G Gundam

Show Summary

In the year Future Century 60, the Earth's elite have departed from the polluted planet to live in orbiting space colonies, each nation with its own. Below them live the commoners, people who try hard to make a living in the dingy cities and damaged communities left behind. To avoid real war, the world's governments have established a tournament to decide for a time who will control the world called the Gundam Fight. Each country devises a powerful mobile suit called a Gundam and drops it on the Earth, and these units fight each other, the last one left standing becoming the Gundam of Gundams and earning his or her nation the sovereign rights to the Earth, the colonies, and all mankind... but only for four years, until the next Gundam Fight begins. This time, however, more is going on than the tournament itself. Neo-Japan's Gundam Fighter Domon Kasshu is searching for his brother Kyoji, who has made off with their father's experimental Devil (In English "Dark") Gundam. In his hands, the weapon might spell destruction for humanity itself, and only he - along with some other Gundam Fighters(later known as the shuffle alliance)- can stop him.

  • Worst Gundam entry ever! Even worse then Seed.

    G Gundam is perhaps the Black Sheep in the Gundam family. While others tackled political issues while dealing with the results of their actions as a result as in Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Wing and Gundam 00. While others falterd due to lackluster and rehashed plots and little action (Gundam Seed) G Gundam manages to never move beyond being nothing more then an all out fighting mech show. It is light on plot and has some of the worst gundams ever seen in to this days. The story basically follows a young man who is out for revenge and wants to become make Japan the ruler of the colonies, he has to go through a ton of different nations to do so ending up with a fateful showdown with his brother in an attempt to restore order to the galaxy. In all it was just a stupid concept that should have never been made.moreless

    This show is probably the strangest entry in the franchise because it's so radically different from it's predecessors because it takes sort of a Shonen action route. But that can be a good thing because sometimes something different can equal a good show.

    I'm a fan of the Gundam franshise and I'll admit at first I was put off by this show but then it kinda grew on my and I actually love it.

    It's basically "Street Fighter" with Gundams. There are a lot of very good things to say. I do like the concept I think it's interesting but it also really helped expand on the Gundam univerise because we get to see the world and have different locations in each fight so it doesn't feel like their always set in just one arena all the time. I love how each of the Gundam's are designed their non cleche models each is always bizzarely but facinatingly different, I even like their abilities which makes them all the more unique. I really love how the fights are chorigraphed they really are intesnse and feel unpredictable, due to the fact each episode has a different oponent and the abilities they. Each fight is never too long even though sometimes there can be an arc but it's a small arc. However, what also makes the show are the characters, all have a great amount of depth as the show goes on there is always something new about them that we never knew which can make our feelings for the characters shift or grow. And each has a reason on why they want to win, which makes us care because we understand their reason. And most of all all of them actually develop as the show moves more and more forward along with each of their plots. Now a show sometimes with multiple characters and plots don't always work, but this show is able to sucessfully balance them out because it knows who each person is and what they want to do. To me my favorate characters were Domon and Rain. Both are one of my favorate anime couples because their feelings for one another. Domon is arrogant but never hotheaded, he is fiercely determined to complete is quest for revenge but makes sure his goal doesn't become obsession though it comes close sometimes, he does have warmth but doesn't show it unless it's with Rain.

    Rain is a good friend/significant other, I really like the fact she isn't just some cleche damsel in distress or even a mere hood ornament along for the ride but that she has a function. She is the engeneer for Domon's Gundam as well as childhood friend, she's sweet but very smart and does have a hint of spice in her persona, she really takes the time to listen and understand Domon, she does eventually pilot her own Gundam so she can hold her own, and she hot she does look great in that tight Gundam body suit it does display her ahem features.

    Both I feel have great chemestry, their relationship is the typical friends to lovers motiff but it's done right and I actually did deeply care and buy into it especially for what happens near the end which I won't give away but their unforgetable and beautiful.

    Well I'm finished, G Gundam like any good machine has all the right parts to make it work.moreless
  • hey i remember this spoilers

    there was the main character who was searching for his brother who had supposedly killed his parents and stole a mech capable of dystroying the world. raine who is his gundam mechanic and later pilots a gundam herself and of course serves as the love interest with the main character. then theres the british guy who uses a sword style and also has the little flower laser cannons. then there was the chinese kid who has thhe dragon gundam (its like a sterio type of the series lmao) and bas kinda annoying as most kids are. then there was the guys master who was insane and wanted to use the gundam to dystroy all humanity and let the world recreate itself. and there was a guy who looked like his brother but was acually just a random guy who was killed. apparently the nano machines in the world destroyer are able to bring people back to life but they slower take control of them over time. eventually turning them into mindless zombies. the ending was ok but it felt to much about friendship and love blah blah blah. still it was a decent series.moreless
  • good anime not in a war for once!

    mobile fighter gundam wing opens with a usual mysteryiousness like any anime has but then 1 or not even if i recall the main character domon kasshu his past is revealed in less than a second it was poor showmanship on the part of the people that created it there was also one other falut and that is my ultamite attack _____FINGER!!! it is a five minute chant that is in practiclly every episode i understand the fact of i need to yell to make myself stronger because my power level has to be over 9000!!! but there is a total overuse and even abuse of this word plus 10 out of 29 episodes revolve around pointless battles and how it makes you think he grew as a human but that is just smoke and mirrors but in the end it got to the point and became a anime i watch more than enough timesmoreless
  • Gundams being treated as sport athletes, correct?

    I remember I used to watch this show on Cartoon Network. It's a lot different from the other Gundam series, but I like it how you don't have to think too much about what's going on because there's enough suspense. As the show goes on, we have Domon's mentor, Master Asia who'd side along as the series's antagonist. Another thing is the upgrade Domon gets for his Shining Gundam. Then we have Schwartz Bruter who'd give out Domon some useful tips during his training in the mountains. This would eventually lead to his battle against the Undefeated of the East. Just a bit off the subject, but I would love it if they further expand upon the relationship between Domon Kasshu and Rain Ikimora. Not a biggie but still enough to classify a good, if not, great series.moreless
