just finished watching the original Gundam movie trilogy. Should i move on to Zeta or should i watch some of the OVAs as to not burn myself out? also what's your favorite Gundam series?

>Watched the movie trilogy instead of the TV show
You made a mistake. Also, OPs can't bump their own threads.
>>
>>161362331
why was it a mistake?

turn a

>>161362368
Because you watched a 43 episodes story condensed into a six hours version.

>>161362482
from what i hear a lot of it was filler besides fans agreed it is a viable way to get into the franchise

>I hear a lot of it was filler
No it wasn't. There were some filler / uninteresting episodes here and there but saying that the majority of it was filler is bullshit.
>>
>>161361088
You can watch the one year war OVAs, I don't think there's anything in Origins that wasn't explained in 0079
>>
>>161362744
okay what did i miss then?

Hey man, while this other guy bums on you real quick. A lot of people say to watch it in release order, but I think it's fun to watch them chronologically too.

Give 8th MS team and war in the pocket a go. Zeta is kind of lacking in both movie and series...

The last third if the tv show, from roughly ep. 29 to the end is when the show got good. The first two compilation movies worked well because there was a ton of filler until they got to Jaburo. After Jaburo the tv show's pacing picked up, with hype happening all the way to the end. The third mobie overcompresses this tight pacing hurting the sense of urgency and desperation and mindbreak of the war grinding down on everyone.

Seems like the guy who wrote this, little salty about IBO. I mean it shouldn't have that many cons.

>>161365867
Again this bullshit list with Gundam X "Considered one of the best of the whole franchise" and so many "considered the low point of franchise".

Some old anon has yet the original pic instead of this edited farce?

The first series (0079) is the best, only Zeta, War in the Pocket and Turn A come close.
>>
>>161365311
It's not just the last third. While I agree with what you said Encounters in space still conveys aptly the story of the series. In contrast Soldiers of sorrow is complete mess that combines several subplots that don't really mesh together very well and thus more or less botches them all, despite it containing some very important character building moments.
Ramba Ral's subplot feels pretty much like an afterthought. The point of the whole conflict between Amuro and Bright is lost. I sometimes like to imagine that this is where the whole "Bright is a child-slapping badass" meme comes from.

>>161362331
Why not
>>
>>161361088
Yeah, Zeta or 0080 next.

Probably don't watch the movies for Zeta because the cut between old footage and new is really jarring.
>>
>>161370234
In a meta way, the weird pacing of the first half of the show reinforced the theme of civilians getting drafted into a war with stretches of bored filler time punctuated by sheer terror of fighting for survival. The filler parts gave time to illustrate the sinking in of military routines and PTSD formation, Amuro & co. slowly breaking with the occasional snapping under the pressure.

0080, Zeta has gorgeous animation but the writing is terrible, MUH FOUR.

Watch it in order of release. They are all written at the knowledge level of the viewer having seen the previously released shows.

Or just watch G.

Zeta(TV) > CCA

>>161361088
Zeta is really fucking unique while still being representative of late 80s anime. Its also very different tonally from 0079 so I don't think it'll burn you out. Just make sure you watch the TV series rather than the movies because the latter changes the ending for the (generally agreed) worse.
