After the One Year War and subsequent wars with the last renmants of the Duchy of Zeon, the Earth Federation formed a special military force to prevent space colonies from revolting against the Federation. Thus, the Titans were born. Eight years have passed since the end of the One Year War and now the tables have turned. The once good Earth Federation is now more corrupt than ever and will turn the other way even when its special force, the Titans, commit atrocities like gassing millions of civilians to their deaths. Because of this abuse of authority the Anti-Earth United Government (AEUG) is formed from the breaking off of many Federation politicians and military who oppose the Titans, and they will ally with former members of the Duchy of Zeon, who dislike the oppresion and tyranny towards the space colonies.

The melodies of the TV series' two opening themes and sole ending theme were written by American pop singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka. "Zeta - Toki wo Koete" was based upon the song "Better Days are Coming" from Sedaka's 1972 album 'Solitaire,' while "Hoshizora no Believe" was adapted from the song "Bad and Beautiful" from the 1976 album 'Steppin' Out.' Additionally, "Mizu no Hoshi e Ai wo Komete" was derived from an unreleased song entitled "For Us to Decide".

In Z Gundam, which is a major sequel to the original Gundam, tells the story of the conflict between A.E.U.G.(the rebels) and the corrupted and ruthless Titans (a special branch of the Earth Federation). The story focuses on a young boy named Kamiyu Vidan (around 17), who, by accident, was pulled into the war between A.E.U.G. and Titans. Kamiyu turns out to be a natural ace pilot, and so under Quattro Bajina of the A.E.U.G (whose real name is Char Aznable) he changes from an average civilian boy to a seasoned soldier. In the course of the story, he is joined by Titan-turned-AEUG pilot Emma Sheen, his beautiful and tragic girlfriend Four Murasame, his childhood friend Fa Yuiri, the ace pilot Amuro Ray, battleship captain Bright Noah, and many other characters from the First Gundam will also make cameo appearances in Z Gundam.
