Mobile Suit Gundam 00 機動戦士ガンダム00 Screen Shots
This is at least the second best Gundam, I’ve ever seen. I really liked the original, but the last one I watched “Gundam Seed” was just boring to me, the fights almost didn’t seem to matter and the politics were often convoluted and confusing at least I was confused. So I held off watching 00 even though I got many recommendations to watch it until the first season was finished and I could marathon it. I did last weekend and was blown away by it. It’s got politics but only as a small part of the overall story and that helps to make sense of why the characters are behaving the way that they are and never seemed convoluted or confusing. The story centers on the characters much like the original Gundam which I enjoyed so much, and the battles are incredible and really matter as a high tech force takes on overwhelming odds over and over again. I can’t wait for the second season and the conclusion to the storyline, next October. Gundam 00 has been Licensed, so I look forward to the DVD releases, hope they start coming out soon. I'd definitely recommend this to Gundam fans or other fans of SF anime like Crest of the Stars.
