So under the flag of zeon, did you believe more in the ways of the Zeon Zum Deikun or Degwin Sodo Zabi/Zabi family?
Personally I enjoy Deikun’s contolism and newtype theories, which makes zeon look like a very docile regime anyway. Only really until Degwin did anything become aggressive, and even worse with Gihren. I don’t hate all of the Zabi family though.
Garma has to be my favorite Zabi. Char’s best friend only to die at his hand by something Garma had no control over. Garma also reminds me of Angelo Sauper (in which should be the other way around chronologically, but I enjoy angelo sauper more so I suppose he comes first) who is also close to Full Frontal.
The other, who to a lesser degree, is Dozle Zabi. Patriotic and Powerful leader of the great Solomon, he didn’t strike me as quite corrupt as Gihren/Kycillia/Degwin were. He also fathers Mineva, so that’s an intense plus. He was extremely valliant and led his troops courageously so I have a high respect for him.
However I do completely blame the Zabi family for the failure of the One year war. If it hadn’t been for their horrible “who can kill who worse” bit and causing war between themselves and zeon ultimately destroying their very military from the inside, Zeon might have come out victorious. Not only that but Gihrens ideals and decision of dictatorship made me upset. Rather than Deikun and eventually Degwin’s ultimate decision for peace, Gihren wanted to force natural selection under his own hands for newtypes.
I extremely love these two notable mentioned Gouf pilots, Norris Packard and Ramba Ral. Both found motivation in protecting a loved one, and were also both brave and spirited leaders. I do enjoy Ramba Ral’s comedic personality though, so I like Ramba moreso.
M’Quve was quite a lovely character to me. I don’t know why, but I kind of loved how his head worked. Very clever in fighting the gundam, and I almost want to say that char ruined the flow of his battle, but I digress.
So, in case you took the time to read, or not, tis all good, what did you think of the Zeon Empire? Of course, I only based around the one year war, feel free to go all the way to 0096.
