    Another series like G Gundam

    So I've been thinking about G Gundam a lot lately (being my first anime ever) and the thought of another series in a similar vein could be pretty damn awesome. I'm not talking including all the stereotypes and stuff that G Gundam had, but a Gundam where martial arts and fist fighting are the way they fight. I feel like they may have played it out to the fullest in G Gundam but I can't deny the appeal it had to me as kid. I'm not sure how y'all feel about this idea but it has a certain appeal to me (could be the nostalgia speaking). Agree or disagree, either is fine, just wondering what your thoughts on this would be.

    Re: Another series like G Gundam

    I see G-Gundam as a stepping block for the Gundam Build Fighters. Without G-Gundam and the way they had it set up as tournaments it gave rise to shows like build fighters. You have to fight to win your round to move on to the next and so on. So in a way without G-Gundam we might have never gotten build fighters.

    True, but even then we only got that hand to hand combat with the Build Burning Gundam in Build Fighter Try (and a nice Domon Kasshu cameo). I want another series to capture the same concept of hand to hand fighting that G Gundam did.

    I don't think there will ever a series like G Gundam... not unless Bandai can find someone like Yasuhira Imagawa to direct it and Fuyunori Gobu to write a script. It was because of those two that G was even possible.

    ah... the G gundam.. that takes me back. It is one of my favour gundam series. To be honest I really hope they can bring something back in an OVA or a movie sequel. I also hope that God, master and evil gundam can get a make over maybe a ver ka version would be nice.

    That would be so EPIC!! I would love to see a 2.0 of those kits, but sadly I don't think Bandai thinks that they are worth the trouble that they would have to put into them for the return that they might get. It would be nice though.

    It's just kinda disappointing that they probably won't ever revisit this concept for another Gundam series.

    yeah.. I believe I would buy a ver ka or 2.0 version of them over providence (for example) anytime.

    Good thing I only said probably won't ever then, right? I still have hope that they will. Much like how I hope they'll revisit Build Fighters in the future.

    Re: Another series like G Gundam

    See i told you about him. That sea cow is a tricky one, yes he is! Yes very tricky, but correct. I would like to see maybe a prequel type show. They did say that the tournaments have been going on for a few years how about the early fights or like how it all started. The early versions of the fighting Gundams. That could have potential.

    Pardon me, but f*** that.

    I want a G Gundam prequel where it's the manga about Master Asia when he's Japan's Gundam Fighter. That shit sounds awesome just based off the small blurbs on the gundam wiki.

    Dude, exactly, if there was going to be a prequel to G Gundam I'd want it follow Master Asia. That's something that I could easily get behind and binge watch.

    Master Asia was the MC too, who wouldn't watch a show with him as the MC?

    Totally agree with that. A Master Asia story line would be so cool.
