Mobile Suit Gundam Age

Another gundam anime, I was really excited. I practically grew up with Gundam Wing, I love that one. But this one doesn’t seem all that promising. A lot of the characters have this Beyblade feel about them, that’s just wrong.

I definitely wouldn’t watch this anime just for the artwork, because it doesn’t look all that special, I see a lot of room for improvement. Gundam Wing may be old, but I honestly think that it still surpasses this one on a graphical level. Also, although it’s just a minor dislike on my part, I have to say that I don’t like most of the character’s names. When you hear the names Flint, Asem, Grudech and so on, you wouldn’t think that you’d be watching a Gundam anime.  I just don’t think they match with this type of anime. And don’t get me started on the Mobile Suits, my god.

The story, if anything, is the best thing about this anime so far. So far the story of Gundam Age hasn’t contributed anything unique to the Gundam series yet, so let’s just see what happens.

Plot Summary: It has been a few hundred years since humans began to live on space colonies. In A.G. 101, an unknown enemy (UE) “GAFRAN” suddenly attacks one of the colonies “Angel”. A long war against UE has begun.

In A.G 108, seven year old Flit Asuno lost his mother when UE attacked his colony “Ovan”. His mother left him a memory unit “AGE” which had stored data of an ancient mobile suit Gundam. In A.G. 114, Flit completes the Gundam AGE and counterattacks against GAFRANs.
