One of the best in the Gundam series.

One of the best Gundam series ever made, it definitely has a place in everyone's top 3. This is essentially Gundam with a few pages taken from "Romeo & Juliet" and is noted for its high level of "realism" as applied to the series. At only 12 episodes, this is what you want to watch for a 0079 experience without having to sit through the goofiness and horrible art of the original. It also contains what many regard as the best fight scene of the entire UC. And the dub is top notch to boot.
Should also note, Episode 3 contains some sort of animation glitch/error at roughly 18:45. If you check out the old US DVD release, Karen's mouth moves for her line and then her eyes move towards the left side of the screen. The blu-ray has this as a jumpcut; Karen speaks but her mouth doesn't move, and then her eyes are suddenly looking to her right. This isn't RightStuf's fault however, it's in the Japanese Blu-Ray as well but not in the old US DVD release.
A nice expanded story in the Gundam UC universe

This was one of my favorite series of the Gundam franchise. I personally watched the first viewing on Adult Swim when it first aired back in the early 2000's. With both inciting action and a sub plot reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet (without the Shakespeare dialogue and overall ending), this would be a good series to pick up AFTER you watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam
08th MS Team

When it comes to Gundam, you expect newtypes, space battles, and some nicely built mechs. 08th MS Team however focuses on Ace Pilots, Guerrilla Warfare, and Replacing missing parts with uneven ones on mobile suits. This OVA portrays as accurate as war can be and how it affects from the soldiers perspective.
