but there was child abuse
>>
>It goes against everything Gundam stands for.
So it's actually good?
>>
>>153095753
It's basically 0083 part 2.

Pretty but kind of bad.
>>
>>153095753
What does Gundam stand for exactly?
>>
>>153096173
It's a shitty toy commercial and nothing more. There isn't a single good gundam show. Decent maybe, but not good.
>>
>>153096211
Most anime are essentially toy commercials, music videos, or trying to shill the manga/LN
>>
>>153095753
I'd agree on the technology being absurdly advanced but what else was wrong with it?
>>
>>153096211
In that case it really does go against what gundam stands for, as the author himself originally thought that it wouldn't ever get gunpla due to the difficulty of adapting the designs into toy format thanks to all the details, thrusters, and joint covers. And the HG kits are notably difficult to work with for a modern gunpla due to all those things and the bad seam lines they cause.

But Bandai sure showed him.

>>153096405
Gundam more so than normal for a teen targeted anime. Gunpla is a mass market item that isn't restricted to just hobby/anime based shops. Its more like those shows aimed at younger kids meant to shill toy merch like yokai watch, beyblade, etc. New gundam series are basically just big advertisements for Sunrise and Bandai to peddle their new line of model kits.

Kek.

How does it go against what gundam stands for?

A like it or hate it story

But that's not Unicorn, anon...
>>
>>153095753
>Why did people like this fan fiction garbage?
Because it was come out at the same time as IBO airing.
>>
>>153097103
How does Unicorn go against everything Gundam stands for?
>>
>>153097215
Unicorn's ending retcons F91 and Victory.
>>
>>153097441
It doesn't. Having a positive ending that implies that things will change doesn't mean it will eventually go that way. This is a Gundam staple if you didnt notice, see 0079 and CCA. People will ignore the box like they ignored UNDERSTANDING stopping Axis.

>>153096116
>0083
>bad
Other than the bad romance that every gundam ova suffers from, what was bad about it?
>>
>>153095753
>goes against everything Gundam stands for

Fucking elaborate because I've seen every UC Gundam series and most AU titles.
Thunderbolt is some of the best Gundam we've gotten in years.
>>
>>153099060
It doesn't even feel like a Gundam show. Too dark and gritty, violence too graphical, humorless, sexually explicit, no kids and newtype autism.
Gundam for people that don't like Gundam.
>>
>>153099515
So what you are saying is that Thunderbolt is a good piece of fiction and therefore not a good gundam.
>>
>>153098361

>why so serious
>eww sex
>no small children for me to sexualize
You produce so much estrogen that im starting to feel like a faggot.
>>
>>153099515
I don't agree with half your gripes on it. Gundam has always been kinda dark. At least in Thunderbolt they realize they're in a war and don't run off to do some bullshit beach episode or something.
I'd genuinely like to know what your favorite Gundam series is.

>>153099847
Build Fighters. It does by far the most with what it's got.
>>
>>153099515
Have you watched any Tomino Gundam?
>>
>>153095753
Gundam has never had one set aesthetic. It varies depending on who is doing it.

there were plenty of kids

they were all slaughtered, though
>>
>>153099515
there were some kids. they all died on their first missions, as kids usually do in war
>>
Where is the IBO thread? There's usually one or did no one watch today's episode?
>>

not much happened that we weren't already expecting
>bad guy gets wrecked
>not-char starts insurrection
>>

>protagonist is an indecisive pacifist fucker
>antagonists retarded
>reused scenes
At least Thunderbolt changed the stale Gundam template
>>
>>153100358
we have zion as the protagonist this time, so its not surprising everything else is turned on its head as well. gundam user is a psycopath, the young die first, the burden of command is actually incredibly tough for the unprepared, etc etc
>>
>>153095753
>hy did people like this fan fiction garbage

You mean like all those other side stories?

I know really makes you wonder

>>153099775
Case in point.
>>153099847
Gundam dark is nothing like what you see in Thunderbolt.
Do you think that the scene you posted is anything like, for example, the scenes when all the kids are thrown in the meat grinder and die like fleas while screaming in agony? >>153100222 >>153100226
Even when millions of people died, Tomino Gundam was never that explicit and distasteful.
>>
>>153099965
How can you even call Build Fighters Gundam, it's literally Medabots with Gunpla models.
I liked season 1 tho.
>>
>>153095753
So it isn’t a retarder adolescent power fantasy.
>>
>>153098361
All the attempts at drama were bad, not just the romance. 0083 is good mindless action and schadenfreude.
>>
>>153100358
I mean the format has been changed before, its like not Thunderbolt is the first to ever do it
>>
>>153098361
Not even katoki wank could save it.

I was expecting Akihiro to land the blow, but that worked too. Amazingly enough, I think an Anon called it last week.
>>
>>153095753
>It goes against everything Gundam stands for.
I haven't watched this one, is it not about a bunch of kids proving adults wrong wrapped up in a sloppy anti-war message while making war look fucking awesome in order to sell toys at the same time?

Check

So Thunderbolt only had one thing and its not even a staple of the franchise.
>>
>>153095753
What's wrong with free jazz and big mecha sorties?
>>
>>153104279
Jazz has been good in other anime. But in Thunderbolt it just sounded like a mosquito.
>>
>>153104521
Thats an oddly specific comparison
>>
>>153095753
>It goes against everything Gundam stands for.
That's not a criticism, nigger. Whether it gels with other series with the same title has pretty much nothing to do with whether it itself is good.
>>
>>153104765
>>153100811
These. I bet OP hates G Gundam too.
>>
>>153105032
Hating Turn A would be a better bet
