by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison October 20, 2010
Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer is the first and last sequel to a television series that arguably didn’t need one.

Most of the audience seemed to be made up of animation students (you can tell because half of them had out sketch pads drawing Aisling in various poses), and there was someone going around giving out Aisling temporary tattoos to every member […]
