An anime that seems controversial amongst Gundam fans.
It deviates from the usual war type shows within the Gundam saga. this show instead, focuses on more of a martial arts-type tournament taking place in the year FC 60.
The Gundams in this show, rather than being controlled in a cockpit like that of a plane, where the pilot is seated, the fighter uses a mobile trace suit to have the gundam mimic its motions.
This show also is a little bit more like stereotypical anime with the sweatdrops and anime falls that I have failed to see in other gundam shows.
However it continues to have the wide diversity of characters. Whether its good or not? I'll leave that up to you
G Gundam was the predecesor of Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED and any other Alternative Universe Gundam Shows.
In the Year FC 60, much of mankind inhabits space colonies which orbit the Earth. Dominance over the colonies is decided once every four years by a large tournament in which each nation sends a single representative to fight the others with a giant robot called a Gundam. Domon Kashuu is selected to represent Neo-Japan in one of these tournaments, but he fights less to ensure his nation's victory than to find his brother, who has been blamed for the deaths of Domon's parents and the disappearance of a very dangerous weapon, the Dark Gundam or Devil Gundam.
G Gundam was shown in the U.S. on Toonami in 2002. There are a total of 49 episodes.
