My Review

Spoiler for deaths:

Also, for some reason I can't find the thread for Mobile Suit Gundam F91 (Hate it that much do you?) so I'll just post my review of it here:

I hate to say this, but some of the deaths in Victory Gundam felt like a peculiar sort of demented sexual fantasy.

The most infamous of that not being the Shrike Team, but the anti-MS Neneka-corps, which had been parodied to death many years back. Yeah, really nice touch. So Tomino-depression means graphic death to scandedly clad women... or women in general... I wonder what happens when he gets high...

Other than that, characters were often introduced for the sake of being killed off, which makes you wonder why they were introduced in the first place.

Anyway, some liked it, some didn't. Nonetheless, the entire show just didn't sit well with me, and I don't like Victory serving as the end-era UC.

Victory was the best in the series and the best gundam overall.

Felt like there was an actual war going on,the characters were great,uso was the best main character since amuro,great battles,realistic and shocking deaths,realistic.Plus it had a strong story line.

Better then zeta by some bit.

And even then, the scale of Victory Gundam was STILL small compared to the One Year War, lol. (Big and/or important battles took place at almost every major Federation/Zeon base/stronghold all over Earth and Space during that time.)

Pretty much every conflict/war since then was more or less an "isolated incident" more so than a grand scale war and only involved a small portion of the Federation overall; usually those situated in the immediate area(s), those specifically tasked to deal with the threat at hand, and/or those who actually CHOOSE to help like those in Char's Counterattack, Victory Gundam, and such.

While his voice didn't bother me, I found Cronicle to be a disappointing character. He was just there, not really swaying my feelings on him one way or another.

I can't remember the quote exactly but I think Maria summed him up perfectly when he said he had a "weak heart".

His death was also rather weird.

You mean when he flies out of his cockpit and wangs his hand against the Angel Halo with a loud and hilarious thud? Yeah that was kind of amusing.

It was. Definitely one of the strangest and funniest deaths in any series in my opinion.

Just finished watching this a couple weeks back and I have to say it was depressing.

Although this series has some of the weirdest fanservice I've seen in any Gundam. Uso is the classiest Gundam character ever he gets all the chicks all over him, he has a shower with an enemy woman and bites her boob, then while in the Gundam's cockpit he is in a weird position with his dog NAKED, Elischa and Warren's lover can't think of her name see his trouser monkey, and he sleeps with his Mom while she is in her bra and panties. I think Uso has gotten Makoto beat as the worlds greatest pimp.

Spoiler for about Odelo and Katejina:


Overall I really enjoyed this series 8/10

Now I'm finishing up Wing since AGE is over. =D

Yes, Uso is alive in the end. Amuro is dead.

I may be wrong about this but I believe the shrike team is actually hyperbole. It was supposed to be a strong statement about how women were being depicted in other series of the time. Killing them off was the idea that anime needed to drop the scantily clad fighting woman altogether. I read about this a long time ago though so I could be getting this wrong. Can any other gundam veterans around here chime in?

I think there’s no way to confirm whether what you said is right or wrong. As we all know, Tomino was pretty depressed when he made Victory, so killing Shrike Team as Tomino’s statement/reaction to how he feels about female pilots in mecha genre might also be possible. In addition, the episode where a bunch of female soldiers wearing nothing but bikinis fighting Victory Gundam only to seduce the pilot inside it can also be considered his statement regarding how ridiculous girls in sexy-looking suits in mecha anime is. Still, the main question to that theory is: are girls in sexy-looking getup in mecha series already that common when Victory was airing?

Well, when you consider what was left of the Jupiter Empire was involved, and men from Jupiter having an obsession with women (displayed as early as Paptimus Scirocco in Zeta Gundam), it's not surprising that there seemed to be a similar thing, at least with Zanscare.

I could also say it could just be as simple as Katejina underestimating Uso in thinking he was just a little boy who would be far too preoccupied with the female body like, let's face it, a lot of 13 year old boys would start to be at least. Unfortunately, having gone through the Zanscare War and being forced to grow up quickly as he did, Uso didn't fall for such tactics and, instead, was all, "Wtf is this?".

Watching Victory Gundam means you have to endure Shakti. She is somewhat annoying, but if you can survive Star Wars's Jar Jar Binks, Shakti is a piece of cake. And yes, she will change in a way (not a lot) after a certain plot-point that I won't spoil it to you .

My advice: don't focus your attention on Shakti before the plot required you to do so. Instead, you should focus on the battles, the deaths, and other WTF-events that happen in the show . Just treat it like Syfy's B movies, and I think you'll be entertained .

You have to endure Shaki and Uso's constant yelling in battle, but hey if you can get through Shinn's constant battle cries in Seed Destiny, you're golden.
