Zeon ace pilot, Commander Char Aznable, thought he could foil the Federation's plan to build a mobile suit by attacking their research base on colony Side 7. He was wrong. With a prototype already active, the besieged Federation forces strike back using their new weapon, the mobile suit Gundam, with devastating consequences. Amidst the fighting, young electronics wizard Amuro Ray is determined not to let his friends and family die in the crossfire. But what can one boy do to repel a squad of mobile suit-clad invaders?

In my opinion, a true masterpiece. I just can't find excuses to not rate it 10. The story is extremely rich, the art (characters, the coloring, the angles, the action moments, the dialogues), the characters' development, everything is 10 to me. I wanted so many animes to get a manga like this. I don't have words to describe how immersive reading this was. The complex story, the political drama, the battles, the context, everything is so well explained and in such an epic way!
Even support characters like Garma got more background, we got a little bit of some slice of life of Char and read more

Mobile Suit Gundam:The Origin is best way to get into Gundam. I fell in love with each and every aspect of this masterpiece done by one of the Gods of the anime and manga industry: Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. It's a retelling of the original Anime that aired in the late 70s. Nevertheless Yasuhiko-Sensei adds a lot of backstory about the origin (as the title suggests) of the conflict as well as the individual stories and motives of some of the main characters. Now let's get started with the actual review.

The story is simple but very well executed. It starts and we're already read more
