What's the deal with the Gundam series?

Why are they all so dry and boring?

If someone on /a/ finds them entertaining, can you please explain the appeal?
>>
If you don't like them that's fine. This isn't /m/. Only the first one is a must-watch
>>
>What's the deal with the Gundam series?
>Why are they all so dry and boring?
it's a toy commercial, nothing more
only autists are really into Gundam
>>
>>151985870
That pretty much sums it up. It's fun watching people fling shit at each other over which ones are the best and how the recent ones are ruining the franchise when it's all garbage.
>>
>>151985759
>What's the deal with the Gundam series?

They're the modern day equivalent of this.

Toy commercials for kids.
>>
>>151986006
all anime is, but it doesn't make this shut
>>
>>151985902
Well some of the OVAs are good at least.
Another problem with Gendumb is it takes itself too seriously but that's also why the autists love it. So they can talk about it as if it was real events, like they do with MuvLuv, another autist magnet.
>>151986048
Most anime is manga/LN/game ads.
Gundam is the mecha equivalent of Naruto.

Don't kid yourself, most Gundam shows/OVA/movies are not good.

It's the same deal with Macross and tons of other franchises.
>>
>>151985759
nah you just have shit taste
>>
>>151985902
>>151986103
Only people with questionable tastes will say things like that, but what can I say, here people wank over Evashit like it was something made by God himself when its yet another mecha series with all the tropes and psychological themes that are usual in a mecha series.
>>
>>151986135
If you had put G Gundam in that list I might have taken you seriously.
>>
>>151986135
not him but
0079 is entertaining but mediocre and repetitive
Zeta is just a boring soap opera
SEED becomes boring shit after Kira dies
0083 stupid plot stupid characters
F91 clusterfuck
G Reco clusterfuck

SDF and Do you remember love are the only legit good ones.

Zero is mediocre
Plus is mediocre
7 is dumb as fuck
F is mediocre
Delta is shit
>>
>>151986346
Zero has fun characters and is short
Plus has good animation
Frontier has good songs and waifus
Only 7 and Delta are truly mediocre
>>
If you want a proof Gundam fans are literal autist just try to mention to them that Try was good and you liked it.

fuck you
>>
>>151985759
Its about fun and sometimes tragic adventures in a space ship, pretty simple but can be enjoyable like how G Reco is about a trip from earth to Jupiter and back.
Sometimes waifus end up being melted by a blade made of hot plasma but such is war.
>>
>>151986346
Autists like you like SDF because they think it's a war drama while it's actually a SOL/comedy with action bits.
>>
>>151986416
Anon don't even try anymore. It hurts.
>>
>>151986339
Oh yeah, and G-Reco in Bad Tier

I liked it for the characters and character development. I also respect it for what it did at the time.
Meanwhile I expect more from the later sequels we got. But they mostly just rehash ideas and make it worse.

Do note, I am not a huge Macross fan here and I wouldn't even put SDF/DYRL on my top 50 list.

>>
>>151986346
Macross 7 was the most fun.
SDF was the most solid.
Frontier tried to ride 7 but was trash.
I haven't watched Delta yet but it sounds like I don't want to.

Humanity refused to change so a man gotta do what he needs to do.
Kinda like how Japan refused to surrender and got nuked.
>>
>>151985759
I'd prefer to talk about Tittyko.
>>
>>151986833
If that is your reasoning then you may as well put all the series in bad.
>>
>>151985759
Let's talk about tittyko.
>>
>>151985759
I only love the UC shows (some of them). All AU shows were terrible (like G, Wing, Seed, IBO etc.)

There is no training/tournament arcs in Gundam, except for G.

Wait, where's the IBO episode?
>>
The only OK ones are 0079 and 00.
>>
>>151988733
Next week anon.

Thunderbolt was pretty fucking rad. Only non-Tomino Gundam is watchable.

Many anime could be toy commercials, but they're not all dry and boring.

I recently watched one, Gundam 00 I believe. Got to like 6-7 episode because I couldn't go on.


Its too dry and too much action, the pacing is shit. There needs to be proper build up of escalation/peaks and drops that should slow down. Seems like whoever makes Gundam have no idea how to do proper flow.
