The story can be compared to Code Geass, I can see why most come to the conclusion. but this series is completely different and all original. my philosophy for anime is watch the first 5 episodes and if your not clamoring for more then you should watch it with spare time or not watch it at all.. this series is unique and deserves the 9 I gave it.
The art is stunning, absolutely perfect for the content of the series. pretty much sums it up.
The season one opening was amazing and very catchy (plz know I consider 11-12 episodes as one season). The ending was great as well. the sound design for the show was well thought out for the genre it is portraying. both season one and two endings had me humming the tunes.. overall worth the 10.
The character design in this show is nothing short of brilliant. the main character is regarded as weak in the beginning and a lot of people showed hatred to this aspect. I was surprised, that people didn't realize that as the show progressed you get to see him grow as a man in such a short time span, and also how he came to be weak in the first place. You also get too see great depth in the supporting characters and how some of them change as events happen in the series.. this deserves nothing less then a 10.
I personally like this series a great deal, its honestly one of the greatest series out this year in my opinion.. It makes me wish time would speed up so I can watch the final episodes sooner..
In the end I think this will get a 10 from me but i have to wait for the other 4 or so episodes before I can say for sure. series is good and is a definite watch if you like mecha shows.. only warning you get is this series mind$%^&s you.. so check it out.. it was definitely worth the watch for me..Enjoy!

Well, this will be my first ever review for a series.. reasons for me actually taking the time to write one, is because I believe this is a very underrated series as it's part of the Gundam franchise.. I'll break it down.
The story progress was brilliance at it's best. The show progresses throughout 100 years, and moves through three generations.. I felt this was a very interesting concept that could be explored in other Gundam series in the future. There was alot of accusations towards this series about being a children's version of a Gundam series.. This is inaccurate, as throughout the entire series it is very serious in the way it approaches the dialogue and story..
Why? because it was different then what I normally see and now in the end, it's unique.. People complain that the art is childish. the Gundam wasn't designed well,etc.. if you pay attention it develops into a very well designed Gundam; following the series as both the story and the characters evolve.
The sound design is amazing, but out of the OP or ED I have grown increasingly fond of 'My World' by SPYAIR.. the song has such a great meaning behind it, which is a perfect fit for the arc, and after this series I have become a great fan of their music and I recommend anyone who enjoys the ED to check out the rest of there music line up.
I greatly enjoy this series, because I've grown to love each of the characters.. As you move through each arc you clamor to find out what happens to each of the side characters, the previous main characters, etc.. overall the show just engulfs you until the very end.. It proves that if you stick with it, it can stand with even the best of the franchise.
This series has been a complete joy to watch and I wish it would of went farther int he story, definitely worth the watch.. if your hinging on the fence to watch or not watch, this is no SD Gundam.. and for that I am thankful.. To me this ranks with Gundam Wing and Gundam 00 , which are among my favorite series.. Go watch this already.. quoted from a comment on GA.com ep 20..
