Is the ZZ the most disliked UC Gundam design?

No? I've never seen anyone complain about ZZ the mobile suit.

I will say now, though, that as much as I do really like the design, it does feel like a step backwards compared to the Z. The Z is so futuristic so sleek and curvy compared the previous Gundams, and then the ZZ went back to the normal Gundam aesthetics. It's the typical silhouette with greeblies and small details added on, which the original Z is absolutely not.

No I think the Banshee and Phoenix are absolute garbage. The ZZ is just chunky

The Odysseus is fucking amazing though.

No, I like how chunky and cumbersome the ZZ looks, as well at its big fuckoff double beam canon. It firs Judau as a character, too
>>
>>20201998
what's your opinion on the novel version Banshee?
>>
>>20201904
Not by a longshot.
>>
>>20201904
Not remotely. Even if we ignore the side stories and MSV, like the sorry Guncannon-wannabe Heavy Gundam, I'd say the original Victory is likely least liked. If for no other reason than it's so damn fragile and outshone by its own immediate successors.
>>
>>20201904
Ex-S, Dendrobium, Narrative & Unicorn/Banshee are all way uglier than ZZ
>>
>>20201998
I really didn't like the ZZ at first, but it grew on me. Unicorn, Banshee, and Phoenix? I don't think I'll ever come around to their design. Anything Post-Unicorn is just so busy, and messy, and not in a fun way like the ZZ is.

Nah ZZ is pretty well liked. It's a bit silly but thats okay the series was too, I'm more of a GUMP man myself.
>>
>>20202298
The Unicorn itself is very sleek, I like how unique it looks. Then it transforms and it's just a Gundam but literally edgier and that knocks it down several points
>>
>>20202363
People like to make excuses like "t-the corpo made him do it!!" when an otherwise creative person does something retarded, but Unicorn's transformation really does feel like a design by committee, doesn't it?
>>
>>20202304
That is fucking awful.
>>
>>20202363
Unicorn looks amazing in Unicorn Mode but terrible in Destroy Mode. Meanwhile I love the Banshee in Destroy Mode but think that it loses all the cool edge it has when it's in Unicorn Mode, it just looks really dumb.
>>
>>20202381

Kinda the point. It does the job.

well, that's Hasegawa for you. I like both Judau and his ZZ from the original show, but all the Grey Stoke stuff was totally retarded
>>
>>20202025
It did nothing in the movie.
>>
For me its any season 2 00 suit
>>
>>20201904
it's alright
it would've made more sense being made before the Zeta Gundam than after, at least design-wise
putting it in the show AFTER Zeta stymied development on any of the innovations the Zeta brought, especially in head design. it marks the first instance of the evolution of Gundam design stopping dead in its tracks, with the second being the jump from Turn A to SEED

I can look past the stupid arm flaps and the stupidly big beam saber but I can't get over that dumb looking gun

it's be way better as an over/under like on the FA gundam

It depends on who you ask. A lot of people on /m/ would probably pick the Strike Freedom or Unicorn Destroy Mode as their least favorite, but they rank high in Japanese polls. So what section of society are you asking? If you go by that big NHK poll from a few years ago for instance, which had over 1.5 million votes, then ZZ placed #39 on the mobile suit category. It placed ahead of a good few other lead Gundams though (https://www.nhk.or.jp/anime/gundam/ranking/).

#39: ZZ Gundam
#42: Gundam EZ-8
#57: V2 Gundam
#64: GP-01 Full Bernie
#76: Unicorn Gundam (Unicorn Mode)
#77: Gundam RX-78NT-1 "Alex"

You get even more if you open it to non-lead Gundams. On the other hand, units that are unpopular here place highly. Such as:

#03: Strike Freedom Gundam
#12: Unicorn Gundam (Destroy Mode)

There was probably some vote stuffing though, and it still only represents a section of society. Still, ZZ seems pretty firmly middle of the pack.

>>20214163
Japs are retarded as always, NT-1 is peak Izubuchi design just like the Nu, and yet the latter is what... first? while NT-1 is behind freaking Unicorn. Just further proof that these surveys don't mean shit
>>
>>20201904
It's by far my least favorite of the main UC Gundam designs.
>>
>>20214163
>Unicorn Destroy Mode
What's wrong with it?
>>
>>20214163
>first is nu
>second is zeta
i love the japanese
>>
>>20214163
>03: Strike Freedom Gundam

They are not voting for the Gundams. They are voting for Kira Yamato
>>
>>20201904
Only flaw is his gun not looking like a double barrel shotgun
>>
>>20214413

You say that like a significant portion of the people voting for the Nu, Zeta, Sazabi etc. aren't voting for it because of the pilot.
>>
>>20201904
better than V1
>>
>>20214163
So what's wrong with Strike Freedom's design? Is it the gold?

>>20201904
It certainly looks overstuffed. The Zeta was odd to me with its angular face but grew on me over time. Double Zeta is taking longer everytime I look at it I seek to find more and more unnecessary stuff attached to it
>>
>>20201904
The giant backpack ruins the silhouette. Without it, the ZZ's not really overly chunky like you'd imagine, excluding the massive calves. Personally I really like the folding shields on the arms, gives it a unique profile.

I'm neutral about ZZ but I really like Tryon 3.
>>
Is it wrong of me to treat the ZZ as a Super in SRW?
>>
>>20220801
Judau can't dodge for shit in most SRWs so yes you should use it like a Super.
>>
>>20220801
Only when you upgrade it to FA and have basically two life bars. Otherwise it can't shrug damage off like a true super robot, and newtypes pilots have always been better at dodging than tanking anyways.
>>
>>20220724
Personally it's my favourite element of the design next to the knees even though it's more reminiscent of a Guncannon style backpack with those heavy beam cannons.
>>
>>20220820
With the psychofield active, I find Judau makes for a pretty great support defender.

I mean got to make new kid the Gundam pilot just weird her being part of a giant war over a colony laser to just go "Fa can't handle this give the Gundam to a junk rat boy who has 0 piloting experience" At least Kamille was told he was an amazing pilot at the start of Zeta.

>>20220849
Units with barriers are always good defenders yeah, although I don't think Jewdough ever has it by default after the Support skill was split into Attack and Defend

Nah that's Gsaviour

>>20214437
I don't give a fuck who people are voting and why, I'm just saying the ZZ would be way cooler with a double barrel shotgun
>>
>>20221207

It basically has that.
>>
>>20221046
This. Fa was never Ace material but she wasn't super fucking terrible either like she's depicted in ZZ. She was around the same level of a decent pilot like Apolly near the end of Zeta.
>>
I liked it more than the Zeta
