Yoshiyuki Tomino: One of the most respected anime (specifically mecha anime) creators in Japan who pretty much singlehandedly created the "Real Robot" genre with his 1979 work, Mobile Suit Gundam. (Real Robot=mecha shows with giant robots that are merely down-to-Earth weapons of war rather than the indestructable superheroes they were in the past... Anime that fit into this category include Macross, Patlabor, Evangelion (in a way), Full Metal Panic, Zoids, etc. The other spectrum of the mecha genre would be the Super Robot. Contemporary Super Robot anime would be Gravion and Godanner)

Also he is the one who helmed for what considered as worst anime mecha series ever done, Brain Powerd.

That's what happens when he tries to rip off someone else's work... He's much better as an innovator after all.

As is often the case with the works directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino,
many characters are killed in this story.
This anime made me feel depressed.

The first Gundam series wasn't that depressing considering the fact half of humanity died...


Actually that doesn't even really count. They died offscreen in the narated prolouge to the first episode. Oh, well.

haha, good old "mina korosu" thing, but I'm expecting a lot for the 4 final batch of V Gundam (while I damn my download limit).

I though V Gundam was slow at the beginning, but once the Shrike team demise start, the show becomes more interesting. At some point, I though it was starting to get boring in the firsts episodes

Both V and ∀ have relatively slow beginnings but both of them will get extremely interesting after a while...

Yeah the thing is, in V Gundam the NAMED characters that survive (out of 2 or 3 dozens) can be counted on two hands.

Anyway, Gundam X is even better than MSG in terms of off-screen death, since around 95% of humanity dies in that. And that series is probably the less depressing Gundam of all...

Since Eva can be considered a ripoff of Tomino's Gundam and Ideon, you can hardly call Brain Powered an Eva ripoff... -_-

Ok, compared to the other Gundam series, it isn't the worst but it isn't exactly good. I think this is exactly when Yoshiyuki Tomino tried to create a series that will merge elements of F91 with fresh insights in order to breed a new generation of Gundam fans. Well, it didn't do well on both accounts.

First of all, besides the similar beam shields and pilot suits there aren't anything else that reminds me of F91 but another Amuro Ray in the making. While this is still now, deja vu, it was poorly executed here. Frankly, the whole Angel Halo at the end is just wacked. He probably smoked way too much the night before writing the script.

I love the OP and ED though.

That's why it ranked number 4 on animax top 100 mecha series...

About Victory, I think that's it one of the best Gundam series ever, if you like stuff like Zeta, but if you fancy stuff like Wing and SEED Victory may not be your cup of tea.
And the V2 Gundam if friggin awesome.

Oh V2 alone is not quite awesome enough--V2 Gundam Assault Buster has everything a 13 year-old Gundam pilot psycologically breaking down from all the carnage around him.

If you used the search feature on the AnimeSuki front page you would have found the following.

Gundam ZZ

and

Victory Gundam

Seems all the links are currently inactive, hence no torrents are listed.

Unknown, they could come back as soon as a tracker is willing to host them. At the moment though it doesn't seem likely.

We (AnimeSuki) have no control or influence over what the fansub group does. You will need to ask AnimeSkyScraper what's happened to their torrents. I notice their site no longer is available, don't know if they have moved or if they still have a presence elsewhere.

But bottom line, it's up to you to find out. You will have to search and ask for yourself (and we provide enough links on AnimeSuki for you to do this).

I'm pretty sure AnimeSkyScraper is dead.

Anyways, boxtorrents should have them.
