It's a prequel to first Mobile Suit Gundam and is meant for people who have already seen Universal Century shows. I'd say you should see Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam, ZZ and Char's Counterattack first before watching this. Maybe first Gundam at the very least.

Depends who you ask. I personally haven't seen many people regard it as their favourite but it is pretty damn good, and if you ask me deserves the score it has.

lol, yes. you should watch this one first and watch the rest if you want. Theres a reason why this has a much better score than the rest of the franchise. the only people who will tell you the opposite are the extreme mecha fans and the MSG fanbase, and I disagree with them.

okay i'll add to my watchlist. I just want to check out anything about Gundam and this one is short and have good score. but other gundam series are old, long, and im not biggest mecha fan, would probably died watching those

I've never seen any other Gundham (and at this point don't intend to), and I am enjoying it just fine without any knowledge of the series. I am just about to start the sixth one.

This is really good.

Even as a stand-alone, if one so chooses (which I do), IMO.

I just finished this without any prior knowledge as to what Gundam is other than it is a mecha warfare anime. I'd say this anime is great, I am no die hard fan of mecha nor this series but I really like this. I tried to watch Mobile Suit Gundam, the original one but it was horrible, I could watch show like Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion but not mobile suit gundam because it feels like a motion picture so I dont recommend you to watch the old one if you are not into it.

I recommend watching Gundam 00

It is so good, and it is not related to any other gundam at all.

But yes you can still enjoy The Origin even without knowing other gundam. But there is some connections to other ones.

I recommend Iron Blooded Orphans. It's great. Has a moral. Literally like every other Gundam.
