The show isn’t chronological, so this 13-episode release bridges Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. It’s a giant robot action show with some romance.

Uh huh is a 13 episode ov a. And like I said, it's a good bridging series between. And you could go as far to say it's an essential bridging series between, um Mobile suit, Big Daddy Gundam and Zeta Gundam. And you know what? Let me look something out real quick. I'm gonna just do it right now because I'm in front of my computer Mobile suit, Gundam, Zeta and, uh, my anime list. We're going to look at what year? Because mobile suit Zeta actually came out before this one. So in my last podcast, I was telling you guys how, um the way the Universal Century works is that if you want to watch it in order, you're gonna watch really, really new series, then a really old series and then some older movies and such. And then the newer series, like you're jumping back between the eighties literally from your jumping back from the 2000 like 16. Then you jumped in 1979. Then you jump to the nineties, and then you jump back to the eighties again. So you're literally gonna be jumping back and fourth in, like in terms of quality and artwork and all that kind of stuff. But the story if you want to get in order, you're just gonna have to go back and watch easier this series in the timeline. If it says double 0 79 then you start with that, then you go to double 80. Then you go to double 83 and so on. So forth. And I think there was a double 0 81 I think. Yeah, I think so. Anyway, like I said, this is I watched my marathon that all in the order. I don't remember all that crap, but I did write the review, so I'm just dusting off. But so this is the the ideal bridging series between Big Daddy 1979 and then the next major series called Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, which, in my opinion, is the best Gundam in the universal century. By far it's just my favorite. And then my second favorite is the second half of Zeta. But because the or double data, because the first half inches, some burning the diners are bullcrap, which Oh, man, I can't wait to do that review. That was a bull crap anyway, so it's a step up and obviously jumping from what, 1979. And then let me go. Go late again. Mobile suit. Gonda. I'm sorry. I'm just too lazy to do any cuts. Stardust memory. My animal is Yeah, stuff. Okay, 1991. So basically, you jump from 1979. Then you watch a couple of other movies, then you jump to this was in 1991 to 1992 then to watch Zeta, you jumped back to 1995 18 1985 against 1985. So, you know, it's just like I said, you're gonna see a jump in quality. You're gonna see a jumping animation. You're gonna see different styles. And it's really cool. It doesn't. You're nothing is lost by the fact that these come out in different years and you go back and you see the story. And what's really cool is that the people who watch them in order, which will be our parents because we're too young for that. I imagine most people listen to me. I wasn't born in 1979. Uh, the people who watched it when it first came out like they never knew what happened in between this and that. It's like this is how it was at the end of mobile suit Big Daddy Gundam and this is how it is and say the Gundam. This story here tells you how things came to be. Uh, yeah, it's pretty cool. It's pretty cool. I like that. But so, yeah, you get your nineties artwork, which I'm always a fan of nineties artwork. You get a really cool, just kind of rocking soundtrack rock music. And it's kind of this kind of cheesy. A little bit, but not really. It's pretty cool. If it's the series, it's really cool. Um, and of course, we get a lot of action, like with any Gundam series, if you like robots shooting at each other and apparently in this one, but not apparently, this one has a nuke in it, so that's pretty cool. It's not like the nuking each other the whole series, even though I think he should have new I think he shot Nuke at the end. I don't remember if he shouted during the series kind of review Is this? I don't remember what happened in the series. I'm trying to review this mug, but, um but yeah, yeah, uh, you know, uh, with with any Gundam series, you can get the giant robot on robot boning action because I'm trying to get a hint. I reference in here somewhere, and just I just can't I just can't. And, um, if any Gundam series you can get some romance up in this mug. You know, there's some romance up in here. I don't remember who, and I didn't write down who it was. I just know that there was some romance up in this mug, you know, ain't no anti action, but, you know, romance. So there you go. Of course, character development is really done. Co co you, Rocky or whatever his name is pretty sure I didn't butcher that name, But you know the protagonist, he's just a normal guy who, you know, he's a completely green movie. He's just he starts off like little to no experience. And by the time he gets to the end of the series, he's just as harden, you know, battle hardened, um, mobile suit pilot. And he he's the guy who jumps into the next Gundam. He like he doesn't just jump into a mobile suit. He jumps into a Gundam. Okay, so you know, by the time he's ready for that, by the time we get to the end of the series, all 13 episodes, he goes from complete new to just freaking hardcore one shotting, you know, other mobile suits and stuff. So this guy is just It's always good to see that the writing just maintains its quality. No matter what series you watch, it's set for Gundam Unicorn, which I will get to that. It was just confusing. I'm sorry. I don't care what people ready that that animate. But I hated Gundam Unicorn. It was any about to lose, like so many listeners. Anyway, Um, what else I got to say about this mess? Um, just overall, it was just It's just a It's a good series. It's short and sweet. It bridges the gap between one major series to the other and tells a story that, um it tells it from the perspective of a normal soldier like, I don't think co Iraqi was a new type, which normally new types of the guys there, like an evolved version of humanity and when they get into a gun. Them They can like sense when someone's behind them so they can do like a 3 60 no scoped and take them out without ever seeing them. There's like, Oh, I sense it. They're kind of like that. I like jelly, but with mobile suits. Okay, uh, they can sense danger. They can react faster. They can do things that normal people can't do. I don't think and take this with a grain of salt, because I don't remember. But I don't think Cory Iraqi was a new type. He was just a normal guy thrust into the situation, and he was the only guy for the job to take and pilot this Gundam.
