Mobile Suit Gundam: the Movie Trilogy is the definitive incarnation of the massively influential Mobile Suit Gundam TV series. It may not be perfect, but it definitely deserves its lofty status in the history of anime as a proven classic. As one cannot have one part of the trilogy without the others, this review will cover all three of the compilation movies.

The first question on any new viewer's mind regarding the story of Mobile Suit Gundam: the Movie Trilogy (MSG) would be: "Do the films condense too much story from the TV series to fit into its limited run time?" The answer to that is read more

The Gundam franchise holds a very special place in my life. Going back to my first exposure to it, my 11 year-old self was rather indignant that this new "Gundamn Wing" show was going to be replacing my favorite cartoon Dragonball Z. I now know that my local network was simply attempting to introduce a new, more serious anime and using the DBZ timeslot was a perfect test-drive. And I was hooked. A serious story, political drama, and giant robots, what wasn't there to love? As I put more research into this strange new series, I learned of course that it was only a small read more

Both are the first part of a string of films/OVAs that summarize the history of their respective series.
In addition, the two correspond to mythical series real robot.
The Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy takes footage from the episodes Mobile Suit Gundam television series and puts them into three movies for a quick but thorough experience, this allowed a boost in popularity for the Gundam franchise because many people could watch it in theatres in Japan back then.

Do You Remember Love? adapts the story of the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series and also compresses it down for quick but thorough viewing, just like the Mobile Suit Gundam Movie trilogy, it was a great publicity boost for its own series.

Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy has a more focused matured plot, while Macross should be best appreciated for its great music and the stunning animation it had amongst other anime of its age.
