Day 160/365

Char Aznable

From the anime Mobile Suit Gundam, Char Aznable is known as the "Red Comet" for his high-speed attack tactics and is the most famous of Zeon's ace mobile suit pilot. He wears a mask and has the goal of defeating all of the Federation along with settling a few scores along the way.

Why I like him: That mask was awesome. Completely see where the Zechs inspiration came from. ^_^ He was a great nemesis for Amuro Ray too. I really enjoyed watching him to see what exactly would happen. A little more interesting than Amuro Ray was in my opinion.

Why I hate him: Not so much hate as there was cheese involved with his character honestly.

Overall: Being the very first gundam series to come out I see lots of relations and lots of improvements in the series that came later. They certainly had a good thing going with this first series and I think it just got better and better. Onto MS Team I go ^_^"

  1. I loved Char’s vendetta in the original series, it was a beautiful thing to behold. And it was also interesting how he regretted part of it (killing Garma) at the end, making him a more convincing and well rounded character. I liked him a lot in Zeta Gundam too, though there are things I won’t spoil for you that made me hate him later on. He is after all, a dirty Zeke.

    Good, good, you’re watching UC Gundam in in-universe chronological order. I highly recommend it that way.

  3. In my view it’s always more satisfying to watch a franchise in in-universe chronological order. The political-military situation in Zeta Gundam would have felt really weird to transition into straight from MS Gundam without 0083 to help explain what happened in between. It’s not unbelievable, but 0083 gives it the context so you don’t just feel like they came up with a new storyline for 7 years in the future without explaining the why of it.

    But when the time comes, watch ZZ Gundam at your own risk. It’s so bad, the Zeta Gundam movies basically wrote it out of the story.
