F91 was meant to be some sort of long-term continuation of UC that fell apart behind the scenes and was nothing more than a short theatrical movie, V was nice but happened before Tomino realized alternate universes were a thing and could be applied to the Gundam franchise with minimum consequences. Victory easily could have been a AU with the show still being 99% the same.

Considering BanRise was basically strong-arming another Gundam show out of him at that point, I don't imagine he was terribly concerned about consequences to the timeline.

This is a legitimate point. Pre-Unicorn we see four major wars over the course of twenty years. Post-Unicorn we see three major wars over the course of sixty years. The situation got better. War didn't completely vanish, sure, but on the whole the world was a more peaceful place.

no it didnt, the movie was always marketed as final battle between Char and Amuro, nothing more. the actual plot did nothing to resolve the issue of spacenoid independence or how to bring peace to the world, it was just something that just happened between CCA and F91.

Victory and f91 share just as many themes, technological similarities and story elements with early UC as something like Unicorn.
The difference is they aren't just jamming down blatant cameo after blatant cameo as far down your throat as they can so they can make sure the chuuni's see Unicorn as a 'sequel' by their narrow definition of the word. (And of course so they can sell extra kits to nostalgiafags)

Not really. They were fought between tiny factions that had ships in the dozens, whereas the OYW had ships in the hundreds. Even if you include some massacres like the Titans gassing a colony or Dublin being destroyed it's probably more comparable to the genocide of the Frontier colony in F91. Small beans compared to the OYW

What's a deep message in your opinion out of interest?

Gundam was not all about Gunpla until 1993 when Bandai bought Sunrise. The Gunpla is actually what financed the show after the huge flop in 1979. These shows need to sell to justify for the money producers spent on it. But they doesn't exist just for that.

I know it, but the kid is basically a self-insert for the average modeller (he goes out on the battlefield to know more about weapons, he likes to collect stuff, he starts "opinion wars" about GMs and Zakus), then you see him dropping this attitude after the Bernie's death and it is like the anime is telling you that his attitude was, not only childish, but something to be ashamed (because yeah, a Gundam is not cool anymore if it makes hamburgers from you BFF). then you see Bandai dropping ~10 plamos of units that had 2 minutes top of screentime from a 6 episode long series.

the contrast between thinking mechs are cool and the horrors of war was something done since the beginning by Tomino. It wasn't just 0080, 0080 just rehashes the same theme. Tomino's been doing that message since Zambot. We the viewer as mecha fans dream of being a pilot and would embrace the opportunity, but as Kappei, Amuro, Kamille etc. showed, there are consequences to piloting a very cool mecha. You could end up traumatized after saving the world with no tangible award. (like fame and fortune). but the mechs are cool, that's part of the main appeal. just like Tomcats are cool but actually flying them is risky and dangerous.
>>
>>11148668
>>11148881
and behind the scenes Tomino has always butted heads with executives and sponsors that wanted more emphasis on the plamo. He never let that get in the way of telling a story. But the mechs are cool so they need proper screen time. It won't feel like an epic war of attrition if you don't have constant battles every episode.

Nothing, this thread is retarded. Mineva was trying to usher in the new century without the plague of Zeon and the curse of the Box.

Anyone that thinks she was trying to put an end to war is an idiot. She's good-intentioned, but not naive.

Besides, the Crossbone conflict, in spite of it going on for a full five years, was so uneventful that the Federation literally sat it out and let it work itself out for the ENTIRE "war." I think in the grand scheme of things, about four or five colonies total were affected. The Crossbone Vanguard was a fucking joke.

You think 0080 was supposed to be some kind of morality piece, and not just a character based story? It's about how the characters develop, not sitting around saying how war is something to never respect or be interested in. Al wasn't a military otaku who ended the series by burning all his display pieces, he just didn't understand what war was.

The main thing people get wrong is this part. The same people who don't realize military museums sell tank kits and sometimes have cockpit sitting photo sessions. You don't have to hate everything about war just cause you know what it is. Tanks are still cool.

Besides, if it wanted to make war look so bad, it wouldn't have such awesome fight animation. I still love watching the fights even if I know how sad they are at the same time. Doesn't this mentality mean you also have to hate every military series not paced like Jarhead?

Maybe I missed that. It would make sense considering the whole "I'm a vessel of the people's wishes" stuff.

I took as Frontal was a clone of Char, with his memories, but is aware he isn't actually Char, just a copy. Frontal isn't possessed by Char's consciousness, but influenced by Char's memories and personality implanted in the cloning process. Frontal's consciousness is then sent to the same plain where Char's is as a result of Banagher's will in super saiyin newtype mode.

0080 is one of the most down to earth gundams and basically the only one where the characters talk like real people.

Unicorn's characters CONSTANTLY go on long philosophical tangents about life, the universe an everything. It's also basically sets itself up to be the ultimate conclusion to the Zeon/Federation conflict and the great explanation for everything early-UC. THAT'S pretension.

>>11146478
F91 and victory show the slow decay of the Federation after being weakened by contant wars and the result of the autonomy the colonies always wanted so bad: A bunch of small warring states and Zeon wannabes.

Yes, but it sounds like it's so far ahead that any of the UC series basically wont matter and it might as well be a clean slate.

The Federation, for example don't even exist anymore. I think they just go with the "this is a continuation of the UC universe" pretense as a ploy to get UCfags to be more interested in it. Otherwise it sounds like it could be an AU no problem.

The only real tangible benefit that Unicorn adds is clearing up Amuro and Char's fates for good. And even then that can always be retconned by Sunrise if they need it.

F91 got screwed over by Sunrise and Bandai's merger and behind the scenes production issues as a result of that, which nixed its chances.

Victory simply takes place in further away from it and places emphasis on the conflict like F91, no longer centers around Zeon or Zeon remnants.

And yet some faggots still being denial about it

>>11150678
yes. you'd only notice it if you watched the Japanese version. Otherwise you'd miss it since his ghost is formless unlike Char's and Lalah's
>>
>>11150678
You clearly hear Amuro exchange a line with Char while beyond the time, its pretty clear-cut now what happened after CCA.

>>11150687
Not having Ocean Group doing the dub was unfortunate. Honestly, I can't stand Unicorn's dub. Everyone sounds so flat, except for Angelo. And whose bright idea was it for Steve Staley to be a third Gundam protag?

Wasn't that scene at the "end of the time"? Sunrise can always say that Amuro was dead at the "end of the time", not during the "present time".
>>
>>11150721
that would be way too pushing it. since the scene before it was clearly his soul coming from the Nu Gundam.

Though I'd like to see the faces of the UC elitists after Amuro is resurrected.

Unicorn is fine. All that happened was a few skirmishes involving terrorists and a propaganda speech.

There was no colony drop or mass rise of another Zeon force. The princess of Zeon said some pretty things on television and no one cared.

0083 is a far bigger offender of pretending to be important but being completely irrelevant. They try to explain how the Titans came to be but completely fail to present any sort of logical sequence of events topped off by a colony drop that makes it impossible for 0083 to be canon since in Zeta, ZZ, and CCA no map of Earth shows any kind of colony drop damage in North America.

At least Gato could be called a real villain, unlike Full Frontal.
>>
>>11150995
Gato was just a retarded zealot who could barely be considered any better than a villain of the week. Everything in 0083 was Jamitov pulling the strings.

The problem with Full Frontal is his pseudo-supernatural association with Char.

Full Frontal is just a politician looking to flip the economic balance and turn the colonies into a new Federation while also being a capable pilot. In essence he's the same kind of character as the other political leaders of radical reformation organizations in UC.

Unicorn's problem has always been execution. 0083s problem is that everything about it is retarded and the most interesting parts of the story happen so far off screen that the main story is pointless.
>>
>>11150963
>>11151011
The weird thing about 0083 was that Jamitov wasn't even the guy in charge of the conspiracy, it was like some other Fed admiral that I can't remember what happened to.

is this in unicorn or something else Im curious spoiler it for me if you have to

I always liked that about Seabook and Usso.

Everyone else is all "muh ideals/understanding" and then these guys are all like, "Man, I just want my waifu."

Ironically, this is exactly what Banagher was doing the whole time with Mineva, and people still give him shit.

The one time he tried UNDERSTANDING, it backfired horribly, and he never tried again after that.

This is why I think /m/ is like a special needs child whenever they bitch about UNDERSTANDING in Unicorn; a big theme in Unicorn is that UNDERSTANDING is overrated and you can't rely on it to stop conflict. No one person or group can stop conflict, it's simply not something you can predict or stop. The only thing you can do as an individual is be the best person you can possibly be and trust the potential of other people to do the same. Be an example for others and be there to help those you care about. It's just a more optimistic take on the theme of human nature in Gundam, as opposed to the usual bleak one.

Long story short, Unicorn's just telling you to stop being such goddamn misanthropes.

Maps don't show giant craters unless they're filled with water afterwards.

Also 0083 is canon since Mobile Suits from that show appeared in the Zeta movies, which is the canon timeline.

Fuck off.

Not the "0083 is canon" part, but the "Zeta movies are canon timeline part." I swear, this bait is getting so old.
>>
>>11152647
But it's not bait or trolling when it's true.

The fact you go just cover your ears and go 'lah lah lah' proves that.
>>
>>11147369
>Pretentious garbage that should have never been animated.
Listen, pal. Trolling is supposed to be subtle. ie. don't attack a legitimately good show, don't reduce your arguments to catchphrases, and please, don't use that goddamn fucking "P word".
>>
>>11147453
>notice how the world has had wars since the last World War which was supposed to be the last great conflict in human history
It was, in a sense. One huge war between superpowers kills more people than several smaller ones. The statistics prove it: the 20th century (especially the second half) is the most peaceful period in recorded history.

>>11152666
A New Translation is an alternate timeline. The canon course of events is the anime series for the simple reason that AnT's finale contradicts everything about ZZ.
>>
>>11152806
Hit a nerve?
>>
>>11152853
Which logically means both ZZ AND Unicorn are part of the alternate timeline.
>>
>>11148668
>and it is like the anime is telling you that his attitude was, not only childish, but something to be ashamed
What? Did you watch Bernie's farewell video or not? The message is that you shouldn't be holding on to hate.

>I think I can almost touch the hypocrisy of this anime and its "message" and I feel a bit insulted.
It's not hypocrisy when you separate the storytelling interests from the corporate ones. War In The Pocket is only the most contrasting example in Gundam, but there are many others elsewhere.

>>11148597
>while spamming gunplas kits pisses me off a little bit.
>then you see Bandai dropping ~10 plamos of units that had 2 minutes top of screentime from a 6 episode long series.
It's a neccesary evil in the case of anime. See >>11148889: Gundam would've been cancelled if Tomino hadn't inserted idiotic garbage like the G-Armor to please the sponsors.
And this "pure art/corporate garbage" is a false equivalence.

>and the fact 0080 tries so hard to be "deep"
I don't see where it's the "trying hard to be deep". I'd argue that is the case in Unicorn or SEED. 0080 is very straightforward and not explicitally preachy until the very end.

On that note. Did Katejina have some sort of autistic spectrum disorder? People in Victory except some of obviously insane people were pretty neurotypical.

How she acted in the beginning of the series and future actions.

I am just lead to come to the conclusion that she was a unstable girl from bad home who got involved in the perfect storm.
>>
She was a sociopath, not an autist. But that too; basically, she had the evil and was given the opportunity to use it.
>>
>>11155871
But anon, the internet told me that anybody with the slightest bit of emotional unbalance or strangeness to their character is autistic! The internet are trained psychologists, they know what they're talking about.

Personally, I think Katejina's obsession with Uso sort of reflects Asperger's Syndrome. Her home conditions in Prague might have been part of it but I assume she suffered trauma from being taken from her only friend (one which she's protective over), then from being dragged off the Earth.

Her line to him at the final battle, where she asks if after all that had happened he would take her anyway, kind of showed how all of the distance she'd spent from Uso continued to build this convoluted image of him. She begs for her own death because of "the perfect storm" as you put it.

And certainly don't forget that the Angel Halo was clearly fucking with her brain by the end of the series.
>>
>>11155799
I think the scenes to establish her character was just missing for some reason. Heard she was better written in the novel where she became a cyber-newtype after being saved by Chronicle.

Then what about that shot of Amuro's char at the end of #7 during Minerva's transmission?

>Zeta movies canon
inb4 butthurt and "muuuh zz canon"
>>
>>11156079
She did that to stab uso in the back though.
>>
>>11156138
The comment had a layer of honesty in my eyes, even if she was using her menial feelings to manipulate Uso's intimate feelings.
