It would be... unfair of me to try to rate this...

Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
ANN; GundamOfficial (archived); IMDb; Sunrise; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

A movie made in 1988, and set in UC 0092-93. It's actually set after a couple of series, Z Gundam and Gundam ZZ, neither of which which I've ever seen, so it really didn't make a lot of sense to me. (Both series came after Mobile Suit Gundam, which I did see most of.) But what're ya gonna do, I'm at the mercy of Cartoon Network's bizarre scheduling whims (or to be, fair, Cartoon Network and I are both at the mercy of what's available stateside). Anyway, it re-ignited the old conflict between Amuro Ray and Char Aznable. And there was a lot more stuff about Newtypes and I think some program to artificially turn people into Newtypes. And um, there was this really stupid, annoying Newtype girl named Quess who wanted to be with Char, though he was with some other woman; besides the fact that he missed his former protégé, or whatever. And the son of a couple of the characters from the original series was in the movie. And Char had some plot to drop an asteroid on Earth or something. I dunno, I couldn't really follow the story very well, but basically I thought it sucked (though I still preferred it over Stardust Memory). Maybe I would've liked it better if I'd actually seen the series it followed. Or maybe not. Still, if I ever do get a chance to see those series, I'll have to try watching this again....
