Gundam Unicorn Premiers Worldwide Simultaneously!

Gundam Unicorn Movie

Angry Zen Minion Sirhouse writes in with the most excellent news that Sunrise will release Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn worldwide simultaneously! I don’t believe I have enough pants to contain the awesomeness of this announcement! The movie premiers later this winter. No word on format, but I imagine the movie will be released online worldwide and premier in theaters in Japan.

So the dude with the giant 80’s pompadour is Banagher Links. I’m guessing he’s our new Amuro, a civilian thrown into the cockpit of Gundam Unicorn because, well, that’s what young kids do in the future. Apparently, New Type powers make your hair totally awesome. His love interest is Audrey Burne which is totally awesome because now I have an excuse to try to get my wife, also named Audrey, to watch Gundam.

Only You Can Make Zone of Enders 3 Happen

Zone of Enders

Angry Zen Minion Kamen Rider Jester writes in with word that if you really really want another Zone of Enders game, Hideo Kojima wants to hear from you. In a recent MSG4 podcast, Kojima-sensei said that if there was enough fan interest, Kojima Productions would make Zone of Enders 3. All you have to do is shoot him an email.

My one concern is the platform. MSG4 is a PS3 exclusive. If ZOE3 is exclusive as well, that makes yet another ZOE game that I can never play. When ZOE came out of PS and PS2, I had neither console so there was no way for me to enjoy the giant roboty goodness. Probably should see if ZOE2 is around somewhere since I’ve got a PS2 now. But if this happens, I pray for a 360 version!

Gundam Unicorn Movie is Real!

Gundam Unicorn Movie

AZM Ally Mike Dent writes in with the UH MAY ZING news that the rumored Gundam Unicorn movie is real! So far, all we have are some preliminary leaked details and the scan above. Yasuyuki Muto will be handling the script. You may know him from Afro Samurai (never saw it myself). Kunio Okawara will be around as always. It just wouldn’t be Gundam without Okawara-sensei. But the news I care about is that Hajime Katoki will be on the mechanical design team! Damn straight! After all, they are his designs.

I expect we’ll have more news within the week when the magazine actually hits shelves. But man, it’s a great freaking Gundam Wednesday!!

Giant Robot Romance

Angry Zen Minion Henry “Pootie Chang” Pham sent over the video for Bloc Party’s “Flux” featuring a giant robot love triangle and a giant monster dance line. Really, that’s all you need to start off a really excellent day!

Beware Snap Peas, Your Days Are Numbered!

My brother, the original Angry Zen Master, sent me this awesome video depicting how a modern samurai defends us against the scourge of mushrooms, snap peas, bb pellets, and iron pipes. I found his bb cutting skills to be so much more impressive than the final pipe cutting demonstration. If Skynet starts building Terminators and Hunter Killers with iron, we know who to call!

Kamen Rider Gackt Journeys Through the Decade

So far, I’m totally hooked on Kamen Rider Decade. It’s like a big fanfic love letter to fans of the Heisei Era Kamen Riders from Kuuga on. I haven’t watched all of the Heisei Riders so I don’t get all the references from each world. But I’m really loving every bit of it. I do think Takumi was a bit too much of a door mat, but the Decade version of Faiz was pretty good (though I do miss the hand shake when he henshins). I was a little surprised we didn’t see Kaixa in Faiz’s World, but I suspect he’ll show up again. Can’t wait to see Kabuto’s World. We’ve already had cameos from my favorite Rider pair, Kick and Punch Hopper.

Decade’s design has grown on me. I was a big detractor when the pics finally came out, but seeing him in action is totally awesome. DiEnd is kind of growing on my too although that’s more due to Kaito being such a freaking badass. I think Yuusuke is a great foil for Tsukasa although I wish we got a little more Kuuga action. I suspect that too will change as we come to the end of the world-hopping.

The theme song is sung by Gackt and this is the video for the full version of the song. There is quite a lot of slow mo abuse and when Decade goes to Final Attack Ride-o, he hangs in the air for like a year and a half. Still, I really dig the song. So here it is.

Yes, Virginia, There is a GIANT ROBOT BEETLE!

AZM Ally Solkana sent along this video of a giant robot kabuto beetle. This is what happens when you let your Kabuto Zecter take the ‘roids. This dude spent eleven years to build Kabutom RX-03 in his garage because… do you really need a reason to build a giant goddamn robot in your garage?

We salute you old Japanese dude. When Skynet finally gets sick of our shit and launches its attack, it’s good to know that we have a giant kabuto beetle on our side.
