My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this on Toonami.

This anime started in a way that made you feel that you had missed part of it so there was a bit of a struggle throughout it to try to make sense of all the factions and politics et cetera that were never explained well enough.

This was better than Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (well what I saw of it at least because I gave up on it) but not better than Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, and it ended quicker than I thought that it would.

The end,
