About Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt December Sky Blu-Ray

Their war has not yet ended…

It is Universal Century 0079, at the end of the One Year War between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon. The space colonies of Side 4, or Moore, were previously destroyed by a Zeon attack, and many colonists lost their lives. Side 4 became a shoal zone filled with the wreckage of destroyed colonies and warships, lit by constant flashes of lightning due to collisions between electrified debris. It soon came to be known as the "Thunderbolt Sector."

The Moore Brotherhood, an Earth Federation Forces unit made up of surviving citizens from Moore, set out to exterminate the Zeon forces in the Thunderbolt Sector in order to reclaim their homeland. To halt the Federation advance, the Zeon forces deployed their own Living Dead Division, which was established to collect combat data on soldiers with prosthetic limbs.

Io Fleming, though part of the Moore Brotherhood, hates being tied down by his homeland and family history. Daryl Lorenz, having lost his legs in earlier battles, is now an ace sniper of the Living Dead Division. When they confront each other on the battlefield, they will reach a mutual realization. These two are destined to kill each other.

Weird Packaging

by -

Good quality blu ray, has both English and Japanese, and works well in movie form.

Mine came in a weird black case for the regular blu ray, and there is no slip-cover as advertised in the image.

Enjoyable, but not required watching for people who are curious about Gundam

by -

Movie that is an enjoyable watch!

While not a requirement for someone who wants to watch the main events of Gundam's Universal Century timeline, this is a great "side story" for people who are interested in them to watch. It picks up at around where the original mobile suit Gundam's end, right before the battle of a Boa Aqu.

The sound track is an almost reminiscence of the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack, despite it not being nearly as good. (Sorry music department of this series)

My only brief complaint is the ending. If you've watched the episodic form of this series, it is more clear through those episodic segments of this series.

Gundam thunderbolt


Ah gundam thunderbolt ⚡️

Gundam thunderbolt December sky is certainly a must watch for any true gundam fan and is perhaps one of my favorites in the series ,despite it being very short , I believe this is a must watch as it helps fill in gaps in the uc timeline ..

The character development and art style is some of the best I have seen in a very long time .. , the music is probably the best out of all the gundam series

At the end of it I was left wanting more of gundam thunderbolt jaw dropping fast pace action

Intense and amazing compilation film!

by -

This is one of the most intense Gundam stories I've ever watched. I appreciated how they condensed the series into this 1st part compilation film. The visual and auditory quality is outstanding! Although these might not be the coolest looking mobile suits, the action sequences are some of the most well-done and gut-wrenching I've ever seen. It's one of the best "horrors of war" depictions in the Gundam catalog.

Excellent Music, Awesome Animation, and the Tragedy of War!

by -

A movie version of the ONA series Gundam Thunderbolt with additional scenes added. Honestly I really got into Gundam this year, but some of the side story series didn't seem that interesting at first. 8th MS team great. 0083 was good but Kou and Nina really wore me down. THEN I got this and boom!

Io Fleming is semi-jaded, adrenaline junkie full of jazz and rage against Zeon.

Daryl Lorenz is the sensitive, handicapped sniper taking it slow with pop and MS capable prosthesis.

One side wants revenge for their destroyed home while being used as pawns in the greater plan.

The other side are being used as guinea pigs for cybernetic experiments and to keep Zeon pilot numbers up in the closing days of the One Year War.

The result?

Money well spent my friend.

Not your typical Gundam

by -

This is a fantastic looking movie with an amazing jazz soundtrack that sets it apart from most anime. This is an odd Gundam series though and a little bleak for casual viewers. This entry does not shy away from the more brutal aspects of war and is not for the faint of heart. It's an interesting side story in the Universal Century saga and while it is a great movie with a more adult take on the franchise, I don't know if I'd call it required viewing.

2 star rating out of 5



This was one of the worst Gundam stories I've seen. The characters are awful; I don't care about any of them. Gundam is best when it focuses on real, sympathetic people thrown into wartime, not the uberweapons and uberpilots. This one fails at that.

a great addition to the 1 year war in the tradition of the 8th ms team

by -

Great addition to the Gundam universe and worth the wait. This series when i heard it was being to made into a short ova/series i was happy that it followed the tradition of the 8th ms team showing the war from the common soldier and the struggles that war brings on the adults and not just having a wonder kid pilot. I highly suggest checking this out and the second season

jazz and gundam on one

by -

Need to feel the oldskool grit of the messed up side of the Federation and Zeon. this is a great story to see the messed up things that can happen in war. seems like declassified stories from the war of Federation vs Zeon.
