should I watch UC Gundam in production order or chronological order
>>
In meme order
>>
>>13457335
Chronological order, so start with Ideon
>>
>>13457343

don't forget xabungle comes after 0079
>>
>>13457335
just watch Unicorn.
>>
Hey /m/ I wanna get into Gundam recommendation charts but don't know where to start.
>>
>>13457606
You should start with the "Muh" and then maybe try the original with the creators opinions to give you a feel for what that one guy thought.
Charts that separate by timeline are shit and should be skipped
>>
>>13457335
I'd go with a mix. (as long as you understand the animation will variate tremendously because of decades difference)

The UC stuff should be generally watched in chronological order. Sprinkle the OVAs in as they come up. (I'm one of the few people on this board that actually thinks Zeta is made better by watching 0083 first)
>>
>>13457743
You're one of the few for a reason.

You fucking cutie.

Production Order

Well yeah, I guess it is. Dunno why'd you wanna kill it, though.
>>
>>13458026
>logic

Yeah telling a newbie to watch 079 instead of 08th first is sooooooooooooooooo FUCKING logical am I right? NO NOW FUCK OFF!
>>
>>13458034
Why specifically 08th?
>>
>>13458034
>Obvious shitposter detected

Seriously though, how old are you?
>>
>>13458034
Why would you introduce some to Gundam with the worst UC OVA?

08th nostalgiafags are the damn worst.

>MUH GREETY RULLSUHM
>>
0083 first, everything else, then 0083 last.
>>
>>13457335
I've watched them both ways and honestly I think you get more out of watching it in chronological order. 0083 has more of an impact when you watch Zeta after and go 'OH, THERE'S THAT GUY'. Plus you don't have to wait for Zeta's slow ass exposition to piece together what the fuck happened from 0079 to Zeta.

Plus the 08th MS team -> 0080 -> 0083 movie night is always comfy as fuck.
>>
>>13458070
this guy knows what's up
>>
>>13457335
Everybody says production. But retrospectivley I think chronological may actually be better, well atleast with watching stardust memories before Zeta.
>>
>>13458940
Production order is best for first timers; in-series chronology is best for re-watching.

A lot of people get put off by the idea of watching 0079 first.

Here's what i'd recommend.
Watch 08th ms team and war in the pocket to sample the rest.
Than go
MSG trilogy

Optional Stardust memory, you can watch it after

Zeta (the series, trilogy is not canon)
ZZ
CCA
Unicorn

Origin is still in production, you can watch it after MSG whenever you want, really.

Late UC

F91
Victory

Watch turn A after all that, some alternate universe familiarity is recommended before as well.
>>
Why does everyone tell me to watch Zeta's TV run over the movies when the movies get rid of ZZ and everyone tells me that ZZ is terrible?
>>
>>13459623
>ZZ is terrible
You got meme'd senpai
ZZ is the medicine you'll need after sitting through Zeta
>>
>>13459623
ZZ isn't terrible per se.
The problem with it that the first half is much more comical than usual.
Again, that wouldn't be a problem, until you consider how serious the last parts of Zeta were, especially with all the deaths.
The second half is pretty good.
Also, despite Char and Amuro not being in ZZ, there are still bits of information needed to get the full experience of CCA.
Also you're depriving yourself of puru puru puru.
Zeta also has great pacing IMO. Not really a show i'd drag out as i usually do with 50-ish episode anime.
>>
>>13459648
>Again, that wouldn't be a problem, until you consider how serious the last parts of Zeta were, especially with all the deaths.
There is some tonal whiplash but honestly after Zeta I needed something a bit lighter.

It is a weaker series in general though
>>
>>13459642
>ZZ is the medicine you'll need after sitting through Zeta

Bitter shit that doesn't actually improve anything? Sounds about right. Especially considering Zeta is already perfect and can't be improved upon to begin with.
>>
>>13457335
Gundam is fucking stupid, so you should try to avoid it, but if you can't just watch 0079 and nothing else
>>
>>13459687
Now that I think about it, the entire series comes to an, "Ok"

As in, what entry in the franchise is really a 10/10 experience?
>>
>>13459720

The first one and arguably War in the Pocket.
The rest is awful shit apart from the mecha design in Zeta which, however, requires you to sit through 50+ episodes of Tomino misunderstandings and retarded characters.
>>
>>13459664
>Zeta is already perfect
Believing in a cult of Zeta I see
>>
>>13459726
By why watch War in the Pocket when I can watch Now and Then, Here and There?
>>
>>13457335
Either works, despite what the memesters will say. No, 0083 doesn't suddenly stop making sense if you watch it between the 0079 works and Zeta.
>>
>>13459720
0080, Zeta, Unicorn, X, SEED, and 00.
>>
>>13460010
>SEED
baitimus maximus
>>
>>13460013
I didn't say SEED Destiny, I said SEED. SEED is good.
>>
>>13460016
>SEED
that anon is still right. At it's best seed is below average
>>
>>13460019
I disagree.
>>
>>13457335

doesn't actually matter that much once you realize all the major stories were produced in chronological order anyway
>>
>>13460023
Enjoy bad melodrama, stock footage, huge plot convinces and a terrible MC then

inb4 someone says another gundam fits that
>>
>>13460050
Turn A comes to mind.
>>
>>13460010
>0080, Zeta, Unicorn, X, SEED, and 00.
>Not putting G.
>>
>>13457335
Production order.

I dunno what's up with this thread.
>>
>>13459435
Stop posting your shitty chart
>>
>>13460368
not my chart, but i did save it from that thread, honestly i agree with that anon
>>
>>13457335
Do whatever you want. It's your life.
>>
>>13457343
>Not starting with Raideen
How do you expect anyone to get into the Tomino expanded universe like that?

Wing, man. Come on. It basically invented all those things.
>>
>>13457335
I started with 0079 and I'm going to watch all the series in chronological order.
Also, I didn't expect 0079 to be THIS good! I always despised those old animations etc, but after 2 or 3 episodes you get accustomed to them, and you can enjoy the story and the dialogues. Yes, I'm really liking the characters. Especially Amuro
>>
>>13458191
>0083 has more of an impact when you watch Zeta after and go 'OH, THERE'S THAT GUY'

Except in Zeta those guys have major roles while they have cameos in 0083. Watching 0083 first could mean that you most likley don't pay attention to some of them and the cameo is sorta pointless then. 0083 is a prequel. It's intended to be watched after Zeta to sort of give more detail to the events that led to the rise of the Titans etc.

>Plus you don't have to wait for Zeta's slow ass exposition to piece together what the fuck happened from 0079 to Zeta.

It's been a while since i've seen Zeta but don't they cover the whole 0079-to-Zeta-thing in the first 10 episodes or something.

>08th MS team -> 0080 -> 0083 movie night

I might steal this idea. Maybe I'll even throw in the 0079 movies to make it the ultimate OYW-experience.
>>
>>13459738

Because we're talking about Gundam here.
>>
>>13460050
>Stop liking what i don't like

I hate SEED but for fucks sake, ease up with the salt.
>>
>>13457335
0079 and Zeta before anything else. You can then watch whatever you want, other than CCA and Unicorn.

Before you watch CCA and Unicorn, you have to go through the mess that is ZZ. But... well, it gets better around the second half. Not exactly good, but at least bearable.

Oh, and you need to watch CCA before F91, and F91 before you read Crossbone.
>>
>>13462787

>Before you watch CCA and Unicorn, you have to go through the mess that is ZZ

not really though
>>
>>13462811
You'll be missing important info if you skip it.
>>
>>13460051
>bad melodrama
What? When?! There's barely any melodrama at all, the infighting in the cast isn't very serious (like Borjanon making Dianna wash clothes) and the few real dramatic plot points are dealt with appropriately like the nukes

>stock footage
Again, when did Turn A overuse stock footage? I don't even think there was launch footage to reuse.

>huge plot convinces
I'll accept that because exact blonde twins

>terrible MC
Loran's a fine pilot and a hot waifu. He's not outstanding when it comes to his arc, but he's not offensive or annoying in any way and his middle-path personality fits the comfy tone of Turn A.
