I suppose so, but I think that there's tons of background stuff to see.

But they're not really necessary for understanding Unicorn. If it was UC as a whole, then I'd agree with you.

Yeah, xD.

Also, I'm sure that in Char's Counterattack the main bridge of the Ra Cailum has a green tint (like the Rewloola in Gundam UC) and the Rewloola in CCA doesn't have a tint... is there an explanation for this? Is it a mixup?

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And it’s also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Given that Team Trinity always seemed to operate in thier group of three, was there a reason given for why Eins was mysteriously flying solo in the incident where Graham grabbed its beam saber? Where were Michael and Nena?

If you look at Eins's radar, they were in the general area, but not close enough to support him. Plus, there was no need for them to move in for support against a single flag. Once they realized that the Eins was actually in danger, they didn't have time to close in.

In Gundam Unicorn, while aboard the Nahel Argama, are Banagher and Alberto aware of their relation?

Banagher definitely not. Alberto possibly.

I haven't wacthed a single Gudman episode so I'm planning on watching Gundam now. But I was just wondering if I could just watch the compliation movies. Would I be missing much if I just watched the movies instead of the TV series or should I watch the TV series first?

You would be missing out on quite a bit, actually. It would be less confusing to just watch the episodes, since, in my opinion, the compilations were put together for people who have already seen the series proper.

I disagree. I think you can watch the movies and not miss out on too much. What got cut was: bad animation, humanization of the enemy soldiers, the battle of Odessa, the fate of M'Quve, and some of the worse super robot aspects of the show (Mobile Armor of the week, and the G-armor). Also, it's implied that the movie is canon and the show isn't.

I'm nearly in the same situation as Haak, though I've watched Gundam 00 plus 3 episodes of Unicorn.

What movies should I watch? And are they of 2000s years or before?

depends on what series you want to watch..

You could find previews or a synopsis for each series on the internet.

There are alot of pre-2000 Gundam series, so if you're easily turned off by bad animation, some of the reall old series, you might not like.

For the (and only the) original Mobile Suit Gundam, the compilation movies. Almost everything else, the TV series.

I'll go by this. I've just watched the first two films and found them surprisingly entertaining.

Ultracompact Minovsky fusion reactors.

Me too, despite the old animation which really grew on me now that I find old graphics somewhat more appealing, the first 2 movies are awesome.

Though I have a question why do big ships like White Base need small ships for "re-entring" or whatever it is called?
