At the halfway mark of the second season of Gundam 00, I'm having a hard time placing my finger on the why I should care for what's going on. None of the characters have been particularly likeable and there aren't even any that I really hate either. They're all there and it feels like they're just going through the motions. Very familiar motions at that. It's competently animated but the story and its execution feels overly convoluted and filled with too many characters so that there isn't enough time to really focus on any of them and make them more than just pawns to the story. I've loved a lot of Gundam over time, but this is one of the incarnations that's doing less and less for me as it goes on.
