Mobile Suit Gundam

Mobile Suit Gundam (Kidou Senshi Gundam, also known as Gundam 0079 or First Gundam) was director Yoshiyuki Tomino's seminal mecha anime series. First broadcast in 1979, MS Gundam was the first anime series that treated its giant mecha as military machines and weapons of war, in contrast to the "super robo" anime such as Mazinger that had come before it.

The original anime consisted of 43 episodes, and the whole series was condensed, with additional footage, into three movies.

But on their tail is the legendary Zeon ace pilot, Char Aznable who has his own agenda...
