Turn A Gundam

It is the Correct Century, two millenniums after a devastating conflict which left the world broken. Earth is now mostly uninhabitable, and thus a remnant of humanity has resided on the Moon while the Earth and its few survivors recover. For years, the "Moonrace," people of the Moon, have continued to check if Earth is fit for resettlement. A boy named Rolan Cehack and two others are sent down to Earth for a reconnaissance mission. Rolan ends up spending a year on the planet working for the Heim Family, aristocrats living in a Victorian-like society. This family, like others of similar wealthy status, celebrates one's coming of age with a ceremony involving a giant stone statue known as the "White Doll." To Rolan's surprise, the Moonrace suddenly touches down on Earth with the intent of taking it by force. During the attack, the White Doll is broken apart, revealing a mobile suit called the "Turn A Gundam" inside. With Rolan in its cockpit, the Turn A causes a standoff between the forces of Earth and Moon. The young pilot, along with the people of both sides, must keep the peace and avoid another all-out, catastrophic war. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Very unexpected coming from the Gundam series. Incredibly well done. I'm surprised this show isn't talked about more. A sleeper hit indeed.

86/100 Such a refreshing Gundam series. It's a wonderful character-driven drama for the first half, and an intense epic in the second half. This series works because of how interesting and well developed the characters are, as well as an amazing setting with some gorgeous animation. It is so different from the typical Gundam series, and yet it is still a Gundam show, but in a new and exciting way. If only more Gundam shows were like this. This is definitely the black sheep of the Gundam franchise, and requires patience, but those who watch until the end will be richly rewarded.
