Well guys I finally finished watching the 1st season of Gundam 00, and the 1st thing I want to say is that I am glad that I decided to give it another chance. Just like last time, it was hard to sit through the 1st 10 or so episodes, since there is so much backstory and introduction going on. However, things really start picking up after that, especially when the Trinitys arrive on the scene. I am itching to get the 2nd season and probably will sometime next week. Anyways here are some of my thoughts on the 1st season and please free feel to give me your thoughts on it as well.
-Once again, I wanna mention that Lockon Stratos is one cool mother****er. I really liked his character, and even though I knew he was gonna die beforehand, his death still managed to bring out some strong emotions in me. I got to say that, at least to me, his death was the most touching death in all of Gundam, with the except of Lalah’s, which actually brought me to tears the 1st time I watched it. Anyways, I hope that Lockon’s twin brother is as great of a character as him.
-Other characters I really liked were all of the other Meisters, Sergei Smirnov, Ali Al-Saachez, Graham Aker, and Patrick Colasour (the guy is such a magnificent moron). Characters I disliked were Sumeragi Lee Noriega (get your pitchforks out), Marina Ismail, and the goddamn Crossroad siblings (I hate them SO much for many reasons).
-I loved all the opening and ending theme songs of the 1st season. I already downloaded all of them and added them to my Gundam playlist.
-With the exception of the Tieren, which is the most cannon fodder looking mobile suit I have ever seen, I liked all the mobile suits in the 1st season, especially the Gundams Kyrios and Dynames and all the Flag variations.
-That whole last battle sequence was awesome. Nearly every character got their moment of greatness, with Lockon, Daryl, Graham, and Allelujah especially getting great moments.
