Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Episode 2 Discussion
Oct 24, 2015 4:57 PM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Anyone else see Episode II at MCM Loves Anime? I had a very good experience watching it since it was with other people rather than just myself or one or two friends. This was most Gundam fans I have been with in a single place. I fell so happy to one of the first people in the world outside of Japan to see it.
Anyway, I remember some of the key scenes from the manga pages. Catching all the cameos and foreshadowing.
I liked it that Éduoard was stoic when he sees Char Aznable for the first time

I wonder why they spelled his alias as Edouard instead of using the usual w. Edit: I answered my own question. It's due to Japanese to English romanization, spelling things exactly as it's sounded.
It's probably because that's the way Edward generally gets spelled in Spanish. With them supposedly being the children of Don Teabolo (in Spain), it would fit their cover better.

Cameo from from Mirai! I wonder why they spelled his alias as Edouard instead of using the usual w. Edit: I answered my own question. It's due to Japanese to English romanization, spelling things exactly as it's sounded. At any rate, I think it's pretty obvious now as to the fate of the real Char, with Casval eventually taking his identity.
Can't quite put my finger on it as to why, but I'm enjoying this far more than the currently airing Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans anime. Maybe it's the character designs, or maybe it's just because I'm an oldie.

Poor Artesia/Sayla. Not as good as first episode. Now, can't wait to see him turn into the legendary Red Comet.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.
It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Worth watching, currently my favorite from Gundam franchise so far.
Casval is very terrifying indeed. But I like they show the darkness inside him. Only his cute imouto can stop/control him for now.

Why do I have the ominous feeling that the real Char Aznable will become an unfornate victim of Casval nii san's thirst for revenge?
This episode was a step up from the previous one, even though it mostly served as a build up to Casval's transformation into Char Aznable.

Gahh the mobile workers were so cool. That whole scene was directed so well. The angles it was shot from and showing it through a hazy camera conveyed its horrifying power. It feels like an ominous weapon that would change warfare as it should.
Also poor Sayla she's like the bad luck brian of Gundam. I just wanna hold her and tell her its alright she will be a total bad ass in a few years. T.T
Char beating up that scout was so satisfying, felt like these two episodes built up to that really well.

Very nice this second ova/film!!!
The most interesting was the Casval/Eduard is not the same person that Char Aznable. I always thought that Casval was Char Aznable, but in this episode we could watch that Char is a young boy, the same physical appearance that Casval, except the colour eyes, brown, of a family of Side 5 with dreams. Meanwhile Casval every minute has a dark heart, hate, resentment and revenge all that he has!!!
Artesia and Casval lose in this episode their mother, but Artesia loses more, Lucifer his cat died and Casval go out!!!
Also is important, the Zeon development of the Mobile Workers, that years later ends in the Mobile Suits!!!!
Was a nice second ova, with a short apparence of a young Mirai.
Artesia really had it bad didn't she. Brutal how it all came crashing down at once. Moving from Earth to a colony, even a good one, would be hard enough. As someone mentioned earlier, I have a feeling the real Char will go down for Casval's revenge quest. That dude hates everyone. Still struggling to see how his Earthnoid hate manifests, but I'm sure it will develop soon enough.
Ramba Ral might be my favorite character in this series. We got a glimpse of Amuro too, so we'll see how that plays out. He's a bit younger than Casval, and is just concerned with Haru. Awesome. Innocence, yeah that will be taken from you in a matter of a decade.

and try and finish 0079 these weeks. I liked the 3 movies, but it's time that I get to watch the original series before finishing these ovas.
Those 0079 movies are the better version of the story - rewritten dialogs, recreated battle scenes with movie animation quality ect.
The TV series at times come very bizzarre, some missing links too (and when I first watching the movies I though that those are adaption problems but naaah.).
