This is still on? People are still watching?

It had such a good concept but it got so dull.

I dropped it when I saw spoiler[Zeheart calmly watching on as his soldiers went on a genocide, even going so far as to attack fleeing civilian children. And to think, just a couple of episodes before this guy had teamed up with the arc hero in order to save the Earth from a battlestation-drop situation. Any sympathy I had for his cause - and any tolerance I had for the series - evaporated then and there.]

Lol@haters.

Anyway I'm sad seeing that it's 1 episode short but it's a fun and worthwhile ride.

It's really an underrated series.

AGE isn't perfect but it's still better than DESTINY and the awful Gundam 00 Movie. I'm glad I stuck with this series and I feel sorry for those who dropped it because of lolcharacterdesigns. Note: People still die in a Gundam anime, kiddy character designs included. Honestly, AGE is better than most of the currently airing stuff especially Harem Art Online and Dog Days.

They tried out the multiple generation timeskip gimmick, and it didn't work. It's overly bland and falls to all of the same trappings Gundam usually does. I did enjoy some parts in the second act, but this final third is just grating.

Surely you guys didn't expect more from a modern, toyetic Gundam series?
I have to wonder though what kind of momentum the producers expect Age to have since their big plan was to tie it into video games that wouldn't have been release until tail-end of the show.
As for The Origin, I can't really understand what there is to be excited about. How much more fluff does the OYW era need?

Yes, because Gundam hasn't been a toy commercial since 1979. That's an entirely modern concept.

There are lots and lots of things wrong with Gundam AGE.

Its Toyeticness is emphatically not one of them.

na na na na hey hey hey goodbye PG-age gundam series.

yea i knew fail series really 3 different timeline, lack of female using, lack of characters, so many put on a bus due to time skip, hype a lot so many names that but barely used, etc point bad idea.

so next gundam either finally give a MAIN LEAD FEMALE gundam pilot or we go back to GS era to SAVE_US.
