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.

  1. Well yes it is amazing ^^ also the second season will be out on Oct, unsure of the exact date. I like Gundam I will always love them since Amoru from Gundam 0079 ^^
    I think the people who are working on Gundam 00 also worked on Gundam Seed, just a hunch.

  2. I tried watching an anime thing once but there were no sparks between us, so that was the last time i’ve heard of it :(

  3. What can i say about this one? It wasn’t love driven like the previous Gundams, it was more politics driven, it touches reality more than any other Gundam series, and it’s a joy that the top pilot in this series Setsuna F Seiei who’s real name is Soran Ibrahim is Arab, and has thoughts of most of the Arabs who want peace in the Middle East, it’s a different new experience in the Gundam series. Though watching him say “God doesn’t exist” was weird.

    The other pilot of Arab origin i know of in the Gundam series is Quatre Raberba Winner the pilot of XXXG-01SR. Though the usage of Arabic names is usual in the Gundam series like Lord Djibril and his predecessor Muruta Azrael in Gundam SEED.

    It’s one of the things i love about the Gundam series, is that they are very international.

    Gundam 00’s second season will start in October of 2008 with Setsuna all grown up.
