Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam uses a similar plot structure as the original Mobile Suit Gundam, but the story is crafted with the hands of experience and maturity. Gone are the loose strings and redundant plot devices. The show has a tight script helmed by a dynamic cast. The characters are both calculating and political, but they are hindered by emotions. They know what they want and how to get it, but they never are truly satisfied. As circumstances change, people die, moral stigmas emerge and characters lose sight of their initial goals and unwittingly become pawns of other, more ambitious individuals. The continuous, almost episodic, string of fights set the stage for the all this drama to play out. Every self-respecting fan of the mecha genre should watch this anime. Heck, I would also give an enthusiastic “a-okay” to those impartial or even slightly adverse to the genre. It is a classic that sparked a phenomenon that is still burning strong. For those still skeptical because of the show’s age, I must remind you that all great stories are timeless and Zeta Gundam is no exception. One of the Greatest Universal Century Timeline Stories :D
