While Gundam: Twilight Axis is a nicely animated Gundam series, the ONA format is a rather questionable decision in that it greatly limits the amount of time that the series can devote to focus on plot and characters, particularly the ONA's lead characters Arlette and Danton who are shown to gradually develop a relationship together yet this lacks the cohesive chemistry for audiences to develop a connection to them. Overall, this is easily one of the weakest titles of the Gundam franchise I have seen thanks to the ONA format greatly limiting how much time it can focus on exploring its plot and characters.
