Where to Start - Getting into Gundam

As a moderator over at /r/Gundam I often see folks asking how to get into the franchise and what shows to watch. Hopefully this guide will help you along that path.



If you don't have time to go through and read, it's best to pick with one of the below series:  

Mobile Suit Gundam



Gundam 0080

Gundam 00

G Gundam

Note that the above are in no order of preference or recommendation. Why I think they're four good starting points is detailed below.

If you can't be bothered as to finding out why the above are recommended, or just want me to make the decision for you, then watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam. The full series, all 43 episodes, not the movies.


Otaku Evolution Episode 36 - The Vision of Escaflowne

IMMEDIATELY flagged for copyright violations! Thanks, Bandai, you greedy fuckers. Maybe one day Japan will have Fair Use laws, but I wouldn't count on it, because entertainment execs there are even greedier than human tumors we have over here. The Fair Use law over here means exactly shit these days as it is. But the video is still up, so watch it.


Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin Episode I

Episode 01, "Blue-Eyed Casval"

Penguin Truth Recommends - Gundam

Fire up your Psycommu System and switch on TRANS-AM mode, because in this video, I make a quick examination of the biggest mecha franchise in anime, Gundam!
