"Gundam AGE Limited Edition Blu-ray Volume 1": This Is the AGE of 'Are These Prices Serious?'

by Grant Whiteon March 26, 2012
It’s become the tradition now for new Gundam series to appear roughly every two to three years. In contrast to the high turnover rate of the 90s, this gives fans a bit of breathing space between the big pushes. The previous series, Gundam 00, acquitted itself well, but seemingly failed to become a long term […]

"Gundam Unicorn" Volumes 2 and 3: Brilliance Undimmed

by Todd DuBoison May 16, 2011
The first episode of Gundam Unicorn (a.k.a. Gundam UC) was an outstanding accomplishment; it was a reintroduction to the long-lived Gundam franchise capable of both engaging new viewers and pleasing long-time fans with its incisive narrative and first-rate production values that are more than worthy of an animated feature film. With The Second Coming of […]

"Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer" A Stunning, Audacious Finale

by Todd 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. To be sure, it ended in a manner that left fans with questions to speculate over, but it also concluded the story built up over the series’ fifty episodes. Lead protagonist […]

by Lelouchon October 12, 2010
On the final day of NYAF 2010 the long awaited Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer premiered with English subtitles just a mere month after the Japanese release. For Gundam fans this was quite the treat and judging from the line that formed, probably the most anticipated movie premiere during NYAF. […]

Otakon2010: Of Unicorns and Gundam Unicorn

by Todd DuBoison August 3, 2010
Although final days at conventions are only half days and can be less substantial than the first two days in my experience, my Sunday at Otakon 2010 was fully occupied by two satisfying events. Longtime readers may recall the tribute I paid to what I consider one of the finest Rankin-Bass productions and a marvelous […]

"Gundam Unicorn Volume 1" Is Expensive But Outstanding

by Todd DuBoison April 2, 2010
This is not the review I expected to write. When the the six-part OVA Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (a.k.a. Gundam UC) was first announced in 2009 as the flagship commemoration of the long-running Gundam franchise’s 30th anniversary, I was hoping for a high-quality product with strong characterization and thrilling giant robot action, but I was […]
