Review Gundam 0083 Stardust memory Written by Warpshadow Rating very good/ excellent

There is a certain majesty in the shows of the Gundam Franchise, especially those of the Original (Universal Century) Setting. Stardust Memory Captures this Grandeur to the fullest while having a quality animation unlike that which doomed the original series in terms of television ratings.

It has been three years since the cataclysmic one year war. In the ruins of the worst attack of the war new mobile suits are being tested. One of these suits is equipped with a tactical nuclear warhead. Easily getting by lax security some remnants of Zeon steal the Gundam Prototype. It is up to the crew of the Albion and a young Ensign named Kou Uraki to get the stolen suit back before it can use it's warhead. One question does remain, what is this Operation stardust that the Zeon forces keep talking about?

Stardust memory is a great Oav in the Gundam tradition. What this means is that the show is full of tragedies, political skullduggery, and enemies that are not as evil as they first appear. Where this Oav truly succeeds is the plot and the unfolding of operation stardust. It is one of the best villain plots I have ever seen, and executed with complete believability. The other element that stands out is the Mecha both in quality of design (and well animated to boot) and the intensity of the battles. While the characters are likable they probably won't grab you the same way the other elements of the show will.
