What ones have you watched so far, and what kind of Gundam are you in the mood for now?

Out of all the ones on the list, G Gundam and X are my two favrioutes, I'd say go with G-Gundam. And don't be fooled when people call it a "DBZ Copy" Its a fresh take on Gundam.

I recommend you watch 08th MS Team next (I voted for it), then 0080, then 0083, then read Gundam Sentinel, and then watch Gundam ZZ.

After that, then go back and read HDA, CDA, and Ecole du Ciel.

Well yes, but I'm basically just saying, you may as well just start with 08th MS Team, and finish the UC shows in that order, rather than hopping around between universes. ^^;;

I don't know, I covered Z Gundam in less than three days (not one after the other mind you). As for my recommendation, since you just got off the One Year War and main UC Gundam storyline, I recommend X. Of all the AUs, it's the only "true" Alternate Universe, since it offers a different outcome to the One Year War-theme.

Well, you more or less managed to get the core series of the Universal Century in MSG, Zeta, and CCA. Victory is a series you can safely watch alone at anytime since it's many years removed from the early UC era. 8th MS Team along with 0080 are pretty much stories on the side of the OYW. 0083 is a series I personally could care less since it's a rather lousy stop gap between the OYW and Zeta IMHO, although the mechas themselves certainly look awfully gorgeous. ;P And then you have ZZ... I suppose you'd watch ZZ for the completionist in you, but otherwise, it's not exactly all that necessary as far as I'm concerned.

I'd say flip a coin between Gundam X or G Gundam. If you managed to watch through the likes of TAG and its alternate take on Gundam, and if you happen to like fast hitting robot action, I'd certainly go with G Gundam. If you want something that is a little more 'traditional' though still a unique take on Gundam, go with Gundam X. Being cut short doesn't mean it's unwatchable by any stretch.

And needless grunting. G Gundam's a good show, though.

Yes, of course, anything that seems to have those listed, is always branded as a DBZ Rip off :roll:

I would HIGHLY recommend Gundam X; i just finished it up yesterday and it's incredible, if you give it a chance. The only problem is that the plot is slow and aimless until the last ten or so episodes--it's much more episodic than most Gundam shows, but the episodes within themselves are still enjoyable. Lots of action and the best Gundam characters IMO.

I would also recommend X. Short, but still a very good series.

Sums up what I think.

Seeing as you've seen those series thus far, you might want a break from the standard kid-becomes-Gundam-pilot plotline, so I recommend 08th MS Team.

V Gundam is considered the second best series after Zeta, but I'm a bit tired of the child prodigy pilots, and the reminder that people do die in war..
