What is it about Gundam that brings the worst out of this board?
Because zeta really is the best gundam and the height of tomino and shitters get butthurt because their shitty toonami AU is hated? Really all there is from UC is 0079 and zeta, everything else is hated too begin with from almost all of /m/ in some way. So I don't fucking get it. You only have 0079 or zeta. This zeta hate is so new that it's become just some new meme because people are bored.
zeta was worshiped by us for fucking ever.
>What is it about Gundam that brings the worst out of this board?
It's very simple. Fans love being the center of attention. Especially when it comes to anime series nobody has seen and they're the word of authority on the quality of it. The rest of the fandom has to believe them. So when things become widely available, and people start seeing how Zeta (insert any other gundam series) is not some kind of end-all of anime and express their opinions on the matter the old time guard can't take it. Their authority is being challenged and nobody likes it. So flame wars and shitposting erupt all over the place. It's a fight for dominance.
Its too bad zz ruined haman like all the zeta characters, At least it gave us more pics.
Is there such a thing as a bad image of Haman?
Because most gundam like seed and wing is widely know as hated and shit anyway in the gundam world? so you cant shitpost about it?
Zeta maybe really is the only decent gundam after 0079 and my opinion but it actually improved on it completely since the series is actually watchable while not just /m/ but bandai and japan thinks the 0079 movies are the only canon. but people love shitposting about something.
>Is there such a thing as a bad image of Haman?
Yes, the one you just posted. Damn her legs make her seem anorexic. Take any image of her from ZZ she's hot as hell and not a skeleton.
Wow she looks so sweet in that painting. I could almost see her being Judau's girlfriend.
It's funny because In ZZ there's a scene where Judau's basically scared shit of Haman because he's seen her aura (another Newtype power I suppose). It was pitch black almost like that of a demon.
You're wrong. I know because I'm him, and I do it because I realized how garbage DP series are, especially with how people overrate the Getter manga and treat it as if though it's anything special. Not that the OVAs and Toei anime aren't worse garbage, but they don't get their nutsacks licked nearly as frequently as the manga.
I'm under the impression that the getter shit poster is a mazinger fan who completely lost his shit for some reason, I think it was getter fans taking over what started as a mazinger thread.
Which lead to a bunch of shitposting and a rigged straw poll to go hurrdurr everyone hates getter fans after gundam overtook the first getter rigging.
I saw the poll as it was going.
Getter started abnormally high, then gundam overtook it, after which getter jumped up abnormally high in response.
In the poll thread it's self people called out the rigging.
You're a sad pathetic individual if you have to attack other fanbases because someone talked shit about your precious little show.
Pretty sure DPfags aren't the ones that force everyone to watch Gundam whenever they come here.
So you just can't accept that people like something that you don't? Getter wasn't even that popular on /m/ before you literally shitposted every thread until people stopped making them.
I'm not sure whether to be disgusted or amused by your overwhelming faggotry.
Because after a long while of many many people loving the shit out of Zeta, the shitposting asswipes of Neo /m/ decided they wanted to see someone bleed and they chose Zeta Gundam, although for a month or two they left ot alone to beat up on Turn A, and they also have to multi-task calling people "spics", overglorifying or attacking G Reco, and pushing the illusion that somehow Wing, Zeta, and Getter Robo fans are responsible for everything wrong with /m/
No it's even more pathetic than that.
He can't accept people not liking Zeta in Zeta threads. If Zeta is not the most liked show on /m/, he becomes insecure and sperg out at other threads that unanimously like the stuff they're discussing about.
He's that sad.

Zeta does have problems. Real problems as in retreading twice the same storyline for no reason at all. Four and Rosamia. That's like 10 episodes at the minimum of pure filler. Another problem is how antagonists just show up like fucking magic. Paptimus ? Care to explain to me how all of sudden a single man (who lives in the outer solar system) holds in his hands the balance between the earth federation and Zeon ? It's as if the writers just said, fuck it guys we need some crazy dude, the Titans are not enough let's get Paptimus. Nothing is known of him except he wants the same thing as Maria Pia Armonia. And of course all women basically give him their vaginas. Reccoa included who was there to kill him in the first place. You simply cannot make this shit up.
Transformable Gundams is another stupidity just to bank on the Macross craze. Wasn't Gundam is own thing ? Why ape Macross when you don't need to. Planes in space lol.
Oh yeah just like Paptimus was not enough, ding dong we've got ourselves a new player at the 89th minute. Haman Karn. Dumb writers, Titan/Zeon conflict not enough. Giovian vagina killer not enough, lets bring another splinter Zeon faction. The writers just didn't know what the fuck they were doing. Maybe the story wasn't rich enough and they needed more filler to get to the 50 episode limit ? In either case, Zeta is 20 episodes too long and a cast too big that does too many dumb shit to be taken seriously.
>Care to explain to me how all of sudden a single man (who lives in the outer solar system) holds in his hands the balance between the earth federation and Zeon
He's from Jupiter. Jupiter and its filthy Jupitergold is literally the cause of all bad things.
>He's from Jupiter. Jupiter and its filthy Jupitergold is literally the cause of all bad things.
No. We never hear from Jupiter in 0079, CCA, ZZ (except Judau basicaly goodbye to all and exiling himself in the outer solar system), Victory, Turn A Gundam, 0083, Ms 8th Team, Unicorn, 0080 War in the pocket. And somehow in Zeta they're the linchpin of the conflict between the Earth Federation and Zeon/Zeon Remenants ?
It ridiculous and without any basis. It's clear the writers simply didn't give a shit and invented something anything just to keep things interesting. But in doing this they completely derailed the story.
>Getter started abnormally high, then gundam overtook it, after which getter jumped up abnormally high in response.
>Getter started high because it was hated, thus it was a shit poll, but then Gundam overtook it so it was the best poll ever 100% legit, then I left and when I came back Getter overtook it so now it is a rigged poll by the spic
>In the poll thread it's self people called out the rigging.
You mean getterfags, right? I wouldn't trust them, since they made a boogeyman to act as a scapegoat for all their shitposting.
The more popular a series is, the more people want to tear it down because they personally do not enjoy it and because this is 4chan.
>So you just can't accept that people like something that you don't?
To be fair to him....how is that much iffferent from a lot of /m/en? All he does differently is has a specific shtick that makes him more readily identifiable.
>Reccoa included who was there to kill him in the first place. You simply cannot make this shit up.
Funny you use the phrase 'make this shit up' here, because she wasn't.
Reccoa was a spy. Not an assassin. She went in to get some info on the Jupitris and GTFO. Nowhere was it ever stated she was sent in to kill Scirocco.
This right here? This is part of WHY these arguments get so bad. Yes, there's legitimate criticisms to be had for Zeta, just as there are for most things. But in many cases here, said criticisms are built on either gross oversimplification, misreading of scenes, or just flat-out misinformation.
>Titan/Zeon conflict not enough
Case in point - for as vague as some areas of the politics are, the show does make distinctions that the AEUG aren't Zeon. In fact, several of them openly bristle at the idea of being on the same team as Zeon and regularly describe the Titans as "as bad as Zeon."
This isn't even buried information, either. That latter point is laid out pretty clearly in the first few episodes. Particularly around 3-10, when the comparing of the Titans to Zeon is more overt.
Again, there's legitimate issues, but it doesn't help your case when you can't even get your facts straight in discussing them.
Outside of Reccoa and Sara, how many women do we see lusting for Paptimus's Jovian knob?
There's maybe the one-ep wonder NT trainee, but she dies before we ever learn if she was a groupie or just there on orders.
Moaur openly turns him down in favor of staying with Jerid.
Haman sees through his bullshit and seems to be totally okay with the possibility of killing him down the line.
Other than that...not a lot of other women interacting with him.
Of the other two, we can't really say it's against Sara's character, since she first entered the show as a groupie.
Which just leaves Reccoa. Is Reccoa's shift a problem? Hell yeah, it is. It could work on paper, but the execution is very lacking thanks to how little is done to lead in to it.
But Reccoa's only one character. Far from what's being hyped here.
The legends of Scirocco's Nat-20 charisma are grossly exaggerated.
>I wouldn't trust them
No one's asking you to trust anybody. People are only asking you to stop shitposting in Getter threads. No one with a brain gives a shit about stupid polls.
Your precious Gundam show is getting attacked by other Gundamfags, not Getterfags. Solve the problem yourself, don't lash out against people on the other end of the spectrum because you couldn't handle criticism against your own.
If you want serious discussion about the merits of Getter, sure, but all you've done is throw out buzzwords like "it sucks" or "it's nothing special", without explaining anything more. Of course people will dismiss you as a spic. Why do people need to argue with you over Getter when you're not engaged in the discussion yourself, and just here to shitpost?
I haven't seen you discuss one single plot line from Getter, not one. At least when I see Zeta threads, people are bringing up several issues about the actual show. I've seen none of that from the opposing camp on Getter.
>caring about other peoples opinion
didn't realize I was posting on /mu/
this is a board for giant robots
>This zeta hate is so new
I've seen hate for Zeta 5 years ago.
>zeta was worshiped by us for fucking ever.
It was only worshipped because it had no subs before. When people actually got to watch it, they realized just how incredibly dumb the show was.
I couldn't even believe it myself. It was the show that was supposed to define Gundam forever, but all I got was a badly written drama with unintentional benny hill moments.
>It was the show that was supposed to define Gundam forever, but all I got was a badly written drama with unintentional benny hill moments.
That's what defined Gundam forvever after Zeta, sadly. A bad war drama made to sell toys.
Not really. Zeta introduced a lot of new thematic ideas. Comparatively Victory was just a retread. That's not to say that Zeta didn't borrow from the original series, because it did. But aside from some of the technological designs Victory felt somewhat by-the-numbers and uninteresting to me. I don't dislike it, though. I think it's pretty solid.
This thread answers the OP's question in the saddest way possible; Someone says something is bad/good as if it were fact, then people reply, trying to dissuade them with what they think are facts ("Great/Poorly written characters" "Good/Bad passing"). It's not even a conversation, it's two brick walls with nothing to say just talking to talk. I think these posts sum up /m/ pretty well:
It's hard to believe that these posters are over 18 years old.
