Watch Mobile Suit Gundam

Mobile Suit Gundam is Japanese anime, or animation, television show. It was one of the first and most popular of the mecha, or giant robot, animes, and helped to bring to light an entirely new genre. The show's plot centers around a fight that takes place in an alternate universe. In this universe, Earth exists, but things are very different from our own planet. A faction, called the Principality of Zeon, has split off from Earth. They have declared independence from the Earth Federation. In order to assure their independence, war has been declared.

The Principality of Zeon is much smaller than the Earth Federation, but the effects of their new technology, the mobile suits, is devastating. In the first part of the war, nearly half of humanity is wiped out. The mobile suits are giant robotic suits, armed with different weapons and shaped much like a human, that are piloted by a single person. Because of this technology, it begins to look like all may be lost. However, the Earth Federation is working on its own mobile suit.

After a reconnaissance mission by the Principality of Zeon goes awry, the Earth Federation discovers a new way to fight. The reconnaissance team disobeys orders and begins attacking the Earth Federation. An average young man, named Amuro Ray, finds the Earth Federation's new mobile suit, the RX-78 Gundam, and uses it to subdue the attackers. This leads to the realization that civilians can help to fight against the Principality of Zeon. All hope is not lost for Earth.

As the show progresses, viewers witness many different battles between the two warring factions. They also get to learn more about each of the mobile suit pilots. Each pilot has his or her own personal story, as well as different reasons for joining the war effort.
