Thats odd, G Gundam DVD has been released here in Singapore.

Is it still unlicensed?

Tboz 2003-12-03 12:35

HOLY NECRO THREAD BATMAN!

... yes, it's been 12 years, or approximately since Asuki was founded, since this thread has seen life. Then again, this is what happens when this series airs around if not before Evangelion, and well before Asuki or the Internet as we know it today existed. However, after watching Build Fighters I was recommended this, and have been watching quite a bit of it. I also have permission from a mod to resurrect this, as long as I'm talking about what I've seen.

Also, despite this series being around 20 years old, spoilers are still spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen the series, so everything is going to be behind tags (especially since going in blind, I got huge with a huge twist that I'll get to).

So, despite what I've heard about G Gundam and its ridiculousness... I'm honestly enjoying the series. Yes, there are things that show a great amount of inconsistency and other things that would be sub-par by today's standards, but I just ignore those and say "it was 90's stuff"

Now, having just finish Build Fighters before I started this series, it was a rough transition as we're introduced to Domon Kasshu, and the first five episodes just introducing our main cast
Spoiler for Introductions:


When it takes until episode six to actually hit the plot... well, at least we got to the actual plot of the series.
Spoiler for Plot... then Monster of the Week.:


Next is where the major arcs kick in. I originally was going to call this the Master Asia arc, but I instead call it the Shinjuku arc, parts 1 and 2.
Spoiler for Shinjuku, part 1:


Now, let me reiterate: I had no knowledge of G Gundam, which leads into this...
Spoiler for Shinjuku, part 2:


This is a 90's action/shounen series, so naturally there has to be... a Training Arc! At least I have yet to hit a Recap episode.
Spoiler for Training, part 1:


And so the first half starts to build to a climax
Spoiler for Traing part 2, and climax of Part 1:


And so that brings me to where I am currently: episode 24.
Spoiler for What I remember of 24:


And this is why I've necro'ing this thread instead of reviewing... I'm only halfway through the series, and will probably keep posting as I see the episodes.

Magin 2015-12-10 02:12

So apparently I guess I'll be the only commenting in this thread... but at least I'm seeing views. I guess that's what happens when you're 21 years late to a series :heh:

anyways, just watched the next two episodes...
Spoiler for 25 + 26. And about not seeing a recap episode so far...:

I actually like to comment, just like how I responded to Haak’s necro-ing Turn-A Gundam thread with his episode reviews. But the thing is, it has been so long since I watched G Gundam that I forgot many things about (of course, I still remember Shining Finger, the MC and “This hand of mine…..!!!!”). But I’m planning to re-watch the series when the BD is finally released and I want to make the most out of it so I let my memory about G fades away little by little so that I’ll enjoy the re-watch even more (that’s why I didn’t click your spoilers). :D

Magin 2015-12-10 02:58

Assuming that one isn't out already, is there actually going to be a BD release of this series? Obviously there's DVD releases... but you'd think that after 20 years this series would have a BD release by now.

... and while I spoiled myself a bit (not saying about what), I can see myself re-watching this series every few years. It's certainly a bit ridiculous, but so far there's no war drama involved (there is other types of drama instead)

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2015-12-10 03:17

^ As far as I know, G Gundam BD box hasn’t been released yet. I’d say Sunrise/Bandai will eventually release the BD of all the Gundam series. After all, if the much-maligned Victory Gundam got its own BD release, there’s no way they’ll skip G Gundam which is a relative success in the franchise. But the thing is, Sunrise/Bandai really like to take their time in releasing each series BDs. Usually because they actually put a considerable effort to remaster & cleaning up the footage of the old series so that it’ll be a more presentable high-def presentation (Zeta, ZZ, Victory and Turn-A in particular are gorgeous in HD). And they even put more effort to add something new with each BD release (eg. brand new extra episode for 08th MS Team, Frozen Teardrop picture drama for Wing, Gundam Frag CG footage for ZZ etc). And IIRC they released Gundam 0083 BD only recently despite that series’ popularity. So yeah, I think patience is virtue in this case.

And so for the next episodes, as the tournament continues...

Spoiler for 27+ 28:

Spoiler for 29+ 30:


Spoiler for The preview:

Magin 2016-03-12 00:58

okay, so almost three months between posts... though more G gundam! I can understand why G Gundam gets ridiculed (being the first non-war Gundam series, plus how it really pushes the envelope of suspension of disbelief), but I'm still going to have to recommend it to anyone who likes shounen anime. Anyways, the episodes:

Spoiler for 31-33:


Spoiler for 34- 36:

And 37 is the latest one I've seen.
Spoiler for 37 and sai Saici:

Magin 2016-03-20 19:07

And the next one up is of course, the Argo episode... but with an interesting twist
Spoiler for 38:


The next couple episodes are what I believe to be a brief interlude before the final arc kicks in...
Spoiler for 39+ 40:

wissenschaft 2016-03-20 22:08

To be fair, G Gundam is the only Super Robot show in an otherwise Real Robot franchise. The ridiculousness of the show goes hand in hand with Super Robot tropes.

Magin 2016-03-21 17:11

Sadly, I'm not familiar with most Super Robot stuff- I don't think SRW has even made it to American shores. However, despite these tropes, I can't say G Gundam is really a bad series. It certainly laid the groundwork for Build Fighters.

Global Sword 2 2016-03-23 04:30

either Tomino is somehow a fan of this series as the Turn X even had the Shining Finger attack, the Destiny Gundam's 'Palma Fiocina' was close enough but its shown to be more of a ranged weapon instead of being just melee.

Well the Shining Gundam has an attack called Shining shot(can't remember if its from the palm or the forearm boosters) while God/Burning Gundam definitely has a ranged variation of God/Burning Finger(SEKIHA!).

Actually Model Suit Gunpla Builders was the one that actually laid the groundwork for GBF. Sekai was just aping Domon.

And SRW definitely made it to the west. SRT/SRW OG1 and OG2.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

brightman 2016-04-19 22:22

G Gundam had some nasty DVD transfers and was generally neglected for the longest time so it's good to see a BD release finally

OH GOD YESS!!!

Been waiting ages for this, and it looks gorgeous. It's nice to have a confirmation after so long. I can finally started my re-watching of this silly-epic show soon :D:hyper-^v^:.
