Updates Archive: 2008|
Current - 2009 - 2006
2008.12.26: Hey, it looks like staff-selected episodes of SDGF are airing Tuesdays 10:30PM on Tokyo MX (japanese channel).
Here's its info page, it's nifty. :3 Random, but hey.
2008.12.25: GUESS WHAT I GOT TODAY :D
Scans + info page forthcoming.
Also updating the links to YesAsia in the Taiwanese Release section, everything's in stock if you want to pick up a cheaper foreign-language set~
In case updating the DVD page takes too long, the new URLs are:
Volume 1 • Box 1 (vol.2-4 with space for vol.1) • Box 2 (vol.5-7) •
Box 3 (vol.8-10) • Box 4 (vol.11-13)
Altogether it's still cheaper than the Japanese boxset, but instead of new things you get liner notes in Traditional Chinese.
2008.12.04: Added We Love SD Gundam.net to the Links page. ^^ It's a japanese site that links to the other official SD Gundam sites, like SDGF's and Sangokuden's, and has a news feed for SD stuffs (in japanese, naturally).
On Sunrise's SDGF products page, it describes what's in the boxset and also has a wallpaper at the bottom of the page, available in 1024x768 or 1280x1024. c:
I haven't bought one yet. It's so expensive! ;3;

2008.10.11: If you're feeling like bolstering international economy, or just particularly rich, Japan finally put out a limited-edition DVD boxset for SDGF. :O It's a steep 50,000Y/USD$500 at CDJapan, and a little cheaper at USD$422 at Amazon.co.jp.
It does have some new content -- a special feature called "SD Gundam Force Haten Taishogun Arawaru!! Zako?" and a 4-panel manga called "Soul Drive Memories". I want, but ye gods it is so expensive D:
2008.09.06: Heyyy, an actual update! :D Blazeraptor at DeviantArt/Flickr sent me a whole bunch of screenshots of the PS2 game, so I put those up! Check 'em out!
Also, the Fanlist has been updated with two new people. :3
2008.08.15: Fanlist updated with two new people~

2008.07.10: Fanlist updated again~
2008.06.30: Fanlist updated! ^^; Sorry 'bout the delay!
• Sonken kit page (Sangokuden)
• Ryofu's kit page has been started but is not yet done (Sangokuden)
• I have a few cool lists, they've actually been around for some time but I haven't yet made a page that links to them proper. So I'm just going to point them out here: BBSenshi List, G-Generation Series Kit List, Misc List. None of those are complete, but the BBSenshi one makes a decent effort.
2008.05.04: DVD page updated B)
Episode List tweaked with the titles on the discs, I'll do another check when I actually see the episode titlecards. XP Me, obsessive? What makes you say that...
Okay, I've just watched 27 & 28 -- AWESOMESAUCE. Kibaomaru's voice actor is win.
The opening song is Taiyou ni Kogarete, and the ending is Kokoro Odoru, wtf XD (Particularly odd considering I recall hearing that the Philippine airing used Kimi to Boku :O)
2008.05.03: SEASON 2
RightStuf.com shipped my preorder EARLY :O!!!
and more discs.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be other there, swooning.
2008.04.26: SDGF 11 scaps~ Lots of Lacroa.
Also, Fanlist updated! :3
2008.04.05: Versal Knight Gundam's kit page is done. c:
2008.04.04: Added a link for the OST at Amazon on the music page :3
Also, fanlist updated~
Finally, I added a link to the unsorted character art (HQ, clipped & cleaned from the Taiwan DVDs' liner notes) to the art pages. :3
2008.04.02: GUYS, HEY GUYS!!!!
I was going to upload this yesterday, but, like, April Fools and all that.
SEASON 2 ENGLISH DUB DVDs, APPEARS TO BE FOR REAL AND NOT PIRATED ;O
Mine's already preordered. <3 It's also on Amazon!
In the meantime, massive linkdump time! AthrunZero uploaded all the old fansubbed versions of SD Gundam~ You can check the individual part/episode names over at the SDG Collection Box page.
• MK1 [Rapidshare] [MegaUpload]
• MK2 Part 1 "The Rolling Colony Affair" [Rapidshare] [MegaUpload]
• MK2 Part 3 "Gundam Densetsu" & MK3 Part 3 "Chapter of Truth" [Rapidshare + Rapidshare] (you have to get both of these files so they can recombine when you uncompress them; it's kind of weirdly set up though)
• SD Gundam's Counterattack Part 1 "The Storm-Calling School Festival" [Rapidshare]
• SD Gundam's Counterattack Part 2 "SD Sengokuden: The Violently Final Chapter of the Sky Castle" [Rapidshare]
• MK3 Part 2 "SD Sengokuden: Ninja Battle at Zuum City" [MegaUpload] [Rapidshare]
• MK3 Part 3 "SD Sengokuden: The Scrolls of Heaven, Earth, and Reason" (sub-part 3 is here) [MegaUpload] [Rapidshare]
• MK4 "A Dreamlike Maronsha Trip to Space" [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• MK5 Part 2 "SD Sengokuden: The Ghostbusting Five Gundam Team" [MegaUpload] [RapidShare]
• MK5 "Crazy Race" [MegaUpload + MegaUpload] [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• Gaiden Chapter 1 "Lacroan Hero" [MegaUpload + MegaUpload] [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• Gaiden Chapter 2 "The Legendary Giant" [MegaUpload + MegaUpload] [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• Gaiden Chapter 3 "The Algus Knights" [MegaUpload + MegaUpload] [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• Gaiden Chapter 4 "The Knight of Light" [MegaUpload + MegaUpload] [Rapidshare + Rapidshare]
• Gundam Evolve #14 [MegaUpload] [Rapidshare]
If you need a plugin or codec, I recommend the Combined Community Codec Pack; if you need a player, BSPlayer.
IMO, it's totally worthwhile registering an account at MegaUpload, it's free (unlike Rapidshare) and it shortens up your waiting time by a fair bit.
2008.03.11: Kit page for Sousou of Sangokuden~
Also, a neat Japanese blog of an SD fan's kit customization adventures. :3
2008.03.09: Kokuryu kit page~ Although I suspect it isn't particularly exciting unless you're a fan of Kokuryu ^^;
2008.02.29: I moved Bakunetsumaru and Bakushinmaru's kit pages to the /bbsenshi/ subfolder, since they're.. part of that line. YEAH. Also it keeps the number of files in the /art/thumbs/ folder down. |D

• Incomplete pages for USA Flextion Captain, Dom and Cobramaru; added another photo to Flextion Deathscythe's page.

I.. I was actually going to do more, but the broken furnace was more troublesome than I expected. D: -freezes-
2008.02.03: I'm on a roll! =o
• Tenkai Bushou Senjinmaru, from the BBSenshi line, has a kit page :3

2008.02.02: Because I keep forgetting to mention it here (WUT): if you're too broke/lazy to actually buy the book, you can find raw scans over here. Please don't report me. :c

Almost done scanning the SDG Collection box. :3 I am glad I have so much webspace for this site; so far the scans add up to 81MB. ^^;
Also added a little ETA to Grappler-kit's page; six months after I assembled him, his decals are starting to fall off. D;
Ooh, trailer for Sangokuden -- with a theme in Japanese & in Chinese! :3
New things: SD Gundam Collection Box • Shiba-I Sazabi Kit Page :D
