I've never really got into Gundam, but my brother watches it and tells me it's pretty cool. If they're making a movie of I'd probably go and see what it's like, although I'd be at a slight disadvantage due to me having no knowledge of Gundam whatsoever.
Don't bother, this show is horrid, it's one of the worst gundams ever made.
It's complete shit, the protagonists are severely underdeveloped, they spend an entire season hyping up the antagonists only to have them die in incredibly stupid ways, every other episode theres a deus ex machina to save the protagonists, every other episode they become even more overpowered, making the fight with the "bad" guys even less exciting and the combat scenes are very poor overall, the AD "universe" is severely underdeveloped and the show is incredibly inconsistent (For instance, Cherudim's pistols not able to even scratch Prince Ali in his Arche Gundam, yet the very next episode the same pistols take off his arm, blow the head off, basically tear his gundam apart.)
My thoughts on the final episode: A terrible ending to a terrible show. The first fight was pretty good overall, Hallejuah made his fabulous return, which I liked, how he killed Healing was pretty damn cool. Revival's death was beyond stupid. Copout 2.0, who was half blind, managed to somehow magically time it perfectally so his one second of transam would let him dodge and kill revive, why didn't revive use his trans-am? The trial field was gone.
The O vs Exia fight was abysmal, the ear bleeding marina song ruined everything. The epilogue was stupid, the innovator cameos was silly. unsurprisingly, all the good guys made it out perfectally fine while every bad guy died. Graham didn't contribute anything to this season, he was just a random hurdel they had to overcome for absolutely no reason, the innovators were jokes, ribbons was a joke, the 00 crew were all still severely underdeveloped, the gagas was fucking stupid (Why Ribbons used clones of Bring Stupidity and his brother, Devine Loser, instead of some AI is mystifying) everyone suddenly talking, understanding each other and becoming BFF was equally as fucking stupid, I understand that people who like this show are fuckwits, yet I don't agree with them and become BFF's over it.
All in all, terrible terrible series, i'm so glad this shits done and the superior FMA Brotherhood series starts instead.
P.S. i'm back fags.
