Mobile Suit Gundam 00 ~A Wakening of the Trailblazer~ Mini-Review

I got my copy of Gundam 00 A wakening of the Trailblazer Complete Edition today. I would've had this yesterday if it were for the Clearance Delay with Fedex, but I probably wouldn't of acquired it with all the snow. There was no normal mail yesterday because of it around where I live.


The Complete Edition is everything you'd expect for a special release. It comes with the Movie itself, a Bonus Blu-Ray with everything that was used, Interviews, Trailers, and some other stuff (Haven't put that in yet). Amazingly it comes with Storyboards for the entire Movie, the Script, and an information Booklet about characters and mecha.


The Movie itself is great. It's basically like what Gundam W was to Endless Waltz. I actually like this a little bit more than that. The Story is very good, with one hell of a twist to end the Series. The only disappointing thing about the Movie I thought was that there's no real villain. Otherwise, it was very good with it's action scenes.


If you haven't checked out this Gundam Series, it's definitely worth checking out. Starting with the First Season to this Movie. I absolutely loved the Epilogue, and how it closes the Series off. It ends certain plot holes left open at the end of Second Season, and brings an end Setsuna's story. It's right up there with different Gundam Series, and in my opinion a lot better than SEED or SEED DESTINY in terms of newer Gundam Series. In fact, it's right up there with Original, Zeta, CCA, V, G, W. There's still some Gundam Series I need to watch like Stardust Memory, Turn A Gundam, F91, 0080. I also tried getting into Gundam X half a decade back almost, and the thing that ruined that for me was how the Series cancellation really ruins the second half of the Series, having the ending rushed. Another thing I loved about 00 was that it was the first Gundam Series to be produced in HD. After Unicorn's 6 Episode run, I definitely can't wait to see what the next Gundam TV Series will bring if one is announced. For now I might just rewatch different Series I've seen, or Series I haven't seen before. I'm also enjoying the newly released games such as Gundam Musou 3 (DWG3). I also can't wait for SD Gundam G Generation World.
