Just some random things about Azadistan since it got brought up, mainly from the Kuroda-approved novels:

- Marina is mainly a symbolic leader even if she is technically the head of state. Basically the Parliament was divided so much that they agreed to revive the monarchy in hopes that can minimize the disputes like some sort of third party mediator (which didn’t work I guess).

- Marina was just a normal girl who loves to sing but was chosen because she is the latest generation of the ancient royal bloodline.

- Azadistan’s Parliment is divided into two sides, each side representing different sects of a particular religion. My guess is that the Conservatives and Reformists seen from the anime are also these sides.

Just got through the series and the movie. Excellent, very much excellent. I was pretty happy at the contradictions of Celestial Beings being handled pretty maturely.

"We start war to end war."
"That's a hypocritical!"
"We know, nothing else in history has worked."
"You're a bunch of killers making things worse!"
"We know, we don't reject responsibility for it."

Also for all the rampant whining about aliens, I thought they were woven throughout the story quite well. They weren't damn rubber forehead aliens which is my biggest pet peeve in most sci-fi series. They were actually pretty terrifying. Gundam 00 does fairly well as harder sci-fi than most.

Graham Aker is probably the best Char clone in existence, probably more so IMO than the man himself. His Sol Braves team got the biggest hero moment in the movie for my money.

For favorite MCs it would go Lockon - Hallelujah tied for first, Setsuna, Tierra.

Ali Al Saachez is a magnificent son of a bitch. Gonna miss that warmonger.

As far as 00 goes, all I know that's new is the new Gundam Throne, the GNW-004 Gundam Throne Vier, the repaired and upgraded successor of the Gundam Throne Zwei. Part of that stage play.

That thing looks like its the midquel to Zwei and Arche. It has Arche’s colors and some parts while also being Zwei.
