Synopsis
In A.G. 101 (the 101st year of the Advanced Generation calendar) a mysterious entity known only as "UE", or "unknown enemy", attacks and destroys the space colony Angel. This brutal attack becomes infamous as the "The Day the Angel Fell", and marks the beginning of humanity's war for survival. The series begins seven years later when the UE attack the space colony Ovan, where Flit Asuno lives with his mother. Flit's mother is killed by the UE, and in her belongings (in an object called a "AGE Device") he discovers the blueprints for a powerful weapon from the past--the ancient messiah named "Gundam."

From these blueprints, Flit spends the next several years studying engineering at an Earth Federation base on the Nora space colony and designing the Gundam AGE-1. Seven years later, in A.G. 115, Flit completes the Gundam AGE-1 Normal, just as the UE attack Nora. Flit and his lineage's battle piloting the AGE-1 to protect mankind is about to begin.

The first two episodes have already aired and so far I'd have to say this feels very different from the average gundam series. It seems to be getting off to a somewhat slow start like ZZ and Victory Gundam. The enemy faction in this series doesn't have a point of view and isn't relatable to so far although this may change as the series goes along. I have to say I really dislike the designs and art direction of this series as well. So far it just seems like this series hasn't taken off yet which sometimes it can take a while for a Gundam series to get good but as of right now I'd rank it as the worst Gundam series.

I'm going copy and paste my post about my impression so far for this series from another site.


My first impression for the series is a 5/10. I honestly don't understand how other people are ZOMG excited from watching it; all I see is the regular Gundam formula. I'll need to watch more episodes (at least 20 or so episodes) before I know I like this AU or not (because it took me around 20 episodes for me to start liking MSG Turn A)

SPOILERS
My friend was amazed by how the UE did an ambush attack at the hatch.
END SPOILERS

On the other hand I wasn't really impressed since tactics like these should be the general norm when it comes to war. I should realize by now that this is Gundam where military/guerrilla tactics are almost non-existent and adults with their so-called years of experience are incompetent morons for the most part.

This part is slightly off-topic, but I find it hilarious when people considered 00 grunts to be the best grunts considering no one EVER tires to hit those giant shaped cones (GN Drives), even after that they received the GN technology. Then again I guess they are among the better grunts when there aren't much to compare them with...


It seem to me I have come to realize that I love Gundam for all the wrong reasons

It's too early to rate it, because for every course of action, there's a matching explanation.

Anyways, I'll give it some time (I didn't like 00 when it first started, since they were all OP and stuff, but by season 2 I kinda liked it and it grew up on me)

I've seen the first two episodes and it's nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. I think it's worth watching despite the Digimon like character designs.

Eva? Never heard of it. Gurren Lagann was decent, but I still didn't really like it. I prefer my shows less...Childish, if you understand what I mean. Blood, death, mutilation, rape, etc, etc...I tend to go for shows in that category. Beserk was great!

Yeah I am not crazy about the character design either and once again the main character leading this is very young.

The very first anime I saw was a mecha , although I am not as crazy about it now I stilI like scifi stuff mixed in with some drama.

Well I might check it out later.

It is a bit difficult to believe that someone interested in anime wouldn't recognize "Eva" as Evangelion.

If you say you've never heard of it, then I'll have good reason to suspect you're pulling my leg.

Oh, Evangelion. Heard of it, never watched it. Isn't it some old show about robots and stuff? Like, one of the first mechas.

I tend to only watch shows that involve more "Mature" themes than big chunks of metal whacking each other.

Evangelion was far from one of the first mechas (keep in mind even Mobile Suit Gundam predated it by about 16 years).
Technically, evas aren't robots, but that is a bit of a spoiler for the series. Neither are the "angels" they fight against.

It also isn't old anymore, since there have been the series of "Rebuild" movies the past few years (which starting with the second one, are not just a redo of the same old story), and that series has yet to finish.

I think Gundam Age is awesome!...I have a feeling its gonna be great!....most people are knocking cause of the art direction this ones in.I have no problem with it,I mean it still follows the gundam political sense and reminds me of the very first mobile suit gundam series.There hasn't really been a gundam series I've disliked yet.Gundam 00 is the best though
