Looks like a serious story on the Universal Century era of Mobile Suit Gundam lore, a welcome addition after the conclusion of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn not long ago. The animation looks lush and battle is pretty well animated with generous production value by Sunrise Studio.

Now hopefully, the story won’t be so stilted or cringe worthy dialogue like the Unicorn does.
