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

I've talked about the Gundam franchise quite a few times. Including the first Mobile Suit Gundam film. To kick off this year's film festival week, I'm going to be talking about the second film in that trilogy, Soldiers of Sorrow. To start with a quick recap, the Federation and space Nazis IE Zeon are at war. Our protagonists are a Federation force largely made up of teenagers, because so many adults have died. They're piloting the White Base on a mission.

Story:

So, our protagonists continue to make their way to Jaburo while getting into constant battles with Zeon and receiving limited support from the Federation read more

Story: The story got a lot better from the first film. It was easier to understand what was going on. Moreover it had better drama. That was better because it didn't seem too forceful compared to the first movie.

Art: The animation was still as good. However I found it odd that some characters especially the female ones looked practically the same except for hairstyles (Hamon and Matilda). Not really a flaw but worth noticing.

Sound: Nothing much to say here, the sound effects and the battle themes were well done. I think the voice acting was great too except for the kids. In my opinion it read more

The middle of the trilogy is a series of vignettes from the middle of the show. They're not stitched together in a way that indicates progression, aside from the mere fact of certain people dying at certain times. It is nonetheless compelling in isolated instances.

Watching this reminded me of something people are always saying about Eureka Seven. They say it's "just Mobile Suit Gundam again," but it's so obviously untrue. Eureka Seven is, rather, THE BEST PARTS of Mobile Suit Gundam, remixed and combined and extended so that they're often running simultaneously and throughout the show. For example, the section in this where Amuro meets read more
