Gundam 00: Not Total Shit!

First episode of Gundam 00 aired, and it’s not totally horrible! Aside from the openings and endings that make my ears bleed, the actual episode was alright. The design work, character and mecha-wise is still terrible, but I guess it’s what kids like these days. I’d prefer it if it was a bunch of hardened old dudes fighting, but whatever. I did very much like the tone of the opening scene, even if it was a totally laughable commentary on the political climate of today.

The story is as retarded as I thought it would be, though.

But it seems like the characters think that as well, so maybe it won’t be filled with all those oh-so-hilarious Seed-styled contridictions.
