Sadly in most cases of money vs. integrity in this world we have created, profits are going to win out. Worth remembering I think that a lot of media franchises, despite being the products of writers and artists who might truly believe in the messages of their work are still ultimately owned by corporations with no such scruples. I’ve been laughing for years about Marvel pushing “progressive” messages while its chairman and largest shareholder is right-wing Trump chum and megadonor Ike Perlmutter.Watching the Freedom Gundam statue opening ceremony and the lack of awareness and scruples is killing me.
As someone who got into Gundam partly for its allegorical nature, sure is great to see Bandai and a lot of people involved with SEED crap on the whole significance of Freedom because a corrupt nationalist country has a booming economy.
Remember, kids. Stand up for others. Unless there's money on the table.
Film begins streaming on July 1 // Netflix announced on Thursday during its Geeked Week livestream that it will exclusively stream the Mobile Suit Gundam:...www.animenewsnetwork.com
Gundam: Hathaway will be on Netflix from 1st July. It's unclear if that's internationally.
It will be nice to see it so soon (if the UK is getting it), but there goes any chance of an AL blu-ray, I suppose.
I randomly remember this and then this week the announce they're releasing an American deco Gundam kit for fans there.Know what still bugs me? A few years back at an MCM panel, Sunrise said they had Tomino record a message for UK fans. But it was apparently glitched so we never got to see it and no attempt was made to release it by other means later. It's seemingly locked away on a hard drive somewhere.
Similarly, they filmed us to put it on an extra on an Origin Blu ray and then never used the footage in said extra.
