One of The Greatest...
This was one of the first anime's I ever saw...I remember staying up late to watch it unedited on Cartoon Network.

The story follows Heero Yuy, a young asassin trained to pilot a Gundam Mobile Suit. Him and his team of other Gundam pilots, Duo, Trowa, Quatre, and Chang, against the corrupt and oppressive Earth-Sphere alliance.

The Earth Sphere alliance is lead by Treize Kushrenada and the mysterious Zechs Marquise, who wears a mask almost constantly.

However, the story quickly unfolds into much larger implications.

This is a great anime and in my opinion the best in the saga. The anime has extremely well developed characters with several problems and inner demons. The plot is also great. The animation is smart and the dialog witty.



There are really only a things I didn't like about this show, one was that it didn't really tread much new ground since its predecessors.

I give it an 8/10.

Quotes

Zechs Merquise: Earth and space... the two exist together and form a pattern of confrontation. My name is Milliardo Peacecraft, I declare that we will eliminate the Earth the force that conflicts with space


Goofs

When Sally Po is introduced, she talks in a high-pitched, almost little girl-like voice. In later episodes, her voice is far more gruff.


Alternate Versions

The version that Cartoon Network shows on its Toonami afternoon segment contains some cuts and changes from the original dub. Enumerated as follows:

  • Most of the blood is removed.
  • "Damn" changed to "darn"/"curse"/"blast"; direct references to "kill" changed to "destroy"/"stop"; "hell" removed (changed variously to "darkness", or "heck").
  • Duo's self referencing as the "God of Death" is changed to the "Great Destroyer".
  • Episode 7 "Scenario for Bloodshed": When General Septem is shot in mid-air, the bullet going through him is not shown.
  • Episode 12 "Bewildered Warriors": When Trowa says he wishes he were more like Heero, he responds regarding the self-destruction of Wing Gundam, "It hurts like hell." This is changed into "It hurts really bad."
  • Episode 17 "Betrayed By Home, Far Away": During an interrogation, Lady Une exasperatedly points a gun at Professor G's head and questions him; this scene is cut.
  • Episode 23 "Duo, God of Death Once Again": Duo says "What B.S.!" when he sees an OZ representative on TV; "B.S." is removed. Also, an interrogation scene where Hilde questions Duo while pointing a gun at him is edited.
  • Episode 25 "Quatre vs. Heero": When Lady Une is shot, the bullet is not shown going through her.
  • Episode 48 "Take-Off Into Confusion": During a swordfighting match, Dorothy runs her fencing foil through Quatre; this is not shown in the cut version. It is made to appear as though Dorothy just scraped him.
