GSD was screwed up so badly :/ and i don't know how the heck the role of protagonist changed from Shinn to Kira.Another Char-type character would be awesome and maybe he would get a mecha/Gundam that will pawn the Meisters

Ok so i have seen plenty of gundam series. This series is practically like Gundam wing. Several pilots launch to earth and create chaos. Except this time they made all of the pilots on one team. For the actual series...its coming along quite smoothly. I have great hopes of it...but im going to be pissed once it stops in march for like 6 months

The recapping of GSD, since way too many viewers hated that, was now done in every episode. The recapping happens during the start of the episode. Something which Code Geass did...

I feel that 00 will probably have the same approach, till the last of the first 25 episodes atleast, as what Code Geass did. They started it with the animation and character design, and then the supposed showing of the first 25 episodes, then a delay, then a continuation of the next 25 episodes, narration and recap done in the beginning of the episode, and finally a somewhat wider view of the characters and the story itself (The anime doesn't just revolve with Setsuna entirely.).

============================================

In comparison with other Gundam series, it is very obvious to note that the mecha designs are way to different from that we have seen in all previous gundam anime/manga/etc.

00 still contains factors which are similar to other series, like human enhancements. UC had Cyber-Newtypes, while CE had Extendeds. Another is GN particles, something which is similar to UC's Minovsky Particles and CE's Mirage Colloid.

The masked man is new, but not completely... X had no masked man too... I just don't know if they'll go with it till the end. Perhaps a masked man might appear out of nowhere, somewhere before or after episode 25, but that's just a guess...

One thing I noticed... the ones that didn't have any masked men... didn't get overrated... UC's Char and AC's Zechs are overrated characters, I just don't know about Rau and Neo, but the show itself is overrated. But that is just an opinion...

==================================================

On the side note, a friend told me the Code Geass will resume right after the first half of 00. I'm guessing they'll continue the second half of 00 once the second half of Code Geass ends. I think he got that info from Newtype Magazine...

G-X dont have masked chara but masked chara is not something new, they have it since the 1st gundam(char is the chara)
anyway, it's good that CG will take over G00 for a while, coz at least it will prevent me from getting bored of continuous G series. besides, it's gonna be summer. and CG is perfect for it.

Gundam 00 is a lot like Wing, but there are many things that set it apart. Like, this new gundam series involves more politics that are happening in our times. I bet the producers open up the newspaper to see what can they incorporate to the plot!! the pilots are very different from Wing, Setsuna and Heero are a bit of the same thing, except Setsuna would be no match against Heero, Lockon is the best character so far, kind of like Duo, relaxed and focused at the same time. Tieria would be the Wufei in this anime, except the skills, and Allelujah is Quatra, and Trowa at the same time, because of the hair. Allelujah is the most sentimental of all. so the characters are a bit alike. no Relena, no dudes in mask, so it is easy to compare it to another gundam series, but it has a lot of new things to offer!

Global Warming won't really fit inside a Gundam series...

Pilots and governements wouldn't be shouting things about saving the planet against global warming... Global terrorism, maybe, but not Global warming...

^ That's becoz u take glabal warming lightly. i could destroy the whole world compare to terrorisme. terrorisme is avoidable, but global warming won't go anyless. ppl can't stop it ppl can just make it slower

I won't criticize the story just yet, since the series is still airing...

Characters are a pretty bland bunch at first, except for Graham Acre and Lockon Stratos, whom I both found to be very interesting at the start. Then, the rest of the Meisters and Sergei Smirnov(my fav non-Gundam-pilot right now) started showing off some color and personality, so this series looks like it's got quite a bit of character development in it, a good sign

The mecha designs though, are unique compared to other Gundam series. There might be subtle similarities though, such as the GN-005 Gundam Virtue and the RX-78GP02A Gundam "Physalis", the GN-003 Gundam Kyrios and the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam....

The GN-001 Gundam Exia is such a melee monster, and the GN-002 Gundam Dynames can hit orbital targets! Haven't seen a Gundam hit something as high as that before, and it has such a sweet gun.....

The mass production units though, well, you kinda need to watch the series through to actually like them, I had a hard time liking the US Air Force's SVMS-01 Union Flag, that is, until I saw Graham Acre(right now my 2nd fav non-Gundam-pilot character) use it...

As for the MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type, many people may say that it's a Zaku-look-alike/ripoff, but it has its merits, I kinda like that bulky-tank-armor look for it...

Overall, I think this series is headed in the right direction...
