If I wanted to watch a Gundam series or two or three, with no intention of watching them ALL, what series should I watch?
Original, Wing and 00.
Stay away from Turn A and Unicorn until you're well versed with the whole franchise.
You got to >>>/m/ and ask them
Gundam W is terrible, ignore the people who tell you to watch it. They're just nostalgic for it because it's babby's first Gundam.
Just the original one, really.
War in the Pocket and play Zeonic Front.
I really like Gundam, 08th MS Team, and G Gundam.
Gundam seed destiny is great
Build Fighter. Then you'll want to watch them all.
loving the gundam OP posted, what gundam is it? is it the high nu?
G-Saviour, Gundam SEED Destiny and the 00 movie.
im really liking the fuck out of gundam build fighters
you should also try G Gundam
as well as gundam seed so you can go jesus like everyone else on /a/
>more than 10 posts in
>nobody mentions stardust memories
It's a custom built Hi-Nu.
That's because 0083 is mediocre, it's not good enough to recommend it sincerely and it isn't bad enough to recommend it ironically.
does it sell like that, or does it need to be custom painted? i really liked the color scheme
they sell the hi nu, but that's a custom paint job in the theme of the original nu gundam
Just watch like 0080. Probably the only thing actually worth your time. Most of the franchise is shit. I guess Turn A is pretty okay, too, but that might require too much knowledge about everything else.
It's much more than just a custom paint job, you can tell the guy made some parts (like the joints and the rifle) from scratch. The characters from Build Fighters would be proud.
>implying you didn't just get trolled.
>I was only pretending to be retarded XD
Why do you exist?
>I was only pretending
Also, "lel"? Are you fresh from /v/?
sei and mao probably be the happiest of the bunch
Which is the sexiest Gundam and why is it the Sinanju?
what the hell?
even the head looks different.. not to mention the leg armor also different. how to these people do plastic job like that
I was referring to the series. If you want to get so specific, then MS.
Considering AE treats their Mobile Suits like legos you could consider anything they make a Gundam.
They mash and glue kits together.
Depends on who you talk to, I rec 08th MS
sazabi looks better, but the sexiest is probably Exia
As much as I like red color schemes, especially when paired up with black and gold, the Sinanju is a bit too tacky.
Strike Freedom, Arios Ascalon, and Reborns Origin are my favorite.
Gundam Wing, Gundam 00, and Gundam 0079.
If you don't want a 52 episode series, watch 08th MS Team, 0083 Stardust Memories, and Gundam Seed: Stargazer
pleb as fuck
>Strike Freedom, Arios Ascalon, and Reborns Origin
You have shit taste.
>liking blinding menstrual colored mechs over aesthetically pleasing designs that don't strain your eyes
Why you just cover yourself in blood, if you like shitty mechs so much.
>aesthetically pleasing designs
I'll give you Arios Ascalon as being somewhat pleasing to the eye and I'll let Reborns Origin pass, but Strike fucking Freedom? You complained about Sinanju being tacky and you just go and mention that glowing golden piece of shit? You can't expect me to take you seriously.
Unicorn Mode Unicorn is objectively the best designed Gundam. A shame they had to fuck it up with Destroy Mode.
anything that's not written/directed by Tomino
>glowing golden piece of shit
I was actually referring to the non-glow status.
08th MS team, Zeta, and G Gundam.
Alternatively, remove Zeta and watch build fighters which is currently airing.
Anyone saying to watch W/ Wing are pleb faggots. Not even kidding.
>watching Build Fighters
>calls other people plebs
Are you serious? You think that blatant pandering shit is any better than Wing?
Not that guy, but Strike Freedom still has the gaudy golden/brass colored joints on the wings.
Freedom looks okay though. SEED Destiny Gundams are not that appealing to me in terms of design, save for Impulse.
>blatant, pandering shit
It has no premise, which is arguably the downfall of most gundam series.
Some people who want to watch Gundam who've never got into it want to just get straight into the giant robots beating up giant robots anon. Not everybody gives a fuck about muh space soap operas.
That's why I said BF which is ZERO politics/controversy/ulterior motives just fanservice and good animation, G Gundam which is absolutely nuts, but still has some of the politics, and masterminding of normal Gundam shows, albeit ending completely differently and being absolutely nuts.
And 08th MS team which is normal gundams doing normal gundam things.
Blatant pandering shit isn't bad, you moron, only when it's trying to be something deeper than it is.
Even when it's not glowing it still looks tacky as fuck because the golden joints. The Freedom looks better than the Strike Freedom for this very reason. The only MS's I can think I liked in SEED Destiny were the Destiny itself and maybe the Infinite Justice.
Blatant pandering shit is pretty bad, bro. You shouldn't need to try so hard to justify watching that shit.
To be fair, the show does rely a bit too much in references in an already referential as fuck franchise. It's hard to recommend it to someone who hasn't watched Gundam before because he would miss many of the jokes, references and fan service.
Which shouldn't be an issue if it was actually a solid show. Giant Robo is full of references to Yokohama's other work, but it works just as well even if you don't know about any of that shit.
If you want the experience of watching a Gundam series as it comes out, watch Buddy Complex. It's basically Gundam with the serial numbers filed off.
Well.. it's an okay-ish show, though, which is more than I can say for 80% of the shows of this season. If you take all the references it's a kids' cartoon with really good animation, action and lovable characters albeit a bit nonsensical and shallow but that comes with the territory of shows made for kids.
Speaking of build fighters, I'm hoping they pull in some real war elements, what with Reiji's background a mystery, it's plausible I'd say.
Watch G Gundam, it will change your life.
Your fists will be burning red with hot fury and passion, just like the East, for eternity.
And watch the dub, faggotron.
