What is this shit?

recency bias

no idea, that looks like a pretty shit site

>>21022870

> Most recent show is number 9 on the list
> Most recent movie, which also did gangbusters at the box office is only number 4
> Everything else is 20+ years old
> A film that's 35 odd years old is number 2
> A show that's 43 years old is number 4
> One of the best selling anime of all time is somehow number 1

Yup, must be recency bias.

Is there any indication what the number of votes is?

It's plausible. Westoids got the 79 movies on netflix recently, after all

Both lists are waaaaay better than I thought.

But
IBO
Wing
OO
Are really bad inclusions that both lists could very much do without.


Jap is better due to having cca #2 but west still has 79 at number 1. But both lists underestimate zeta unfortunately.
>>
>>21022868
>>21022895
These are really weird. Never expected Seed to be so low on the Japanese list. It didn't even make the American list. Zeta being barely on either list is strange too. I never knew 08th was so popular in the east and the west.
>>
Very disappointed G isn't higher.
>>
>>21023380

Bear in mind, these are votes being cast by people playing a game and may reflect not their favorite series as such, but the series their favorite units are from. Some of those shows don't even have entries in the game, hampering them even further so long as even a fraction of the voter base is judging on that quality.

Seems like an ok list aside from 0079 being a bit high

>>21022918
It should be, since its the best.
>>
>stardust barely made it.
underserved but nice to see
>>
>>21023424
true. for a show I'd vote for G but I'd hate having so many melee units in a shooting game, and they will only either be useless or broken as fuck.

It's official. I have the only good taste in the Gundam fanbase.

>>21024451
those are the only two regions that got the beta test

>>21022895
the only thing wrong with that is zeta is further up there and 83 was pushed out

CCA being so high surprised me. I like CCA but I dunno, feels like other things should be there first

And that's a good thing

SEED
08th MS Team

IBO
get them all out

IBO
Wing most of all
08th MS Team
all out

>>21022897
you have to be a big Gundamfag to even bother beta testing Scamco's latest cash grabs in the first place so it's not too surprising
>>
>>21023380
08th is very popular in the west, suprised to see it so high up on the Japanese list though.
>>
>>21022895
ANN's astroturfing worked.
>>
>>21024888

How? By making a 40 year old show that never finished airing in North America the most popular entry? By making one of the best selling anime of all time one of the most popular entries? By making a show that formed the basis for many American's exposure to anime before ANN even existed one of the most popular entries? By mostly having entries that aired in the US as the ones filling out the top 10? How much push are ANN giving 0079, Char's Counterattack, Zeta etc?
>>
>>21024905
>a show that formed the basis for many American's exposure to anime
Transformers?
>>
>>21024790
>you have to be a big Gundamfag to even bother beta testing Scamco's latest cash grabs in the first place so it's not too surprising
Streamers that had no idea about gundam beyond wow cool robot were playing it.
>cash grab
It's free retard.
>>
>>21024912

Transformers, as in the stuff most Americans watched (G1, Beast Wars) isn't anime.
>>
>>21023380
08th is only popular by people who haven't watched it, they think it's like Platoon and not hackneyed romanceshit
>>
>>21024905
Anon IBO was astroturfed with Funimation money, they pay ANN's bills up until they got merged with Crunchyroll earlier this year. Follow the money.
>>
>>21024993

Then why wasn't it first? Investigation isn't just about following the money, it's about finding out what that evidence suggests. Which is that IBO was (a) ANN isn't even all that popular overall, (b) that IBO is also popular in places that don't primarily use ANN or even use English and (c) that IBO sold a good bit outside whatever ANN was doing. Banrise may have been paying ANN, but they probably weren't paying them all that much on the whole and even if they were, it's likely so were other companies anyway because that's how a lot of websites work.

As is, IBO came second to a show ANN weren't giving much focus and only just ahead of one of the best selling anime of all time.
>>
>>21025018
>Then why wasn't it first?
Second place is a very huge deal.
>ANN isn't even all that popular overall
What? Really? When was this.
>they probably weren't paying them all that much on the whole and even if they were, it's likely so were other companies anyway because that's how a lot of websites work.
I... Just... My world view broke. I don't know what to believe now.
>>
>>21022868
>Unicorn being number 1
move that to number 5 or 6 and then I can say Nips have okay taste.
>>
>>21025028

> Second place is a very huge deal.

Second place to a show that ANN weren't focusing on isn't quite so illustrious however. The point being that focusing on "IBO got second" ignores the broader context of what else placed.

> What? Really? When was this.

Well let's see:

ANN's site traffic according to a site traffic monitor (https://www.semrush.com/website/animenewsnetwork.com/overview/)
> Views: 32.2 million
> US Ranking: 2,457
> Global Ranking: 3, 676

Now let's look at a rival, MAL (https://www.semrush.com/website/myanimelist.net/overview/):
> Views: 226 million
> US Ranking: 301
> Global Ranking: 422

MAL rates as about 7 times more popular just on those numbers, and has a news front as well as ranking, where pretty much every show has far more rankings to boot. ANN is not all that big, in the US or world wide. Crunchyroll and general nerd sites like Kotaku or IGN probably serve as greater hubs for a lot of anime news too.
>>
Who cares about the reason? The point is that americans have shit taste.
>>
>>21025070
Yeah, 00 isn't even in the top 5.
>>
>>21024333
>>21023430
OO is good. I've always like it a lot. Now I wish I never had it on there on my list.
>>
>>21024732
for seed?
no way!
>>
Unicorn is the biggest travesty on the list desu.
>>
>>21023368
>Underestimate Zeta
I think you mean over estimate, Zeta was trash. Hard agree on the rest but Char's Midlife Crisis featuring the screaming bitchboy he found looking for a terrorist organization to join is one of the worst UC series.

TOP 10 BEST GUNDAM SERIES/MOVIES OF ALL TIME POWER RANKINGS

1. V
2. Mobile Suit Gundam
3. Zeta
4. G
5. Turn A
6. X
7. Wing
8. Seed
9. G-Reco
>>
>>21026071
Zeta & CCA are godly. Go back filtered retard.
>>
>>21027156
Put X on 5 and G-Reco on 6 and replace Seed with 00 and i would agree
>>
>>21026071
True everyone knows the only good Zeta is Double Zeta
>>
>>21026071
This is worded in a very contrarian troll way but I have to agree that Zeta wasn’t that great and CCA was a very shite conclusion up to the 0079>Zeta>ZZ trilogy because it basically ignores the last two. CCA is unironically better when you don’t watch Zeta or ZZ.
>>
>>21022868
>movies
But not all of those are or have movies?
>>
I would never expect the masses to get the order correct
the correct order being
CCA
Turn A
Victory
Zeta
79
Hathaway
F91
and then everything else (there’s a few I haven’t seen though, such as G-Reco)
>>21032215
CCA makes perfect sense in the context of the previous series
>>
>>21033603
Japan in charge of English polls, and no one in America or Europe branch having opportunity to check translation
>>
>>21022868
I agree, Unicorn is the best.

Already better than japans list.

Uhhh fellas, where's F91?

There's an IBO movie???

>>21022868
Didn't think Japs cared much for IBO
>>
>>21022868
can someone explain the last episode of 08th ms team to me? I thought episode 11 was the perfect way to end it, especially the post script after the credits play but then episode 12 happens with some fucking lord of the fly kids that had no bearing on the show at all and the weird shit about names? What the fuck was the point of any of that? Why does episode 12 exist at all?

Asian fans in general don't like it, most of the fandom comes strictly from North American thanks to ANN astroturfing.

I'm amazed IBO is placed so high in general. I've heard a more positive reception from people who binged it but fuck season 1 was such a slog watching it as it aired being stuck in that damn ship for so long. Didn't even bother with season 2.
>>
ayo where the fuck is Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island???
>>
>>21041993

It never ceases to be rather funny that ANN is /m/'s bogeyman for the popularity of anything they don't like when ANN is a pretty small site, even relative to it's niche. I'd have thought MAL would be it, but no, ANN is the go to scapegoat despite being about 1/7th or 1/8 as popular even just on site traffic.
>>
>>21045689
Go back.
>>
>>21022868
This entire thread is just /m/ proving that they they have all Gundam. Anyways I'm on team whatever puts 00 the lowest fuck 00 lmao
