    I dunno, it needs a little more development. Hell, even the characters in the show said
    That having an army to end all wars was contradictory

    But I did confirm that even from different angles, I still don't like that kyrios gundam(I think it's the forward pointing wings on the knees).

    I just hope they resolve the issue of the seemingly good guy gundams being totally invincible vs everything else being obsolete, fairly quickly. Gundams vs cannon fodder gets boring real fast.

    I assumed it was tradition for Gundams to always be godly...

    Is it just me or did the mobile suits in the opening look a lot like a metal gear?

    Yeah they didn't look as conventional but at least they're trying something different. I guess its cause they were the early models, not to mention the Gundam they encountered was supposedly the first prototype Gundam ever.

    Dynames is my strong favourite right now, Exia and Kyrios up after that.

    I'm betting Celestial Being's actions will change as they start to win and the other powers begin to falter, they'll try to take over the world or something and then Setsuna will have to fight back against them >__<

    I liked it,although being UC fan the gundams just did not do anything for me. But the idea behind it sounds interesting and has some potenial. But so did seed and it no where but took forever to get there.

    My only real hope is that is an entirely new story and not just a retelling of a UC story line.

    I bet this is gonna be shit. gundam has been in a very steady decline since the early 90's, even though Turn A was a very, very high point, the descent into "shit" sped way up after that. I hope it'll be good, but I'm ready to be let down.

    if they actually manage to pull off something NEW, I'll be shocked. the first episode with a masked villain will be the last one I watch. that being said, I'm about to watch the first episode. if there's a masked villain in the first episode...

    From what I'm seeing right now I don't see this being yet another retread of UC if it is I'll stop watching it.

    That said the celestial being group reminds me a lot like the main cast from gundam wing, all powerful gundams and fighting against the man in a sense.

    From the first ep, I like what I'm seeing. The Gundams themselves have a very refreshing design while still being Gundam-ish and having some nods to previous units (First Gundam/Strike, Zeta, Unit 2, Buster). The story so far seems good and while I do see some similarities to Wing, it's different enough for me to keep watching.

    I agree very wingish if that is a word. But I will contuinue to watch for the next several episodes.

    Not only are the gundams super powerful like wing, but the enemy suits are more like a leo or the zuda than any other suits. Out side of gundam they scream of zone of the enders.

    it was complete shit. tired of these god-like gundams. tired of characters that arent at all interesting when you meet them. tired of nonsense "fighting to end all wars" and cookie-cutter plots.

    Gundam is dead. I'll watch Turn A Gundam now, and remember the days when the Gundam name actually stood for quality. it USED to be a human drama about war, with the mecha (while extremely cool) serving as the equivalent of tanks and jets. the mecha didnt used to be the focus. that's all it is now. Gundam has lost it's soul.

    :(

    What the hell...it was one episode of a probably 50 episode series. That's like walking out after the opening credits of a movie and calling it garbage.

    For the record I enjoyed it.

    Not always, 08th was probably my favorite. Gundam wing and Gundam seed are probably the worst offenders in the "OMG IT'S A GUNDAM NOTHING CAN STOP IT!!!" category.

    I've seen enough garbage gundam shows in my life to make that judgement in the first episode.

    00 was practically screaming "hate me".
