Why haven't you watched Gundam yet, /a/?
There are lots series about it, the mechas aren't real enough for my taste besides looking ridiculously awful.
And that's about it.
Oh, I'll sacrifice my soul just to pilot Wing zero.
the taste of
>A hero is you and Domon gets the girl
>Kou gets NTR'd
I GOT DA BAHNIN' LOVE
But I have.
After all, my husbando is a Gundam character.
because unlike /m/ this board's collective taste is complete shit.
>because unlike /m/ this board's collective taste is complete shit.
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.
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.
But I watched every episode of Gundam released, OP.
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.
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.
Watch Gundam anime in this order.
You little shit.
Just because you dislike Wing or 00 doesn't make my post bait.
If >>124479724 has never seen a Gundam show in his life, then my recommendations are perfect for easing someone into the Gundamverse.
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.
>Anywhere as good as the original Gundam
It's silly garbage compared to 0079. It feels like I'm the only one who dislikes Gurren Lagann on /a/.
Recently finished G-Reco. Currently halfway through Turn A. These two really blend well together.
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.
OFFICIAL UC GUNDAM POWERRANKINGS
3. Turn A
12. 8th MS Team (first half)
102. 8th MS Team (second half)
>At least watch the First Gundam Movie Trilogy.
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.
No, he's right. Mecha is a trash genre for manchildren.
Pic related is an average mecha/tokusatsu fan.
In all fairness a lot of 79 has problems as well, I stilll don't know why the fuck Amuro gave 2 shits about Lalah, a girl he spent maybe 20 words with. I guess I just don't just MUH NEW TYPE! connections
I'm halfway through and it's better than zeta so far
ZZ has the blessing of only having plant kamille in it for a little bit, instead of having that bumbling fucking retard bouncing around doing stupid shit and being a broken man for forty nine episodes
no, he's a fuckhole who killed best girl
And now for AU Gundams:
4. Endless Waltz
10. AGE (2nd gen)
11. AGE (1st gen)
13. SEED Destiny (Shinn protag)
100. 00 (s2)
102. SEED Destiny (Kira protag)
9001. 00 (s1)
9002. AGE (3rd gen)
Fuck, I forgot about the 00 aliens movie, but that's probably for the best, I'd need to put it under yet another powergap.
zeta had a shit MC and a bunch of characters that fucked off for no reason and only showed up again to remind you that they existed but had nothing important to do
that's just two of my issues, I don't hate zeta but it's FAR worse than 0079
I've watched every single Gundam animated thing and read every single Gundam translated manga. It's my favorite franchise, it's a shame that people have to shit on it all the time as opposed to just actually watching it like they would your average flavor of the season fanservice show.
Yeah it is good but good luck getting /a to ever actually watch let alone admit it cause hurr that shits for /m. Can't be caught watching mecha anime because I'm supposed to dislike that shit because reasons.
Jokes on you, I managed to marathon it all, in production order, in less than two months.
I started watching Cross Ange before I started watching Gundam.
Can it change the fact the content was dumb shit for faggots?
Because Wing was perfect.
Fuck polished turds. Go watch KyoAni if you like that junk.
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"
