>>12900478>It is good, the first part is a bit boring and political but then it slams you and gets amazing
Actually, it was the initial focus on politics that made the show a lot more interesting than the average mecha series. I agree that it was a bit dry, but that's not because they introduced a more complex and realistic universe this time, but because they failed to present the underlying coherences and what influences them in an interesting manner.
While the trinity-family was a pretty cheap plot device to make the gundam pilots abandon their animosities towards each other, it worked and it made the show more interesting.
The final episodes were horrible, though.They turned the interesting premise with rival, but still somewhat democratic factions, into a generic gundam scenario. After it took them more than half of the show to get absolutely nowhere, stuck within global politics, earth super powers now effortlessly manage to unite within few episodes? And why didn't anyone care about where their weaponry came from and what that batshit insane UN ambassador with that golden mecha-tank monstrosity was doing between their lines?
It wasn't bad, but it could've been a lot better.
