So I just finished 08th MS Team and I'm not sure what to watch next. I'm pretty new to Gundam and mecha in general but I liked 08th MS Team.
It's not the most recent, but it's the only one i have. But yeah, the standard here is production order. If you got no problem with older artstyles, start with MSG/0079 and continue from there.
>Let's you get to Zeta quicker
fuck you faggot, why are you watching Gundam just to say you've watched, if you're going to watch Gundam then watch Gundam to watch Gundam
don't skip shit
just watch the tv series you nerd faggot
Then watch the original Gundam. Either the series or the trilogy, whatever you want, don't listen to the faggots here. The movies are great, especially if you're not yet "in" gundam.
Then you can watch 0080 and 0083 before Zeta, and then just keep going from there.
Look at it this way:
If he watches the films and likes it, he can still step up to the fully expanded story in the series. If he watches the series first, then the movies are only recap episodes with some new animation.
I would never tell someone not to watch the series, but there's nothing wrong with starting with the films.
One thing, though: the english dub in the films is terrible, while the one for the series is very good. If you're going to watch the films for any reason other than to laugh at them, watch them subtitled.
TRY the gundam movies. Watch the first one. If you are able to handle the terrible pacing, continue. If not, pick up the tv show from where movie 2 begins.
Or read the Origin manga.
Then just do the rest of UC at your discrerion. Avoid Wing, Age and seed destiny and have fun k bye
I agree with this, I honestly like the movie trilogy better than the TV series. And it's far easier to sit through for a newcomer.
>let's you get to Zeta quicker
This will only leave you wishing Zeta also had a movie trilogy to would just let you skip that entire piece of shit
>lets you get to zeta quicker
Is worse than
>hurry up and get to CCA
You're watching for the fucking series, not to check off tickboxes. Watch the TV series, in its entirety. There is no reason not to. You are not dying.
>This will only leave you wishing Zeta also had a movie trilogy to would just let you skip that entire piece of shit
hey fuck you, buddy
Zeta did have a movie trilogy though.
TV Zeta is great, the movies are'nt nearly as good of a substitute for it as the movies are.
The best 0079 route is this imo
Either first stretch of the TV series or the first movie.
The episodes that cover the middle section.
Encounters in Space
Encounters of Space is one of the pinnacles of Mecha Anime imo. The ending music gives me chills every time.
