Gundam AGE Ep 1: They aren’t kidding when they say “AGE” [First Impression]

WHY HELLO THAR. 

A young boy named Flit who has been in charged of developing the Mobile Suit, GUNDAM AGE tries warning his class that their colony, Nora is the next target of the UE’s (Unidentified Enemy) attack. Much to his horror, his speculation came true and takes action by going out into the Gundam AGE he had designed with no pilot experience and takes down one enemy before they vanish. Then suddenly, the colony is attacked from the outside and “The Day the Angel Fell” is about to reoccur once again.

Eva’s First Impression:

Oki is currently sick at the moment, so she’ll be adding her impression later!

Out of all the Gundam Series, this is definitely the most ‘childish’ feeling yet. The character designs, the age… it doesn’t feel right. I suppose because it’s almost difficult to take seriously. I MEAN GOD, WHY WOULD THEY DESIGN IT LIKE THIS?!?! Don’t get me wrong it’s not like it’s ugly, but I just find it somewhat ridiculous.

I think the most annoying part about this is that, a kid who’s fourteen (HE DOESN’T EVEN LOOK FOURTEEN DAMN IT!) manages to predict that the UE (Unidentified Enemy) was going to attack their colony, Nora. On top of that, we learned earlier this episode that he is the one who designed Gundam and when he went out to find, was like, “What weapon can I use?”  Then again, he’s a kid, what do you expect? *Rolls Eyes*

DUDE. YOU CREATED IT. WHY ARE YOU ASKING THIS?!

It just, bothers me on so many different levels.

AND MILTIARY, HELLO. ARE YOU GUYS TOO DUMB TO EVEN PREDICT WTF IS GOING ON? IS IT YOUR PRIDE OF, “WE’RE NOT GONNA BE ATTACKED, NAH NAH NAH~” OR, “WE DON’T WANT TO MAKE EVERYONE PANIC!” WELL EITHER WAY, THEY WEREN’T PREPARED WHATSOEVER.

*FACEPALM*

Besides the terrible character designs and set up, I’m not going to let that stop me from enjoying the show. Without a doubt I will be both watching and covering this with Oki. It’s just this episode, just I feel like I’ll be ranting more than explaining what I liked about it. Oh wait, there’s definitely something I liked about this: THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK IS GOING TO BE AMAZING (AS USUAL).

*Sighs* I honestly didn’t think my first impression for this would be this short or bitchy…
This is probably going to be a bumpy ride.

    Hmm, I don’t think I can stand to watch another kiddie show. If it gets better based on your review, I may check some episodes out, but I don’t think I’m ever going to watch all of it. o_o

      It’s gundam, it’s not supposed to be kiddy but it’s just the character designs and the age. The writer I believe claimed he’s trying to target it to a young audience, but…
      Gundam + Kiddies = Not Very Appealing

      I just hope it’ll improve in the future. :\
