Mobile Suit Gundam 00 - Final Thoughts
2307 AD, the depletion of fossil forced humanity to search for a new source of power. This lead up to the the creation of a massive array of solar power power collectors orbiting the Earth. They are supported by three orbital elevators, each serving one of the three "power blocs" on the planet. With this new found source of power only the regions with the elevators benefited from the project. This resulted in a constant wars breaking out around the globe among minor countries for fuel and energy. The conflict lead to the creation of a military group called Celestial Being, dedicated to eradicating war and uniting humanity. All events lead up the movie Gundam 00 The Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer.
Out of all the Gundam series this is a must see. It has just the right amount of romance (SEED killed me with the romance!), the Gundam's aren't too over powered and the story is awesome. If you don't like war anime with a lot of politics then you may not like it as much, but give it a shot.
