Crunchyroll Adds "Mobile Suit Gundam 00" to Anime Catalog

Series will be available today starting at 6:00pm Pacific Time

Crunchyroll has some more Gundam anime returning to its catalog today with the addition of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. The series goes live for all Crunchyroll members at 6:00pm Pacific Time, and it will be available in territories worldwide except for Asia. 

 

This 2007 entry in the Gundam franchise features direction by Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Shaman King), with Yousuke Kuroda (Trigun, My Hero Academia) on series composition for the Sunrise production. 

 

 

Synopsis:  

The year is 2307 A.D. Although fossil fuels have been depleted, humanity has obtained a new source of energy to replace them, in the form of a large-scale solar power generation system based on three huge orbital elevators. However, the benefits of this system are available only to a handful of major powers and their allies.

 

The three orbital elevators belong to three superpower blocs. These are the Union, led by the United States of America; the Human Reform League, led by China, Russia, and India; and the AEU, led by Europe. These superpower blocs continue to play a grand zero-sum game for the sake of their own prestige and prosperity. Thus, even in the 24th Century, humanity has yet to come together as one.

 

In this world of never-ending conflict, a private armed organization appears, dedicated to the elimination of war through armed force. Its name is Celestial Being, and it is in possession of "Gundam" mobile suits. With these Gundams, it begins armed intervention into all acts of war.
