I decided that in 2008, I'm going to watch every Gundam release in the Universal Century timeline on DVD and one title that was high up on my list was the fan favorite "Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team". As for this popular MS Gundam OVA series, it has been released several times by Bandai Entertainment. First as individual volumes back in 2002, then a complete set in 2005 and now as part of the "Anime Legends", the set is re-released with all 12 OAV episodes and the OAV Miller's Report.

Made in 1996 and released in a 12-episode OVA (followed up by another OVA titled "Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team - Miller's Report"), the series was directed by Takeyuki Kanda ("Kiko Senki Dragonar", "SD Gundam Musha, Knight, Commando") and Umanosuke Iida ("Origin ~Spirits of the Past~", "Vandread" and "Hellsing") and a screenplay by Akira Okeya ("Grenadier", "Kodocha", "Transformers: Armada") and Hiroaki Kitajima ("Noein", "Vision of Escaflowne" and "Witch Hunter Robin").

The OVA series would feature a talent crew such as music by popular anime composer Kouhei Tanaka ("Ah! My Goddess", "Gate Keepers", "Dirty Pair", "Gunbuster", etc.) and character designs by Tomoaki Kado (who worked on series such as "Fullmetal Alchemist", ".Hack/Sign" and "Infinite Ryvius") and Toshihiro Kawamoto (who worked on series such as "Fullmetal Alchemist", "City Hunter" and "Macross Plus"). Mechanical designs are by Hajime Katoki ("Mobile Suit Gundam Wing", "Gundam Evolve", "Super Robot Wars OG Divine Wars" and the "Patlabor" movies), Kimitoshi Yamane ("Cowboy Bebop", "Infinite Ryvius" and "Spriggan") and Kunio Okawara ("Armored Trooper Votoms", "Mobile Suit Gundam", "Gravion" and "Super Robot Wars OG Divine Wars").

The series takes place during October U.C. 0079 through December U.C.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Complete Box Set March 16, 2009
Verified Purchase
MS Gundam: The 08th MS Team - Anime Legends Complete Box is great overall.
It is actually 355 minutes long, NOT 335 minutes. It comes with alot of bonus clips that run an average of 3 minutes. These bonus clips are about how the UC colonies started building in space, how The Principality of Zeon started, their Zeon mobile suits, and about an overview of Mobile Suit Gundam series. It also has the Mobile Suit/Vehicles/Characters Encyclopedia of the 08th MS Team series. The box set is thin, like a regular single DVD box, but contains 5 discs. 4 discs contain all 12 episodes, and the 5th disc contains Miller's Report.

The animation itself is awesome, and in my opinion, is better than or on par with the animation of Gundam Seed or Gundam 00.

The only thing that disappoints me is that it does not have Widescreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite March 8, 2011
One of my favorite animes of all time, and my favorite of the Gundamn series. This has something for everyone, love, politically intrigue, and the struggle for humanity. It touches on the bases of morality in the backdrop of war, of the disillusions that can effect someone when they realize what they are fighting for doesn't have the same meaning it once had. Courage in the face of adversity, rolled into a package of beautiful drawing and splended characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Gundam Series October 22, 2012
By KevinB
In UC 0079 the Federation is mass producing Gundams for their ground forces. Shiro Amada is the commander of the 08th MS team who fights a ground war against Zeon guerrilla forces. Zeon, however, is making a weapon that will tip the balance of power in the war.

This is a great Gundam series. The action is good and there are lots of cool characters. There is also a great love story in this one too. It's definitely worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product at an amazing price March 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
This particular series of gundam has always been my personal favorite. I was very excited to see that the series was released in a box set. I was able to get the series for just shy of twenty two dollars, which is a great deal. This box set is everything you can expext with all 12 episodes and the bonus Millers Report on dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much for Gundams January 6, 2010
Despite the fact that this series has little to do with the usual Gundam type series most people may know about, with the extremely high-tech personalized Gundams (Gundam Wing, Gundam Seed, G Gundam) this is a great series. It may be short, but in the time between the start and the end, it gets a lot done. If you're into a decent animated romance series with action and plenty of humor, I recommend picking this up if you don't already have it. It is probably my favorite out of the Gundam shows I've seen thus far (Gundam Wing, Gundam Seed, G Gundam, Gundam 0079, Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, 08th MS Team)

5.0 out of 5 stars Gundam 08th MS Team Review March 29, 2009
Verified Purchase
This was one of my better recent Gundam purchases. I never felt as if there were any "filler" episodes (except for maybe the Miller's report and the last episode) like I encountered with Zeta. And this being the newest of my purchases, the animation is a lot better. As Zeta I felt was too long, this was a little too short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Review
A nice little spin off from the original Mobile suit Gundam. Follows the 08th MS Team for a few missions while the bigger battle is off elsewhere. Can't go wrong with this.

Its the 8th MS Team, I guess they're doing a release of it. If you zoom in on the bottom of the picture enough you can see it.
