In the war between the Earth Federation and Zeon, a young and inexperienced crew find themselves on a new spaceship. Their best hope of making it through the conflict is the Gundam, a giant humanoid robot, and its gifted teenage pilot.
Roger Smith acts as a negotiator in a city where everyone has lost their memories and keep it that way. When he isn't helping hostage situations, he's saving the day in a giant robot known as Big O. Although Roger has no idea why the "megadeus" (Big O) responds to his commands or why his butler seems to be a master at fixing the high tech machine, he starts to question the forgotten past after the events started by an unsual case involving an android called R Dorothy. While he and Dorothy begin a Henry Higgins/Eliza Dolittle style of friendship, villains and mysterious characters enter with clues leading up to something that may bring out an emotion Roger has tried to fight all of his known life - fear.

During the closing credits at the end of the first episode, Roger is shown sitting alone on a large hourglass. After R. Dorothy joins his household, subsequent episodes show them sitting together. See more »
This show just seemed to try to hard to make the story surprising.
I liked this show for the most part, the main problem I had with it are the strange ending episodes of both the first and second season as it were. I was disappointed with the way the first season ended or the series wrapped up as a whole. I think the show was supposed to have ended after the first season, but Americans wanted more so it came back and was interesting again until it neared the end and once again it got a bit to muddled for my tastes. The show had it all though, James Bond kind of action and espionage and giant robots duking it out. Though most shows had a pattern of some sort of little mission for the main character Roger and then some super robot would come and he would summon his own little robot Big O and they would of course clash. Granted it does seem repetitive written here, however it played out very well and there were certainly some interesting story arcs going on. I was so interested to see how it all wrapped up, but it in the end did not work as I just thought Dorthy was not involved enough and Angel became this super important character out of nowhere. Still it looked good and for the most part most of the other episodes was very entertaining, just did not care for the cause of the strange city known as amnesia.
