Sadly I can't imagine they will do anything to depict the Vagans X-Rounder Corps (2nd and 3rd gen) as the elite forces they were supposed to be this time either. The corps from 3rd gen were particularly downplayed.

I wonder if they will actually attempt to fix the problems with Zeheart's character by the end of the series. Kio is a lost cause, but I do would like to at least see the Vagan receive some better treatment tis time around.

Oh well, I do at least hope we get so see some of the missing Vagan MS from the games and files:

-Zedas C
-Wiegel
-Abigel
-Dielga
-Gurruzine
-Egoz
-Glud

And last but not least, the Vagan's next generation mobile weapon:

But of course, if they used that golden power, Vagan's victory would be assured. the sight of golden glazed turkey lemons with their drills of doom would break the Earther's resolve and send them scattering. Not even Kio's hax burst mode could withstand the onslaught. This is what happens when a Vagan accepts the power of meat!

AGE Memory of Eden first 24 minutes! no subbed ver available, sadly...

Points of interest:

-How Zeheart got in Eden
-Genoace II using Shaldoll Rogue Beam Tomahawk
-Obese bully ommited
-Daz and Zeheart tag team Asemu during his first sortie
-Lots of redrawn/new battle scenes
-More school BS

Looks cool so far

So, Romary and Asemu are now osana najimi. I guess the idea was to make their future relationship more natural... by recycling the relationship that Flit and Emily had. Whee.

Oh, well, the first 24 minutes weren't bad. Of course, the part of the original show that they drew from wasn't bad to begin with. It's the coming later half of the movie that has me worried.

Why, Strike my good man, of course it's the later half that is distasteful. Why do you think they only showed the first twenty four minutes? :mrgreen:

I'm kind of sad they seem to have missed the chance to animate 'It was Obright who grabbed the Dorado's leg', a retcon I believe some of the printed sources added.

This is actually looking pretty good. Some definite changes for the better. Makes me all the more dissapointed that Destiny HD is stopping at 'Meer jumps down the stairs this time!'.

We've seen 24 minutes from Memory of Eden in which time it has already revised several parts of the Asemu arc for the better whilst still retaining the same story structure and key ideas. In contrast a project like Destiny HD is taking the redo of a controversial show more conservatively, deciding important changes mean things like Meer jumping down the stairs to Athrun rather than just running. I know the SEED HD project's hands are tied more than MoE but when I see something like this that is clearly making best use of a second chance over a project like that which is just changing really pointless things for arbitrary reasons, it's hard to not wish for more.

Ah, I see. I suppose, from Sunrise's point of view, a successful show wouldn't warrant any substantial change in a remaster.

Does anyone know how many movies are supposed to be released for this? One or two? Because somehow I doubt a single movie will be able to fit in 34 episodes of content and do it well...

Ya don't say? :lol:

But, no, there hasn't been anything to indicate that this is going to be a two-parter deal.

If they cram all of Generation 2 AND 3 into one OVA. We'll be looking at bigger mess then 0083: Last Blitz of Zeon...

Actually it'll only concentrate on scenes where Zeheart and Asemu appear. Expect the Kio Earth Arc to be a quick overview, no Kio on Second Moon besides his return, etc..

Judging from the trailer the focus is on the Eden part(1 hour), then Wolf death and season 2 final(30). Season 3 starts with recap(20), moon battle(15), then final battle(25).

Apart from Swordia fight and new final duel, don't expect anything groundbreaking. I doubt they'll fix the out of nowhere Sid+Vagan Gear final boss fight...

Sadly they won't expand on white AGE 2 vs Sid flashback with G-Xiphos appearing

I would just like to point out the sheer horror of coming across the images of the preview they released, and first thing I thought I saw was Kio's head on a bikini clad girl's body...then realizing its just Romary...and still to be horrified by the fact he looks WAY too much like her for his own good in that regard *shivers*
