That’s a Zanzibar class! The biggest book yet in the never flagging adaptation of Gundam (I think about 50 pages longer than book II). If you’ve read books one and two you know the kind of quality you can expect here, nothing has changed. This is my favorite book so far, I really loved the parts toward the end where guys are flying around with jet packs trying to storm the Trojan Horse. The action in these has always been good but this stuff in particular I loved. I really can’t say enough about how excellently this manga is produced and published, all other comics should be ashamed of themselves.
