I always felt lockon and setsuna were the most skilled. Tieria freezes up and gets caught too many times. Setsuna always managed to pull up the upset that no one expects. Lockon has always managed to stay on top with the exception of when he had his injury, which was caused by Tieria's freezing.

I feel the same too.I like a scene when Lockon face Graham Aker ,where he block Graham attack with beam saber then switch to beam pistol.That was flawless and Setsuna fight scene with the golden ms make me watch it over & over again.

I think Setsuna, Lockon and Allelujah/Hallelujah merged are pretty close in term of skill, they all managed to pull off quite impressive moves sometimes (Setsuna in the final episode, Lockon when fighting Ali, and Doublelujah against Soman and Sergei).

I'm certain that Tieria is the weakest. His style is just stand there and blasts things. I guess piloting a heavy armed MS will make you lazy

Do you think Soma is a better pilot than Sergei?

It is up to the pilot skill or prowess and experience .For example Graham Aker with his Flag vs Exia,he totally rely on his skill and expirience.

IMO, all of the Meister's managed to put a decent fight against the Earth forces, so I think that they all are on the same level of skill.

Setsuna managed to beat Alejandro's MA & MS, and then tied with the Unions ace, Graham. Having survived 3 finale bosses, Setsuna proved himself.

Lockon managed to destroy a couple of GNX's and take down 2 battle ships down & fought with Ali on equal ground, with one eye. That being said, he went completely ballistic while fighting him to the point where he didn't activate the TRANS-AM, which would have granted death for Ali. Had he not allowed his emotions to control him, he might have been able to stay alive.

Allelujah being a natural born Super-soldier, and he managed to fight off the Russian Bear and our young Panda at the same time. Although, he got too cocky and forgot about Sergei and that lead to his defeat.

Now Tieria never had to fight much due to Virtue's nature, but he did managed to defeat 6 GNX's in a row with Nadleeh, which is more than any of the other Meister's managed to pull (as in the number of GNX they destroyed in one go). Tieria is good at close combat; he just seems to be better at (or prefers) long range combat.

That's the nature of the beast with piloting Virtue, so don't discredit Tieria to whoever said he wasn't that good of a pilot.

It takes skill to pilot it, especially since its slow as hell, and after the initial WTF factor of its rifle shots, if you are halfway competent they are fairly easy to dodge.

It's not like he can do much else, but sit there and spam Virtue's powerful attacks. His main role really wasn't even heavy artillery, but to be a watchdog and make sure none of the other Gundam pilots thought of betraying Celestial Being.

Not even necessarily betray Celestial Being, but to make sure the Gundams didn't fall in anybody else's hands, but Celestial Beings.

I agree, Tieria is a kind of watchdog for CB.He help Setsuna take on the Trinity sibling although he don't like Setsuna. I think he can't afford to let CB gundam get destroyed or maybe he sees Trinity a threat to his mission.

He's even utilize some formation with Setsuna during that fight which suprise his teammember.

That means the relation they have isn't as bad as both of them think, yet rather deciding on their justification.

You mean Gundam 00 specifically? IMO, yes it is. It incorporates a lot of real world issue we see today and pull them together into an interesting plot line. The beginning of the series starts out a bit slowly, and world politics might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's good. But again, that's just a personal opinion.

Animation 10/10: Amazing in HD, the gundams have an aesthetic appeal to me that I havent seen in any other gundam series. Obviously as technology advances we are going to see crisper images and better designs, gundam00 is no exception. The character designs are awesome. I loved how all the meisters were cookie cutter bishou-nens, they are eye candy to look at. There were a few moments when animations took a sudden dive but this show has never reused stock-images from what I can recall. I can't complain in this department the show is just bliss to the eyes and raises the bar for other anime.

Voice Actors 10/10: The voice actors bring personality to the table. They make the anime believeable to me by bringing passion to their job and a level of professionalism. Particularly the voices of the 4 meisters are memorable and even after the 2nd series is over I will still remember what the meisters sound like.

Characters 10/10: I have to say the relationship between the 4 meisters is what made me love this series so much. They are all unique and don't get along. At the beginning they pretty much stick to their own business but slowly come together. They all have really compelling backstories that are believeable and relevant to our lives today. Particularly Setsuna and his many traumatic experiences and Atheism set the tone of the story and atmosphere straight from the start. Some characters like Alleluja were a complete mess and I wished they worked on him better. Lock-on seemed to be the most liked with his flambouyant personality, a lot of people liked him, he was the glue that held the meisters together. Tieria was probably the best supporting character in the meister and I liked him the most.

Plotting 10/10: I'm guessing this plot is as REAL as realistic can get in the gundam-verse. It isn't perfect but it's making a real effort here to appeal to our sensibilities. To watch film or anime you have to suspend belief to enjoy it. Gundam 00 does a great job at creating a plot and world that I can watch without being bothered by inconsistancies or over-the-top incidents. The plot itself is a bit strange when you think about it but at least it is damn consistant. Sure there are some moments in the series that may have been a bit sloppy but really, what anime doesn't fuck up at least in a few instances? When I compare most anime to Gundam00 they dont even hold a candle to it. I can tell watching this that it took at least a year or two to get a script together and it shows. I'm going to walk into season 2 with a positive outlook and not be dismayed by how Code Geass R2 went.

Music 9/10: Great OP/ED song choices to go along with spectacular visials. Some BGM's were somewhat annoying but overall had many memorable ones.


Some sticking points:

-saji & louise

My goodness these 2 almost ruined this series for me. Just boring as hell and seem to retard the pacing of the show. I was so glad when Neena trashed the wedding party. Season 2 will now be a lot more bearable. I understand why these 2 civilians were included in the show, but I still feel they spent too much time for them. Spending 4~5 minutes playing Louise & Saji flashbacks with karoake just doesnt cut it for me. I eagerly await to see the *hopefully* war torn and transformed saji and louise in S2.

-technology

I'm hoping gundam00 will refrain from introducing more science fiction than I can believe. It seems as the story progresses more and more new science is introduced which took away from the reality of the series. They can give you mechanical limbs and body parts and heal amputated hands as well? They are stretching the science a bit too far sometimes. I'm hoping for some vague explanation behind the GN drive in S2. Hopefully they will give us something as CGR2 never gave us on the nature of geass, codes or even CC's name. I have more faith in Gundam00 than CG though so we will have to see.

I somehow find that the inclusion of Saji and Louise plot is to give the audience how the war can affect plain civilians and their resolution after that.
