Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower Review
Story (7/10) Good
More Specifically (7.50/10) Good+
In comparison to the episodic format previously release just like December Sky I feel that having all 4 ONA episodes combined into one movie makes it easier and understand and consume. Unless it's either been a while and I forgot or if they actually did I noticed a few additional scenes but not too many.
Art and Animation (10/10) Masterpiece
The animation and art-style of Gundam Thunderbolt never disappoints unique, rough and classic hand-drawn full as always.
Sound (8/10) Very Good
Nothing has really changed this time around that wasn't in the
ONA episodes the sound still very good and I guess some of the BGM didn't bother me as much this time around as it somewhat did when I watched and reviewed the ONAs even though it's the same.
Characters (8/10) Very Good
The Characters Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower are very good quite easy to follow everyone's motives and characterization. Although the Claudia stuff did get a bit confusing nothing else really stood out as a big issue. None of the characters had any mind-blowing character development or characterization to make it any high than an 8/10.
Enjoyment (8/10) Very Good
More Specifically (8.50/10) Very Good+
I enjoyed watching Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower a bit more than I did watching the ONAs because like I said before it feels it's easier to consume one movie with out the pauses of binge watching four episodes or in my case when the ONAs were airing waiting monthly for them.
Overall (8/10) Very Good
More Specifically (8.40/10) Very Good
Not much is needed to be said about Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower, although I wish Io and Daryl confronted each other that's what made Season 1 aka December Sky so amazing which was their climatic rivalry but oh well and the last about 20 minutes of the movie was a bit of a challenge to follow but not too bad either way if you were wonder if you should watch the ONAs or this movie choose this movie it's better don't believe the score on this MAL page for either this or December Sky in comparison to it's ONAs.
