I'm planning to watch this Ova series but is it fine if I start this without watching Mobile Suit Gundam? Like, are they both series have a same story or something?

Have you seen Gundam Thunderbolt's PV for the 2nd episode? It'll change you mind.


Some people are just biased against mecha and don't care and nothing will change their mind. If someone says they like moe why would you recommend thunderbolt anyway?
