In year 0079 of the Universal Century, the Earth Federation initiates Operation Odessa—a full-scale assault to retake a major Ukrainian city from the Principality of Zeon. It is a success, and the remaining Zeon forces scatter across the globe. The Earth Federation gains the upper hand in the One Year War and deploys its ground troops around the planet to hunt down the stragglers. As part of the deployments, Ensign Shiro Amada is transferred to Southeast Asia to take command of the 08th MS Team—a special squadron of RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type pilots. In their first guerilla operation, Shiro's team is tasked with distracting the Zeon forces while Federation ground troops locate a mysterious new Zeon weapon. Everything goes according to plan until Shiro runs into Aina Sahalin, an ace Zeon pilot he met in an earlier battle, during a skirmish. Their reunion weakens his resolve to continue fighting, and now the young commander Shiro must prove his loyalty to the Federation—or be branded a traitor.

Real Robot heaven. It has some cheesy moments, but the great characters, fantastic fights, and great atmosphere make up for it in spades.


Romeo and Juliet, except with mechs


Replace the character study on the effects of war on a single man from ‘Apocalypse Now’ with ‘Romeo and Juliet’, and you have this anime.


Cheesy romance and beautifully animated battles create a mecha show with both character drama and spectacle. A classic entry.


Aesthetically Pleasing Gundam


A series with a lot of heart, a excellent war show that can appeal people both familiar and not with the source material.


Romeo and Julia + Gundam really.
