Watch Mobile Suit Gundam 00
- 2 Seasons
Mobile Suit Gundam 00, or Kidou Senshi Gundamu Daburu 0, is the 11th edition of the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise of giant robot/mecha Japanese animations and lasted for two seasons. The series takes place on a twenty-fourth century Earth with the focus placed upon paramilitary organization Celestial Being and its efforts to bring about global peace through the use of special "mobile suits" known as Gundams. After fossil fuels have been completely depleted, society has realigned itself to utilize solar power across three blocs. These blocs consist of the North American "Union," the "Human Reform League" of Russia, China, and India, and the European "AEU" and are the source of global wars thanks to now-infinite energy to supply weapons systems with, spiraling into a 20-year period known as the Solar Wars. It is from the ashes of the Solar Wars, that the group known as Celestial Being is created. The series protagonist, Setsuna Seiei, sides with Celestial Being and pilots a Gundam alongside four other similar members, all known as Gundam Meisters. Setsuna pilots the Gundam Exia, "Lockon Stratos" pilots the Gundam Cherudim, Allelujah Haptism pilots the Gundam Xylios, Gundam Arios, and co-pilots the Gundam Harute, and Tiera Erde pilots the Gundam Virtue (high mobility form Nadleeh) as well as upgraded form Gundam Seravee (high mobility form Seraphim) and lastly Gundam Raphael. With all this impressive power in the hands on one group, the Solar Blocs join together to create the United Nations Army as a countermeasure to Celestial Being. The UNA even gains a foothold against Celestial Being thanks to Laguna Harvey, a traitor to Celestial Being whom provides them with a series of GN-X suits with power nearly as high as the Mesiter's Gundam units. In addition to the GN-X units, a second squadron of Gundam Meisters, known as Team Trinity arrives to assist Celestial Being. However, Team Trinity's methods are more blood-thirsty and confrontational compared to Celestial Being's passive and compromising practice of armed intervention.
