Post Reply Comparing Gundam 00 with the older Gundam Series
Posted 2/5/08
7 Gundams, yet the old and new pilots are quickly antagonizing each other.....

On a side note, who here wants Graham Aker(or Acre? O.o) to get a "Tallgeese-like" mobile suit? I do^^

Time to kick some Gundams of their "Thrones"!^^ Get it? get it?.... Ah, forget it....

I've watched most if not all of the gundam series, and hat off to the old school gundams, it was those show that got me hooks on anime. As well as the Macross/Robotech series. On that note Macross Frontier will be realeas in april along with code geas. Gundam Wing was the one that got my attention, and in my opinion it was one of the better one, simply because the politics and drama that was presented at the time.

I was really annoyed at the gundam seed series though. Beside Kira, the great battles, gundam models, and a few minor characters such as andrew walfield (however you spell his name), there wasn't much else to it. Half of seed was watching character cries cries and cries some more over dead relatives. Gundam seed just made even worst, with cagali talks about how she couldn't do anything, and the ending was just anti climatic.

So far the Gundam 00 has great characters development and the story line is pretty solid laced with intrigue. I want to know who designed vader, who are the leaders that are in charge of gundams. alot of whys, which I hope will be answer later on in the show. I hope the gundam pilots will have better gundams later on, but for now the story line is good enough for me to keep wanting to know what will happen next episode.

I'm a huge GS/D fan...when I first started watching Gundam 00 I didn't like it all, but as the story progressed and the plot thickened I really got hockek up to it!!I luv the plot..although I think that a lot of people may find it hard to follow..Anyway I still think that the characters need to be more charismatic , But I think The characters are starting to eveolove as we're getting to understand the background of each one of them..anyway,I think we can judge it once it's finished but anyway if it keeps getting better , I think it will be great..But so Far I can't compare it to GS/D because simply the only thing in common is the gundams and the Haro...other than that I feel like it's a totally different genra being more political and all!!!All in all I'm really into it and can't wait for the next episode!!!

She most likely does. In anycase Gundam 00, although a bit slow-placed, is shaping up quite nicely. It's got puts everything back into perspective on what Gundam should be, and although it's not like any UC era gundam series, it certainly stands as one of the best AU series out there. Which makes so far three (X and G). . .

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. ~.~


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... ^^,


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 :/


Agreed. (On the part about Kira being cool in GS but sucking in GSD. In fact, GSD sucked all together.)

Kira was cool in Seed. He was not god-like (had his Strike completel dismantled by Athrun, and got his Freedom nearly obliterated by Rau), and he didn't have the lame Newtype abilites.

Gundam Seed Desinty sucked. Gundam Seed was much better. Gundam 00 is okay. It has potential.

Gundam Wing was awesome, I didn't like G Gundam that much, and 08 was pretty cool. That's as far back as I have watched though..

Gundam 00 has a different story than the older gundams with exception of gundam wing(Sandrock kicked ass with those giant blades Deathscythe was awesome And Wing Zero One blast was all it took)which was slightly difference because in gundam wing the gundams were sent to wage a war on the opressors of the colonies Gundam 00 they're trying to eradicate wars

Gundam 00's story is getting unique as the story progresses, at first it looks like gundam wing. Then the true plan Aeolia Schenberg is not yet revealed. Celestial Being is manipulated by a spy.
The Tieren looks like a Zaku. The Flag looks like a Hambrabi.

I love gundam WING that was really cool and this new gundam series certainly is different with training jihists etc and the gundams are new. At first I didn't like the exia id 00 but after seeing its vast improvement through this series I love it now it is officially my second best next to hero's from endless waltz. I would to check zeta gundam and all the really old gundam I heard they are good. ^_^ I didn't like seed and destiny too much but they were good in the long run especially gundam wise. that is about it for now. ^_^

For me as look as the story line is good I will watch it as for the gundams to be honest the latest ones looks much more better than the old version of course since it their evolution. And I really love the evolution of the gundams in 00 GN particles are so cool it makes the gundams more powerful than ever!
