    The last volume ended by shedding a whole lot of light on the origin stories of Char Aznable, or rather Casval Rem Deikun, and Sayla Mass, or Artesia Som Deikun, and the origins of Mobile Suit technology. This volume bridges the gap between then and the very beginning of where Mobile Suit Gundam started, showing the reader the ascent of Char in the Zeon ranks and his pivotal role in the conflict between the Federation and the Colonies.

This volume bridges the gap between then and the very beginning of where Mobile Suit Gundam started, showing the reader the ascent of Char in the Zeon ranks and his pivotal role in the conflict between the Federation and the Colonies. It's very well paced and balanced, with about as many space battles as there are dramatic scenes between the humans in these gargantuan war machines and behind the socio-political curtain. Yasuhiko does very well to show the motivations of everyone in the war, even those who never really got much time in the first few volumes, like Amuro Ray's father, Dr. Ray and the various Zabi spawn. A notable relationship in this volume is that between Char and Garma Zabi, where the former's delicate manipulation of the latter underscores how dangerous Char was in the very beginning of the conflict. That said, it's a lot of backstory and only backstory. I'd honestly like to see what's happening to the cast and crew of White Base after the events of volume five! All in all, it's a marvelous read, doing a terrific job of continuing the Mobile Suit Gundam saga.

    More Char backstory in this volume, which focuses on him being in the military academy and his relationship with Garma. We also get backstory on the creation of the Mobile Suits as well as the start of the war. Real great volume! Like I said before, Char is a completely different character to me now. I thought Char was interesting before, but now he's the character I'm most excited to see! The next volume should take us back to the present so I'm excited to see where the story will go, and the More Char backstory in this volume, which focuses on him being in the military academy and his relationship with Garma.

    Volume 8, in short, is a reminder of in order to know where you are going, you have to know where you have been. Given that it has been a while since I dove into Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's, "Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin" series, I felt that I had forgotten key events, names, and situations that would help the flow of the story and series overall. Nevertheless, the choice of where to start or pick up the plot in Volume 6 not only helped to reroute my memory as to who is who, and where is where, in Volume 8, in short, is a reminder of in order to know where you are going, you have to know where you have been.

Nevertheless, the choice of where to start or pick up the plot in Volume 6 not only helped to reroute my memory as to who is who, and where is where, in this universe, but to also understand why things are the way that they are. Without too much spoiling of the events in this portion of the series, we find out more of the individual histories of those involved with the war between Zeon and the Federation. I enjoyed how the final chapters gave a bittersweet account of the key players up to this point, and showed more of their humanity when often we see their professional facades. I know based on my retention of the series that watching the anime will help fill in the spaces that are missing or empty, and I plan to do as much of that as possible while waiting for Volumes 7 and 8 to arrive!

    The Origins 6th installment continues to be nothing short of a vivid and stunning telling of the events leading directly up to the beginning of the One Year War. Full of gorgeous illustrations and a strong grasp on the plotting of events as well as depictions of its characters (namely giving more dynamic to Char and Amuro than youd expect from a book focusing on the history leading into the One Year War), Volume VI is another solid entry in this series that I didnt want to put down even after I The Origin’s 6th installment continues to be nothing short of a vivid and stunning telling of the events leading directly up to the beginning of the One Year War.

    Still think this prequel stuff is pointless and often undermines the characters, but this one was at least pretty gripping. Only one more volume until I get back to the superb retelling of the original series that I came here for.

    I wrote a more comprehensive review of the first volume here. This is the second volume in the flashback arc, which focuses quite a bit on Char on his rise to power, including his relationship with Garma, which only seems sadder for Garma in retrospect. Theres a lot of development for the whole Zabi family, actually, as well as for Dr. Ray on the Federation side of things. Its also an introduction and backstory for Lalah, which I was not expecting and was very excited about! It also does quite a I wrote a more comprehensive review of the first volume here.

It also does quite a bit to highlight how absolutely savage Char can be in his quest for revenge, which in turn does a lot to explain his relationship with his sister. And how savage the Zabis themselves can be - the part with Kycilia and her spy was brilliantly done. Also, again in this volume we get much more information on the history involved in the Gundam universe, which is always fun to read and gives an added depth to the rest of the series.

    This volume continues to fill the backstory for the original Gundam TV series. The first section depicts Char and Garma as cadets at the Zeon military academy, and Char's first encounter with power politics as the colonies begin their bid for independence from Earth. The second half of the volume shows the run up to the One Year War. The politics are still a bit sketchy, but the development of mobile suits in Zeon and the Federation gets a lot of details. Of course, in that regard, Origin This volume continues to fill the backstory for the original Gundam TV series.

Of course, in that regard, Origin engages in some revisionist history-- the Guncannon and Guntank are not part of the Gundam V Project, they are early unsucessful attempt by the Federation to catch up to Zeon's level of suit technology. Yet another version of the Gundam timeline...

    The story continues into Char's past as he climbs the ranks as a cadet and befriends Garma. His strategy is set. Since we know where the story is going, it makes him a very conniving character. Garma is a soft, scared pretty boy. They are my favorite roomies! The art is ridiculously perfect in these books. The color pages are lovely and generous. This series is amazing.

    All I can say is that Char is so gar when he puts on his Miami Vice style sunglasses and fights Arab gamblers. I have no idea what that has to do with the Zeon secession movement, the development of Mobile Suits, or the deteriorating political relationship between Earth and the colonies, but man it is awesome.

    Really good volume. Interesting how Char is actually less sociopathic compared to his counterpart in the recent animated adaptation of this volume- Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin III - The Dawn of Rebellion. The bits with Amuro and his friends being affected by the upcoming war were good too.

    The second volume to explore the events leading up to the One Year War portrayed in the original anime. These prequel stories are really filling in a lot of the background of both the political situation and the characters, and are the best part of the series so far.
