Storyline

During the One Year War of UC 0079, A young Earth Federation Lieutenant named Shiro Amada is sent to Earth to lead a squadron of Gundam mobile suits in Southeast Asia to fight the Duchy of Zeon's forces. Along the way, he and his rag-tag 08th Mobile Suit Team discover that Zeon has been testing a new secret weapon capable enough to destroy the Federation's headquarters in South America and possibly give the Zeons an edge in the war. Shiro unknowingly meets the pilot of the Zeon secret weapon, Aina Sahalin. Together they discover that both sides fighting the war are not any better or any worse than the other.

the Second Greatest Gundam series
23 September 2000 | by SargonarhesSee all my reviews

This Gundam series only follows Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. The story takes place during the same time line as the original Gundam in the year U.C. 0079 the time of the One year war, but the mobile suits are designed as new models are and are as a result look more articulate. The Hero of the story is a young Lt. Shiro Amada, who may lack any real combat experience but makes up for it with creativity and effort.

His life get complicated when he meets Aina Sahalin a Jion ace pilot (the enemy), the to end up falling in love and begin to change their attitudes about the war around them. The other cast of characters in the story are not there for background either, every one in this story has a history to them.

There is also another Ace mobile suit pilot in this series that can be added into the pantheon of ace mobile suit pilots. Right up there with Char Aznable and Anavel Gato is Norris Packard, not the top villain in this series, but his presence give the 8th mobile suit team a hard fight. 3 of them against Norris and his single MS-07B Gouf custom mobile suit.

In conclusion This Gundam along with Stardust Memory is a must see!!
