Universal Century 0093. Thirteen years have passed since the end of the One Year War, as depicted in the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. The foundations of peace are once again threatened by a new Neo Zeon army led by the notorious Char Aznable! Their ultimate goal is to initiate a nuclear winter upon Earth ushering in a new age of mankind into space. Armed with the state of the art Nu Gundam mobile suit, Amuro Ray and the Federation forces are all that stand against Neo Zeon. Driven by vengeance, duty and love, the final battle between rivals Char Aznable and Amuro Ray is at hand. Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack marks the theatrical debut of the seminal mecha franchise and is the culmination of a story begun in the original series and continued through Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. The operatic battle between the White Devil and the Red Comet has never been as exciting.
