    Default Gundam

    I've, sadly, never bothered to watch any of the anime in the Gundam franchise. Granted, there's a lot of them, but which would be considered the best? I need some recommendations. I'll inevitably see all of them but where should I start?

    I don't think you will watch every single gundam series. I think you'll run out of will power. But if that is what you want to do, then it would be worth your while to start at the beginning.

    In answer to your first question, Gundam 0080: War in a Pocket OVA is the best gundam related media I have ever seen.

    Edit: Avoid SEED, Wing and SEED Destiny like the plague.

    Super Pilot, Super Robot, God Mode...and they say Gundam are on Real Robot category... sigh.

    The only SEED that worth watching is Seed Stargazer.

    And for other gundam i recommend Gundam The Movie 1-3 (Movie version of the first gundam series), Stardust Memory, War in the pocket, Char Counterattack, F91 Movie and Turn A Gundam.

    Almost forgot Gundam 08th MS Team. This one commonly referred as the most realistic gundam so far.

    So do you guys recommend I see the original (since it is the original) and then whichever other ones are recommended?

    Heh, I admit that was a bit of an exaggeration but I do plan on seeing most of the them.

    I watch the anime for fun and i read the manga for story but both have different appeal to me...

    my recommendation:

    watch Gundam Wing, Seed and Destiny.....

    If you like campy, over-the-top super robot shows, try G Gundam. If you'd prefer more serious fair, the new Gundam 00 is worth a look.
