But yeah, I agree. I like it that some strong women of UC (like Haman Karn, Emma Sheen, Marida, etc) are treated with respect as in: no fanservice shots or nudity scenes of them (Newtype nude-flash doesn’t count). They pretty much rely on their characters. So far, the only “fanservice” we got from Mineva is her good looks which I find rare nowadays with the audience’s “I wanna see boobs & ass” mentality and anime studios’ “Let’s give them boobs & ass” tendency. I hope this habit continues on.

That's part of the charm of the Gundam franchise. Pretty much every incarnation (except G Gundam) is entirely story/character-driven, and it still manages to command one of the largest fanbase in anime. Bouncing boobs and panty flashes have no place here!

" Mobile Suit Gundam SEED (機動戦士ガンダムSEED (シード) Kidō Senshi Gandamu Shīdo?) is an anime series developed by Sunrise and directed by Mitsuo Fukuda. As with other series from the Gundam franchise, Gundam SEED takes place in a parallel timeline, in this case the Cosmic Era, the first to do so. In this era, mankind has developed into two subspecies: Naturals, who reside on Earth and Coordinators, genetically-enhanced humans capable of withstanding the rigors of space who inhabit orbital colonies. The story revolves around a young Coordinator Kira Yamato who becomes involved in the war between the two races after a neutral space colony is invaded by the Coordinators. "

There you go. No but, Gundam does have alot of fanservice both in terms of boob/ass shots and shower scenes, it's just not as wide as other shows, yet. UC Does keep a high standard when it comes to the fanservice, in UC's terms it shows off Mechas people get hardons from instead of characters

Hey, I was talking about sexual fanservice, not mecha nerdgasm . Also, I did only mention some "strong" UC women like Haman, Emma, etc who are free of perverted fanservice shots. I'm well aware that UC also has some intentional fanservice or nudity too (Sayla's bath scene anyone? ).

Looks like I need to work on my jokes. Sorry that you took my comment seriously.

Anyway, I think what most people like about Gundam, besides the mecha porn, is that they can still take it seriously as a proper show regardless of it being an anime, esp. the UC shows (08th, UC etc). The plot, the lore, the characters and the drama are the main driving force for the franchise and that's what I enjoy the most out of it.

Don't forget Sumeragi's jiggling boobs. Since Gundam is the only anime I watch, I admit I was a little shocked to see Fa or Four's nipples or Shinta's dick in Zeta. I'm glad they're few and far between.

I Lawl'd when the Jegan did that, I love that they're giving these random pilots so much personality through their suit mannerisms.

Sumeragi's boobs don't bounce nearly as much as Murrue's. And at least Gundam 00 evens up the playing field by including naked men.

In all seriousness I'm glad that the UC Gundam series doesn't contain quite so much fan-service as a lot of the AU series. Too much can draw attention away from the storyline. Unless that was the point all along. *cough* SEED *cough*
