Today, it's time for Cocoa☆Disaster to tackle an entry in one of anime's most enduring franchises! Chorps and his friend Sid (@BeamSplashX on Twitter) meet up
to talk about 1989's Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, a six episode OVA series and the first Gundam series to not be helmed by franchise creator Yoshiyuki Tomino.
0080 really digs into the anti-war themes of Gundam through the lens of civilians and a conflict that's smaller and more relatable than the One Year War. We discuss
not only the shows and its themes, but the way it affected Gundam as a whole and the way it relates to series that came after it. So what does this first Gundam
side story look like, and what does it do differently? Why are the robot fights so unsatisfying? Just how many war crimes did Al commit without knowing? All this
and more, coming at you!
