Well I’ll be damned…

Here is another blast from the past but one which I can’t believe that I’ve just finished watching. Not really being a fan of Gundams (though I remember that it used to be one of my childhood dreams to be piloting one thanks to Gundam Wing corrupting me during the black hole of my life when I didn’t even know what anime was), I took a look at this series out of impulse and…damn…it makes me realise that I should do things like this more often.

G Gundam

Mobile Fighter G Gundam (機動武闘伝Gガンダム, Kidō Butōden Jī Gandamu?, “Mobile Fighting Legend G Gundam”) is a Japanese animated television series directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa (Giant Robo, Getter Robo Armageddon). Created to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the franchise in 1994,[1] it is the first of three Gundam series set in an alternate continuity from the original “Universal Century”. The 49 episodes of the series aired on TV Asahi from April 1, 1994 to March 31, 1995. An English language version aired on the American Cartoon Network from August 5, 2002 to October 16 of the same year.

The show takes place in “Future Century”, in which a fighting tournament is held every four years between the space colonies. Each country sends a representative Gundam Fighter to fight on Earth until one is left, and the winning nation earns the right to govern over the colonies for the next four years. G Gundam follows Neo-Japan’s representative Domon Kasshu in year 60 of that century, during the 13th Gundam Fight. He is in the fight both to win and to track down his brother, who had stolen a mysterious Gundam—the Devil Gundam (Dark Gundam in the American version)—from the Neo-Japan government.

The series takes a wildly different turn from the rest of the franchise. It has a number of shōnen elements: the main cast behaves differently,[clarification needed] and characters gain superhuman speed and strength through mere martial arts training. Though most of its Gundams feature super robot elements, such as heroic designs and voice activated special attacks, others still behave like real robots

n F.C. 60, the 13th Gundam Fight begins. Domon Kasshu pilots the Shining Gundam as the representative of Neo-Japan, the Japanese space colony. Along with his crew member Rain Mikamura, he battles the other countries’ representatives in order to earn the right to rule Earth and the colonies for four years for Neo-Japan. However, Domon seems to be more concerned with finding his brother and the stolen Devil Gundam.
