The Gundam |OT| Destiny is something we all have to deal with

Checked out the Gundam Base at Odaiba the other day.

I miss Gundam Front. Gundam Base just seems like a massive gunpla commercial.
That's essentially what it is lol. It's a gunpla shop. So if your not into it, it is kinda a waste to visit it. Though they do display the insane gunpla competition winners after that happens which is cool. Not sure when they go up / get taken down.

I'm 13 episodes into ZZ and....I like it?

The tone is definitely lighter than Zeta, but it's nowhere near as silly as word of mouth led me to expect. More importantly, it has a likeable cast of characters with defined relationships and clear (if sometimes goofy) motivations.

It's also got an extremely 80s anime-ass aesthetic that I'm currently digging.

I am about that far in and I like it as well. However it is that goofy, imo. Mashmeyer Cello is a total buttwhit villain who shows up JUST to be bamboozled. Chara is... something else, that's for sure. lol

It's fun! I'm glad I had expectations managed before jumping in.

ZZ is weird, but it's still a pretty fun show. Chara is fucking crazy, Mashymyr wants Haman to step on him.

ZZ still has my favorite main cast of any Gundam show. They’re just a blast to watch in a way that no other main group in the series is, especially Judau and Roux.

Peak Bright too old for this shit is in ZZ. By Char's Counterattack he's back to normal but he can't even be bothered to discipline these kids who are running wild.

So much lack of detail in the art of CCA:BC's final volume. It's primarily when the mecha are far away. Mesta (Nanai) trying to rationalize loving a monster when she feels Char die. lol

Do you also have the final volume of CCA? If you do, can you tell me what happens to Hi Nu Gundam ?

If you are enjoying it now I cannot wait till you reach the 2nd half of the show when things start to get real.

Hey everyone. Since getting into Gunpla recently, I have been meaning to check out the anime as well. I watched the first four episode of 0079 yesterday and I'm liking it more than I thought. The animations are a bit "stiff" here and there, but the drawing are pretty great, as well as the story and characters. I'm quite excited to continue watching.

Is gundam nt the same story as operation Phenex hunt or is gundam nt a sequel of operation pjenex hunt at the same year?
I believe they're different operations since NT is noted to take place in 0097

Universal Century 0096. Shortly before the final battle between the Nahal Argama and the Neo Zeon, a certain Federation squadron was dispatched on a secret mission. Their objective: the capture of the missing Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 “Phenex” that had gone missing since a freak accident six months ago. The operation was called “Phoenix Hunting”…
However NT may show us that story as it looks to make use of the characters pasts for the story.

Full version of the NT theme "narrative" is up on Youtube. Get a listen in before it goes down.


And reposting the last preview in case anyone missed it and to get that hype going.

Bruhhhhh. This is one of the first Universal Century things I get to be hyped for before it comes out. I hadn't seen Thunderbolt 1 yet when 2 was coming out and Twilight Axis wasn't a whole lot to chew on. Too bad I don't have access to a Japanese movie theatre.

Imagine having enough free time to rewatch anime.
I think I've only rewatched these and it was only once: MSG, Zeta, CCA and Unicorn.
It's true that I've rewatched parts or single episodes of stuff but that was only to get references when building gunpla.

Who lit the DTL-signal?

Now seriously, to me it is worth a watch as long as you are aware that it seems to be aimed at a younger audience and mecha design is very so-so.

It is just middling.

So, about that AGE II Magnum Master Grades (LOL Rikku) what other Gundam series have had the protagonist be left behind by someone from the supporting cast when it comes to getting a Master Grade released?
I'm thinking War in the Pocket but that's mainly because a Gundam getting an MG is much more likely than any other MS and Alfred doesn't even pilot anything. We still got Gundam Alex and Kämpfer while there's no Zaku II Kai.

Yeah, I wasn't looking for those that have zero MG. Otherwise we would have stuff like G-Saviour, Build Fighters Try, Gunpla Builders, Reconguista and IBO without even considering smaller stuff like Battlogue or Twilight Axis.
I'm uncertain whether there are IGLOO MG (P-Bandai or not).

I mean, seeing the Gunpla painting competition stuff was neat, but it got pretty boring fast. I liked how Gundam Front had art exhibits, stuff you could sit in and the G Dome with exclusive animated shorts.
