I got an announcement in my inbox from Bandai announcing a street date change for Gundam 00's first releases, the Season 1 Part 1 special edition and regular releases. Apparently due to a manufacturing error the dates have been pushed back from June 16th to July 21st-- ouch, that means they'll probably miss Expo.

That said, I'm curious: how many of you watched at least the first season? How many of you are planning to buy the first DVD set, which includes the first nine episodes? And how many of you will be buying the special edition of the first release, which includes the first volumes of both the direct Gundam 00 manga adaptation and the Gundam 00F side story series?

I'm looking at the Special Edition, largely because I'm interested in the side story. Besides, at $49.98, if you figure the manga volumes are worth $20, that leaves just the episodes at $29.98, but the regular edition is $39.98. So if you want the manga too, I think the Special Edition is a pretty good deal.

That does sound like a good deal. ^^
Actually I more fancy the first season than the second season but as a whole this is the order in which I like the Gundam series from best to worst.

Gundam Wing, After War Gundam X, The original mobile suit Gundam, G Gundam, Zeta Gundam, Gundam Seed, Gundam 00, Gundam Seed Destiny.
I don't think I've seen all the gundam series. ^^;;;;

It's a Gundam series that I like. I'll get it down the line in its Anime Legends collections.

I saw all of Gundam 00 and I don't think I will be picking any of it up. I found it to be entertaining.

@Schwindelmagier: Seeing "all" the Gundam series would be DIFFICULT! @_@

I'll be picking it up since I enjoyed most of the first season. I pre-ordered the SE for about $27 during SE from Rightstuf during that Bandai sale a few month ago.

You know... am I wrong or hasn't this already been delayed one or two times before?

@godofchaos: Yeah, Bandai delayed a bunch of stuff, including Gundam. That said....I'm not too worried about them *not* releasing Gundam.
