Do I need to watch any other Gundam before watching Gundam 08th MS Team?
>>
>>117473488
nope
>>
>>117473488
Not really. They just fight and have stupid romance.
>>
>>117473565
Oh you
>>
>>117473488
If you don't really care why everyone's in the trenches of the grittiest battle zone of an incredibly iconic war and why titular Gundams are suddenly grunt mechs, then no. 08th MS Team's plot is straightforward enough you don't really need side material. You are required to have read Romeo and Juliet, though.
>>
No, but I think you'd appreciate it more.
>>
>>117473488
probably most realistic gundam
>>
Isn't the whole timeline so messed up that you just have to know the basics?
>>
>>117475368
UC works pretty well.
>>
Whenever I see 08th MS Team mentioned people seem to always shit on it.
Here I thought it was pretty good besides that terrible forced romance. Best girl lost too.
>>
>>117475703
Well there was a definite tonal shift in the second half when the new director took over after the old one died.
>>
>>117475368

>>
>>117475368
The main events of UC are covered in the shows:
0079 > Zeta > ZZ > CCA

All the OVAs (including Unicorn) are essentially side stories that take place during/between those shows and don't affect the main plot no matter how contrived some of their circumstances can seem.
>>
>>117475703
It's good. The animation and movement is god and the enemy mobile armor rapes shit all over the place. It gives you fetish for moving machine parts.
>>
>>117475832
Agreed
The gundams have more weight to them in this

Aren't most of those shows the eyecancer ones from the 80s or so? I don't know if I can get over that.
>>
>>117475368
All one really needs to know is that the Sahalin family are some nobles looking to make their mark under the Zeonic banner. Gihren thinks Ginias' shenanigans are too expensive but he rolls with it anyway because of his space AIDS.

This scene cracked me up
>>
>>117473488
It was my first Gundam. I regret nothing.
>>
>>117475875
This scene was terrible. Aina said the exact same stupid speech but nobody laughed at her. In the first place, Shiro only committed treason because she was the finest piece of Zeek scum in Side 2.
>>
>>117475881
Mobile Suit Gundam itself can be a little hard to watch, but the rest are fine.
>>
>>117475703
If they had even one episode to flesh out their romance it wouldn't have felt like the worst case of puppy love in UC. Either that or label them under Newtype Attraction; that's how all the other Gundam protags justify their hormonally overcharged bad decisions. Neither of them were Newtypes, though.

Too bad they wasted the entire finale on Micott and Kika's NTR adventure starring a village of mentally handicapped children
>>
>>117475966
i laughed at her

Watch the first one at least. Or at least the compilation movies.
>>
>>117473488
0079

>>117476308
Why is the Gundam Mk II so fucking sexy?
>>
>>117476308
Well if the actual show looks at least half like that, I will give it a try.
But you can't deny that the first MSG looks like shit.
>>
>>117475881
Only 0079 is eye-cancer.
>>
>>117475039
You know, that was one thing I always wondered. Why are Gundams Grunt Mechs now?
>>
>>117476462
There are moments in the show that match the quality of the opening but they are like once per episode. There is a lot of QUALITY

Best animated Gundams are Char's Counterattack, 0083, and Unicorn
>>
>>117476508
Aren't they some older gundams? They look pretty tame compared to Unicorn.
>>
>>117476462
0079 looks great compared to things like Zambot and toei Getter Robo
>>
>>117476787
>Toei
No surprise man.
>>
>>117476508
I didn't finish all of 079, but I assume by the end the Gundam is securely in the Federations hand and they have enough time to put it into mass production.
>>
>>117476508
General/real life reason is because they're popular. Much like Dragons in card games.

The in universe reason is because lots of spare parts so they decided to let grunts have fun with them.
>>
>>117476873
So not every gundam is magical pussy-obliterating robot? Some of them look kinda weak if you compare them to the blue NotZaku, Kshatrya, that crab walker from unicorn or NeoZeong.
>>
>>117476840
It was destroyed at the end, we don't know if the federation recovered the parts and data

In the show they're assembled from slightly altered spare parts from the development of the gundam. Because of this there aren't actually spare parts available to repair damaged units, and you get things like the Ez-8 from them being repaired with parts for the mass produced GMs.

Outside the show, they wanted to do a Gundam OVA about grunts, but you can't have a new Gundam OVA without a new Gundam design in it.
>>
>>117476263
What are the compilation movies I should watch before 08th MS team called?
>>
>>117477009

Not really. Most Gundam types do have exceptional performance though so the tools to be a magical pussy-obliterating thing is there. It's just not complete auto pilot.
>>
>>117473488
Not really, although having context for the One Year War might be helpful.
>>
>>117477156
Mobile Suit Gundam I through III
>>
>>117477069
Yeah but that anon is basically right since they already had GMs on the battlefield by that point. Even if that's not the reason for the Gundam ground type being used by grunts.
