Also I predict they'll all die bloody and horrifying deaths.


Except the main character. Someone has to blame himself for their deaths after all.

You know what, I watched the first 2 episodes because there wasn't much else to watch (until today, holy moly) and I actually quite liked the first two episodes!!! I'm not sure what they have to do with Gundam but maybe that's a good thing. Some fun characters, totally wacko plot, physics makes no sense but it's fun!

It's a good thing. I tried watching Gundam Unicorn, which takes place chronologically after the 3rd series of the original universe, and I was totally lost by the third episode lol

This series probably going to end up having something to do with Turn-A Gundam, if you get curious.

The third episode is out now and I gotta say, this is a strange mecha show even for me.

Anyways, Monday is struggling a bit mentally while the crew goes out near the natural/safari to do some exploring. We still don't know a whole lot about the technology in their world so it might take some time to get the world building part going.

Bathroom inside a mobile suit? That's something.

It's like I am watching Turn-A again. I like Turn-A.

I'm pretty sure I'm dumb.

I'll just not make any more guesses.

Four episodes now and I feel underwhelmed. The character casts needs development and the pacing feels slow. One thing I do like is how the battles are coordinated with that old school feeling. However, I don't think I feel attached or can relate to any of them. Monday and Aida are probably the ones that needs a bit of characterization the most considering they are outsiders coming into the show.

Well at least technical quality with the soundtrack is alright.

I'll give this show more time of course since it is only the first four episodes but overall pacing could pick up soon. The action in the latest episode with Klim was okay although his personality is a bit egoistic.

Yeah this show, it's just so surreal so far. The characters just don't act logically. Is the show trying to be whimsical in that way?

At least we now know that the main character does, in fact, even Gundam. (And that Klim does not even Gundam)

So now I'm just waiting for Raraiya to get her own Gundam, since Aida's red mech does appear to be some strange type of Gundam as well.

Looks like it's time to go 3x as fast next week.

I have to say after 4 episodes, this will be the first show i drop this season. It has been incredibly underwhelming, i understand they are trying to appeal to a nostalgia element with the art style, but to me it just seems outdated. The combat animation this episode was really underwhelming and not really interesting. It seems like the director is trying to relive the "golden age of Anime" or w/e. The characters to me have proven to be incredibly uninteresting with incredibly poorly explained motivations.

The main character is a mess, just feels poorly written. There is no way to follow his reasoning the last two episodes. I dont understand why he feels in debt to Aida. He even mentions the pirates are doing something he considers bad by using taboo technology, yet he chooses to fight for some reason. The reasoning of My mom and i know nothing about the capital army, therefore they are the enemy. Yet the space pirates who constantly endanger civilians, essentially kidnap him and his friends and kill the people who are trying to rescue them are the good guys? I just dont get it. The MC has worried about AIda, and has helped her the entire time, yet she wants him judged under pirate law which i assume is not a good thing. The main character is protecting Aida because of love at first sight basically.

Aida was interesting in the first episode, but with each episode that passes, she seems to become more and more one dimensional. Just some spoiled idealistic kid who is great at getting other people to die for her.

This show is just annoying me all around, which is kind of a shame since i usually enjoy Gundam shows.

I haven't seen much of the newer Gundam, so I don't know if this series is what I expected.
