    Default I want to start Gundam, but where do I start?

    I remember watching Gundam on Toonami and all that when I was a kid, and definitely remember enjoying it. I want to go back and watch it from the beginning. I do realize there are numerous spin offs and all that, but if I just want to start from the get-go, where do I start? Is it just Gundam? Gundam Wing? I am not very educated when it comes to this series, so... Thanks though!

    Start with the original Mobile Suit Gundam (aka Gundam 0079). Then watch your way through the rest UC (Universal Century, the original Gundam timeline) Gundam series.

    Once you've got that out of the way, work on the smaller timelines.

    I would recommend Gundam Wing simply because it's my favorite but if you really want to understand the Gundam universe, I would recommend the original, Mobile Suit Gundam. I haven't watched it myself but the majority of Gundam takes place in the Universal Century calender system and Mobile Suit Gundam is where it all started . The only UC series or mini-series I've watched was Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team and I really enjoyed it. Don't start with it but you should definitely check it out at some point.

    To be honest, I haven't actually finished 08th MS Team but the episodes I've seen so far are great. What I like about it is that it actually feels like war and is a realistic series.

    Yeah I'd have to agree with everyone that said Gundam Wing.

    Alright cool, I will check out Mobile Suit Gundam first, just to see how it all started. Now, if there a thread or something that explains the whole Gundam timeline? I was looking on Wikipedia at the Gundam page and saw that there are quite a few different Gundam series. Thanks guys...

    As long as you don't start with Seed or SD you are off on an alright start. If you want an easier to start with space opera mecha series you might want Macross.

    Feel free to watch either the trilogy or the TV series. The trilogy is the official cannon though. I also recommend playing some of the games such as Blue Destiny, Giren's Greed, and some others

    Make sure to watch War in the Pocket too. It's a mini-series that I wrapped up in one night but it has a touching storyline, superb action(there aren't many) and it gives great insight into the One Year War.
