Title: Lalah Series: Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin Author & Artist: Yoshikazu Yasuhiko Rating: of 5 Stars Genre: Manga Pages: 420

Synopsis: The Federation is continuing its push to eradicate Zeon. A battle ensues on Side 6 [New Texas, or something like that] that is more of a test of the Newtype than for any strategic advantage. Char, Amuro and Lalah all meet, not knowing the other. And Char is going crazy. There is no other explanation for his behavior, etc. My Thoughts: Amuro is gaining in ability quicker than ever, due to being a newtype. However, just what a Newtype is exactly is left pretty open. It would appear to be whatever the authors/artists want it to be. Zeon's aggressive study and use of newtypes is sad and we see the consequences of one newtype pushed beyond his limit. He would have been a splendid fighter and even leader for a regular army, but in the newtype study he is used, used up and then cast aside. It is made very evident just how much of a waste this is. I don't want to delve much into interpreting what the authors/artists message here is, but along with the very evident "war is useless and bad" vibe, I do get the sense that they are trying to say that every human life is precious. No matter if it lives up to some man made line or not. " ( )
