It looks like Studio Bones made this.

the gundam itself looks fine.

the other mecha are just kinda blugh though. granted, that's not too unusual, since most of the time the mooks get crap mechs, but I'd still rather have more intimidating mooks.

Both episodes aired today although I can't say it entirely lived up to the hype; if there was one.

It was pretty much setup episodes that established the conflict of the premise and the character cast. One particular character (Aida) stood out a bit but not exactly in the way I wanted to. The setting was solid though with technology and action was coordinated well. I'm hoping for some solid world building too, maybe.

Nope, all Gundam series were produced by Sunrise, Gundam Franchise belongs to Sunrise.

Probably because Eureka Seven's character designer is working on this and Eureka Seven was developed by Bones.

The OP seems kinda lame, awesome GARNiDELiA song aside. Seems like 90% stock footage from the show and 10% poses in front of colorful backgrounds.

The opening sequence was also a little confusing - I thought I had started the wrong episode. Pacing-wise it was also kinda weird. Tone also kinda took me off-guard but I should've expected weird goofiness from Tomino. The gags with the cheerleaders were hit-or-miss but I got a kick out of the bit where Bell bounces off the wall and down the stairs, as well as Noredo arguing with Aida about her slingshot.

Some of the mechanical designs were pretty cool. The G-SELF is awesome , the G-Arcane looked pretty cool in the ED, and the Grimoire was kickass. The Recten just looks like a big, piloted version of Canti from FLCL, and the Catsith was just a Jegan with a backpack strapped to it.

Characters seem nice so far. I like Bell, Aida, and Luin the most so far. Like I said before, cheerleaders were hit-or-miss. Cahill seemed pretty neat, the masked character looks like Harry Ord's cousin which is alright by me, and Raraiya seems like she could get annoying.



That said, G-Reco definitely seems up my alley and I'll stick around to the end, most likely.

Yeah it does look like Eureka 7. If it's the same character designer I hope he's the only one who has also worked on Eureka 7. I mean as great as it was, it's sequel was one of the worst written animes I have seen.

I was not impressed by the show at all, I was actually pretty excited about the show but now i am not so sure. The only character i have found to be interesting is Aida. The pacing has also felt incredibly awkward, i cant quite point out how, the story pacing just feels off.

The dialogue and the main character feels incredibly outdated and honestly not that great. I understand they are trying to appeal to people's nostalgia, with the graphics and the "old model" display in the second episode, but content-wise i am just not sure how much there is. They have not bothered to explain anything about what is going on. It feels like they are adding non coherent bits and pieces about the world they live in and the situation the world is in without actually saying anything.

I am going to give it up to episode 4 or 5, but if things dont change quickly, this will probably be my first drop of the season.

Yeah I'm kinda let down by the this. I'm not a fan of either Seed/Destiny or OO and haven't seen Unicorn but I was kinda looking forward to this new Gundam series. That was honestly some of the laziest dialogue and exposition I've ever seen and I honestly could have forgiven, hell not even notice it, it if the characters stood out.... but they didn't. I just finished watching it and I can barely remember the characters names and was only remotely interested in Aida.

This season is gunna be big for me, I'm picking up more than double what I usually pick up for a season so I'm probably gunna drop this. If this series happens to get a lot of positive reviews I'll come back to it but otherwise color me unimpressed.

I guess I'm with retrometroid and Stark700 on this one.

Not the greatest thing ever, yet. But I liked it just fine. Always room for more Gundam.

First I like most Sunrise animation ! One is the ensemble always look good! It has that pre CG lok to it but not too dated. Bright and vivid colors too!

I liked the spaceship Crown and those guide wires That was pretty cool with all the science stuff going on!

I think the story leaves lots of room to get intersting!

I am so comfortable with Sunrise lots of space / sci-fi experience. They did Plantes / Girl Who leapt Through Space / Mai-Hime just a couple of mt faves!

My favorite character so far is Monday but every where I go no one else even mentions her. She's a very mysterious character I think will play a big part in the series.
