So, /a/, I felt like re-watching Gundam Wing and decided to watch all the good Gundams out there, but alas, I know not which is good.
things on my list to watch already are: Gundam 0080, and Gundam Build Fighters.
Start at the beginning.
Wing as shit.
Watch MS Gundam - CCA. 0080, G Gundam, Gundam X, and Turn A.
If you feel like it watch F91 and Gundam 00.
i'd start with the original, zeta and char's counterattack, in that order. then 0800 which you already mentioned
Also 8th MS Team.
The only good gundam are Gundam G and 08th MS.
But he'd be skipping ZZ. That isn't allowed!
Watch 00 if you want something like wing.
I started from the beginning with MS. You should watch Zeta for sure but I've skipped ZZ and went straight to Chars Counter Attack after a few episodes in. Turn A is worth a watch.
There are two boards more suited for this thread. Take it there.
And 0083, for the top tier OPs if nothing else.
I do plan on watching Zeta, it looks fun to watch, ZZ, Mobile suit, and G Gundam.
>That isn't allowed!
That's right, it's compulsory to skip it
Zetas are overrated.
Good. G gundam is top tier, and you should watch the dub for it. Also do Turn A. 00 first season is also really decent.
08th MS Team
Then the others if you want to bore yourself to death with character driven plots and very gundam fighting.
very little gundam fighting
I forgot that word.
>if you want to bore yourself to death with character driven plots
08th MS Team's plot was dogshit. Try 0080 if you want to watch an actually good Gundam OVA.
Start with everything UC in production order. It makes no sense to watch Gundam without knowing the basic UC canon.
The plot might not have been very complex but to say it was shit is not true.
>very little gundam fighting
G Gundam has a crapload of fighting. Also, it has the miracle of the gundam universe.
Yes, 0080 is only character driven plot with very few fight scenes.
>I've skipped ZZ and went straight to Chars Counter Attack
I thought ZZ was essential to the plot. I just finished Zeta last night so it would be next on my list.
It would be better if he just read a wiki and played some SRWs. UC is mostly shit.
Sorry, meant that non-OVA/movie UC is mostly shit.
We aren't allowed to discuss ZZ here. It isn't anime!
It's not essential to the plot, but it is far more entertaining than people give it credit for, and many of the problems people have with it go away as it goes on.
>20th Anniversary of G Gundam
>No G Gundam BD remaster
>Sunrise still hasn't announced that they're animating the 14th Gundam Fight Tournament
>Sunrise still hasn't animated the G Gundam sequel manga that started 4 years ago
>None of the main cast in Build fighters use a gundam from G
>Sei uses a custom Strike instead of a custom Shining Gundam or God/Burning Gundam
>All the G cameos in BF are jobbers
>Still no master grade or high grade release for basically the entire G Gundam cast
>Extreme VS Full Boost game has only 4 G suits, and doesn't even have shining, despite having ALL of the 00 suits and even wing suits that never got screentime
Being G Gundam is sweet, yet suffering.
I think they really dropped the ball with that one. Then again, it's not part of the UC universe, and I've never known it to be very popular over the pond.
More Allenby. Why the fuck was she fucking around with that whiny bitch Domon anyways. Also, what happened to all the good G Gundam sites I used to go to? Sora's website, Shuffle Aliance, and I think now Devils Lair are all long gone, along with all the fan drawings and the handful of good fics.
But was it worth sitting through Moon-Moon?
As someone else who started Gundam and mecha in general with Wing, I am obliged to tell you that watching Gundam 00 is probably your best bet.
Like Wing it takes place in its own continuity separate from universal century so it doesn't require any priors to enjoy.
The mobile suit designs, as in Wing, are very creative and break the mold a good bit from past shows. But despite this, it is primarily a plot and character driven show with twists and reveals reminiscent of Code Geass.
The only negative thing about the show is that by the time season 2 rolls around, a lot of things that made the first season original and interesting get tossed aside in favor of more traditional Gundam themes. Not to mention the best MS in the series, Exia, is seen a whopping 2 times in the season. Exia was a bad ass, 7 sword swinging harbinger of death.
00/0 Raiser was the gary stu of mobile suits.
OP should skip ZZ. It's painful to watch and (arguably) isn't even considered canon anymore. Skipping directly to CCA from Zeta won't be a problem.
>not looking at the G Gundam /h/ thread going on right now
Saw it. Saw most of that shit ages ago. No based Allenby, no deal.
Don't got any saved. Besides, I dumped every chapter of Pretty Cool! the other day.
I cannot. They're too pure.
watch SEED, the only Gundam that is entertaining
>>None of the main cast in Build fighters use a gundam from G
>>Sei uses a custom Strike instead of a custom Shining Gundam or God/Burning Gundam
>>All the G cameos in BF are jobbers
I'm still hopping someone fucks up their mecha and has to pull out "that" and it ends up being something from G.
I watched the first episode of G gundam and didnt like it. The idea of gundam fist fighting really didnt appeal to me especailly after coming from Zeta gundam. Also i dont like it when the MC beats up a whole gang kills my immersion i cant stop but roll my eyes at that shit.
Oh please. Domon was a complete bitch at points.
It's funny because they won't give an ounce when it comes to G stuff, yet they can rape us repeatedly and spitroast us when it comes to wing, 00, and seed shit.
Please Bamco/Sunrise. Rape me more with needless wing shit.
>good MS designs
What? They all look like Happy Meal toys. Fucking SEED has better MS designs.
The obsession non-UC Gundam with using metal swords kills me inside.
He was an asshole at times, and dense as fuck because he was too busy looking for KIYOJIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. Slight difference.
It's super robot, bro. You've got to suspend your disbelief.
>non-realistic/not physically possible limb articulations everywhere
Unless their torsos are made of a magical flexible material, mechs in 00 and SEED move in a totally unrealistic manner.
>Bitching about realism in a show about giant robots
they'll be real one day r-right? ;_;
Holy shit, anon-kun. You are such a faggot
>kills my immersion
He's the king of fucking hearts. He's arguably one of the best fighters on the planet, and the best his country had to offer. His master won the last gundam fight. Did you not pay attention or something? A group of street thugs is nothing.
Skip to 3:00, you flaming homo.
>Fucking SEED has better MS designs
Yea you are right, its not a Gundam if it dosen't have a bunch of spiky shit coming off its back.
>The obsession non-UC Gundam with using metal swords kills me inside.
Plenty of beam weapons in 00 bro, the Exia's metal blades are a matter of PLOT remember? Its a gundam who can contend with other MS that utilize GN shield tech.
>The idea of gundam fist fighting
>kills my immersion
What's absolutely hilarious is that outside of outrageous shit like a fucking mobile suit for a horse, G Gundam is the most realistic gundam by far.
>real robot genre
>can't complain because robots
And then it dies in one hit. Badai hates G almost as much as it does G-Saviour.
What I don't understand, is why. Was it just unpopular in nipland? I know a lot of Americans eat gundam up.
>fucking mobile suit for a horse
>Real Robot and Super Robot
>Actually meaning anything outside of SRW
>roses are red
>violets are blue
Fuunsaiki is a real thing, anon.
SURE IS REAL ROBOT IN HERE
And it's magnificent.
Oh, I know. It just brings me joy every time I think of it.
OPEN YOUR EYES
Only for fun, enthusiasts and sports and stuff. not serious warfare. The human shape is an efficient body plan between about 1 meter tall and 3 meters tall. Bigger or smaller than that, and it's just not a useful design. Better to go with something simple, like a huge lump of armor with a gun on it (tank) or a flying lump of FAST with a gun on it (jet.) Legs and arms and an upright torso are unnecessary, and easy targets.
But hey, power armor's totally gonna happen. And giant robots are still COOL, they're just not realistic.
>Its burning grip tells me
>to defeat you!
Which makes no fucking sense because whenever bandai release G Gundam model kits, they sell like fucking hotcakes.
When they released the HG Noble Gundam a few years ago, it sold so fucking well they a new version with her berserker mode just because. And then when THAT sold well they put Noble on a poll on their site to decide which gundams should get the Master Grade treatment.
And it ended up doing really well on the online poll too, which was obviously answered by nips, and which is pretty shocking considering it's a feminine gundam in a giant robots doing giant robot things genre. Despite it doing well, they still didn't do a MG release.
It sucks because G sells well as far as model kits go. Bandai just won't admit it because it's not UC, and they made wing right after G.
Oh i dont give a shit if they arent used for actual warfare. I just want to be that guy who shows up to work in his mobile suit every day
>they're just not realistic
Tell that to the 1/1 scale gundam sitting outside in Tokyo.
Oh fuck you I laughed.
G Gundam gives me a lot of fuckin' feels.
>had a shitload of the gundam models
>watched every episode religiously
>somewhere I have the plastic Fuunsaiki still
>Brother won one of the Toonami contests, still has all his models somewhere
>all my models were destroyed by younger siblings. Am now a poorfag, and can't replace them.
It's a part of what got me into anime seriously, and I wish it would be taken even semi seriously. Still waiting for an answer on >>101329019
>what happened to all those sites I used to visit
Time happened, anon.
Well, at least SRW loves G Gundam, even though the Gundam games and bandai may not.
We need more giant robots riding giant robot horses.
G Gundam was great in SRW MX, too bad you couldn't recruit Master Asia in that one
>come into a Gundam recommendation thread
>12 posts in and it already becomes a G Gundam thread
I think you have your answer for recommendations, OP.
G-Gundam was the fucking pokemon of the franchise (at least until Build Fighters came out). It had some cool MS designs and that's about it.
Gundam is supposed to be about war and tactics and epic battles in space, not sissy tournament fights. G was nothing fight of the week crap to sell gunplay.
