Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin III: Dawn of Rebellion marks a new path of vengeance for Casval Rem Deikun and his transformation into Char Aznable. As Gundam fans know this rebellion sparked the start of the One Year War, which will become the largest tragedy in the Gundam universe.
The prequel itself is extremely gripping, and draws you in all the way through. That’s probably partly due to the fact that fans know where the story is going, but more importantly The Origin prequel is the perfect spot for new fans to start watching. On top of that the thing I really appreciate in this prequel is that you finally get to see things from Char’s point of view and how his experiences changed him into the character fans know from the original series. It’s almost like we are seeing a close and personal view of the character just like it was the first time. As a bonus, both the English dub and original Japanese voice actors deliver a top notch performance that is sure to leave an impression. Furthermore, I love all the detail that was put into the animation. Each frame looks like perfection, so when it comes down to the wait between episodes; it was well worth it. The bottom line is that this is a must watch for all fans new and old.
