Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory

After watching the original series and then the Thunderbolt series, I decided to watch this OVA series that came out in the early 90s. As the number in the title suggests, it takes place 3 years after the 1-year-war of the original series, and sets up what we end up seeing more of in the Zeta Gundam series (with the rebirth of the conflict). It’s especially enjoyable for the quality of the animation, and the action sequences are quite well done. In terms of the story and the characters, it has its ups and downs, with the most interesting bits coming towards the end, when we find out what this Zeon resurgence is all about.
