Synopsis

The year is Universal Century 0088. Directly after the end of the Gryps War, Haman Karn and her army of Zeon remnants on the asteroid Axis begin their quest of reviving the lost empire of the Zabi's, and proclaim themselves as the Neo-Zeon. With the Earth Federation as hapless as ever, only the Anti-Earth Union Group (AEUG) is able oppose the plans of Neo-Zeon. In need of all the help it can get after being decimated in the previous war and losing many of its key members, the AEUG ship Argama enlists the aid of a young junk collector from the Side 1 colony of Shangri-La named Judau Ashta to pilot its newest mobile suit, the Double Zeta Gundam.

Mobile Suit ZZ Gundam has a bad history when it comes to Gundam fans but its not a bad show even though its not as dark and serious as Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. The show eventually does get serious and becomes good just not as amazing as Zeta Gundam.

Story: the plot takes place after the final battle of Zeta gundam and the crew of the Argama are still exhausted lost many good pilots.They take refuge on a colony called Shangri-La. There they met Judau and his crew who are junk dealers trying to make a living for themselves. Judau and his friends eventually become read more

This is a direct sequel to Zeta, but not only as that, I think of them as one big series itself despite the opposite nature of the first half ZZ that no reviewer should over look when reviewing this anime. Apparently some of the audience, executives of Sunrise and Bandai, and Tomino’s wife thought that Zeta was way too dark and gritty which is something many fans thought was what made that series distinguishing. Plus Tomino even felt bad about the nature of Zeta and thinks anime should make people happy. Then again, he was going through a depression. While with the first half of read more

Here is the short part:

To me there will be 3 types of people who will watch ZZ.

1.Those who enjoyed the angst of Zeta
2. Those who didn't (Me)
3.Those who have never watched a UC Gundam series before

To the 1's I say: This may not be the series for you as it is very lighthearted and sometimes campy from the beginning and doesn't really lose touch of these roots as it grows from it.

Tot he 2's: I sympathize with you, and say that you will most likely enjoy the fresh characters and their passion in what they do.

To the 3's I say: Why are you starting read more

Mobile Suit Gundam Double Zeta.

It gets a lot of bad press. "Worst Gundam Ever" is a common phrase when ZZ comes up in conversation. However. I'm going to go and stand out on a lonely, creaking limb and say I liked it. Say I liked it better than Zeta. Now let me tell you why...

The Characters:
The main difference between Zeta and ZZ is that a majority of the main characters are teenagers. Judau Ashta - the protaganist and pilot of Gundam Double Zeta - isn't interested in piloting or fighting at all in the beginning. When the badly damaged Argama lands at read more

Anime: Dirty Pair
Classic Science-Fiction series that have a comical tone. A few characters have resemblances between each other in both series.

Anime: Macross 7
Both Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ and Macross 7 have odd reputations, since they're both the goofier installments in their said franchises. If you're someone who was able to tolerate and enjoy one of these shows, then check out the other if you're into that series as well, who knows maybe you'll end up liking the show a lot! When it comes to these two, "watch it for yourself" is your best option.

Anime: Kikou Senki Dragonar
Dragonar is the first and one of the best AU Gundam's... unofficially that is! Dragonar was an attempt by Sunrise to make another franchise to surpass Gundam and well, it's obvious how that turned out but regardless it's still an excellent series on its own right. The tone is very comparable to ZZ but with more consistent storytelling and characters, with an all around more enjoyable main cast. There's also many parallels to the original Gundam. Basically if you're a classic 80's mecha fan and haven't gotten to Dragonar yet, definitely check it out.
