This story is set thousands of years in the future. The people of Earth have forgotten the space wars of the past, reverting back to a pre-industrial existence. But the lunar settlers known as the Moonrace, who have retained their high technology, now plan to seize their mother planet for themselves. As the war of the worlds begins, a young Moonrace citizen named Loran Cehack, pilot of the legendary Turn A Gundam, struggles to bridge the gap between humanity's long-separated branches.

Turn A Gundam marks a turning point in the career of Yoshiyuki Tomino. Caught in a severe depression during and after the production of Victory Gundam he turned out two lackluster projects (Brainpowered and Garzey's Wing). As he came out of his depression he began developing an idea for a new Gundam series to include all the alternate continuities into one the Correct Century. He succeeds with Turn A Gundam.

Breaking away from his Kill 'Em All melodramas that marked his earlier successes, he came up with a much lighter outlook which has shown in the works after. While read more

This is not your average Gundam series.
If you're not familiar with Gundam and the UC universe in particular, then this is not a good place to start.
It does have a stand alone story, but it's certainly not for people who have little to no prior knowledge about the franchise.

This is a spoiler free review.


This one takes place thousands of years in the future in which the only space colony left is on the moon and obviously its population has advanced technology (including mechs of course), meanwhile, the people on earth are still living in a 1930s way of life. Everything is fine and dandy, until read more

These are stories about peace though lens of war and conflict, with Ledo of Gargantia being the actual soldier conditioned for a life of fighting while Loran is a peace loving young man trying to mediate in a war to preserve the peace he loves so much. There lack of emphasis on actual mech combat in lieu of developing the world around them. Turn-A creates this grand narrative that examines the nature of peace, and Gargantia takes that same message and condenses it to fit within 13 episodes. And yes, both are indeed worth a look at.
Both are epic old school sci-fi series with clever plotwists, great battles and political plots.
