User Reviews

 
The best of the Gundam movies, and the standard by which the Saga should be measured.
28 March 1999 | by (Santa Ana, California) – See all my reviews

Char's Counterattack is a worthy climax for the saga of Mobile Suit Gundam, as started in 1979's television series. A strong story, which logically concludes the storyline started in the original, is paired off with some of the best Mecha designs ever seen on screen and some seriously good performances by the voice actors who have made these characters into careers over the last 20 years.

Unfortunately, the film also contains the single most annoying character ever devised for Gundam, or even any anime. Quess Paraya, the girl you just want to reach out and strangle.
