Zeta Gundam Movies and More from Bandai

Coming soon this June!

I got a copy of Bandai Entertainment's June mailer, and there's an interesting new release coming up! That is, of course, the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam movies-- movie I: Heirs to the Stars, II: Lovers, and III: Love is the Pulse of the Stars. They'll be available individually (SRP $24.98 each), or you can buy them as a full collection for $64.98. At the moment, they're scheduled for June 22nd. These will be sub-only releases.

Here, have a trailer (and yes, that is Gackt's theme song):
 
 
Additionally, the second volume of Kurokami-- on DVD with subs and on Blu-Ray as a dub-only release, as you may remember --has been pushed back to June 8th.

But back to the Gundam thing. I don't know much about these movies, but  I kinda dug the trailer. Who's planning to buy?

Bandai Ent. has had them licensed for a few years (I think since 2006-2007). They're only now getting a release AND it's sub only? Any other features? I'm worried this will be a very barebones release. I'll probably stick with my Zeta Gundam TV series DVDs.

@Niko: isn't this the remastered one?, where they put new scene regardless of continuity?

 I'm in for the Zeta movies. I'm a little peeved that they're going to be sub-only but it's Gundam so it means I'm buying...

It has Gundam in the title and it's one of the good series. I'm buying it.

I believe it is sub only because these movies were never really brought into america in the traditional sense.  You know like TV spots and showing up on Cartoon Network?  I have noticed the recently released Zeta series they have allowed some different sites to stream also only seem to have subs as well.  Lots of older anime fans who got on board with the early gundams way back when they were semi new are already used to only having a sub option anyway.  Never fans seems to also be the savy type that sticks to mostly fan subs as well....  So I guess they figured why spend the cash yeah?

@Karkarov: Nope. Zeta TV is subbed and dubbed.  
 
@cfatalis:  Yep, when Tomino got happy, made a happier ending, and took out one of my favorite Char scenes.

I was referring specifically to the recent online streaming Bandai is doing to promo it's release of the Gundam Unicorn Blu Ray.  The only version of Zeta I have seen them offer for streaming online has been the subbed only version, unless there was a site that did have the dubbed option and I just missed it.  However, yes, you are right the original show did have dub work done.  Now that I think about it some of those original voice actors may no longer be available as well so that may play a part too.  Of course most of the time companies don't hesitate to change with the times *shrug*

@Niko: in gundam tomino shouldn't be happy, in other series he should be happy

I just wish the zeta tv series had been able to keep its openings and closings. I may invest in these as I have been crazy for UC gundam series since Mobile Suit Gundam was released on crunchyroll, now if only we could get a sub only ZZ,Victory, X or Turn A Gundam that would be great.(afterall I know more about alot of them from the video games........-_-;;;
