  Yeah, but there's so much more of it! :-)

  That was just my idle speculation. So far, the only thing known about the
new series is that it will be in the UC continuity; if Kota's scoop is
correct, we can also assume a Gundam mobile suit appears in it. All else is
less than hearsay.

Personally, I don't relish the idea of AV condensing the full-length
series; quite frankly, I don't trust them to do it. If they're not willing
to release the entire series, maybe they should relinquish the license to
someone who is...
