You'd better just ignore retards like that. They'll just keep repeating that you're a pleb and ignoring your opinion. Even if you say you watched the anime they'll still call you a pleb because you fail to appreciate it properly.

I have and I regret it. Watch the movies instead of the series. If you watch the series you will waste to much time watching a half bad/good show
>>
>>122291760
But I did, I finished it maybe a week ago.

Not that good, too much magic space autism and too little actual story. You can't really tell where one event ends and the next one begins, or how important each one is. The final assault
didn't really have the weight to it you'd expect of the battle that'd turn the tide of the war.

The OP alone for Zeta looks much better, so I'll probably start watching that soon.

People seem to forget that 0079 invented the entire Real Robot subgenre of mecha.

That's an achievement in itself, the fact that Early UC is far and away the best realized fictional universe in any mecha series is also something no other series can match.

>Someone in the world actually thinks AZ is better than 0079

I pray for their souls.
>>
>>122293022
That's kind of the point. A show can't simply be good to have the same kind of influence and following that Gundam does. The fact that it has those two aforementioned qualities is what makes it so important, regardless of whether 0079 holds up as an amazing real robot series by modern standards.

It's like saying the Me262 would be a terrible jet by modern standards, while true; jet aircraft might not exist today if it didn't exist to introduce the concept to be iterated upon.
>>
>>122293193
I dropped K-On because it's fucking garbage, but I don't understand your point. Gundam is only made to sell plastic model kits for children, isn't that common knowledge?
>>122293196
>You're ignorant if you don't cum yourself at the mere mention of Tomino's name
You're ignorant for failing to take a step back and look at how shitty 0079 actually is.

>>122293166
There are more anime with better story and concept than Gundam.

Miyazaki's Future Boy Conan, is't all about war is bad wat is bad, and which Tomino actually work 2 or 3 eps.

Space Battleship Yamato, it's the same hurr durr understanding, and it's more important then Gundam, it creat the first geneartion otaku

Seriously, /m/ doesn't know anything about earyly anime aside giant robot and Tomino.

One look at the best selling series ever would tell you that Sunrise historically probably cared about selling more than just gunpla with their flagship series.

They also don't count OVAs, otherwise Unicorn would be on here as well.

Doesn't really apply to the newer series though because AGE was pretty bad and G-reco is garbage.


Like if you compare it to some toei shows like Precure or Sentai, those BDs/DVDs actually do sell like shit (always <2000 except for Smile Precure) which shows that they rely on the merchandise sales more than anything.

You say that like it's wrong for studios to work for profit.

The existence of Plamo has little influence on and will never compromise the plot of an MSG series. The most it does is maybe the main suit has a couple of attachments or a transformation gimmick.

A stronger legacy of toy commercial, sure

It's like japanese Transformers, sponder by a toy company to milk manchildren. those gaijin keep saying Transformers the movie is so good, you know why? it's never about story, it's becasue they kill characters. killing character make some pleb think they are watching some serious stuff, same as Gundam and Tomino fantard.

/a/ is pleb as fuck in general but it shows especially with genres like mechs where a lot of the big titles can out in the 80s. For older anons they were likely exposed via SR anime or UC Gundam. For the majority it was probably via the AU gundams on toonami or Eva. Now we are passing that age and people are introduced with garbage like Code geass or AZ.

Hayato may be a boring character but at least he seems to be a good person, based on the little we see of him in the original (I haven't watched Zeta yet either)

I liked how they at least foreshadowed their relationship with a couple scenes near the end of the series. It was spoiled for me beforehand so I was just expecting them to arbitrarily get together out of nowhere.

I just love how Gundam shows the good and bad from both sides of the war.
In the new Origins series we see Hamon help out Char and Sayla as kids, and in 0079 we see her try and gun down a feddie ship which has war orphans on it.

There doesn't need to be so much shitflinging when talking about it.

These newfags don't even know the first anime was a mecha. Without mecha there wouldn't be /a/ or 4chan

The original Gundam was above average at best, it had a good storyline though it did slouch a lot in a few places, decent OST but the animation was horrid and that's where it let it down but I'm going to have to pull a Kanye and tell you the superior anime masterpiece which came out in the same year, pic related.

Are you talking about /a/ or /m/? Either way, /m/ actually hates AZ more than /a/. Or rather, there's way lesser AZ fans on /m/ than /a/. The irony is though /m/'s AZ threads are strangely better than /a/'s because there's lesser shitflinging from Slainefags.

It's not like RoV was an amazingly well animated show either, even for its time.
The reason it looks good is because of Dezaki's direction, and even then he only directed a little over half of the episodes, and it's likely one of his weakest shows visually.
Anyways, there's no reason to bring up RoV in this shitposting thread.

I have. It's spawned my favorite anime franchise, but it's the movie trilogy that holds up best nowadays. People seem to have a raging hate-on for it these days though.

I'm sorry anon, while what you said is true about 4-5 years ago, now, /a/ is the containment board.

I finished 0079 recently, I still don't understand why they were fighting the war in the first place.
so were zeon just trying to forceful take over all the space colonies? cause I don't think the federation were threatening their independence.

Unicorn would be on top eclipsing everything else if OVA's were counted. TV series generally pale in comparison to OVA's and Movies anyway. Unless I'm mistaken it's pretty much the best selling anime anthology ever. Pretty much every volume sold around 200,000 units.
>>
>>122293845

/a has this retarded attitude that mecha can be for /m only and has no place on this board ever unless it's shit like Aldnoah.Zero and Code Geass which is apparently perfectly okay for some reason.

Gundam F91 may be really flawed and clearly meant to be a longer 50 episode series as was originally planned but good god if it doesn't hold up as probably the best animated Gundam work ever. The level of detail to everything, how crisp and smooth it looks and moves is remarkable considering it's now almost 25 year old hand drawn cell animation.

It's a good arrangement. Take for instance, AZ.

AZ threads on /a/:
>Bitching about Inaho's eye
>Bitching about Assshime
>general shit flinging between Inaho fags and Slaine fags
>That one Slainefag insisting that Slaine is a better MC than show X
> muh Crutheo

AZ threads on /m/:
>Bitching about Inaho's eye
>Bitching about Assshime
>posts after posts talking about how the Knights should have been using their mecha to improve their society rather than invade earth
>>
>>122298137

The thing with AZ is that speaking as a long time fan of mecha anime that has seen literally dozens of titles I'm pretty sure AZ is actually made for people that don't normally like mecha anime and got into anime within the last 5 years or so judging by who seems to like it most, who doesn't, and the kinds of reactions they have over it.

I've never really actively watched a Gundam series though I came close to it in the toonami days with G Gundam. I started Turn A Gundam, its pretty cool! thanx 4 the recs /a/ :^)

>general shit flinging between Inaho fags and Slaine fags

I don't understand why this one gets so much attention from people. Like it's really bitter arguing too and it's not like either of them are these great pillars of intrigue or anything. Slaine has been the more interesting and developed character by far but even his arc kind of doesn't make a whole lot of sense from season to season. It's like there's not enough of the usual shipping crap for people to bicker over so they just default to arguing about the co-leads.

Also the princess has to be one of the dullest ones I've seen in a mecha anime since Marina Ismail in Gundam 00, but at least that show had other female characters to come in and shore up the slack like Sumeragi and Soma. They seemed like they were kind of trying to have Rayet fill some sort of counterpoint role to Asseylum but pretty much just gave up within a couple of episodes and Rayet has barely been a factor since.

Asseylum much like Marina is essentially a walking plot device that pretty much does nothing beyond looking pretty, acting as battery and bargaining chip for the Earth side for most of the first season and then spends most of the second season floating in a jar only to wake up and try to act as a tether to Slaine. Her role is pretty much defined almost entirely by her desire for peace and how she is used by the two male leads. We know absolutely nothing else about her, her interests or if she even has others sides to her personality other than the Perfect Peace Princess thing.

I don't know though, the show raises and drops or resolves plot points quicker than Code Geass did at times, it's hard to get attached to much of anything or anyone within that show.

>>122291760
I have. It's a 4/10, and so is Zeta. I'm going to watch the next one in the chronology sooner or later, but I'm interested in watching Turn A.

There is something so weird about how Tomino writes characters. They both feel realistic but then at times just an inconsistent blob of emotions. It doesn't help it's in a war environment and you have all these terribly cliched things.

>tfw Turn A and 08th MS Team are the only reasons I started watching Gundam
>have to watch 4 shitty series and movies to do so
>>
>>122303203
You don't need to watch anything before Turn A or 08th MS Team
You'll miss a few references but really nothing super important to the plot of the actual show
08th MS Team is the worst UC OVA anyways

Really? You just made my day. I've already suffered through 0079 and Zeta so I might as well finish UC.

The irony is that some of you unironically make these statements not knowing you're cancer that even cancer would reject.

If you're "suffering" through it just to watch Turn A you really don't have to. Personally I love the early UC series but I'm not gonna force anyone to watch em if they don't like them.

It's not, and I say that as someone who primarily posts on /m/.

Oh yeah, /a/ has shitposting issues too, but guess what? Threads go so fast on this board that the thread will probably die soon anyway.

A thread on /m/ can last for over a month. That shitposting just stays and can fester.

Plus, no one on /a/ ever destroyed discussion on the level that Clawshrimpy did for GGG.

I only really go to /m/ to discuss toku anyway. It's a shame that a lot of the people that like the Garo anime here haven't seen the frest of the franchise.
>>
Should I watch the movies or the TV series?
>>
>>122304114
movies
>>
>>122303871
I'll get to it after the anime finishes, stop bullying. I never was into toku before.
>>
>>122304114
Honestly, for 0079, just watch the movies. The story is a lot better in a compressed format. Watch the TV series for Zeta because the movies have a non-canon ending
>>
>>122303826

/m/ has no reason to exist anymore. Delete it, bring all mecha discussion to /a/ and leave toku for /tv/.
>>
>>122303871

Eh, speaking as someone that's seen all of the shows, Carved Seal of Flames is one of the best ones anyway.

The original Garo is a classic but the effects are kinda dates, especially his suit. Probably the best story of them though, even if it's a simplistic story.

Makai Senki's story is dumb, but at least it continued the story of the characters and didn't feel unneeded.

YamiTera's only good quality was the setting. Bad characters, overuse of CGI, dumb story.

Flower of Makai was pointless. I mean genuinely unneeded. Not to mention Raiga is nowhere near as good of a character as his father. Kouga's stoicness made him seem aloof, he was like Protoman in classic MM. Raiga's stoicness just makes him boring.
>>
>>122304114
Movies for 0079 AND ZETA. Seriously, don't waste your time with the tv series
>>
>>122304114
Fuck what those other two said, watch the TV series. The movies are fine if you want a refresher but they skip a bunch.

Why the fuck would you get into a franchise full of 40+ episode series if you take the lazy way out?
>>
What did Sayla see in Amuro?

I always felt she was wasted on that doofus
>>
>>122304361
Zeta movies aren't even canon you fucking moron
>>
>>122304187

Just don't watch any subs by TV-Nihon. They are infamous for just how bad they are, one of the big reasons a lot of subbers stopped using TL Notes and constant honorifics is because of their blatant overuse of them.

That scene of Celestial Being The Movie in the 00 movie that gg did the joke subbing for? That's what they do unironically.

>>122304361
>>122304206

I'll agree that for 0079, the movies are fine because honestly it compresses the story really well.

The Zeta movies change too much and the new animation clashes horribly with the old animation.
