SynopsisIn 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.

Latest TV Series of the Gundam Franchise (2011-12)
Review from my POV (w/personal biases after watching whole run)
Lite Spoiler Warning
+ 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 in Gen 1. and that's cool
+ The 2nd Generation as a whole was really enjoyable to watch
+ AGE-1 Spallow
- Antagonist has no face in the 1st Gen
- Little to no creativity for mobile suit design
- Took awhile for me to get into the pokemon-esque character design.
3rd GEN Cons (yes, it's so bad, it gets its own section)
- Pretty much after the halfway point of the 3rd Gen is utter bullshit. Lemme explain
- The 3rd Gen hero Kio Asuno switches up his view after experiencing something tragic, making his choices completely illogical and down right dumb. It also changes his combat style, which is also bullshit.
- Character development is pretty much shot.
- The're trying to force emotion by constantly having a death occur constantly
- Char clone. and a bad one
- Flit Asuno in the last moment becomes IMO the worst protagonist in the Gundam franchise.
A cool concept that's completely defiled by the 3rd act of this TV Series. My feels about Flit Asuno are similar to a playthrough of Mass Effect 3: I work so hard for a satisfying conclusion, only to realize that what i wanted will never be presented in front of me. read more
Without doubt one of the worst anime to air in 2011-2012 is the latest Gundam AGE. This is the first time we see such an attempt by Sunrise and it's really bad. I can go as far as to call it a disgrace to the entire Gundam franchise, an anime aimed at 5-10 year olds with mecha and ship designs stolen from SEED and 00. Truly a failure and i sincerely hope we never get to see something like this air ever again.
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.
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.
