Holy shit /a/, I just watched this.
Why aren't there more animes like this?
>American mechanical design
>excellent Disney/Miyazaki designs
>that originality throughout the entire series
>best MC ever
Seriously, I'll never get why this did bad in Japan. Anime should be more like this and not like the current shit airing today.
Black History gives me goosebumps every time it plays.
Also, best Char clone.
>I'll never get why this did bad in Japan
Because it's boring as fuck, has hideous designs and barely seems like Gundam in the first place?
is the only thing the series had going for.
Because he's the only guy who's ever done earthy pseudo-historical anime right
Well, the turn A gundam looks fucking hella gay, but the rest of them look OK.
But it has, hands down, the most bad ass song in it.
( Yoko Kanno btw)
>Seriously, I'll never get why this did bad in Japan.
I think it was because an American designed the mecha, plus they gave the Gundam a mustache.
The Dark History gave me major goosebumps and I've never even seen any UC (and this is my only regret watching Turn A)
Also Turn X Gundam is one of the greatest mechs of all time
I like how everyone complains about moon moon in zz but then when turn a spends however many episodes fucking around with indians it's supposedly the best thing ever
>All these shit opinions
It mostly did poorly with the casuals; the long-time Gundam and Tomino fans fucking loved it.
I want to watch this for the glorious soundtrack, but I still have to watch ZZ and the movie first.
But yes, Turn A is fucking awesome. BDs when?
>not watching production order for gundam
Funny, 'cause the Okawara redesign looks much worse.
How much did you cry when you saw the SUMO get wrecked in Build Fighters?
Do you mean I have to watch Victory Gundam, G gundam, and wing before Turn A too?
I'll probably watch them eventually, but I don't see the point in limiting myself to a strict order. So far I've seen 0079, Zeta, and a few OVAs. Next I plan to watch ZZ and Chars Counterattack. After that I'll probably just go right into Turn A.
You don't have to, but you'll appreciate it more if you do. (You left out X by the way).
Also, G is fucking amazing.
It's one of the best gundam series
All of them are pretty good, especially Victory, G and X. Wing is.... Best viewed through nostalgia goggles.
Okawara doesn't have to try hard to make something look awful.
Wing is fun and has the Tallgeese, so it's worth watching.
Glad I just started picked this up on episode 3 right now.
Wing was great finished it a few days ago.
I rewatch the last episodes occasionally, they're all so good.
La la luuuuuuuuu
La la luuuuuu
Surely, I was not the only one who started doing the old man, Indian chanting at the beginning of the OP in the middle of the series?
I remember when I first watched it. I got to episode 25 or something and then I watched the rest in 1 sitting. The ending is just beautiful
And with a shit director in charge the series
Even Syd Mead had not finished watching it today.
Are you sitting in a centrifuge, anon?
Victory is fucking garbage. Tomino should be glad he wasn't impaled for that travesty.
>not a shit
Remained me when he actually capable do something without giant robot
Director like Oshii, Anno, Miyazaki, Otomo don't need their toy robots in every fucking show like japanese Transfromers, and that why they got recognized around the world but not Tomino
Well Tomino hates Victory too. I like it because of how strange it is though.
What? Tomino is easily one of the most well-known and praised anime directors. 0079 gets tons of positive critical reception.
Oh wait, you're just trolling.
Syd Mead doesn't finish a lot of the stuff he's been involved with. Hell, the same goes with many high-tier artists. They simply don't have the time.
a single tear, the SUMO is so cool.
Victory is one of the best UC Gundams.
>Well Tomino hates Victory too
He was bitter as hell, furious at Sunrise and going through a spell of depression when he made it; he doesn't hate the series on its own merits.
Victory is fucking amazing.
I thought Victory was good.
So this is what Tomino fantars believe. Lol
Do you notice last week Tomino announced they are gonna cooperate with Hollywood visual studio. but none of any western media care about this news except anime website.
Do you know bandai had pay shit ton of money to Cartoon Network to have them board cast mobie suit gundam.
And you wonder why Bandai shut down their North American company
>he doesn't hate the series on its own merits.
>As a creator moreso than any one that I could say as a favorite, because there really isn’t a particular work I like the most. What always strikes me are the failures. It’s always the failures that call back to me. And in particular, Victory Gundam is a series that I truly regard as one rife with errors.
He's not fond of it on its own merits.

sure I would check out
1/10 I guess, are you actually that stupid? MSG was fucking huge in America. That's a fact. It, FLCL, Big 0, and Bebop are pretty much responsible for anime airing in America at all.
>And you wonder why Bandai shut down their North American company
Because Bandai sucks at business.
Well, Wing and G were pretty huge, yes.
Now you're just trying too hard. You're being far too obvious about it.
