The remnants of the old government have reorganized to form the vicious New United Nations Earth. The new government seeks complete control of the planet, in order to reignite the war against the Space Revolutionary Army. One side sees Newtypes as the future of humanity, while the other sees them as weapons threatening its very existence – and with the Frost Brothers manipulating the situation, the fighting is quickly spiraling out of control. Hoping to stop the war before it starts, Garrod, Tiffa, and the crew of the Freeden continue their search for Newtypes. If they bring enough Newtypes together, will they find a path to peace?

Ratings & Reviews
Great Premise, fun series, mixed-bag ending
by DANIEL -
Gundam X is perhaps the best thing to come out of the early batch of 90’s “Alternate Universe” Gundam shows, like Wing and G.
Good art and animation for the time, a clever and fun protagonist, and a great premise - a “what if” scenario where the One Year War of the original Gundam made the earth a wasteland roamed by mercenary gangs piloting mobile suits.
This new blu-ray release is far better than the DVD version. The DVD masters have always felt a bit rough. This is a huge step-up.
The only real knock I’d give the second set is due to the show’s troubled history - due to poor time slot performance, Gundam X’s original airing was cancelled at only 39 episodes instead of a planned 50. They manage to wrap up dangling plot threads and salvage an okay ending, but it does mean that the latter half of the show (the entire space arc) is rushed and ends abruptly. It’s still a great series and well worth owning, but keep that in mind as you pass the halfway mark.
