    Worth the watch for Gundam fans, newcomers may get a little lost
    This is the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin OVA series re-packaged as a TV show, which I've already seen in it's entirety. In my opinion, it's well worth the watch for gundam fans, but newcomers might get a little lost or find it boring. It's fairly light on the action, being primarily focused on the political intrigue and events that lead up to the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079. The writers ...

    THIS IS REALLY GOOD!
    The animation is great and would make the show for fans, I always wanted to get into Gundam and this came up so we decided to give it a shot. Well worth your time and praise, They have a retro new feel with effects and coloring from the 80s and 90s , with animation almost Ghibli inspired. Anyone rating lower than 3 stars is a goof.

    Worth watching for the art
    I'm not much of a Gundam fan, but the art is wayy beyond my expectations and really adds to the characters and their acting. It's also a pretty fast moving plot so far.

    This is very worth watching if you don't mind shows with some political intrigue and a focus on character psychology.

    Basically the OVA's in a bite sized formula
    This series is based on the OVA series. The OVA series is primary a retelling, a prequel and an expansion of the original and first Gundam, Gundam 0079. More so just edited into 20 minute bit sized episodes to fit with TV programming. In terms of new content for the TV series, so far, none, but if this is your first interaction with "The Origin" adaptation, interested in what content material they ...

    A definite need to get into the Gundam universe!
    As someone who's grown up with Gundam, but never known how or where to start, this has been a fantastic ride. I finally understand how and why everything is set up the way it is. Watching Char progress and evolve throughout the show is a treat as well. If you've never seen Gundam, or want to find a good place to start, or just want to go back to its beginnings this is the show!

  • Really nice introduction to Gundam
    This series opens many possibilityes for you to enjoy other Gundam series.

    Here you have the chance to appreciate how the Mobile Suit technology evolved and how the next units came to be, along with a clear understanding of the conflict between earth and the space colonies.

    I love what they did with Origin and Unicorn, I would have loved for this to end with

  • Never had interest in Gundam, now I'm hooked!
    I had never seen any Gundam series before this and I never wanted to since Mecha anime weren't really my thing. However now I've watched about 90 episodes of the older series from the 70s and 80s, and am excited to continue. This is a very good place for new Gundam viewers to start, especially if they aren't sure they'll like it. The story is interesting, characters are great, and the animation is ...

  • Not a Great Watch for Gundam Newcomers!
    I hadn't watched any Gundam before, but Mother's Basement said this would still be a good watch. The characters are great! But I missed out on what made their stories interesting. The animation always seeks to be dynamic (but those necks are so long!), creating an lively feel for the characters.

    All in all I appreciated it, but didn't enjoy it, leading to a low score.

  • Well done prequel. Highly recommended for Gundam fans.
    I'm not sure if you should watch this before the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 series. It can be a bit slow for Gundam newcomers, but for those who are familiar with the series, I think this story was well done. Provides a lot of back story for various characters of the original series. Not a lot of huge robot battles because the part of the story is the creation of the mobile suits. ...

  • Retells Gundam storyline so well
    Prefect retelling of the old story from a new MC. Best way for new people to get into the gundam series and people who already watch the original series back in 1980 because of the fresh point of view from Chair with beautiful art style and animation.
