So I've never seen a Gundam series, but obviously I've seen dozens of Gundam designs around /m/. However, the vast majority of them are the most generic, uninspired Japanese mech design. The only genuinely good one I've ever seen is pic related, which is also the only Gundam series that really has me interested in watching.
But anyways, to the point. I'm not just shitposting. Can anyone show me at least a single other Gundam design that is actually good, and not an overdesigned mess of triangles? I'm genuinely curious.
Over-designed is subjective. There's tons of good gundam designs, and using Turn A as your base isn't fair due to its unique design.
I can agree that most designs could be better, but turn A literally looks like a repainted professor robotnik mecha. I can't agree that it's very good in the gundam sense, because of that huge stache.
Just remember, the uninspired Japanese Mecha style you are complaining about was for the most part invented by Gundam, allot of the Gundam designs looked much more fresh when they first came out and nothing was like it.
Pic related, from Gundam but not a Gundam, since you haven't seen the shows you probably don't know the distinction yet. I'll go look for some good ones though.
I love Turn A as well btw.
>Overdesigned mess of triangles
The only Gundam I've seen that comes to mind when talking about traingles is the Xi.
The Xi is glorious, OP. Deal with it.
Yeah, most of the good Gundam suits aren't Gundams at all.
Zeta Gundam is full of great sleek designs like this bad boy.
I was just about to post that. Instead, have a different one.
00 was babby's first series, and I overall liked it. What's another good starting point in the gundam series?
We all know the only true gundam is the this baby.
Me too, not as much as the pilot though.
The thing with GBF is that a lot of its charm is references to old series; it's just a generic shonen tournament series other than the fandom nods.
have the right idea; go back and watch through UC. Or watch G Gundam if you enjoy fun.
OP, do you want a "gundam" or just a design from Gundam franchise? Because ghis could very well be a thread about cool designs from Gundam.
Mobile suit SD gundam or sangokuden maximum fun. Ms SD gundam does a good job representing the entire UC time line before unicorn
/m/ pushing this idea that you HAVE to have seen other Gundam series before watching BF is horseshit. The cameos aren't essential to understanding the story, which is more about gunpla than anything else.
In fact, I'd go as far as to say BF is one of the most beginner-friendly series.
If you want to wrongly color someone's expectations for the rest of the franchise.
>The cameos aren't essential to understanding the story
But they're essential to the setting, some of the dialogue, and basically every other aspect of GBF that I could possibly think of.
But yeah, it's not essential to the story (even though the story takes from previous Gundam works as well).
But the story's totally generic. The only thing that makes GBF different from Fightan Show X is that it's a love-letter to Gundam fandom. It's not just the cameos, either; in a show based around models of mobile suits, it helps to know the mobile suits.
but that's just a crusty old faggot's opinions, feel free to penn.png
Good for it's time (which is not now)
Really guys, only one great one so far? Step your shit up if you want me to watch anything beyond Turn A.
>most generic, uninspired Japanese mech design
literally what are you doing on /m/
Watching shows with interesting, creative, and aesthetically pleasing Japanese mech designs. What you're on /m/ is the real question.
>waah someone on the internet doesn't like my shit taste
Except it's more noticible and aggravating in OVAs because of their shorter length, whereas in a series you have more time to process (and possibly even justify) a character's actions.
This isn't your blog, Anon. Check the URL bar at the top of your browser and make sure you entered in the right address.
Are you deliberatly trying to release cthulhu?
> Step your shit up if you want me to watch anything beyond Turn A
Except we don't. Someone with your attitude would be a detriment to all gundam fans you discuss it with. Please leave.
>telling someone to grow up when you are acting like a child by starting off a thread with 'show me a good Gundam design that isn't an overdesigned mess because my curiosity just must be sated'
Furthermore with the comments about "Japanese mech design" that implies that mecha designs by the Japanese have an inherent badness or something and makes it look like you're a Battletech big boy who loves his boxes
Movies vs. series shitposting would be a step up from this thread right now. Can we just go back to cool designs? The haters can fuck themselves on a heat rod.
(Assuming you mean all the designs from the Gundam series and not just the ones called Gundam)
Please tell me which of these designs is "an overdesigned mess of triangles". Also, post some good designs (in your opinion).
Dunno why you keep on posting Dougram screenies.
Seems like arguing that Gundam has good mech design while reminding people of objectively better shows is kinda counter to your point.
this is some truly outrageous faggotry right here.
>So I've seen every Gundam, and obviously my opinions holds more weight than anyone else here. So please post pictures and I'll go through them one by one to tell you why you're wrong.
You could have opened this thread with "post your favorite mobile suit" and gotten close to the same results.
But no, you had to be a self absorbed dick.
>That one in the upper right hand corner
TOO MANY POINTS
TOO MANY TRIANGLES
What is that thing, Spike gundam?
I got bad news for you...
Oh no, I don't hate the designs. The one on the top legitimately looks worse than the one on the botttom. Like, look at that rocket launcher. How is he supposed to hold that with those two on his shoulders?
I've actually legitimately been interested in SEED. Does it at least have good action scenes?
>Anything but a top-tier design
You are easily the worst shitposter this board has ever seen. Get your horrid taste out of here immediately.
I-is OP still here?
You, I like you and that drawing. Thank you for posting that.
I watched the TV series a while ago, and then the movies last week. I'd say they're pretty much on par with each other, together both of them make up for the other one's flaws.
But I don't want to shit up this thread any further.
There are some neat montage action scenes set to some cool songs, but be prepared for a lot of recycled animation.
He probably ran off crying like the little baby he is.
SEED's not actually as shit as /m/ says it is. It's wholly mediocre, by no means good, but it's not a festering pile. The action scenes early on are fine, but once Kira gets into the Freedom it goes a little heavy on the beamspam.
You aren't doing much either to say that Gundam has bad designs either. Do you have any idea how many Gundam series and spinoffs there are and how many different different mechanical designers there all are? Where do you get off saying they are all generic when you've gotten all your information from shitposts on /m/? To write off Gundam designs based on a mere few dozen, is like writing off all shounen manga because of a few battle series you think are bad, as shounen is a genre and not a demographic with all sorts of different flavors of series within
It's silly, yes, and there's definitely some pants-on-head bits, but it's not an unwatchable abomination like some people here make it out to be.
I have no such words for Destiny.
Seriously. In some parts of the US they still hang people for it.
Oh good. His shit taste was getting hard to bare.
>but it's not an unwatchable abomination like some people here make it out to be
I can agree with that.
I actually liked the first half of Seed. Not legitimately liked, but like the same way you'd watch a cheesy soap opera just to find out who was fucking who.
Once you can get past the recycled animation, SEED is... ok. You might even think it's "great" the first time you watch it but your opinion of the show will get progressively worse over time once you expose yourself to other series.
At least that's what happened to me.
Does anyone else really like G-Selfie's face?
SEED isn't very good. There's nothing about it that is exceptionally terrible except the animation in the original TV version, but the remastered version is better in that respect. When you get done watching it you probably won't want to hurt yourself, but don't expect to feel super excited and wanting more.
The best part of the entire series for me is the bit where the fucking skygrasper cuts the guns off a battleship using the giant sword and grappling hook of the goddamned sword striker pack holy shit.
She likes the face as well? Who knew. I stopped watching her videos because I can't stand her voice and bad lighting setup.
>I'm also not OP, for what it's worth.
That's very important to not look like a complete idiot and only a partial idiot
I was fiddling around in my doug folder because it has great reactions and responses for everything
>I liked the first half of SEED.
Keep in mind, SEED's first half is a rehash of Gundam. It's not until closer to the last third or so that it starts to 'sort of' diverge.
So really, it's just MSG with teenage edgelord drama and really pointy mobile suits. If you're into that kind of thing it's not necessarily a bad thing.
There are parts of SEED that are alright, but I think for most people on /m/ any respect for SEED was dashed by its last third. Any remaining respect for SEED was completely obliterated by Destiny, which seemed to have been an experiment to find out just how lazy a studio can get when making an anime.
As a tie-in to that Anon commenting about how he was tired of seeing the same 100 mobile suits, I hope you like Goufs and Zakus, because those are in Destiny too.
For a while I thought I was finally used to seeing contrarian shitposting and genuinely terrible opinions. But this guy just took things way, way too far...
I was willing to write him off as some newfag who just didn't know better until the Qubeley thing.
It's not okay to not like that particular fictional robot design. Not okay at all.
We're not really butthurt insomuch as we think you're a pathetic piece of shit and we wish you would never come on this board again because you pretend to have shit taste, and you legitimately think that you've trolled us.
You can't be butthurt about shit taste. If someone has shit taste, you can't explain that away or argue about how your taste is un-shit while you [trollface intensifies] silently to yourself. Your taste is simply shit, and we proclaim it as such and move on with our lives.
You would have gotten more mobile suit posts if you had just designated this as a dump thread. Instead you designated this as a "tell me how shit I am" thread.
Oh, and congratulations. You've made yourself today's most hated Anon. Now get the fuck /out/.
>posts an essay about how not butthurt you are
Right. I got a shit ton of gundam pics now, and the thread will probably go for 50 more posts at least. It doesn't really affect you, so you're welcome to leave or give me more shit. I win either way.
No way. It's such an obvious and dumb joke. The kind that must be made no matter the cost.
Seed actually becomes really entertaining when you put compare it to MSG.
>Casval is Amuro now
>Mirai is Bright
>Sleggar is related to Casval/Amuro and Char, and then becomes Char in the sequel
>Fraw Bow is psychotic
>Lalah is an idol, also Fraw dies in her place
Shit's like the fanfiction of a teenage girl who wants to "fix" gundam.
>Lel look at how butthurt you are because you responded to my post
>I win either way, so give me more shit.
So anyhow, this is a mecha dump thread. Post your favorite mobile suit designs and tell OP his taste is shit.
>I thought it was pretty clear that I started this thread just to make people pissed so I could expand my mech pic collection.
>But anyways, to the point. I'm not just shitposting. Can anyone show me at least a single other Gundam design that is actually good, and not an overdesigned mess of triangles? I'm genuinely curious.
Which is it OP?
Wait, so instead of going to google images and typing in "Gundams", you came here, and created some fake-ass story so you could enrage people and get gundam pictures at the same time?
And you called us retarded?
Do I look like most people?
Also I haven'tanything from this thread. I don't even know why I made it, but I'm satisfied with the results. I wish toku could get this kind of attention for something so insignificant.
>I wish Toku could get this kind of attention
What are you even talking about? Toku boards are front page almost all the time here on /m/.
This is hilarious. OP has gone for a cross between madness and total damage control.
You know what man? Fuck you.
Get that stick out your ass, wash the shit taste out of your mouth, or fuck off to some other board.
>I was shitposting and making people upset on purpose to get an image dump instead of just asking which would have yielded better results on /m/ since we're all very happy to contribute
of course you would know that if you weren't so busy being an insufferable cunt
what is the real reason you made this thread, anon?
