In the distant future, mankind's dependence on fossil fuels will lead to their complete depletion, an energy crisis unlike anything the world witnessed. Out of retaliation and fear, humanity began focusing at an alternative source of energy: solar power. Different nations have united together to form three major factions—the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations, the Advanced European Union, and the Human Reform League. Each of these sectors has access to a solar power generator, which gives them limitless energy.
As a result, countries that were once dependent on the sale of fossil fuels are now plunged in poverty, leading to years of warfare and internal strife over the control of solar energy. Amid this chaos, an unknown paramilitary organization appeared identifying themselves as "Celestial Being," aspire to end all warfare through armed intervention by using mysterious and technologically advanced Mobile Suits known as Gundams.
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 follows the story of Celestial Being's Gundam Meisters Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism, and Tieria Erde. These four dive into the devastating battle between the three superpowers to accomplish their goal of changing the world.
Welcome, anime enthusiasts, to another insight-filled review by none other than The Anime Critic. One of the most cherished responsibilities I have is guiding you, the audience, through the lush landscapes of animation and storytelling that define the anime world. Today, I am thrilled to dive into the engrossing and multifaceted universe of Kidou Senshi Gundam 00.
Set in a future where mankind has expanded and thrived in space colonies, Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 illustrates a world divided by three superpowers: The Union, the Human Reform League, and the Advanced European Union. These unions are in a constant power struggle over energy and territory, and the world finds itself tossed and turned in unrest and warfare. The world appears set on this destructive course with little hope for a different future. But that changes with the arrival of Celestial Beings, an organization that declares its intention to eradicate war from the world through ‘armed interventions.’
Their weapon of choice? The GN-Particles controlled by their advanced mobile suits, the Gundams. Our main protagonist, Setsuna F. Seiei, a stoic and enigmatic Gundam Meister (pilot), together with his comrades, in their symbolic battles strive to change the world. Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 effectively combines elements of politics, war, and human psychology while delivering high-paced mecha action that the franchise is known for.
The Anime Critic’s Review
Fasten your seatbelts, Mech lovers, Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 is a wild ride you do not want to miss! One of the standout features of this anime is its rich and in-depth plot. The storyline is layered with multiple arcs that weave together a tapestry of intricate political manoeuvering, intense action and thought-provoking social commentary.
The character development is applause-worthy as well. Each character has their own unique backstory that serves effectively to draw in the viewer, and guide our opinions about them. Setsuna F. Seiei, in particular, is a character who embodies the show’s central themes of morality, purpose and sacrifice in the face of larger ideals.
The animation quality and style are top-notch. Expect crisp, detailed and vibrant visuals that bring the starking reality of a war-ridden future to life. The mecha battles are incredible, adrenaline-packed sequences that rightfully earn the spotlight.
If you’re a fan of anime with soundtracks that amplify the mood and emotion of each scene, Gundam 00 ticks that box flawlessly. The music, composed by Kenji Kawai, sets the right tempo whether it be the thrilling mecha battles or the heart-wrenching emotional moments.
Whether you’re a long-standing Gundam fan or someone new to the franchise, Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 offers an intense and engaging viewing experience. Pacing yourself through the 50 episodes of this epic will be a rewarding voyage. This analyzing Critic’s verdict? Definitely a must-stream, rent or buy!
