Ah, Zeta Gundam. After spending my first time watching it tearing it apart for all its flaws, in hindsight I kinda want to watch it again, so here I am. Also, it's my first time ever liveblogging anything, so please keep in mind that I may occasionally screw up or have strong opinions about a specific subject.
For those of you who know absolutely nothing about it, here's the gist of things: Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
is the sequel to the highly influential anime Mobile Suit Gundam
. The original Gundam (also known as "the first Gundam" or "0079 Gundam") was revolutionary, so much that it created its own genre
. Although it was cancelled about halfway into the series and many things in the original script had to be revised, it had a great ending, and it became a big hit on reruns. The whole story can be found detailed in Gundam Sousei
. However, I am not here to liveblog the original. I'm here to watch, tear apart and overall enjoy the sequel.
Let's dig in!
