Tomino comments on Hathaway's Flash:
I'm looking forward to the movie - Original author, Yoshiyuki Tomino
As the original author, I am very pleased and surprised that a novel I wrote almost 30 years ago would get a movie adaptation, let alone a trilogy. When I heard from the people involved with production that the themes in it are ones necessary for the current world, I went back and took a look, and was just stunned.
The real world may very well have regressed instead of progressed. That is why there is meaning to show these themes to the real world here and now, and this is happening thanks to the Gundam fans leading the way.
I have nothing but thanks to everyone pulling the series along.
At the same time, I can imagine that each and every one of you also wishes for the hope of the message of this work, to let the next generation pioneer the solution.
In other words, I imagine that because the generation of Gundam fans that has become adults has realised that the power of fans alone do not have the power to break the stagnation and regression of realism, they have passed it on to this work.
I believed that while there is no need for anime to be realistic, if it is something to be shown in a public place such as in a movie, it should be something that resonates widely with youths.
I believe with the generations of creators being younger, and the audience being younger, these younger generation will one day blaze a trail to the innovation of man - Newtypes.
So he's saying, the younger generation will A Waken into Trailblazers to Innovate mankind.
What does Tomino mean by this?
I'm very excited about the Maganac, but at the same time the inevitable P-Bandai kits puts me off. They couldn't have included parts to make at least one other like how the NPD Leo has various heads and shoulders (that is I'm assuming, if it did have variations I figure pictures would have been shown by now.).
On the flip side I can't believe the HGCE Destiny has all those effect parts, they were a highlight of the first HG for me and might make me get the new one.
