As one of the significant broadcasting styles, television animations programmes are usually produced for children. However, Japanese animations are different from the general productions because they might include wider topics and refer to realistic problems. Therefore, there are suitable for adults and they may attach more value than others creations. The Mobile Suit Gundam Animation Series is a key example. This series was originally shown in 1979 and it contains variety storylines. All of the stories refer to portray the imaginary future society but comment on important social issues. For instance, the world of Gundam 00 is built on the hypothesis of fossil fuels depletion and humans start to use the renewable energy like solar power in that generation. This presentation introduces what include in my dissertation and what I can find from working on this work.
