C.E. 73. 2 years have gone by since the war ended. Gilbert Durandal leads ZAFT after the death of Patrick Zala. An Orb-born Coordinator, Shin Asuka, becomes the newest topgun of ZAFT after Athrun's departure. His eyes reflects sorrow perhaps because he is lonely and lost his family. He himself represents the "War's Tragedy". Why did he join ZAFT and participate in the battlefield? Revenge? A mission? No one knows. Meanwhile, Athrun is part of Orb and right beside Cagalli. He worries both about the heavy burden of protecting Cagalli and the feeling to do something about the world.
One who joined ZAFT and one who left. The story begins when the two cross.
Shin Asuka - Protagonist. A Coordinator born in Orb. After losing his parents and younger sister during the Orb invasion of C.E. 71, he moved to PLANT and enlisted in ZAFT. Durandal finds him and he becomes a pilot of the Impulse Gundam. Very talented 16-year-old pilot. Wears the red uniform meaning he belonged in the top class of his military cadet school.
Lunamaria Hawk - A crew member of the battleship Minerva, which becomes the mothership of the Impulse. Wears the red uniform, elite pilot uniform identical to Shin's.
Athrun Zala - Now 18-years-old. Retired from ZAFT and defected to Orb. Doesn't use his real name, going by a pseudonym instead and serves as Cagalli's personal bodyguard. He was able to make acquaintance with Shin and others when he attended the secret conference between Cagalli and Durandal at PLANT.
Gilbert Durandal - After signing the Treaty of Junius (the Armistice Treaty) as the successor of the Temporary Council, he becomes the Supreme Chairman of the Council. He pushes forward with Clyne's political ideals and is deeply trusted by the common people. Currently seeking reconciliation with the Naturals.
ZGMF-56S Impulse Gundam - ZAFT's newest Gundam. Relies on batteries instead of nuclear power. Since its energy can be replenished from a long distance by its mothership, the PS (Phase Shift) armor can operate a lot longer. The cockpit area can transformed into a fighter called the Core Splender. The Impulse can be broken up into 3 separate units. Like the Strike Gundam, the Impulse can be further equipped with 3 different packs (or mode). It is called the Force Impulse Gundam (ZGMF-X56/α) when it's in the aile-mode. Note: the inconsistency between the two model numbers (one with an X and one without) has been pointed out but these are what's being reported so far on Japanese sites and only one scan that provides a glimpse of a number at all has turned up. Until further info is revealed, assume the numbers aren't quite set in stone.
Even though they're not mentioning Kira and the others, I'm sure they'll make their appearances.
Here is a picture from the source. From left to right it's Shin Auska, Gilbert Durandal, Lunamaria Hawk, Athrun Zala and ZGMF-56S Impulse Gundam.
So is this going to be a series or a movie? I asked that because the synopsis might seem too simple for another 50 episode story. Since everyone seems to be wanting to reconcile with the Naturals, where is the antagonist? I really hope Kira and Lacus comes back.
Another series. Those are not all the main characters I bet. They need to leave a lot of stuff a secret for course. ^^
