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

Story: The story got a lot better from the first film. It was easier to understand what was going on. Moreover it had better drama. That was better because it didn't seem too forceful compared to the first movie.

Art: The animation was still as good. However I found it odd that some characters especially the female ones looked practically the same except for hairstyles (Hamon and Matilda). Not really a flaw but worth noticing.

Sound: Nothing much to say here, the sound effects and the battle themes were well done. I think the voice acting was great too except for the kids. In my opinion it read more

The next stop on my tour of the Universal Century. Upping that ante from the previous movie, there really isn't much to say about it other than the fact that the movie is a middle chapter to larger story. This one contains more action, character development and finally some plot, something I felt was sorely missing from the previous movie.

The main subject of discussion here would be character development. Even relatively minor characters like Matilda and Kai get some, further reinforcing them as believable human beings. Of note is Amuro's development. Previously, we saw him as a reluctant teenager drawn into a mess he read more

Recommendations

Anime: Macross: Do You Remember Love?
Both movies summarize their respective TV series. They are made around the same period, and have similar art and animation. Both focus on intense battles between mecha, and also have some romantic elements (which are more highlighted in Macross). Both have an overall similar vibe, with the main difference being that Gundam is a bit more mature, while Macross focuses a lot on music.

Anime: Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Both are the second films in their respective film series that summarize and retell the events from the TV series. Both are mecha anime, featuring a young protagonist who has to pilot a mecha and experience war at a very young age.

Anime: Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu
Both are military science fiction anime that focus on a conflict between two factions that share different ideologies. Both series portray war in a fairly realistic way, showing its destructive effects, as well as having many characters die in the line of duty.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Both are mecha anime, which try to deconstruct their genre. In both anime, the main protagonist is a teenager, who becomes a mecha pilot, this becoming a child soldier in a devastating war. Both anime show the impact of war on these children, as they are forced to kill enemies and cope with the loss of their comrades. Also, in both shows, the main protagonists have a similar attitude and often refuse to participate in combat. Overall, both anime have a similar grim atmosphere and deal with similar themes.

Anime: Soukou Kihei Votoms: Vol.2 Highlights of the 'A.T. Votoms'
Both are the second 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.

Will someone PLEASE think of the children?? if u put away the extraterrestial storyline of Layzner, it pretty much comes down as kids in warfare that survive by the skin of their teeth, both refer that! with mecha and all!
