Changes from Source Material Edit
Since this version of Double Zeta is stemming off the Zeta Gundam New Translation movies (which, for all intents and purposes, pretty much write the show out of canon), naturally, there are going to be a lot of changes to the story:
- The most obvious change from the original Double Zeta is that in the original, Kamille was left in a vegetative state after the events of the original Zeta Gundam. Here of course, since it follows the New Translation movies, Kamille is perfectly fine, even taking Judau Ashta's place as the main character of the arc.
- Similar to how Usagi's friendship group is based around her relationships with the Sailor Guardians in her original series, some of Kamille's bonds on the team are based loosely around Judau Ashta's crew in the original:
- Kamille: Judau (as previously mentioned)
- Usagi: Leina Ashta (little sister)
- : Beecha Oleg ()
- : Mondo Agake ()
- Marin Reagan: Iino Abbav (soft spoken comrade)
- : Elle Vianno ()
- : Roux Louka (confident fighter that uses her appearance to her advantage that often chastises the others)
- Puru and Puru Two, of course, maintain their original places in the story.
- To help establish the main three Puru sisters (Elpeo, Two and Twelve), about each third of the season is used to introduce them and get a grasp on their personalities: Elpeo at the beginning of the season, Two in episode 17 (the same episode where Puru was introduced in the original), and Twelve (and subsequently the other clones) in episode 32 (the episode where Puru Two was introduced).
- In addition to that, rather than being thrown into the Psyco Gundam right away from her stasis nap, Puru Two is given her Qubeley Mk-II and hops into the Mobile Fortress later on. In the storyline, this is explained by having her superiors test her Newtype . However, for narrative purposes, this is to help establish the bond between her and the original Puru, as well as several of the other Knights, and makes the battle with the Psyco even more dramatic.
- Speaking of the Psyco Gundam, the original version from Zeta appears rather than the Mk-II, since A), it was never created by the Titans in the New Translation timeline and B), the original wasn't seen getting clearly seen destroyed in the movie as it did in the original series.
- To shake things a little in the story, Judau's crew appears as a small platoon working under Axis Zeon, and are a constant sight on the battlefield. In fact, Judau even becomes one of Kamille's biggest rivals.
