Review: Modile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie – Awakening Of The Trailblazer

Plot Summary: It is the year A.D. 2314. Two years have passed since the defeat of the ruthless A-LAWs, and the new Earth Sphere Federation government has sought for peace by establishing a weapon-free world. However, a long forgotten ship that was sent to Jupiter 130 years ago somehow returns to Earth, seemingly with no signs of life onboard, but actually bringing with it a dangerous new alien threat—the Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shapeshifters (ELS), who have started assimilating Earth’s technology and inhabitants. Now, with humanity at risk of total destruction, the Celestial Being makes its return to defend against the invasion of the ELS.

Its been a while since I have seen the Gundam 00 series and I can remember that it was an epic series, and this movie was something to look forward. It takes place a few years after Celestial Being have done their work and earth has moved forward with their tools of peace. Setsuna and his team are back but there was a new threat and they have to find away to win. Its an epic ending to a great series, it answers a lot of questions from the original series, and you will love the big battle at the end. I can never get enough of Gundams and I was hoping that this series would continue at some point but this movie you have a satisfying ending.

Gundam Fix Metal Composite MSZ-006A1/C! Z plus[Red]

A metal Gundam figure is rare to find, luckily for me I have received two as a gift from a friend. One is blue and the other is red, they came in pretty big boxes. I started with the red one since I have been watching the last Gundam series and it got me worked up. It turns out this figure can have about four different variations, two are robots and two are planes, and it gets pretty complicated.

I unpacked the boxes, kept everything its place but spread around me on the floor. The instructions are in Japanese but its pretty clear from the pictures, but sometimes I had a hard time trying to figure out how exactly they stayed in place. I didn’t go for the plane version of the Gundam I’m thinking of doing that for the other one, with the Robot version you have a lot of options. The bigger robot version looks damn cool but the normal version looks great as well, so I went halfway and beefed up the normal version a bit. Didn’t take too long, one hour and a bit of sitting on the floor and tinkering with it and all the different pieces and I have my Gundam put together.

Now to find a place for it, after searching around I decided to put it in the location of the evil Mazinger and move that next to my other Mazinger Z figures. Right now its sitting next to my Sonos Speaker and looks pretty good. I really have to reorganize the items I have in my room, too many things piled up.

Review: Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Plot Summary: It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built, each under control by the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations (formerly United States of America), the Human Reform League (Russia, China and India) and the Advanced European Union. However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war. Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tiera Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the various other factions.

I always do enjoy the Gundam stories since they do revolve around these amazing machines. Every time I watch a Gundam anime I end up wanting to pilot one of those machines. This anime starts off a little different then all the others, this time they belong to an unknown entity which is trying to stop the war between the three powers of the globe, and this plan seemed to have been set in motion from two hundred years in the past. As usual the anime itself is spectacular, great music, and the character development is perfect for this anime. Any mecha or Gundam fan will love this version of Gundam 00, I know I did and the best part there will be a continuation of it.
