A lot of Gundam fans will probably tell you this is definitely either the best Gundam series, or at least a top 5 one. Hell, maybe even one of the best animes of all time. Allow me to explain why many including myself feel this way which this review is of course for. Despite being a short oav series, it has a descent amount of character on both the Zeon and Federation’s side where they all stand out and get their chance to shine, and develop as a result of it. Every character has their own ambition and dreams out side of the war. Such read more

This gundam series differed completely from any other gundams I've watched. This is more of a lighthearted soldier's perception on the battlefield rather than the whole political and philosophical thinking that goes on in the other series. It really has a practical and direct style unlike the other gundams and takes a more lighter tone with a commander just trying to accomplish his missions with the help of his squad on an episode to episode basis. And you know what? Thats good. This show pulls it off with the enjoyment level. Shiro and his crew make read more

Recommendations

If you liked the realistic depictions of soldiers without superpowers and post apocalyptic scenario of Blue Gender, then Gundam: 08th MS Team is a must watch. An interesting conflict with many types of realistic weapons and mecha with a distinguishable romance story makes 08th MS Team a good watch.
Both are excellent "real robot" mecha anime, and share a very intense and "realistic" feel towards the combat depicted. Both have a strong romance subplot, though 08th is minus the high school setting and related wackiness and also bit thinner on the humor.

08th is also a very good series to get into Gundam, it's set in the same universe as the classic Gundam series however it's more of a side story then anything else.
