On the 4th day of Christmas, my anime gave to meâ€¦
4 Brand New Gundam.
Gundam 00 (aka g00ey) first few episodes did not impress me at all. While many others had praised it, I found it to be sucky and downright poor. Even Gundam Seed Destiny’s first impression was better.
But in later episodes I began to find a strange appeal to the very overpowered Gundams, especially in the latest few episodes. The Meister’s are beginning to push their Gundams more as they are backed into a corner and the struggle that was lacking earlier on finally forces some character development to take place among the emo pilots.
The Meisters aside, the Gundams are cool. And if they can continue to come up with surprises such as the one below, it’s only going to get better.
“Surprise! I am a she-male after all!”
I know I make fun of g00ey a lot, but seriously, it’s much better than I expected and is definitely memorable. How often do you see a Gundam perform a sex-change (or at least, turn into another unit) in front of your very eyes?
