Just pull that trigger.

Look! It’s a colony! In Gundam 00! Now it’s a REAL GUNDAM! And all you UC fans have one less thing to complain about!

00 is still pretty episodic and slow-paced, but I don’t really care. Tiera is getting tons more ominous (just look at him pulling a Isako and hacking the Ptolemy’s computer with his EYES while FLOATING in a CYBERSPHERE) and Allelujah/Hallelujah is, well, split down the middle. The whole scene at the end with Allelujah hesitating in front of the Super Soldier Research facility (and Hallelujah taunting him to no end) was quite intense.

The next episode promises to show more of Setsuna F. Seiei acting like the big ol’ honkin’ idiot that he is, or possibly give us some further explanation as to WHY he is a big ol’ honkin’ idiot. For being the “protagonist”, he’s now one of the least developed characters of the series; even Sumeragi the drunkard has more personality than he does at this point. I’m betting, however, that his total lack of personality is a key point of his character.

Things still haven’t collapsed into a gigantic free-for-all yet, but it’s only the middle of season one. I expect the state of things to degenerate by the end of this season, leaving us with a nice (horrible and torturous, damn you Code Geass) cliffhanger to keep up hooked until season 2 rolls around. At least we’ll have Code Geass Part the Second to tide us over until then. And, in my case, probably Gundam X.

NOTICE SHAMELESSLY STOLEN FROM G.K. CHESTERTON

I cannot understand those that take anime seriously, but I can love them, and I do. Out of my love I warn them to keep clear of this blog.
