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.

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

Victory gundam is a series that catches quite the bad rep with it often being regarded as one of the worst entries in the franchise, when I was going into the series I was embracing for the worst , but what I ended up seeing wasn’t the travesty some see it as but rather a solid series that was able to convey some truly beautiful moments and messages that can even act as a entry level gundam as its pretty much stand alone from other gundam despite being a universal century entry. Now don’t get me wrong, victory gundam has flaws that has garnered it read more

Victory Gundam is known to be extremely depressing and for good reason, Tomino, the creator of the Gundam Franchise was depressed at the time because Sunrise was merging with Bandai and this is personally his most hated series and even said 'You are a fool for watching this' But as a Gundam fan I felt it was my duty to watch this and I can see why he hates it so much.

While Victory is a 'kill em all' series, a lot of it was rather unpleasant to watch as there were a lot of deaths that were a little extreme like beheading, vaporized by read more

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

Anime: Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku
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.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
Iron blood orphans and Victory both revolve on the idea of Child soldiers fighting against a large military force.

Though victory gundam is more grimmer and IBO is more lighter.

Anime: Bokurano
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  read more

You can't get more "Kill em' All" Tomino than these two ... both can be a hit or miss though, I personally didn't like Victory too much but loved Ideon. I'm sure many are different on that, or may agree, might love or hate both, etc! All in all though if you want brutally grim Tomino shows, these are it.
