I'd rather have gorgeous still frames and stock footage than Persona 4 Golden levels of QUALITY and ugly stock footage.
>Enemy suits are a mixed bag in both series, but 00 solidly beats Wing in terms of actual Gundam design.
00s Gundams were all exceptionally samey and looked like a Gundam Sentai team.
> looked like a Gundam Sentai team
And this fucking didn't? Nigga you are smoking crack
Gundam Wing, for better or for worse, has the best animation out of any AU so far.
Fuck that. Wing's art direction can go and stay go. Good color coordination though, way better than 00's haphazard blues and whites.
>00s Gundams were all exceptionally samey
If you're blind, maybe. The only Gundams that actually looked notably alike were the Thrones, which were that way because their whole gimmick was that they were supposed to be the samefag knockoff Gundams.
And they were some of 00's weaker designs, admittedly.
's haphazard blues and whites
lolwut? Each line has its own color scheme. Exia is blue and white, Dynames is green and white, Virtue is black and white, and Kyrios is orange and white.
I've been here longer than you newshit, and that's long enough to remember the 00 QUALITY threads.
G Gundam - shit (I like it but it looks like shit)
Wing - decent
SEED - shit
SEED Destiny - shit
SEED Remasters - shit
Gundam AGE - exceptionally shit
Gundam 00 - exceptionally shit
IBO - shit
All the AUs look awful.
This whole conversation started with Wing's animation being praised in >>13750603. Not its static images, or its visuals as a whole, but specifically its animation. Which is an area in which Wing falls decidedly short.
Looking specifically at the shows' animation, Wing is handily outdone by 00, AGE, and GBF.
>AGE and 00 have better animation than Wing. The rest are indeed worse though.
There isn't a single anime series that AGE looks better than. And again, 00 looks bad enough to have been made by a studio like A1.
>G is about on par with Wing in terms of animation.
You need to rewatch G Gundam anon.
>Gundam Wing, for better or for worse, has the best animation out of any AU so far.
Are you retarded? Its pretty much at the bottom rung only beating out SEED and Destiny. Art style is fine but art style=/=animation.
But Wing had drastically better animation that AGE, it looks like a cheap hentai. 00 looked better than AGE but not by much.
Didn't even register as a Gundam anime to me, I guess you're right on that count.
It's pretty obvious that you're just delusional. Again, animation != art.
AGE has plenty of decently animated battles, and so does 00. G mostly consists of still frames and panning just like Wing.
>There isn't a single anime series that AGE looks better than
Okay are you aware we're talking about actual animation here? Plot, characters, character designs and practically everything else it gets wrong aside, AGE actually does have a fair amount of well-animated fights
AGE looks awful. People think the animation was good because they liked the choreography, but they totally forget about how every AGE Gundam (MS in general really) was overly simple to the point of looking like a boxy Nagai structure but without the differentiation that makes a Mazinger. These shitty designs were somehow still animated poorly 100% of the time despite the fact that they were designed the way they were so as not to fuck the animation team over like 00's designs.
They both have pisspoor animation. The 90s TV gundams are all about on the same level of animation (Turn A being notably better). The difference is in the art direction, choreography, etc. For example, Victory has shit animation, but the battles were generally pretty good because of the choreography.
>literally pointing out animation
>"no man you're just mistaking animation for art"
Holy Christ anon
Nothing special, but it's better than most of the animation in Wing.
I like 00 all around, but I think G despite being the most radical departure from the Gundam baseline was the best AU. X and Turn A pretty good too, Wing? Its alright, its not bad but I think it gets a little too much hype. I think its funny that it's got worse animation than Victory.
Because I never see hype for the show here. Ever. Wing used to get a ton of hype with large threads but recently? No. Unless it's the same few posters, Wing gets tons of hate here. ANN is shit and this whole people only like Wing because of nostalgia things needs to stop. 00 is more of a nostalgia affair for people than Wing at this point.
If we're not counting Turn A as an AU Gundam then season one of 00 is the best for sure.
>Wing's animation and MS design
Wing's suits look like toys. And the exia is god tier so I don't know why you wouldn't want it.
As much as I love the Exia, I can see people taking legitimate issue with a few design cues. The head, for one, can be off-putting. As can the GN design cues like the jewels and the ribbons.
>still the best AU Gundam?
it never was to begin with
>Wing has bad animation
Found the memers
>Wing's suits look like toys.
Want to know how I know 00 was your first Gundam?
>And the exia is god tier
Exia is the most overrated gundam design in the franchise's history. Even worse is the fact that it has lead to the awful IBO designs.
>Exia is the most overrated gundam design in the franchise's history
You're forgetting someone here.
>Even worse is the fact that it has lead to the awful IBO designs
Washio didn't design Sexia.
Also, Throne Drei a literal shit, but Barbs is sexy. Although only it and the Grazes are good imo.
>Soma become the Arche's pilot on her own.
This thing? How would that have worked out?
Even though she had no piloting skills or experience, it still would have made so much more sense than a convenient identical twin brother.
She was also the cutest.
Even though I prefer S2 myself, I agree that S1 is pretty high on the AU tier list.
This really would have fitted more, honestly.
It would have been nice to see, but she was never really a central character to begin with so I didn't think it was that great a loss as some people.
Plus, I was more worried they were going to replace Setsuna in S2 considering the fickleness of the Japanese fanbase (and the unfortunate precedent set by Destiny).
Reading through this thread is giving me a severe case of Autism.
>G Gundam - shit (I like it but it looks like shit)
>Wing - decent
>SEED - decent
>SEED Destiny - shit
>SEED Remasters - better but still shit
>Gundam AGE - exceptionally shit
>Gundam 00 - decent
>IBO - TBD
Fixed that for you.
>probably until we get another kung-fu Gundam series
I mean, we got one, it just wound up being One Punch Gundam.
Why are the Arche's arms so damn long? I don't mind the rest of the design, but those are arms are ugly. And the shoulder connection is just a cube. And it needed more surface detail to break all the red.
>SEED - decent
>SEED Remasters - better but still shit
They were in terms of character design, but even taking into the account what >>13752113 said about stock footage, you're still missing around 20% of the picture in most scenes because of cropping.
And don't even get me started on the retarded retcons...
Nah. One Punch Gundam would have had the MC be ridiculous but wholly unappreciated, yet still abiding by an unwavering moral compass and steadfastly promoting the ideals of Gunpla.
"I just do this for fun."
SEED Remaster got BRAND NEW STOCK footage! That was a meme some anons on 2chan found when the Blu Rays (which also have scene changes from the Youtube Remaster release) came out.
>wing has poor animation
That's bull shit, wing has some the best animation. There's many scenes that have extremely detailed in-between frames.
this cropping thing is over blown. Most of the scenes were re-drawn entirely on the Blu Ray
I can post tumblr gifs too
those are not from the OP
The ones from the OP are even better looking.
Everyone loved Yuuki and revered his Gunpla skills. The equivalent of Saitama would appear to be some nobody scrub with an even more bland looking Gunpla that nevertheless absolutely wrecks the shit of everyone he fights.
Like, he'd field a Zaku II. MAYBE with a cape.
Never mind. I found the perfect suit. I also now know what my next Gunpla project is going to be.
This so hard this
You sir are a man of fine taste
while each part of to show us different in its theme and quality as a whole gundam00 is a great show that left me pretty satisfied at the end for the most part
Also WHERES ARE HG GNX-IX BANDAI?!??
People confuse a lot of stock animation with poor animation. For Example, IBO has a lot of shitty animation while Wing has a lot of reused good animation. Also, Endless Waltz looks amazing.
>And the exia is god tier
I think you just have terrible aesthetic opinions.
It's pretty fucking stupid looking in the legs and torso (head and arms are good though).
The giant stupid green circles are not aesthetically pleasing, and similarly the shield is just way too stylized to be acceptable.
There was some dude posted on /m/ before with a link to CAD Tallgeese parts he 3d-prints or something. They're fairly pricy, but they turn the MG Tallgeese into a real Leo, complete with machine gun.
...But could Setsuna beat my main man Kira "Fucked Your Bitch" "Jesus Christ" Yamato, the best pilot with the strongest machine in gundam?
Didn't think so.
Checkmate, but feel good about yourself, it's what Special K would want.
>Also, Endless Waltz looks amazing
Different production than the TV shows with much better production value and effort.
IBO should be THE Gundam show people would talk about when asked about QUALITY and shit animation.
Yes. Because Kira can't hit Setsuna when he uses a quantum drive to ACTUALLY ASCEND TO A HIGHER DIMENSION.
Seriously, Kira would do his, "I fire a bajillion beams of lasers at you, lol gundam seed animation reused forty million times, lol" and Setsuna Quantum FUCKING leaps behind him and puts a sword through his cockpit.
>If only Hallelujah had stayed dead too
I don't mind that they brought him back, but I do mind that after completing his side story that we only got to see Super Soldier Allelujah two times in the entire 00 story
