The Finale of a Classic

by -

The second half of Gundam is where this series really shines. The first half set the stage and tackled some robot anime tropes but the second half introduces some very important concepts in Gundam, such as the Newtype, and greatly expands the depth of the cast. The portrayal of war is really poignant as the One Year Wars wraps up. Gundam is required viewing for all anime fans.

Great show, OK presentation

If you are a realistic robot fan, and want to see the show that started it all, MSG is the way to go. It is truly a New Type in the genre (at the time).







Amuro continues to struggle with his capabilities, being considered the first recognized New Type. Char continues to be elusive, and what happens with Lala defines Amuro as a character throughout the rest of the series, and the follow up series in which he appeared.







Audio is in Japanese and English. This is the same dub used for the Bandai Ent DVD releases, just less compressed.







Video quality is OK, but nothing amazing. I am slightly disappointed because the video was re-encoded from the Japanese release (given the additional language) and has some minor issues. In most cases, w/o a large display, you are unlikely to see it in motion, but at times I am a pixel peeper.







Great show with lots of history.
