    So it's been a year since Gundam has now gone back in print for both sides of the shore. However the UK has gone behind schedule for many reasons. I figured a checklist on all of the titles related to Gundam would be a neat thread. You can also place your frustration on the Gundam UK sets on this thread.

    I'm adding the US side stuff as well, because.

    I'm very close to moving to the Nozomi releases, the Anime Limited releases are nice but are really slow.

    Not specifically Anime Limited related, but Nozomi has tweeted indicating they do not possess the rights to the original Japanese audio for the Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy (and will instead only be including the remastered audio, which was subject to a bit of "Lucasing" for the 20th Anniversary).

    We could assume from this that Anime Limited will have also been pushed into using the remaster.

    As if by magic the @Anime 0079 trilogy is delayed till the 15th feb
    I have now started with Turn A. As I was disappointed the UK hasn't had it scheduled yet, despite it apparently being done at AL's behest.

    Merde! I was looking forward to that...

    You weren't expecting it to actually make its release date, were you?

    Seeing as it got pushed back at one point and then moved forward again (IIRC), I thought it at least stood a chance.

    Such a shame that AL wont be releasing After War Gundam X and 0080 War In Pocket in the UK :'(
    They are some of my favourite Gundam shows.
    Guess I have to import them at some point just like I did with Gundam Build Fighters and Gundam Build Fighters Try even tho GBF saga will get a UK release in the future but it might be like another year or 2 due to AL speed of releasing Gundam in the UK

    I just stumbled upon some of the soundtrack for Gundam Unicorn, and it's pretty damn amazing. Are we expecting the TV version of Unicorn to get a home media release at some point?

    edit - I see it's on Daisuki, so if i'm desperate I have access at least :)

    Ayep! That whole show has some stellar production values. The music is a real high point though. I remember seeing a PV for the OVAs featuring the song Boom Boom Satellites did for it. That came at a point where my enthusiasm for Gundam was on the wane. It got suddenly reignited, and that was when I picked up the RightStuf DVDs of the series.

    Incdentally, for those importing Gundam DVDs from the US, I'll repeat a warning I posted a while back. The earlier print run of Gundam X collection one has a minor but very annoying disc fault, which RightStuf confirmed for me over on their Facebook page. It causes playback to stutter during an episode on disc 4. This as fixed on later print runs, so maybe try to make sure you can get a disc from a later pressing.
