Like I said for the first quote, he`s an angry kid, that`s not angst. I don`t recall him whinning about his parents as much as talking about why he didn`t like them. And I`m not even gonna touch the last quote as it has nothing to do with what we`re talking about.

he wan't on vacation for the start of zz?well i go with wingdarkness'es theory that he was on crack or something.as for zeta being superior to victory,it's debatable i mean they both show the harsh reality of war but for me wether or not a gundam series is good or not is the ending,if the ending is good the series is good if the ending is bad the series is bad.so i think they might be equal.

Turn A is NOT primarily created as an action series.. That's what I feel.. In the end, it feels just so hopeless.. I mean look at the supposedly powerful moon race... Seeing a nuke and they get forzen... And the nuke blast? Has got to be the most awe inspiring point in the series... FOr once, an animation properly captures the feeling of being in the midst of a nuke blast.. That is just classic...in Seed.. If felt as if nuke blasts were nothing.... It just doesn't have that feel..

Anyway.. I wouldn't rate Turn A tops.. I like MSG better because its the original and because it doesn't have overpowered suits doing damage...

I liked most of Turn A except for the ending, Moonlight Butterfly is so overpowered that it's totally "unrealistic" and makes me feel like I'm watching a Dragonball Z-like anime. Moonlight Butterfly makes the Turn A gundam seems like it has its own mind rather than Loran piloting it, which totally ruins the show.

Such strong weapons should be given a more realistic feel, like the satellite cannon in Gundam X. It was perfectly well-done, since the Gundam cannot move while it's charging the satellite cannon, leaving it vulnerable to attacks, and it doesn't use a rather crazy concept of nano-machines destroying a whole civilisation which doesn't make any absolute sense at all. Maybe Tomino should have explained more about the Moonlight Butterfly...

I agree about MSG is great because it's the original.

If I hadn't seen Turn A, I would vote MSG as number one....but the background for MSG doesn't really allow for any overpowering MS, because humans have just begun deploying MS for....dunno, a couple decades. So everything is still very primitive.

Also, the idea of overpowering MS is one of the central concepts of Turn A - it's the destructive power of Moonlight Butterfly that destroyed Earth's civilization, and how people are going to deal with this Black History.

My top 3 would be.
SEED
08th MS Team
Turn A

I´m working my way through the UC but since I want to see it in the correct order it takes longer time to get through it.

Other Gundam I´ve seen.

Gundam X
0080
Gundam Wing / Endless Waltz
SEED Destiny

I´m watching Mobile Suit Gundam and G Gundam right now. While I like the first one pretty much I can´t say the same thing about the second one.

But i simply cant press the "delete button". Its to hard for me Well i wanna make backups but that will cost alot of money and dvds So because of the feeling for seed i simply choose that serie
The DVDs are available in your own region buy them.

If the moonlight butterfly was supposed to end the black history, they needn't have to put it in a ms. It was absolutely pointless because it's like a nuke, and putting it in a ms is pretty dumb since anyone could steal the ms easily making it potentially dangerous and made worse by the fact that the Turn A was non-newtype compatible.

Tomino was somewhat dissapointed by how depressing the ending of Zeta was so he decided to lighten things up a bit during the beginning of ZZ. At around the 20s he had CCA in development so he decided to run the show in a way that would fit with CCA.

Wow... The most popular Gundam series EVER, and still the favorite in the minds of the majority of Japanese fans is losing this poll? Geez...

I guess people just can't appreciate it (First Gundam) the same way if they start off with one of the other shows.

I think MSG is popular amongst many fans here but its not the favourite one. That and the fact that most of us aren't Japanese

I always say that Mobile Suit Gundam has to be number one, because without it there is no Gundam franchise.

Here is my ranking of the Gundam series:

After MSG,

1. Zeta
2. Seed Destiny
3. Turn A
4. Seed
5. Gundam X
6. G Gundam
7. Double Zeta
8. 08th MS/ 0083
9. Char's Counterattack
10. Victory
11. 0080
12. F91
13. Gundam Wing

Victory and ZZ are two of my favourites, Victory for it's whole "I pity the fool!" and "You didn't just do what I think you did? I'm going to KILL you!" and of course "Batshit insane" theme.
And ZZ for some of the greates characters and battles...as well as the music and setting.
"Boyah!"

can't make a ranking so here's a list!
zeta:the best characters,plot,movement,deaths,mobile suits and dark feel that only victory beats.
victory:second to zeta,has a dark feel that no future or past series can surpass.
turn-a:shows that gundam isn't a big toy commercial and tomino doing some thing new.
mobile suit gundam:good start for the greatness of gundam also has the best war feel.
0080:does the job right.
gundam x:i think this is in the top five,i'm surprissed it's not u.c.
g gundam:good drama and good ending.
wing:i see it like i see the naruto fillers,misunderstood and it redeemed it self with e.w.
zz.:good feel and did the job tomino wanted it to do.
cca:best way to wrap up the zeonvsfederation.
f91:good movie.
seed:interesting idea, ending was dispointing.
destiny,one word:crap.

I agree with you about ZZ, I own it and enjoyed it a lot. The whole vibe of the show is refreshing after watching Zeta. ZZ is a lot deeper character and story- wise than people think.

The problem is most haven't seen it or have just seen the prelude/1st episode.
