About Gundam Reconguista in G Blu-ray

The new era begins!

The turbulent era known as the Universal Century has ended. Now, mankind looks towards prosperity and peace in the new era known as the Regild Century (R.C.). One of the most important resources in this era is the Capital Tower - a space elevator which towers over the land connecting Earth to space. Its purpose, to transport the Photon Batteries the Earth relies on for power. It is worshiped as a holy place.

Tasked with protecting the tower, one day on a practice mission, young Capital Guard cadet, Bellri Zenam is attacked by a high-performance G-Self Mobile Suit. Despite having never before encountered the G-Self, he feels a strange connection to it and its pilot, a space pirate called Aida Surugan.

Little does Bellri know that he is about to uncover truths which will shake the entire Regild Century.

A flawed but enjoyable ride

by -

While the story is derided for being hard to understand. I felt it was really enjoyable with a cast of colorful and fun characters. This story easily has the best production values in a gundam show since OO. My only gripe can be it's obvious this needed more episodes so the pacing ends up being is pretty rough near the end but overall I loved it for what it was and is worth the watch if you are a fan of tomino gundam.

Joy Through the Confusion

by

G Reco was an amazing experience and I greatly enjoyed it for what it was.

Brought to us by Tomino, this show is on the wackier side similar to Double Zeta, Turn A and King Gainer. So do not expect to witness a dark narrative similar to Zeta Gundam or Ideon. His writing has changed throughout the years, These days leaning towards more joy rather than sadness.

It is recommended to go into this show with an open mind and to possibly be attentive to detail. Its faults lie within pacing, it can lose you if you turn away. But do note that it all does make sense as far as unrealistic giant robot shows can go.

The animation is a breath of fresh air, as its style is in such a way to make it seem older, but still putting great detail on backgrounds and particle effects. As for the story, there is a lot going on and much of it can reflect real world events.

Reality is hectic and people act weird

Honestly, just go in for a fun time

Joyful but ridiculous for the wrong reasons

by

I am happy that Tomino's writing has gotten much brighter and joyful in the past few decades, I really enjoy that more than the dark stuff.

Unfortunately for me, what was meant to be serious in this series was more often ridiculous in the non-funny way. I had trouble relating or sympathizing with the characters.

At least the animation is fantastic.

New Gundam with something different

by -

It was good something different.

Ok

by

I bought this hoping it would be good as it got great reviews on Amazon and pretty good reviews on Rightstuf. Well, I gave up after episode 18 and don't know if I'm going back. Confusing and somewhat weak storyline didn't help and the motivations behind some of these characters was extremely weak, which only made things worse. Sadly, I really wanted to like this series but it's just not that good.

Don't watch as your first Gundam

by -

While this is far from the best Gundam series it is enjoyable but dose require the viewer to piece together some parts of the story. The series was cut down from 50 episodes down to 26 so a lot of the story feels flat and felling like the writers forgot to explain whats going on as a result. part of the back story can be pieced together with previous knowledge of the Gundam UC time line but is never directly mentioned or confirmed other then a scene that other wise could just be considered an easter egg. The rest of the story just feels rushed and making you wonder how factions at war seem to be intermingling a lot and people changing sides with what seems like no reason. over all the visuals are good the voice acting doesn't seem out of place and it is a fun adventure even if it is not well executed and doesn't end in any memorable way.

Visual Excellence with Horrible Writing

by -

This isn't the worst Gundam show I've seen, but it's close. The animation, art design, and sound are all excellent. It has very high production values, with great looking mecha and a well designed and diverse cast. However, good luck comprehending why any character does anything, why 1/2 the battles that occur even happen, and finding a character who has more motivation for their actions than a few words. I watched this with a couple friends, and every episode each of us had at least 2 or 3 questions as to why something was occurring, and often none of us could figure it out, even if we went back to try to find a reason for it. The plot is a mess, the character development is paper thin outside the two leads , Bellri and Aida, and overall that leads to a fun visual spectacle with no depth and no comprehensible story.

Don't hate on Tomino too much

by -

I bought the BluRay after having already seen the entire show. Like every other Gundam fan, I agree with the convoluted story preventing me from enjoying it 100%, but the gorgeous art and animation, as well as the drastically different style (compared to the other Gundam shows) were enough to make me appreciate and own it.
