under established companies like Kodansha and Ichijinsha.(formerly Studio DNA) Often the stories in these shorts are run as side content in magazines like Gundam Ace, or are collected as anthologies like the one pictured. Some of them are in fact doujinshis which have been redrawn or touched up by the artists,...

Across the Gundam franchise, there are multiple scenes of characters dying mid sentence, having fans wondering what they were trying to say. Gundam SEED had one of these instances explained by director Fukuda in an interview. Right before Clotho Buer dies, he starts with 僕はね...(boku wa ne / You know what? I...) In the English dub, this is changed to "I'm gonna... I'm gonna..." There are a couple of things lost in translation. Firstly, Clotho's manner seems like he's trying to explain himself or start a conversation. Secondly, Clotho is a character who usually refers to himself as 俺(ore) which is a more rough form in Japanese. Only in this scene does he use 僕(boku) which is a more...

Oyoge! Tayaki-kun, by Shimon Masato This was the first ever number one song by an anime singer. The song first appeared accompanied by a short animation on a children's television programme, Hirake! Ponkikki, in 1975. As soon as it aired, it struck a chord with many adults, including disgruntled salarymen who sympathised with the character. Fuji Television started getting inundated with requests for a record release and spoke to the record company which owned the music rights for the show, Canyon Records(later Pony Canyon). The original singer, Ikuta Keitaro, had unfortunately signed a contract with a rival record company, and thus a new version of the song was recorded with Shimon Masato ...

So, we now have the offical Gundam youtube channel. Separate from the existing Gundam.info channel, this channel will now be where they put up series episodes. Currently episode 1 and 2 from a whole bunch of series are up for free viewing, but for some reason the episodes have all been split into halves. [Click here]

Here's an old story about the ending theme to the first Gundam movie. Takajin Yashiki was a singer who had been in the music industry for 10 years. Unfortunately it looked like his career wasn't going anywhere, and his director reportedly went to the head of King Records, crying and on his knees, begging for Yashiki to be given another chance to release a record. King Records had one condition for him - that he sing the theme song for some upcoming cartoon movie. Back at the start of the 80's anime wasn't where it is today. Being told to sing the theme song to a cartoon was viewed as an embarressment in the music industry, and it wasn't until Mari Iijima's stellar performance in Macross th...

Over the space of this year and the last, gaming has taken quite the zany trip to bizarro land. We’re still not out of the woods regarding COVID-induced delays, units of next gen consoles are currently outselling the games available on said platforms and to garnish, remasters of games thought to never see the light of day again are slated for release. Among them is a reworking of Square Enix’s cult classic from 2010: NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139. While the decision to re-release the original game makes logical sense due to NieR Automata‘s overwhelming critical and financ...
