Synopsis

In the year 153 of the Universal Century, the tyrannical Zanscare Empire has taken hostile control over Side 2, a space colony outside of Earth's orbit. Following in the footsteps of the long expired Principality of Zeon and the more recent Crossbone Vanguard, Zanscare rules over its subjects with cruelty, routinely using a large guillotine for public executions.

Living in Central Europe, space immigrant Üso Ewin joins the League Militaire, a militia made up of civilians frustrated with the Earth Federation's inability to combat the Zanscare Empire. Üso's latent abilities as a psychic Newtype awaken and allow him to pilot the Victory Gundam, the only mobile suit capable of holding off the elite BESPA forces of the Zanscare Empire.

Hoping to protect his best friend Shakti Kareen and locate his parents within the ranks of the Federation, Üso fights on with the Victory, striving to bring an end to the empire's reign.

Story: Without a doubt, V Gundam is the saddest Gundam story to date. And before anything else is said, I think it's worth a mention to say that a lot of people die, and most of the time for no good reason at all. That aside, I have to say I really loved the storyline. However, some of the story arcs in the middle could have been left out, and the story would still be intact; a lot of the time during said arcs I found myself wondering why the characters were doing what they were doing. There's not a lot of narrative glue to ...

Mixed Feelings
Victory Gundam is known to be extremely depressing and for good reason, Tomino, the creator of the Gundam Franchise was depressed at the time because Sunrise was merging with Bandai and this is personally his most hated series and even said 'You are a fool for watching this' But as a Gundam fan I felt it was my duty to watch this and I can see why he hates it so much.

While Victory is a 'kill em all' series, a lot of it was rather unpleasant to watch as there were a lot of deaths that were a little extreme like beheading, vaporized by ...

Man this was a slog. So many problems but I'm too tired to go into it all. Scattered observations to follow:

- The Music is legitimately good, and the cast is doing their best with a really bad script.
- People talk about how brutal the deaths are in this show but they really aren't. Like, there's nothing visceral in most of the deaths in this show (except maybe three or four, and most of those are confusing in just how much more violent they are that it doesn't work, it just shocks), and almost every death is telegraphed to shit and played up ...
