Should I watch Unicorn before watching The Origin?
>>
You could if you really wanted to. It's more important that you watch 0079 before both of them
>>
>>133789292
They're not related at all. Difference is Unicorn is finished and Origin will only be finished in a year or so.
>>
>>133789292
I could redirect you to /m/ but they'll kick up a storm
Origin is Char's backstory.
Unicorn is the latest entry to early UC.
It is important to watch at least the rest of early UC series to get an understanding
>>
>>133789292
doesnt really matter
>>133789409
never even heard of that
>>
>>133789565
It's the original series that pretty much the entire franchise is based on in some way.
>>
>>133789292
Origin will only adapt Char's story.
Unicorn could be watched as a standalone entry but you'll have to watch at least 0079 to get why Zeon and the Earth federation are fighting

is that the one this hilarious webm came from ?
>>
I probably should have mentioned I've seen all of early UC except Unicorn.

I didn't know Origin was just Char's backstory.
>>
>>133789735
No. That's from F91. Its 123 UC.
>>
>>133789292
Doesn't matter. The most important thing you need to watch before Unicorn is either watch the Trilogy movies of the 0079 series or the original TV episodes. Watching Z (the TV series), ZZ and CCA before Unicorn is also recommended as those shows tie into Unicorn a lot but not as required as the original.

Personally I would go with the trilogy films since that's pretty much the canon ones.
>>
>>133789292
You should watch Unicorn after watching 0079, Zeta, ZZ and CCA
>>
>>133789791
The Origin is a manga, a slightly different telling of 0079 that expands on various characters and events of 0079 and providing more detailed explanations of events.
The OVA will adapt some of the manga, Char's backstory. .
>>
>>133789851
Imagine they remake all thoses series to look like unicorn tier muh dick etc
>>
>>133789791

Yeah you're good to watch both then. Do Unicorn to wrap up that end, then Origin to see Char's backstory.

Only 2 of 4 OVA's out currently (3rd in spring, 4th in fall next year).
>>
>>133789893
I see, does it explain why Amruo gets keked by a fatty?
>>
>>133789292
You can watch them in either order as they're not really related. But if you're going to watch Unicorn make sure you've watched 0079, Zeta, ZZ, and CCA. Anyone who says you can watch it blind is completely wrong. Also even though Origin is a prequel it assumes you've watched 0079 so make sure you've watched that.
>>
>>133789930
Good thing Unicorn has nice visuals, otherwise it would be utterly unwatchable.
>>
>>133789970
I'm so sick of this meme. All of Unicorns flaws are present in almost all Gundam series after 0079. It makes no sense when people suck Zeta's dick when they talk shit about Unicorn.
>>
>>133789936
Amuro and Fraw started becoming distant with each other over the course of the series, and then Lalah's death really fucks him up emotionally.
>>
HELP ME GUYS

I DON'T WANT TO WATCH ZZ BUT MY AUTISM WON'T ALLOW ME TO SKIP IT
>>
>>133790163
DON'T FORGET TO WATCH CHAR'S COUNTER ATTACK AFTERWARDS
>>
>>133790163
Just fucking watch it. If you can suffer through it, you'll start enjoying all other anime more.
>>
>>133790163
It got good for me around episode 20 something, or maybe it as 30 something, fuck I don't know.
>>
>>133790163
Anime ja nai, anon.
Anime ja nai
>>
>>133790163
it gets better. just go in with a very open mind.
as for Chars, liberal use of the fast forward feature for the Ques segments will help you.

I hate ZZ being the series

where Haman dies
>>
>>133790163
It's not that bad. If you ddon't like the comedy stuff just wait it out until the second half.

>>133790221
When I watched the first episode for the first time I was really confused. I'd heard it was a comedy and made for kids so I thought the whole series would be like that.
>>
>>133790250
Quess wasn't that bad.
Not compared to Beecha or Mondo or Judau or Glemy or Elle or Mashmyre or Chara or Roux.
>>
>>133789797
well thanks anon, i could use the laugh
>>
>>133790346
F91 was planned to be a series but Sunrise cramped it in a movie so dont except quality pacing.
It focuses on the Jovian Colonies and the events of 0079 are quite in the past hence Late UC.

Core U.C. Order
0079
Zeta
ZZ
CCA
Unicorn

U.C. Chronological Order
0079
08th MS Team
IGLOO: Hidden One Year War
IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079
IGLOO 2
0080: War in the Pocket
0083: Stardust Memory
Zeta
ZZ
Char's Counter Attack
Unicorn
F91
Victory Gundam
Reconguista in G
Turn A Gundam

I'd recommend the following order, fucking production order:
0079 (The Trilogy is a good substitue if you don't have time for the TV series)
0083
Zeta
ZZ (Feel free to seek through boring parts of episodes. Lot's of pointless shit in this series, but also important stuff so can't complete skip it)
CCA
Unicorn.

The Origin and newly announced Thunderbolt would best be watched after having at least seen the core five U.C. pieces as one is a prequel highly tied to knowing the events of the series and Thunderbolt will have plenty of OYW references.

Brought to you by a casual Gundam fan who started the series about two years ago and only likes Universal Century besides GBF (Try a shit) and IBO (so far)
>>
>>133790517
Switch Turn A and Reco.
Tomino confirmed it.
>>
>>133790549
How does that even work? Wouldn't that imply that the earth got fucked up again after the events of Turn A? That's pretty depressing.
>>
>>133790862
The same could be said for every series before CC.
The conflict is resolved but at some point in the future all is fucked up again.
>>
>>133790862
>That's pretty depressing.
Well it is Tomino.
>>
>>133790902
Yeah but it's pretty sad after how they said they wouldn't repeat the mistakes of the dark history it happens again.
>>
>>133790862
>the earth got fucked up
That's the entire point of Turn A's Black History reveal. Humanity is in a cycle of destroying and rebuilding themselves.
>>
>>133790946
Yeah but like I said here >>133790935 Turn A was supposed to be the end of that as the information was disclosed and they could learn from their mistakes.

>>
>>133790013
Unicorn and Zeta would have been perfect if not for Riddhe and Katz respectively. Seems like every Gundam needs to have some cancerous fuck who makes things needlessly complicated.
>>
>>133790935
>We must's repeat what happened with the OYW
>Well fuck, fucking Titans. Better make sure that shit don't happen again.
>Well fuck, fucking Neo-Zeons.Better make sure that shit don't happen again.
>Well fuck, fucking Neo-Zeons again. Better make sure that Amuro miracle thingy is serves a good enough reminder to not fuck shit up again.
etc etc

>>133790971
Yes. But all it takes is one fuck up and that's it. Start from scratch again. Again, that's the POINT. It's cyclical. See the above about 'not repeating the same mistakes'. That is the ENTIRE point. Not everyone learns.

It's meant to be bitter sweet. Humanity is resilient enough to get back on their feet and an aspect is able to learn from past follies. But at the same time, all it takes is another group of ignorant retards to screw everything to hell. Which is once again driven home with G-Reco.
>>
>>133790971
One factor for the destruction that was followed by the transition to RC was economical collapse as well as the depletion of natural resources. Something mankind cannot completely control
>>
>>133790971
>they could learn from their mistakes
That's what they all say every time. Humanity isn't a hivemind. You can't get all of us to collectively agree on not committing the same mistakes.

instrumentality is the true path

How to watch UC Gundam:
- 0079 FIRST and always first

Then you have the option of watching 08th MS Team, 0080 or Origin.
OR you watch Zeta for a pure sequel

After Zeta there's ZZ, which really should be watched for the closure of various threads from Zeta. It's a mixed experience, ranging from weird and wacky to great to terrible; on the plus side it has some of the best characters in the series.

After Z and ZZ you can watch 0083 (technically it's a prequel but it makes more sense after you've seen them, since it has a lot of references to things from both series). It's not a literary masterpiece and it suffers from the director and writer both trying to push it in different directions, but it's still pretty fun.

Then you have CCA
You can watch Unicorn after this if you want to, but I'd suggest skipping straight ahead to F91 since it sits with CCA as a similarly styled movie.

After F91 you then have Crossbone (manga), then Victory, then Turn A and lastly G-Reco.

TLDR, only watch Origin after seeing 0079; Unicorn should only be seen after watching at least 0079, Zeta and CCA.

>>133790862
How is that any less depressing than what happens in early UC? The story of Gundam is pretty much that war is pointless and achieves nothing.

G-Reco had the interesting backstory about how war was taboo and everything, but people were losing interest in the enforcement of that taboo and were straining at the leash for war without really knowing what suffering there would be when it happened. Kind of like WW1 in a way, or any other period where there's been prolonged peace and people start thinking about adventurism.

It litterally takes two seconds to figure out origin's relation to unicorn.

They are memes for /m/orons

>>133790862
>Wouldn't that imply that the earth got fucked up again after the events of Turn A?
Yes.
>>
>>133790013
I hate Unicorn as much as I hate Zeta.

The original 1979 series is the only one worth watching.
>>
>>133790163
Just watch the final episode

Judau vs Haman is the only good thing about ZZ

First 10 episodes are unfunny shits that is painful to watch
>>
>>133792073
>people hating something for being popular
>people loving something that is hated
Only people I'd believe would do that are people with no knowledge of the popular/hated things.
>>
>>133792508
>Judau vs Haman is the only good thing about ZZ
The only good thing about ZZ are Haman's sexiness, the desert arc and Ples. Judau Vs Haman is extremely underwelming.
>>
>>133790275
Based Judau.

This is a terrible idea, don't listen to this idiot. Watching 0083 before Zeta completely ruins the ending of 0083.
