USA! USA! USA!

Smart Tabila, pretending to breaking away from our great imperial US of A, ran by the great Bill Clinton (come, that guy looks nothing like Bush but much like Clinton…Oh, and we’ll have a woman for president. Eat you hearts out everywhere, male Otakus from other countries! Mwa ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!).

But guess what? Awesome information work and good strategy backing away from our indestructible forces godly forces of USA! Nice move, CB faggots! Mwa hahahahahahhaha!

I’m still pissed that the rival of Setsuna ISN’T WEARING A MASK! Blasphemy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

His new suits got the mobility, and the weapons (he just needs to color his mobile suit red!) Give him a mask! The classic Gundam fan inside me is crying (like anyone gives a shit XD).

OK, seriously, though, this episode really tried to demonstrate why Gundam 00 is intelligent. But for me the verdict is still out.

Yes, the CB aren’t fooled by Taliban…I mean, Tabila after all. They pretended to go independent, and CB doesn’t buy that shit, and Tablia get their asses kicked. Fair enough. I guess they knew how to deal with that long ago.

I’m still wondering why they backed off from the US forces. With their powers they could easily pull off a Gundam Wing and destroy the US fleet…Oh wait, Bandai is trying to sell the anime in US, aren’t they? Mwa hahahahhahahahahahahahaha!!! Well, too bad, everyone else, they love us and want our market!

Again, seriously, I’m wondering why they decided not to attack the US forces. Perhaps they realized that it was a trick to capture them. If that’s the case than I don’t think they’re superiorly intelligent. I think they planted a mole in all the military powers in the world.

[Editor’s note: the rest of this review is based on what I remember. Still too busy to do anything]

There are still too many things going on and I’ve thought about how they can pull it all off. I think I’m just getting old because for classic Gundam and even modernized Gundam like Wing, Seed, and even Destiny, the characters were more memorable and easier for me to remember, and their names weren’t that confusing. But here, the names are hard to remember. To their credit, though, the issues involved here are far more complex than probably all the previous modern efforts to produce intelligent Gundam. In some ways not having gung ho men trying to fight for what they believe in or some young people simply wanting to live in peace and be in love (see Z Gundam) actually makes it more believable for a cynic like me who grew up in the 90’s USA. Boy I hated that era.

I love classic Gundam precisely because it became what it was in the 80’s and things were so much simpler then.

89% recommended.

  1. If in 2300, or whatever year this takes place, a descendant of Bill Clinton is seriously president, I will roll over in my grave.

    Not that I have anything against Clinton, mind you… but as a whole, the US doesn’t do very well for itself when it tries to apply the legacy clause to presidents.
