Gundam 00 aired

Recommended Posts

Gundam 00 was aired in Japan on 6 October 2007.

 

Here's a look at the OP and ED for the show. The opening song is by L'arc~en~ciel. I'm not sure about the ending song.

Aha, it just hit me.

 

The main characters voice actor; Sutsuna I think it was his name and the pilot of Exia is Yagami Light of death note

 

I kept thinking ' Damn it, so familiar. ' and then it suddenly hit me.

It looks nice, btw doesn't Exia look like the Strike but with some new equipment?

 

actually now that I think about it... all their gundams are very similar to the ones in seed and/or destiny Like Gundam Dynames, looks seems like Gundam Buster from seed. Also Gundam Kyrios looks like a Mobius Zero sorta

 

what do you guys think? Although most gundams do look alike somehow xd

I'm liking it so far.  Some interesting ideas, Some of the characters are a little weird looking but that isnt really a problem. 

 

All the mecha look familiar not just the gundams.  The ones in the intro look exactly like mecha used by Amalgam in Full metal panic TSR, minus the odd crotch cannon.  The new buster rifle like weapon is kinda cool looking.

I agree with carpeno.  I'm just glad they didn't overemphasize the questionable designs and put its focus on the situation at hand, at least for now.

 

(Seriously though, what's with quiet guys with glasses and motherf**kin huge suits/guns? )

There's something else thats also funny... Theres a Haro in the cockpits... and did you notice how big the Haro is? like its so much bigger than the ones in seed/destiny, or atleast thats how i see it.

I thought there was only one Haro so far...

 

(If there was one in every cockpit...oh dear lord...

 

*Haro jabbers* 'Oi, shut up!  I'm trying to be God here! *Haro continues to jabber*)

 

EDIT: And from the premise of the series, I was suddenly reminded of a quote from Batman Begins (courtesy of IMDB:

 

Jim Gordon: And what about escalation?

Bruce Wayne/Batman: Escalation?

Jim Gordon: We get semi-automatic weapons, they get automatics. We get Kevlar body armor, they get armor-piercing rounds. And *you're* wearing a mask and jumping off rooftops.

Just watched the episode and hell, I have to say I dont like it now. Nothing to do with my SEED addiction, nor the oversized Haro that makes no sense. I liked the opening up until that Gundam came along. It's 'wings' reminded me of Evangelion and Gundam Wing at the same time

 

Final thing's that- What's with the obesed unit?!

They're breaking the norm here lol. I'll admit however, after I watched the episode, I wanted more although I can't get over how weird the Enact's face looks..(or does it have a face?)

Ok, sure, you might think 00 is shit, but hey, I'm giving it a chance (And i'm one of the UC gundam fans!). I'm at odds with the character design thou. Its all pretty boys and even prettier girls *snicker* (they sure didn't skimp of the character hairstyles. Nearly everyone has curls...I'm scared now...)

Although I might point out these things, I'm still interested in how this story will turn out. The only thing I guess i've taken a shine to is the Dynames ...

The guy with glasses wears pink shirts and a purple colored suit

 

It's funny cause for someone so feminine he has Virtue and that suit is friggin fat and overpowered.

 

Personally Dynames is gonna die a sad death, suit seems too...far range. They better make it something good or else it's gonna die fast.

 

Kyrios just reminded me of Wing Zero. or Epyon...whichever..more like Zero though.

 

Exias...Evangelion all the way They just need to put Shinji or Asuka in there instead.

*Aftermath Thoughts on Gundam 00, episode 1*:

 

Well, it wasn't really that explosive of an episode, for those of you who remembered Gundam Seed and Seed Destiny. The pilot episode was a little like that of Gundam Wing, except the fact that they jumped straight into the story about their organisation instead of dallying around.

 

Setsuna's past at the start was interesting enough to speculate what kind of a childhood he had, and how he had got to Kurdistan (or something) as a child soldier. The Gundam that saved his ass then looked a little like the one in the first UC series.

 

Interestingly, I like the designs. Unorthodox they may be as compared to recent designs, the team of Meisters are well-balanced in terms of combat ability. You have a melee specialist (Exia), a long-ranged sharpshooter (Dynames), a speedy flyer (Kyrios) and the One with THE BIG GUNS (Virtue).

 

From what I've heard, apparently some of the pilots' names were an inside joke from the producers, as you should have guessed by now (Lockon Stratos and Alleluyah Haptism).

 

Another thing that interests me is the usual love interest(s) for our protagonists. There's the one 'unidentified' female shown with Setsuna at the start. I'm putting my money on Marina Ismail, but we'll see how it goes.

 

Not too bad for a start, considering the amount of action, the declaration of Celestial Being's existence and purpose as well as the introduction of the mechas and (slight) introduction of the characters. For now, it looks really promising.

"Gundam Meisters" is a little... overdoing it. Now it sounds like a mature version of Power Rangers. >_>

 

Well, Kyrios looks like the Wildraubiter from SRW:OG if anyone's played it. The Virtue has features like the GP02A, except it doesn't have a big shield and the huge verniers/coolants. Otherwise, its so-so for now.

Unortodox the word. Unortodox enemy MSs, unortodox timeline, unortodox character's design, unortodox first episode. At this time, for such ortodox fan as me, it's too strange. Best idea - "let's wait and hope". 'cause now I don't like it.

Side note - girl in blue, that appeared in op - it's only me, or she resembles Relena Dorian? They have very similar eyes....

Oh yeah, one thing....

 

The Enact's deflecting bar for a shield is hot.

Reminded me of Gundam F91, that I watched recently (in F91 they used beam swords in same way))

hhmm...From what I heard the meisters names are all code names. They haven't given out the'r real names, I think.

 

We can only hope. :/


And from the convo in ep.3, I have a little hunch about a few things but it's too early to mention 'em.  Oh, right, the Haro in the Dynames also serves as an Gundam navigation AI...a Haro that's actually USEFUL...oh, dear god.
