I've seen several science fiction series in my time. All of which boast to be the greatest. "Star Trek," "Buck Rogers," "Battlesar Galactica," "Far Scape," "Stargate S-G1." Fine shows in their own right and I have no problem against them. But there has always been a place for "Mobile Suit Gundam." A 25 year-old franchise that has becomes Japan's most popular science fiction series. Many American fans are familiar with such (lackluster) titles as "Gundam Wing" and "Gundam Seed," but none of those series hold a candle to this addition to the "Gundam Universe," which is quite possibly the best entry into the stories..."Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam."
Produced back in 1985, written and directed by the "Father of Gundam" Yoshiyuki Tomino, "Zeta Gundam" has been hailed by anime nuts as the pinnacle "Gundam" series.
The story takes place in Universal Century 0087 (between "Mobile Suit Gundam 0083" and "Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ"). It has been seven years since the end...
Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta (or Zeta Gundam, as us old anime fogies are more used to calling it) is, without a doubt, one of the best Anime series ever produced. It is certainly one of the best Gundam series ever made, and some (including me) would even argue that it is the _best_ Gundam series ever made.
The series picks up five or six years after the original Mobile Suit Gundam. Most of the main characters from the original series are here, but primarily in supporting roles (including Amuro Ray, MS Gundam's main character) -- except for Char Aznable, who shows up not as a villain but as one of the series' principal heroes. The main character of this series is Camille Bidan, a troubled, headstrong young man who early on steals a Gundam mobile suit and joins AEUG, a pseudo-rebel movement opposing the increasingly heavy-handed and oppressive Earth government. Arrayed against AEUG are an elite force of Earth military mobile suit pilots known as The Titans, who are swiftly...
Getting an accurate read on a show like Zeta can be hard due to all the hype that surrounds it. It has been alternately called the best Gundam series ever and the best anime series ever. I went into this with extremely high expectations due to all the things I had heard and ended up being a little underwhelmed. Having now watched it a second time (something I rarely do so quickly after the first viewing, but found I wanted to with this one because I enjoyed it more than I even realized), I came to a few conclusions. This is not a series that packs in a lot of eye-candy or visual "wow-factor", and, unlike some of the more recent Gundam entries, it doesn't fall back on the "cool-factor" of numerous uber-Gundams to make up for poorly choreographed battle sequences. It is not a show that blows you away from minute one or which will feed an addiction to action. It is, however, a deep, quality piece of work, a stand-out in an already stand-out crowd.
