Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack, by the well-known Gundam creator and director Tomino Yoshiyuki, is the first movie to enter the Gundam franchise. Watching this definitely requires the viewer to have at least seen Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, because otherwise you will simply not get the full enjoyment out of it. With that being said, the film has some great aspects and memorable moments, but there are a couple disappointing flaws that weigh down its score.

Well, I personally felt that this movie was conclusive, but felt more like a conclusion or some extension to the original series, and not really that well connected to Zeta and Double Zeta. Then again, this was the intention but I felt this movie could have used some of the main characters from that series or give us an update on Camille, Fa, and Judau, though there are other materials out there exclusive to Japan on what happened to them. Since the movie really has no direct connection to Zeta or Double Zeta, I don’t feel it’s really required that you watch those series, but read more

although Char's Counterattack and CG R2 are in a different format, if you take a close look, they are similar in some way as the story progresses. both stories are set during a war as characters Char and Lelouch fight to change the world despite having different roles and they are similar as well. The rivalry between the main characters Amuro and Char and Lelouch and Suzaku are similar.
Another Gundam movie you should add to your list! Universe's story and characters are similar in somewhat way as well as advanced mechas!
