Ah, being the vice president of the anime club at my local college has a lot of benefits for this blog. It gives me a bunch of people to network with easily, and it exposes me to anime I would never have seen otherwise.
Today, we’re going to talk about
Mobile fighter G-Gundam. This is an anime where there has been a major renovation in politics. Instead of sitting around in a debate chamber, countries send a champion to pilot a giant robot and go fight other countries giant robots for the right to rule. It’s like politics, but MANLY.
Episode 1 is where we are introduced to our main character, Domon Kasshu, representing
, who is a quiet brooding character, looking for a person in a photograph. Mannerisms remind me of Cloud from FF7, Seeing as while he doesn’t really socialize well, he still has a good heart. Of course, he’s also a legendary martial artist. You can’t claim to represent Japan if you’re not a legendary martial artist after all. Japan
Anyway, in this episode, Domon goes to
to fight an angry redhead for dominance. While in Italy , we learn that the civilians don’t actually LIKE having guys in giant robots fighting for dominance, because the giant robots smash things, ruining people’s lives. This of course leads to Domon fighting the angry redhead in the middle of the city. Italy
Of course, before this fight we see an incredibly long transformation sequence that involves a lot of posing, while you wonder why the bad guy doesn’t just kick him while he’s doing this transformation sequence. Giant robot shows make no sense.
Overall, I actually found this show quite entertaining actually. The fight scenes are fun to watch, and it’s always fun seeing some giant robots duke it out. Action in incredibly solid, and leaves little room to complain in that department. Overall, first episode is good, cheesy fun.
