Gundam 0083 StarDust Memories Reveiw

YOU LOVE GAINT MECHA ACTION! This is Gundam. MS Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory was the first Gundam feature with action sequences, a stable budget, which sat a high rank topped by only by the conclusion to the UC story, Char’s Counterattack. I can say certainly that is pretty slick, and with fortitude to take it to the bank. Beautiful mecha layouts and design schematics. The well-polished and the intelligence that is reflected in Anavel Gato, the Nightmare of Solomon, was the first of his kind to truly give us a reason to root for the bad guy (Like Anakin didn’t do that in Star wars).

Enter Anavel Gato, Nightmare of Solomon, 2nd from the zeon roster next to The Great Char Aznable. Azabael, had his turn with the throwing a monkey wrench into the gears of the earth federation gearbox Operation Stardust is the next plan and earth is the theater, where Gato plans to hijack a top secret Gundam Designated as the GP02 with a nuclear payload added. There are 13 eps, not going to spoil the surprise, which would be rather rude.

 The Federation is weak handed and does not take of the mantle of Power and Glory. Anavel Gato is your new found sovereign and lord, and a tactical nuke to back up what he says. Push him I dare you to force his hand and show you the true might of Zeon. Of course there is Kou

Enter Kou Uraki, a test pilot stationed at the Australian base where the 2 classified Gundam units GP01 and GP02 are being held for their initial trials. The supporting cast surrounding him, there is the crew of the Albion and one Ms. Nina Purpleton, test lead representative of Anaheim Electronics. There is also no mistake Zeon and Gato definitely make their presence known throughout the series

The Plotline

The Historical here is Circa 0083 is the 3rd Gundam series in actual chronological order, and the 2nd major one, the 1st and through the 0080 OVAs had 2 stories within the same wartime frame. Stardust Memory starts 3 years and change since the Antarctic treaty; Zeon sued for peace and ended the quest for orbital dominance.

Enter Kou Uraki, a test pilot stationed at the Australian base where the 2 classified Gundam units GP01 and GP02 are being held for their initial trials. The supporting cast surrounding him, there is the crew of the Albion and one Ms. Nina Purpleton, test lead representative of Anaheim Electronics. There is also no mistake Zeon and Gato definitely make their presence known throughout the series

I am king of the orbit!

Now while during this stage of Gundam and the series’ development. Lemmy Kilminster explained his hobby of collecting WW2 German Nazi memorabilia and that the bad guys always get the best stuff because you know they’ll be the ones to lose the most. Such as khaki uniforms wi/ kangaroos insignias on the shoulder plates vs. gold eagle emblems and short pleated capes. Generic designed Mobile suits vs.  Zeon issues Zakus and with the Dom. Sheer.

Now, if you’ll take notice, the canon, Giren Zabi was an overzealous upstart of a leader and with the Zeon already guilty of murdering billions of people on the 1st day of the 1Year War. The Zeon put Kou Uraki through the ringer when he attempts to engage them throughout the series. The battles between Kou and Gato are also well orchestrated and designed I love the animation and character creation and the interaction between the cast and the main characters and the mini plots the whole love hate relations that Kou, Nina, and Gato have. Overall this gets an 8.9 out of 10 ranking from me.
