By ONENEO VINE VOICE on April 1, 2009
Let's face it; on the whole, Mobile-Fighter G Gundam is typically considered by fans to be the black sheep of the Gundam franchise. I knew this going into the 49-episode DVD collection, which is spaced out across two 6-disc sets from Bandai under the budget-friendly Anime Legends collections.

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.

A Kid's Review on February 13, 2007
I've been an anime fan since I was 8, and I can thank this series for that. When I got this dvd I was impressed, the G-files interviews were informative and the discs include both dub and sub. The only downside is there's two collections to get and not just one.

When we say there is a Gundam for everyone this was the one for me it combined the Gundam aspect with pro wrestling when I stilled enjoyed wrestling, but also it had some mma styling's as well. There haven't been many Gundams I've gotten into since except for IBO, definitely worth buying.

You know, it's just amazing. Even 30 years after the classic Mobile Suit Gundam aired and created one of the most successful and influential anime franchises of all time, and after its numerous incarnations, G Gundam is still the most "different" and "original" of them all. And all it really did was combine the Gundam brand with the "Super Robot" genre, which was the genre that dominated the mecha anime world before MSG. G Gundam retakes the old Super Robot roots and does a fantastic job at it, really. It's funny because it's the only series which very unequivocally and unapologetically states that Gundams are the center of the universe. The gundams are hilarious, ridiculous and maybe somewhat racist, the characters are fun and very memorable, the plot is surprisingly original, for a mecha show, and it just has a lot of heart and intensity behind it. It's just really good, it's a classic. You'll have a blast watching it after you get used to how cooky it is. My only criticism is that the animation is not really that good, and is very inconsistent at times.

I was 9-10 years old when I first saw this series on Toonami in 2002 and I have been in love with it ever since then. I LOVE G Gundam. This is my 1st Gundam series. So many wonderful childhood memories of watching the episodes after school and playing with my G Gundam action figures. It has a wonderful storyline and very developed characters. The series has action, suspense, mystery, romance, and comedy. I am a very satisfied customer. Buying this DVD box set is a dream come true for me.

This take on the gundam series breaks from the norm, but in a very intresting way as watching them fight is very entertaining as apposed to the normal war scenarios, very good battles and a deep storyline, if your a Gundam Fan get this series.

I remember like if it was yesterday when i started watching Anime on Toonami. I didnt really have a favorite show since being a kid any cartoon would keep me entertained. So after spending some time watching, G Gundam appeard before my eyes. It was weird since most Cartoons involve humor, wacky characters, and obvious plots. The Gundam series was way different, maybe thats why i loved it. The awesome music, mech battles, great story, is what made me a Gundam fan till this day.

So. Mobile Suit G Gundam. If you're expecting Gundam Wing, Seed, or anything from the U.C. timeline this is not for you. There is an underlying sense of war but it's shoved to the side for more Gundam fighting action and the story of a man trying to find his brother.

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.
