Synopsis

In the Year FC 60, much of mankind inhabits space colonies which orbit the Earth. Dominance over the colonies is decided once every four years by a large tournament in which each nation sends a single representative to fight the others with a giant robot called a Gundam. Domon Kashuu is selected to represent Neo-Japan in one of these tournaments, but he fights less to ensure his nation's victory than to find his brother, who has been blamed for the deaths of Domon's parents and the disappearance of a very dangerous weapon, the Dark Gundam or Devil Gundam.

The story itself is simple and fun, and minimally engaging. I like how it has unpredictable elements in it and you don’t really expect certain things to happen. The premises within the Future Century universe where games, politics, and wars is handeled through the Gundam Fight is quite an interesting concept in my personal opinion, because I frankly think that’s how things should be. We wouldn’t have war, and it’d be pretty entertaining. But sadly, the people on earth will be collateral damage as a result.

The presentation of the culturally diverse cast is of course where the Ring ni Kakero influences come into play. Certain read more

G Gundam, one of my favorite Gundam Alternate Universe series. Unfortunately, this series does not get the love it deserves as compared to the newer ones. Although it is named G Gundam, it is in no way a Gundam at all. (Excluding the designs and premise >_>)

Gundams get into one-on-one brawls in the tournament called the Gundam Fight and beat their respective opponents one by one until they win the tournament. The fights are very super-robot-esque, with lots of hot-blooded shouting and super moves, including finishers such as SHINING FINGER! They even come with their own cheesy incantations to be recited before execution.

Well, it's been a while since I wrote another review, and yes it's a Gundam review. I'm the person who has pretty much watched them all (not all but hey, I know all the ones that came out in the USofA). Okay what you have here in front of you was the first of its kind in Gundam History. While after the release of Mobile Suit Gundam Char's Counter attack, a few people in BANDAI came up with a new concept, fuse Martial Arts with Gundam, and hence for became Mobile Fighter G Gundam. No one thought that this would work but it did. Though read more

G Gundam is an anime that is stylistically very different from most of the other Gundam timelines, disregarding a lot of the more serious and realistic aspects of the metaseries. At first, the mesh of Gundam with martial arts and silly-looking robots might be off-putting to hardcore Gundam fans, but once you embrace the show for what it's trying to be, it turns out to be pretty good.

When you think Gundam, you probably think about war and a serious space opera with minimal wackiness and very little in the way of anime-style expressions. G Gundam, for better and for worse, does a complete 180 read more

Recommendations

A Super Robot piloted by a hot-blooded male who screams his attacks. Over-the-top action paired with serious drama. Victories, tragedies, love, betrayal, personal struggles, a fight to save humanity. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cheer. Highly recommended.
Both shows have the same director and have awesome narrators, with memorable lines, such as, "GUNDAM FIGHT! READY, GO!" and "SONOTORI! KARE NO NAMAE WA BUREIDO!".
G Gundam is pretty much non-stop action. It doesn't quite have the comedy of DBZ, but if you're looking for a series that's all about the fights, this is a good one to watch.
Both these Gundam series are about hot-blooded tournament fighting, pretty much. I couldn't tell you how many times I expected Sei and Reiji to execute a Shining Finger instead of a Build Knuckle, haha. If you enjoyed the duelling and the special moves in Build Fighters, then look forward to even more kungfu-esque action in G Gundam.

Both anime take a few episodes to get off the ground, but when they do, they're pretty darned good. Remember to watch these subbed though - the English dub of G Gundam completely fails to capture the spirit of the original and is rather cringe-worthy.

Both these series are somewhat of a comedy for the mecha genre. The way the mecha are controlled is also very similar.
Super robots, hotblooded pilots, attack name yelling, all the things that make you want to yell those attack names along with them.
