Mobile Suit Gundam: 08th MS Team

What is it? Gundam One Year War OAV with some Vietnam vibes, a very good fight scene and not that great outside of that cool fight scene.

If You like Universal Century, Mecha, Cool fights

I've now watched three Universal Century OAVs and uhhhh War in the Pocket is the only good one. I really wanted to like this one, but it's just not very good. Yes the Gouf Custom is a great fight and everyone should watch it, but overall don't feel like this had much going on.

Shiro isn't a good protagonist, the romance is very silly and there just isn't any thematic cohesion.

I'm watching all of Gundam in release order and maybe no one but Tomino should have worked on Universal Century.
