Well, I decided to make a UC/AU thread since Destiny is over and not many conversations are going on in there. So I decided to make this. Discuss on any UC/AU series.

I say one of my favorite series has to be 8th MS Team. Since it focus on just a regular military solder then a super ace pilot with a powerful Gundam. Even though the last episode killed the series. Once again the Gouf kicks ass!

Zeta Gundam is great, tho thats the only UC series I have seen, I feel in love with it, I even cryed during the last two eps. I think it could have finished much better than it did, It kind of just ended.
I also love Wing, that was a really good series aswell.
I havent seen all of Seed and none of Destiny.

Im planning on buying Mobile Suit Gundam, and ZZ Gundam soon, and if I find any others to get, then I will.

Hey, I'm haven't been updated on UC for a while. But I read a lot of news that Zeta Gundam the movie is out in Japan? Is it like a remake of the original, but they enhance the animations and make it look like a movie? There are 3 movies, is it like the Mobile Suit Gundam DVDs when 1 DVD has like the first 20, the 2nd has the next 20, and the 3rd has the rest of the last episodes?

I can't wait til this is either released on DVD (meaning I will actually buy it since the Zeta TV boxset is way overpriced)... Interestingly enough in the 2nd movie they have already made a huge change to what happens to one of the characters...

I've seen almost everything. Only exceptions are victory, f91, and zeta. All of which I want to see. I didn't include seed destiny because it was too much of a disappointment, I'm not even going to watch it. Seed sucked imo.. but I'm a hardcore gundam fan, seed and destiny are complete garbage compared.
Wing was the first attempt at seed, an alternate universe which was intended to go on to be the new UC, but just didn't work, although I didn't like it as a gundam series, I thought it was a great series.
Turn-A-Gundam was great if you know what's going on, Tomino's last work.

I consider ZZ apart of the zeta 'saga'.
Last I checked, Turn A was the last series made besides seed, and he had no part in that.

Seriously, a lot of people I know rather watch SEED then the older UC series because it looks newer and the girls are hotter blink.gif . I mean I read morons on other forums saying that Gundam SEED Destiny's story was unique and original even though it has some Zeta Gundam similarities. Fukuda even said so himself that C.E. is the newest UC, but some ignorant people keep saying they are hardcore gundam fans even though the only Gundam series they seen were on Cartoon Network rolleyes.gif.

^ Word agree with you Legend i myself am a hardcore SEED fan and SEED is in fact my fav series but i know that there are better ones out there that i havent seen yet.

My friend Phillips watched every series already hes verdict still remains the new series have nothing compared to the original UC series they lack the skill to include an even mix of drama, character development and MS action.

I know people that have seen wing or seed thinking it was the best thing ever, and upon seeing all the other series, just gave up on the other. Then there's some weird people that continue liking seed or wing a whole lot afterwards. laugh.gif

After nearly finishing Gundam ZZ, I am starting to lose faith in UC stories...

I just hope that Victory Gundam can restore my faith with its Char-descendent main character...

LOL, maybe you should put in some logical support on why you think Wing is the best among Gundam series.

I haven't seen ZZ, but I heard the series was a let down because it was mostly a non serious Gundam series compared to the dark Zeta Gundam. I heard Victory was very good, but I haven't seen it yet.

I agree.
Wing was good, but unless you actually saw all the others, you really wouldn't have said that. With that said, have you actually seen anything else besides wing?

Well it's not that ZZ is not serious, cause it starts getting there after around episode 34... But it definetly is a let down in terms of how it ends... Not going to spoil anything here...

But would have been great if the rumoured changes that Tomino had planned had come through...
