Mobile Suit Gundam - Char's Counterattack

Quality movie with lots of sweet mecha action, which i's like. This was what i though was meant to be the last Universal Century stories but just discovered Victory Gundam which i going to leave for some time, think ive gundam overloaded (except Unicorn, got to watch that asap)

Defiantly would have been better as a TV series, though of course then the animation would not have been so good. I think it would have been better because before all of Tomino's gundam series have been around the 50 episode mark which give alot of time to discover the characters and plot line which i think there seemed to be quite a few plot holes in this. Unlike the movie which introduces new one which only appear for a relatively short period of time, What happened to Amuro's fear of space from Zeta Gundam, shame we never got to see him over coming that on screen.

Will be modelling Char's Sazabi, that is one beautiful looking mobile suit and its huge!

This is indeed an OVA that left Gundam fans with deep impression with awesome MS design and a strong storyboard that till today, Unicorn Gundam anime continue from there and takes the basic mecha design concept like Jegan, ReGz and Sazabi. In Char's Counter attack, we get to see the matured Amuro Ray and his complex relationship with Char Aznable. This is really the final showdown of the two heroes.
