Destiny Episodes 2/3
Posted: Sunday, October 31, 2004
Screenshots for these 2 episodes have been added. Submissions of episode 2 summaries are also now up. If anyone would like to make a summary for episode 3 as well, please send it in as well.

Donations status has also been updated, it is now less $50.00USD because someone reversed a donation a few weeks back, which is quite unfortunate. This month has been a record breaker for visitors and bandwith. I am already using 1.7GB of space on this current server just for images, my limit was 1.5GB originally. A dedicated server may become necessary in the near future, permitting that I have enough funds to get one monthly, since they are quite costly. Bandwith is EXCEEDING 13GB per DAY on images alone. This does not include the videos I have available. There have been almost 1.8 MILLION server requests (per image basis, not page loads) yesterday alone.

Just wanted to bring this to your attention for now. (stats don't include the forums)

Earthquake in Japan
Posted: Saturday, October 23, 2004
Due to earthquakes that have affected Japan at the time when Gundam Seed Destiny Ep 3 was airing, the full episode was not aired. Only 11 minutes were. It has been rescheuled to air again in the next few days. At that time, screenshots will be made available.

Seed Destiny Ep2
Posted: Tuesday, October 19, 2004
Unfortunately, I don't have the time this week to post up screenshots. I'll do a double post with eps 2 and 3 next week though.

If anyone wants to send in a summary of episode 2 however, I'll be more than happy to post that.

~Afe


Destiny Update!
Posted: Saturday, October 9, 2004
Destiny aired a few hours ago, and as promised, screenshots are on the site. About 400 in total.

Also, made new sections on left menu bar about Destiny. New synopsis (edited), episode list (my translations and romanized Japanese version), character list and episode summaries (episode 1 summary done by me if anyone is interested). Mecha and more detailed descriptions will be posted later.

I'll be updating more, and for those summaries of Gundam SEED sent to me ages ago, they will be posted soon as well as other things that have been submitted.

Destiny Countdown
Posted: Friday, October 8, 2004
Destiny will be premiered shortly! If you want the RAW, join our IRC channel at #GundamSeed @ irc.rizon.net, it'll be released within an hour of it being aired in Japan! Just don't flood and spam.

Once again, I remind you about screenshots that will be posted if you don't want to watch the RAW (no Eng. subtitles/fansubbed).

Also, I am currently looking for donations, recently, a person who donated a large sum of money to the site called or reported to PayPal that their donation was fraud, whether this was true or not is not the problem. My PayPal account has a negative balance as of now, the problem will probably take a while to resolve and donations of ANY amount will be greatly accepted. Payment for the hosting of the servers is due in a few days, and I don't want to have my host shut off the site right after Destiny airs!

Thanks, and come back tommorow!


Fixed Links
Posted: Monday, October 4, 2004
I was going through the image gallery today and noticed a whole bunch of links were completely broken and that many of the pages were not properly coded, so they don't show on certain browsers like Mozilla. I have since fixed that and a total of 22 of the image gallery links are now working properly. Over 1k pictures and thumbnails fixed ^^

Destiny
Posted: Monday, October 4, 2004
Full Metal Alchemist has concluded, and next week will begin the airing of Gundam Seed Destiny on Japanese television. Expect screenshots, synopsis and more as I used to do when SEED was being aired!

For those who have submitted items to me, I'll try to get them up when I can. Thanks for your patience!


Updates
Posted: Sunday, September 12, 2004
Sorry for lack of updates. Been busy since school has started and everything. Rest assured; I will try my best to update as soon as I can and as frequently.

Just for us Canadians out there; Gundam Seed airs weekly Fridays @ 9:30pm EST. SD Gundam airs every Friday @ 7pm as well. Also, and I am quite surprised, YTV has chosen to air Witch Hunter Robin =, also on Fridays, but @ 10:30pm EST.

CNAnime 2004 @ Toronto
Posted: Tuesday, August 31, 2004
August 27th - 29th was the annual anime / sci-fi / comic / and this year the horror convention. Thousands of people attended and line-ups were something you met almost everywhere you went. Nonetheless, it was a great 3 days for those who attended, with many things happening including a 1 hour power outage.

Images of cosplayers and such will be put onto the site later on today or tommorow.

Great news for all the Canadians out there (including me): Gundam SEED and SD Gundam Force will be airing on YTV in September! Although it has lagged behind the Cartoon Network; more Gundam series other than Wing are leaking into Canada through basic cable services!

Update: Gundam Seed Screenshots episodes 41-44 links have been down since the move - they have since been fixed. Thanks for letting me know!

Status
Posted: Tuesday, August 17, 2004
Well I just wanted to say that the server move didn't go to well. After 1 day my account was suspended because of having multimedia on it? So - I'm sticking with SmooveNet.com who have been great hosts since GundamS.net opened up (ooh btw, I get a free domain reg. if you refer me when or if you sign up for them -).

I'll start updating wallpapers and such where I left off before I was planning on the move. Also, please STOP e-mailing me about multimedia files and video files. I had to take some of them off because they ate too much bandwith. Currently, site is using about 7 - 12 GB a day worth of bandwith depending on the day of the week. It was about 20% higher before without the multimedia. Don't want to eat away too much bandwith from my host =)

~Afe


www.Seed-Forum.com
Posted: Monday, August 9, 2004
New forums is up! It may be a bit buggy right now, but that should be fixed soon.

The main move will occur in about 1 day where www.gundams.net will be on the new server. There should be absolutely no downtime, however the Bit Torrent tracker may go down for a while. Stat's might also be wipe.

Gundam Seed Destiny
Posted: Friday, August 6, 2004
Just a little bit of information. The first episode of Seed Destiny will air in Japan on October 9th, 2004. =0

Server move is progressing although not as smoothly as I had hoped.

The contest is postponed for now. Entries can still be sent however. A new date for the second prize will be chosen after move has been completed.

Gundam-Seed-D.org has been moved. A mirror of this site has been made and downloads have already been placed on the high-speed HTTP server so no more FTP errors. I'll be adding a lot more downloads when everything else is finally settled. If Gundam-Seed-D.org's news page is the same as this, then the DNS changes have not taken place yet and you are still viewing the site in the old server.

In Search of Translator
Posted: Wednesday, July 21, 2004

If your interested, please e-mail me =D. Thank you.

New Domain + Soukyuu no Fafner
Posted: Wednesday, July 14, 2004
I've purchased a new domain, http://www.gundam-seed-d.org/ (see why I chose it? =P) If you go to that domain, all the pages will load exactly the same, it'll just have a different URL starting with http://www.gundam-seed-d.org/________. Kind of like a mirror.

Also, if you've been watching other anime like I have then you've seen the striking resemblance of certain characters from Soukyuu no Fafner. Series created by XEBEC and having a very similar kind of show with mecha and such almost like Gundam, or Evangelion or Rah Xephon, etc. Anyway, while I was watching the first episode of this series; I *thought* I saw Asuran and other Cagalli in the series... except Cagalli was a guy, but then I thought to myself; wait, this isn't Gundam Seed!

I continued to think that the characters had been copied from SEED, but the truth is that the character designer from Gundam Seed is the same in Soukyuu no Fafner. His name is Hisashi Hirai, just thought I might share that with you people.


New Site
Posted: Friday, July 9, 2004
The OFFICIAL Gundam Seed Destiny website has been launched. http://www.gundam-seed-d.net/ For some extra pictures and etc. too bad it's all in Japanese ~.~

Gundam Seed 2
Posted: Tuesday, July 6, 2004
Since the very last episode of Seed aired; rumours had alread been floating around about a sequel to Gundam Seed. Now, it has finally been confirmed by numerous amounts of Japanese monthly magazines like Newtype.

Thanks to Khalahaley for informing me of this =D.
Also, a very happy birthday to wiseman7687 on IRC. Not to mention; please come to our IRC channel! #GundamSeed @ irc.rizon.net

There is a page up regarding Seed 2 on the left navigation bar; I would suggest you take a look. Many insightful things are there to see!

Note 1: Busy weeks; more frequent updates starting next week! Submissions will not be posted until then but can be sent anyways, submissions(at)gundams.net

Note 2: If you've e-mailed me in the past week or so and I havn't responded, please e-mail me again. Ive been getting a few hundred junk e-mails so its really hard to tell the difference. Put in subject something like "GundamS" or "Seed" so I can identify it easily.


Gundam SEED Ep 8
Posted: Saturday, June 5, 2004
Don't forget, Gundam SEED episode 8 on Cartoon Network tonight @ 10:30! If you can't watch it, the summary is available on the page.

Operation Carnage
Posted: Saturday, May 29, 2004
Operation Carnage is a 5-episode fan fic so far. It's written very well and has detailed summaries for each episode.

You can either read it via the site, or download .doc files provided, which have pictures, underlined subheadings and is more organized than the version on the site.

Gundam SEED episodes 23-24 summaries have been added. 2 versions of episode 23 are available on the same page.

Gundam SEED episode 7 is airing on Cartoon Network tonight, don't forget!

~Afe


Gundam SEED DVD's
Posted: Friday, May 28, 2004
They'll be out on August 10th. There will be 2 different versions, first is the regular DVD and second is the 1 DVD with a box and limited edition. Length: 125 minutes.

SEED Ep 5
Posted: Sunday, May 16, 2004
Aired yesterday on Cartoon Network. If you want screenshots or a summary, you know where to go, hehe.

There havn't been many updates... mainly because I don't really have much to put up. If you'd like to submit something (ie: fan fic, fan art, episode summaries for SEED or other series) then jsut e-mail it to submissions\@\gundams.net (minus the \'s).

Also, theres been a spike of visitors lately to the site, I'd like to thank you guys for coming back frequently! We hit approximately 10K page views on Nedstat tracker and approximately 18K page reloads on the Extreme tracking (don't know which one is more accurate, but those numbers are pretty big nonetheless).

~Afe


Server Move
Posted: Sunday, May 9, 2004
There's going to be a server move for the site tommorow so it may not be acessible for a while. The forum will also have to be shut down for about a day or so until the move is complete. The move will increase the sites performance and most likely uptime as well.

Image Board
Posted: Saturday, May 8, 2004
http://board.gundams.net/ <-- Installed this new script. A few sites have things like this and I thought it would be interesting to see how it works out.

Will make changes if its successful... post basically anything you want. ^^

`Afe


Gundam SEED Ep. 4
Posted: Saturday, May 8, 2004
Airs tonight on the Cartoon Network so don't forget!

I had to place popups in the main pages as well now. They are set to appear once every 6 minutes or so. Only reason I did this is because the advertisements across the site do not generate enough $$$ to keep it up (for hosting).


Site Outage
Posted: Friday, May 7, 2004
The site was down for the most part of yesterday due to host issues. Obviously its back now =D

Fan Fic
Posted: Saturday, May 1, 2004
New fan fic has been added. The prologue, and chapters 1 through 10 are up. [Click Here] to read. It's quite lengthy, but worth the read!

Also, don't forget about Gundam SEED Ep 3 airing on CN tonight!

Discuss the series on the forums as well, http://forums.gundams.net/, over 1000 users!


Gundam SEED 2
Posted: Sunday, April 25, 2004
Gundam SEED Episode 2 aired on Cartoon Network yesterday night. Screenshots from the Japanese version are available for download! I don't suggest you go beyond episode 2 if not you'll spoil the series (if you havn't seen it yet).

The right-side bar has been updated again with total server costs and it's not doing so bad but it's still in the negative.

|>>Random<<| fact of the day:
Total Bytes Served 233487128079 (HTTP) - Since Oct 2003
Total Bytes Served 116488011835 (FTP) - Since Oct 2003

Don't forget March to Sept (6 months which I no longer have stats for). In the times when I started the site; average bandwith has been around 75-110GB each month.

In it's peak months of SEED in Japan (including September): upto 200-300GB of bandwith a month would be used.

Now, the sites running about 150GB a month (which is considerably more than the past few months since SEED ended in Japan)

Donations are always welcome! ^^ *hint hint*

Some new additions ... soon !

~Afe


Errors
Posted: Sunday, April 18, 2004
There have been a few problems with the site for a while now with loading and I've tracked the problem down to a hit counter that was on the site. I've taken it off and replaced it with another one. So the site should be running okay now.

Also, there was a problem with the linking on the navigation and if you were on certain pages, then you couldn't get back and forth the layouts.

That's all for now.

~Afe


First Episode of SEED
Posted: Saturday, April 17, 2004
The first episode of Gundam SEED airs today on the Cartoon Network @ 10:30pm. There will be an episode weekly so don't miss it if you've missed it this week!

(Sorry for no updates, hopefully soon - quite busy >.<)


Outage
Posted: Tuesday, April 6, 2004
There was a 2 hour outage today on my hosts server. As a result, the forum has gone with it... for now. Hopefully everything will be resotred to normal soon.

Synopsis Pages + ext.
Posted: Monday, March 29, 2004
Short synopsis pages have been made outlining both the Gundam Seed OVA and also the TV Special that have been both recently aired. Please have a look.

The contest closes tonight and a winner will be chosen. It's not too late to enter (scroll down for details).

[Seed OVA HTTP Download] This is a direct HTTP download for the Gundam SEED OVA. I don't know how long it will last up, but if you want to view it, do it sometime soon! I would like to thank all those who have e-mailed me about the OVA, and would also like to thank all those who have downloaded and watched my subbed version. Over 4000 completed downloads with over 225GB transfered! (didn't expect this many to BT it!)

~ Afe


Gundam SEED OVA
Posted: Saturday, March 27, 2004
Yesterday, I mentioned that someone would have released the OVA by today. Well someone has, and that person is me ^^. It's not perfect, but I thought I'd have some fun. /torrent.shtml to download it. Thanks!

Special thanks to: www.angeltowns.com/members/illuscrystal/MST/ for providing the raw. Gomen for not mentioning you in the subs!

Also, the summary pages won't be made today -.-", took quite a while to make the subs for the OVA so I'll be taking a little break.

~ Afe


SEED OVA
Posted: Friday, March 26, 2004
As promised, 572 screenshots from Gundam SEED Special Edition Part #1 have been added.

Now... on to something which surprised me, the 5-minute SEED OVA has been released (or a Phase 'After' the 50-episode series). Anyways, its called 'Hoshi no Hazama de' and it translate to roughly "At the Star's Valley". It features all new scenes (except for maybe 1 5-second flashback) and outlined the lives of the characters from SEED. 102 screenshots from this have been added, it was great watching it, since it was the first 'real' new scenes from Gundam SEED we've seen in a while. Who knows, this could be the last we see of SEED, or perhaps the rumour about SEED 2 will come true someday =D. I think the OVA started as a rumor, nobody believe it, or at least to some extent, but hey, it's out and that's all there is to it.

Now, onto updates for tommorow; a new page for Gundam SEED SE and the Gundam SEED OVA (or special?). Clips from both could be added if time permits.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the subbed version of the SEED OVA was released within a day because it's so short.

~ Afe


~Delay~
Posted: Thursday, March 25, 2004
Unfortunately, I don't have the time tonight to post the screenshots for SEED Special Edt. Part 1 today, please come back tommorow and they'll be here forsure!

Also, anything such as fanart/humour/fiction/wallpapers that you would want to be posted on the site, please e-mail submissions(at)gundams.net. They must be Gundam related, and if they are at least half-decent, I'll post them on the site every now and then.

Only 6 more days left in the contest! (Scroll down for details) =D

Batch #1 SEED Special Edition
Posted: Wednesday, March 24, 2004
571 screenshots from Gundam SEED Special Edition have been posted on the site. (/images.php?gs=special2). These shots are actually from the second half of the special, I havn't taken screenshots from the first part yet as I watched the second part first by mistake. Except them by tommorow or later tonight, for now, enjoy the screenshots =D and yes, there are a few new things in there, you just have to look for them!

Screenshots: Gundam SEED Special Edition
Posted: Tuesday, March 23, 2004
Title:
I've translated the title; and it comes out to be something like
"The Empty Skies/Space Battlefield" (Kokuu no Senjyou)

I'll have screenshots posted for it tommorow. It will most likely be split into 2 pages, for each part. Already have several hundred done and I would imagine that there should be about 1000 shots from the whole special.

Each part is 47mins (without the commercials) btw, it raw has been released, but I imagine it will take fansubbers several days (at the least) because its about 4 times longer than regular anime, plus there are no OP credits and such, and a lot of talking happens.

Also, a new Gundam SEED Special Edition section will be added to the site within the next few days, after the screenshots are up!

Our channel is still up : #GundamSeed @ irc.rizon.net for those who don't know about it!

Video Clips
Posted: Saturday, March 20, 2004
The Rhythm Emotion clips were never fully finished, so I've made one larger file with the whole opening. Just Love (the ED for Gundam Wing) has also been added along with Realize (last ED of Gundam Seed). There are 2 mirrors for each clip; just remember, you cannot have more than 1 connection downloading from the FTP and if there are multiple users downloading, then you may receive an error; please try again shortly!

We also have a few new affiliates, make sure to check their sites!

Netscape/Mozilla Fix
Posted: Monday, February 16, 2004
Thanks to a user who e-mailed me, I've fixed a minor problem on the site. Not too major, but enough to make a few people dizzy. The navigation bars on the left and right on the site were near the bottom and weren't aligned properly. This has since been fixed (only on the 'new' layout). Thanks.

Main Page Changed
Posted: Sunday, February 15, 2004
As you can see, the main page with all the news has changed to fit the 'new' (although its old now ~.~) layout. Comments/Suggestions about how the news should be displayed; please e-mail me.

Posted: Sunday, February 15, 2004
Thanks to the same user sending some more scans ^^. Only 9 more, but they're definitely worth a look at.

I've added some scans of the new SEED PS2 game SD GGeneration SEED ; there are quite a few of them and if you can read Japanese, then you'll be able to read the high-quality scans that were sent in.

Some info for the 08th MS Team has been slightly altered.

Posted: Monday, December 29, 2003
Hello! I've changed a few things on the site... the featured picture on the right bar has been there for months now (?)

Our long lost affiliate Seed Mode On has finally appeared again! I was searching for his site for a while, but then he e-mailed me notifying his site had a new addy. It's great to have you back!

Also, another Special Thanks avatar has been added; Yzak who has donated a lot to the server costs of this site. Thank you very much!

MP3's from Gundam SEED OST 3 will be added soon (not the whole CD) and possibly some new mechas. I have an archive which was donated to me - a long time ago (if you are the one who donated me this, please contact me so I can give you proper credit!)

The forums is still very active and don't forget to take a peak!


Merry Christmas!

Server Upgrades

Chrono Crusade 2!
Posted: Monday, December 8, 2003
Has been released. Please check /torrent.shtml to download.

#Anime-Xen is looking for TIMERS and DISTRO, please contact us on mIRCX, my nickname is Afe (or [kLe^] if I'm not around, or vice-versa)

I'm planning on re-doing ALL of AnimeDL.net since I did a prettu crummy job on it in the begginning. If you'd like to help out with writing anime reviews, just send them over or e-mail me!

Updates, updates, updates: I beleive I have a mecha database somwhere that needs to be put to use, in the NEAR future, hopefully I can get some of that up so we'll finally have someting new on the site.

Donations... please take a look at the right-frame. Looks quite good now, but tommorow, it's going to be 30.75USD more negative. I havn't received any donations in the past month (probably because my lack of updates =P). If you have just a few bucks (every little bit helps) I would be very greatful.

If you want to submit fan 'stuff' in please do!

New Forums
Posted: Thursday, December 4, 2003
I've opened up a new forums for our fansubbing group #Anime-Xen. The URL is http://axforum.gundams.net/ Theres really not much here yet, but take a look anyways!

Also, I will most likely be NOT posting any more screenshots for the time being. They are using way too much space (but I will not be deleting any of them) Currently, they are eating up over 1GB of the space allocated to me.

Please, any suggestions with what *you* want to be added to the site, feel free to e-mail me!

MP3
Posted: Saturday, November 15, 2003
Unfortunately, some of the MP3's will no longer be working since my HTTP host is gone (it was free). I'll move them to the FTP server probably today or tommorow. Additional screenshots either today or tommorow.

Thank You.

Added 440 screenshots of Gundam X episode 5 to the image galleries today! Enjoy.

Lack of Updates
Posted: Monday, November 10, 2003
Very sorry I havn't been updating lately. In the next few days, I'll try to do what I said a while back and also add some more Gundam X screenshots or something like that. =.=''

However, I did fix a few mp3 links a few days ago thanks to an e-mail ^^. Also, if they don't work ( a lot of ppl e-mailing me about this ), you have to right-click and save-as the file, especially if the file is of the ftp.gundams.net pub.

Samples from the Gundam SEED OST II have been added on the MP3 section. First 3 tracks and also the last 3 tracks. Also first track from Character Suits Vol.5 Athrun x Yzak x Dearka has been added. These may not be up for very long, so if you want to listen to it I suggest you do so now ^^

A final section for the fanfic Gundam Reality has been added. It includes a very massive list of all the mecha and different vehicles used in the fanfic, enjoy!

.CGI scripts have been down (thats why no updates here), Forum and BitTorrent tracker were also affected yesterday for about half the day. Nearing the 1000 user mark on the forums!

Downtime
Posted: Thursday, October 9, 2003
Apprently there was some downtime for the site today. Host said it was just this site that wouldn't load up for some reason. Problem is fixed.

Gundam X - New Layout!!!
Posted: Tuesday, October 7, 2003
I actually found the time to do 3 episodes of Gundam X screenshots, so they're all up now, totals over 950. I believe the screenshots count is now over 12 000!

Also, I don't know how long it's been, but HALF the site has been broken for the past week after a script kiddie messed around with the main templates for the rest of the pages. All the sections were pointing to a main.php on the server, but its finally been fixed. I noticed that the number of hits on the site has steadily declined over the week. This is probably one of the MAIN reasons, because almost all the new info. (about 50 or so sections) were all dead, but no worry they are all functioning now!

If you find any other broken links on the site, please e-mail me about it! *Doesn't like a site thats half-broken, must b as good as possible, hehe ^^*

~ Ja


Sorry
Posted: Sunday, October 5, 2003
I know I havn't updated since SEED 50 aired... been quite busy actually. I'll have Gundam X screenshots up tommorow... probably over 400 of them. Also... still looking for Jap --> Eng trans.
If you can, please e-mail me!

Gundam SEED 50 - [Finale]
Posted: Saturday, September 27, 2003
Well... sadly Gundam SEED has ended... after 50 great episodes (well not all of them were great, 'recaps') The plot has twisted and turned and has finally finished.

Not to worry, #GundamSeed @ irc.mircx.com will stay open... we have a great bunch of people who've known each other now for 6 months...
So if you havn't visited before, please do!

As for this site, it will stay up for as long as I have money to host this site... along with www.AnimeDL.net. I am counting on fans like you to chip in, even its its just a few dollars. Remember, every little bit DOES count.

Stats for site: [thought it might be interesting to let all you out there know]

- Average Bandwith Usage: 6.8GB (includes; site, forums, various multimedia avilable)

Sep 2003: Daily=|Hits Files Pages Visits| Month=|Sites KBytes Visits Pages Files Hits

Sep 2003: Daily=|918290 824457 45205 4388| Month=|44550 95352217 118490 1220541 22260361 24793846

The term hits is just the amount of files loaded. One more note...

The site has FINALLY reached 1 000 000 Page Views ^^. This goes for ONLY the site itself, if you include the forums, well who knows how high that number is.

Now... about those screenshots I know everyone has been waiting for... they're here! After watching SEED 50, which was great of course, I went right to work with the shots. In total, there are 432! Which is about 1.5x more than usual and 2x from what I used to make. Not only this, but each image is 170-240kb. Just to finish off the series, I wanted to make a large little collection. They total just over 90.6mb for this ONE episode.

So many things to say today; probably one of the last, but the image archives now contains OVER 11000 [eleven-thousand] images and screenshots ^^. I do believe that this number will have a chance to double once I fill in the 'blanks' for eps that I did not yet do, but raws needed to be found first. As well, after the Gundam X shots are added.

Whoa.. that was a lot of stuff today! and what we've been waiting for has finally come and gone! The ending of SEED... [well for those who havn't seen the RAW yet, await sub'ed versoin *grins*]

~Ja ne!




Completion of Submissions
Posted: Thursday, September 25, 2003
Both of the fanficions that have been posted over the last few weeks now (I think, I planned they'd be out a lot sooner, but been unusually 'busy') Chapters 22-END [30] of Mobile Suit Gundam Reality was added and a 'summary-style' format of the newer fic which was sent in a while ago was also completed.

I'll be making shots of Gundam X also quite soon. Hopefully, they can be done in batches, ie: eps 2-5, 6-9, 10-14, etc. There will be the current numbers in shots, so approximately 250-300 HQ each ep.

... awaiting the end of Gundam SEED, only about 48 hours left until it airs! *shivers* what is in store for us? ^^... and of course, shots will be out very soon. I'll make a special effort to take 'unusually' large amounts of shots from this ep. Maybe double or 1.5x, we'll have to see. I also just found out that theres a huge gap in shots from Gundam SEED, if I can hunt down the raws I'll be making shots for those as well as time permits.
