Who's Kamille?
I didn't know that Zeta had a female protagonist.

I can't tell if this is a joke.




I planned on getting to GBF eventually. I heard Try was disappointing though.

GBF is the bees knees. It's a true love letter to both Gundam and the Gunpla hobby. It's a bit silly because it's a show about Gunpla fighting, but in a fun, charming way.

But Try is utter garbage. I have no idea how they messed up this much despite afaik having the same writer and budget. I guess there's some George Lucas thing going on where the writer is actually terrible and all the good ideas came from others on the production staff, but they all went on over to work on Reconguista (which is wonderful by the way).

There are a few fights that are fun in Try, but for the most part, there's no point in watching it as it doesn't even have the same cast as the first season.

As for why it's garbage, without writing an academic paper on it, they got a really boring main cast that doesn't really interact much at all. Everything feels lifeless except for this guy:





Who actually gets more character development in 5 minutes than the whole main cast put together does in the whole of the show.

Also they made the show 3vs3 with Try. Sounds cool. But it really means 1/3rd of the screen time for the things you like. They didn't even try (HEH) to use this to pump out tons of interesting mecha designs so they could go for that sweet sweet gunpla money. What the crap, man.

At least the music is good.  :sad:

Good to know, considering I heard it was shit from /m/ and I take everything they say with a grain of salt. There's an equally large number of people hating on G Reco that I sometimes feel it's all the same people who like both and pretend to be different people hating on both series.

I'll give Try a shot eventually, since after I plow through all the U.C. stuff I'm going to watch through anything I haven't seen until I've at least tried watching everything (even SEED...  :tears: ).

Speaking of ones I haven't seen yet, ∀ Gundam looks cool AF. Super excited for that one.

People who hate G Reco hate life itself.

I'm wary of the cgi but we'll see when I get there.

Started watching Turn A a few weeks ago and it's pretty good so far. I really dig the far future / turn of the century setting.

Turn A Turn! Turn A Turn! Turn AAAAAA!  :sing:

I hate life itself.

I read that Turn A was basically all the other timelines coming together. Not sure exactly how that's meant but it sounds super cool.

I guess you could say that, I know a few of the suits in Turn A are from, or at least based on ones from older centuries. I haven't watched many of the other shows though so I can't really say much.

I thought it looked weird at first too, but I got over it. Same with some of the other mobile suite designs, makes them feel like they're super advanced technology from an age long gone. It's great cause most of the characters in the show seem to think Turn A looks weird too.

Also, cross dressing
