I just finished Zeta Gundam.
Can we talk about this show, please? What are your favorite Mobile Suits from the series? Should I continue and watch ZZ, or is it shit? Will I have enough of an understanding to watch other Gundams, like Char's Counterattack and Unicorn?
Gundam general, I guess.
Watch ZZ, then CCA, then Unicorn.
Everyone's gonna have a different opinion on ZZ. Watch it to form your own.
Also my favorite suit in Zeta is easily the Hyaku Shiki.
Please tell me you at least watched 0079 first. ZZ is shit. CCA doesn't require ZZ. UC does. With Z done you can appreciate 0083. And if you haven't yet you should watch the two main OYW OVAs, 08th and 0080.
>What are your favorite Mobile Suits from the series?
Hyaku Shiki and Qubeley.
>Should I continue and watch ZZ, or is it shit?
Do it, ZZ is a lot of fun but very different from Zeta in tone. It's got a better cast and more natural dialogue, though.
>Will I have enough of an understanding to watch other Gundams, like Char's Counterattack and Unicorn?
Those are both worse than ZZ.
Gaplant is a sexy suit.
I did watch 0079.
I don't know if it's "necessary," but you should definitely have watched 0079. It takes a while to pick up, and you can pinpoint the *exact* episode they realized they could sell toys, but it picks up a neat Hunt for Red October vibe.
>ZZ is shit.
>With Z done you can appreciate 0083.
I always feel kinda left out in Gundam talks because I never get too attached to certain mobile suits or learn all their names and specs and stuff.
So I guess you could say, I watch Gundam for the plot.
Watch everything in production order. ZZ isn't that good but not extremely bad. Also 0080 is good.
Favourite pilot Yazan
Favourite movil suit, the first transformer wich name i dont remember right now.
About ZZ, im around episode 36 right now and i have to say that for exception of neo zeon is as bad as people say it its. NOW this only applies to the beggining, it does gets way better but you´ll need to wait at least until they hit space leaving the colonies 1 and Moon Moon behind
That's what I was planning on doing.
I just really want to watch Unicorn, that's the main reason I'm going through them all. I really hope it isn't a letdown.
How the FUCK do you like Yazan?
>Should I continue and watch ZZ, or is it shit?
As much as I liked Zeta, the first half of ZZ was quite a chore, but it got better when the Dublin Colony Drop arc begins. At least the cast grew on me and weren't retarded like the half of Zeta's cast. It's requires watching ZZ to watch Unicorn because Unicorn is Zeonwank.
That depends on if you have ideals or not.
How can you not like the man that killed one of the worst characters in all of Gundam?
How can you not?
Because for the other 29 episodes he was in he was a total cock
Are you one of those uber moralfags who doesn't like villains?
What do you mean by that?
Is it a lot of muh feelings?
He killed Katz and Reccoa. Fuck him for killing Henken and Emma though.
Na, I liked Char and Ramba Ral in 0079 and Jerid in Zeta. I liked Srirocco, too. It was nice to see him pinned down, though
It's basically a zeon fanfic.
It's a lot of Zeek propaganda.
Mk II with Titan paint, Messala, The O, Hyaku Shiki, Hambrabi and Gabthley.
The transforming suit that Yazan + 2 others had was the Hambrabi.
I have gunpla of the Zeta, Hambrabi, Super Gundam, and Hyaku Shiki. So you can probably tell that Zeta is my favorite. For me the coolest MS overall would be the Hyaku Shiki, and best fight being the one by the colony laser with Char, Haman, Kamille, and Sirocco.
Bare minimum watching for Unicorn:
But you should watch the OVAs as well. I haven't seen much of Unicorn yet but it probably references quite a few other Gundam shows besides these.
The Hyaki Shiki stuck with me. RG when.
Poor suit kicked the most ass in its life when piloted by shirtless Judau in one episode.
For enemy suits Byarlant and Palace Athene.
Rick Dias best non-Gundam MS in Zeta
Most of Unicorn's appeal is wrapped up in how it plays to nostalgia. It's gorgeous, and you won't have trouble following the plot, but you won't get the same kick out of seeing Haro and Char and intrigue if you aren't yet shitting bricks over the ガンダム universe.
OP, once you're once with UC you can hop on board GBF and catch the last half-cour of it with us. It's a great ride, don't let the m-m-muh toy sales mask fool you.
Wait, Char is in Unicorn?
Enjoy your gravity.
Elle is best ZZ.
Up to this day I don't get how Roux managed to snag the Jewdough from imouto and Elle.
>Char is in Unicorn?
He's dead in Unicorn.
That's a funny way to spell Dijeh
Chubby exhibitionist Char.
Well more like a char.
Ma migga, Dijeh is the fucking greatest.
Char's clone or something like that
HE IS A CHAR
Hambrabi was the MS insignia of Yazan, i like it too but it wasent the first. The first transforming MS that appeared on Z was orange and green, big as shit and scary as fuck. Although technically speaking MK II would be the first transforming MS in Z.
So he dies in Char's Counterattack?
Yes and so does Amuro
Who Full Boost in here?
You sure you want to get spoiled like this OP?
Fucking nigger what
Now I want to skip everything and watch CCA
That was my favorite earth fight of the series
P-PC master race. ;_;
Well it sort of already happened when I was told that Char died, and besides the fact that he "commited Sudoku" in Operation Maelstrom and he has his own OVA, it was safe to say something happens during CCA.
Finish ZZ first, than CCA.
Ore no buraza
It's pretty bad, honestly.
It trashes Char's character and has some absolutely awful supporting characters.
I feel that the comedic way he died gives the vibe that Sunrise enjoyed killing him off
This sexy fucker here
god it makes my mouth water
Zeta Gundam would have been one of the best UC series if the fights weren't so shitty
Why the fuck was every fight some laser firing and then some jackass grappling Kamille? Got fucking annoying
It was good for mecha porn. I wish it was at least 13 episode OVA instead of a movie.
The whole thing Char's butthurt about mommy getting NTR by Amuro was fucking annoying.
>It trashes Char's character
No it doesn't, pay more attention to how he acts between 0079 and Zeta, the only thing he actually cares about is beating Amuro.
So is it safe to say that Zeta is the best Gundam series?
I mean, I hear a lot of people say they like G Gundam, but I don't really even consider it a Gundam (I loved the shit out of it as its own anime, but not a Gundam).
>the best Gundam series
There is no safe way to say this.
I understand that, but he still comes off as a completely different character as he was in Zeta and becomes a generic as fuck villain.
To play off this point, during one of the few times Char sees Amuro in Zeta, he feels obligated to slam Amuro for what happened to Lalah
Yo. I'm getting the local anime FGC into it too.
You could say it's G-Saviour or F91 and you'll be safe because everyone will know you're joking.
No, Zeta's overrated as hell.
Best TV Gundam is Turn A, best OVA is 0080.
Best Gundam series is still 0079
If you must complain about the animation, either wait for Gundam: The Origin, or read the manga series of the same name
I actually think Zeta is pretty middle tier. Good, but it's something of a clusterfuck and I didn't think the central conflict was all that interesting.
Me, I like G Gundam, Turn A and 0079 the best. I also have a soft spot for 00, despite its issues.
Watch 08th MS team. It's great and will fit in fine since you've seen 0079. I can't really recommend anything else because ZZ is my next big UC series. From what I've been told, its worth trying but not 100% required for CCA or unicorn so don't be afraid to drop it if you hate it.
The best Gundam series is 0079 until the Origin.
>Mk-II in RX-78 colours
I wish they gave Amuro the MK. II instead of a Rick Dias
>talking about overrated
That and 8th MS Team are severely overrated
0080 actually deserves its praise, though.
Zeta is overrated from the yellow sub VHS days where it was rare as fuck and one of the early edgy grimderp mainstream mecha anime.
Beltorchika pls go
08th was the closest we got to a fun grunt squad anime. You take what you can get.
The OVAs are the best part of Gundam.
She said Amuro should get the Zeta. Because Kamille designed it he should pilot it. But Amuro would definitely make better use of the MK.II than Emma.
I hate how they teased the return of the original white base crew in Zeta, and then did nothing with them.
I found Amuro to be kinda like an autist when it comes war. He dosent bitch at people for being ordered to kill, like Camille or Judau did. He bitchs at people for being tired AFTER he killing around 50 Zakus. Aslo he only seems to smile when he is inside of the Gundam or fixing it
Sayla got a raw deal.
Psyco Gundam > Hyaku Shiki > Asshimar > Zeta Gundam > *
>muh squaddies muh grunts
>so dark so real
Does Psyco just mean that the Gundam can be controlled by the pilot's thoughts?
Eh. I'd be fine with cute EAF mechanics crew doing cute things during the OYW or a OYW MASH. Less starcrossed lovers and newtype hax, more SOL war stories please.
I liked the direction of Zeta much more than 0079, and it's paced better, but I didn't get anywhere near as attached to the Argama crew as I did to White Base. I also think the conflict in 0079 was more meaningful, with basically all of Earth and the colonies involved and half of mankind dead, while Gryphs was mostly a political conflict with a rogue police force.
So I'm kinda ambivalent. I probably enjoy watching Zeta more, but I like the content of 0079 and thinking about it/discussing it more.
I remember hearing somewhere that he was pissed at AEUG for not staying true to spacenoid ideals and allying themselves with the federation.
The movie was still a complete disappointment, though.
Gundam series needs a redo for most of the series because of voice actor deaths & projects being shifted around
I'd love there to be a Zeta Origin and then finish it as a trilogy with a CCA series to tie it in better
Psyco is short for Psycommu / psychic communication, so yes.
It was a newtype mobile armor, after all.
