So I just finished all of the original MSG and Zeta, and now I'm about five episodes into ZZ Gundam.

Is it absolutely necessary to watch all of this before CCA? I knew that ZZ was going to be a "Meh" watch, but I didn't think it would be this retarded. I hear it gets better around episode 20-21, but I dunno if I want to slog through that many episodes.

On a slightly unrelated note, should I watch Unicorn immediately after CCA or get through the major OVAs (08th MS Team, 0080, 0083) first?

I'm just a little further down the same path as you in terms of viewing, finished CCA last week. ZZ does get a lot better at the half way point but it is ok to skip some episodes early on if you have to. Once they get to Earth, shit starts to pick up.

As for Unicorn or OVAs next, it's up to you. I'm going through 08th and War In The Pocket before Unicorn. I heard 0083 was exhaustive and boring, so I'm going to skip that for now.

It's not necessary to watch anime (real).

Don't think that CCA is actually good.

Its important to the Gundam metaverse.

ZZ is better than Zeta though. The only bad part is Moon Moon, which is 2 episodes.

>>15872619
Moon Moon is the best, it has Captain Bright vs the Space Aztecs, it's so fucking dumb!

Up to you to skip 0083, but the Gundam Prototypes in there are sexy as they can get

Dropped it after the first episode, it was literally a recap followed by toy advertisements followed by a clip show of events that hadn't been shown yet.

It's not even anime
>>
ZZ is great. I share the sentiment, though. The beginning is FUCKING SHIT compared to Zeta. With the fucking toy ads and humor. They get their shit together eventually, though. Takes a while, but just deal with it.

ZZ is my favorite UC gundam series like this anon said >>15872621 it's dumb, but brilliantly dumb, and a lot of fun. Just don't take it too seriously, and don't go in expecting more of Zeta.

To answer the question though, you really don't need to watch ZZ before Char's Counterattack. In fact, I always saw CCA as more of a direct sequel to 0079 than anything; the Char in CCA doesn't really make sense when compared to the Char in Zeta.

ZZ is unironically better than CCA but you don't need to watch it if you don't want to.

This. Also, you can skip most of the filler, just watch this:

2
7-13
16-23
27-28
32-38
42-47

OP here. I HAVE A MAN'S NAME aside, this series really made me appreciate Kamille as a protagonist more. I'm only on episode 11, but Judau is just annoying at this point. Though, now that they've just gotten into the space the show is starting to grow on me. I can never get enough HAMAN-SAMA from Mashmyre.

No, but CCA is worse.

I don't think Unicorn references the OVAs at all, but they're much better than it is so watch them instead.

>>15872345
Watch the Zeta movies, then you can watch CCA.

Or if you need to trudge through ZZ. All you need to know is Neo-Zeon self destructs and everyone who was introduced in ZZ fucks off and never returns except for a single clone who has over 300 abortions.

No. It's a good series, though. The wacky pretty much stops around episode 11 or so, when they leave Shangrila. Personally I just think there's something wrong with the air in that colony that makes everyone act high as fuck. It becomes a normal Gundam show after that.
There is one other short arc (two episodes, i think) on a really old colony called Moon Moon that has inexplicable space aztecs and identical princesses and is more or less the prototype for the story ideas of Turn A and G-Reco, but other than that it's a normal Gundam show after they leave Shangrila.
