Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ is a TV series that aired in Japan from 1986-1987. It is the direct sequel to Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and picks up shortly after where its predecessor left of. Yoshiyuki Tomino served once again as director, with a staff that included character designer Hiroyuki Kitazume, returning composer Shigeaki Saegusa and a mechanical design team that featured Mika Akitaka, Makoto Kobayashi, Yutaka Izubuchi, Hajime Katoki and more. Set in UC 0088, the AEUG has been devastated from the three-way Gryps War with the Earth Federation’s Titans task force and Haman Karn’s Axis Zeon. Having lost its ace Newtype pilot, the AEUG turns to brash teenager Judau Ashta and his friends to carry on the fight against the rebranded Neo Zeon. In contrast to its predecessor, Gundam ZZ featured a much lighter tone during its first half. After the conclusion of Gundam ZZ in 1987, it was followed by the first original Gundam theatrical feature, Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack. The series is available on home video in North America from Right Stuf.
