After just having WordPress eat my draft for the second part in it’s near entirety I have decided to call it a day on this endeavour. It’s already taken a long time to write up even the first part and now to have to rewrite the second part is just too much of a time sucker to deal with for a number of reasons. First I could honestly say that I am satisfied with where I am now, having covered the basic plot points in the character section already such that everything I’ve written for this one feels redundant already. Second, I truthfully don’t have much to say about the other sections other then that I was immensely satisfied with the music and animation and how both always seemed to come together to fit the mood of a given scene very nicely. As for the mecha design, I’ve appreciated since the first episode of season 1 how it took the Gundam aesthetic, but made the designs uniquely Anno Domini, forging a comfortable middle ground between the classical Mobile Suit design of previous series and those of Syd Mead in Turn A Gundam. Finally and with all of this said I think it’s time I moved on from this series and these reflections on it so that I can actually have some time to enjoy myself watching the anime that are out this season as well as for the purpose of finishing the huge backlog of anime and games I have going, which I haven’t been able to do so far. Then I can also get back to writing articles again that don’t just have too do with Gundam 00.
I’ll possibly get this second part out at some point down the road, but not for a while. I don’t want to make myself sick of Gundam by the time Unicorn roles around after all. In the mean time if you are looking for a good summing up of the series, I’ve found it as I was writing these bits up over the past couple of months in Gundamn@MAHQ’s in-depth podcast discussion on Gundam 00. If mine has spanned a month then there’s has spanned at least a year, and you get a vocal appreciation and constructive criticism of the show that typed prose simply cannot compete with and that is also on a level of fairness I think anyone can appreciate. It basically renders my goal here in providing in depth analysis all the more obsolete and redundant, especially since we share much the same views on just about everything that goes on in the story, with the sole exception that they had more of a positive reaction to the Gaga Squad then I did.
We will soon return to your regularly scheduled blogging, but for now I’ll answer any questions about the series anyone might have.
