Although it is supposed to be a compilation of the first 27 episodes, many important parts are skipped as a result of the cost to put the series together into two separate movies. The first episode is compressed into less than six minutes, as are many of the most important episodes. I'm sure that the director had his reasons, but there should've been more consideration put forth for the people that truly admire this part of the Gundam franchise. Turn A Gundam is a very emotional series, and to cut out so many parts of the movie is an insult to those who truly admire the series, such as myself. It is my hope that the second movie in the series, Turn A Gundam: Moonlight Butterfly does not have such a problem. Because I would rather burn the entire series from the internet than watch this beautiful and emotional series be broken up into this twisted form.
