Do I really *need* to watch ZZ? I want to watch as much Gundam as I can, but watching ZZ makes me really wish I wasn't. I don't know why, It's not like it's the worst thing ever, just something about it makes me want to just... not.
>>
>doesn't want to watch ZZ
plz you'll miss out on everything. how will you post in Haman fag threads? how will you understand the love for a Purus? Wanna watch Unicorn? well ZZ ties into it.

plus you'll miss out on Jewdough the greatest swag master.
>>
>>11813067
ZZ isn't as bad as people will tell you. It does improve somewhat, but as a whole it's only ever referenced again in Unicorn and if you don't like it/plan on watching Unicorn there isn't much of a point.
>>
>>11813067
Yes, you need to watch all the shows that you don't want to watch. I think you should give yourself an enema while watching them, just for emphesis.

ZZ is fun though, are you not fun person?
>>
>>11813067
How far in it did you get?

As far as Gundams go, I don't think any show changes as much as ZZ does over the course of its various arcs.
>>
>>11813098
Given some of the posts here, I worry that some people actually do this.
>>
>>11813067
>Do I really *need* to watch ZZ?

Do you *need* to watch anything? Of course not. But don't complain about it if you aren't going to watch it.
>>
>>11813089
>It does improve somewhat

It improves for like five episodes when they are in the desert and then goes right back to shit because they were busy making CCA. Which is a shame because whenever I think about ZZ I really like all the ideas it had but the execution was just god awful.

At first i'm actually hate it, but love it when Puru appear.

The only minus part on ZZ for me is not much grunt on the AEUG side and all Argama pilot are tennager there's wasnt even adult like in Zeta.
>>
>>11813067
Up to you I guess, it's kinda relevant to Unicorn at the very least, I thought ZZ was pretty fun.

My issue with ZZ is Judau got his shit together so quick they barely did anything interesting with his character for the rest of the series. He doesn't really have much of an arch going from a lil shit to respectable pilot like Amuro and Kamille had.
>>
>>11813252
That's because Judau is the new Bright, even if he fills in for Amuro & Kamille.

The little shits are all his friends that aren't Iino.

>>11813151
Aw come on, you guys know what I mean. Also that enema comment is actually pretty relevant to my life right now. Weird.

>>11813105
Like, the first few episodes. It just hasn't really grabbed me. I feel like the only parts of it I like are the parts that continue on from Zeta (Kamille in a coma, Fa, Yazan), and I didn't even like Zeta that much.
>>
>>11813291
Things get a lot better the further you go. First they'll get better, then you hit Moon Moon, and wonder what drugs they put Fukuda on, then it gets better again.

ZZ is, effectively, the Anti-Zeta. It stays pretty light despite the fact that shit went from bad to worse throughout Zeta. Also, you need to push through if only to see a fully animated colony-drop.
>>
I understand that you don't want to, because I went through the exact same thing. Overall, no, it's not necessary, but I think it's good to do for UC completion. I wouldn't bother watching if I was extremely limited on time though.
>>
>>11813067
So I want to get into Gundam but I want to get to the part with Based Kampfers and HY-Goggs as quickly as possible. Are there any UC series I can bypass?

Can I skip Zeta? It wasn't very good if I recall correctly.
>>
>>11813324
>can i skip zeta
then why bother. if you skip the meat and potatoes of the UC why bother with the UC. go watch a AU gundam if you don't want to spend the time to watch the huge amount of content the UC offers.
>>
>>11813324
Are there any shows with Kampfers and Hygoggs besides 0080? If so, you can just skip to 0080.
>>
>>11813324
Do you give a shit about UC? If so then you shouldn't skip Zeta because it plays a huge role in Char and Amuro's story arc.
>>
>>11813330
>>11813332
>>11813340

I guess I should give it another try. I assume after watching the first one I'll understand it more.

Also, Kampfer and HY-Gogg star in the same series? Rad.
>>
>>11813324
Watch Mobile Suit Gundam, then watch 0080.

Done.

You might like Zeta and some of the OVAs and may as well give the other shows a try just to see how you feel about 'em.
>>
>>11813349
>I assume after watching the first one I'll understand it more.

Yeah that's a really good idea considering it's a direct sequel with many of the same characters returning.
>>
>>11813324
i'm pretty sure you're thinking of 0080
>>
>>11813067
Pic related.

Even in the early episodes of Shangri-La, I knew I liked ZZ Gundam, and there was something special about it. People hated it cause of the humor, but this was the first time we got in-depth look at colony life in the series. Then the Puru arc began, and it was solidified as my favorite Gundam series. {I'm not even a lolicon.}

If you don't want to watch it, don't watch it. And maybe you'll have that burning itch inside you to come back to it later.

>>11813067
I'll tell you this, anon. As silly as the early episodes are, which I felt similarly about when I watched them, it gets more serious later on. IIRC there aren't a lot of times that are devoid of the kids antics until towards the end.

However, around halfway through it hooked me in, even more than Zeta. Unlike Zeta I was not too pissed off at all these cyber newtypes and Katz's to enjoy the show, and that cemented ZZ as my favorite series.

Plus I fuggen love the ZZ itself.

There's Glemmy, Haman and the Purus to make up for it. Just make sure to not to aneurysm during Shangri-La or Moon Moon.

>>11813350
If he wants to get to 0080 as quickly as possible, why not just start with it? Don't tell me you're one of those production-order-fags.

>>11813067
First series are painful to watch. Very painful.
But it will show how shitty Federation is. Even without Titans.
>>
Op, don't force yourself to watch 50 episodes of a show you don't like just for the sake of e-peen. I've done this more times than I can remember and it isn't worth it.
>>
>>11813138
>Which is a shame because whenever I think about ZZ I really like all the ideas it had but the execution was just god awful.
That's funny because that's exactly how I feel about Zeta

>>11813943
What are you even trying to say. ZZ is one series
>>
>>11813067
You don't need to watch ZZ unless you're a UC enthusiast, in which case it's relevant to the overall plot.

However, you can still be a Gundamfag by watching G, Wing, X, 08th, 0080, 0083 and F91. You won't get Goofy, Jesus, Space Autism, UNDERSTANDING or kill all Purus, but it'll still be a pretty enjoyable ride.

The only thing you'll miss out on is space aztecs and shitty writing.

I don't think the references in Unicorn would have been as immensely satisfying without having seen ZZ.

Also, more Haman-sama.
>>
>>11813735
It depends on the proportions of those who draws or build it. This one--->>>11813631 is an excellent ZZ.

Is proportionate and not too much stocky.
it is also true that the ZZ is not an agile machine like the old Z. is more like a walking fortress with the fire power of obliterate anything.

The original three Gundam shows are great. Things have varying quality from there but I also really enjoyed Victory and 0080.

0083 is a beautiful story of cuckoldry like few others. The beta protag does everything right by his woman, fights for his country and risks his life trying to save countless people. Then he gets dumped for a genocidal maniac with no respect for other men's personal space who doesn't even think Kou is worth killing.

And what does he get for all his trouble? Maybe a little pity nookie? Nope. JUST A CHANCE TO BUNK WITH BUBBA!

He winds up red pilled as fuck and hell bent on chillaxing for the rest of his days as a laid back test pilot because fuck women and country. Then Keith shows up and it's bro time...until he sees Nina.

It's clear when the shot slowly zooms in on his cold, blank, hateful expression that he's thinking "you've got some tits to still be here, bitch". Kou even tries to fake a smile but still can't stop himself from reverting to that resentful glare.

We all know what would've happened next if the head honchos hadn't made them cut to the credits. So yeah, don't go shitting on 0083.

And here I was, thinking I had a pretty good idea of what the rest of UC was gonna be like.

>>11813962
I dunno, even if I end up not liking it it still sounds like ZZ is worth watching for the references in Unicorn. I really like that kind of thing. Like, I didn't really care for Zeta that much, but the parts that call back to the original MSG (pretty much anything to do with Neo Zeon) made it worth it to me.
>>
>>11814666
>And what does he get for all his trouble? Maybe a little pity nookie? Nope. JUST A CHANCE TO BUNK WITH BUBBA!

You say this like Nina framed him for the crime. She didn't. He had his orders to sit that one out, he chose not to and participated in Grand Theft Gundam.

That had nothing to do with Nina and everything to do with his own issues with Gato and his personal ethics.

His going to jail was the result of crooked manly men like Bask and Jamitov. Nina knew fuck all about that.

Yeah, Nina a shit, but you can only blame her for so much before you start going all Tipsy M'Fedora.
>>
>>11813067
You're an idiot.
>>
>>11815322
nice, you sure showed him
>>
>>11815291
It was solely her betrayal that rendered everything he did in vain, forcing him to go back a disgrace rather than a hero. So yeah, it was still entirely her fault.

I mean, the Feddies couldn't just go and jail the man who stopped a colony drop and avenged an entire fleet FOR GREAT FEDERATION JUSTICE, and then still claim to be true to their cause. They'd laughed out of the room in disgrace by anyone with even half a brain.

But as for the guy who stole a Gundam and completely failed to make any difference at all? Ha. Nobody's going to give a crap.

Nina was truly the writer's gift to the Titans. She's basically the anti-Aina.
>>
>>11815271
>It still sounds like ZZ is worth watching for the references in Unicorn.
There's really not much reference to double zeta in unicorn.

Didn't enjoy watching for the first few episodes or so.
Grew to like it a bit
Turned off again at noon moon
Got pretty good especially during the arc on earth
God bored again after Haman smuggled onboard


It's a mixed bag

Nina Purpleton was a Zeon agent. The only scene missing was her putting on a Zeon uniform and hailing a Zeon flag.

If you watched Z you might as well watch ZZ.
Nothing comes close to as disappointing with tons of plot convenience like Z.

Seem to remember that there were no better candidates, at that time. They had to take the GP03 with weapons and the complicity of the captain.

The original test pilot, according to Evolve, has died protecting La Vie en Rose.

Kampfer is in 0080 exclusively I believe. Hy-Goggs may be in the original series, but I think that's it.

>>11819209
Nope, Hygoggs are 0080 only as far as animated material is concerned. They are, however, in a number of games:Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny, Mobile Suit Gundam: Journey to Jaburo, Mobile Suit Gundam: Lost War Chronicles, Gundam Battle Assault 2, Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C. 0081, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs.

Unfortunately yes. it was a troubled production.
It would not hurt a ZZ New translation that synthesizes the series with two or three movies and reorganize a bit better 'whole story.

I'd like to

Well shit. Just when ZZ was finally getting better.
>>
>>11817475
I remember there being huge debate on the angles of Nina and Gato, their positions and whether or not she could have seen his face. Then this all becomes meaningless anyway because HE MADE A RADIO ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE GUNDAMJACK. She heard Gato's voice.
>>
One of my main problems with ZZ is that I didn't like ANY of the main characters.. Beecha and Mondo? GOD the two of them are so annoying without contributing anything, even Judau is just.. well he's lame.. Felt like the character just sorta happened.. never cared for him and only ever rooted against him. I literally watched the show for Haman of which there wasn't enough of her and to see her get killed by Judau.. ugh
