Gundam ZZ on Bluray!
by Rib -
If you enjoyed the first part of Gundam ZZ, the second part is where its at! This is where the series really picks up. The action, story, death, other things that happen but wont say due to spoilers and not wanting to be "that guy." Im one of those rare people that do enjoy the series. And if you really want to experience Tominos full story leading up to Chars Counter Attack, you kinda need to... (oh, btw theres something in this series that is totally in Gundam Unicorn) but anyways...
The transfer to Bluray is great, for something that was done in the 80s to look this good, I'm impressed.
My only gripe, which is really small, is that its not in English. And the only reason I care, is because I watch the original series and Zeta for so long in English, its hard to not hear the crew of the AEUG with their English cast. Normally I dont care.
Playtime is over.
Double Zeta takes it's turn towards the more serious, as the Neo Zeon under Haman Karn, begin the route of Planet Earth. All that stands between her are the Gundam Team of the AEUG. Love will be lost and sacrifice will be made in the grand Tomino tradition, as the last part of the original Gundam trilogy, goes out in high style. Highlights are the sickening evil of Rakan Dakaran (truly an evil Gundam character if there was one), the brave and honorable men of the African Freedom Front Blue Team, numerous dessert battles, and the absolute back to back masterpiece episodes of 35 and 36. These two episodes will form one of the finest hours of animated television you will ever see, gut punch dramatic and visually stunning. All leading to the Neo Zeon Civil War and the final showdown between two of the most powerful New Types ever. Classic television, not to be missed.
People say that the second half is amazing, but I actually enjoyed the whole series rather than one portion. In comparison, however, I did enjoy the second half more.
Underrated -- Enjoying it way more than expected! Blu-Ray is Great
Gundam ZZ has a reputation for being a low point in the Universal Century. At best, it's said that it's only the first half of the series that is "garbage". I honestly think a lot of people internalize this "common knowledge" without giving the series a fair shake. I know that I was like that! I approached ZZ as a thing to 'get through' on my complete watch-through of the UC.
Pretty much every full-size Gundam series takes about 8 episodes to really kick into gear, and ZZ is no exception. Up to that point, I was afraid we had a fully episodic slog ahead of us. And then they go into space, and it gets going.
I love the characters, I love the change of pace. It's a good pallet cleanser between the usual war epic Gundam series. Ironically, despite the theme song, this is the most "anime" Gundam series as of when it came out, and honestly, I'm having the most fun because of it.
Like the rest of the Gundam HD remasters, ZZ looks great on Blu Ray.
