I'm also giving this 5/5 stars due to the quality of the format, audio, and video quality. Being able to watch this classic in such high-definition is truly worth the price.
The final episodes are something special, because I never saw the last 3 episodes air in the US (possibly due to content or time schedule for the network), and until now it was only the Trilogy that had the last parts.
Considering that older version on DVD is out of print, this was the best choice for me. Yes, this new version also has a DVD format, but it seemed to make more sense in my case to get the best quality available at the time of release. My hope is that other series following will be released in BluRay format such as 08th MS Team, 0080 War in the Pocket, 0083 Stardust Memory, and Zeta Gundam which are all out of DVD print now.
I received my copy two weeks ago, so here is my review!
The video quality is amazing! This is the first time the series is available in high-definition in North America. The colors are vibrant, the image is pretty smooth, as it has been DNR'd, but over all it's a 8.5/10)
No, this is no an upscale, this is an all-new transfer from the 33MM film prints done in Japan. The Japanese released the complete series on 9 discs(about 5-6 episodes per disc), and it seems like Sunrise will be releasing it on 4 discs(about 10-11 episodes per disc) for North America. I compared by Japanese box set to this version and I couldn't see any differences in compression or any artifacts introduced. I can't complain thought! The Japanese set was about 500-600 dollars, while the USA version will end up being under $100 dollars for the complete series( although the USA version is a "budget" release, the quality is identical to its Japanese counterpart)...
Before Wing, Seed, and G Gundam there was mobile suit Gundam that started it all and It came in good condition it's a great series to get if your a fan of Gundam buy it or if your new to the Gundam franchise this is a good chance to get the first Gundam series. I'm Glad to see a Gundam series to be on blu ray in the United States it kinda hard to get Gundam on DVD these days. if your looking for a anime I recommend this even though it was made in the late 70's it still good the Gundam series that started it all. Can't wait until collection 2 comes on this December so enjoy this series and please note that this was made in the late 70's and it was dub in the late 90's early 2000's but I still recommend you buying this and see how the Gundam franchise started.
