Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt
It is Universal Century 0079, at the end of the One Year War between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon.
The space colonies of Side 4, or Moore, were previously destroyed by a Zeon attack, and many colonists lost their lives. Side 4 became a shoal zone filled with the wreckage of destroyed colonies and warships, lit by constant flashes of lightning due to collisions between electrified debris. It soon came to be known as the "Thunderbolt Sector."
The Moore Brotherhood, an Earth Federation Forces unit made up of surviving citizens from Moore, set out to exterminate the Zeon forces in the Thunderbolt Sector in order to reclaim their homeland. To halt the Federation advance, the Zeon forces deployed their own Living Dead Division, which was established to collect combat data on soldiers with prosthetic limbs.
Io Fleming, though part of the Moore Brotherhood, hates being tied down by his homeland and family history. Daryl Lorenz, having lost his legs in earlier battles, is now an ace sniper of the Living Dead Division. When they confront each other on the battlefield, they will reach a mutual realization.
These two are destined to kill each other.

Seriously this is making me love the series all over again. Nothing has changed, the design and art style is the same as the original series but it's ALL NEW. The key is the characters and the music. The characters have depth and facets, the story is awesome and the music iis NOT the soundtrack ... it's what drives the characters on both sides. It's that personal touch of seeing the war on both sides that at points I forgot who was on which side and got caught up in the personal dramas, love interests and their personal loss. Next year, there IS an awesome line up series coming up but they're going to have to try REALLY hard to beat this one. Old school anime just served this generation their heads with a side order of whoop-ass.
very nice. quite intense & involving.
Until I watched this, I wasn't a Gundam fan. I'm still not.
nice art good and super nice voice over on the eng dub I love how they use music for the best of the best fighters it gives me joy to such good art in two ways
