Remember Me | register
As mentioned before in my review of Code Geass, I'm not a fan of mecha. However, recently, I've been hooked to watching mecha anime and the main reason is, of course, the pilots. \(^^)/ Years ago, I did try to watch Gundam Wing but failed terribly as the girl in the show irritated the hell out of me and I couldn't finish it. I jut finished watching Gundam 00 and when I have time, I want to watch Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny.Anyway, a movie sequel to Gundam 00 "A wakening of the Trailblazer" will be released very soon in Japan (18 September 2010). It will be elaborating on events after S2. I can't wait to watch it!Story: (8/10) – GoodThough there were 2 seasons of Gundam 00, it's obvious that the makers were planning for that right from the start. Some of the characters who seem completely useless and redundant in S1 suddenly become important in S2. We also learn more about the background stories of most of the characters in S2.I love S1 as the introduction was done very well, it was well-paced and it ended with a big 'bang'. S2 did a good job in reintroducing all the main characters but the pacing of S2 was a little slow and it felt a little draggy at times.Characters: (9/10) – Very Good4 good looking Gundam pilots and all of them have very different styles and personalities. However, in my opinion, the character who stands out the most is not a Gundam pilot. He's also my most favorite character from the series.Graham - I love his passion! He's most likely the most passionate guy in Gundam 00.Lockon - There are 2 characters in this role. I prefer the elder brother as his personality is more appealing to me.Setsuna - He was pretty emo throughout S1 and I didn't quite like him then. His character matures in S2 and he displays more manly action.Tiera - He's most likely the most beautiful guy in Gundam 00. He's pretty cold and emotionless throughout most part of S1. However, his character developed and he's definitely more likable in S2.Allelujah/Hallelujah - Well, this guy has split personality. So whenever he goes on the wild mode, he calls himself Hallelujah. Personally, I prefer Hallelujah. I think Allelujah is a little wimpy.Art/Animation: (10/10) – AwesomeI love the characters designs and the designs of the Mobile Suits, in particular Exia and 00. The animation is, as expected, really good. The battles between the Mobile Suits were very well-animated.Music: (0/10) – Very GoodEven though I've only just finished watching Gundam 00 recently, I've heard some of the themes before as they were on the Oricon charts (Yes, I follow the Oricon charts.) Gundam 00 has very nice themes and one of the more memorable themes must be "TOMORROW" by Tsunematsu Ayumi. It is one the ending themes in S2. I personally like the version sang with the kids.Enjoyment: (8/10) – Good Love the characters! Enjoy the battles! However, I like the pacing of S1 better.Overall: (9/10) – Very Good Good looking pilots, cool Mobile Suits, interesting battles, and a decent story. Gundam 00 is definitely a good watch! It also makes me more interested in other Gundam and mecha series.
