To cleanse the palate after Steamboy I had a look at the first episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory last night. Among other things this 1991/2 series proves that the bad animation in Record of Lodoss War was not due to an inability to produce it.
Stardust Memory is fun series but I’d forgotten how much it relies on the STUPID in the first episode. As in: if you can suspend disbelief in the STUPID, suspending disbelief in the Gundams and the Minovsky particles is easy. Stardust Memory is still a possible candidate for a twenty days series however, look for it in a poll after I finish Escaflowne. 🙂
