Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack

Japan

1988

Introduction

“Plot: In UC0093, the missing Char Aznable reestablished Newborn Neo Zeon and declared war on the Earth Federation. The Neo-Zeon forces carried out a meteorite strike, forcing the Londo Bell commanded by Bright Noah to fight alone and unaided. There, they found Char’s rival, Amuro Rey. However, their good fight was in vain, and the 5th Luna fell to Earth.
Amuro, feeling threatened by Char’s movements, went to the moon, where chief developer Chan Agi was waiting, to receive the Nu Gundam, an MS with an integrated psycho-frame.
Meanwhile, Bright’s son, Hathaway Noah, met Ques Paraya on his way up into space and was deeply attracted to her.”
