This anime short series is meant to be a fun parody of characters and events from Mobile Suit Gundam. The results are hit or miss as to be expected from a gag comedy, as I got some glee out of how over-the-top things got with the anime's depiction of elements to the series like Char's relationship with Lalah Sune, Sayla attempting to counsel Bright following his infamous slap on Amuro, and use of the Newtype power. However, the show does occasionally rely on more crass humor to attempt getting laughs yet this misses the mark on many occasions where its implemented. Still, the comedy that parodied elements of the original Gundam series did get some genuine laughs out of me and the episodes were short enough to not wear out their welcome. If you're a Gundam fan that doesn't mind some comedy poking fun of one of the franchise's flagship titles, Mobile Suit Gundam-san is worth a peek.
