Synopsis

In Universal Century 0079, forces of the Earth Federation and Principality of Zeon engage in a battle within the Thunderbolt Sector during the One Year War. This section of space—known for its constant strikes of electricity—proves to be a deadly battlefield, as Federation pilot Io Fleming leads a charge against Zeon's ace Daryl Lorenz and his squad of snipers. With the fighters on both sides proving to be formidable soldiers, neither side is willing to back down, fighting strategically amongst the remnants of colonies.

But when Io gets a hold of a prototype Gundam, Daryl will have to make a sacrifice in order to obtain enough power to crush his enemy and ensure that Zeon is victorious, or watch as his comrades are slaughtered by a single man.

Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Review

Story (9/10) Great

The story for Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt is great even though it does not adapt the entire manga because that's still ongoing and unfortunately if we want to continue the story that's where you're going to have to go at least until season 2 comes out as far as this review. But as far as what little story they gave us it has capture the initial war story and atmosphere that the original Gundam set out to bring to the table. The presentation alone on every level definitely help more so than before because I did read the manga ...

Mixed Feelings
I understand the appeal of having gorgeous mecha blowing each other up in a well animated battle spectacle to the tune of snappy upbeat jazz, I really do. It’s just a shame that Gundam Thunderbolt couldn’t deliver much more than that. It’s definitely a good looking and sounding show, but its narrative and characters fall short in comparison. Not to say it can’t be enjoyable and entertaining, but your experience will greatly vary on what you look for in your gundam shows.

The main duo weren’t particularly bad, yet come off as very underwhelming. Not much effort on giving them personality outside of making sure they ...

I personally chose the shortest Gundam series I found on here and decided to watch it because I had some time. I only did this so I actually say I've at least seen some installment of one of the classic mecha series. I'm honestly really disappointed with it though and I'll explain why.

The story really isn't anything more than a typical war in space story between opposing federation factions. That's really all there is to it, except that they use giant robots are their weapons. I wish they actually showed some weapons or something being used on the Gundams because they ...
