Be afraid of the next Gundam series... The art is pretty... interesting. Gundam AGE looks like Pokemon in space. So while you can, pick up a copy of Gundam 00 and enjoy the wonderful, more grown up look to this series.

I will leave this brief review spoiler free. The story picks up a little after the events in the first half of the series (Mobile Suit Gundam 00: The Complete First Season). I actually bought the second season when it briefly dropped to $29.99 (from Amazon w/Prime shipping). I got lucky.

The story line takes a different path in this half, but we see many of the same characters as in the first half. Again, no spoilers, but if you have finished the first half (which you should have before watching this half), then you know some people were lost. There are a few new characters introduced, and others take a more central role in the story. I think that Saji's character becomes one of the more interesting characters in a Gundam series yet.

The animation is top caliber. The series was set up for HD, and was the first Gundam series to be animated with HD viewing in mind. Sadly, this release is currently only available on DVD, but even in standard definition, the animation is crisp and clean. The lines are so precisely drawn and the computer editing and animation is flawless.

The audio is quite phenomenal as well. Sound effects are realistic and the mixing is such that they don't suddenly 'boom' and disturb neighbors. The Japanese audio is fantastic. Sunrise takes great pride in casting voice talent, and the voice actors are matched perfectly to their roles. The English dubbing is along the lines of previous Gundam series, just decent.

While with the Gundam series the basic storyline is pretty much the same all in all I and like most people will still find the series entertaining and exciting regardless. The animation and soundtrack fit nicely together and the Japanese voice cast did a great job and while the English voice cast were 90% great there was that 10% we could have done without. Also just a heads up on the video format, I really don't know why Amazon has the video as standard but in actuality the format is widescreen(1.78:1). Also while the case for the set is somewhat cheap for $30.00 dollars for the entire second season I'm more then willing to overlook this, don't really expect much on the extras as all you're going to get are the usual trailers and the like. So for fans of the series or for fan of the Gundam series in general finally here's a series worth adding to your mecha anime collection.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is simply the greatest series in the history of Gundam Shows. That may be a strong claim but it is easily supported. From the art style, to the gorgeous mobile suits, to the intense battles, to the engrossing plot, all the way to the dynamic and deep characters, this show has it all.

I will start with my bias. While I respect the Universal Century for being the first of it's kind, I also feel as though it isn't worth any of the deification it continues to receive. Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam, Zeta Zeta Gundam, and Char's Counterattack in particular have been given an unfair bias in the slew of Gundam games that has been hitting the market in the past ten years with all of their pilots and missions making it into the game while later series' are given token representation. That isn't fair as shows like Wing and Seed are better composed stores and shows like X, Turn A, and others are more intriguing to the American audiences that never got them. All this to say that I am definitely prejudice towards the newer series and have found 00 to be the cream of the crop.

While Season 1 of Gundam 00 was enough to consider it a epic tale in its own right, the second season takes it straight through the stratosphere from Episode 1 and scarcely looks back. I could finesse every single detail of why Season 2 works, but what you need to hear is this: The show is astounding and if you haven't yet seen it... it is worth the money to invest. The first episode in particular (of Season 2) I was struck by. It seamlessly picks up where the first season left off and really sucks you right back into the world. It is a masterclass show and worth the consideration for certain.

I have never been a big Anime fan. Don't hate it and don't love it. It's okay. For the most part. This is one of the better ones. However, my son (12) loves Anime and Gundam is by far is favorite. He eats up each series and watches them over and over. My son said to give this a 5, so I did.

I love to have all the episodes for a show in a disc set such as this. This DVD collection includes extras such as credit-less openings, endings, trailers, commentary, and more. The overall quality is great!

It's rare for a Gundam series to have a second season, but Gundam00 does so and pulls it off with even more intensive action and more cool Gundams than even the first season had, new characters and more enemies add to the depth of the show, it is definitely worth getting especially if you've seen the first season.
