Those lucky Japanese... again.

A 3 day gundam marathon? I’d like to buy a plane ticket please!

Eh, I think I could replicate that list (minus IGLOO and swapping the 0083 series in instead of that crappy compilation of it).

Not all of us are able to get a copy of all those shows. :stuck_out_tongue: Besides… I’m always drawn to tv marathons even if I already have the dvds.

No copies here. Only original Bandai DVDs/Blu-Rays. :smiley:

That’s what I mean. :stuck_out_tongue: Not copies as in rips or anything.

I figured as much; I just wanted my meaning to be clear, since some people on this forum seem to think that rips are acceptable if one cannot afford to buy the DVDs; such people are criminals and should be reminded of it.

I would hope you are not referring to me, cause we cleared that up a long time ago. As for the japanese. Yes. Lucky, lucky, lucky. I would love to have a 3 day gundam marathon here.

I’m not. They know who they are (I can think of at least 2, maybe 3, members off the top of my head who have admitted to illegal downloads).

Torrenting is almost commonplace now. I turn a blind eye to it, and just generally don’t care.

However, that is upsetting that they are getting a huge 72 hour marathon. I can only ever remember toonami ever playing G gundam and Wing, and now 00 is on Sy-Fy, and Turn A is coming out later, but I wish they would just play them all over again. I wish they would just bring toonami itself back (but not play Big O, that show was horrific). I just miss Tom and Giant Robot Week on Toonami.

“Bang!”

Toonami was the best thing to happen to after-school television. It’s where I first met Gundam… haha.
It’d be nice if one day they could air Gundam on a weekly basis again. (I know they did 00 and Seed… but I want them all! :P)

I didn’t know they aired SEED O~o!? Shows how much I payed attention.

I’m actually watching SEED right now along with Turn A. I watched the Astray side story before actually watching SEED. Watched Stargazer too. Oh man. I’m all out of loop.

They aired a heavily-edited version on cartoon network. :stuck_out_tongue:
I remember flipping through the channels and accidentally stumbling upon the first episode they aired. I freaked. haha.

Oh dear bald-headed wizard… I remember that hack job. It (combine with the lackluster first third of the show) turned me off of SEED for the longest time. What a disgraceful end for Gundam on Toonami.

Agreed. I watched a few episodes and I was like “This? This is not Gundam.”
I had grown up watching Wing, (which got me into gundam) and I thought it was the best series ever, as I had not yet known about Universal Century or anything else at that time, and I saw SEED on Toonami and thought it was awful, more so than G-Gundam. (I hated G-Gundam so much, I still do)

What’s with the G Gundam hate? You do know that it is intended to be a parody (for lack of a better word) of everything Universal Century Gundam was, right? (It was the first AU, the first Gundam show developed after Bandai bought Sunrise, and the 15th anniversary series).
I’m not saying that you have to like it; I’m just pointing out that it was never intended to be a traditional Gundam show.

I actually didn’t know it was supposed to be a parody, but regardless, I still hate it. There were all of three MS designs I liked, and those were Shining, God, and Shadow/Speigle Gundams. I hated EVERY character, hated every aspect of the story, and well…just hated. Pure dang nasty herpaderp hatred.

Now, hold up a bit. I can understand not liking G-Gundam; I don’t like it. But you can only find THREE suits you liked?! C’mon, even a jaded UC’er or hopelessly devoted SEEDling or Wing-nut can scrape up more than Mobie Fighters to appreciate. :wink:

I’m fond of the Rose and Master Gundams myself.

God was amazing
Shining was cool, not better than God/Burning
Master Gundam was a beast
Shadow is pretty sweet
Pharoh looks cool
Rose wasn’t bad
Nobel was amazing, can actually make a feminine suit
Magnat, those shoulders!
Rising Gundam
nobusshi suit was awesome
Devil Gundam, for the sheer amount of detail in that

aaaaand the shuffle alliance card bit was nice too.

Domon ftw.

I loved God, Devil, Spiegal, Shining, Rising, and Nobel. I think Shining > God, myself.
