While watching Gundam X, i also watch Chihayafuru (in 1 day) and finishing Brave 10 anime. Yeah that’s how bored i was with X. Gahhh… i am mad… mad because so many people thinks that Victory is as bad as X or worse. With X… is the whole new level! sure the starting few episodes are smooth in the eye. Garrod is the kind of hero that you have been wanting to see. Hijacking a MS no sweet. Capturing and retrieving a bishoujo no sweet. Got his own personal Gundam complete with the satellite microwave system. And manage to make his girlfriend in coma in just 2 episodes (like i read in a motivational poster lol).
And after that is going downhill. They were moving around on earth. The space battle is like what? 5-6 episodes? all whining about newtype. The space rebellion and new federation forces are a joke. No eye candy… in fact i realized after Zaku and other MS in the first Saga. All the MS in Gundam are jokes, just there to show. Not memorable.. i can’t even remember their model name lol.
The plot in Gundam X is just about situation follows war aftermath. How the scavenger called Vultures do their job with occasionally intercept with the New Federation, being that we only know after halfway to the show. And suddenly Space Rebellion thrown in to the midst. Why i am not surprise? its kinda forced, and the de-tour to the whatever the name of that kingdom. It is so random!! finally i guess the show got canceled and they make do in whatever episodes left to conclude the show… Pheww… Can’t believe the leader is so naive to get manipulate so easily. The battles are meh, especially the last battle. ‘I will kill them all with my satellite system!’ and ‘I stop them with the satellite system’ NOT EXCITING at all. Yep basically the ending are just the collision of the beams only. Something like that. And they don’t even explain why the hell Garrod can use the satellite system when the system is in manual mode.
To end it. Nobody dies… again. How the hell you want to show the ugliness of the war if everyone lives happily ever after. I had enough of that, i seriously must stop watching Gundam for sometime lol. There are still MS08th to watch, and the new Unicorn and Age. But i probably will wait till they are finished. And also i will re-watching Seed, Destiny and 00. I will not re-watching Turn A cause, i think, the show is still fresh in my memory, and my hatred for Loran is still there lol, and i probably will review Turn A as well without re-watching it.
I probably need to finish some anime that i watch recently, so next one hopefully can watch Index till finish… or i will probably also watch new ones lol.
PS: forgot to mention, Gundam X eventhough is on After War timeline, was loosely based on UC timelime, it got more reference than Victory Gundam and F91.
