Generally, complilation movies aren't as good as the full series. The only
exception I can think of is the Macross Plus movie which, IMHO is actually
better than the series. Sure, they had to cut some cool stuff (like the
opening space battle) but the additional scences more than make up for it.
In addition, the movie seems to have a much tighter plot and better pacing
than the series.

I think it's the Gyan. Since you seem to be a fan, I'll mention that HLJ
had the Gyan HGUC kit on sale at a very reduced price last time I checked.
