In Universal Century 0088, the Anti-Earth Union Group (AEUG) has emerged victorious in its war with the Earth Federation's Titans at the cost of devastating losses. Neo-Zeon, the third faction in the war formerly known as Axis Zeon, remains as powerful as ever. Led by Newtype Haman Karn, Neo-Zeon has been implementing plans to take over both Earth and the space colonies.

The AEUG flagship Argama heads to the Side 1 colony Shangri-La for repairs. Living in the colony is Judau Ashta, a 14-year-old junk dealer who is struggling to make enough money to put his younger sister through school. Upon the discovery of an escape pod containing a former Titans pilot, Judau and his friends are quickly led to the Argama in hopes of stealing a mobile suit which they can sell for a fortune. However, with the arrival of a Neo-Zeon ship seeking to defeat the Argama, Judau and his friends are dragged into to a conflict that will bring them across space and Earth.

Saying I was left aghast after the ending of Zeta is an understatement. I thought what a tragic, and non-glamorous way to depict war. Murdering the innocent, using the lives of family as blackmail, backstabbing, making brash decisions in the heat of the moment. It was like watching a car crash in front of you, and you just couldn’t turn the other cheek. Zeta was unpredictable, heartbreaking, and over before you knew it. I still hold my initial viewing in very high regard. Once I had reached the end of the final episode, I was crushed. Knowing that Kamille was left in a vegetative state, ...

Mixed Feelings
ZZ gundam is a sequel/spinoff of zeta gundam. Originally it was supposed to resolve Kamille, Haman, and the Char/Amuro conflict. Midway through production CCA was greenlit and the plot was restructured, the result is a generally disconcerted and unfocussed narrative with some high-highs and terrible lows. The SoL is not executed masterfully but watching the Gundam team slowly (SLOWLY) mature and come together is nice. If you are a gundam fan you will probably be fine with this. Honestly what happens is inconsequential and you could honestly skip this and go right to Char's Counterattack. Fa deserved better, Kamille deserved better, Haman deserved better, and ...

Oh boy. Mobile Suit Gundam Double Zeta is the title hot off the press after the acclaimed Zeta Gundam. I already knew that people had a large disdain for this series. Now I LOVE Gundam... but I'm going to make the case here that unless you strive to be a completionist like myself you should not waste your time watching a series this abysmal.


This is by far the weakest link within ZZ. If you didn't know, the first half of this show doesn't mean anything important in the UC timeline. You could skip it if you really wanted to. Now of course you wouldn't get ...
