From Viz:
Zeon ace pilot, Commander Char Aznable, thought he could foil the Federation's plan to build a mobile suit by attacking their research base on colony Side 7. He was wrong. With a prototype already active, the besieged Federation forces strike back using their new weapon, the mobile suit Gundam, with devastating consequences. Amidst the fighting, young electronics wizard Amuro Ray is determined not to let his friends and family die in the crossfire. But what can one boy do to repel a squad of mobile suit-clad invaders?

I wasn't a big fan of the saga actually, but some of the whole series are interesting in their own way. I watched Seed at first and I thought that mecha is quite a cool genre, that's how I ended up here. Personally, compared to other manga adaptations, I think this one here is excellent. The drawing of the battles, the movement of the mobile suits and the background are put into shape to fit the anime (and some panels expressively give off a strange feeling of nihilism, perhaps in relation to the vacuum space), and I am really satisfied with the resulting quality. Characters are well drawn, which I suppose are following the original creation, though I think the development here will be much more intense, deeper than in the anime. I hope there would be more coming up!

this manga is so awesome. it follows the exact storyline of the original gundam series, but it also adds extra material that further fleshes out some of the characters and situations in the original series. although the art may look a bit dated, i think that it perfectly suits the story and is quite faithful towards the original series.
