Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 Movie Trilogy

Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 Movie I

Recently watched all 3 Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 movies over 3 weekend, one each Sunday, didn't really want to watch the entire 49 episodes or the original.

Thought they great great and can see why gundam is adored so much, this stuff is good. Surprised bu all the death in them, did not really expect so much to be in an anime from 1979 but like macross ahead of its time being the first real robot show.

Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 Movie II

Funny that the first Universal Century i watched was F91, being the about 100 years away in the U.C. so far, didn't really research enough before i watched that and now see lot of comparisons between 0079 and F91, group of kids fighting in a war, parent originallay helped build the gundam, girl who really belongs to the enemy.

Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 Movie III

Lots of great battle and the animation was really quite good for being 30 years old, don't know if when the edited the movies together the best parts where chosen but all the essential parts seem to be included from what ive read.

For some reason dislike the design of White Base, thought it really didn't look like it could work and was way too brightly coloured, probable because of the animation style at the time of have really colourful mecha.

This was a awesome moment, super spoiler here. This is dubbed but i watched it subbed. Got the box set of 3 movies for a decent price because of the 30th anniversary.

When i was a kid i really believed that i would be living in one of those space colonies which i use to look at in books.

I love the Gundam 0079 movie trilogy. Love Gundam F91 too. Both right up there with Macross Do You Remember Love as my favorite animes of all time.

When Japanese fans refer to "First Gundam", 9 out of 10 times, they're talking about the 0079 movie trilogy.

Now that you've seen the anime, you can now enjoy the 3D version. :P
