Universal Century 0096. Several months have passed since the incident surrounding Laplace's box also known as the Universal Century Charter. The Earth Federation Forces dispatches a group of investigators to the severed Axis which is drifting outside the Earth Sphere. Two civilians participate as members of the research group: Arlette Almage and Danton Hyleg. Both have pasts with government service to the Principality of Zeon and Neo Zeon as an engineer and test pilot. Having infiltrated Axis, the investigators come under attack inside a base where no one should be. Arlette and Dalton are confronted with an incident they never imagined.

"I came here to laugh at you" - Char Aznable

Years ago I reviewed SD Gundam and called it the very worst of the Gundam franchise. I was wrong! I actually need to apologize to SD Gundam! Twilight Axis has a set a new low bar.

Twilight Axis is a 6 episode mini-series where each episode is 3 minutes. The episodes don't have time to tell a cohesive story and they don't try to! Sunrise basically just remade Chargeman Ken with Gundams! I know that Japan LOVES their Chargeman Ken memes, but this is just something else. Why would they do that to such a beloved read more

Gundam Twilight Axis is the physical manifestation of that slap Bright gave Amuro in the original 0079 series with Bright being Sunrise and Amuro being the UC Gundam fandom.
Not even my father ever hit me as hard as this piece of trash did!

OVERALL: 2/10 (barely at that)

Story: 1

Have you seen one of those ''*anime name* in 10 seconds'' videos? Apparently Sunrise has and decided to actually make their anime 10 seconds long as a joke.

I'm not laughing Sunrise. Neither does anyone that has seen it.

From what I was able to comprehend the story was about a girl that apparently is NOT a pilot but read more

I don't get it. What was even the point of this? This is supposed to take place after unicorn but I don't feel the connection. Nothing of value was added to the UC timeline and while the same can be said for shows like 0080, it at least had a story it wanted to tell. Twilight axis has nothing. It is just a collection of disjointed shots with no connection between them packed in short 3 minute packages. The closest thing to a "scene" is a fight at the final and by far the longest episode that fails to keep the viewer engaged. Sorry for read more

Pro: Well the gunpla is a fun remould job...
Con: Darn near everything else.

While we could delve into the specifics of how everything went wrong in Twilight Axis, they all ultimately come back to one point: the runtime. The director has 21 minutes to use across 6 episodes. He opted to go for a non-chronological order, of short clips of miscellaneous events. There is nothing for the viewer to grab onto here. The story is both hard to perceive and meager, the art is tightly budgeted and presumably Sunrise's inexperienced artists, I have no idea who was even in this show a few days after watching read more
