    Somone on facebook was talking about watching star dust memory and that it was good but no zeta. I wanted to say I preferred it to zeta becuse it didnt have any stupid young people making idiotic decisions and was cool and all since it was like gundam top gun ...also gato is :cool:

    walking straight into a federation base and stealing a gundam with ease:awesome:
    Stardust Memory managed to divide opinions at Aberanime too; apparently it was shown before I came to uni, and was so popular the committee decided to show it again a couple of years later (my first year).

    I only went to a few of the screenings part way through the series, because they showed it on a Monday and I usually went to card society, but it seemed alright even if I didn't really know what was happening. :o: But the moment it came on at least half the members walked out, leaving just the committee, myself and about two other guys. :s: A lot of them waited outside the room on DS/laptops, and came back in just as Stardust Memories ended so they could watch the next show, disrespectful tards. :pierre:

    :eyebrow: I dont really see what part of it people could have that much of a problem with

    it all starts off ordinarily enough but built up to something of a great scale like in one of the big main series despite being much much shorter:love:

    I liked them both :yep: the soundtrack had a great early 90s/80s charm to it :giggle:



    oh yeah that reminds me ...zeta had none of that :huff: unless Jerrid's hairstyle counts

    It's a requirement of sorts to have seen Gundam 0079 and 0080: War in the Pocket to fully comprehend and appreciate this OVA series. I'm assuming those who left hadn't and/or are adverse to the Gundam of old.

    I remember wing as a child, rewatched them all recently and they were awesome. Best line, Hiro to Relena at the start of the series, for little reason, "I'm going to kill you"

    Quite a memorable scene, if not particularly interesting. :giggle:

    If you're referring to unit, it's extremely difficult. Offhand, it's probably a tossup between Dendrobium Stamen, Sinanju and the Alpha Azieru. More recently, the Banshee. I'll admit to liking the Strike Freedom as well. :tongue:

    Igloo isnt particularly good :erm: the characters are very bland but its nice to see some zaku action :drool: ...ok its only like 5% of the OVA :s: and the first one showed char's zaku:zomg: so you thought there'd be more ...but no he just appeared gave a morse code message and then it ended :hmpf: and he didnt show up again.:dry:

    in a way the characters are just too overdramatic to be believable at times:mmm:

    I liked the recap of UC events so far but these new guys... oh the poor Argama to be plundered by these silly children :sad:

    Many Gundam UC fans like to think ZZ-Gundam doesn't exist (I know ghostlighting in particular hates the series with a fiery passion). Its not a great series if you attempt to take it seriously, best advice is to just laugh at it - otherwise you will hurt your brain XD

    I think that opening was a big hint i shouldnt take it seriously :giggle: a friend asked whether it was supposed to be a joke and i told him its supposed to be more enjoyable if you assume it is :mmm:



    this 4th ep was pretty stupid :mmm: the blue guy attempting to flirt with fa :lolwut:

    I like how this one zeon/axis guy seems to realise how stupid everyone is :laugh:

    I'm hoping to start on Victory soon - AJ passed it on to me, which is why I'd go with that rather than '79. Any comments? :3 Do people like that one?

    Previously - and I can't believe there's an oldschool thing that I've seen more of than AJ, but then again, Aberanime's History of Mech was sort of my project - I've seen Wing, 08th MS Team, War in the Pocket and Turn A. I guess I'd probably say I thought War in the Pocket was the most enjoyable out of the four, though for the simple fact that Turn A is longer and more complex, I'd call myself more of a fan of that. Also, come on, Yoko Kanno, an upbeat theme, Little House on the Prarie stylings and oodles of crossdressing. I don't get why that one gets so little love. :P
