In anticipation for the next season, 2202, I thought it'd be a good idea for people to catch up on the series.
Starts at 3pm PST - 11pm UTC
This is not a substitute for the proper release; if you're interested in the series, download the best best release for the best experience. If you're too lazy or want to watch with others, check out the live stream. I gain nothing out of this.
I wouldn't say so but you can always see for yourself.
Some of the writing decisions in the old one are terrible, and the animation is extremely dated; more QUALITY than the original Gundam.
Reminder that she was based on pic related.
Doesn't it start next winter?
That's a bit early.
Not complaining about a Yamato thread though.
Please. Misaki is best whenever she's on screen.
>the black and white nature of the Gundam franchise
Uh what? Zeon might be the bad guys for most of Gundam, but the Feddies weren't above sacrificing civilians and using child soldiers. And Char is such a perfect noble villain that he's more interesting/relatable than the protagonist.
She's a mediocre Matsumoto gal. Maetel > Emeraldas > Yuki.
Forget Earth vs Zeon for a moment. With Gundam, it's always been:
Main cast = good guys
Cast that opposes them = bad guys
Here, right off the bat, even though the main cast and the enemy fiercely oppose each other, both sides have a great deal of humanity. Very few obnoxious, one dimensional shitters like Kamille or Jerid, which is all a hack writer like Tomino is capable of.
What if the opposing cast becomes the main cast in another show?
It should be over though. 2199 was tightly wrapped up at the end; I don't know or care about the original, but 2199 definitely doesn't need a sequel for the exact same reason Geass doesn't need one.
