I believe I've said this before, I like Gundam X. And you are right, it does in some ways show the aftermath of it. But it does it in sort of a campy, cheery way. In the 12 episodes I've seen of it, it doesn't have quite the post apocalyptic feel of say, the first two Mad Max films, or even The Postman or Waterworld. Were humanity barely held on and ever day is a struggle to survive. And as much as I like Garoud, I have to say that he is the main cause of this lack.
