I love the Gundam universe. Particularly series that take place in the Universal Century or U.C. for the Otaku. Storyline is amazing. So well constructed. To have any series let alone an OVA to revolve around a war seen thru the eyes of a grade school child. Powerful stuff.
Animation is as tight as the 80's came bring. Better than I expected on DVD quality. Usually OVA's tend to have a little more production value so it's in the right place.
Soundtrack is awesome. Orchestrated synths. So music of the future, especially from Japan.
The series characters are well developed, from young Al, a youngster who only has the war on his mind to Chrisina the Gundam pilot who... Watch and see.
Overall I am extremely overjoyed at this series. A refreshing change in the universe after rewatching G Gundam ( not what I remember in the teen, yikes!). A must for the love of all things Gundam, Mecha, Space Soaps, and as always the Otaku at heart.
