4.0 out of 5 stars The Book's Good, But Only Part of the Whole Nov. 16 2002
Format:Paperback
...The anime series "Mobile Suit Gundam", (on which this manga is based) holds a Star Trek like place in Japanese culture, having spawned multiple sequals and many imitators.
Gundam moved the "giant robot genre" out of the giant robot superheros area and into the "giant robots as war machines of the future" mode.
This book is part of the continuing story of what happens when children at an obscure research post find themselves pressed into service as child soldiers.
This particular book starts as Amuro, the main character, is not handling it well and has taken off with the war machine he operates.
I enjoyed it as much as the others in this series. The art is good. The characters work. There's more giant robot battles than I'm normally looking for in fiction, but honestly, it's a war story. What should I expect?

3.0 out of 5 stars Ramba Ral attacks! Aug. 25 2011
By BlueStar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the third installment of the Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 series, it starts with a small show of power by M'Quve's new Adzam Mobile Armor and Amuro meeting Ramba Ral in a neutral town while Amuro is away from White Base after deserting it. White Base falls under attack and Amuro grows up a little and heads back to help only to find the very man he met, Ramba Ral, being his enemy in the battle. Ramba in his Gouf challenge Amuro and the Gundam to a sword fight and Ramba loses the Gouf but still lives to see another battle...and that he does! Ramba falls back but only to devise a plan to attack the White Base guerrilla warfare style in hand-to-hand combat. Ramba launches his attack with his men and gets into the White Base but is ultimately foiled by the Gundam and Ramba sacrifices himself to show the men how a true warrior dies. Hamon, Ramba's partner, sets out a revenge attack on White Base to avenge Ramba and nearly completes her mission but her plan is foiled when Ryu takes out a Core Fighter and suicide rams it right into her Magella Top and kills the both of them. However, the White Base crew is given no time to mourn the death of Ryu as Lt. Matilda is sent out to supply the White Base with special upgrades and comes under attack by a squad of Goufs on Dodai Ys planes and the White Base is sent out to assist them. However, the question is, what are the upgrades due for the White Base?

Overall, this one had a bit of a slow story to it. It finally finished off the Ramba Ral story arc with the death of both Ramba and Hamon along with the White Base member Ryu. Along with that, the Adzam is barely shown for just a few panels and the final panel hints at a redesigned G-Fighter making an appearance in volume 4. This isn't a crucial volume to have and it still sticks to the T.V. Show story but very abridged in this particular volume. Not a must-have but still one to get for the story and introduction to the overly-ridiculous G-Fighter!
