Kamille is a very interesting character, he's a boy who desperatly wants to be seen as a man by everyone, but despite that shoots himself in the foot countless times with his childish ways of doing things.

He develops very well, of all the main characters Kamille develops the most. From boy-to man-and back to boy again..
At least, that's the way I see it. Kamille is everything Shinn wants to be.

I don't think any of the lead characters were ever whiny, least of all Amuro. Some of the girls were.

Kamille is one of the most boring main characters Ive seen in a show.

Loran is definitely the most interesting. (Even though I like Kira the most.) Loran himself is enough reason for me to rewatch Turn A.

i chose Gundam seed, it has a lot of loveable characters and has a great character development. I also liked the plot as well as the mechas.. this gundam series is the first one to introduce new technologies to the gundam in years. actually i also wanted to vote gundam seed destiny, but i think that seed's plot is better., although destiny introduced several cool weapons like the multi-phase beam cannon, and the DRAGOON.. i am currently downloading TURN A Gundam.. based on the threads that i have read, most people say it is way better than seed and destiny. is it true?

If you care about plot, unmatched character development, and themes more than pretty colors, spam blasts, and couplings Turn-A is by far better...and in the last arc the actual battle sequences are phenomanal...It's such a defining anime, but if you are not open to different, older styled animation and vastly different Mobile Suit designs you may not agree...It is personally my favorite G-series...I say you should atleast watch the first 15eps to get a good feel for what this anime is really like...

Gundam Wing, the most realistic Gundam series I've seen so far. It has got to be my favorite, hands down.

Seed and Seed Destiny were well animated, but I bet if Wing had modern animation it would be exceedingly better.

Gundam SEED Destiny - fanservice, overdone fancy beam spamming light shows, and 25-minute Gunpla commercials. Can't get any better than that.

Just finish Gundam seed & destiny, currently in the middle of g.wing. What can i say the graphic in seed& desinty is def much better compare to wing. But well, those are the only series i've seen so far.

Between seed & destiny, i've to choose seed. Love the soundtrack as well (i'm listening to 'gundam seed - Find the way' while typing this)

Wing and secind half of Seed for me. Wing for its awesome, overdone, overkill and yet so cool Mech esp Heavy Arms and Wing Zero. Seed (original) back to basics 'grunt' styled gundams like Duel and Buster. Yeah, i didn't mention storyline. I never believed in storyline for gundams. Maybe because I've only seen a few universes (having said that, Seed Destiny 2nd half was painful to watch and G gundam was perfect for April fools day).

Turn A was... well... weird... You cannot watch it as a 'normal' gundam series. Shouldn't have called it gundam in the first place.

I've only REALLY followed three Gundams:

Seed > Wing = G

I did watch about 10 episodes of the original Mobile Suit Gundam and a few episodes of 8th MS Team (or it might have been 0083... I remembered that it had an 8 in it) though. Didn't care much for them...

For me I'd choose Gundam Wing first then Gundam Seed then Gundam Seed Destiny. These are the only Gundam series that I have watched so these are the only ones I like.

X. I haven't actually had the time to finish it, but because it was cut off when I was just getting to the most interesting parts. I'm planning to watch Turn A next. I haven't finished Zeta because of work, work, and more brain busting work. and it's SO damn hard to find good subs from the Philippines...T^T

Although my favorite series is indeed Mobile Suit Gundam, I chose other, because even above that is 0080:War in the Pocket, although it isn't a series, far from it, being a side-story and all, it will always be my favorite in the Gundam time line. I feel it touched base with topics that the other series were never able to, specifically that of how war affects the civilians rather than just those in the military.
