Episode EX: Cien años de soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude)

 

Review by Chris Guanche

May 30, 2014

 

Commentary

 

In this compilation special, Cardeas' ghost ponders the history of Newtypes and the Universal Century, including the One Year War, the Gryps Conflict and the two Neo Zeon Wars. His narration is set to clips from the original Gundam, Zeta, ZZ and Char's Counterattack. Some footage from episodes 1 and 6 of Unicorn is mixed in, along with very minor bits of new animation, such as a news report on the Dakar attack and Cardeas' ghost flying outside Industrial 7. The episode's title is a reference to the novel of the same name by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and relates to the hundred years of the Vist family's solitude in using Laplace's Box to blackmail the Federation. There's really nothing new here, so you don't miss anything if you don't watch it. However, as an extra on the release of episode 7, it's a handy recap on UC history if you want a broader frame of mind before watching the series finale.
