Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack [Anime Movie Classics]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
The fourth Gundam feature (1988) takes place 14 years after the third and continues the rivalry between Earth Federation mecha pilot Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, now ruler of the space realm of Neo-Zeon. Char so hates the Earth, he plans to bombard the planet with asteroids, causing a deadly nuclear winter. Although the corrupt Earth Federation commands vastly superior resources, all that really stands in Char's way is Amuro and his Nu Gundam Mobile Suit. Writer-director Yoshiyuki Tomino continues the story of the Newtypes, humans who possess psychic powers. The latest possessor of these abilities is Quess Paraya, an obnoxious teenager who whines and fusses until she's finally killed. Char's Counterattack is essentially a two-hour space battle, and although Tomino had only limited technology at his disposal, the choreography of the mecha duels is generally effective and exciting. Rated 13 Up: Violence, mostly robot vs. robot. --Charles Solomon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the final battle of Char and Amuro. Char Aznable is my favorite anime character. To see them battle is so intense, after all these years it ends. It just blows my mind.
Many people will be confused by this movie, the ending will really confuse people. But if you watch it enough times you'll understand more and more. Don't worry tho, this is a movie you can watch over & over anyway.
IF you do like this as much as I do check out the following: Mobile Fighter G Gundam (it's on Cartoon Network every day), Mobile Suit Gundam, 08th MS Team, 0083 Stardust Memory, Pilot Candidate (it's really good for a laugh and intresting as well), and something called Outlaw Star.
Amuro and Quest are two of the main characters .Quest is a young and some what bratty, and spoiled girl(in my opion),who like Amuro is a New Type. A person who is sensitive to other's feelings, and can vision ones next moves in battels.Though there is more to it then that of cores.
Noah Bright's own son Hathaway is in the exciting movie who tries to befriend Quest after twist of faith meting Quest and the Vice Forigen Minister.He is given the chance of going on words to space thanks to him but not his mother and younger sister and ends up being on the same space ship that his father Caption Noah Bright .
Now enemies Char insites trying to freez the earth and try to put it under a blanket of sleep.So that humanity can become the next involved step towards a better race.
But who will win this battel?Char and Quest?Are Amuro and Noah Bright and the rest of the crew?
