A Hot Mess of a story, but in a sad and good way!

by -

This story was a hot mess, but in a sad and good way. This four episode arc of Char and Sayla was heartbreaking, tragic, but uplifting as well. It shows you the beginning of Char's and Sayla's behind the scenes story of how they became the people we know of from the first, original Mobile Suit Gundam anime story series. From the December 2017 Otaku USA magazine, on page 83, the four episodes was very well received in Japan and outside the country of Japan. Therefore, two additional episodes were announced to continue the story. The fifth episode is only available in Japan with the Japanese language on it. Hopefully, the RightStuf company will be able to get the US rights to episodes 5 and 6, and any other episodes that Japan might want to release. If you would like to find out what happened to Char and Sayla in their early years, this is the DVD for you!

This is how to make a great PREQUEL!

Still waiting for the Battle of Loum RS!

The point 0 of my UC binge fest, The Origin is doing a "prequel" right!

Now we see with our own eyes in a beautifully rendered, high production values futuristic world, the political environment that eventually leads to the One Year War ( its as if I was watching the regular world events in the everyday news). How Char is one screwed up fellow , Sayla is actually the only one with her head properly attached on her shoulders, Amuro being the typical teenager with real world problems and not the near messianic figure he would become in CCA.

Downside? Once you transition to the main 0079 series. After being spoiled with the high production values of The Origin and follow the series chronologically, its kind of a let down (not that the 0079 remaster is something to sneeze at) with the old school late 70s style animation.

Must not MISS!
