So you all should know by now that I am a sucker when it comes to mecha anime and Bleach. Oh and I can’t forget the animes from my childhood either. Although they might be considered as cartoons? Hmm I don’t know lol. Call them whatever you want, but the fact remains I watched them when I was little. Anyways let’s get to this review. This anime aired in 2007 and went till 2008. It also got a second season and it’s just as good. As I always say that’s for another time and blog post.
So in this story we follow a young, Setsuna F. Seiei and a group called Celestial Being. Him and Celestial Being have come into play, because they are to eradicate war. Now I don’t want to reveal to much, but one of our main characters does die. I won’t spill the beans on which character dies though. I really enjoyed this anime. It was definitely different from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and it’s sequel Destiny. Okay so I know there is a new Mobile Suit Gundam anime out.
As I can see it’s very hot at the moment and I have watched an ep or two, but haven’t really gotten the time to sit down and watch it. I will watch it eventually and make a review on it, but as I always say that’s for another time. As what I saw in the first ep it looks really promising. Back to this review. So if you have seen the new Gundam anime. Well that’s what this one is like, but a little different and older lol. I am starting to notice that all the animes in this series are unique.
One other thing that all these animes in this series always have the same common denominator. What is you ask? Well it’s simple. They always involve Gundam mobile suits in some way or form. That’s a given especially since it’s in the title, but all the Gundams are unique. At least in some ways and also I feel as Cross Ange (another anime that was done by Sunrise also) is somewhat apart of this series. Why? Well the mailriders when they transform they look like Gundams.
So if you haven’t seen this anime it’s hard to explain what I am meaning. Also the characters are unique just as much as the anime is and they all have really cool, and sometimes sad backstories. There’s nothing I like more than a good backstory. Why? It adds to the plot and makes it more better. When you have characters that don’t have a good backstory to fit the plot. Well then the plot and story aren’t going to be very good and the characters won’t be good either. That’s just my opinion though.
Anyways this review is done and over and with that I give this anime a high recommendation. Especially if you are looking for a mecha anime to watch or just something new to watch. Give this a try and I hope you like it and enjoy it as well. Until my next blog post keep reading manga, and watching anime. Stay cool guys and girls.
