Synopsis

What was the tragedy that decided the fates of Char Aznable, the man later nicknamed the "Red Comet" as an ace pilot of the Zeon forces, and his sister Sayla Mass?

The two siblings' journeys, brought on by the sudden death of their father Zeon Zum Deikun who was a leader of the Spacenoids, are depicted in the four episodes of "Chronicle of Char and Sayla."

The Zabi family who seize control of Side 3 and lead the Principality of Zeon, the early days of many renowned Zeon ace pilots who later fight in the One Year War, the secrets of mobile suit development, conflicts with the Earth Federation Forces, and the road leading to the outbreak of war—all will be revealed.

Real quick, the Gundam: The Origin anime is the best supplement to the original series. Period. Now, there are three ways to consume it! First is the Origin manga which retells the entire original Gundam story with additional backstory, and over the last few years the additional backstory has been adapted into a series of 6 OVA movies. This year, in true budget fashion, the OVA has been recut into a 13 episode series with minimal new content produced. The TV version, Advent of the Red Comet, is one of the best seasonal anime I've seen this year. The crisp animation and story make it read more

*Spoilers ahead. TL;DR with the bottom two paragraphs*

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin is one of my favorite anime of the decade. It is a prequel done exceptionally well, and it is easily one of the best installments in the franchise.

**Warning: contains spoiler** (More so if you are unfamiliar with the UC Gundam stories.)

Mobile Suites Gundam: The Origin is first and foremost a powerful human story. It is also a war and politics epic. Of course, at the same time, it is a gundam show.

Char Aznable is a rich character. And Gundam: The Origin shows why. The Origin follows the trajectory of Char's life from his early youth to the establishment of his fame as the ace pilot of Zeon. Along that trajectory, Char's life started in one of the most privileged families, then thrown by external forces to the worst bottom, and later climbed read more
