What is it about?
This is how Crunchyroll describes this anime television show:
The tragic story of Char Aznable, the ace pilot known as the Red Comet, and his sister Sayla Mass unfolds against the backdrop of the events leading to the One Year War.
The Zabi family’s rise to power, the birth of the Principality of Zeon, the early days of famous aces such as Ramba Ral and the Black Tri-Stars, the development of the revolutionary new weapon known as the mobile suit, and the road to war against the Earth Federation are all depicted onscreen for the first time.
My brother GC and I watched this on Toonami.
This anime started in a way that made you feel that you had missed part of it so there was a bit of a struggle throughout it to try to make sense of all the factions and politics et cetera that were never explained well enough.
This was better than Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (well what I saw of it at least because I gave up on it) but not better than Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, and it ended quicker than I thought that it would.
