Taking place before the original Mobile Suit Gundam, MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War, is told from the prospective of Zeon, more specifically Oliver May. He is a member of the 603rd Technical Evaluation Unit and stationed on the Jotunheim. Over the course of the three part OVA, Oliver and the rest of the main crew of the Jotunheim are joined by one new character each episode and a new weapon to accompany them. Each weapon is tested and evaluated by the crew of the Jotunheim with often tragic endings.

The CG animation is fairly good, but when compared to recent animated features it doesn't read more

What an unexpected gem this was! A true find among Gundam series. I started this with no expectations and was amazed that this OVA was so good in almost every respect.

Recommendations

Both have nearly identical episodic formulae: establish a problem and resolve it emotionally. The "weekly dish" in NYC is a monster, in IGLOO it's an experimental weapon. While in the former the plot focuses on the actual weekly variation, the latter uses the Weapon of the Week merely as a backdrop for the story and focuses instead on characters.
