Just finished my first gundam series, why do people say it's good?
Just watch the original movie trilogy
Because it's a decent scifi story? It has dry execution and dips in quiality once the trinity siblings are introduced but you're in for a rude awakening if you think you'll find many better anime of that nature made after it.
First season was good, second was mediocre and the movie was alright.
00 was many millennial & Gen Z's first gendumb due to it being the first gundam broadcast in HD. It's really mediocre series with squandered potential, but some people hype ti up purely due to nostalgia.
First half of SEED is just a retread of 0079 so it's automatically better even if everything shits the bed once the Freedom enters the picture.
0079 is the best entry in the series, and it is also the shortest main series entry. If you can't stand to watch the whole series then you should just give up on gundam.
Please, after the first couple of episodes you knew what you were in for. If you expected something else that's your problem, if you accepted it for what it was you probably had a good time.
In that order even. Wtf is going on with Sunrise all their shit keeps getting worse and worse, do they just not care anymore and are in it for the money?
The first season of Thunderbolt was at least entertaining. Besides it's not as big a disappointment since people already spoiled that it goes downhill after that. So yes season two was shit compared to season one but everyone here already expected it so it's not like we had high hopes for it.
The 0079 movies remove all the shit pacing and stupid filler they packed into 0079, there's really no reason not to just watch the movies.
This is coming from a guy who actually watched the entirety of 0079, then the movies, lest you think I'm some movie-only fag.
Season 1 was really good though, except Saji's circlejerk. Then season 2 came in which is very mediocre if not bad then the movie came in which is a disaster.
Too bad, I really like the designs compared to other series.
I'm still salty about Gundam X.
The only way to have an honest opinion on gundam is to watch most of them, and find out how they work.
The most important ones to watch are 0079, Zeta, CCA, and the UC OVA series. ZZ explains the newtype bullshit that happens in CCA, but you don't necessarily need to watch it.
The best show to follow the gundam formula is Code Geass.
you really just need to watch Gundam Build Fighters because
+no bloated lore that creates convoluted reasons why dudes with big robots shoot and punch each other while still being hard gay for each other. It's just kids playing with their toys.
+unlike most other gundam shows , it does at no point try to hide that it's an advertising campaign for plastic toys.
+some really nice custom designs on said plastic toys
+Gyanko (if you watch the inferior second season too)
+Ral-san, 35 years old (season 1 only)
>implying exia is best 00
It doesn't even have shoulder cannons
People don't really have much standards when it comes to animu, plus it's a mecha show, if you want the mainstream audience, you need to be flashy and retarded with tons of stupid drama.
First season of 00 was fucking great. Easily the best AU Gundam after Turn A. Second season was pretty average but it had its moments. Movie was shit. Still a really fun ride overall though.
None of you fuckers have mentioned the best Gundam series to ever have been created yet. For shame.
Its arguably the best gundam if you look at the general theme and idea of it. Also finally a no-nonsense gundam pilot, which is what I really wanted out of this series for so long, after all these years.
Season 1 is among the upper echelon's of gundam.
You did good OP.
Now go watch Fafnir.
YOU HAD ICCHI JOBBU
here is the best girl
Exia is amazing, but I love the 00 even more
The Qan[T] is where it's at.
I really liked G-Reco.
It has a lot of problems, chief of which is how condensed everything is, but I appreciate it more after every rewatch.
Thanks, I've been looking for that
For a second, I thought that was Mewtwo in his containment suit
>k*rts being removed in the first episode.
