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

Victory is better than War in the Pocket IMO. Perfect blend of (almost) believable character and plot with good old robot fights.
>>
0080 is shit.
>>
>>13811104
kill yourself

Honestly, 0080 would've been better if both Chris and Bernie died in the end.
>>
Honestly, I don't get what so special about War in the Pocket. I mean it's pretty good, but early UC is just way better imo.
>>
You have a short attention span
>>
>>13811220
It is early UC.
>>
>>13811287
I meant the TV series, sorry.
>>
>>13811253
Are you fucking retarded? 0080 is always the first Gundam ADHDs roll their eyes at.
>>
>>13811253
OP said he watched everything up to 0080, though.
>>
>>13810898
Plot and characters were both atrocious and the mecha fights were 95% "Uso throws his legs at the bad guy."
>>
>>13812153
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.

>>13810493
because this is the 1st Gundam Tomino had nothing to do with

definitely would have truly fucked Al

>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.
>>
>>13812183
How did Bernie make a terrible decision?
>>
>>13811104
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.
>>
Probably the only Gundam that effectively sold an anti-war narrative
>>
>>13812183
>I do not possess the capacity to follow a straight forward plot.
>>
>>13812255
I fantasize that Al kills himself as a teenager, the guilt finally too much for him.
>>
>>13812153
To say 95% of the fights consisted of that means you either dropped it early or are guiding your opinion on the series by gifs and opinions you've seen here on /m/
>>
>Bernie dies
>Snake, what happened?! Snake?! SNAKE? SSSNNNAAAAKKKKEEEE!!!
>>
>>13810898
You are full of shit. Theres no way you can say that given that victory gundam subtitles are crabstick tier
>>
>>13812534
Bernie... had a hard life.
>>
>>13812426
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.

>>13812361
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.

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.

If you only follow the story by the mecha fights, sure.

I fucking hate neo /m/

Teatime with Chris!
