Turn A Gundam.
>>
>>17312562
It almost killed the franchise and for a long time was one of the worst entries, now its more in the middle. Fuck it, Turn Fail needs to be rightfully slammed every chance.

Gundam no
no robots after 30 seconds.
Weird early 20th century world.
WHERES MUH GUNDAM

Until IBO Loran really was the absolute worst gundam character, topping even the likes of Haman, Ple, and Duo (ugh).

I can't self inset as him so it's shit!

Loaded with low quality "animation", so glad anime stopped with cel shit and went to win induced CGI.

Looks great so far. Hope it keeps up the same pace.

It had the lowest ratings until Age, thankfully Cosmic Era rescued Gundam from this trash.

Holy shit, how did this thread last 20 years?

IBO, AGE, Cosmic Century.
I haven't heard of any of these gundam shows?
Are they shows between X and turn a?
I'm lost I thought I had seen everything up to Turn A.

It's my autistic neighbor's fanfiction project that he came up with after catching an episode of Wing on Toonami. Check out my geocities page if you want to read it.

Seems like it could be.

Does Loran have the nigga pass?

>>17312711
I'm sick of everyone on this board thinking their fanfiction is the best idea for gundam. Reconquista? Spanish words in gundam cool cool.
This design is so terrible and looks like a baby drew it.
Let's leave gundam to professionals like Tomino okay

It helps that he's black.

Not in the slightest. Especially not after shitheads like Heero or forgettable literally-who like Bellri and Garrod. Or simply just fantasy wishfullfillment like Kira.
>>
>>17312820
That's why Loran was the worst before Murderzuki.

Gundam X should have been the last Gundam entry, it was basically way better Turn A.

I wish it had killed the franchise, would be a ton better than the infinite death spiral we are in now.

The end of the first episode is such a great moment, there's something vaguely spooky but really interesting about Turn A that it just perfectly captures

Looks a bit like Granada. Maybe the show is a sequel to UC?
Then again it could just be coincidence.

What did the Italians think of it? They like Gundams

How do you know the first episode has aired. Seems pretty cool to me.

I thought Italians only liked "super robot" Nagai-esque stuff.

>it was basically way better Turn A.
It really wasn't, it just had the potential to be. Garrod grew to be pretty cool but Tiffa was bland as cardboard and she was supposed to be half of the romance that serves as the main narrative focus of the series, the only memorable thing about her was that she was buds with a fucking Newtype dolphin in that one episode. Speaking of which, the series goes up it's ass about Newtype nonsense even moreso than this franchise usually does, and the overarching UNE vs SRA/Frost Brothers plot was pretty weak too.

I want to like it more because like I said, Garrod's pretty likeable and so are some of the other side characters + it has some nice robot designs in there too, it's just not that great for the most part though.
>>
>>17313563
>the series goes up it's ass about Newtype nonsense
But that's kind of the point, to present all the different takes on Newtypes that UC offered and then reject them and say 'fuck that, just be nice to each other'

the dreamcast is going to be the system that ruins all the others. Just look at the release titles. Shit is going to be amazing.

Damn this first episode is indicative of a show that will go on to be one of the best Gundam series ever created, with a likeable protagonist that has believable development, a god-tier soundtrack, excellent Mobile Suit and character designs, and with an endearing and heart-warming theme of preservation and love that culminates in a meaningful and mostly satisfying conclusion.
All this despite any (hypothetical) baseless claims of how shit it is.

Oh and Im sure best girl will win. Right?
