Mobile Suit Gundam F91
The anime movie, Mobile Suit Gundam F91, was Gundam creator Tomino Yoshiyuki's attempt to launch a new Gundam saga, set thirty years after Char's Counterattack. He re-teamed with character designer Yasuhiko Yoshikazu and mecha designer Kunio Okawara for the occasion. Originally planned as a full-length television series, Gundam F91 was re-tooled as a thirteen-episode OVA early in the development process, then further condensed into a theatrical feature film. Predictably, condensing a story originally intended to be told over the course of fifty half-hour episodes into less than two hours of screen time required much of the content to be cut, and the results are generally regarded as less than satisfactory.
The story of Gundam F91 revolves around teenage space colonist Seabrook Arno , his girlfriend Cecily Fairchild , and the efforts of the Crossbone Vanguard militia, led by Cecily's grandfather Meitzer Ronah, to established an aristocracy known as "Cosmo Babylonia". In keeping with Gundam tradition, the civilian Seabrook is forced by circumstance to pilot the F91 Gundam, coincidentally designed in part by his estranged mother, Dr. Monica Arno.
The F91 Gundam was developed by SNRI, the Strategic Naval Research Institute.
