Just watched this series. Like it very very much. And only few episodes, not as long as other series.

One of the few roles of David Hayter in anime. He wasn't bad here IMO.

Ya know how long it took me to realize Bernie was voiced by David Hater?

Way too long....I should have realized it sooner. Being I LOVE his VO work.

2) Did the beam saber of the Gundam thrust into the Zaku's cockpit, so Barnie died? Bernie was unfortunately killed during combat against the Alex Gundam

3) Did the red hair girl in the end know that the Barnie is the one who was piloting the Zaku?Bernie nor Chris new they where battling one another
If you have any more questions, Iíll be glad to answer them.

Always loved how they ironically play a positively tuned BGM at the bitter end of the OAV.

Me too mate. This was after I knew he did the MGS series as his major VO work.

I'm in the middle of rewatching this, I might as well give a review. Every single moment of this OVA where Al isn't speaking is great. When he is, it's pretty annoying. Makes sense seeing as how he's a kid, but still, it's almost enough to ruin it for me. He's like that kid that won't shut up. But it's still a great OVA.

A fantastic OVA this was, and one of the most compelling and best written entries in the Gundam franchise.

How dare people insult Haruhiko Mikimoto's style from great works like Macross and Gunbuster.

Heh, back in 8th grade when I was in a ULTRA "Gundam or GTFO mood" like I am today, 0080 was the #1 Gundam series I tried to watch. All due to the Kampfer.

And now that I finished rewatching it, I'll give a second review. The first three episodes were very good, but Al was ruining it for me. The last three are much better. Al's character has improved (yay character development) and everything else is just as good. Bernie's ingenuity was fun to watch, and the final duel was spectacular. The ending was sad (in an emotional way, not a pathetic way) but very good. "Hamburger" indeed feddie soldier. ... Hamburger. And the way they animated a nuke going off inside of a colony, scary.

Definitely one of my favorite Anime, along with The 08th MS Team of course and Stardust Memories and 0079.

Of all of them though, War in the Pocket has the best story. Alot of emotion and characters you cared about.

I had watched few gundam titles and definitely Gundam 0080 has one of the best stories in the gundam series

I guess you really do learn something new every day. I didn't know David Hayter did Bernie's voice....been a fan of the guy since the original MGS.

Here's Bernie..... and in English.

Makes you wonder if "Love bloomed in the battlefield for this young Zeon soldier."

I actually got a little choked up watching this for the first time. Incredible story.

Ahh the midnight run those were certainly the days, too bad toonami is gone i really miss it, anyway i only caught the first episode of this series but i really liked the idea of the main characters being the usual bad guys, telling the story from Zeon's perspective certainly opens up some great storylines and development

I miss Toonami too and Midnight Run was epic. GW uncut and so many other great programs.

Featured the Zaku II Kai design that put all other Zakus (excluding Goufs) to shame including the wannabe Hi-Zacks.

2 actions of the characters would seem stupid (to me intially anyway) unless you thought about it.

Why did the kid help the enemy? Well he's a kid who never thought far (yeah lots of adults nowadays have the same problem). Loved it when Barnie told him he would be executed for being a traitor and seeing the kid's look when he finally realises it not just a game.

Why did Barnie have to fight the Gundam? He thought removal of that would remove any need to destroy the colony since he had no idea it would not help at all and in fact would be detrimental as the Gundam suit would not be avalable to defend the colony if it was damaged/destroyed. Also most people would never think of attacking their own ships plus he would be swiss cheese before reaching anyway.

Other than that the actions taken by the characters are pretty logical (including Barnie's attempt to run away from his conscience) and for Barnie to trap the forest before engaging showed some intelligence. Both the girl and Barnie looked liked complete fools but with the fog of war, that's just what would happen.

Good storyline. Very real robot
