The dub stars Brad Swaile, the lead of death note and black lagoon and is generally good.
Animation is very old but never fails to tell the story as it needs too
The music is campy and fun.
And Char, he's pretty glorious too.
I saw unicorn first and wanted more of the UC timeline, having now seen quite a few gundams, they have a lot of reused themes, pros and cons.
Amaro is the best protagonist, and Char the best fan favorite bad guy, but best gundam? That would be Turn A
All of universal century is about the length of 180 normal episodes. Turn A is a better choice to see if Gundam is your style. (Unless it's dubbed or bust)
6/10 overall a lot of the episodes feel unimportant, the enemy appears, gundam saves the day
Here's what made the sun rise on Sunrise

'Mobile Suit Gundam' was by no means the first mech series, but has become one of the pillars on which anime fandom rests, broadly speaking. An objective watch will demonstrate why that is; the animation stands up pretty well overall--even when they're cutting budgetary corners, it tells its story visually first. The mech combats and space battles hold up especially well. And Char is one of the most interesting antagonists--I can't call him a 'villain'--I've seen in an anime for awhile;the man dresses in pink, and pulls it off. Impressive! A solid watch--Thanks, Right Stuf, for making this show accessible to new audiences!

It is nice that they broke up the original 3 movies into episode format. A great way to get into the Gundam Series.

While the show may not have aged gracefully it is still a compelling story and the art and music has aged a lot better then other shows from the mid 60's to late 70's. my only complaint and the whole reason I could not give this masterpiece of anime a 5 star rating is that this is just a reissue of the old Bandai dvds from the early 00's with no new special features, charter or mech bios or even adding in the cut episode as bonus. also despite it's age the decision was made to split it up between two different collections, its bad enough modern Gundams are split between two "seasons" and then there dvds are sold as complete seasons the fact that older seasons still get this split the show into two half's is infuriating. All in all I love this show and this franchise but it felt like they could have done more to do it justice when bring it back to dvd after over a decade of being out of print.
Like fine wine...........

What with the cheesy campy opening theme, this "failure" of an origin series comes packaged with pathos, drama, teenage angst, death, war where there is no exact black and white, right or wrong. Real Robot genre indeed!
Macross, the original, barely comes close with all the overlapping plotlines, convoluted at times come to a premature close (the 43 episodes sure ended too quickly which has now spanned all these sequels (the latest being a direct one Unicorn).
Style wise, despite being made at the end of the 70s, still has its certain charm with the hand drawn cels. Growing up with the SuperRobot genre, I knew what to expect though if you started with the latest modern high detail CGI packed "Origin" OVA, then continue with this, the transitioning will be a bit jarring at times.
Should you invest 300 minutes + for this? Verily I say and get ready to be humming the theme song for a very long time! You won't regret!
