Synopsis

It is the year Universal Century 0079. Over 90 million people now populate the Earth and have been forced to live in space. People now live in large cylinder like colony clusters called Sides, all ruled over the Earth Federation Space Force (E.F.S.F.). Then, a group of colonies near the dark side of the moon, called Side 3, proclaimed themselves independent from the Earth Federation and called themselves the Principality of Zeon.

Now the war has passed on for eight months through and the war doesn't seem to end. They are both at a stalemate. The Federation tries with its last attempt to create a new powerful force to fight against the Zeonic forces. They create the White Base and a new and powerful Mobile Suit called the Gundam. The problem is, they are used by youths...

Mobile Suit Gundam: the Movie Trilogy is the definitive incarnation of the massively influential Mobile Suit Gundam TV series. It may not be perfect, but it definitely deserves its lofty status in the history of anime as a proven classic. As one cannot have one part of the trilogy without the others, this review will cover all three of the compilation movies.

The first question on any new viewer's mind regarding the story of Mobile Suit Gundam: the Movie Trilogy (MSG) would be: "Do the films condense too much story from the TV series to fit into its limited run time?" The answer to that is read more

The Gundam franchise holds a very special place in my life. Going back to my first exposure to it, my 11 year-old self was rather indignant that this new "Gundamn Wing" show was going to be replacing my favorite cartoon Dragonball Z. I now know that my local network was simply attempting to introduce a new, more serious anime and using the DBZ timeslot was a perfect test-drive. And I was hooked. A serious story, political drama, and giant robots, what wasn't there to love? As I put more research into this strange new series, I learned of course that it was only a small read more

Story: At first it seemed pretty messed up. I couldn't distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys but then innocents got killed so yeah. The story started slowly with a little display of conflicts, nothing wrong here. The problem is that it kept dragging on till the first hour and a half. I got sleepy there and had to take a break. However the "second part" got a lot better because the actions made more sense and some characters got development.
A mix of good and bad so 5.

Art: The art part was good for such an old movie, the chara design was great, read more

Story:
It's about a young boy joining the military, and the harsh reality of that process. However, with such a large ensemble cast, the story doesn't focus so much on Amuro like it should. The beginning jumps around a lot and around the halfway mark is it clear that the main arc we're following is Amuro's transformation from geeky teenager to self-sufficient soldier. It was annoying, because once I realized this I was wishing for more time to be spent with it.

I really enjoy the gray area nature of the narrative. Both the Federation and the Zeon have a cast of characters that are only fighting read more
