013//Breaking Down Gundam
Ya boy is back at in with another episode breaking down media, the SuperTangent way. Now it's about GUNDAM, the great anime of all time (see: IMO). It all started in 1979 on April 7th. Since it's still April, aka. Gundam Month, we're going to dive into the original series from 1979, Mobile Suit Gundam: what it is, what it's about, and breaking it down in terms of values I derive from it and two of its themes: family, and prejudice. In the vain of Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Evangelion, Macross/Robotech and FLCL, Gundam is an anime that's way too smart for it's own good!
