Finished Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory. I never realized the broader implications of what the series meant at the time they showed it, mainly a power grab by the military to get more power. Now on to Gundam Wing
Not that I understood it at the time either especially with my introduction being here you should watch this and then sitting though all of it on VHS tapes from Hong Kong--with the only subtitles being in Chinese. Still enjoyed it. Backfired on me later when the same person gave me Urotsukidōji to watch.... that ended the friendship. Spaceships robots and attractive pilot with a dark past but he's good inside and I can change him yes, tentacle rape no.
0083 was made to bridge the gap between the already released Mobile Suit Gundam and Z Gundam shows. I'd recommend going that route instead of jumping to the alternate universe Gundam Wing. Or you could do more fill-in with 0080.
Oh no, I'm watching them for nostalgia's sake. I do have Zeta Gundam too, but Gundam Wing is due back first so I'm frantically watching it.I tried watching the original Gundam condensed into the 3 movies, but unfortunately it was all in japanese so I couldn't watch it in the background.
