Battle Breaker Battlogue: My thoughts

It saddens me DEEPLY that this is what Gundam has turned into: a 30 minute toy commercial! I got into anime to GET AWAY from this kind of shallow, empty, hollowness.
I love the original Universal Century Gundam series (and all follow-ons) because of the complex and realistic plots that involve people who are caught up in a horrible war, and not just a video game to determine who’s the latest (temporary) champion.
Incidentally, I never cared for sports for the same reason: I don’t care who today’s winner is, it’s only temporary until the next time somebody else wins and then gets defeated.
And I am NOT attacking any body who likes this new show. If you like it, great. But I consider it a PALE IMITATION and a sad commentary on what was once the mighty gundam empire (kind of like what the last half of the Roman Empire was like before it faded away into history).
