0079, CCA, ZZ, and 0083 are garbage

I bet G Gundam or Gundam Wing is your favorite Gundam.

But War in the Pocket was shit.
Thunderbolt has Zeon get their shit fucked in the second half anyways.
Stardust Memory ends with Zeon getting their shitfucked.

How does UC have any Zeon fanwank?

0079 is literally the best Gundam though.

Most expanded.

>>155815639
muh SHA!
BUt in 00709 and Z you could tell that the writing definitely made Zeon sympathetic despite still being shown as evil.

War in the Pocket was shit. The animation was decent at times but the rest of it was absolute shit.

Al is a tremendous fucking retard and the only good suit besides the plain Zaku was the Kampfer and that got like five minutes of actual screentime. The plot is completely retarded and Zeon is so buttfuckingly stupid that they get caught by colony border patrol when trying to nuke these Japs. You can't even call it Zeon fanwank when both the protagonist from Zeon and the commander both die while the Federation is doing fine.

The Gundam Alex is also the ugliest Gundam to grace the franchise in a long time.

Lalah was a bunch of shit though.

Why do people complain about characters in a show like you're meant to love every single one? Characters don't have to be likable
>>
>>155815921
That's fine but making all of your characters unlikable and your show boring doesn't make for a very good show
>>
anyone know when the ost for thundebolt s2 is out?
>>
>>155815948
Really Chris was unlikable? Bernie was unlikable? The plot was good and I liked that they focused in the scope of the OVAs. Not everything has to be about as large scale as gundams usually are. Shows how war affects everyone

>Bernie
>lying faggot that uses a kid to further his goal of obliterating said kid's hometown then feels guilty and kills himself in a suicide launch

I'm also not complaining about the scale, that would go against the entire point of the series.

ONLY IN SPECS!

Now now, I might have disagreements with Zeta but it's nowhere near as bad as the ZZ Gundam.

Yeah it was bad but Zeta's aesthetics still >>>>> your fave

>>155816645
i love FA ZZ

>>155816788
That monstrosity of metal has no reason in maintaining anything close to a humanoid form, might as well just become a block with beam cannons and other weapons attached.

Every story has the other side seem like super assholes, and about 3/4 of the way in the protagonist's faction also turns out to be assholes.

GUNDAM TV SERIES OFFICIAL RANKING:
1. Turn A
2. Zeta
3. 0079
4. V
5. ZZ

Rest aren't worth ranking
>>
>>155818765
The people behind Gundam already said at the time, Sydney was almos empty so it wasn't that bad really.
>>
>tfw still no series about the war between the controllers of Turn A and Turn X, which culminates into the end of the Dark History
>>
>>155819755
>no series on how the MB missed the amazon tower when everything from moon to jupiter got fucking nuked
>>
>>155815056
Nothing, Cosmic Era is the best.
>>
>>155819050
Actually it goes like:

1. SEED Destiny
2. Victory
3. X
4. 00 Season 2
5. SEED

By disagreeing you are not a true gundam fan. And lets be honest Turn A was a lousy anniversary series
>>
>>155819956
Remove victory from that blasphemy of a list
>>
>>155819956
>>155820003
And X while you're at it
>>
>>155815056
Most development since most of the series explore the consequences/aftermath of previous series.
>>
>>155816191
Not unless it gets ported to PC.
>>
>>155820010
Nah.
>>
>>155816112
The story doesn't really focus on Chris, it's more about Bernie and Al. Your characterization of Bernie is also dumb as fuck, 'cause you're just trying really hard to make it seem stupid.

He's a Zeon pilot loyal to his team, trying to complete a mission so that he can be an Ace pilot, or further his goals, but it's not like he wanted everyone on the colony dead. Plus he likes Chris and Al too much to run away, and not at least try to stop the place from getting nuked. He felt that he had to do something, no matter how desperate.

What makes a character likeable to you? People never specify what makes a character unlikable when they say this, and at this point I just assume it's a buzzword people throw in so their opinion seems valuable.
