I assure you, the headache I get from trying to make sense out of that jumble of letters, which you try to pass off as "English", is far greater than any headache you may get from my relatively coherent writings. In fact, I dare say that your headache is the result of your intellect desperately trying to gain a few IQ points and miserably failing to do so.

I'm sorry, but anyone who types/writes as badly as you, could not possibly have the faculties necessary for their opinion to have any real weight or actual meaning. At least, in my humble opinion. Particularly, because it is almost impossible to understand just what, exactly, that opinion actually is. Something about kids being happy?

That said, myself and the folks at Penny Arcade would like to introduce you to a friend of ours. His name is Mr. Period. He should make my writings a lot simpler to understand, ok? He'll make yours easier for the rest of us to understand too! Why don't you go ahead and meet him? :

First of all, no, the theme of Gundam is not the same as Macross. It's not even close. Macross has giant aliens trying to take over earth, Gundam... has no aliens at all! Nor does it use a space technology developed from a starship that crashed on earth! Good job on that one! You've really demonstrated a great deal of knowledge there to be making generalizations on all of the Gundam series now haven't you!

Have you ever seen the original Gundam or perhaps the Zeta series? No, you haven't. I already know that, because other wise you wouldn't be making generalized and outright dumb ass statements like, "They're all the same". I mean, hell, look at G. Are you going to seriously say with a straight face that G was "the same" as Zeta?


I said theme, not setting. Macross messages is that war is bad and so is Gundam's. And no I haven't seen Zeta and G is a piece of shit.


Really? They're not mecha anime hmm? Well then, by that definition, there isn't any mecha anime in existence. I'd like you to name even one! Let's look at some of our popular giant robot anime through your rose colored glasses shall we?


I never said they aren't Mecha anime. I just said they are not really about Mecha. With Eva as an exception the other two's mecha don't really play that of an important role in the anime. The mecha is just used as a backdrop and setting. Sousuke and Hikaru can be jet pilots and it wouldn't affect the story.

This can be said about Gundam you say? It can but Bandai uses the Gundams themselves as selling points. Too much emphasis has been put into the Gundams themselves. How? I am sure half the fans of Gundam are waiting to see the new design for the lead's Gundam, the forever blue, red and gold gundam, instead of the story line. Which is usually the same. Space Colony vs Earth.

Actually, I'm a big fan of anime in general, although I certainly like the mecha genre as well, among many other genres. Oh and it seems Mr. Period has done his job well, at the least, he's helped make your posts some what legible, though it looks like he has a long ways to go. Keep on workin' at it! I appreciate you making your post relatively understandable, despite the horrendous grammar. Oh and thank you for the recommendation, I'll be sure to check that series out.

Might I point out that you might want to reiterate future comments about mecha anime and your feelings on it however. Now, from my observation, based on the series you recommended to me as well as the mecha anime you professed to liking, you may need to adjust your terminology. I could be wrong, but it seems to me, that you dislike "Realistic" Mecha anime, (the realistic is supposed to be in quotations.), NOT mecha anime in general. Examples would be UC and CE Gundam series, Macross and so on, where they center around war and stuffy guys in uniforms discussing their attack strategy on the bridge of their battleships.

YOU, seem to have a liking towards Super Robot Mecha anime, where the story is centered around giant robots with amazing, seemingly magical powers that single handedly face the forces of evil. Examples of super robot anime would be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan, GaoGaiGar, Getta Robo and The Big O. From the looks of it, this Code Geass you're recommending, is also a super robot anime, though perhaps with a "realistic mecha" spin on it.

Now, as for noodle here...

And here I thought that the original Gundam's message was that if man kind doesn't evolve, it would destroy itself. Gundam Wing's message perhaps, is that war is bad, but applying that to the original is in error. While it could theoretically fit, when one considers it's sequels, such as Zeta, you'll find that the series is quite plainly about human evolution (defined as the emergence of newtypes and the destruction of earth's eco system), not about "war is bad". (By original series, I mean any that take place in the Universal Century time line, none of that wing crap here folks)

That's not to say that the "anti war" concept couldn't be attributed to it, but it surely isn't the main focus/theme. Amuro's acid trips and the ending of Char's Counter Attack (Where Amuro stops the big hunk of rock from hitting earth with his newtype power) surely prove that. "War is bad" does however, apply quite well to Wing, SEED, etc. On a side note, G is an... acquired taste with both it's good points and it's horrendously bad points, so I will offer no argument there, because I can't blame you for feeling that way.

Please refrain from making generalized comments like "all of Gundam sucks", because you my dear, have never seen the Gundam series that matters. You have no grounds to talk smack about a series that you have not even seen or know anything about. Most real Gundam fans would agree, the latter series DO suck. These are the 'money grubbing' productions that you refer to. However, do not apply their stigmas and faults to their vastly superior predecessors, for it is a sorely misguided course of action.

Are you starting to notice why I'm pointing out that your comments are ignorant? Older Gundam series don't have half the emphasis on the mobile suits as current Gundam series do (at least, not in the way you're referring to them) and again, you go back to "new series", which has nothing to do with the original series that I have been championing this entire time. My issue was how generalized your statements were, especially with that "all" in there and implying they're "all" the same. It displays a great deal of ignorance.

^^^^ can't we all just stay on the topic? you know?
IF you like older gudam related recommandations then read this:

Myself, as a Gundam fan would obviously recommend:
series:
Gundam 08th MS Team- starts with prototype of RX-78-2,,if you don't wanna watch the whole series, then watch the movies. Contains character median character interactions.
Gundam Wing- not a big fan, but what the hell, new gundams, great plot. Boring movie....*cough* Endless Waltz *cough*.
TurnAGundam- love the story, but hated the mechanical designs. If you're already a fan
of the old Gundams, prepare for the ugliest gundam or White doll...*sigh* . ITs on CR.
Gudam
Gudam Seed& Destiny: Fresh concepts in Gundam series, very promising interactions among characters, except for Aruthran..., and watch it.
G Gundam- The one and only series that makes you go " I know kung-fu now", I highy recommend it if you hate long series of boringness wars and development.
Evangelion- though it is not a gundam series, the story lavish traditional anime production in the 90s, and be warned, it is both bloody and emotional.
One night stand type:
Gundam F91- I like the concept. It connects to the manga. Gundam X(not the after war one!!)
Zeta Gundam- Yes, i don't wanna waste time to watch 50 episodes of realistic ones, so i watch 3 of the movies!! 1.Heirs to the Stars, 2.Lovers, 3.Love is the pulse of the star. It basically covers the whole series with mixes of old and new animations.( Most likely, you won't be able to understand the guy who wears the lamest cloths,Char, and also Amuro. If you didn't have the chance to see 0079 series. Their flashbacks somehow helps.)

2005-2007: Sosei no Aquarion, Demonbane, GunXsword, zegapain, Eureka 7, Heroic age, Innocent venus, FMP( full metal panic)

Off-topic: My opinion is that it is YOUR interests in specific mecha series. So, please don't waste space for bashing arguments for other people's thoughts. Or Just start another hate thread,jeez.

Hmm, I suppose I'd agree with most of your list Crossbone, though SEED was obviously rushed and could of been significantly better. (Just don't watch the dub, ew) I didn't care for Turn A myself, sorry to say and the Gundam X that you refer to is AWESOME, After War however, is horrendous joke of an imitation that wishes it could compare.

As for the Zeta movies... well, I agree with you half way on those, since the series does drag a bit in the episode 10-30 range. But yes, in order to watch Zeta, you really should watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam first.

Wait! I just remember one Gundam I liked. I forgot the name of it but the setting was in a jungle. Google time.

Ah. 08th. That's the one

And Gundam X was made into an anime. It got cancelled because of shitty ratings. That's right....an anime got cancelled.

That, my dear, would be 08th MS Team. Congrats, you've seen a part of the original UC (Universal Century) Gundam series. (the good stuff I was talking about =P)

Oh and the Gundam X that was an anime is the really crappy one we were talking about "After War Gundam X", it's totally, TOTALLY different from what he's recommending.

I m also looking forward to Kishin Taisen Gigantic Formula. Because it reminds me of Zegapain that gaming would make a person talented and capable of controlling a gigantic machine. Since when could a teen operate a machine so expertise without provision from manuals and trainings? Anyway, its Anime, no logics are necessary.

Hmmm... I think that mech anime is a an acquired taste like anything... How about everyone respects everyones opionions. As for good mech anime for this year pick up Code Geass. As for older stuff go for stuff like Gundam(of course) Big O, Eureka Seven and Sosei no Aquarion are all goo and the last one has the best music besides Eureka Seven I think. All those have mech in them but they also have good story lines. For just mech fighting hmmm I don't know of any but I'm sure you could find some..WIKI it.
And to XCrossboneX your an idiot here a pic of the Gundam X dvd cover to match your lil manga cover
