" @Niko: yes it is a master piece even when i like an anime , i always try really HARD to found the bad part and i only found little to no , which is in somewhat idiotic camille in the beginning, then he begin to actually show how his piloting style is which is "lockon the first" style, then he managed to be outright awesome by RAMMING The O "
Then your not trying let's run through them , it's a pretty good series, with excellent animation, really great battle sequences, and an amazing subplot involving Minerva Zabi, but the main plot is a mess..
1. The Titans are nothing more than the SS in space. Ttheir entire purpose is to be as evil as possible, they receive no real developement, nor are they interesting as people. Overall they are one of the weaker villains and receive a fraction of the development that the Zeon did in MSG.
2. Good God is the Earth Federation stupid in this show. They not only staff an entire army with a bunch of psychos they then precede to give the psychos control of everything. Imagine if a General preceded to kill the entire population of Phoenix. The Government than excuses the General of any wrong doing and then precedes to give him control of the entire army. At which point the General then kills the entire population of Atlanta and Boston. Theirs a reason why the Zeon are more popular then the Earth Federation and this shows the reason.
3. The main rival for most of the series, Jerid is a horrible pilot, the whole thing eventually gets to the point where they start killing each other's girlfriends. It got so bad that Tomino just created a new character to be the final boss, and had Jerid die a pathetic death.
4. Reccoa Londe. I mean wow their is character derailment and then their is the borderline misogynistic plotline of Reccoa, where she get's slapped, turns evil, and then dies while basically saying that women are weak.
So while it's a good series, it's certainly not the masterpiece that was MSG, G Gundam, or Turn A Gundam. Which sports better villains, great battle sequences, and really good character development. Personally I blame Tomino's breakdown for the failure as it prevented him from giving the main villains any depth that his known to. He was just to depressed to ever use his full abilities.
