Great Gundam value
by Lomax Webb -
Arrived in awesome condition, and even earlier than the release date, which really surprised me. A stellar value, getting the whole series in one DVD rather than having to collect four. Worth it.
08Th MsTeam is exactly what a Gundam should be
by MATT -
After watching the series on toonami back in the day I was happy to finally own it on DVD. Rightstuf really went way beyond expectations. The picture and the colors are sharp and clear. The dub sounds as good as you can expect and the VA fit well with their characters. All 13 episodes are present including the final episode that was never shown on tv. Also rightstuf was cool enough to add in Miller's report and as an added bounus if you ever wondered what this would look like in 2013 animation you get your wish.
Luckily this mobile suit does not fall into the same same problems that some of the newer msg do like pilots not wanting to pilot a gundam for instance. This is about war and everthing that comes with it good and bad. If you don't mind older animation and the dub work of the 90s this is a great watch. If you couldn't get into the original mobile suit gundam give this series a try. You will not be disappointed.
Jungle Warfare in Gundams.
by Green -
The 08th MS Team takes the Gundam franchise from its familiar space setting and brings the action down to Earth and the result is a grittier, dirtier war story set in the jungles of Southeast Asia. In a way it's Mobile Suit Gundam meets the Vietnam War.
This OVA avoids the usual Universal Century Gundam tropes of psychic newtypes and space combat to focus on a small team with limited resources trying to hold off the Zeon invaders on their home turf. The setting works fabulously and is a must have for fans of UC Gundam and the One Year War.
There are a few issues such as the mediocre star-crossed lovers plot that takes over the focus of the show but overall 08th MS Team is highly recommended for lovers of mecha action and 90's anime in general. You don't need to be a Gundam scholar to get into and enjoy this series.
One Corner of the One-Year War
by Josh -
The first episode kicks things off nicely, but then things slow way down. But the final few episodes pay off that time investment. Good music, lots of mechs and action and I like the characters a lot. Personally I think Stardust Memory is the better short Gundam series, but this one's pretty good too. Just ground-pounders trying to make it through the war; no new-types or any psychic stuff.
