For those who have seen the older gundam series what do you think about the Gundam 00 anime so far?

The main reason I'm asking this question is because I have the impression that long time gundam fans never seem to like the newer series. For instance, GS and GSD appear to be getting a lot of negative criticism from long time gundam fans so, being a new series, I was curious what they thought of this one so far. Does it feel new and different or just another rip-off of something you've seen before?

I've not watched previous Gundams b4 Gundam SEED, so i don't know how good it is. Despite the many true facts that GS and GSD seem to use alot of repetitive scenes again and again for their episodes. I think the new Gundam 00 is slick in terms of its new designs of mecha, you can see that they totally pawn all the other robots. Unfortunately, they let me down because of the ever confusing political theories which is hard for the public (not for me though since I understand world politics) and the other thing was that the latest episodes show how lame the Gundam pilots (or Meisters) are not very good when it comes to tactical actions. Also, being almost trashed by a group of HRL soldiers was enough to make me thing that the Gundams they have is not capable of wars in space. And their flagship is another lame thing without and defensive armory. All they have is a GN particle and they are at a standstill... So sry... Just my opinion ok? Don't take it too hard. ~.~

Hmm...I think Gundam 00 IS new and different because no gundams were hijacked
in episode 1(this happened in GS and GSD), no focusing on 1 main character(in GS it was Kira and a bit of Athrun and in GSD it was Athrun and Shinn), no battleship battles in nearly every single episode(GS and GSD) and lastly the storyline kicks all other gundam series.

This is just my opinion.

Gundam 00 is unique in its own way. It reminds me of Gundam Wing but, I wouldn't compare it to other series because every Gundam series has a different feeling and style and who cares if the person doesn't like or not. It all depends on the viewer's style but, to me I think Gundam 00 is by far the best Gundam series because it has a good storyline.

eversince gundam wing, i think they have their own level of being the best. i cant say G00 say it's the best but i have no reason to denied it's better than GW either. all i can say, becoz of they 'live' in different era, so i would say GW, GS+GSD & G00 is the best for their own era.
it's like exia is better than strike, but freedom is better than exia, until setsuna gets 'another exia alike' who knows it might be better than freedom.

At least the meisters have weaknesses unlike Kira who can evade everything like a god and have lame 'newtype' senses. Sumeragi's plans are good but Sergei found out and used a counter attack. I bet if he wasn't there the gundams would have a much easier time fighting.
Plus this era doesn't have coordinators. You can say all of them are like Naturals in C.E. The ships are obviously different i mean look at HRL's carrier it looks like crap.

Other than that i like U.C,A.C,GS(minus GSD),etc equally but I'll see if G00 can beat my favourite, 08MS

Well, the problem is now that I've never watched any older Gundams BEFORE Gundam SEED, thus my opinion of the classical Gundams are rather obstructed in my view. Yes, it was true that GS had a main character that seemed 'god-like' but he had his flaws and the others had their own flaws as well. Talking about the counter-plan of Sumeragi and the idea of eradicating war with 4 Gundams seem pretty obvious that the Celestial Being are pawning everybody on Earth (who are at war of course). Even in GS, and GSD, Kira didn't fight the whole war by himself, he had help from other people as well; except that in GSD he was piloting better already.

So, there goes my problem, I've never watched Wing(don't know where to find it either) or even the other Gundams. Please don't be hard on me. I'm just turning into a Gundam fan here... ^^,

ok, they gave up the masks, but I'm still wondering are they going to have a anti-hero, (who most people would call a villian) who can gather the respect, and devotion of all the world's soilder's like his excellency Treize Khushrenada, who looked for the beauty in man's battle.

lol Kira was fine in GS but in GSD, Fukuda screwed him up sooo much. You could start with Gundam Wing if you want you'll need to download them unfortunately http://realitylapse.com/videos/gundamwing.php
Wait that site.... you need to pay :/

I also noticed that there is no masked character but we're only on episode 10. This series will run close to 50 episodes so there is a lot of opportunity to introduce a masked character. It is probably better once they kill off certain characters and then bring in a masked character for some rumors and speculation.

^ yeah, something for us to look forward too.

I've yet to watch some of the older Gundam series and I think several of them can be watched here on CR so I might try them out when I have the time. But the ones I've seen so far are G-Gundam, Wing, GS, and GSD.

Based on how G00 is shaping up, I would have to say it is very good thus far but we're still early into the episodes and it's the long run that counts. I remember thinking that GSD started off very well and then that series started having a lot of recaps in many of their episodes which was highly unnecessary. I could have sworn they manged to fit the GS story into GSD.
