Because Zeon killed a bunch of people because they felt oppressed by not treating space people like real people

What I don't understand is why this anime is considered the most influential of all time

I watched all 43 episodes of it and it feels like I watched nothing
I have nothing to take away from it
Every major influential anime I watched gave me something to take away
Instead I feel like I just ate a bunch of bland mush

I don't understand why this series spawned off so much shit

Its about the shit we put our younger generations through through war an optimism that the next generation might do a little better than we did combined with the fear that they wont. Given what I've seen from the millenials I'm pretty sure they end up killing each other over some stupid argument

Are you fucking 12? I didn't like it either but paraphrasing events is possibly the most retarded form of 'criticism' I've seen. If you're going to spend so much time writing an OP post, why don't you say something with substance?

You know when you type like a complete retard you can pick on any show like that.

Gundam is just simple anti-war message. If you liked Kai's subplot with Mahiru at least at that point it should've clicked with you.

Cameron Wilson

anti-war message

What was the message?

unless you have psychic abilities you're probably going to become canon fodder

Hudson King
Hudson King

No, you are cannon fodder in a war anyway (see how Earth Federation treated White Base), because war is bad and there is no glory in it. Jesus Christ, it's not that hard to figure it out, kids are meant to figure it out.

Michael Walker

Maybe you should watch some mecha that came before Gundam so you can see just how much Gundam changed the genre.

Chase Torres

canon

Grayson Scott

The point of that episode was to show the downside of pacifism during a war where your enemy wants to kill you. Amuro's mother had the attitude of a lot of Japanese after WWII, but she could only see things in black-and-white and could only see her son as a cold blooded killer.

Dylan Butler
Dylan Butler

Amuro was smart for shooting first, Lucas

Sebastian Powell
Sebastian Powell

how earth federation treated white base

By sending them supplies at almost every point in the series and risking entire bases to do so

Then promoting them to be part of the war and always keeping them in the back as a high quality asset and spending all of their reasearch into perfecting the gundam for the white base

no glory
Aren't they basically all hero's by the time Wing comes out

Julian Walker

David Stewart

White Base was in the middle of Zeon's territory with zero to no backup. Then they were throwing them at the front lines knowing full well that White Base's crew consists of civilians. Then they enlisted them as soldiers because if they refuse they are basically traitors because they stole army tech.

What little backup they had was Matilda's initiative.

Oh, you mean only experimental ship with single prototype of Gundam mobile suit that's been One Year War's saving grace for Earth Federation? Sure, let the civilians who have children running around the ship have it, no, in fact, force it on them.

Carson Harris

They say in the show that white base is just a decoy and to divert Zeons attention while the real army re fuels and fights the war

Xavier Myers
Xavier Myers

I'm really glad they've confirmed more episode of Origin. I hope they don't all focus on Char though.

Austin Baker
Austin Baker

It was a decoy exactly because they knew that Zeon would get out of their way to take down White Base, because White Base's crew took down youngest son of Zabi, denied Char his victory on several occasions, killed Ramba Ral and was on the front-line during Odessa Operation.

Kevin Taylor

Now go post this on /m/ so you can get better replies. Mention how you decided to watch it because of Iron Blooded Orphans too.

yeah. that's about it.

Original Gundam is pretty good. The rest just repeats the same shit ad-infinitum.

Huh? I though next episode gonna be the last one; Battle of Loum and Char visiting the brothel.

Not really,

War produces smexy robots like Nu and Unicorn

Adrian Young

I'll post a reply because why not. I shouldn't though because this thread is terrible but whatever.

Firstly, Gundam is literally a children's show, it isn't meant to be difficult to understand. The themes are relatively straightforward. Examples of good and bad individuals exist on both sides of the conflict, with the Federation only eeking out the moral high-ground due to the narrative focus and the warcrimes committed by Zeon at the start of the war. 0079 is less about the justifications or context of the war and more about surviving a conflict given the circumstances.

This is exemplified through Amuro connecting with the crew onboard White Base. He could've defected permanently, but his skills were needed to protect people that had been dragged into the war against their wishes, just as he had been. Hence the line, "Nothing feels as good as this!" in the last episode, where Amuro accepts White Base as his family in place of his distant, brain-damaged father, and his hopelessly pacifistic mother.

Second, Gundam was influenced and created in the aftermath of WWII, which is obvious. Zeon was modeled after the Axis powers, and was actually a critique of The Empire of Japan's war practices. This is not subtle at all nor is it intended to be. The hierarchy of Zeon is portrayed as noble and just which is in direct contrast to the practice of gassing fellow spacenoids and initiating a colonly drop. The OP even states that the war has killed off literally HALF of humanity. In spite of the leadership ordering and executing atrocities, the actual soldiers are portrayed in a fairly neutral, even positive light.

Third, the show has to be considered within the context of its time. It created many of the tropes we take for granted today. It even plays with some the cliches at the time, such as the main robot being created by the protagonist's father which is seen as a huge burden on Amuro.

Parker Ross

If it has all of these overlaying themes why is it still shit?

the author meant it as X
Or I can take it at face value and just say it's poorly written and badly thought out with too many plot points being forced by pure coincide

You seem to only evaluate the few episodes that are good yet ignore the other 30 that were bad

If you eat a shit sandwich consider everything about it
Not just the parts you like

also mah time
