Holy shit /a/, I just watched this.

Why aren't there more animes like this?

>American mechanical design
>glorious music
>excellent Disney/Miyazaki designs
>Miyazaki Gundam
>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.

Because it's boring as fuck, has hideous designs and barely seems like Gundam in the first place?

>>101170982
is the only thing the series had going for.

>>101170689
>Miyazaki
>MIyazaki
>Miyazaki
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.

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
>>
>>101171091
>All these shit opinions
>>
>>101170689
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.
>>
>animes
But yes, Turn A is fucking awesome. BDs when?

Funny, 'cause the Okawara redesign looks much worse.
>>
How much did you cry when you saw the SUMO get wrecked in Build Fighters?
>>
>>101174859
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.
>>
>>101175347
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
>>
>>101175347
All of them are pretty good, especially Victory, G and X. Wing is.... Best viewed through nostalgia goggles.
>>
>>101174860
Okawara doesn't have to try hard to make something look awful.
>>
>>101175645
Wing is fun and has the Tallgeese, so it's worth watching.
>>
>>101175531
Glad I just started picked this up on episode 3 right now.

>>101175699
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?
>>
>>101175771
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
>>
Yeah

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?
>>
>>101175645
Victory is fucking garbage. Tomino should be glad he wasn't impaled for that travesty.
>>
>>101176513
>Genre director
>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
>>
>>101176785
Well Tomino hates Victory too. I like it because of how strange it is though.
>>
>>101176853
What? Tomino is easily one of the most well-known and praised anime directors. 0079 gets tons of positive critical reception.

>japanese Transfromers
Oh wait, you're just trolling.
>>
>>101176398
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.
>>
>>101175136
a single tear, the SUMO is so cool.
>>
>>101176785
Victory is one of the best UC Gundams.

>>101176946
>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.
>>
>>101176785
Victory is fucking amazing.
>>
>>101176785
I thought Victory was good.
>>
>>101177020
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.

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.
>>
>>101178010

Because Bandai sucks at business.
>>
>>101179037
Well, Wing and G were pretty huge, yes.
>>
>>101178341
Now you're just trying too hard. You're being far too obvious about it.
