What is the general opinion of Gundam 00 here? I just finished watching it, and loved it. I saw both Gundam Wing and Gundam 00 and feel that Gundam 00 should be shown in Cartoon Network as well. It could have the same impact as Wing had on kids.
First half was slow, boring and shit. Second half was faster and more action packed, but still shit.
I like fapping to that one chick with the big bazookas
It was my first and last Gundam series.
Only S1 was good, rest was UC pandering shit. Movie only looked OK, but
>aliens in muh Gundam
doesn't every girl in Gundam 00 have big tits?
There is an /m/ board if you want extensive disscusion son. We watch Gundam BF currently here.
It has Soma for those of us who like DFC
>Not watching Mobile Suit Gundam
>Not singing along to Amuro~ furimukanaide~
It's pretty good. I liked both seasons and the movie equally. Next to BF, I'd say it's the best Gundam series since Turn A. The hate's way overblown.
>not watching Build Fighters
Is Build Fighters any good?
Best kids show regarding production values and animation for a long time, if not ever. Most references will go over your head, but still many people in the threads are Gundam newfags and they are enjoying it.
>aliens in muh Gundam
There's nothing wrong with that, they were just ridiculously overpowered and tedious to watch. They were a cool idea, they would have worked if they were actually killable.
>First half was slow
The pacing was fine. If you want to talk "slow", try watching Turn A.
>were actually killable.
But WERE actually killable.
Too lazy to think, so just copypasta from something I wrote after watching this shit:
According to some people this is one of the best out of all Gundam series... Which pretty much means I won't be watching much of the other stuff.
It started out good, and I wouldn't say it got bad, but in the end I had this "so is this it?" feeling. After finishing 25 episodes it felt like I only watched 12 episode series. Maybe I'll update this after watching S2, maybe it makes more sense after S2, whatever. Some of the development just made me scream "oh not THIS shit again" in my mind.
Watched S2 and movie few weeks later, I guess it's still recommended, while S2 didn't disappoint, it wasn't something too amazing either. Movie is ok I guess, though definitely not standalone material.
>If you want to talk "slow", try watching Turn A.
I keep hearing how people dislike the first half of Turn A, but I enjoyed the Moonrace/Earthian politics and unconventional Mobile Suit battles. When they finally headed for space, that's when it felt like things were dragging on.
There was certainly a lot more action, but it wasn't as appealing as the battles before they left for the Zacktraeger.
All I remember from 00 is that S1 Sumeragi is the hottest Gundam chick ever
00 is entry-level Gundam. The original is where you should start, no question about it
Sumeragi's great, but she's got nothing on Soma or Feldt.
>According to some people this is one of the best out of all Gundam series
It isn't. It's reasonably polished, and certainly entertaining to watch but it's far from being one of the best Gundam series.
It's my personal favorite AU Gundam series. Also Exia is Sexia.
Soma/Marie is great. I loved their interactions.
Feldt is boring
It's a shame what they did to the Exia in Build Fighters. I love the Exia too, but the Dark Matter looks atrocious.
It turned me off too much to start another series, but I might try again someday.
Pfft! HAHAHA! Not unless you like "disco gun" censorship.
I could understand how you'd think that about Feldt. I mean, she wasn't that interesting in the first season, but when Lockon, Christina, and Lichty die I genuinely started feeling bad for her. Then came the second season where she got a lot cuter since she started opening up more to her crew members. Then she went full dere for Setsuna and I absolutely loved her then.
Oh fuck me I remember that shit.
But think of the children!
That pic is adorable. Saved.
As someone who had seen no Gundam before watching it, it was pretty good. I think I liked season 1 more than season 2.
Best 00 girl right here.
Your not alone. The show does gets more polarising as it goes on, though I was one of those who enjoyed it throughout.
Not the other guy, but thank you, I was looking for something like that.
I watched 00 , wing, unicorn, 0079 and currently watching zeta. I blew it by watching uniporn as my first UC.
I'm still in love with her and it's been 4 years since I watched 00
Can't argue with that
It was the best political analysis anime made.
>never seen Patlabor
>never seen Hotaru no Haka
>never seen Z Gundam
At least 00 better than LOGH though
>good example of politics
0079 was the Gundam that did it best
I'm from /m/ so I've seen all of those and I think 00 has a more modern analysis of politics than any of those.
Setsuna is a Kurd. I myself am a Kurd from Iraq.
This was the first time the MC had the same origin as me.
I fled from Iraq at the age of 9 before the USA invaded Iraq and I saw plenty of war myself and I could totally relate to Setsuna.
For this reason alone Gundam 00 became my favourite anime. Also I loved the op/eds
It aired on Syfy a few years ago.
It's my favorite AU Gundam. Fuck Sunrise executives for making it into a Zeta ripoff.
Wang was the best Gundam 00 girl.
S2 a shit. Movie a bigger shit.
