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

by -

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 -

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.

Second half of the first season

by -

The conclusion to an epic first season. The first season animation is pretty dated but if you can get past that you’ll really enjoy this. There’s a lot of action and the animation is beautiful. If you want to see how it all began with Gundam I’d definitely buy this. The dub is really enjoyable too.

Doesn't leave you hanging

I've heard that production of the end of MSG was rushed, and while the pace does pick up in the last episodes, it didn't feel like any large piece of story was left untold.
Amuro does have a strong attachment to Lalah that feels a bit strange considering how little screen time they share, but the mental connection of Newtypes allows for knowledge beyond personal experience, so it is covered in the lore.
This second half really connects well with MSG The Origin and Unicorn, and was a satisfying conclusion to what started in collection 1.
