So, I finished watching the original Mobile Suit Gundam show yesterday. It was a genuinely fantastic show, but today, rather than watching 0083 and Zeta, I chose instead to watch Char’s Counterattack (the film sequel to Gundam and Zeta) and will later watch Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 1 (the OVA cut, ofc).
I honestly feel that once you get the original show out of the way, it’s basically “choose what you want” when it comes to whatever you’ll watch next. Oh, I WILL watch 0083 and Zeta, but I was just in the mood to see how Char and Amuro’s story ended knowing that Zeta played a part in why Char acts the way he does in that movie, that and to see a Mobile Suit with a Unicorn horn toss a green one around like a ragdoll.
I don’t know if others in the fandom agree with this perspective, considering I only became a casual fan last year. Does anyone here agree with me?
