Gundam Question

Recommended Posts

So if, say, I want to watch Gundam 00 do I have to watch Mobile Suit Gundam to understand the storyline or any other Gundam series beforehand? Or do they all have different characters?

Appreciate any help :)

Gundam 00 is set apart on it's own. You do not have to have seen any other Gundam to understand or watch it.

I haven't currently watched any of Gundam 00 so I can't really say but I would have to say no on default but you should watch Mobile Suit Gundam anyway because it's just awesome ;)

Okay thanks for that. Sorry for having to make a whole thread for this. You can close this whenever.

Haha. Yeah I may have to check it out. I have so many other animes on my plate I want to watch. But I am sure I will hit a lull before long and will keep this one in mind.

Here I'll post the time line I have done, and the ones you should watch together and in order, just in case you ever want to go back and watch the old ones. I'm currently going back and watching the ones I haven't seen before. I'm currently watching Zeta Gundam.

Wow awesome list Koby. Thanks a bunch :D

Well there are a couple specials not on the list.. and the re-cap movies/specials aren't listed.. but those are just the series condensed into like 3 or 4 fifty minute movies. So you should already know when to watch them.

Oh those are like the ghost in the shell movies like the Laughing Man and Individual 11? They were just recaps of their respected seasons. I kind of like all of those. They give a broader understanding if you didn't get it on the first go through.

Maybe.. XD I didn't see those.. but these movies do have a couple re-animated scenes, and maybe a few new scenes or scenes that have been altered. I haven't seen any of them yet.. just what I've heard about them.

So far, it seems to me that all of the gundam stories have been completely separate (except maybe some references). 00 is what got me into gundam, and I've got to say its pretty good.

Did you look at my post above? There is actually a lot of Gundam series that are not seperate. Mainly the first 4 Series and all the side OVA's, Movies, and Specials. Then some other series has some OVA's, Movies, and Specials or second seasons too. xD

No sir, you do not. Gundam 00 has nothing to do with any of the other storylines. Another Gundam series that is quite similar to Gundam 00 is Gundam Wing. Both have their own... universe, for lack of a better word. Also, they are a tad similar storyline-wise. there, my two cents.
