"Daddy don't fart in front of people!" Is only ONE of the philosophical adages from Mobile Suit Gundam-san worth quoting for hours to come. This show is hilarious, but it is imperative that you watch Mobile Suit Gundam before watching Mobile Suit Gundam-san. It's a sad fact of life, even sadder than that the "episodes" (I prefer to call them epics or neo-bibles) are only 3 minutes long, so you know it's quality.
The art in this show is rendered in stunning, eye-blazing two-dimensional slide show format with minimal actual animation and seldom use of anything else. It must have cost several things to make! Kill
La Kill was obviously inspired by Mobile Suit Gundam-san.
But, what about the story? Well, that's not really important.
Auditory bliss is what I would call the sound. There's no dub, but I'd pay Funimation to make one. In other words, an A+ for the sound. You can rate this as helpful, now. What can be said about the characters in Mobile Suit Gundam-san? All of them come from somewhere else. There's a few original characters. They're all for the birds. Get it!? No? Well, you better see Mobile Suit Gundam-san, then!
In other words, best show I've ever seen. Quote it daily to my Mobile Suit Gundam fan friends, in other words nobody because I don't have any. Friends that is. This show is funny enough to make friendlessness feel okay.
A show that you really can't get unless you have watched Gundam.
Story: Their isn't any story... Everything in the shown revolves around jokes about the Mobile Suet Gundam 79 TV show. Everything is meant to poke fun and make you smile. But, only if you have seen the show. If not its really isn't worth your time. (1)
Art: This show uses a crude art style that is meant to be funny. The character models sharpen slightly and become more serious looking(kinda like the TV show drew them) then go back to the simpler art style. The art style is meant to add humor while watching,
so that is what it does. Nothing visually impressive though.(8)
Sound: What i found really interesting is the use of the Gundam 79's soundtrack. This somewhat remastered soundtrack fits in the modernized show while giving you the Gundam feel. The voice actors also do a great job voicing their roles, they try to capture the original voice actors voices in each character.(9)
Character: The characters are suppose to be like the ones from Gundam 79. Except in this parody each character is given a new characteristic to add humor to the show, and so again if you have seen the show they will make sense to you. Keep in mind this is still a parody so no real character development is present, and so you won't be introduced to these characters beforehand as your suppose to know who they are before watching.(7)
Enjoyment: If you understand all the references then you will be spitting up laughing. If not your out of luck.
Overall: Mobile Suit Gundam-san is a funny parody of the Mobile Suit Gundam (Gundam 79) show. It involves a lot of humor that references the show with some perverted, and slapstick humor. I found it very entertaining and recommend it to any one of my friends who have seen Gundam 79. So i feel a 8/10 is acceptable. Though it is funny and has its moments it fails by having akward, unfunny moments that leave you stone silent. Also since its purely a reference to a show not many people will watch it and enjoy it like i did. Still, very solid and funny parody from this summer(2014).
Mobile Suit Gundam-san is a comedy short anime about the original Gundam series lasting for 12 episodes and episodes lasting for 3-4 minutes.
The story is about the main character Amuro Ray a gundam pilot who pilots RX-78-2 Gundam and has to fight for survival against his arch nemesis! Puberty.... Mean while in MAN-08 Elmeth (A.K.A the enemy ship) the main villain Char Aznable has his own problems to deal with as his love interest Lalah Sune mocks Char Aznable.
The show tries to tell jokes and make fun of the troupes of the show it is parodying "Mobile suit Gundam".
Some jokes it
tells is how Char's MS-06S Zaku II is somehow stronger because he painted it red instead of green. I understand how it was "suppose to be funny" but the only people who would find a joke like that funny are newbie gundam fans who has little investment in the gundam franchise.
I dislike how this show is really mocking Char's character in the stupidest way possible! Char knows and the fans know that making it red doesn't make it stronger. The reason why the red MS-06S Zaku II looked stronger was because of Char's God like skill at piloting the thing. It basically shows how much of a badass char is using one of the worst gundams ever but being able to stand out as a unbeatable machine.
So there isn't a plot in this show, which would be fine for a comedy series if they deliver on the comedy.... Well unfortunately this Disgusting uninspired worthless piece of garbage, Calling it Garbage would be complementing it, thats how bad the show is. I tried to give it a chance and let its comedy make up for the lack of plot, However, when they spam f*cking fart jokes REALLY! FART JOKES! to try win the audience over you have the question the creators of this anime if they have seen "ANY" Gundam series to realize that the target audience for Gundam is NOT kindergarten children.
The art looks pretty good and when there were the scenes that were suppose to make you laugh they did it in styles that fit the scene greatly but that's the only thing they pass in.
Sound wise was alright and would of been a 7 but they kept playing the same sounds over and over and over again and not to mention the show starts off semi funny but when u watch the later episodes you realize the directors give NO SHITS and stopped trying. It became so boring and dumb, that even mental disabled people would say that the creator of this series is a retard, EVEN the guy that thought School Days was a good idea would think the person who created this is stupid.
They completely f*cked up the characters. Char Aznable went from Char the badass mother f*cker to Char the retard piece of sh*t who needs to burn and die in a hole. they made characters that everyone loved to characters people hate. The only character who was like able in the series was Lalah Sune, and that's because the show chose to keep her character intact instead of smash it with a hammer into several pieces like everyone else in this Series.
My enjoyment 2, It was mildly interesting at the start. but then the show activated their trap card: boring, brain dead comedy and plot which SPOILERS: has some plot with a chick (Yes a baby chicken) that feels like filler.
Overall I give it a 1, I thought the show was on to something at the start. But then realized i had just wasted 48 minutes of my LIFE!!! I COULD HAVE BEEN WATCHING 2 EPISODE OF SOMETHING DECENT LIKE BOKU NO HERO ACADEMIA! I recommend this show to NOBODY!!!
The creator of this anime didn't even try. So why should the audience give the show a try as well!?!
