Manga - Gundam 0079

Post by Tachyon » Wed Apr 06, 2005 9:56 pm

I just finished the first 9 books of the translated manga Gundam 0079 by Kazuhisa Kondo. It's too bad VIZ stopped the translation at book 9. I really like this manga.

It's a re-telling of Mobile Suit Gundam with a few changes and some redesigned mecha. The great thing about it is, every change that Kondo made is just how I would have changed it. This is definately a great action title. Also, Kondo's redesigns of mobile armors and vehicles are really cool.

This title is worth picking up!

What are some of these changes Tachyon? Political/Geographical/Social - give us an example.

I didn't watch the first TV series but I saw the the movie trilogy compilation a while back. One change is, the Zakrello never sees combat. The Public Class assault ship/fighter's design is based on the G Fighter instead of its own, isolated design.

Other changes I can't remember off the top of my head (I'm at the office now) but you notice them while you're reading.

I just looked at
http://store.viz.com/browse/GUNDAM0079/ ... s.xy7OQIGp

They only list 9 books for Gundam 0079. Where did you see books 1 thru 12? I'd certainly like to buy book 10 if I can find it.
