Too many gundam that are long and so I just want to compile a list of what /m/'s favourite gundam's are so I can pick one I can invest 50 episodes into.

1. thru 8.: G Gundam
9. Zeta
10. 08th MS TEAM

is this bait?

You need to watch the original first because most of the good series take place in UC. Just watch the movies if you don't want a 50 episode commitment.
>>
1. 0079
2. F91
3. 0080
4. Victory

The rest are shit.
>>
>>13754087
Why don't you just read the description of each and pick which ones sounds the best.

1. Mobile Suit Gundam
2. Turn A Gundam
3. Mobile Suit Gundam 00
4. Mobile Suit Gundam F91
5. Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
6. Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn
7. Gundam Build Fighters
8. Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket
9. Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans/Gundam G no Reconguista
10. Everything else
11. Aldnoah.Zero :')

>>13754162

No bait, with so many series I just want to pick and choose which one to spend a long period of time watching.

>>13754204

They all sound interesting and I seen a bias to the older gundams and so that is why I am asking a general rankings.
>>
Just watch every UC Gundam you fag. even G saviour
>>
Gundam AGE.
>>
>>13754291
Then just start with the first. If you like it then watch Zeta which takes places some years after and has a great deal of returning characters. ZZ takes places literally right after Zeta.


1. Mobile Suit Gundam
2. G Gundam
3. Zeta Gundam
4. 00
5. Build Fighters
6. Iron Blooded Orphans (so far)

Everything else is about the same for me.

How retarded do you have to be to watch a long series based on how much people say they like specific bits of it?

Turn A Gundam, Gundam The Origin (manga), SD Gundam Gaiden, SEED Stargazer, War in the Pocket, X, Thunderbolt (manga), G, Reconguista in G

If you don't have enough time that you need to pick specific series to "invest" in, you're trying to get into the wrong franchise.

OP here, the original just has terrible visuals and animation. I was thinking of watching something a little more bearable.

Watch the movies instead of the TV series. They are much higher quality on that front, even if the plot and characters suffer a bit.

Newfags need to stop repeating this bad meme. The first movie only has 20% new footage, the second only has 35% new footage, and the third is only 50% new footage. The rest is ripped directly from the tv series. You can even see the g-fighter in the background in several shots.

>Top 10 Gundam Series

Ten? That's kinda of a lot, I think. Most shows are barely passable and a lot of them follow the same tropes and arechtypes as the rest -- If you've seen one, you've seen them all. That is especially the case of the "serious" entries to the series like Zeta and 0079.

That said, I like the OVAs partially because they don't try to drag shit out to 50 episodes. I no particular order

>>13754717
>Kinda want to start watching GBF. Seems fun.
It is. Might take you a few eps to really get into it, I think I needed three, but it's an incredibly fun ride once you're hooked. If you somehow don't end up liking it, make sure to at least hang around until the end of Ep 6. The big fight between the Zaku Amazing and Build Strike Full Package is one of the highlights of the series - I used it to get a friend to watch the series.

>>
>>13755746
>stop living your life by other people's uninformed opinions and form some your own.

I've watched SEED and other Gundam shows. SEED is okay, but it falls for far too many of the same tropes and archetypes that we've seen in other Gundam shows and anime in general. The story telling just isn't original and would still be bad just because the characters are lame. They're cookie-cutter magnets for melodrama and their development is one-dimensional if they're developed at all.

Anyway that's just my opinion. If it happens to be the same as other peoples', it's not because I'm parroting them.
>>
>>13755790
>If it happens to be the same as other peoples', it's not because I'm parroting them.
You pretty much are though. Have an original opinion FFS and actually watch stuff instead of saying "Well I liked this but people say it's bad so to fit in I must say it's bad"
>>
>>13755795
>"Well I liked this but people say it's bad so to fit in I must say it's bad"

I didn't say that, though.

I thought I made it pretty clear that I came to my own conclusions about the show.
>>
>>13755795
>people aren't allowed to agree on things

This is why people think SEEDfags are retarded.
>>
>>13755795
Jesus Christ...

Stop baiting the SEED fags. If they haven't learned by now, they never will. It's best to just leave them alone.

Guess I will start with Turn A. Thanks /m/.

The Gundam franchise seems confusing, but it really isn't once you get into it. It's UC (the original stuff) and everything else. Watch the 0079 Movies first and foremost (they lay the ground work for every thing afterwards). If you like them, keep going in UC in production order, if not try one of the alternate universe ones with an interesting sounding plot, keep going until you find one you like. And by try, I don't mean look for reviews or ask /m/, I mean watch the first episode.
>>
>>13756060
Um, I don't recommend that. It was supposed to be the end cap for the entire Gundam franchise, so it's highly recommended that you watch some of the previous stuff first. You can watch it first technically, but you'll be missing out on some of the deeper stuff. Do the 0079 movies.

I guess you're not including unanimated series, but I would put Crossbone as my 2 if it ever gets animated. I'm not a huge fan of Zeon era UC. If Thunderbolt keeps being good I would consider adding it to a list.
>>
>>13754577
Watch it anyway. Animation aside, it's the best Gundam, and if you spend too much time watching anything more recent (or older, but still gorgeous, such as 0083) it's just going to make it that much harder to get into 0079.

Can't blame them, though.

Asking to name 10 Gundam shows is almost impossible without getting at least a few of the most polarizing entries.

Unicorn. You won't understand a single thing without at least the 0079 movies though. Try to get through the movies, then you can watch unicorn which is basically a seven-hour movie-quality ova. It looks and feels just like Thunderbolt, but minus the jazz. Still a phenomenal soundtrack though.
