so who here is a gundam fan? im a pretty big gundam fan my self.

my favorite gundam shows have to be 08th ms team
gundam wing
079 gundam

but those are the only ones ive been able to see.

cartoon network is showing gundam seed, and i really like it so far.

Gundam Wing was pretty damn good. For some reason, I wasn't a big old school Gundam fan, but that's probably because I didn't give it a chance. I did enjoy Char's Counter Attack, though. Gundam Seed is really good so far, and I only expect it to get better.

Now, which Gundam Wing are we talking about? The Cartoon Network version, or the Japanese version?

A couple years back I was addicted to Gundam models. You know, those little plastic snap together ones. The American kits SUCKED. Parts woulden't line up right, the stickers fell off (I tended to paint them though...). The SD kits were freaking awesome though...

They Japanese even got 1/16 scale kits of Zaku's and Wing Zero. Those are really cool kits... the Wing Zero has individual feathers, and the Zaku has electronics in it's head, so you can make it's eye light up.

Both versions were good. They cut a few things, such as the blood streaming from Heero's head when he fell out of his Gundam, but I would've never noticed that change if I didn't watch the Japanese version. Hell, I didn't even watch that many Japanese episodes. Well, anyway. Yeah, both were good.

My favorite Gundam series is The Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket OVA. One of the best part about Gundam is the MODEL KITS.

WHAT THE F*CK!? GUNDAM SEED WAS ON AND NO ONE TOLD ME!?

05-23-2004, 12:30 PM
I thought you already knew! Man, it's a great show! Get to watching it, man!

Voltron
05-23-2004, 12:31 PM
I can't now! I'll be totally lost.

05-23-2004, 12:33 PM
Read a synopsis on the internet or something. You can't miss this, they may not show it a second time!

...Gundam? :-? What? I mean... I swear I've heard of it before... But what is it?

...Gundam? :-? What? I mean... I swear I've heard of it before... But what is it?

its a old anime that started in 1979, and is still going on.

its a story that takes place in the future, were people have been able to get man to live in space, but those who live in space are fed up with earths ways want freedom, so they declare war on earth.

well thats what must gundam storys are about.

Hell, I didn't even watch that many Japanese episodes. Well, anyway. Yeah, both were good. Actually, they changed quite a bit. If you pay attention to the characters, you REALLY notice it. They made Relina MUCH stronger than she was in the Jap. version of the show, and the list goes on.

05-23-2004, 02:45 PM
I see. Well, you can't hate Gundam. I mean, it's giant robots. You have to leave out the small details and realize the story and concept as a whole is really quite amazing. That's what I believe, anyway.

Raven

i really like the storys in gundam, but gundam wing was my favorite.
i just wish they would come out with a good gundam game.

My favourite would have to be Gundam Wing.
By the way, has any body ever played the Super Nintendo game "Gundam Wing - Endless duel"?
I beat my friends at that game all the time!

My favorite Gundam moment was when that robot blew up the other robot.

Do the robots even do anything? Everytime I've seen the show it's just a group on people sitting around in robots and whining.

Raven
05-24-2004, 02:20 PM
ya, they do lots of things.

05-24-2004, 02:20 PM

Raven
05-24-2004, 02:22 PM

Yes, they blow up other robots.

That Endless Waltz was pretty cool.

Raven

i love the animation in endless walt, its very well done.

gundam 083 has some nice animation as well.

Is that robotech any good? I think it's just a Gundam ripoff.

05-24-2004, 02:35 PM
Everything's a ripoff these days. And yes, Robotech is very good.

Raven
05-24-2004, 02:43 PM
robotech is not bad, but it reminds me more of tranformers, because of there suits changing.

Robotech is ten times better than Gundam, which is the most overated anime ever involving Mechas.

zarius please no gundam bashing, this is a thread to talk about your favorite gundam storys, not what you hate about.

Oh very well

(coughRobotech>Gundamcough)

Gundam Wing, I'm not really sure why I like this, maybye because it had a credible story, some great characters, the themes of warrior's code of honour, reluctant romance, espionauge...

It had a lot of elements that I can never find in any other Gundam show, it's still regarded as the greatest season.

What the hell was credible about flying psychic robots who blow up entire meteors, space stations, and space colonies without thinking twice about it?

You're neglecting the traumas those young soildiers went through, Hereo was a teenage assasin who was screwed up in the head, two of them were openly gay, Duo was the only sane one.

The Politics played a larger role in this series than any other as well, it was a great balance alongside the romance and the action.

And it's my OPINION, I don't hunt you down for saying your favourate Gundam seasons suck, which happens to be around 95% of the time.
