So consistent was the negative feedback of the series that I purposely began my Gundam viewing obsession with the original, followed by Zeta, Wing, Seed, 0080, and 0083 all before tearing into G. With apprehension and low expectations, I began the 49-episode journey of Domon Kasshu and company and am pleased to report that I was pleasantly surprised. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the highs and lows of the show itself, let us take a moment to discuss G Gundam's roots and developments.
As many know, the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise is one of the longest-standing and most successful licenses to come out of Japan, a nation known for an obsession with all-things Giant Robot. That said, back in 1994 the Gundam franchise was already celebrating its fifteenth year of existence and commemorated the occasion with three individual and unrelated programs (G was the first of the three, followed by Wing then the 08th MS Team).
Airing in Japan in 1994 (and running through 1995), G Gundam maintains the dark, gritty feel of shows from the era like Gundam Wing. However, unlike Wing, G Gundam takes place in the Future Century (FC) where the earth-nations-inspired space colonies battle it out to earn control over the planet for a four-year term. Democracy be darned, this responsibility is determined through a Roman Gladiator style tournament whereby each colony sends a Gundam (& pilot) to duke it out on the planet's surface, often at the expense of the population/ landmarks.Read more ›
It's a more laid back version of gundam. Imagine if the Dragonball world tournament had a child with Gundam, this is the result. So if you want emotional ties, political plot twist, and war this it's not for you. Pick up 0083 stardust memory, 8th ms team or one of the above mentioned. But if you want a fun story, gundam fights, and some interesting mech designs, G Gundam might float your boat.
Overall, it's fun to watch, easy to get into, and you don't have to keep up with a complicated plot.
Would recommend for anyone's Gundam collection.
