The wildly popular anime TV sensation Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is coming to the States at last. The latest installment in the cyber-suit franchise that started in the 1970s, Gundam 00 takes place in the year 2307 AD. Genetic engineering and solar power has divided Earth and its colonies into a massive civil war. Now it's up to a group called the Celestial Beings to use the Gundam mechas to stop the horrific slaughter.In this future, fossil fuels have completely been tapped out and humanity runs on solar power. Countries with the best solar power capabilities now call the shots and are at war with the weaker lands. This unfair advantage, and threat to the "promised land of God," leads to the creation of the Celestial Beings, a group who wants to end the war and unite us all under the four Gundam mechs. The series will begin airing on the Sci Fi Channel this November on the 17th. There will be a total of 50 episodes, which originally aired in Japan in 2002. What's a Gundam Mobile suit? It's a mecha war machine with the capability to inflict some serious devastation, considering your enemy doesn't also have a fancy suit of their own. The Gundam world is huge, and the dubbed version of this show will no doubt become a huge success for Sci Fi.
