Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Frozen Teardrop Picture Drama

Picture Drama Episode “The Upcoming Battle – Epyon Ares”

This is the all-new Gundam Wing Frozen Teardrop picture drama included on the 2nd series BD Box. For anyone unfamiliar with Frozen Teardrop, it is a sequel set 20+ years after Endless Waltz, in the year 0022 of the Mars Century. To quote the narrator of Endless Waltz, “as long as mankind exists, there will always be battles”, and on Mars, a new conflict has broken out that sees the five Gundam pilots involved once more, along with brand new Gundams.

       

This picture drama reunites the voice cast of Gundam Wing and adapts a portion of the novel written by series head writer Katsuyuki Sumizawa. Like most picture dramas, there is minimal animation. Unlike our previous release for this picture drama, we have subbed this one! Subs were posted on YouTube some time ago. While the efforts of the translator (Amir Fikri) are certainly appreciated, the subtitles were a bit clunky and overly literal at times.

 

While I’m not a translator by any means, by using Amir’s subtitles as a baseline and cross-referencing the translations of the novel found at Inchoate Oeuvre, I’ve rewritten the subs to flow smoother and hopefully match the tone of the official subs the series and Endless Waltz use. Those of you who do speak Japanese, keep in mind that I wrote for flow and style rather than 1:1 translation, but I don’t believe I changed anything that impacts the story.

       

For anyone that has the raw versions included in the Gundam Wing series batches, I’ve created a patch to add the subs to the copy you have! You can get that below. Enjoy!

Gundam Anniversary Shorts

Gundam Anniversary Shorts

The following is a collection of three shorts created for the 10th and 30th anniversaries of the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, included in HD on the Mobile Suit Gundam Movie Trilogy Premium Edition set. A 30 minute feature called “The Impression of First Gundam” was included for the 20th anniversary, but is not included here. The first two are reposts of the previously released encodes from last summer, while Ring of Gundam is a new release with subs added.


10th Anniversary Short – All That Gundam

Released in 1989, All That Gundam is a short featuring the Gundams seen in the original Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam, ZZ Gundam, and Char’s Counterattack, leading up to the reveal of the RX-78-NT1 Gundam “Alex”, along with the main characters of the soon-to-be-released Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket OVA.

30th Anniversary Short – Ring of Gundam

Also released in 2009, Ring of Gundam was Yoshiyuki Tomino’s return to Gundam for the first time since the Zeta Gundam: A New Translation film trilogy, and his first wholly new entry since Turn A Gundam a decade earlier. This CGI short stars a soldier, Eiji, who travels to the Ring Colony to search for the so-called “Beauty Memory”, which is said to contain all of mankind’s memories. Upon encountering Beauty on a hilltop, he is told that to decipher this data, he must obtain “Amuro’s Legacy”. Now Eiji continues his quest to discover the key to mankind’s salvation.

       

This re-released version features subtitles for the dialogue. These subs were originally done by MovingLines, but I’ve restyled them and made a few fixes for the spelling, punctuation, and tweaked a couple of words used in the dialogue. For those of you who downloaded the raw version last summer, a patch is included to add the subs. Enjoy!
