I've noticed over the last couple months that several older Gundam series have popped up on Crunchyroll, and its awesome!

Hopefully this will continue, however I've come to wonder if we'll also see newer series on CR such as 'Build Fighters Try' (a prequel to the current 2 seasons available) and 'Reconguista in G' which is a pain to find online in decent quality or a decently priced purchase.

What are your thoughts? What Gundam series do you hope comes up next?

Build Fighters Try is the second season. There's no prequel.

I don't know if you've seen Reconguista in G, but it's not worth it. I'd rather see CR direct their energy and money towards any other Gundam series. Even something as bad as SEED Destiny would be better.

Whoops, you caught my error there, I totally fudged the name. I've got several dozen Gundam things swirling around in my brain right now between the series, Gunpla, and the games.

I meant the 'Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G' series, its short and only 3 episodes. To my knowledge it precedes the Build Fighters seasons.

Also no, I haven't seen Reconguista in G but I want to, good or bad. Mobile Fighter G Gundam was a bad Gundam series but still great which might just be the nostalgia talking, though i did just finish it again recently.

I'd personally like to see all Gundam series available. The more anime CR brings around the better.

I imagine that the original and Zeta are probably on the priority list for the next two shows, since Zeta is held in high regard. Then probably SEED or Turn A.

Personally, I really hope they put Gundam: The 08th MS Team on here. Still probably my favorite installment out of all the ones I've seen. Not sure it's possible since it was an OVA series originally.

I wouldn't rule it out, as it is available on Hulu.

Oh, 08th MS Team or AGE would be nice. I really kinda want to see AGE after seeing the crazy designs from the available Gunpla kits currently available. Seems like a really oddball, off the wall series that doesn't quite conform to the other 'in-universe' Gundam series (compared to Build Fighter which would be an 'out of universe' series where Gundams aren't real) that could provide some enjoyment.

SEED and SEED Destiny are currently on Daisuki. But yeah, there's been a lot of Gundam titles showing up lately. Can't complain though

I would love if they could get the original 1979 Gundam and Zeta.

Seed (the remaster version, of course) is also on Hulu, although Seed Destiny is not (yet):

Also, for those without a Hulu subscription, like many titles on Hulu, it is also available for free on Yahoo View:

I was so excited to see these pop up! My husband and I just finished Gundam Unicorn and that's made us want to revisit all the Gundam series we can find. We're currently marathoning 08th MS Team on DVD, and I've started G Gundam on my own (mostly out of morbid curiosity. My husband won't go near that one. xD). The ones offered on CR seem to be a random smattering, but I don't mind them one bit!
