No, nothing is formalized beyond First Gundam next year, but its pretty much
inevitable. This is a major cash cow for Bandai ...nearly zero startup
costs. They've already got the models, the action figures, and yes, even the
show, ready and produced. Throw together a dub track, and watch the money
roll in from us silly gaijin ;p
It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that over the next few years we're
going to be inundated with Gundam (mmm ... Gundamy!) considering that a)
anime is hot b) gundam is hot and c) gundam makes money d) bandai likes
money and e) bandai has lots of gundam ;p
