Editorial Reviews

(THIS CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS!!!) Contrary to what other reviews have said, this show is well worth watching. It has some of the best plot, characters, and Gundams you could ever see in any Gundam show. Here is just a bit of background on the show, Characters, and popularity stats: Background: The series is set in 2308 AD. As a result of the depletion of fossil fuels, humanity had to search for a new source of power. The power was found in the form of massive arrays of solar power collectors orbiting the Earth, and supported by three orbital elevators, each one serving one of the three "power blocs" on the planet, namely UNION, controlling the region surrounding North America, Human Reform League, consisting of China, Russia and India, and AEU, which controls mainland Europe. With this nearly inexhaustible source of energy benefiting only the major powers and their allies, constant warfare erupts around the globe among minor countries for fuels and energy. Countries that once economically relied on the sale of fossil fuels have plunged into poverty. Some even believe that solar energy threatened the "promised land of God", resulting in the 20-year Solar Wars. This chaos led to the formation of a private military organization, called Celestial Being, dedicated to eradicating war and uniting humanity through the use of four humanoid machines called Gundams. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 follows four mobile suit pilots termed Gundam Meisters, sided with Celestial Being. The main protagonist is 16-year old Setsuna F Seiei, a quiet, taciturn young man who grew up in the war-torn Krugis Republic. He pilots the GN-001 Gundam Exia, a high mobility mobile suit effective in melee combat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Series March 24, 2009
By Jesse
I really enjoyed the first season of this and I am currently watching the second season which will end in about 1-2 weeks concluding this fantastic series. Anyways back the the the main topic. This series has arguably the best animation in a Gundam series ever and the first to be produced in wide screen HD format. The mech designs are all unique and colorful, The character developement is also well played and the story is quite solid. I could not compare this series to Gundam Wing even though they share similarities to each other. But each have their own twists and settings and characters. Overall if you are a mecha fan or Gundam fan I highly recommend this series. I'm positive you will not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Gundam Series June 8, 2009
I've finished watching this series and I must say that it's one of the better series. As a gundam fan that started with Gundam Wing I can say that I am very please with the story that gundam designs. What I'm especially pleased with is the very limited recycling of animation which we see a lot in Gundam SEED Destiny (which is still another one of my favorites). I only wished that some things were a little better explained and it kind of annoyed me that the gundams had numerous other features that you would see in the manga or the model kits, but you never see or hardly see used in the anime. An explain of this was that 00 Gundam actually had a 7 sword system much like Exia did. But towards the end of the series, Setsuna has only the GN sword 3 in use for the final battles. He never bothered to combine his GN swords 2 until his final battle with Mr. Bushido. There are a few others I'm sure most other gundam fans are aware of. Aside from that being a little annoying to find out, the story was just a bit predictable. I think it's great addition to the gundam line with many first times in the series. Which had me smiling and rewatching. A must for gundam fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly One Of The Best Gundams Ever!!! April 22, 2009
UPDATE:

After buying and finally getting this box set I come to find out that it only the first 9 episodes out of 25 for season one, and the reason for this box set cost more than the one that isn't SE is because this one comes with the first Manga for Gundam 00 and the first Manga for Gundam 00F. I have a feeling there will be 3 box sets for season one, since the next box set has two DVD's in it as well as this one did, but the 2nd box set's run time is only 200 mins in all where this one was 225 min. So I have a feeling the next box set will only have 8 episodes in it. Which leaves 8 episodes for the 3rd box set for season one. To tell you the truth, I was a bit shocked and disappointed to get only 9 episodes for the price I paid, but I also got the mangas, so it's not so bad, but I would have rather had the other official manga that is out for Gundam 00. for the art and the story line are a bit better it in. The manga they put in there for the SE is too comical for my liking. It makes everything into somewhat of a joke, where the show itself isn't comical. But having the Gundam 00F manga was a joy for me, since I haven't been able to find it state side what so ever, but it woudln't have killed me to wait to find it later on either. If you really don't want the mangas then I would say get the other box set since it's cheaper, or just wait all together and get the full box set when it comes out (which will be in about a year I'm thinking) This anime is still one of the best in my book, I just wish I would have known about the manga they put in here first, because as I said before, I really didn't like the style of that manga. I wish I would have saved my money and gone out to buy the other official manga for Gundam 00 since it's more of the true Gundam 00 style.

excellent animation and story telling. I'd say is more mature then most other gundam/mech shows are. and the special editions come with the manga which is also nice to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't get the comparisons May 6, 2009
Hands down, Gundam 00 is quite possibly the best Gundam to date (up there with Char's Counterattack and 08th team - and nowhere near that horrible Gundam Wing series). The action is over the top, the plot, while similar in some respects to other Gundam series, it varies in that it didn't fall off into that ridiculous, destroy the suit not the pilot sort of crap. It's a tad more visceral than the others. It was also novel in that they mirrored real-world events and shied away from space colonies. It's vibrant, exciting and very little in the way of plot droppage. If you like Gundam, then this one surely will not disappoint.

Who's holding out for Blu-ray?
I have no idea why they haven't, in japan the DVD's and Blu-ray all came out at once, heck... I have all the Japanese Blu-Ray DVD's (yay for living in Japan) and play them on my Japanese PS3. But this show is very very very poplular in japan, and I have a feeling it's going to be a big hit here,... Read More
