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.
