Why haven't you watched Gundam yet, /a/?
>>
It has QUALITY.
Just take a look at that hand.
Bright's hand has seams.
>>
Just finished Zeta last night, going to ZZ now
>>
I watched the first one but then stopped since Zeta was so terrible. No real interest in watching the rest
>>
>>124472513
I don't watch mechashit.
>>
>>124472751
Why didn't you like Zeta?
>>
I watched everything up through Victory and then took a break. That was more than a year ago, I should really get back to it. But 90's Gundams are just so weird.
>>
>>124472513
But I have watched every early UC's show except ZZ, anon. 0080 is still the best of the bunch.
>>
Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 was really good but I could never make it further into the UC.

Many of the other continuities are enjoyable though.
>>
>>124472583
I feel sorry for you, ZZ is shit.

That's a weird way of saying "the best UC Gundam"

Yeah, except the majority of /m/ fucking HATES ttgl and its fanbase, you have zero right to speak for the board if you can't hold true to its standards.
Also /m/'s collective taste is a mixture of good and evil, for fucks sake it has a cross ange defence force.
>>
>>124472513
But I did, took the effort to watch 0078 movies, Star Dust Memories, War in the Pocket, 8th MS Squad, Zeta, ZZ and Char's counter attack.

I originally watched G Gundam to Gundam 00 before going back to UC. Now I have to go decide whether to watch Victory Gundam or not.

Almost halfway through Zeta. On hold. 0079 was much more engaging.

>>124478287
You really don't know what you're talking about.
I'll take it you've never browsed there for more than a few hours a day. Although /m/ isn't typically as elitist as /a/ is when it comes to anime, this can't be entirely seen as a good or a bad thing. It has plenty of threads dedicated for shit mecha shows, especially when they're airing. The preference for mecha discussion for gundam over other older mecha shows is another example of how /m/ preffers one type of discussion over the other. I can't even remember the last time I saw a sdmf, dancouga, sun dougram, giam, or daimos thread. Their preference is entirely circled around Gundam, macross, votoms, getter robo, or general go nagai. Which implies the "good" of what I was talking about, or the Cross ange, captian earth, Ore Twintail, Pacific rim, or xenoblade generals that flood the board with garbage. Being the Evil.

Watching Victory Gundam. After ZZ, it shouldn't be too hard to watch any Gundam series besides maybe SEED/Destiny. Even G-Saviour was good fun.

>>124478329
If he didn't have such an enduring grudge against Kamille, he'd probably learn not to fight against the Argama regardless of the odds. That his companions keep getting killed by Kamille and co. doesn't help that grudge.
>>
>>124478329
I felt bad for him because he just lost every single time and never accomplished anything. It was just brutal by the time Kamille threw him off the cliff.

I want to but not enough to start at the original and don't know where to start otherwise.

Not that anon as I still enjoyed Wing, but it reuses a fuck load of animation

Don't go into it expecting gurren lagann, but the show is extremely comfy, everything after the UC timeline looks retarded though so I stayed away from those.
>>
>>124481055
When I think of reused animation, Gundam SEED comes to mind.
I don't recall Wing being as blatant as SEED in that regard, but I could be wrong because its been awhile since I've seen it.

Pretty much all of heavy arm's fighting scenes are composed of like 60% re-used animations, especially the one where he uses the knife.

At least watch the First Gundam Movie Trilogy. No other series/ova/movie gives a better summary of what Gundam's about, and at a quarter of the time investment.

Really, there's no excuse not to watch it early on, or as your first Gundam.

Currently watching G Gundam and having a lot of fun with it.

Even way back when I could tell it was the same damn animation.

I guess they figured they could get away with it since Heavyarms mostly shoots things.

I never understood why do people keep suggesting this. The movies themselves are just recaps (duh), and if you haven't seen the TV series before the movies, they're going to look awful with you with the weird pacing and jumping through events and they're probably just going to put you off Gundam altogether. In the movies it feels like they got from Side 7 to Earth in literally a single day, for example.

If you can't be bothered with the 40-something episodes of the TV series, might as well not bother.

I though it was mainly Aldnoah they hated for it's blatant attempts to bait in people that normally wouldn't watch a mecha series by making sure to staff up on and cast everybody that's been popular within the last few years or so rather than you know.....just make a show that's actually functionally good and has a clear direction and cast with motives and development as well as get people that actually know what they are doing and have experience in the genre instead of a guy who's prior directing credits are things like Girls Bravo, Ga-Rei Zero and some Type/Moon shit and a writer whose most well known work to date is Boku no Pico.

The fact that show turned out like it did is little surprise to anyone who has actually seen more than just Code Geass, Valvrave, Guilty Crown, Gurren Lagann and maybe Macross Frontier or Gundam 00 before which is maybe less than 5% of the audience that actually stuck around to the end.
>>
Any Mecha we should look out for in the rest of 2015? We just got off the Cross Ange ride which I love but a lot of /a/ and /m/ hate it. Well those Code Geass movies are something and G-Reco just ended which a lot of people hate too but I'm going through the franchise right now to find out why.

Why is Mecha so fun? Also will we ever get a new season of Kenzen Robo Daimidaler? I fucking loved it.

>Hahaha I put the most recent one dead last, I'm being original and not trying to shitpost guys

G-Reco will get it's real chance when the next series airs and everybody is too busy trying to find ways to shit all over it and reject it on day one to remember that that was the main reason that G-Reco is "irredeemable shit as well"
