So, I've decided to rewatch Gundam 00 S1 for the fourth fucking time. Why don't we celebrate it with a 00 thread?
S2 was decent when I watched it for the first time, and I tried to rewatch it, and it was utterly horrendous. S1, on the other hand, has its moments, but otherwise it's the best. The very best. Best in the last ten years, at least, not to offend the UC crowd.
And the designs are love! I'm not even talking about the Gundams, which range from cool to quite decent, I'm talking about the grunts! The Tieren is awesome, I mean, it looks like a tank on legs, and weighs like two tanks, but it's so awesome I just want to take one home with me. Or a 1/100 of it, at least.
The setting is a bit of a shame, though, but I mentally substract 200 years from the stated date, and that makes it a bit more believable. The fact that S2 turned all that into a sad waste of geopolitics, with boring Earth Federations and stuff, makes it all the more painful to me. God, if I wrote fanfiction, I'd be working on a remake right now, but alas, I am not.
Oh, and Archive Scans decided to be a bitch and their torrent link for some Gundam artbooks (including the 00 one) failed to work for some reason. Don't believe I can find those scans on /rs/, though...
