imagine this… people complain about the quality of animation from something that is 30+ years old. On the flip side, should they remake movies that had the same impact on people because there has been advancements in cinematography? Gone with the Wind? Apocalypse Now? The Godfather I/II? Taxi Driver? Raging Bull? Seven Samurai? Yojimbo? Samurai I/II/III? No, they shouldn’t. These movies, along with animation, are considered art to more people than the people that would like to remake them. I for one would be very unhappy with changing the starting place of the stories, art wise. It would cheapening the effect of being able to watch the evolution of animation, all contained in the same universe. Which in my mind, Gundam has always been very good at conveying these transitions, without being to in your face about it G-Gundam not included
and if you are watching the series strictly for the animation, then you are missing the real point of the series to begin with.
