A rating of 6.69(2/04/2012) only? WTF? This show is fu#king awesome! Has all the U.C., Seed, SD, Wing and 00 fanboys/girls hijacked this forum and spammed it with poor ratings?

Well, I gave it a 5 for the first 15 episodes and then I dropped it ... Now I'm glad I picked it up again, because after that it became really awesome.

Seriously? April 1st is over in most countries. It's quite a generous average score for this mediocre show. You should've posted it after the show is over. Few good episodes among many sub-par ones don't make an 'awesome' show.

It has a lot of low ratings due to people who wrote it off because of the art style from the beginning and only watched a few episodes. It will probably go up by a decent amount when it ends, since scores from people who drop shows early on aren't counted.

Basically this many people were turned off by the art style when it was first announced (the PV on youtube if I recall correctly had 1000 something dislikes and 200 likes) and the first 15 episodes were not all that great.

The reason why you didn't see how good this show turned out to be after episode 15.

I was quite surprised that it has that average. It's a lot better than many shows with higher averages.

Its actually good after they leave Fardain (sp?). It isn't for everyone though I personally love this series it my top favorite Gundam along with SEED, Zeta, and 00. What pisses me off is when people bash it by just the trailer and character designs itself and call it childish. While this series is directed toward a younger audience than the norm it is not a kiddy kid show like SD Gundam cause if it was AGE would have aired in the morning slot instead of Sunday evening.

Its sad that some shows that are actually good got shit ratings like AGE and whatever Skullman is, but real shit like Lucky Star has 8.00+ MAL overall rating. Kill Me Baby is getting up there in the 7.00 too it isn't funny its boring. >_>

The rating is quite truthful actually. You may think is awesome but you are the weird one. There are a lot better shows than this. It's fine for killing some time but nothing more, exactly what 6.7 is in Mal grating system.

Its not weird to like this show its personal taste some may think AGE is awesome. Some might think its just to past time when there is nothing else better to watch. A few people may hate it cause they couldn't get into the characters or plot which is understandable cause I can't get into Gundam 0079. Then there are the fucktards who hate it solely for the character designs and nothing more.

AGE has one of the better stories in my personal opinion, but I don't think any Gundam can beat 00 (just the TV series movie is decent at best) in my mind. Victory might though it depends when I finally get around to it. xD

Depending on how Kio's arc goes the rating will either stay in the 6.00 range or get bumped up to a 7.00.

See how good it has been after Ep15? What? Asemu was good when he was first introduced, but the more the Arc went on, the less and less I liked him. I firmly place him just below Shinn Asuka as the worst Gundam protagonist ever.

The whole setup into Age2 was pretty stupid too. Apparently NOTHING HAPPENED in 27 years between Age1 and 2. Federation barely updated their equipment. Only a single other Diva-class ship was built, and they didn't even bother equipping it with the upgraded cannon despite knowing how effective it is.

His superiors constantly tried driving lessons and life values into him over the course of the arc, and he's learned nothing. He doesn't work as a team. He doesn't follow orders. He doesn't care about anyone else but himself and "passing his father."

I also dropped the show after about a dozen or so episodes. I find it a bit light-hearted and clearly aimed at a younger audience (it gives off a kiddies show vibe), so not really my cup of cake.

The first few episodes were okay, but it became very dull and repetitive afterwards, for me at least.

The rating will likely go up when it's done. Still though, I agree! It's way too low!
It's just the same as other Gundam series.
In fact, I'm enjoying this more than Gundam Wing and Gundam SEED.

I hope it does its a good Gundam, but the fanbase is too stupid to realize it follows the same formula like every other show in the franchise, but choose to hate on it simply cause of the character designs and the fact that its geared toward a younger audience than normal.

Well as long as I can get the complete story without this one being canceled I'll be fine. I mean if SD Gundam could go through 52 episodes with its TV ratings and poor DVD sales AGE can do it too.

I'm sure the next new Gundam will suit everyone just remember they were trying something new with AGE it can either be well received or badly received. They will learn from that and hopefully Sunrise will make the next Gundam that the older Gundam fans can enjoy as well as the ones that are new to the franchise from watching AGE. AGE to me seems like its trying to draw in newer fans outside of the usual target range and hopefully make them interested in other Gundam series like 00, SEED, and Zeta.

Gundam AGE gets a 8/10 from me so far for story and characters. It would have been a 9 from me if it wasn't for the Fairdain arc in the first gen, but after they left the colony AGE became awesome.

I dunno, other than the character designs this is pretty standard Gundam stuff in terms of theme and subject matter. I'm not sure if mid-way they changed the plot to appease older viewers more (It's possible because kids are NOT watching the show in Japan) but it's got a lot of dark themes and the death count is shooting up through the roof lately.

it IS a pretty standard gundam. It has the military, the Feddies, space, fights, tyrannical antagonist, white and blue gundam, young hero (again...).

Also, little to no CGI. Whew, that's a plus for me. Majority of criticism, before it aired, had to do with how cutesy G-AGE entirely looked. Also, compared to G_SEED (oh, gorefest), not much violence? Is that what's wrong?

And Kira Yamato still seems popular among gundam fans. Maybe it's the SEED (and 00) syndrome that's dragging AGE?

For an actual Gundams, you must say, ONLY the MC pilots a Gundam = Only One (two, but thats one more a upgrade) for Gunplabuilders and so on.
Look at SEED. How many Gundams got they? FIVES in first episode, + three (those crazy druggy kids) + 3 final Gundams (Freedom, Justice, Providence).
11 Gundams in total (Strike Rogue = Aile Strike for me).

00: 4 Gundams + 3 Thrones, kickass enemy mobile Suits (Flag > Adele) and so on. Didnt even count second seasion which even got more awesome ms.

I know in the first Gundam there was only ONE GUNDAM, but heck, most Gundam fans dont even know that. They were spoiled by Wing, SEED and 00.

Now, whats with AGE? We have the Gundam, ONE Mobile Suit of the Federation which is around equally (G-Exes/G-Bouncer), and what else? Genoace and Adele? Dude, those dont look cool (for the most, I like them).

And yeah, after SEED and 00 they kinda expect something great, which they didnt get (ITS TOO CHILDISH OMG!).
You cant stop a troll, you can only stop feeding him.
People like to rage and hate about everything, its one of the fundamental rules of the internet.
And finally, correct spellin doesnt exist either anywhere on the internet.

I would have taken you seriously if you were not a brony. Which is funny your complaining about this shows art and calling the character toddlers in your review and yet you are watching something that is WAY kiddier to AGE in comparison like MLP. LOL FAIL.

Go back to your toddler/kiddie shit known as MLP.

This.


I still would have called him out regardless, but his post in one big huge contradiction

Hates the kiddy/toddler designs of AGE yet watches something that has kiddy/childish designs with ponies and rainbows and desu~ shit and loves it.

Hates that AGE geared toward an younger audience yet watches something for little girls.

Says AGE is My little Shouta is magic and its shit yet he watches a show about ponies and rainbows and I state again loves it.

I have no problem with regular fans of MLP its just these adult men thinking they are cool shit watching an show about ponies that is geared toward little girls.

This guy is obviously an idiot who hasn't thought out his post or review.

The funniest thing is that Asemu is the oldest Gundam protagonist after Domon.

Since this show's supposed to show three generations, it's kinda difficult to rate it by only watching the first one. It's like rating the whole Gundam trilogy by only watching Gundam 79.

Guess that the main problem is that it's just another generic Gundam, which is the main reason why I'm really interested in it. I'm currently watching 00 and I just can't compare it to AGE. 00 has a more realistic story and they are focusing on lots of minor details, but it ain't done that well. And the characters are plain horrible. I'll always prefer Flit/Asemu over Setsuna. The MS designs are also better in AGE than 00. 00 may try to have a "realistic" feel on the designs, but in the end, most MS looked like heap of metal with arms and legs. As for the character design, that's just taste. I still prefer AGE over 00, as I'm not into homosexual looking guys (well, Lockon seems like the only non-homo guy in the whole show) or captains who cannot cover their breasts. Millais > Sumeragi. The only thing that's better in 00 are probably the action scenes, as it's just an action flick with robots. Doesn't really give that Gundam feel.

Summary: Gundam needs to stay generic. Inexperienced boy meets Gundam. Having professionals pilot them just ain't funny. Just imagine Flit piloting AGE-2. He could single handedly destroy the whole Vagan fleet with the Double Bullet upgrade. But that wouldn't be fun, so we get the inexperienced Asemu to pilot it and struggle and get his superiors killed. That's why I'll always preffer generic Gundam (all of them) to Wing/00 where everyone has a Gundam that's practically indestructible if it's not for the plot. That reminded me of that one time in Wing, when a Gundam pilot piloted a MP Mobile Suit and it got indestructible as well lol.

News flash: If I have to wait 15 WHOLE EPISODES for the thing to "get good" then it's a BAD SHOW.

I don't know how the Gunpla sales are for the show, but based on just the media sales, this show is shaping up to be a huge financial failure. The budget is around 2.5x higher than the average show, but the per-volume sales for BD+DVD are sitting down around 2k. (In comparison, 00 did about 25-30k per volume. Seed did 70k.) And even the average show needs around 4k to break even...

Yup, big financial failures. Since the show is no longer salvageable (60% done and I keep getting disappointed whenever I thought it would become good), they are going 100% for the toy lines and merchandise. In other words, they have to rely on the merchandise and toy revenues to break even (also Unicorn helps).

I mean, the kids love giant lizard/dragon vs. transformable robots... right?

I took a chance and made a review, rating 6 out of 10.

The funniest thing is that Asemu is the oldest Gundam protagonist after Domon.


Shiro, Domon, and Kou should be older I think. But Asem would definitely be one of the oldest. A lot of them are 15 or 16.
