Gundam AGE – 07

「進化するガンダム」 (Shinka Suru Gandamu)
“Evolving Gundam”

For anyone coming off the latest episode of Gundam Unicorn, it’s easy to draw parallels between the lingering hatred between the Earth Federation and Zeon to the hatred between Euba and Zalam, but it’s also easy to see that AGE’s variation lacks the seriousness and severity seen in the Universal Century timeline.

Gundam AGE – 06

「ファーデーンの光と影」 (Faadiin no Hikari to Kage)
“The Light and Shadow of Fardain”

I’ve seen some quick Gundam deliveries when they’re catapulted from a launch pad, but they pale in comparison to the instantaneous speed that Vargas can deliver a unit on the back of a truck.

Gundam AGE – 05

「魔少年」 (Mashounen)
“Devil Boy”

In some ways, Gundam AGE continues to follow a somewhat predictable progression to establish Flit as the Gundam’s pilot, but the introduction of “devil boy” Desil Galette (Takagaki Ayahi) manages to keep me guessing about the direction the series is headed.

Gundam AGE – 04

「白い狼」 (Shiroi Ookami)
“The White Wolf”

For a “supposed” kid show, there sure is a lot of man-service in Gundam AGE. I must’ve missed the memo on how the latest Gundam isn’t only for children. Oh wait, no I didn’t.

Gundam AGE – 03

「ゆがむコロニー」 (Yugamu Koronii)
“Distorted Colony”

If they had just told me that there was going to be a huge rocket attached to the other end of the colony core and that Bruzar was going to try and escape himself after detaching it, there really wouldn’t have been anything for me to nitpick about last time. Believability on moving a massive mass in a short amount of time? Check. No needless throwaway death for the commander who adopted Flit? Check.

Gundam AGE – 02

「AGEの力」 (AGE no Chikara)
“The Power of AGE”

The more I watch Gundam AGE, the more apparent the super robot influences become. We have Vargas as the old scientist/co-creator of the Gundam, Emily as his granddaughter and childhood friend of Flit, and now the AGE Builder that can create weapons on-the-fly from the data acquired by the Gundam’s evolutionary AGE System (a little too convenient, but still pretty cool to see).

Gundam AGE – 01

「救世主ガンダム」 (Kyuuseisha Gandamu)
“The Savior, Gundam”

So what’s this about being disappointed with Gundam AGE before it even started airing? I get the feeling people were confusing character designs — a stylistic choice — with production quality, just because Sunrise has gone back to the franchise’s roots. Well, I personally love it, as it really feels like Gundam AGE has brought back Gundam’s “boyish charm”.
