Synopsis

It is Universal Century 0153. On the space colonies located at Side 2, the Zanscare Empire has come to power and it holds onto that power through liberal use of the guillotine. With its forces invading the Earth and its space fleets preparing to subjugate the other Sides, the Zanscare Empire has nothing to fear from the weakening Earth Federation. It is opposed only by the League Militaire, whose state of the art mobile suits and young pilots comprise the only real resistance movement. Now, thirteen-year-old Uso Evin has been dragged into the war by a battle near his home in Eastern Europe. As the Newtype pilot of the Victory Gundam, he fights not only to defeat the Zanscare Empire but also to find out what has become of his parents, who left him behind when they went into space.

Renowned as being the most depressing Gundam show, Victory is an odd sort of a series. At times it evokes the bleakness of Tomino's older works such as The Ideon and Zeta Gundam, while at others it's a humorous space adventure with wacky kids in the vein of Xabungle.

The art is similarly variable, with some episodes looking wonderful and others distinctly less so.

The music is consistently good, however, with a full set of quality OPs and EDs, plus a brilliant, poignant insert song or two.

Essentially, Victory picks up the UC storyline long after even F91 and Unicorn are done and dusted, with the Earth Federation read more

Story: Without a doubt, V Gundam is the saddest Gundam story to date. And before anything else is said, I think it's worth a mention to say that a lot of people die, and most of the time for no good reason at all. That aside, I have to say I really loved the storyline. However, some of the story arcs in the middle could have been left out, and the story would still be intact; a lot of the time during said arcs I found myself wondering why the characters were doing what they were doing. There's not a lot of narrative glue to read more

NTHT and MSG-V are both set in a Crapsack World. Both shows are loaded well with emotional, dramatic, depressing, tragic and tearjerking scenes. Comedy is also present but slighty although the latter tends to be unexpected. Interestingly, there are many similarities between both shows' MC:
-both are innocent children who would later become child soldiers.
-both are in one way or another tend to be punched or abused by their superiors.
-both are confident, strong-willed and ready to save everyone they love.
-both face death around them with people being killed, tortured, dying, etc...
-both have heroines who possess some kind of psychic powers.
-both have tyrants who are obsessed with the heroines' powers.

There are differences though like the former having a realistic depiction of war, exploitation, oppression and chaos while the latter has 'Kill em all' element present in a couple of episodes. Of course, mecha is highly absent in NTHT.
MSG Victory and Bokurano both feature children as mecha pilots. They are forced to face the reality of saving the world from invaders with the former being attacked by a spaceborne empire and the latter being parallel Earths. The main difference is only one mecha is available for a particular Earth while MSG Victory of course being part of the Gundam metaseries features many. Also, both shows feature tragedy, sadness, depression, the relationship between relatives, friends and families and some level of comedy. All in all, both shows feature one infamous feature and that is called 'KILL EM ALL' wherein one or more characters are killed after the other. However, the hope is not lost since both shows ended with some kind of a happy ending.
