Wing X, and 00 after
DO NOT WATCH SEED OR SEED DESTINY they are insults and a disgrace to the 30 years of greatness


SEED and DESTINY WHERE THE BEST ONES, WATCH THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



i have and they are nothing but a SHITTY RIP OFF of the original and Zeta.
the only original idea from them is Battery Powered gundams


it's more updated, more variety in characters, quality in quantity, better plots, more exiting to watch and more in this generation, but everyone has there own opinion


and most the Characters are the same. the Characters are written horribly Kira Being a Failed Try at Amuro and Shinn( the only good thing about GSD) getting shafted for the lead was a even more whinny Kamile. the relationships are unbelievable Kira and Lacus so no feelings and barely speak to each other.
it doesnt have better anything. the repeated use of stock footage over and over is not better it lazy


and worst of all twice Kira should have died the 1st time ok he was them main character but the 2nd he was backseat to Shinn then all back story from 25eps got toss out the window.
non of the grund bothered to use the most basic tactics of moving when shot at

all it has is newer animation that is nothing more then eye candy

There are many criteria for if you want to start with something.

If you want to start by chronology, try Mobile Suit Gundam first, same goes if you want all the psychological and political tracking that Tomino intended. If you want to start with something action-y, try G Gundam first. If you want to start where the bishounen started showing up, try Gundam Wing first. If you want something which focuses more on the characters than the mecha, try Turn A Gundam first. If you want to go for just the newer graphics, then you could go with SEED or 00 first.

There's a lot of go-betweens but it's worth even checking them out first. The polls at dannychoo.com said that 08th M.S. Team is still the best by far, so that could also be a good first option.

P.S. In regards to SEED, I feel sad for the GINNs and the Ace Pilots' awesome creds... so sad...

I don't have a link supporting the certain series.
As far as I know, the series can now be only watched through DVD's and such. It's old, so expecting a classic series like this in the interwebs would be harder than you think. D:
Sorry.

There were a lot of pretty colors in Turn A, just like in that party with "Laura". I think it's more a matter of doing it right, which Fukuda didn't.

I mean, you heard that Shinn and Luna were (by word of god) the only characters in the series to be truly in love? Or that the Three Ships Alliance were the antagonists?

Hell, it was all done better in Turn A. Dianna and Kihel switching was a lot better done than Lacus and Meer.

start off with gundan wing -- it's got an ova Endless Waltz.
Then gundam seed and gundam seed destiny and then the films
Then gundam 00

You can also watch g gundam though it's one of the older ones -- more like gundam fights that actual plot but there is a plot (however slim) and it's ok if you want to watch something light

gundam X is also entertaining -- you should watch that too

I found turn A gundam a little boring but that could be just me. Give it a try --

the only series i didn't really care for was G gundam. I got tired of it after the 6-8 episodes. The rest were pretty good, especially Gundam Wing

That was one of the few instances of intelligence shown by the characters, the other situations had them be idiots.

At least 00 is turning out better, even if it's so obviously AEUG/Karaba vs. Titans right now. And Lockon Stratos I stayed dead in all his manliness.
