Opinion Prone

My opinions, let me tell them to you.

Well, I finally got around to marathoning through Gundam 00, so here’s the review for season one. I’m still a little behind in the current season (I’m on episode 8), but I’ll probably be caught up by tonight. I’m pretty disappointed with the series in general right now though. The first season’s ending was terrible, and the second season so far hasn’t really made up for it. I really wish they had just cut out half the nonsense in the first season and filled it with all the relevant stuff they’re trying to fit into season two. They could have ended the series in 25 episodes, and it would have been better. I guess I should wait until the second season’s done to pass final judgment though.

But seriously, I’m getting so sick of Sunrise’s Zombie characters. I was going to write a rant about it, but it seems even writing about it pisses me off, so whatever. 8| Raaaaage.

    The whole first season came across to me as a bunch of battles with minimal backstory, slowly degrading almost to the point of a “new mech-of-the-week” type of show. It’s almost like they’re trying to do the original Gundam’s plot of guys-on-a-ship AGAIN, but doing it so….wrong. The second season doesn’t look to be any better…In fact they’ve practically just tossed the first season out the window to do whatever they want with this season.

    Ugh…it’s just a big mess and I wish they’d get a decent writer to make a modern Gundam series.

    Agreed, though I really feel like the story had potential for a while even if the plot was essentially the same as the conclusion of Code Geass R2. They just never bothered to develop it beyond, “OMG STOP ALL FIGHTING!!” The story never seemed to move forward, and all the character relationships felt overly contrived. And the fact they’re basically ignoring the first season is what’s making the second season crap, yup.

    There haven’t been that many post-2000 series, but of those, only SEED was worth anything.
