Plot Summary


Federation troops and Zeon forces carry out a fierce battle in the Thunderbolt Sector in what was once Side 4 "Mua". The Thunderbolt Sector is a shoal zone composed of the debris of destroyed space colonies, named for the electrical discharges from the metal debris. MS pilot Io Flemming is among the Federation soldiers who are dispatched to the area, where Zeon sniper Daryl Lorenz awaits them on the battlefield.


Episode 1 Thoughts

First episode is out now and is subbed. About 18 minutes long.

First few minutes started out with some classic music. What I really liked is how the episode it combined the action, battle, and with jazz beat music for some storytelling. There's action in space and the sniper gunfire in space was neat to see.

Darryl is a pretty damn good sharpshooter and proves it when he downed a number of enemy units.
There's 3 other episodes so I guess we'll see how the other cast/crew are with their skills. Somewhat surprised by the amount of violence in this. Oh and Io is a badass. His rivalry with Darryl really brings excitement to this show.

Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt ONA EP 1 / 4 EPS Total

Thanks Sunrtise for the Old Style Look

BTW written by Yasuo Ohtagaki who wrote Moonlight Mile One of the best raw Space animes ever done. He actuall put it on hold to write this!

But this is in your face hip cool action packed Gundham I like Ensign Io and his love of Jazz using Drum sticks to practice piloting ! This is very dark / violent but with an edge !

Daryl Lorenz is an excellent sniper but Io takes out a lot i his comrades and are bitter enemies!

Io / Darryl

Episode 1

Hey, you know what? This was badass!

First off Jazz? Hell Yeah! I mean, if my enemy was after me and I was going to be killed no matter what, then I wouldn't mind dying to some Jazz, haha! lo and Daryl seem to be interesting characters and I like how the show is showing both sides instead of just one. The art has that Seinen feel to it, which works for this series and the animation is fluid!

Is this just a OVA special? If not, what's the release schedule for this series because I am diggin' it! Ready for more!
