I've been watching Gundam in order, and I just finished this a little bit ago. How the fuck is it possible that I cared more about these characters in just six episodes than I cared about any of the other characters besides Char and Amuro over close to a hundred episodes and a movie? This is a mile better than anything released in the franchise so far from what I've seen.
It's okay anon, i bet we'll have a new war soon
>This is a mile better than anything released in the franchise so far from what I've seen.
Victory is better than War in the Pocket IMO. Perfect blend of (almost) believable character and plot with good old robot fights.
Agreed. It's beyond me why /m/ has such a raging hard on for that piece of shit, easily one of the worst Gundam series.
0800 is fine, I guess. Nothing really special about it. Literally nothing happens until the end and the "climax" is some brat making a terrible decision not only pretty much killing himself but potentially getting the entire colony destroyed. It's not a terrible OVA or anything but it's pretty bad and certainly not comparable to early Tomino UC.
>definitely would have truly fucked Al
You know what? Al should've gone full-Kira. There should be a show where Alfred Izuruha shows up and goes "MUH UNDERSTANDING" before wasting some Feddies and Zeeks. If anyone would actually have a reason to be the third party, it'd be Al.
But seriously, I would like a UC entry where characters like Al show up as secondary actors.
You just keep proving how shit you are over and over yet somehow manage to surprise me.
And this is coming from someone who thinks that /m/ circle jerks 0080 a bit hard but it is far from shit and still one of the better entries into the franchise as a whole.
Nice job trying to call me bluff because you're too dumb to understand what an exaggeration is.
Uso throwing his legs is an incredibly overused gimmick in a hackneyed attempt to prove to the audience what a resourceful fighter he is, as they are utterly incapable of showing anything else interesting happening without going over animation budget, or hiring better storyboarders I guess. Same thing with Zeta with the "Shoot, dodge, switch to screaming inside pilot shot" that works well when you have nothing else to show.
To speak of /m/ opinions, though, there's a reason no one mentions Victory (and not really Zeta, aside from the last one) when people bring up favorite fights in Gundam/Mecha history. It's because they're awful.
Tomino shows always have a way of telling a straight forward plot so badly that if you're actually paying attention to what each character is saying you end up confused. There's a suprising disconnect between how characters act, how they should be acting in any given situation, and how much of that is supposed to be the point and how much of that is just the plot being all over the place.
But yeah. Earth is great, Space people not all bad.
>Literally nothing happens until the end and the "climax" is some brat making a terrible decision
You could describe the first Godfather movie the same way and you'd be just as dumb.
The characters are far more relatable and realistic.
It's completely devoid of newtype bullshit or melodrama stemming from implausible family relations.
Also, the animation is some of the best in the entire franchise.

It's really just a vocal minority. Kinda like the SEEDfags or people that like G-Reco.
Teatime with Chris!
