Preliminary announcement in Gundam Ace on sale today. Serialization of “The Blue Destiny” begins in the next issue. Based on the original Sega Saturn game, which at the time, I was in charge of the scenario. This work will become a new Blue based on a new setting of the Universal Century. The artist is You Taichi.

[Database] – Updated

A random update of sorts: 08th MS Team Trivial Operation! I’ve been trying to find some information on lesser known Gundam titles as of late and finally managed to track down the old magazines that serialized this story. They’re en route from Japan so hopefully I’ll get to share them with you soon. In the meantime, I’ve updated the database with more accurate information on this particular gem of a series. Stay tuned for big boobs Raychel in the near future ;)

BANDE DESSINEE CHANGES

Bande Dessinee continues to surprise me with drawing out what happens in the novel as well as adding other things. If Yas had illustrated the manga version of Unicorn there’s no doubt that it would be far superior than the original novel.

For those wondering, Gibney was killed in the novel when the Sleeves occupy the Nahal Argama.

Hi all,

I’ve updated the database entry for this particular series. Noteworthy additions: comprehensive character listing and volume summaries with chapters. Mechanics and timelines in the near future.

[DATABASE] – BLAZING SHADOW

Hi all,

I’ve updated the Blazing Shadow entry of the database with more characters, mechanics and plot information. There’s currently a summary for Volume 2 as well as a “story thus far” which covers the events in Volume 1. Continuing on, I’ll summarize some points from Gundam Ace dating back to the September 2014 issue (Chapter 7):

09.2014 Gundam Ace

– Cain talks to Wings about everything up til now.
– In order to make up for losing military strength, they pay a visit to an arms dealer by the name of Gervan
– The requested goods are a production model Guncannon and new weapons and ammo for the Silver Haze.
– Since a Guncannon is unobtainable, they’re offered a Saberfish instead.
– Later, a Dom Barrage appears to be loaded onto Cain’s HLV.
– Wings and the others begin their preparation for retalliation against Faraq
– Faraq prepares their squadron. Rougi takes command of the Musai MS forces while Gald, Azu and Mahagan take command of their respective Chivvay forces.

10.2014 Gundam Ace

– Faraq gets their revenge on Shutendouji.
– With Rodinia at their backs, Wings in the Silver Haze, Seria in her High Boost GM and Fernando in the Saber Booster respond to the attack.
– Gald, Azu and Mahagan are each accompanied by 4 other units.
– Gald’s High Mobility Gelgoog’s damaged right arm has been repaired with a Z’Gok’s.
– Wings takes on Gald’s team while Seria and Fernando square off against Azu’s team. Mahagan’s team goes on watch for sniping.
– Wings and the others pretend the mothership is at Rodinia while awating the movement of the enemy ship concealed in the nearby colony of Mauritia.
– Cain is also standing by at Mauritia.
– Faraq fleet falls for the trap in a spendid fashion. Three Chivvay attack Rodinia. The Plunder, having learned of the enemy ships positions, sinks one of the Chivvay’s with its main cannon. Another is neutralized by Cain’s sniping.
– Wings squares off against Gald with a beam saber trident again while Seria and Fernando head off after the remaining Chivvay after having dealt with the Azu team.
– Cain squares off against the Mahagan team that realized he was shooting.
