In Universal Century 0079, forces of the Earth Federation and Principality of Zeon engage in a battle within the Thunderbolt Sector during the One Year War. This section of space—known for its constant strikes of electricity—proves to be a deadly battlefield, as Federation pilot Io Fleming leads a charge against Zeon’s ace Daryl Lorenz and his squad of snipers. With the fighters on both sides proving to be formidable soldiers, neither side is willing to back down, fighting strategically amongst the remnants of colonies.

But when Io gets a hold of a prototype Gundam, Daryl will have to make a sacrifice in order to obtain enough power to crush his enemy and ensure that Zeon is victorious, or watch as his comrades are slaughtered by a single man. [Written by MAL Rewrite]



Gundam Thunderbolt is about the Thunderbolt sector and the conflict between Zeon and Federation to claim the sector. This is the first Gundam I’ve came across with a manly looking Gundam pilot. The anime had alot of action and it focused on the battles. The episodes were 18 min long they weren’t that long the whole anime covered only the 3 vol of the Thunderbolt manga. It didn’t cover the whole story but they did make a great twist in the ending of the anime. The anime was exciting and the animation was very good. The music was great so was the story. I highly recommend this anime.

Overall Rate: 8/10
