Explain me why you've watched 30 season of Gundam.
It's the Call of Duty on anime: same shit reharsed every time.
>>
>>13712758
because it has robots hitting each other
>>
>>13712758
Because I have hope that it can be good again, and it was, just a year ago.
>>
>>13712758
I enjoy it.
Bye /v/
>>
G Call of Duty was amazing.
>>
Because each time, although derivative, it has its own unique spin.
The ride is almost always worth the time put in.

Plus new gunpla
>>
>>13712758
Never played Call of Duty.
>>
>>13712758
Because we're hoping we get another truly successful series in the vein of UC, SEED, Wing, or 00.

Only to be disappointed time and again. Just like all CoD games.

>Implying /m/ isn't masochistic to not want another SEED or Wing to endlessly shitpost about while having a massive hateboner.
>Implying /m/ isn't tsundere for SEED and Wing and it's all they ever remember when discussing other Gundam series.
>Implying /m/ doesn't constantly compare everything to SEED or Wing even if it's not a Gundam series.

Face it; /m/ wants another SEED and Wing. Another successful series for all the wrong reasons that they can legitimately remember and shitpost about for years to come.

They of course also want another UC and 00; another UC sidestory animated and another new Gundam series that actually does something different enough while balancing action and drama with a relatively consistent plot and pacing, at least for the initial season.

Anyway, Gundam 0096: G-Define when? It has two shotas and a loli.
>>
>>13712912
>another UC and 00

so Thunderbolt and Iron blooded Orphans?

>actually love these 2
>>
>>13712926
Thunderbolt yes. Almost no shitposting about it; just praise or legitimate constructive criticism (even in the manga threads prior to the anime).

IBO no. Majority of complaints is about how slow it is and lack of development outside of characters. Just like the majority of complaints about AGE and G-Reco were that they were too rushed and lacking development or rushing development of both setting and characters.
>>
>>13712912

It's why Cross Ange was so popular. People really tried to force it as "THIS IS ANOTHER B-B-BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY"
>>
I'm waiting for when they'll have an animated series with a female main character

>>13712943
Cross Ange was so terribad it was hilarious and worth watching as a result.
>>
>>13712943
>People really tried to force it as "THIS IS ANOTHER B-B-BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY"
That's because it was.
Only /a/utists praise it like it was actually good
>inb4 muh so bad its good
>inb4 no fun
>>
>>13712943
It also helps that Cross Ange had decent mechs and music and potential.

I mean, very few ever shitposted about the music and mecha, and only shitposted about the potential it had (before straight-up shitposting over everything else), which is also something that SEED and Wing also have going for them.

The sheer wasted potential with otherwise decent mecha and music and sometimes setting keeps /m/ circular discussing SEED to death, and to a lesser extent, VVV, Wing, and Cross Ange.

Aside from the legitimately memorable series like most of UC and 00, it's the legitimately bad ones that had high potential that /m/ remembers.

I mean, /m/ mostly hates AGE more than SEED, but never found as much potential in it compared to SEED, if all the discussion since AGE is to go by, which invariably devolved more into discussion over SEED, whether it was shitposting or more how to improve SEED, or what things did many actually like about SEED (and ironically, it was SEED's potential many liked, after mecha or music).
>>

What's there to shitpost about the mechs? They're ugly pieces of shit.

Well I mean yeah, it had potential to be funny, which it was, but I knew straight away it wouldn't be good.
>>
Because the designs.

Fuck Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and ∀ Gundam though. The designs in them were shit.
>>
>>13713136

I will give you Tieria's suits, not the rest though.

>>
>>13713163
>>13713172
>implying I'm a newfag

Let me explain. I hate the 00 designs simply because, what's the word I'm looking for. Edgy? I mean the litteral sense of the word. Sharp-edged. So many angles. The designs are so far from the norm of what you'd expect of Mobile Suits.

Now as for Turn A. As a Gundam show, yeah. If it wasn't, they'd be good designs.
>>
>>13713187
So just because they're different they're bad? Or do you actually not like the way they look?

For 00 I simply do not like the looks. Exia to me is just.. wow.

I think what that anon is trying to say is something like there's too much going on/ Or overdesigned. Or something.

Overdesigned
>>
>>13713216
Thank you. Sorry for the confusion.
>>
>>13713212
>>13713216
But it's not.
>>
>>13713197
You mean overly detailed probably.

It was because of that that S2 had to really cut down on the details in the designs, because attempting to keep it consistently animated was one issue the team had with S1.

If anything though, Katoki's designs are even more detailed than Ebikawa's designs. I love them both for the overly detailed designs though.
>>
>>13713224
I guess. I don't know. All I know is that I just don't like the designs. To me it's like going from G1 to Michael Bay
>>
>>13713224
Look at all the moving parts and unnecessarily drastic angles... they are only there for the "ZOMG KEWL GENDUM" factor
They are definitely over designed..
Compared to other robot designs, they are visually jarring.
There isn't an English word to describe why the design elements are flawed and visually unappealing... but they are
>>
>>13713231
Are you saying you don't like them because you think they look cool?
>>
>>13713250
They are too cool, which makes them visually jarring.
My brain cannot process all of what is going on with the design aesthetic..
It's too busy
>>
>>13713250
That suit has too much going on.. compare it to like the f91 for example... completely different

I can understand being too plebeian to appreciate the Turn A, and I can sort of see where you're coming from with 00, but this is another level.

Please kill yourself.

/m/ is full of manchildren who will watch a series just to buy toys of it afterwards and to feel like they're apart of a fanbase. Thus, they trample all non-Sunrise discussion and will defend even the worst Gundam series to the bitter death while false-flagging as Mazinger/Getter Robo/Evangelion(insert old super robot show here) fans to give the series a worse reputation here even if it's hardly ever discussed in the first place. I assume most also (or mainly) browse /a/ and aside from Sunrise series hardly watch any non-current mecha anime, if any at all. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that aside from Gundam, they'll watch anything that's airing right now for "le hype and waifus XD", hell, I'm constantly impressed by how many OPM fans there are on this board right now.

The average Gundam fan isn't too different from your average tumblrite come to think of it. I'm not going to get into how bandai and sunrise cheated gundam to the top of the industry and likely "convinced" Banpresto to off other franchises from SRW to ensure Gundam stayed on top, because then I'll just enrage myself and it's likely I'm just paranoid anyway

You can shitpost at me now. I'm done. I'm done with this board, done like you'd never believe.

Yeah, I won't miss you either.

Only Gundam series I've watched are Original, Zeta, Stardust Memory, Turn A and Build Fighters.

Am I really not missing much by not watching the others?

00 is awesome, it has really cool suits, and a unique story

You watched 0079 and Zeta but didn't bother with CCA, the conclusion?

Also G is prety cool kung fu robots

G is fucking amazing
>>
>>13715472
Why do all of you G-fags migrate to /m/... go to /tv/ or something.
Nobody likes G gundam. It was a shit tier kids show with shit tier writing.
Stop spreading your cancer to newfags. Don't make them waste their time watching inferior shit.
>>
>>13713264
this is a joke right?
>>
>>13712758
I watched through F91. I liked the original, but overall I agree, it's total shit, especially Zeta. Most of the people who discuss it are total sophomores to boot
>>
>>13715325
>Wall of text about a simple robot show
Yeah, nah. I'm skipping this shit.
>>
>>13715449
Get your hands on pretty much everything you can find UC related and give a chance to Wing, G and X.
>>
>>13715576

What is better ?

>>13712758
Gundam after 30 years has kept it fresher and different more than Star Wars has.

80s ovas and high literature, not pulpy scifi/fantasy novels
