Here's Where You Can Stream Every Episode Of Mobile Suit Gundam

"Mobile Suit Gundam" is an anime that has withstood the test of time, with over 40 years of continued movies, TV series, and stand-alone content. Originally premiering in Japan in 1979, "Mobile Suit Gundam" would go on to become a worldwide success, earning over $5 billion in merchandise sales alone in the franchise's first 20 years. The mecha anime follows Amuro Ray, a teenager who is thrust into the middle of an interstellar war between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon.

In the very first episode of the series, Ray is aboard a space colony that comes under attack while in orbit around Earth. Amid the chaos of the attack, Ray comes across a new experimental Mobile Suit and decides to pilot it to defend the space station. The teenager's bold move would thrust him into the role of the protagonist, and fans have since watched him find his footing as a Mobile Suit Gundam pilot.

Despite that first episode airing over four decades ago, the popularity of the show has grown and grown. The Gundam franchise has seen tons of content that expands the story immensely from the original "Mobile Suit Gundam" series. But if you are new to the franchise, watching the original 43 episodes before adventuring into the expanded universe is not a bad idea.

Mobile Suit Gundam can be streamed with a subscription to Crunchyroll

If you want to catch all the action from the original "Mobile Suit Gundam" series, there is only one place you can stream the episodes — Crunchyroll. It is possible to pick up the series on Blu-ray or DVD via Amazon or another marketplace, but Crunchyroll is the only streaming option at the moment.

The anime streaming service offers up 42 out of the 43 original episodes for streaming with a subscription, but you'll need to look elsewhere for the elusive episode entitled "Cucuruz Doan's Island." Episode 15 in "Mobile Suit Gundam" suffered from some animation hiccups due to the show's art director being hospitalized during the episode's creation. And at the request of the show's creator, the episode was never released internationally and is only available on a specific Blu-ray set.

But you can still enjoy the rest of the series on Crunchyroll dubbed over in English or in its original Japanese with English subtitles. Crunchyroll also has many of the other Gundam movies and TV series available on their service if you are looking to go deeper into the massive Gundam universe.
