Let's talk about Zeta Gundam

Vintage 1985 anime, same year I was born.  Second Gundam series


Just look at that pretty animation, giant robots and all.

Magical Girls?  We got one.

Tragic Love Story?  Yep got that too.

Villains?  We’ve got Evil Space Hyuuga who seduces people to his side with the power of his sexy eyes.

Humor?  Yeah this show is pretty funny, despite being an overall tragedy.

On the whole, I have to say that I love Zeta Gundam and I totally recommend it.

“Due to the necessities of living in space, Newtypes could acquire the ability to transcend the vastness of space and achieve empathy with their fellow humans. The means they used might be something like telepathy.

In other words, even if people were separated by the obstacles of space and time, it was said that these people could overcome them and empathetically connect through their shared love.

In order to attain these abilities, people would have to better understand their situation. In that case, they could infer the situation from what they saw before their eyes, and predict how it might change and what new situation might result. However, we presently describe abilities of this kind as precognition.”

- from Zeta Gundam Novel Vol. 4; by Yoshiyuki Tomino

Day 12- favorite scene

While my feelings on Zeta Gundam are mixed, to say the least, the climax of Zeta Gundam is probably my favorite final run of any Gundam series. It’s a fantastic way to end a series with an ensemble cast: an enormous three-way battle where everyone’s life is at stake. The fact that Tomino doesn’t pull any punches with regards to character vulnerability just makes it even more tense. Plus, the fight itself is pretty fantastic: the colony laser is a really cool environment. The fact that nearly every annoying character ends up dying, mostly at the hands of Yazan, just sweetens the deal. The ending itself is kind of a dud, but taken as a whole with ZZ Gundam, it’s not too bad.

scirocco is a pretty cool guy. he make giant psychic goasts and doesnt afraid of watermelon
