Crossbone Gundam has had half a dozen manga series at this point, but it still can’t get an anime version.

Mainly the same reason why we won’t have any more thunderbolts. This completely destroys canon and Bandai has stated that anything animated is considered canon. Things like that, Thunderbolt at this point and rebellion 0083 are I forgot the actual term but are like “What ifs” of UC.

Absurdity. How can it “destroy the canon” when the original manga was written by Yoshiyuki Tomino himself as an official sequel to Gundam F91 which has nothing else to contradict at the time?

Thunderbolt has always been its own thing. The reason we didn’t get more Thunderbolt animation after Bandit Flower was because it had largely caught up with the manga by then iirc. I think they could do more if they wanted to. On the contrary, they could wait for it to be done and they will do it all at once.

This is incorrect on every possible level. You have absolutely no evidence to back up this baseless guess. Also, not only does what you said have no basis in reality, but on a meta level, it’s incorrect. There is nothing in Thunderbolt that contradicts actual CPU canon. You can complain about the mechs being too advanced (or something like that), but Gundam was never consistent with that anyway. Why is Thunderbolt messing up all of a sudden?

If you’re referencing the author’s tweet, you’re wrong. The Thunderbolt author said he didn’t feel constrained by the timeline…it’s a WEALTH of difference to all the events of the Year-Long War and Zeta…especially when, again, nothing happened in the story that makes it unable to adapt to the UC. There’s a lot about the 7 years between OYW and Zeta that we don’t know. This bizarre theory that someone on reddit probably started because of a mistranslated/misinterpreted tweet by the author of Thunderbolt needs to stop.

Also, I could easily come up with an unsubstantiated (but much more plausible) theory that Sunrise is slowly expanding the UC timeline past UC 100 with works like Hathaway, potentially leading to filling in the gaps of F91, then possibly doing Crossbone . But we’ll see and I don’t claim that what I say is correct or even probable. It’s a question of money. Will the Crossbone models sell? If the answer is yes, then we’re much more likely to see anime. If not so be it. Note that none of these theories have anything to do with Thunderbolt (also now that the manga is ending, we might see more animated ones in the future).

A gundam doesn’t care about cannons. Two crossbone post the first manga is a mess of crazy, just bad ideals that would be a tough sell on a good day.

I feel like AGE was pretty close to an adaptation of Crossbones. Just look at the AGE-2 Dark Hound and tell me he doesn’t look like the Crossbones. It’s not 1:1, but there is a lot of overlap.

You know, if Gundam fans are asking for an adaptation of the Crossbone Gundam manga, what they’re actually asking for is further development of its story and ideas, with expanded storylines and redone designs, and not really a direct adaptation .

Something like what happened between the Gundam Unicorn anime and its original novels.

As fun as the Crossbone series was, it really contained a lot of crazy ideas.
