    The beggining of an era
    Mobile Suit Gundam is the first serious mech anime to do well not only in japan but across the globe. Its predecessors like Getter Robo, Space Runaway Ideon, and Mazinger Z, while all fine animes, did not have the cultural impact as Gundam. From this series has 6 distinct timelines are created and over 25 animes, ovas, and movies have been created because of this show. Gundam is by far one of the ...

    This Show Delivers on More Levels Then Most Anime Now A Days
    I am one to say that in many ways that things that we look fondly upon through nostalgia is often proved wrong when we look at it later through life, Mobile Suit Gundam (or Gundam 0079) is an example of when something stands the test of time and proves that what can make or break a anime is the characters. Characters in Gundam show dynamic levels of development, charisma, and overall really easy ...

    It may not be perfect, but it really is.
    Due to over population mankind leave Earth to settle in the stars in giant man-made colonies called: Sides. The year is Universal Century 0079. The space city of side 3, the colony furthest from the earth, declared itself the Principality of Zeon and initiated a war........blah, blah, blah. To be honest if you don't know this part then in some form or another you have failed yourself as an anime ...

    The greatest gundam series ever made
    The storyline is beyond anything that a fan could ask for. The story goes off in one direction and that direction as a fan is more then enough. But the story then takes a twist giving more then what is asked of it. The story also leads into squeals which are amazing. The characters through the story are developing and are indepth characters that one can relate to. The music is good and goes well ...

    A great start to a fantastic franchise
    Mobile Suit Gundam or Gundam 0079 a classic anime dating all the way back to 1979 and early 1980, the series dripping with old school futuristic nostalgia starts telling us the tale of Armuro Ray & the original Gundam RX-78-2 and the smart cunning and impressive antagonist Char Aznable and his Zaku "The Red Comet". If your looking to get into Gundam this is the place to start it will give you the ...

    Superior story telling
    While the animation's look is outdated by today's standards, the story is still a lot better than a lot of other mecha shows(I'm looking at you Neon Genesis Evangelion) out now. Also this the template from which all other Gundam shows pretty much take their cues from.

    A trend setter for the time.
    What can be said about Mobile Suit Gundam that hasn’t already been said by the fans of the show for over decades of time. Not only spawning one of the most successful franchise of anime, toys, and games, but also showing a 70’s japan how an anime could have an engaging story for both kids and adults. In my opinion, during this era of anime is when both animators and story writers threw off their ...

  • Original Gundam(IT'S O.G)
    For those who've not seen OG Gundam, you're missing out.
    If you find yourself unable to get into Gundam as a whole, this is where you'll be able to jump in, as no other Gundam series as such a free and powerful opening episode.

    For the Plot, you've got a war breaking out between the Earth Federation(Government) and the Principality of Zeon(Space Nazi's...from Space) The Space Nazi's want ...

  • The original "Real Robot" series that started a legacy
    This is it.

    The original show that started the "Real Robot" genre of Anime. One of the greatest Science Fiction stories ever told.

    Without this groundbreaking series modern anime as we know t would not exist.

    The animation quality is great for the time period, with moody colors and shading not used in most cartoons or anime of the period. The mechanical designs are also great .The series ...
