Synopsis

In A.G. 101 (the 101st year of the Advanced Generation calendar) a mysterious entity known only as "UE", or "unknown enemy", attacks and destroys the space colony Angel. This brutal attack becomes infamous as the "The Day the Angel Fell", and marks the beginning of humanity's war for survival.

The series begins in A.G. 108 when the UE attack the space colony Ovan, where Flit Asuno lives with his mother. Flit's mother is killed by the UE, and in her belongings (in an object called a "AGE Device") he discovers the blueprints for a powerful weapon from the past - the ancient messiah named "Gundam."

From these blueprints, Flit spends the next several years studying engineering at an Earth Federation base on the Nora space colony and designing the AGE-1 Gundam. Seven years later, in A.G. 115, Flit completes the Gundam, just as the UE attack Nora. Flit and his lineage's battle piloting the AGE-1 to protect mankind is about to begin.

Since completing the series, I feel I should update this review.

Well, this will be my first ever review for a series.. reasons for me actually taking the time to write one, is because I believe this is a very underrated series as it's part of the Gundam franchise.. I'll break it down.

Story: 10

The story progress was brilliance at it's best. The show progresses throughout 100 years, and moves through three generations.. I felt this was a very interesting concept that could be explored in other Gundam series in the future. There was a lot of accusations towards this series about being a children's version read more

I was quite reluctant to write a review on this, but after seeing this anime getting so much hate which it truly doesn't deserve, at least not until someone has seen at least first few episodes of an anime which is expected to have a 4Q run (50-ish episodes), I decided to write a review on much hated Gundam AGE to share my takes on it.

What the synopsis tells is, the story begins with the death of Flit Asuno's mother. Flit's mother, and probably his entire family became a victim of an attack by Unidentified Enemy, or UE as they are referred to in short. read more

I'm kind of a minimal Gundam fan. I was raised by badly-dubbed Malay episodes of G Gundam and Gundam Wing, and i've seen the first two episodes of Gundam SEED and i kind of enjoyed it.

When i heard about people raging over Gundam AGE, i said to myself "Hm, stupid weeaboos not being raised by Doraemon, Astro Boy and Ninja Boy". From the character design i can basically tell that it's not only for kids, but it's also for parents or those raised by traditional kids anime from the 80's and early 90's. And i understand that. This is not for the 00/SEED fan. And read more

Review from my POV (w/personal biases after watching whole run)
Lite Spoiler Warning

Pros:
+ The concept of a "50 episode run, going thru 3 generations of a central conflict with protagonists that relate to each other" sounds pretty FN dope and it works....... some of the time. (like a compact 0079, Zeta, ZZ run)
+ The Viewer should should like they were given positive dividends when continuing from Gen 1 thru Gen 2
EX: Gen 1 Flit was aiight, BUT Gen 2 Flit was pretty Badass. He develops a cold hatred towards the enemy after what we've seen him go thru read more

Recommendations

Anime: Aldnoah.Zero
Both revolve around a story where humans from mars come to invade the humans of Earth to take the planets from them, and the humans from Mars have the better technology.

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Although the two are not related, but there's a reason why I recommend this one:

1. The character design reminds us with the character design we see before (PMMM with Hidamari Sketch, Gundam AGE with Inazuma Eleven).
2. At first glance the story is lighthearted, but the longer storyline, the more serious gradually.

Anime: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
There's the obvious "beautifully illustrated space mech fighting against an initially vague enemy" factor, but I find them to also be similar in spirit. Gundam AGE's AGE System that learns from the Gundams' battles is similar in spirit to Gurren Lagann's Spiral Energy; just as Spiral Energy reflects how humanity keeps going and is evolving day by day, the AGE system is a weapon system that evolves right alongside its pilots.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Gundam AGE is just like NGE, but much better.

The mechas are better and it doesn't run out of money at the end.

The protagonist knows what he must do to save the world.

Anime: Gundam Build Fighters
In Gundam AGE: Children must use their Gundams to save the world. In Gundam Build Fighter or GunPla, they must use their custom built plastic model to battle other players. Familiar Gundam models can be seen in both series. Both are produced by Sunrise who are known for their Gundam franchise.

Anime: Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince
Similar story and mecha action. Young pilots must work together and defeat the "aliens." The aliens are advance species who are above all humankind. Wulgaru=Vegans
