"Taking place in the year Universal Century 0079 (Same time as the original "Mobile Suit Gundam") Mobile Suit Gundam: 8th Mobile Suit Team tells the story of Shiro Armada and his team of Mobile Suit Pilots, for those wondering 8th MS is a great thing to watch if you are just now getting into Gundam. Now most Gundam series tell the story of a 15 year old Dragged into the war and how he and his friends win the war, 8th ms team is the opposite, it actually documents what the "regular" people were like in the time, they use regular robots that do not have the power to take down an entire fleet, and they fight against other regular robots like "Zaku II's". With that said you get to watch the team do various operations, like freeing a town from the control of ZEON, or doing stuff in the desert. One scene I really like is a scene where they are actually preforming maintence on a robot, scenes like this actually imerese the viewer in the feeling that this is what being a soilder is like.
The characters also have human sides, Shiro is trying to prove himself and keep his dysfunctional team intact, Micheal (Spelling) is suffering the woes of a long distance relationship, and there are many other characters with "human" problems, the characters also are not imortal, there are times when their MS get destroyed, and they get injured. There is also a love story, which I find rather interesting, because it has that whole "Two soilders on different sides fall in love." feel.Would I suguest it? YES! to everyone. 8th ms team really shows what it would be like to be a grunt in the earth federation army, and also has a nice love story in it."
Know the plot??? Here is the Tech side of this DVD!!!

"Now I Know what all you are thinking. Who cares 'bout the plot? Well I will tell you about the technilogical side of "MobileSuit Gundam:The 08th MS Team Vol.2"(I'll call it"MS08v2".
When you first load the cd on your player it will show some of the companies that made it then go to the main menu. When you'r at the menu it will play the clip from the first episode on the disk showing the Apsulus firing at the 08th Team. It also has four icons on the bottom.
1) a movie camera that plays all three episodes.
2) a magnefied glass that is the scene access. Inside that there are five scenes you can play which says "opening, partA, part B, closing and preview". You can also chose witch episode to do that on.
3) a sound icon witch allows you to chose English Dubbed Version, or the original Japanese audio. (NOTE:the music in the dubbed is the same as in the Japanese) You can also chose to put the subtitles on or off. (Note:subtitles only say the Japanese script)
4) a clipboard that acceses the Bounus Materials menu. A)Trailers of BigO, PioltCanidate, AngelLinks, and MobileSuitGundam 0079. B) BonusClips that talk about Colinization, How the "One Year War" started, and about the Zeon and Earth federation Mobile Suit development Project. C) MS Encyclopedia that decribes the federation's Gundam, GM, GM sniper, Bustertank, and The HoverTruck. D) DVD Credits.Overall This series is the best that Gundam, and Anime, has to offer. If you get this DVD I highly (on a scale of one to ten, 30) recommend you buy Volumes 3 and 4, THEY ARE THE BEST. The animation, music, sound effects, plot are all A+ quality! I ordered them on a thursday night and got them the next thursday! Thank you Amazon!!! Once you get those you should look into Gundam 0083! I'm getting that next from ONLY Amazon.com! Peace...ps. I'm not saying not to get it, but, I heard "Miller's Report" (witch is the movie that summurizes the first half of the MS08 seires) got a very low rating from some reviewers."
