@ThomasF What about Gundam Wing (which I misread as “Goddamn Wing” at first glance)? 0080, Unicorn, and that reboot that aired on Toonami a year or so ago are all that I’ve seen but 0083 is the only one I would consider rewatching. Is Gundam even available on a service like Netflix or Funimation Now or does Rightstuf have their streaming rights too?
@JT954@RiotDemon Yep, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and even their official channel. The full movie for Gundam F91 is up there too. And 0080 is pretty alright.
Unicorn is definitely a somewhat iffy watch on its own, as it gets the most impact if you already know/have the original, Zeta, ZZ, and Char’s Counterattack.
Gundam Wing is kinda ridiculous. It’s really nostalgic for most people, but it’s not in the same timeline as the main series and is pretty soap opera-y and angsty compared to the main timeline. G Gundam, Gundam Seed, Gundam 00, Gundam AGE, and Iron-Blooded Orphans are all in a similar vein to varying degrees of success.
Guy at my church, mid 60s, him and the wife were attempting to fix me up with daughter-in-law sister, invited me over for dinner. He has me come visit him in basement after. Ho. Ly. Crap. He had a ton, pretty sure I can properly use “literally” here to say he literally had a ton of Gundam models. Some guys do trains. Some guys do ships. He does Gundam. I can’t even imagine how much money he’s put into it. It was one of the most stunning sites I have ever seen.
@DVDBZN@simplersimon that seems complicated. First he’s got to cancel his date. Get the guy to divorce his wife. Hang onto his collection in the divorce. Then get married. Then take them out of the box… That’s… A lot.
I prefer being an adult over being a kid. Freedom to do as I please…except in 2020.
I know my tween nephew watches Japanese cartoons. It all seems quite ridiculous and child-like to me. I guess if you’re an immature man you might like it (I refuse to believe an adult women would enjoy it, unless she’s developmentally delayed).
There’s adult themed anime too, just as there are child themed live-action movies. I don’t watch much, but I appreciate animation in that it gives the creator so much more room to be artistic.
If you don’t understand why somebody likes something, it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with them @kittykat9180. Frankly, that just close-minded and rude.
I am for many years the creator and coordinator of an Anime/Dramas/Manga/Foodie club. A Wing of which is still currently in a New York City high school; a well as on Facebook: “Beacon/Pan-Asian Culture Club.” At least half of our Membership has watched some episodes of “GUNDAM”, and are constantly fascinated by the series.
