simply put...gundam, gundam v, g gundam,gundam x, wing(just the mechs.)
and pardon the term destiny is just pure rehash...seed was better, destiny isn't needed, the ending of seed is enough to put kira in the distinguished pilot up there with amuro,usso,camille, domon (c'mon he is the only gundam pilot that doesnt got his unit trashed in the end of the anime.....sekiha! tenkyo god finger!!)

um, Kira's freedom was pretty much screwed at the end, its legs got shot off and was severly damaged by the end of Seed, it wasn't destroyed but had to recive some extensive repairs. If A boa quo didn't blow up the original gundam could have been repaired as well. Although to his credit, Kira for the first half of seed demonstrates good piloting skill but the later half and GSD were basically beam spaming. If I remmber correctly, Zeta Gundam was present in double Zeta as well, Judau pilots the Zeta first than the ZZ. Amuro brought his re-gz back in one piece at the start of CCA, the Ric-dias was also in one piece, there are plenty of pilots that returned with their suits other than Kira (whos suit is actually trashed just not blowned up).

My favorite is GS and GSD please dont kill me

When Flay slept with Kira to exact her revenge basically made this list

Basiacaly watched GSD to see Lacus and Kira together, without her, he might have been an early Shin Asuka

Gundam 00 is my favourite series compare to all of them now. Before it was gundam wing and even before it was gundam seed(but not destiny).

Mine is SEED, obviously. Before that, I was watching WING, but was not driven that much into it. Then Kira and co. came to kick some serious a** with their stunningly melodramatic adventures. As I love the idea of best friends being parted by war and I like the idea of "teenage drama" with big mechas, it was just a show for me. And the designs... I just had to grab those beautiful gunplas and start collecting them like a madman

1) Turn A - The last half of the series is way too epic. It has the best ending and Gundam lead (Loran) imo.
2) Wing - My first Gundam. It is an awesome series despite a plot that goes in circle
Spoiler for Wing:

3) Zeta - He is a Char!, Haman Karn, and
Spoiler for Zeta:
What more can I say?

Sorry 4tran, but you've lost all credibility when you said 00 was a lot better than G.

That series delivered, if you can get passed the silly designs it is one of the best Gundams out there, it's fresh, it's different, and it does it well. It was never meant to be a real robot show, but rather SUPER since the very start. For a Super Robot series it is hella good.

Just because he does not like the show? He wasn't demanding your agreement, mind you. And there are many others, such as myself, who agrees.

I don't think it delivered. I thought it was stupid and I felt very uncomfortable watching it. The Cantonese pop music did not help, which to me is the most memorable part of the show. And when that happens to be my most memorable part of the show, something is wrong.

I also cannot stomach the idea of Gundam being super-robot. Sure, the franchise flirted with that fine line before, but most of the time it stayed within that boundary.

He doesn't seem to like any Gundam shows...

Anyways, G wasn't stupid, it was silly at times yes, but it didn't detract from the overall enjoyment of the series. It was a combination of light-hearted, silly moments with some serious and badass moments that made it a good show. If you went in expecting something uber serious and realistic then you should have stopped at episode 1.

Those badass moments were completely incapacitated by the presence of its settings.

If I had a choice at the time I watched it, I would have.

Hey, then again, if that is a show you like, more power to you. I just could not find myself ever enjoying it, and I will probably not revisit G Gundam anytime soon.

Personally I liked G Gundam's quirkiness and how it kept me coming back each week, but it could get a little old and formulaic during the Gundam Fight of the week portions. As for the Cantonese song Men of Battle, there's a Japanese version of it as well, though personally I have no problem with it, it kind of sounds like something Jackie Chan would sing. In fact I'm pretty sure that Armour of God is where they got the idea from.

And yes that is Jackie Chan singing. And now back to your regularly scheduled ratings.

It's a bit sad since the 2307 CE setting is one of the best settings of any Gundam show - probably only surpassed by Seed/Destiny in this regard. Gundam 00 also had a number of interesting facets at the beginning that unfortunately didn't end up amounting to very much. I may write up a more complete impression later on.
You MIGHT write more later huh? Not even worthy of your time huh? How bout we just get to the truth here for those that don't know...You don't like Gundam and you never have...You say Wing was superior to 00, yet you don't even like Wing, and you think GSD is like the 2nd or 3rd best G-series of all time (Which is online seppuku)...How can any self-respecting gundam fan be bothered with your comments...Oh damn, I guess I still am...You so don't pass the sniff-test, but I'm curious in your perfect 12 Kingdoms world of Mecha, what prey tell would make a good gundam series? Not that I don't know your answer as it's been imprinted in my mind ever since the first day i even debated you, but could you perhaps verbalize TO THE FORUM YOU MOD what would be the perfect or best scenario for a Gundam show to you, so maybe they can get an understanding of why in God's name you would want to be the default face of a place that holds the Gundam name?

Psst, I would say 08 MS team, but I'd probably get my head shot off for that.

So people like GSD, a lot of people like GSD... so fucking what? Get over it, yeesh.
