what i wanna know is when gundam changed

when it first started off there was a lot more death and memorable moments and now it ...just doesnt seem to have it, i still remember when char blew lady Kycilias head off that was epic now it seems to be all about the animation and how many weapons a gundam can hold

Wing... it became all about pretty boys the Girls could have yaoi fantasies about. Despite the fact they were a merciless collection of terrorists.

Haha this is so true. The newer Gundam series so far have been disappointing, although I admit I havnt seen Unicorn yet but I'm not holding much hope.

For me, Gundam ended with Seed/Destiny.

Mobile Suit Gundam was by far the best in the series IMO.

Now gundam is all about pretty boys with major dose of angst on them.
Also chicks with huge boobs.

I miss the day where characters drop like flies and mobile suits wrecked beyond recognition and still fight!

personally i thought wing gundam was great ....was it the first of its kind?....u know were the hero(protagonist) is actually trained from a young age to know how to fight and control a giant robot ..unlike the other ones who followed a great plot of a kid being thrown in a suit and "somehow just knowing" how to use it ...it was cool the first time its old now i think

The current Gundam trend

-anorexic bishies with generic shoujo personalities
-loli girls
-main characters having Gundams that are OVER NINE THOUSANDS
-insanely one sided curbstomping on cannon fodder
-pew pew pew
-taste the rainbow
-Plot armor powered by the Gods
-Astral projection (aka misty nudity)
-Introducing as many characters as possible and only 10-20% of them have actual character development

I think it's just that it has a bunch of spin-offs. It's a series that has multiple stories in it... instead of designing new giant robots, they keep the same basic principal in the robot design, and change the story drastically.

After all, Gundam was never about the story, it was about the giant robots!

Originally, Gundam is a plot oriented anime geared toward a more realistic sci-fi animated series... Current Gundam series nowadays are nothing more than a cash cow to the producers.

How I miss the days when the story plot and character development are more important than the artstyle and fanservice.
