This year marks the 40th anniversary of the birth of Gundam. “Mobile Suit Gundam” has been popular since it was released in 1979. Among them, “Mobile Suit Gundam 0079” and “Space Battleship Yamato” and “Evangelion” (EVA) are even more popular. It is also known as the three major milestones of Japanese science fiction animation, and many derivatives such as gunpla and mobile phone customization were born.
The movie “Number One Player” even quoted the original Gundam rx-78-2, which made many fans scream crazy. Some fans bluntly said that if you are a man, you would Kai Zaku. For you, which is the Gundam work that impressed you the most ? why?
What impressed me the most by Old Gundam was “0080” and “08MS”. No matter how profound Tomino’s works are, I still can’t accept a group of riddlers to perform affectionately there. And these two OVAs at least make me feel that the characters are normal people who can communicate. Not to mention 0080, all aspects of quality are very high, and the intention is top-notch. In 08MS, although the plot development is a bit routine, the role modeling is very brilliant. Like his shameless adjutant and bohemian general, he is obviously a role model for routines, but he has made a very three-dimensional role. Such a level is rarely seen in other Gundam works. The most impressive new work is “Thunder Universe”. Tomino’s Gundam animation is very good at showing the tragic results of war, but it is extremely outrageous for the crazy side of war. The character behavior logic cannot convince the public, and the explanation is useless. After the explanation, it only turns from a mental patient to a riddler. Thunder Universe is the only Gundam animation that I have seen that correctly expresses the crazy side of war. Every character has a reasonable performance in the process of going crazy, so that the audience can empathize across the screen, instead of thinking that the character’s brain has something. disease. The pinnacle of the Thunder universe is the first one, and the following plots are all in the comics, and the shortcomings of the comics are precisely the advantages of the first one. The position of the characters has undergone a major change, but the transition becomes very illogical. This manga author is very bad at portraying human emotions, and writes a lot of neuroses like Tomino. Perhaps this defect can be corrected after changing to animation.
