Synopsis

When one space colony declared its independence from the Earth Federation, the devastating 7th Space War, an all-out war between Earth and space, resulted. The Federation responded to the Space Revolutionary Army with mobile suits, called Gundams. However, the Space Revolutionary forces played their trump card and dropped hundreds of space colonies onto the Earth, plunging the planet into a seven-year-long nuclear winter. The Federation collapsed, but the Space Revolutionary Army was unable to invade the Earth in the aftermath of the colony drop. Fifteen years have passed. The year is now After War 0015, and a New Federation has sprung up on Earth to restore order. In space, the colonial leaders have been rebuilding their own forces as well. By chance, fifteen-year-old Garrod Ran has discovered an old Federation mobile suit, the Gundam X, and now he uses it to help out the Vulture ship Freeden in its struggle to keep the powers that be from repeating the mistakes of the past.

Ah... Gundam X. How long I had waited to see you.

It's a damn shame that After War Gundam X is the least popular of all the Gundam shows, because it really is an impressive piece of work and probably one of, if not the best of Gundam spinoffs. It has the realism that Wing does not, the maturity missing from SEED, and the extra kick lacking in 00. The only Gundam since the original to be cancelled, and to be honest that's the biggest fault X has. You can't help but wonder what could've been if only that episode count reached 50.

Before watching Gundam X, I often heard how it was considered to be one of worst Gundam series out there since it only ran for 39 episodes, since it had been canceled due to low rating. But after finishing it just now, I have to say, its probably one of the best Gundam series I've seen and quite possibly one of the more under appreciated anime out there.

Story: Gundam X takes place 15 years after the war between the Earth forces and Space Rebellion which wiped out almost all of the Earth's population due to the use of Newtypes, individuals with advanced abilities. The story read more

Alll I can say is, this is definitely one of the most underrated Gundams of the franchise, and an underrated anime in general. I don’t get why the hell they can bring SEED and SEED Destiny, and not X and/or Turn A? What I really liked about this series was it took a different direction with the newtype concept that was a re-occuring element in the UC sagas, mostly in Zeta and CCA. Yes, newtypes can be elite pilots, but Tifa demonstrates that newtypes aren’t exclusive to this rolel. Granted the extremity this anime took with that concept felt out of place for Gundam, in read more

Gundam X gets a bad reputation much of the time due to the fact that it was canceled—the only Gundam since the original to get cut short. We'll probably never know what set of circumstances led to the early end of its broadcast in Japan, but there is one thing I can say. Much like the original Gundam series, Gundam X was extremely underappreciated in its time.

In a technical sense, the art, music and sound effects are roughly equal to Gundam Wing. They were produced back to back, so this is expectable. If you've seen Gundam Wing, then you know what Gundam X looks and read more

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
Both shows have similar plot (Earth vs Colonies) as well as "Freedom fighters" Cast and a group of Gundams as well. Mecha design are almost similar in terms of Gundams and the action is great as well.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Both show's protaganists (Lelouch and Garrod) involve with the conflict by meeting a mysterious girl (C.C. and Tiffa) and would later fight for freedom from discrimination packed with powers (Geass and Newtype) and Mecha Action (Knightmare Frames and Moblie Suits).

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Main group fighting to end wars with different objective (Ptolemy from Celestial Being whose role is to end armed conflicts whereas Freeden from Vulture fights to end the conflict between Earth and Colonies), group of characters fighting in Gundams, and a mysterious force behind the scenes are trying to get in the way.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season
Conflict between Celestial Being and Earth Sphere Federation is similar to Vulture and United Nations Earth. Mecha action, drama, character development, and romance involved.  
reportRecommended by Rikudo14
Anime: Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
This series resets the values of the UC timeline. Newtypes was just an ephemeral construct caused by war between human's who have opposing viewpoints on the evolution of mankind. Defining evolution only holds back the advancement of mankind, this Gundam was mind-blowingly deep. Super underrated
