Synopsis

The One Year War comes to a close, as the Zeon forces now retreat back into space. Amuro learns much more of his Newtype abilities and tries to use them the best way he can. He's pushed to his limit as he encounters the infamous Char Aznable once again. He also falls in love with a mysterious woman named Lalah Sune, who knows the full potential of the Newtype abilities.

The greatest battle is about to begin, as many loved ones fall to the power of war. Can the Earth Federation defeat the Principality of Zeon? Or will they fail? Can Char prove that he's the better Newtype than Amuro? They all will be answered now...

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

32 years later, after watching hundreds of animes, i still find myself enjoying every second of this movie from beginning to end. You may ask yourself: But isn't this movie outdated? How could i enjoy anything so old? Well, that's exactly what Mobile Suit Gundam is all about. It's about a series which made a huge impact in the industry, and even today, you can still see its influence which still lies deep in the roots of the history of anime.

This movie, aired in 1982, reprises the events from the original series created by Yoshiyuki Tomino back in 1979, from episodes 31 to 43, read more

The final installment of the Mobile Suit Gundam movie trilogy is a masterpiece. Watching this film, it is incredibly difficult to believe that the movie is a compilation of over 20 TV episodes as the pacing, plot, art and character development are all outstanding. If any of the three movies in the trilogy have any rewatch value or are strong enough to stand on their own, this one is it.

Let's begin with the story. The Newtype concept comes full circle in this installment, embodied by a love triangle between Amuro, Char and Lalah Sune. The relationship transcends relatively simple romance and enters the realm read more

In this review of the last movie, I will leave out the art and sound parts because they are similar to the first and second one so instead of repeating myself, I will focus on the story and the characters.

As a conclusion to the film series, it did great. First mention would be the battle scenes. I stated in the second movie that Gundam should be more battle oriented (like developing the war aspect of the story). And that's what I got. Politics were kept to a minimum in this one and it was rather well done except the Hitler kudos (yeah Gihren Zabi, read more

Anime: Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo
Both are the third films in their respective film series. Both are mecha anime, featuring a young protagonist who has to pilot a mecha and experience war at a very young age.

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: 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. Overall, both anime have a similar grim atmosphere and deal with similar themes.
