Evolve 2: RX-178 Gundam Mk-II

 

Review by Chris Guanche

January 16, 2005

 

Summary

 

In UC 0088, Argama chief engineer Astonaige Medoz sends Kamille Bidan a video and wishes him a quick recovery. The video contains footage from a battle simulation run during the Gryps War. In the simulation, Kamille used the Gundam Mk II against several target drones. After destroying them, the video goes on to show technical information, along with the internal details of the Mk II. Next, Kamille participates in another battle simulation, this time against two Rick Dias units. He easily disables both units and complains that the difficulty level is set too low. Char tells him that the simulation isn't over yet and tosses him a beam rifle. Kamille then fires at more targets and accidentally destroys the camera recording the simulation. He apologizes to Astonaige, who tells him they'll have to write up a report now.

 

Commentary

 

Directed by Ryukow Masuo, this second Gundam Evolve clip is the first to utilize new CG animation. The animation shows the Mk II in nice detail, along with its internal systems and skeletal frame. There's not much of a story here, but the whole point is to see the Mk II rendered in nice CG, which this short certainly does.
