Did you not watch the 49 preceeding episodes of Wing? That might've helped. Although to be honest, without nostalgia goggles Wing can be a pretty shit series...

haven't seen the wing series just the Endless waltz part, I got a pretty good feel though for what went on in the series though.

Just finished Gundam SEED it's pretty good.

In response to Tarnsman's inquiry about not having a gundam thread.

EDIT: Oh looky, there's actually a thread!

Well it wasn't on the first page so it might as well have not existed. :tongue:

Anyway... why is the Reborns Gundam so stupid-sexy?

I've seen Gundam Wing, GW: Endless Waltz, and Gundam Seed. All of them were very BORING with a captial B! The newest series, Gundam AGE, actually looks promising. And I hear that G Gundam is supposed to be the odd duck in the franchise because it's so nutty and wacky. Sounds perfect for me! I'm thinking of finding a English copy and eventually buying it.
NGE was a damned good anime
EoE was an anime masterpiece
And Rebuild is nothing short of epic
Long live the EVAs!!

Breaking news: Encodergasm is releasing a new, scrubbed version of Victory Gundam. If you're planning to watch the show, wait until EG's release is completed.

I only really support the original.

And I am a Zeon fan.

Therefore, MS-IGLOO and all others that are related to the original, I like.

I still have not made my mind about Gundam UC though...

A blast from the past.

-On EMF, as a thread becomes longer, the likelihood that fem-Kaworu will be mentioned increases exponentially.
-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

You seriously expect me to like the Earth Federation in its incarnation in Gundam?

I mean, I managed to make 'Sieg Zeon' the official hello at my anime society. (However, I failed to make myself the Eternal President of the Anime Society and have my portrait hanging above the projector screen in our club room for all eternity. My first secretary who will become President among others found the idea distasteful.)

Earth Federation facts:
Globalisation bastards.
Amuro is a whiny idiot who is also hypocritical. Gets all sobby about war but has no qualms killing people himself.
Their uniform is rubbish.
The 'Gundam' has the aura of 'I am always correct because I have white blue and red as my primary colour'
Above statement applies to Earth Federation.
I know the whole point of the anime is to blurr the good and bad guys, but if the Earth Federation starts massacring people, they have dirtied the name.

Zeon has its bad points, but in my view, they more than make up for it with better looking gear, their zeal for independence and what not.

How I rank every gundam anime I've ever seen:

SEED Destiny/Final Plus > Victory > SEED > 00/A Wakening of The Trail Blazer > X > SEED Movie 3 > 0083/Afterglow of Zeon > Wing/Endless Waltz > SD Gaiden > G > Zeta Movie 3 > Original Movie 3 > Zeta Movie 2 > Zeta Series > Zeta Movie 1 > Original Series > 08th MS Team > Original Movie 2 > F91 > Double Zeta > Original Movie 1 > SD Brave Battle Warriors > SEED Movie 2 > MS IGLOO 2: The Gravity Front > Turn A Gundam > Evolve > MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 > Char's Counterattack > MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War > Gunpla Builders > SEED Movie 1 > SD Counterattack > SEED SUPERNOVA > 0080 > SD Mark 2 > SD Mark 1 > SEED Destiny: Stargazer > SD Mark 3 > SD Mark 4 > SEED After-Phase > Mission to Rise > Ring of Gundam > Perfect Mission > SEED Astray > All That Gundam

So this just leaves out the Turn A compilation dualogy, SD Gundam Mark 5, SD Gundam Force, and that's about it.

Ends:
-First two X

Good ending themes are quite rare for me.

@Imperialist

Zeon/Neo-Zeon Facts:
Space Nazis.
Char is a gigantic failure who still manages to lose to Amuro despite being in Zeon's best suit and Amuro being in an outdated piece of crap that can barely keep up with his skills.
Stopped being freedom fighters the second the Zabis took over.
Ugly as sin mobile armor designs that counter their cool grunt designs.
Even bigger mass murders than the Federation.
Space Nazis.
Utterly retarded war strategies.
Space Nazis.

I have heard of Space Nazi argument before, but there are a few things:

It is not a complete dictatorship. At its worst, it was a militarist Dutchy. I am a fervent monarchist, so I see no wrong in here. Even when the Zabis took over, they were still fighting for freedom. Just the leadership and the political structure changed.

I still prefer Zeon design than Federation.

Federation cannot, and SHOULD not commit mass murder. Once they do, the word 'Federation' is meaningless. Besides, the context of this mass murder is only in numbers. Zeon has much more to lose.

Retarded war strategies? Maybe. But then, they knew their bad points and were quite desperate from the start (which then leads to why start it again, but that is a stupid question if you are working towards independece- do or die)
