The amended and reworked 'A New Translation' series of Zeta Gundam movies were a very exciting announcement for many Gundam fans. With Tomino behind the helm again and the promise of remastered and brand new footage there's no way this could go wrong... right?

That's the nature of creating a film based on a dense and lengthy animated series, however, some of the choices in regards to what was removed are questionable. The changes and additions made to read more

A New Translation is one of 3 digitally remastered movies that encompasses the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam storyline. The first movie covers approximately one third of the MS Zeta Gundam series.

The digital remastering was not done totally. There would be new scenes added in with wonderful new animation. Just as you're happy and marvelling at the animation they cut to the scenes lifted 100% from the series, which while they might have been remastered look very dated. The switch between the "new" and "old" scenes is very jarring and affected my enjoyment of these movies.

That being said, some new scenes added in were very good read more

They are also the same author.
