Mobile Suit Gundam 00
2307 AD. As fossil fuels became exhausted, humanity found a new energy source to change their situation: A large-scale solar power system with three enormous orbiting elevators. However, only a few large countries and their allies reaped the benefits.
Three superpowers had ownership of the three orbiting elevators: The Union, based in the United States Of America, The People`s Reform League, made up of China, Russia, and India, and Europe`s AEU. The superpowers continue playing a large zero-sum game for their own dignity and respective prosperity. Even though it is the 24th century, humanity has yet to become one.
In this world where war has no end, a private militia appears advocating the eradication of war through force. Each possessing a mobile suit Gundam, they are Celestial Being. The armed intervention by the Gundams against all acts of war begins.

I like complex stories with lots of tricky manouvering - either tactical, strategic or political - but only if the background is properly developed. This show had some interesting moments but the way ti blunged into the central conflict without laying the ground work first was just annoying.
It's Gundam with simularities between past series throughout. However, having the Gundam as paramilatary group is interesting. The Gundams might end up being the anti-hero or antagonist in the story is good start.
seems ok, but i've never been a big fan of any of the Gundam series. i think i'll give this a pass.
