Can we talk about this series?

Notwithstanding the movie, I felt it had an interesting premise and was interesting to watch the characters slowly change over the course of the story.

The music was fantastic and made for 10/10 death scenes.

Anyone else unironically really enjoyed this?
>>
>>153034988
Yeah it's one of the best Gundams. Whilst S1 might have been the best, S2 was also enjoyable.

I recently read Asimov's Foundation Trilogy and it was really similar to Gundam 00 (just minus the mechs) so if you need a book I think it's worth checking out.

I enjoy the series, interesting premise, nice action. ss2 is kinda dumb, but still quite entertaining. The movie is complete trash though.

The girls are smoking hot. The only thing I had against this show is how uninteresting the male protagonists are. We basically have an autist as an MC.
>>
>>153034988
Probably the Gundam series I enjoyed the most as opposed to being the greatest Gundam anime. Season 1 was fantastic, and while season 2 felt a bit drawn out by the end, it was still very good.

The Gundam design was god-tier too - Exia (and some of his variants) is possibly the sexiest unit in the entire Gundam franchise.
>>
>>153034988
S1 is 7/10.
S2 is 5/10.

Movie is just shit.

2nd season had a lot of wasted potential but was still decent.
1st was great, creative and innovative with its world, memorable death scenes.
Movie was just action.

Not really especially with how stupid it eventually becomes.

Season 1 was fairly solid overall, but the fact that the Meisters are so overpowered until the end of the season where you wonder why the knock offs are just as good as the real deal GN cores they've been using. Season 2 continues with shitty villains (outside of Ali) taking over and the whole thing is a constant tech race that feels almost like R2's whole bullshit with newer gen Knightmares being able to take out armies of the previous gen ones. Guess what anime Sunrise did in the exact same release pattern right before 00 aired?

As far as Gundam goes I've seen everything aside from Seed/Destiny, Age, and Wing and as far as AU Gundams go I prefer Turn A, X, and G for sure.

Setsuna is one of my favourite anime characters of all time. His personality and character development are amazing.

I think the movie is pretty underrated in terms of the ideas and story it had going on. Execution was pretty mediocre though.
>>
>>153039065
>Execution was pretty mediocre though.
Understatement of the century.

The concept for the movie had been built up since season 1, so it didn't have the "tacked-on" feeling that many anime movies can have. But it was just so purely executed, and the aliens being rather boring in their design didn't help either.

Sunrise actually put effort into their work. Same with Code Geass which actually came out around the same time as well. 2007-8 Was a great year for mecha anime

Nowadays Sunrise is barely trying anymore. I can only hope that Code Geass S3 is at least as good as S2.

Also, why do people not like 00 S2? I thought it was alright aside from a few story complaints. Though I agree the movie was kinda trash

It only needed to be about half as long as it actually was. By the end it felt like they were stringing it along just to make up the episode count. Things often didn't feel as consequential or as important as they had been in season 1.
>>
>>153039904
the backlash Destiny received over reusing scenes also motivated Sunrise. I think there was only one or two scenes where they reused some animation. I can't remember which exactly which is a positive thing.

Eh, I think some of the plot points were wasted in a sense but it's alright for a second season.

>Things often didn't feel as consequential or as important as they had been in season 1.

I feel inclined to disagree. While there wasn't as much tension as the first season, there still were some pretty good and hype moments, although it helps that the technology gap wasn't as wide as much of the first season till almost the end.

It's definitely not bad at all, just noticeably weaker than the first season.

I seem to be in the minority in thinking that it looks better than Exia.

Same anon here, I think the biggest problem was the characterization in S2. Like Graham turning into a blood knight Char Clone and not fighting for his men like in S1, now I'll give that to the movie since it went back to his original characterization. Although Bushido Bob did have some hype fights with Setsuna

Another thing I'll give the movie is how beautiful the gundams and mechas were. It's criminal how they were only used for the one movie. At least we get to see more of them in SRW

Also, the 00 looks great but I prefer the sleekness of the Exia
>>
>>153040253
Not-Nena was to redeem her character design and voice by giving them to a non-psycho.

What I rarely see praised in 00 is how good its very first episode is. In 24 or so minutes so many characters and story elements are set in motion.
>>
00 has aged considerably well. I think it also helps that Sunrise hasn't put out an decent actual Gundam series since then.
AGE, while I thought it the premise was alright just didn't have enough episodes to make it fleshed out. Part 2 was the best with Asumu which got ruined in part 3.
I honestly liked season 1 of Build Fighters since it reminded me of Medabots but Gunpla models. The animation for the fights were especially nice as well, but I don't consider that an actual Gundam series since it's just for shits and giggles.
G-Reco was complete wasted potential. Which I hate bringing up since theres a shit ton of Recofags who will ride this show's dick and ignore all of its flaws. I like some of the kits though like the G-Lucifer and the Montero.
IBO is stupid as fuck, and Okada should never be associated with any Gundam series ever. Season 2 is a lot better than Season 1 though and I hope it ends well.

I'm of the exact same opinion. He served no purpose in the series beyond a certain point, but the writers didn't seem to want to let him go.

I thought the aliens were cool. No conveniently humanoid aliens, and the basis of the conflict was a communication issue between two entirely different biomes, like Ender's Game.

The only one I put above it is the original 1978 tv series.
