A collection of short parodies of the Mobile Suit Gundam saga. Episode 1 pokes fun at key events that occurred during the One Year War. In episode 2, Amuro, Kamille and Judau fight over who runs the better pension when Char comes in to crash their party. Episode 3 is the SD Olympics, an array of athletic events pitting man with mobile suit.
this 3 part special is one of 5 that include all of the characters from the main original gundam series. it was part of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack series and was originally aired in movie theaters but was later released on VHS
in this special, each episode contains a different plot. the first episode is just a lot of fun fight and action scenes that help intro the characters into the episode. the second episode involves the guys hosting the female characters in different houses for a vacation; the hijinks occur as the guys fight over the attention of the girls. the third
episode depicts the gundam olympics where all of the characters participate in various olympic games to see who comes out on top.
story (6/10): most specials and shorts like these really dont have much to them in the way of plot partly because they are so short as well as most of them not really adding to the plot of the main series. the plots of each episode were cute and mildly entertaining and even made me chuckle at points. the characters were also broke the 4th wall a lot and were really self aware which i loved. i liked how they really didnt take themselves too series with this project and just had fun with it considering it was sorta promotional for the movie it was released with
art & sound (6/10): it wasnt too horrible given the fact that this was produced in the late 80s so they were working with whatever they had. the sound effects were very nostalgic and honestly the chibi art style aged well
characters (7/10): they are the same characters and voice actors as the main series so theres nothing new. the chibi style allows them to be/act more like caricatures (which is to be expected from a project that is made light heartedly) the only issue with the special is that they have literally almost every character so not everyone gets their fair share of screen time, which is kinda a bummer considering that in total its 30 minutes of screen time with plots that involve a lot of characters
overall (6/10): its cute and its something nice to watch to supplement the franchise!!! its a nice piece of art that is super nostalgic and quirky that, in some aspects, withstands the test of time
