Is this regarded as one of the better animated gundam series? Im 8 episodes in and the fights and everything in general has looked amazing. Did this have a higher budget for some reason?
>>
>>20908645
It had a relatively low budget because it was post-crash, but Tomino was supremely experienced so he could make his team work efficiently, and mostly not bothering with shading allowed for him to save some more. It's honestly amazing that V Gundam didn't have to use stock footage like other Gundams of the 90s.
>>
>>20908645
Unfortunately no, as people tend to complain about the minimal shading. Additionally, halfway through the show, it will look even better as Gainax will assist animating some scenes. Check this Twitter thread for examples, but also be mindful of spoilers if that matter to you:

>>
>>20908645
For animation, it is decent. However, visual wise, it looked quite lackluster due to how characters looked like moving mspaint drawings most of the time.
>>
>>20908645
I feel like a lot of that comes up to creativity too, even when the animation isn't the best Uso fights are some of the most fun to watch thanks to the V's disposable parts.
>>
>>20908653
Victory still made use of some stock footage, especially for the transformation scenes, but it was nowhere near as bad/obvious as Wing which came two years later.
>>
like a lot of tomino shows, victory has good animation direction even when the budget fails
>>
Victory's animation was okay, but the real treat was in the choreagraphy

I recall it looking the best early on and then becoming very hit or miss throughout the rest of it with some really lazy ugly scenes. That one guy flying into that giant wheel. I recall being one of the really crappy scenes.

Don't most anime tend to save their time/budget for the important episodes? Turn A's ep 1 looks like an OVA compared to some later episodes.

>>
>>20909252
these are all better than victory
>>
>>20909220
I wouldn't say that but I am surprised at how much I liked it considering that this was the show where Tomino pretty much had it with Sunrise
>>
>>20909254
If you have no measurement for quality, maybe. All these shows are shallow cash crabs with no identity of their own rather than trying to ape the original MSG and failing miserably at it. Say what you want about Victory but it brought something fresh to the table and it did it well, with the only criticism being its overall bleakness and the easily disposable characters having random death scenes. Show is still solid no matter what and has a lot of memorable moments and a God-tier final stretch of episodes. Implying fucking Wing did it better is just ridiculous.
>>
>>20909252
What’s wrong with 08th MS Team?
>>
>>20909275
lol ok
victory had a few good scenes, can't deny that, but most characters, even the surviving ones, were bland grey slates with nothing interesting about them and the show as a whole is just boring
it's still worth watching though, simply for having context for crossbone
>>
>>20909254
Pleb taste.
>>
>>20909293
It's a pretty shallow story all things considered. And all the main characters are boring walking tropes.
>The quiet big guy with a heart of gold
>The annoying womanizer
>The cowardly guy
>The strong woman with a broken heart
>The evil scientist
I could go on, and the story was more of the same shit but with a ""realistic"" twist, although I didn't find anything realistic about it.
The Gouf custom fight was great though. Honestly I don't understand why people love this OVA so much. Oh and Aina miraculously surviving was dumb as shit.
>>
>>20909487
08th ms team would be much better if its last episode did not exist.
>>
>>20908653
>>20908985
They actually draw the victory's transformations a few times and I was surprised they did that considering how complicated it is.
>>
>>20909487
Huh. I really can't argue with any of that.
Come to think of it, I can't actually name a character from it. I mostly just remember liking the ground type gundam and the gouf episode.
>>
When Victory is at its best it looks amazing and is a joy to watch. It has awfully low lows however. But at least it's never boring.
>>
>>20908940
People complain about the shading, but that's not all there is to animation.
There are many styles that go without it too like ligne-claire.
Also Victory has a ton of really expressive character animation.

>>20909220
>>20909226
Yeah I think I might actually agree, I definitely enjoyed it a lot more than Zeta, though I think Zeta handled some of its antagonists better.
That's the only place where I thought Victory failed because a lot of the antagonists were just crazy instead of feeling like real people.
Zeta had more a interesting idea with the Titans.

Why is the Victory so damn cute
>>
>>20909078
There aren't any Tomino TV anime that aren't better than the rest of the Gundam franchise.
>>
>>20909119
Not really, it's more so that different episodes have whole different animation teams on them and they go in rotation, usually they get the same intervals to make the episodes as the other teams, with some odd filler teams, this was standard in 80s shows. You would get certain teams who would do every 4th or 5th episodes that were exceptional. 90s Sunrise started offloading huge proportions of shows to Studio Dove, this peaked in Wing and X when they had Dove on almost every episode. X got a good amount of extra freelance staff to help. But it's one of the reasons why Wing is so weak animation wise in comparison to any other Gundam anime. In the 80s Dove were one of Sunrise's highest quality subcontractors ( Sunrise always outsourced everything animation wise), and on normal rotation they continually put out great work. Sunrise found them so reliable that they stretched them really thin. Victory is an early step in this trend where Dove takes on over a quarter of the show.

Those Dove episodes, while not bad per se, don't usually match up to ones led by Zeta animators like Yaushiro Seo, and Atsushi Shigeta as a mecha KA ace (much of the truly great mecha animation in the show is him), Anime R people like Osaka,Taniguchi and Yoshida, Murase, who was just coming into his own and made waves with episode 24, the Gainax episodes, the Nakamura Pro episodes, and even the proto Xebec episodes (would have been associated with I.G at the time I presume). Those teams all got normal rotations where Dove had to grind out way too much of the show themselves.

You really don't get enough of mecha turning parts of their body in ways humans can't. In a simmilar vein the Victory has the absolute best location for storing the beam sabers and it's a bit surprising more aren't like that because it seems so obvious, but then again I guess putting them on the back or hip is better for toys.
>>
>>20910137
That makes sense. I watched J-Decker last year and it was really obvious that the filler episodes were the same guys every time. Yuta would always look like a weird blob rather than his more angular look in the opening which probably takes much more skill.

I dunno, it always gives me that feeling of "what if the beam saber slips out of the grip after it falls out." Though I guess it would be a pre-programmed motion to eject and grab anyway.
>>
>>20911005
I hadn't thought of that being a problem, I was mainly thinking in terms of it always being accessable because it's conceivable you wouldn't be able to reach to the back or wherever else it is.
>Though I guess it would be a pre-programmed motion to eject and grab anyway.
It almost certainly is but I don't think that'd help with the MS colliding with something or any other sudden movement so it could still be a problem.
>>
>>20910985
J-Decker actually has no Dove. Sasakado did 10 solo episodes though, may be thinking of those, I didn't find them impressive either. In Xabungle he was doing these crazy nearly no stills per episode solo episodes with really good animation - but his Braves episodes often were just lackluster for whatever reason from what I've seen. Dove would have been covering 50% of G Gundam around then. Dove's mecha ace: Kouji Koizumi, died before the 90s came around, responsible for the Sazabi vs Nu fight, and tons of other things, so that must be some of it too. He could have definitely given those shows a big boost in quality.

Victory is a typical Tomino show, so if you like Tomino you probably also like Victory. Nice MS designs as well. G-Reco is kind of like this too.

>>20908645
I recall one anon describing the show as something like "A pregnant Indian women and a bunch of kids take down an empire of totalitarian space feminists" as a means of making fun of it, but to me that's one of the reasons it's up there in my favorites. Only Tomino would do that.

Mashymre was my favorite male ZZ character. Yes he's goofy, but his character arc is tragic.
>>
>>20911107
I feel like once he got the V2, Uso became less creative. I'm guessing because it was more powerful and better armored, that meant Uso didn't need to come up with whacky battle tactics as often to come out on top. That's why I've always been indifferent with the V2 but fucking love the Victory.

No it didn't? Victory was quite literally Tomino doing everything he can to tank the series popularity by making it as dark as he possibly could because he was having a breakdown and didn't want anything to do with Gundam at that point. To this end we got poorly developed characters and forgettable antagonists who were just Zeon but even worse. The only thing one could praise Victory for are the mecha designs and as always the music.

>a lot of the antagonists were just crazy instead of feeling like real people.
Zanscare is similar to other Gundam antagonists in that they're mostly a bunch of cynical assholes twisting seemingly good ideals into serving awful goals. For Zeon it was freedom for spacenoids and the advancement f humanity through newtypes, for the Titans it was the promise of peace and order in the Earth Sphere, for Cosmo Babylonia it was meritocracy as a solution to the Federation's corruption. For Zanscare it's pacifism and matriarchy as an alternative to the Federation's male politics.
To highlight the hypocrisy of Zanscare, they're violent and ruthless to almost insane degrees, and ever single woman in a position of power is under the thumb of a man, except Katejina who ironically, even though she was kidnapped, manages to overcome her kidnapper and uses him to boost her career in Zanscare.
The complete nonsense that is Zanscare is even highlighted in their aesthetics. Notice how they use the guillotine, the symbol of the terror of the French Revolution, as their main method of execution, even though they try to emulate old European monarchies.
Personally, as a faction at least, I think Zanscare is legitimately more interesting than the Titans.

In Gundam usually most of the antagonists came off as rational people even if they've applied their ideology in bad ways. whereas in Victory people are just nuts.

In MSG you never get the sense that Garma, Ramba Ral, M'Quvee, Chalia Bull, Lalah, or the Tri-Stars are crazy people.
They all were just normal soldiers doing their duty but as people they were mostly decent human beings.
Even in Zeta while you have more emotional and angry characters like Jerid he isn't crazy in his thought process.
The only crazy people in CCA are Quess and Char, but Quess is a teenage girl and Char's actions can be understood more deeply when his history is taken into account.

In contrast many of the main antagonists within Zanscare in comparison are just incredibly loopy and often don't feel human at all.
Faula is crazy, Katejina also goes crazy, then you have the Biker couple, Lupe, and the whole bikini squadron and by extension the rest of Zanscare for even letting people like that get into this sort of position.
The reasons why these people are like this are flimsy or non-existent at best.
Even if it's being done to make a point it's still a poor execution. Tomino has done better elsewhere and if anything dropping the ball with these antagonists is probably a result of his dissatisfaction with bandai at the time.

The early Earth parts of Victory are set around Europe, somewhere around Czechoslovakia. The score has hints of European classical music, mainly hints of Russian composers (Stravinsky, Prokofiev, etc.) which is also interesting since Victory was the 1st post-Cold War era Gundam made.

The look on her face was priceless. The way she clearly didn't like the feeling of her tight pucker getting stretched conflicted with the overflowing feeling of getting filled by the boy that she liked. It was like she simultaneously wanted to ask him to stop, while also begging him to keep going. Like, just remember the way she clutched at the blanket and drooled through her gritted teeth!

that's the thing, lots of people say they like 08th MS Team because it's "so grounded! so realistic!" compared to most Gundam stuff but you can count the amount of realism that occurs on one hand, I think the opening and the general "jungle that looks like Vietnam" setting really tricked people
Shit I'd argue the original MSG is more grounded than 08th MS Team

So I'm pretty new to victory and I'm not sure if I'm just seeing things I want to see. But is IBO basically Victory with a twist?
I'm noticing a lot of similar scenes handled differently and IBO analogs of the supporting victory staff. Kudelia for example feels like a retread of Ketejina but with a flip of their power dynamic. The Gary fight, while dissimilar in circumstance to Crank's duel also seems to explore the Uso and Mika's characters with contrasting results.

Victory is so good and goes to such dark but really well done places that not even Tomino can handle it. Had to take a break because sadness and came back with his Teriyaki Revue fanfic with Turn A. Turn A is not a Gundam show. It's his love letter to that all female play acting troup. That's why it is the way it is. This? Victory? Victory was Tomino doing what he wanted while being angsty over corporate interferance as always.

Victory was the last great albeit massively flawed Gundam show of its era. Uso is fantastic despite being a kid, Shakti was the heart of the show and perpetual reminder of the home Uso wanted to fight his way back to, Karlmann was my favorite annoying baby, space pooch, the lean into religious zealoutry being used by despotic government to secure the power and spread of the Zanscare empire BRUH. So good.

Yes, the giant tire weapons were dumb and yes Katajina was so shoddily written that Tomino just made her a cyber newtype in his novelization to explain it away but honestly, I love this show. This grim yet ultimately hopeful black sheep of the Gundam franchise, rejected by its own father, inspired countless mecha and anime for generations to come (Evangelion being just one of them, with this and Ideon being major inspirations aside from Ultraman etc).

Victory > G Gundam > Wing > IBO >>>>>> retarded 00 "war will end if we just UNDERSTAND"

>>20913837
UNlike the dumbbells who replied to you I see where you're coming from and a lot of the similarities you're spotting is because Victory Gundam's themes and plot elements were adopted by countless anime after it, if not directly inspired by it.

The entire crux of IBO is literal child soldiers and dehumanizing youths for war, prostitution, etc. Obviously Victory was the first Gundam show to really tackle the idea of child soldiers on the good guy side, long before Thunderbolt was praised for the same, and whereas Amuro was about the age of a mecha protag if not a year or so younger Uso was the youngest and is the youngest of most mecha protags, especially in a story that involves genocide, beheadings, attempted rape, pedophilia etc.

So are there direct parallels? Probably not, but it's retarded to think the writers behind IBO didn't take some inspiration from Victory.

One complaint I have about Victory is that the Main character never had to face true danger since he had basically unlimited parts to spare so he could fight recklessly, In other series a pilot would have to fight multiple episodes missing an arm or having a damaged head but in Victory Uso could just say FUCK IT and didn't care how much Victory got damaged, while it leads to some interesting fight scenes the whole series lacked urgency and having a pilot be careful
>>
>>20923003
Haman and Judau might honest to god be one of the worst pairings in Gundam. I have no idea where this comes from or why they did this.
>>
>>20925269
I kind of enjoyed the way he just used his spares as ghetto a mix of funnel and bomb. Like, he'd make his boots kamikaze while spamming its rifle or have his arms spin its sabers or turn on its shields before it collides into shit. Its kind of a shame he doesn't get much cockpit kills with his head vulcan because its so fucking effective.
I do agree though, they could have probably kitted the entire shrike team with Vs if Uso didn't use them carelessly.
>>
>>20909079
I kinda liked it in ZZ, iirc Judau pulled some funny tricks with it like leaving the upper part and legs hanging onto some space-debris and then sneaking around with the core fighter
>>
>>20910876
Tomino was playing stuff like that for comedy at the start but if you stop to think about their lives as slum kids then you can sort of understand that they don't really care about the war but just want to do whatever is in their own best interests, though of course this changes over the course of the series
I mean the only reason Judau ended up getting involved anyways is because he thought he could steal the Zeta and sell it for a profit, a far cry from Amuro's reluctant but necessary piloting or Kamille's resentful urges leading him to get in the Mk2

>In other series a pilot would have to fight multiple episodes missing an arm or having a damaged head
I mean sometimes they lost a head or arm, but it was always fixed by the next episode. Which pilot are you referring to that had to learn to deal with missing limbs for multiple episodes?

>the Main character never had to face true danger since he had basically unlimited parts to spare
Somewhat true, but only when he was fighting as part of an MS team from the LM flagship. There were times that Uso was operating alone or as part of a small team with the Fishbone or White Ark where he didn't have spare parts to rely on. While Uso still had a relatively high performance Gundam, the gap between enemy MS and his own was smaller than for most other protagonists, except for maybe Kamille and his Gundam Mark II. Uso's Victory and V2 Gundams definitely didn't have better armor. For the one or two episodes just before Uso receives the V2 Gundam, he's cornered and on the run from Katejina who whittles down his half-repaired Victory into just the core fighter, and later has to use the damaged leaky core fighter to escape back to his mothership.

Also, urgency came from the fact that often the LM had to fight at a disadvantage when it came to numbers or had specific objectives or things to work around that Zanscare didn't have to do. E.g., most of their fight with the motorad fleet ended up being a desperate struggle where they just couldn't effectively stop or route their advance until Uso went "fuck this shit" and detonated a MS reactor directly in their path.

People who say Victory has bad animation are blind.
There's more to animation quality than just shading, otherwise Inferno cop is a visual masterpiece if that's the most important metric.

Victory has great choreography, some of the most inventive in the entire Gundam franchise.
And the quality of the drawings is much better than the previous Gundam shows.
There is a MUCH better understanding of perspective and space applied to the drawings in victory as well.
That largely is due to the fact that it came out in the 90s after realism in anime had matured.
And the character animation is also amazing, especially when they get into space, some of the ways they show people casually moving in Zero-G weren't seen in the prior Gundam tv series, and even 0080. CCA had a few shots, but imo Victory is the first series to really hammer it home.
Victory also has a very strong sense of physicality, the characters interact with their backgrounds so much and that adds to the realism feel the series has.
Just talking about it makes me wanna watch it again.
You had guys like Murase bringing his A-game with tons of great cuts and early Gainax helping out as well.
>>
>>20925972
It's not common no, but I do recall the MK-II having at least 2 sorties with a missing arm in Zeta, and in ZZ there's the infamous Zeta Zaku. 0079 also had some armor damage shown on the Gundam for a few episodes IIRC.
>>
>>20925994
>People who say Victory has bad animation are blind.
Most consumers (read: normalfags) don't put in effort to try and understand or appreciate the actual artistry of animation but rather view it as just a visual storytelling medium, and so if they don't like a particular artstyle they get filtered by it.
>>
>>20913837
How much Gundam have you watched? Both Kudelia and Katejina fit the space princess archetype present in a lot of Gundam stories, which is why you are finding them so similar (although Katejina's arc ends up subverting it). When i first watched Victory she too reminded me a lot of another space princess, the one from F91 (forgot her name lmao), who also fights for the enemy's side at one point (though unlike Katejina she doesn't become a villain)

I don't really see the Kudelia and Katejina parallels. Aside from being blonde and having romantic/sexual tension with MC, they're pretty different. The space princess archetype in Victory is Shakti anyway, since Katejina is never really elevated by anyone as a symbol or a person who is important/necessary for either side's goal.

Is the whole reactor exploding = really bad exclusively a victory thing? I don't recall anyone giving a fuck in the other gundams.
>>
>>20936869
It's stated to pollute the Earth in Victory, and seeing how the planet is basically half-dead that's a much bigger deal than it was in earlier wars. Especially since both sides have their reasons for preserving Earth, which wasn't the case with for example Zeon or Federation.
But it's never really fully explained as far as I know. But it does make the fights a fair bit more interesting in my opinion.
>>
>>20936873
What I don't get is how the reactor exploding is going to pollute anything. Aren't MS powered by fusion? Fusion is clean AFAIK.
>>
>>20936900
The bigger question is why either side didn't exploit the fact that people avoid shooting generators. Why not build a mobile suit with a reactor for a shield? Why not build a mobile suit that threatens an explosion on pilot death?
>>
>>20936869
I finished Gundam and Zeta and the reactor exploding is bad due to the collateral damage (colonies get holes in them a whole bunch of times due to the robots exploding) but the shows don't go into the residual radiation

first half of ZZ sucks even without watching it right after Zeta. The slapstick humor is just poorly executed.

But these are based more on timing and situations, rather than "HAHA FUNNY, LAUGH NOW" of ZZ.
