    Default Why G Gundam is so belittled as a series?

    Personally, G Gundam was my favorite series and I thought the storyline was very good and kept interest. But people ive talked to seem to say otherwise. I'd like to hear your opinions?

    It was one of my favorites too. It has a good story line, yeah, and characters. But still, I find Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed better.

    Maybe if there weren't Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed, G Gundam is the best for me.

    I love G Gundam. It's my personal favorite. The reason why it's so belittled is because Gundam is supposed to be a "real robot" anime and not a "super robot" anime. That and every other Gundam series has an anti-war message, while this one focuses more on ecology. In other words, it's hated upon because it strays from the line compared to every other series. Kind of like Macross 7.

    Yeah so in general, they are mad because they tried to go for a different strand of thought. It's not like all storylines had to share the same thought.

    The Gundam franchise has a lot of history, a lot of tradition, and has indeed influenced culture and anime heavily. As said above, Gundam invented the "Real Mecha" genre, feature realistic mecha as tools of war, that functioned realistically, were piloted realistically, and looked like realistic tools of war. Gundam has also had a heavy political bent, often influenced by political culture of the times. Gundam has never taken a solid "anti-war message", but from series to series has given reasons why war is bad, why war is good, and even why it is a horrible necessity, and why we can never truly rid the world of it.

    G Gundam was the first Alternate Universe series (the first series not to fall into the Universal Century timeline), made for the 25th anniversary of the Gundam franchise, and while its a good anime series in its own right, it's a bad Gundam series. By attaching the "Gundam" name to it, you associate it with the history and influence of the Gundam franchise, and G Gundam was simply not up to par. Rather than stressing the human element, and stressing the human qualities of the characters, and having a larger meaning or ideal behind it, it was simply a battle mecha series; it removed the maturity that Gundam had always been known for.

    Exactly. It's a common example of people not viewing an anime for what it is.

    I actually thought it was a pretty good series, considering how different the mechs were handled. Had a depressing tone at first but then it just got better and better. Still wish it was a bit longer.
    If Minecraft had a Japanese intro.

    ^ This. And pretty much what Gjallarhorn has already said as well. As an anime, the series wasn't all that bad. However, when you compare it to the other Gundam series prior to its creation, it simply doesn't come up to par and falls beneath people's expectations (at least that's the way it was with me). All that, and the 'Valentine's Day Special' ending to tie it all together at the very end. Sorry, perhaps some of you think differently, but that was a real turn off for me.

    I remember G Gundam. It was a interesting show. I understood the plot and the characters were pretty good also. I won't say it is my favorite because I guess I prefer the other gundam series but instead of war they had it in a competition. Not a bad idea actually.

    It's just not one of the better Gundam series it's my least favorite well it's a tie between G and seed destiny. I mean it was an okay anime but a terrible Gundam series I never really got into it but I finished it. The whole competition part of it kinda ruined it for me if it was about war or just a side story I would have liked it. But the super nintendo game for it is fun.
