He's building one of the entrances to Jaburo. It's that well done imo. So now Char's taking some time off from the Zeon military to get some work on Earth. I'm pretty sure Mineva must have inherited her awesomeness from both of her parents. I'll admit, I think the explanation of Amuro already knowing of the Gundam's schematics and plans works as a good explanation of why he knows how to pilot it in the first episode of Mobile Suit Gundam. But I won't repeat myself again on what I think about that.
For example, I have little idea why Char went out of his way to save Lalah. Also, we don't get to see Sayla on Side 7. And to top it all off, now she knows that the Zakus are a very formidable weapon against the Federation. Was there anything you were surprised to see or were expecting to see but didn't? We didn't even see him in this series. I wouldn't be surprised if they were at this point in time. Minovsky for their own mobile suit development program. They always thought of themselves as perfect do no wrong.
The on Tem's room seems different than i thought it would be too. Turns out that he was a pretty nasty delinquent before the events of the original series. It seems that Minovsky is defecting from Zeon for some reason. You can't just leave out Bright like that. Finally she's accomplished something of note in this series. Wow, that is a quick proposal from Dozle, you've only met her once and she had you at gunpoint that time.
. They even carried over the manual into other Gundam shows. Too bad he values family loyalty pretty highly, he could have been useful on the other side of the war. That actually would have been nice, getting at least a bit more backstory and background for the people who would be the protagonists of 0079. Read the rules for examples.
And I suppose it does make sense that the Guncannons would get their asses kicked by the Zakus. Where's Bright's time in the Federation academy? Man, it seems like Kycilia has been involved in all sorts of secret missions in the Origin. But it's also even more satisfying to know that a street punk like him more or less ended up becoming the Gundam equivalent of James Bond. I like how the Black Tri-Stars and Char are using the Zaku I. Part of me kinda hopes the production will go for a full-fledged remake of the first series based on Yoshikazu's manga, just like Space Battleship Yamato 2199. Given how important this relationship will be later, it felt severely underdeveloped, especially considering how much Char seems to treasure Lalah later on. Still on this matter, one of the pilots look like.
It's a better explanation, but I'll always love the ridiculousness of Amuro just reading the manual and then piloting the Gundam. Again, i will never understand why Amuro don't like Fran as much as she do with him, even now that there isn't the whole thing about piloting a giant robot, the guy's. Geez, it's no wonder she has to look over Amuro pretty much on a daily basis. How else do you think people would react if you cause a massive space ship accident and start killing all those who are protesting against you? No wonder the Federation was so far behind Zeon in mobile suit technology. For once, the Zakus are victorious.
Is this Gaia and Mash pulling off an early version of the Jet Stream attack? Strange, i always felt like that the cities on the northeast region would be a far better place to build casinos than the north region. Reminded me of Speedwagon and his hat very early on in Part 1. I'm all for Dozle and Zenna becoming a couple. I feel like I'm watching Gundam Seed Destiny. I do think it is a satisfying lead in to 0079. Also, I forgot what a jackass Kai was before he got character development.
And Tem Ray demands an up close seat to the action, wanting to witness the battles between the mobile suits for reasons of research. And since we also get Mineva being born out of it, that's also a big plus to the relationship. Wow, he sliced that guy's head off, just like that! Amuro is always out of it. This is probably the best retcon i ever watched, even it have some weird things like the Guntanks already being a thing,it's still wonderful and i'd recommend it to anyone as introduction to the Gundam franchise any day of the week. Feddies superiors never were the smartest of the bunch. But, if it's a tendon-driven hand? Which means a single Mobile Suit is probably worth millions of dollars going by it alone. Side notes: Degwin, I agree that Gihren and Kycilia are incredibly bloodthirsty.
Not all plots need to revolve around certain characters. You'd think if the Federation knew about mobile suits this earlier they wouldn't have been so behind on them once the One Year War began though. Given how much stuff that he was involved in here in The Origin, it almost comes off as Mary Sue-ish for him to be behind everything. Through the use of superior tactics, design, and skilled pilots, British tanks are shown to be vastly inferior. It's typical Earth Federation arrogance. Not hugely bombastic but works well, showing just how powerful Zeon is. He doesn't need to be made any more important.
We already know that Char is an important player in the fate of both the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation. At least he recognizes their contribution appropriately. Amuro and the rest of the White Base crew less so. But by having it be Jaburo just elevates it to an almost completely silly level. The cadets are all paraded around like heroes in Zeon, but the Federation has a point in considering them rebels who should be punished. Is what you were shown a satisfying lead-in to 0079? I feel bad for her, Amuro doesn't give her nearly enough attention for how much she cares about him.
