The Forgotten Gundam
5 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a franchise made famous by flashy attention grabbers like Gundam Wing and SEED, as well as the original series, Gundam X stands in the shadows of these greater successes. As with Wing and G Gundam, this show takes place in one of the alternative continuities, specifically the After War era, in which war between Earth and the Colonies has nearly wiped out the human race.

Notably, Gundam X generally avoids the typical conflict between the Earth and the colonies and casts it in a new light when it does come up. Instead the show focuses on Vultures, roving bands of scavengers of varying moral integrity, and a young boy Garrod Ran who joins a Vulture ship. It also provides some intriguing answers concerning the question of Newtypes and where they truly come from.

Unfortunately, the series faced premature cancellation at only 39 episodes, forcing something of a rushed ending. This has no doubt contributed to its unfortunate reputation.
