Anyone know the sauce?
@JewishXenu, one of the Gundam series
@JewishXenu, Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory
@bigmaclevel3, correct sir!!
How you take the tone of the ending also depends on if you have seen Gundam Zeta as well (0083 was a prequel series to Zeta). Also, don’t get too attached to many people in Zeta.
@kles76, amazing how tomino’s mental health fluctuated between zeta and double zeta. Depressing and everyone was dying to happy go lucky group of friends fighting the cause
@megamanx181x, I have only watched a little bit of Double Zeta, but yeah, it’s such a major tone switch right at the beginning. Major apocalyptic battle at the end of Zeta. Next series, they are using oranges as weapons at the start.
@kles76, zeta was brutally honest but a bit too depressing, double zeta was just too corny for a powerful mobile suit. Then we got chars counterattack that put everything back in norm
@megamanx181x, And now followed up by Unicorn and NT. And later this year the Hathaway’s Flash trilogy. UC Gundam is by far my favorite of all the various series.
@kles76, you know the one thing I don’t like about the UC is the later years, particularly F91 and victory. I still don’t understand how the technology kind of down graded over time. It wasn’t as advance as everything that came before it.
@megamanx181x, I think they are exploring that a bit with the new series/movies. Psychoframes are just almost too crazy powerful. If not in Hathaway’s Flash, maybe in something later on they will show why the tech change. The suits do get smaller though by the time of F-91. It’s also a shame that they never were able to make F-91 into a series. There is just enough there in the movie, I would have liked to see where they would have gone with it.
@kles76, that suit had a lot of potential and I love the onboard weapon system it had. was Hathaway’s flash written by Tomino? Also there’s crossbone gundam that takes place between F91 and victory, they been demanding that to be made into an anime as well.
@megamanx181x, Correct, he wrote Hathaway’s Flash as well. I’m just familiar with some of the basics of it, but someday I would like to read Beltorchika’s Children and Hathaway’s Flash. I’d like to see what all was changed up when they made the switch to anime.
@kles76, good points, let’s see what the future holds
Pretty much the plot with Ocelot and Snake in Snake Eater
Not sure if its popular in the gundam fandom, but I fvcking loved Gundam Wing.
@Scottles, same here man! Grew up with it isn’t he 90s!
One of the greatest none newtype pilots in the UC era of gundam
@megamanx181x, Gato was a beast
@Einhardt, beautiful piloting
