Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin vol. 1 review

Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin vol. 1 review Story and Art by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Original Story by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hajime Yatate, Mechanical Design by Kunio iwate

When colony Side 7 is attacked by Char it is up to Amuro to pilot the technology called a Gundam against the Zeon invaders. As the battle unfolds Amuro will have to come face to face with Char. Will Amuro win… or will he lose?

Serialized in the shonen (boys’) comic anthology Gundam Ace, Origin is an incredible science fiction epic. The book is a gorgeous hardcover with high quality paper. The story itself is impossible to put down once started. The pace is quick and the action is fierce.

If there is one fault in this book it is the protagonist who is a generally difficult character to sympathize with. The rest of the cast is much easier to relate to. The books also has excellent pacing never once dragging in it’s over 440 pages. Overall Gundam the Origin is an excellent book well worth your time and money. I cannot recommend this book enough!   

Rating: 8/10

Gundam the origin vol. 1 is available in print in North America from Vertical Inc.
