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 final installment of the Mobile Suit Gundam movie trilogy is a masterpiece. Watching this film, it is incredibly difficult to believe that the movie is a compilation of over 20 TV episodes as the pacing, plot, art and character development are all outstanding. If any of the three movies in the trilogy have any rewatch value or are strong enough to stand on their own, this one is it.

Let's begin with the story. The Newtype concept comes full circle in this installment, embodied by a love triangle between Amuro, Char and Lalah Sune. The relationship transcends relatively simple romance and enters the realm read more

32 years later, after watching hundreds of animes, i still find myself enjoying every second of this movie from beginning to end. You may ask yourself: But isn't this movie outdated? How could i enjoy anything so old? Well, that's exactly what Mobile Suit Gundam is all about. It's about a series which made a huge impact in the industry, and even today, you can still see its influence which still lies deep in the roots of the history of anime.

This movie, aired in 1982, reprises the events from the original series created by Yoshiyuki Tomino back in 1979, from episodes 31 to 43, read more

So as said last time, the original Mobile Suit Gundam didn’t do well. I don’t really know why, but to be fair most of Tomino’s early shows have had bad ratings. Plus, I get the feeling that starting the same day as when the second season of Space Battleship Yamato ended wasn’t a good idea. But that’s just speculation on my part, so don’t quote me on that. So, what saved Gundam? Simple: A Bandai executive looked at it, thought it looked cool and asked Tomino to re-edit his TV Series into a Movie Trilogy (At least that’s what I think).

Thus was born the Mobile read more
