Okay so i just finished the Seed destiny series and was kind of shocked that Shinn didnt get killed somehow. Anyways, what series whould i watch next?
I've done Wing, G, Seed, Seed D, and both 00 seasons. So what now?

Watch the original MSG. Don't let the derpy animation get to you, it's a great story. From there, watch 0080, then 0083, then Zeta, then Char's Counter Attack. (Double Zeta isn't necessary to watch, nor is it really worth the time. Get's slightly better halfway through, but still meh.) Then follow up with Unicorn. Seriously the UC Timeline is pretty awesome.

Pretty much exactly what GNZ said. Adding F91 after Unicorn wouldn't be a bad idea either. Ditto for 08th MS Team between MSG and 0080. Additionally, if you want just the core saga, it's MSG-Zeta-CCA (and I'd through unicorn in as well).

GNzaku0023

Ah crap. Why do I keep forgetting things tonight?
Yes, watch 8th Team. It's so flippin phenomenal.
F91 was alright, I didn't care for it too much, but it wasn't bad.

F91 has a good story at its core, but due to behind the scenes crap, it basically plays out like a compilation movie of the series that never was.

To save you some time you can watch the movie compilations of MSG. There's 3 of them.

Couldn't have put it better. Honestly I'd like to see a series for F91, I think it would've done much better. (Also silently hopes for crossbone to become a series)

Zeta-G
August 13, 2011, 12:55 AM
I'd take them 00 style even (S1 would be F91, S2 would be XBone)

08th MS Team is by far my favorite of the Gundam Series but in order to understand what's going on, you need to watch the original as well as all the others mentioned. I'd also throw Gundam X in the mixture as well.

Zeta-G
August 13, 2011, 1:20 AM
Turn A will also be released sometime this fall in the states. Also, last time I checked, crunchyroll.com still has MSG and Zeta available for free, 100% legal, streaming.

*bitches about Bandai Entertainment not having licensed X, Victory, or ZZ yet*

Ok this will take some time seeing how school starts monday. umm im pretty sure i remember most of MSG from when i was a kid but ill still watch it

I'd say you have a lot on your plate now. I vouch for watching UC. After watching MSG or the movies though, I'd go back a step and watch IGlOO and IGLOO 2. It's a great back story to the one year war, and some of the best mobile suits are in it.

Yeah, MSG trilogy is good enough if you're pressed for time. I always, always, always suggest Zeta Gundam. But it is long.

Agrees. Also @ Drake 2411, if you Do watch all of the UC Series Start with MSG, 08thMS team, 0080, 0083, Zeta, CCA, Unicorn, and then F91 in that order. Trust me when you do that, the whole universe makes sense. If they were to Release ZZ and Victory it would make even more sense. Grrrrr.
And yes i wish they and especially X were released. God i wish i could drop a colony on them, but sadly if i did that no more Gundam :C

Drake2411
August 13, 2011, 12:06 PM
Where can i find MSG movies at the website i use doesnt have them!!

Kenico
August 13, 2011, 12:27 PM
at the source itself, Bandai.com its a little pricey at times (bandai), but believe me its worth it.

Drake2411
August 13, 2011, 1:03 PM
Well I'm going to start watching the series soon and I'm really excited to watch it.

Drake2411
August 13, 2011, 2:52 PM
funny i remember most the gundams from video games or from the action figures i had of them

Kenico
August 13, 2011, 3:03 PM
I used to like the action figures untill i got my hands on a MG NT-1 Alex.

Don't use or link to bootleg sites.

Bandai (http://store.Bandai-ent.com), Anime Nation (http://animenation.com), and Right Stuf International (http://rightstuf.com) are all legitimate retailers. Use one of them.

Im really liking the 08th team so far

Zeta-G
August 13, 2011, 4:20 PM
except yall pay for the stuff and i watch it for free :) with a few clauses about time.

See note about piracy, in that case.

As an aside, it really irks me when people pirate the stuff. It reduces sales, so Bandai is given less of an incentive to bring the old stuff over, which hurts the legitimate fans, like me. Real fans either buy the DVDs or use legal streaming sites (crunchyroll, ANN) to get their Gundam anime fix.

Zeta-G
August 13, 2011, 4:50 PM
Id rather pay for it than be called a pirate! lol ARGGG

Actually, I shouldn't call it pirating, because it's not. It's theft, pure and simple.

just finished 08th moving on to 0080

Kenico
August 14, 2011, 5:40 AM
Good luck man, when episode 4 comes to your eyes the last scenes in the episode is really gonna be worth watching the first 3 and the rest.

i hope so cause 0080 seems lame so far

When it wraps up you'll like it. It's kind of a sad story in a sense, and to a degree tragic, but it's so well done at the end.

I second this. That and there are so many amazing MS in 0080. Hy-gogg and Kampfer being the big ones.

im on 0083 now all these are short so ill be on z before soon

GNzaku0023
August 15, 2011, 1:04 AM
What were your final thoughts on 0080? Btw, all the rage at frikken Nina Purpleton. You'll see why soon enough.

Kenico
August 15, 2011, 1:16 AM
I trust the Scene where Kampfer gets completely shredded by the Alex was awesome for you. btw: the Alex is one of two of my personal favorite designs so far, so much so that....never mind. anyway have a great time with 0083 and the scene towards the end involving the bad guy gundam playing its pivotal role, wil REALLY be satisfying.

Drake2411
August 15, 2011, 4:50 PM
the bad guy gundam was on of my favorite gundams as a kid because of the big shield he has

Zeta
August 15, 2011, 4:53 PM
You mean GP02A Physalis. Yeah that big shield will come in handy later in the series. For you, the Nightmare will return.

done with 0083 on to z!!

Zeta-G

Brace yourself for awesomeness in that case. Many people (including myself) consider Zeta to be the best TV series (if not overall entry) in all of Gundam.

Drake2411
August 17, 2011, 6:18 PM
out of all the ms teams i like 08 the best

i like the first 2 ep's of z so far

ok zeta is really good so far

Drake2411
August 22, 2011, 7:55 PM
ok i decided to finish the third episode of UC and UC is really good so far

Bright will be in Episode 4 (November can't come soon enough). :)

You did watch CCA between Zeta and UC right?

Drake2411
August 22, 2011, 10:21 PM
no i had already watched the other 2 before zeta and just decided to finish it because there's only 3. Also im on ep 6 of zeta out of 50 so it'll be awhile with school back in now

Kenico
August 22, 2011, 10:46 PM
Take your time young Grasshopper. absorb the awesomeness of the Zeta Chronicles. lol

Watch Unicorn again after you've finished Zeta and CCA (and read summaries of ZZ while you're at it; MAHQ's reviews are a good source); there are parts of UC that will make better sense that way (UC loves to throw in references to past series set in the Universal Century; it even tosses in a bit of setup for F91's era).

I pretty much agree with GNZ's post on the first page, except I'd watch ZZ, well only if you want to see that Happens to some things after Z.

Well House arrest enforced on you by a fascist feddie government dose that to you. Anyhow he's not like that for long in it.

The house arrest wasn’t official but the government was watching his every move and everything. (The feddies feared Newtypes.
