Ratings & Reviews
The Finale of a Classic
by Neil -
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.
A missing cornerstone of the Japanese animation invasion of the 80's
by Stevicus -
Watching this show made me feel like a kid again. Between the Star Blazers and Voltrons of my childhood, this first Gundam series always seemed out of reach. But not anymore. I was hoping to gain a better perspective on the rest of the Gundam universe from its beginnings, but that is really not to be had here. This is about ugly robots versus one beautiful one, and no matter how many weird politics they want to drape it in, it never gets above that, and that is okay.
The presentation is great, and extra kudos for RightStuf getting with Sunrise to get this out there. Another review mentioned some quality issues on bigger displays, but remember the source material. Most of this is cheaply produced hand painted cels, you are not going always going to get a pristine product down the line later.
Now looking forward to picking up the upcoming prequel Gundam movies.
And Outlaw Star!
And Big O!
I love this place.
