Victory gets accolades!? Where do people heap praise on Victory? As far as I can tell, it's pretty much the least talked about of the UC Gundam TV shows, and the opinion of those who watch it is quite divided. It's popularity (or lack thereof) isn't help by the fact that although it's often the most depressing of the Gundam shows, it also has some of the goofiest scenes imaginable.

It really depends. Victory Gundam is, in many ways, a bit of a departure from other Gundam shows in tone. If you don't mind a mix of the serious with the silly, then you might well end up liking it. However, it's hardly for everyone - just keep in mind that it's the most poorly rated of the UC Gundam TV shows, and that it's animation is relatively weak. However, I think that it easily has the best combat choreography, so your mileage will vary.
The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won...
