>>Gundam SEED is good on it's own
This is a fairly popular opinion. Vocal Minority just distorts this.
>>
>>17139060
Normally I hear people say it's just ok, but I think it's not just ok but legitimately good. It gave us a story that was self-contained, had a pretty smooth progression in its plot barring clipshows, some really good mechanical design, and one of my favorite Char clones.

These aren't really unpopular opinions but okay

Unless it's really, actually bad or the Japanese voice acting is just that good I tend to just default to English dubs most of the time when one's available, which isn't really all that often these days anyways. The gap between Japanese and English voice acting is extremely overblown, the vast majority most of both just sounds "fine" and is mostly unremarkable.

You wanna see a REAL unpopular opinion?

I think Symphogear is one of the best new series from this decade and would easily be the best /m/ show from this decade as well if Build Fighters and Space Dandy didn't exist.

This first three SEED Destiny compilation movies are the best piece of Gundam media released in the 00s.

Now that's an unpopular opinion

I like Code Gayass.

the original zeta OP's are classic, but this one fits better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVp_jCwhFB0

>>17139362
>>
>>17139052
I think ZZ is legitimately great starting from episode 18 (aside from the first half of episode 41), with episode 25 being one of the greatest episode in the history of Gundam in general. It's also the most visually impressive Gundam TV series. Silent Voice is far superior to Anime ja Nai as well (not that I dislike it)
>>
>>17139396
Fuck, I forgot about G-Reco. Make that second best looking then.
>>
>>17139362
I'm not sure I'll say it's better. I'm enamored with all the Zeta OPs I'd say. This was the Zeta OP I began watching the series with I believe... and then with the second half of the show I switched from dub to sub for some reason.

The second arc with Four in Zeta is one of the worst parts of any Gundam show.

Now this anon gets it.

Four really should have died in Hong Kong, so we could have, reintroduced Rosamia much earlier and would've had time to flesh out Scirocco as a character.

Sorry, OP, but you only posted correct opinions.

People who use terms like "real robot" and "super robot" need to be hung from the trees or gassed.

I honestly hate Kamen Rider as a franchise.

This is only unpopular on this board, but Evangelion is one of the best /m/ series.

J-Decker is the best Brave series.

Oh yeah, and this last one I know is the consensus on 2ch but I can't remember for the life of me what people think about him here, so I may as well post it too
>NAOKI is a talentless hack and shouldn't be allowed to design anything ever again

Origin's CGI is amazing and some of the best CGI in all anime

IBO had interresting setting, and the ms design is unorthodox compared to every AU gundam

Q, the ending theme to Raideen The Superior, is unironically one of the best ending themes to any mecha anime. Fight me.

>Kawamori basically stole Macross.

Can you please elaborate?
>>
The Build franchise stopped being good after the first season, i have no idea why people like Try or Divers and i thought they were terrible shows and i have zero hope for anything else from that continuity.

People who think IBO is the worst Gundam entry in the entire franchise are fucking insane petty wretches.

War in the Pocket is overrated and the soundtrack is one of the worst things put to animation.

Gundam badly deserves another super robot series like G.

The sooner UC dies for good, the better for everyone.
>>
>>17139052
A lot of people like Men of Destiny more than the winner.
>>
>>17150222
As far as I understand SDFM was a collaborative work with Kawamori, Ishiguro, and Itano, similar to how Yamato was Matsumoto and Nishizaki
Over time Kawamori maneuvered himself to be THE Macross guy, like Matsumoto tried while Nishizaki was in prison but successfully

This is not an unpopular opinion

Char Clones are shit and have never been utilized properly in Gundam.
Instead of being characters on their own that go through arcs that lead them down a path similar to Char they have a "CCA" switch that gets flipped in the second season/end of the show. Graham Aker being the worst example donning a stupid mask and name and having everything interesting about his personality butchered while getting way too much screen time.

Pic Related is a great show, the main characters all being teenagers while a common trope in the industry is essential here because it plays a large part in the actions they take that would be egregious from an adult, it has the best char clone and it isn't even Gundam

Mobile fighter g gundam is terrible and I hate it. When inwatch gundam I want gundam, not a super robot mazinger ripoff.
>>
>>17139052
Zeta might be the worst of the main three early UC shows.
>>
>>17139052
AGE is better than G-reco and IBO.
>>
>>17139362
This is the hill I'll die on.

>That trumpet lead + visuals @ 0:37

>>17150240
Itano still gets credited with the "Itano Circus", but Kawamori is the heart and soul of Macross. I wouldn't really say he stole it if he pulls most of the weight
>>
>>17150510
>>17150195
People on /m/ can be total retards as they forget that /m/'s definition of mecha is not the sole objective definition of mecha. Inb4 "it says "/m/ - Mecha" that means everything in this board is MECHA!" That's not true, toku like Ultraman are not mecha but are /m/. THEY BELONG in /m/ but they're not necessarily mecha outside of /m/

I think Gridman is great because it shows that modern mecha can be great despite having CGI. Its 2D bits and final 2D battle was good enough to keep 2D purists to keep watching imo.
If Darling in the Franxx ended well, it could've pushed more 2D mecha but the writers had to be hacks and ruin everything.
I hope Promare and Gridman can set an example and not end up like Gurren Lagann.
>>
>>17151196
Franxx needed more than a good ending, it needed a good everything.

tomb raider legend and tenchu 3 were the first good games of their respective series, both for the same reasons: acrobatic 3D platforming only works with long draw distance and analog control.
