That is actually exactly right. But hey, I would be too, if I were given a Mobile Suit that can't be scratched at all.Not once in 50 episodes.
I kind of afraid to admit this but, I hope I'm not the only person who buy the Gundam model kits and doesn't watch the show at all.
I've got a few kits for shows I didn't watch like some BF kits
I started with the Astray Blue Frame HG as well as the Build Burning before watching any of the anime. I'd recommend watching a bit to get a feel for what the suit is designed for, but it's not necessary for a casual fan.
You're really missing out on some great series. But on the other hand, there are some not-so-great series.
Basically, @Xephix, avoid Reconguista in G like the plague.
tomino was on crack when he wrote it
The most true thing I've heard today
Also @Xephix make sure to watch G-saviour it's the best series you won't regret it
I don't even have any interest in seeing Gundam, I just go to Super Sentai for my giant robot fixins.
Something tells me you'd enjoy Build Fighters and Build Fighters Try...
I swear, if you don't watch Build Fighters...
Yeah.Anyone who wants to see giant robots mutilate each other would, too.
Super Sentai mech combat is so repetitive though. Almost every single fight is the same.
Theres tryon 3 which is about the same concept for a super sentai robot.
I see you haven't seen enough different series...
First 11 minute of Gundam The Origin V are out on Gundaminfo. Also available in english dub if you're into that.
