Title: Char & Sayla

Series: Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin #5

Author & Artist: Yoshikazu Yasuhiko

Genre: Manga

A whole book of backstory about Char and Sayla and the beginnings of Zeon. The rise of the Zabbi family and the split between the Federation and the spacers.


My Thoughts:

I think I enjoyed this book the most so far. I love a good dose of political thriller in my manga and this delivered in spades, the way that only japanese manga can.

Seeing some of what happened before Amuro came along was really nice. The history of “Char” was incredible and made me say “wow” out loud. I also thought that it made him one of the most cold hearted bastards to ever come out of an anime. He is just plain bad.

Other than that, this book reinforced, positively, my decision to start buying this series. This book alone makes it worth it.
