Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer (2010)
劇場版 機動戦士ガンダム00

Gundam 00 Movie

it has been 2 years after Celestial Being's final battle. the world now faced a new crisis when an exploration ship that was abandoned 130 years go was found approaching Earth. they realize there were something fishy with the ship, the Gunda Meisters were again gathered to save humanity from these unknown enemies, which were many times more powerful than those they fought years ago. the life force that started controlling the abandoned ship was actually taken over by ELS (Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifters), which were able to shift into any shape that they came in contact with, including Gundams n Warships.

ever since its trailer was being released, the movie was aired in Japan's cinema in 2010, unfortunately not available to the rest of the world. in 2011, the movie was finally widely distributed around the globe, n we had the chance to catch it. the movie was a sequel to its 2 series, Season 1 n Season 2. it was again, directed by the same awesome director from all Gundam 00 series, Seiji Mizushima. he wasn't afraid to push the anime to their limit, n by killing a main character in Season 1 gave us such a shock! him continuing to kill another main character in Season 2 was equally surprising; n now for the movie, he even went as far as destroying all possible machines n professionals, limiting the chance of a forth sequel. despite the violence, we had as much fun with the movie as we did with the series, for it was so much more believing n less godly compare to the previous attempts on Gundam, such as Gundam Seed (2002) n Gundam Seed Destiny (2002).

  1. Gundam is always a favourite. :)

  2. Wow....shape shifter? It is the hardest to battle against a shape shifter...because it might be you. :p

  3. Ooooo...this sounds amazingly intriguing!

    I've always wanted to be able to shape shift!

    When I was a kid, I imagined myself shifting into a tiger.

    My favorite animal!

  4. lina:
    you're definitely right about that!

    haha not the color though, whatever they shifted into, they are all just silver-ish.

    tell me about it! i love tiger too! in fact, all the cats family are my favorites. i used to only imagine werewolves, since i didn't know any other was even possible!

  5. I am quite pleased to see you enjoyed the images from my website!
