Gundam AGE is not too bad, but it's nothing special, either... I hope they'll cancel it soon or it might get really bad...

no wonder the PG-gundam age is no good to watch besides it too not working.

1.3 different story of 3 sets of generation not much to give make short series.

2.lack of characters using come some of them got mis-used.

3.too very PG light soft to watch indeed older fans want something.

overall the age is a BOMB failure so bad only one thing to do SAVE_US GS ERA!!!

AGE is pretty awful, but then again I'm only 8 episodes into it right now and it supposedly improves. Unicorn is great though and deserves its title as the best selling OVA series of all time. We need more of that, less of... whatever AGE is.

I was one of those who looked at AGE at the beginning and went 'ew character designs' (still applies to Dique, dear god..), but really this show isn't that bad. It's weaker than the average series, but much better than DESTINY or the awful 00 movie.


You did NOT just effing say that... you're gonna start a damn war brother.

Asemu's arch is much better than Flit's.

I love Gundam AGE, but its main problem is that they seemed to have spend the entire first generation deciding which audience they were trying to get, since about two episodes in it became clear that kids didn't give a damn.

Then that led to the school arc (Which I was fine with) and now they've just started to kill people off en masse now that it's clear that kids aren't watching, I guess.

AGE isn't that bad at all! The beginning started off slow yeah, but it gradually picked itself up and started getting really interesting. Sure it's totally not as good as SEED or 00, but it's still good none the less.

Flits arc was decent, but it could have done without the Fairdain arc. >_>

Asemu's arc is amazing and I'm expecting great things from the Kio arc.

I hope the film project is true and is also a sequel to the series and not a movie trilogy. If it is a sequel they better not fuck it up like the 00 movie. >_> That is probably where the assumption that the UE are aliens came from was because of the previous 00 movie. There is no aliens in AGE. xP

AGE's 2nd opening by Nagato made 4,000 sales so even if the DVDs/BR sales suck the merchandise sales will cover them.

AGE is amazing sad to see it doing badly really am its not that bad once you get pass the Fairdain arc in the first generation.

I find Age not that bad. IMO, the thing that kinda went downhill from the start is that they portrayed the Antagonists to be aliens and focuses on just Flit (maybe some Decil...not really) while the UE were disregarded. Even in Asemu's arc, the only Vegan that has a background is Zeheart while the rest of that race is ambiguous to the viewers.

Doesn't this make you hungry?

(...)kids today are unfamiliar with wars and space colonies(...)

Seems like a questionnaire created and filled in within PR Department. So much fail.

Anyway, serves them right. AGE has a quite bad series composition and is quite shallow on character profiles and developments. Unicorn is the very much the opposite. And I don't think its success has that much to do with the UC timeline. It simply has quality written all over it.

AGE is ZZ-tier so far and it's nothing to be proud of. Second arc is a vast improvement over Flit arc, but for me it's only because it contains more mature themes and better space battles. Scriptwriting and dialogue are still sub-par though.

Overall, if I was watching this as a kid it would discourage me from checking other series pretty efficiently.

It isnt that. In Nadesico there were Aliens from the Jupiter, which you found after like... eh... 17 episodes that there were human after all. And even than only 3-4 really got a charcter development at all from the enemy. What Nadesico did instead of AGE was more focus on the crew personal problems and character development. But because we have three different arcs with timeslip in AGE, there isnt much character development you can do but the mc himself. Although they did that pretty good, Flit is lost in his revenge, Asemu has his problems with not being a X-Rounder like his father.

I have great hopes for the third arc, as, as long AGE will have around 50 episodes, the third arc will have the most epsiodes from all the arcs, so they can do in the last arc alot of character development, and, instead of before, making a harem, as that MC doesnt have to make a child.

I think AGE will have 45 episodes all together since there has been I think 15 episodes for each generation so far. Unless they decide to give Kio 20 episodes.

That's the problem.

It waay too average.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

really give total bad idea making 3 different story into one whole show with too much time-skip.

ya mention lack of characters develop give some were being fillers, cannon fodder, extra, living props, etc.

besides it like make it into 3 season series story into one whole bomb to watch.

overall i don't if anything that can salvage what left of look like failed experiment?

yea better call in SAVE_US GS ERA.
