"The Gundam franchise is the stuff of legend. That isn’t up to debate. The series has changed anime forever and pioneered the mecha concept and laid the foundation for those that have followed it. Gundam has been around so long that every generation for the past 40 years has had a Gundam series to grow up with. There have been dozens of Gundam stories and each has captured the hearts of a generation. Gundam 00 landed mid-way through the 2000s having first aired in 2007, connecting with a generation that had known a world of unrest."
