SYNOPSIS
While the Gundam series is most known for it’s emphasis on war and the titular robots role in them, in 1988 Sunrise decided to make a series that focused on the real world repercussions of war as seen through the eyes of an 11 year old named Alfred Izuruha. What follows is one of the most dramatic and emotional Gundam series of all time as it truly shows that the harshness of war more often than not can…and will break the fragile bonds of innocence. The boys go over the show, dig deep into Gundams history, Jahmere explains why this show almost drove him to tears, and the guys try to figure out why the animation studio decided it was best not to give Alfred pants.

    From what I’ve read the latest in the U.C timeline is actually G Savior a live action tv movie made in 2000 it takes place in U.C year 223

    • SeinenNinja

      Do not watch G-Saviour. It is like a bad SyFy original movie but with mechs.

    • http://electricsistahood.com/ VichusYotaru

      I was going to look up a timeline map. This saved me time! I watched G-Saviour. That was unnecessary.

  • William Trengove

    About Turn-A’s main character…He’s a Boy named Loran, but since he looks VERY much like a girl, he dresses up as a girl to have an Alias named ‘Laura’

    • Jahmere Durham

      Ugh……that sort of explains the mustache Gundam

    • SeinenNinja

      To be honest, it wasn’t Loran’s decision to do it.

      • William Trengove

        yeah…It really wasn’t, but hey that’s what ‘Best Friends’ are for right?

  • Megistus

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1Fa60qR6Vc Enjoy. Gundam-0080 isn’t sad to me per-say…it’s soul draining;as is Now and Then, Here and There. Everything about the show just drains the energy and life from you.

    • William Trengove

      I see someone listens to Gundamn@MAHQ :P

  • Wakashi

    Possibly my favorite Gundam series from the UC universe. It was short, sweet and to the point; pretty much all the essential themes and aspects of Gundam wrapped into 6 episodes. It also had my favorite but short-lived zeon mobile suit, the Kampher. I still need to find the time to build the gunpla model, it’s been sitting in a box in my room since Otakon, lol.

  • Wakashi

    I feel like legit tragedy isn’t enough to make Mike cry unless there is moe involved. Even back when I got really into the Clannads and Kanons, Air was boring and blatantly emotionally-manipulating to me (I dropped it at ep 3 and just watched the abridged movie version which was okay). At the end of the day he has a right to that opinion but….ugh…Air made you cry, really?! (I will say I like the OP theme though)

  • Emblyon

    I just remembered somthing about 00.
    it is the only anime series that i am aware of where female characters chests appear to get smaller as the series progresses.

    • Emblyon

      i thought i would get some sort of remark from somebody. But no-one?

      • http://electricsistahood.com/ VichusYotaru

        Martinez bait doesn’t work if the Martinez isn’t in the house.

        • Jahmere Durham

          Mike rarely visits the site. He’s mostly on the FB page.

          • http://electricsistahood.com/ VichusYotaru

            Doesn’t make a lot of sense, since more feedback and comments end up here than on FB.

          • Jahmere Durham

            Well he doesn’t check here because he doesn’t feel like it. I’m the only one who checks here and FB.

          • http://electricsistahood.com/ VichusYotaru

            I get it. Best buddies with Mark Zuckerberg (“Zucky Zuck”, as Mike calls him) and all.

            Well let’s say that you wanted to do a poll. A poll on, say, what video game should be played on a 2GaM live stream. Would Mike be more likely to get feedback here, or on Facebook?

          • Jahmere Durham

            FB. As thats where the poll is. And I posted it, so I monitor it.

    • http://electricsistahood.com/ VichusYotaru

      Good news for Mike, then. You’ve reminded me to finish 00. Got caught up in an anime storm, and never got back to it.

  • Emblyon

    Gundam unicorn episode 7 is out! And it’s dubbed too.

  • Guest

    Hey 2GaM, I don’t know if you guys knew about this but Daisuki.net has official streams for Zeta Gundam and also the first ever official English translation of ZZ Gundam. I might be in the minority, but so far (I’m 26 episodes in) I like ZZ Gundam more than Zeta, because it’s just more fun than trying to be serious, and I wasn’t bought that much by the serious tone of Zeta Gundam like I thought I’d be initially. ZZ Gundam just doesn’t care and does whatever.Even in the beginning of ZZ Gundam’s OP the singer yells out “ANIME JA NAI!” (This is anime).

    Is that a war in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
