I try to be conscious that Gundam 0079 is more than 30 years old and because of that, the animation, character development and plot are not the best. I am also aware that Yoshiyuki Tomino had to curtail aspects of the series because he ran out of funding. Despite these shortcomings, Tomino and his staff managed to create an interesting anime, and set the foundation for future series.
Another thing I discovered from rewatching Gundam is the subtle evolution of Char's personality towards the end of the series. Char Aznable is probably my most admired and respected character from the Gundam universe and the world of anime in general. I like Char the most in Gundam Z because he was very calm and collected. However, the Char in Char's Counterattack is puzzling. But after watching the original Gundam, I have a better idea of why Char changed over time.
Next week I am not sure if I will blog anything. I am planning to watch Sora Kake Girl (The Girl Who Leapt Through Space). If something from this series sparks a deep thought, I will share it. Happy anime watching!
