Haven't bothered to watch it yet, all I can make out of it from lurking /m/ is the following:
Traps and Yaoi Fodder

Seen 1 episode.

A. Their sniper's NAME is Lockon.
B. It's a bad sign when the emo steaming angst prettyboy announces "I'm depressed" for no reason to no one in particular while he's taking off. But it makes him easy to pick out.
C. The girl with the braids is popular porn fodder.

Seen the first four eps it's pretty interesting and it is very political (in a good way)

Saw one episode as well. Exia reminded me a bit about Turn A's butterfly mode.
Traps and yaoi indeed.
WTF is the deal with that girl with the old guy's voice?

Only seen the intro, but I can almost sort of tell who's supposed to be a guy or girl. So it's a step up from SEED, I guess....

Oh, they all still look like girls. Just slightly less so than in SEED.

Traps and Yaoi Fodder
Kouga Yun, the woman who did character designs for G.OO draws lots of Shounen Ai\Yaoi.
Unisex mecha shows appeal to a larger audience -- robots for the boys, boys for girls... "yaoi sells" or something like that.
Not that this matters much, for me at least. I'll form my opinion when I watch more than 2 episodes of the show. But so far I haven't found a hook or a tun off for myself in GundamO_O.

what translation are you guys watching? Tthere is more than one.


Title: Re: New Gundam Series "Gundam 00"

I'd stick with Conclave-Mendoi (because Nyoro~n made a huge mistake) but then again Nyoro~n did just team up With Zeonic corps and are the fastest

so it's your pick speed with better English but possible translation mistakes or a great translation later in the week.

What was Nyoro's big mistake?

In their original release of episode 3 they mixed up the relationship of the gundams and the Battleship saying that


SPOILERS












 the Gundams needed to be charged by the battleship while it's actually the other way around













END SPOILERS 


they apologized and re-released the episode but there is still a chance they could make another mistake.

Oh I see. I was watching the re-released one, so I didn't notice. =P

I just know that watching GundamS.net's made me cringe when they did something so obviously wrong such as translating Ceylon Island as "Seiron Island."

I saw a big ugly rant about Nyoro~n's being hopelessly incompetent at best, and intentionally screwed up at worst.

Apparently the whole carrier/Gundam relation is only the tip of the iceberg.


I've got the Conclave-Mendoi subs... for the first 2 episodes.
I'm sure I'll download some more later. But it's not at the top of my to-do list.

Yeah, but them again, it's not like we actually pay for the translation, and at least they put the ASS file only for download, so you don't get stuck with having to get a whole ep just to see a bad translation...

Note that also they try to make it to be released in max 2 days (they are jsut screwed joining with ZC, those guys are slow as hell), so of couse they tend to make stupid errors...it's speed over quality.
