Synopsis

U.C. 0123. Mobile Suit Gundam F91 is Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino's attempt to launch a new Gundam saga, set thirty years after Char's Counterattack.

The story of Gundam F91 revolves around teenage space colonist Seabook Arno, his friend Cecily Fairchild, and the efforts of the Crossbone Vanguard militia, led by Cecily's grandfather Meitzer Ronah, to establish an aristocracy known as "Cosmo Babylonia".

In keeping with Gundam tradition, the civilian Seabook is forced by circumstance to pilot the F91 Gundam, coincidentally designed in part by his estranged mother, Dr. Monica Arno.

Gundam F91 is decent. Balancing equal pros and cons, this after product of an attempt to start a new full length gundam series that fell apart manages to hold itself together and deliver a sufficient package, but fails to achieve what it could have been.

In terms of story, it's pretty standard Gundam fare. The space faring Zeon expies want to start an empire and it's up to our stupidly named protagonist to pilot the Gundam to victory. The story had a lot of potential, like a pristine plate, but then it was dropped and taped back together. It all feels rushed. Scenes feel like read more

Ever wonder what happens when a fifty-episode series gets condensed to under two hours? The answer to that lies within Mobile Suit Gundam F91 -- a textbook example of wasted potential. Though F91's core story is a solid idea that draws plenty of inspiration from its predecessors, without any flesh on its narrative bones, F91 is reduced to an inconsistent and and very much rushed tale. However, boasting its nostalgic story along with great animation, F91 is still worth a look by fans of the gundam franchise.

Due to disputes amongst the original production staff, this ill-fated chapter of the universal century gundam saga was cut read more

Nobody does an attack on a civilian population better than the Gundam franchise.

The opening to this movie blew me away. When a gigantic bullet casing, falling from a mecha's weapon, bounced off a lady's head on a street far below, causing her to fall over and die, I instantly gave this a 10.

This is the kind of movie I was hoping Char's Counterattack would be. A coherent and compelling movie charting everything we love about the Gundam franchise. The horror and tragedy of war, the visceral action and drama, the complexity and ambiguities of ideologies, mecha blowing shit up.

At the end of Gundam F91, it implies there will be a follow-up series.

Unfortunately this never materialised. Which is a shame, because it's a good movie and would have made a good series.

Because of these cuts, the movie is somewhat disjointed and incoherent, and certainly shouldn't be watched for an awesome plot. What it does do, however, is show off some nice mech designs, have a cool villain with a silly plan, and have awesome animation and art.

The plot is fairly standard Gundam, with people from space, people from Earth and some other people from another patch of space fighting. Also Newtypes, who as fans read more

Both of these are movie installations of a long running space franchise, and both have updated art and animation when compared to previous releases in the franchise, though these changes are far more agreeable in MSG F91. Most importantly however, is that each of these films contains one of the best anime deaths ever, with the shell casing KO at the start of F91 and the hanging at the end of Ougon no Tsubasa.

Both films are set in the two bigger Gundam worlds (UC universe for F91 and CE for Stargazer) but regardless, they can both probably be enjoyed even without seeing their parent stories and connections, as they're fairly standalone (Stargazer does have some cameo appearances though). One thing they both really excel at compared to the main Gundam series, is the high amount of realism put into the action and some scenes. They're both a bit more upfront with the violence, depicting some gritty death scenes and whatnot. F91 opens up wiith an insanely detailed colony attack scene while Stargazer opens up with a city under  read more
