Now that Mobile Suits Gundam 00 is over, lets share our thoughts about the series.

Before I give my ratings on Mobile Suit Gundam 00, there's quite a fair amount of things I like to say that I didn't enjoy about 00 S2.


I was never into the "wonders of NEWYTPES" that was probably the reason why I didn't like Zeta and ZZ as much as MSG (simply because Camille abused his Newtype powers and Judai abused it even more). Which makes me hate the fact that magical GN-Particles reminds me of NEWTYPE HAX.

MR.BUSHIDO!!!! God I hate this mofo... What was the point of bringing back a AWESOME Char-clone when instead of giving the guy more character development and more importance to the series, his character became less developed and less important (to the point its laughable).

Saji - At the beginning of 00 S2 he really reminded me of Katz (and I hated Katz the prick). His character could of been better if they didn't take forever to have him grow some balls. If they had speeded up his character development, his role would most likely be more important (and potentially be great as well).

Anew - She didn't have enough screen time or character development for me to appreciate her as a character, even her death didn't flinch me. That blond ugly guy working for A-Laws dying made more of an impact to me than Anew's death. It really only seemed that she was there for the romance junkies and that to give Lyle some actual character development.

Marina - She was important in 00 S1, but was she still important in 00 S2?? Heck no! She doesn't have much screen time and neither did her ear bleeding song. I may be Macross fan, but there's no way in hell Gundam is going to turn into Macross where female Pop Idols can save the universe simply by singing a song.

The quality of the battles - Sure 00 S2 had more "action" compare to 00 S1, but I find the majority of the fights to be a "meh" level. So far the only fights that made me scream like a fangirl are whenever Teria went GAR mode. Another thing I hate about 00 S2 is that they usually seem to just abuse the Trans-Am to win the battle. Besides whenever Teria goes into GAR mode, the battles don't seem as detail or as creative as S1 (eg, the lame DBZ rip off battle of MR.BUSHIDO Vs Setsuna that was so disappointing it ends before the opening)

Ribbons/Innovators = For a character the main character is ultimately suppose to versus in the end... Well he freaking sucks period. Throughout the season Ribbons hasn't really done anything at mind blowing level (expect those episodes of brainwashing Anew and controlling purple Haro). Most of his screen time is dedicated to sitting on something and preach the usual stuff of "why he's GOD" and "how he's going to lead mankind". Other than Regene and Teria, the rest of the Innovators doesn't have much role other than being a distraction. They were defiantly more important in the beginning, but as the story progress in S2 they seemed less and less important to the story.

Ali Al Sarches - Now this guy was one of the few older looking badass!! Probably because he reminded me of Yazan. Its too bad his character gets nerfed like Graham (aka MR.BUSHIDO). His role in S2 was basically like Anew... By that I mean just appearing for the sake of giving other characters their character development. A magnificent bastard like him should have a death similar to Rau (SEED).

Allelujah/Hallelujah - Allelujah is pathetic character in season 2. Not only does he whine, he's always the person to get shot, blown up, cut up, or simply pwn first before everyone else in the CB. Other than the one arc about him being reunited with Marie, his characters basically gets killed from then on. Hallelujah use to be my favourite Meister (because he was GAR), if only he had LONGER screen time, rather than just popping up and disappearing right after.

Lockon (Lyle) - He's like the second least important Meister. For 2/3rd of the show his job/screen time was basically sitting at the back protecting the ship and that was really it. It was only till near the end of the season was when the show started thrusting and cramming character development and screen time into him to make him seem like a more important character in 00 S2. The pacing of his character could of been done a WHOLE lot better.

Nena/Wang/that Wang girl's brother - Like Marina, why are they even here??

My most obvious complaint will be GOD Raiser, I don't even need to explain this. If only they didn't make it broken and/or fix the unstableness a different way, I probably enjoyed the series more.

They are so many episodes and yet almost everybody lacks enough screen time for the majority of the show. However no matter how bad 00 S2 is, its STILL isn't as horrible as the mights of DESTINY because reusing FOOTAGE from SEED in the final battle is a big NO-NO for me.

00 S1 rating: 8/10
00 S2 rating: 6.5/10
Overall rating: 7/10

I didn't enjoy second season either. I really hated how the plot was going in the middle, the whole thing about innovators, Setsuna changing into an innovator, and the unbeatable GN particles. The plot was very slow at some parts and they increased the pace rapidly at the end. Marina was useless, the plot changed from its "realistic" theme which I really liked in season 1 because hey they were discussing the main problems in the world now to its "childish" and "let's-save-the-earth-let's protect-our dreams!" theme which I didn't exactly enjoy.

Is it only me or the whole power of the GN particles to read people's mind was absolutely ridiculous, that was the last thing I ever expected they would use to make Saji meet Louise. I gapped when that happened. And the power to heal people, are you kidding me? I think it was andy who posted something about how GN particles is the solution to everything including relationship problems lol that made me laugh cuz it's so true.

And wait they brought back the red headed guy whose name I forgot who married the glasses woman whose name I also forgot lol you know the last ridiculous ten minutes where they were in the their wedding clothes. JODAN JANAI YO!

Gundam 00 second season fails big time.

The post about GN-Particles being the solution to everything is indeed me .

GN particles is the SOLUTION to many problems presented in 00 S2. Need to come back from the dead? Oh just sprinkle some GN Particles on them. Having relationship trouble? GN Particles. Getting PWNED in battle? Have some GN Particles. Got some GN AIDS? GN Particles can heal it. Can't subconsciously transfer to a super computer? GN Particles will do the trick. Need some pointless fanservice scenes? GN Particles is the way to go!

At this point I'm just glad it's over and we can all move on. It was getting tedious, and I agree with you guys. They could have worked on pacing. The entire story was god-awefull slow (or maybe GN-awefull slow) for the first 15-20 episodes and suddenly picked up. I was actually wondering if they'd be able to finish it in the usual 24-26 eps. And they basically added ep 25 for just one massive duel and epilogue. Still, the last episode had some nuggets in it. I liked Lockon's battle with Revive. I also kinda liked Allelujah's short and violent battle. I utterly did not like Exia against the O Gundam. Seriously, did anybody really think the O Gundam in the hands of a megalomaniac with a god complex could stand up to the Exia? A waste of screentime if you ask me. They were better off just ending the battle with the Cannon and O-Riser.

Also, the GN-haxx was worse than the newtype haxx. Or even the psychoframe overload haxx that Amuro and Char used at the end of CCA. And definitely worse than the Ultimate Gay Aimbot haxx of Jesus Yamato.

It seems people have big time to criticise or quite harsh opinions on both S1 and S2 very much. For me, nobody is perfect on creating the series or season. We cant really force the director to add more screentime on the character that we admired or like. Or making the story more interesting by improving the character attitude or behavior, well maybe adding more battles. As if the director is going to listen to us. We cant always depend on good anime shows with good ending and good plots. We are perfectly rich in criticism, but we are not the one who sit in the chair directing it. Thats the problem among the critics. We have much to talk, but are we really doing it? Action speaks louder than words. Now i'm criticising the criticism lol.

Well im not talking directly to u, i'm talking bout every single animefans out there lol......

Ok lets move on to the topic.....

yeah overall, season 2 was awesome.......

INNOS is down for good!

MOVIEE I CANT WAIT!! "The Childhood of Humankind Ends"

lol fairy dust. (If I could give the same treatment to Ide, Newtype hax, Spiral Power and Getter Rays, I would.)

Also: Mr. Bushido and Prince Ali not being plot-relevant (enough)? I AM DISAPPOINT

And those Innovators could almost make you question your gender, geez.

Overall season two was pretty good. But the ending was a little bit disappointing because i was expecting the action to be a little more intense. And they didn't show if the meisters succeeded in eradicating war. But the rest of the plot was good.

possibly, 00 got some elementz from SEED like these.
overpowered Gundam(Strike Freedom->00 Raiser zomg, overpowered).
Eyes turning wierd.
d00d surving death encounterz like Jesus Yamato
OK to show them once but doing it again and again is not good.
