I have 4 theories:
Spoiler:
1. Prequel set during Calamity War - from what I've seen most people in Gundam community really want to see that.
2. Totally original sequel with new cast set years after 2nd season.
3. Series following Ride Mass and other Tekkadan members that decided to avange fallen comrades with less than peaceful means.
4. Show following Mika son, Akatsuki.

A very underrated franchise of Patlabor now has its own day dedicated to it in Japan.

It's time for a bit of sad news.
Mechanical animator Kunihiro Abe passed away on the age of 50. He worked on multiple titles in studies AiC and Sunrise(including multiple Gundam instalments).
Deepest condolences to the family.

Newest teaser trailer for Fafner the Beyond reveals 12 episodes theatrical run. This leads me to speculate that the episodes will have runtime longer than 25 minutes.

I already mentioned it on my Twitter, but the fact that the pose from newest Gundam Narrative key visual became such a meme is hilarious.
