Movie Reviews

Superb Gundam
Andrew S. Burns | 04/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is my first time experiencing the original gundam. It is a superb anime to buy if a fan of gundam. This volume shows how it begun. For an old anime it did great on graphics and sound quality. Recommend this highly to anyone."
The one to show the anime haters in your life

"The One year War of The Gundam series is probably the most epic event in anime

this is the series to show ppl who don't get why you like anime if they still don't get it then I bet there movie collection includes battlefield earth and Gili

this series has everything love, mystery, war, death, revenge, heroism, and GIANT FRAKING ROBOTS!

you really care for these characters and when events happen to them you feel it like your part of the crew

while Seed tells basically the same story you can't beat the original"
Mobile Suit Gundam... hmm, not bad...

"Vol. 1 The Battle Begins, the intro to what started the Real Robot mecha genre and essentially revolutionized today's anime, and after witnessing firsthand the first five eps, it was worth it.

What I(and probably everyone) first noticed was the animation. I was "oh crap, maybe not so good..." but after seeing some explosions, not to mention the sound effects to them, my opinion was completely changed, almost instantanously! The graphics are like 80's classic Transformers, and since I loved Transformers, I didn't mind the dub at all(I already don't mind dubs too much...).

Speaking of, there is no sub, both literal subtitles AND jap audio. Some might be driven away by this, but I say suck it up, and watch the darn classic! The only known voice actor I can identify is veteran Brad Swaile of Light from Death Note. Amuro and Brad can almost be one person, and it makes sense how it is this series that made him famous. Not just Amuro though, everyone have excellent performances, including Char and Bright. The dub is no choice, so if you absolutely hate dub, just sit and watch and it will just grow on you.

The story is also unique. Amuro, one of the most well known mecha pilots, is only a lowly 15-year old, who took the Gundam as a necessity, not for glory, or proof of existance. To be honest, they created a good scenario for him learning to control it. And his first battle was both impressive, and spectacular.

I won't reveal much else about the vol.(I myself should buy this, Zeta, and Char Counter), but only that as far as classics go, Gundam is fun, and alluring. Buy Mobile Suit Gundam now!"
