Mobile Suit Gundam episode 6 is the first bathing scene in the Mobile Suit Gundam series.
At a Zeon base, Char Aznable is taking a Shower under a Ceiling Shower when Garma Zabi sits at a chair right outside the room and talks with Char about knowing about the White Base's secret weapons. Char is seen washing his arm with a Sponge during the conversation. Once the conversation ends and Garma leaves, Char exits the Bathroom wearing a Towel and drying his hair with another towel and lifts his head up and a sinister glare comes from his eye.
Mobile Suit Gundam I Movie
This exact scene was recycled in the compilation Mobile Suit Gundam I Movie on March 14th, 1981 except for the shot of the the Ceiling Shower which made the scene 1 second shorter. In the movie, the shower takes place inside of a mansion rather than a Zeon base. The recycled animation was slightly altered and made to look wider and darker.
