So when is Bandai's lazy ass going to put up Zeta's dub on YouTube?

What bullshitary is this?

I want to watch Zeta gundam.
Not a preview for Dante's Inferno every ten seconds.

No, due to licensing issues and Sunrise's demands, there won't ever be a subbed version of the original over here

Today is a first of February, and I can't find anything on YT about Mobile Suit Gundam. However, on ANN there is available Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, but only one series. I wanna original series of MSG! ;[

This is GREAT news for me, because the second disk of the original Mobile Seed Gundam has been "missing" from Netflix forever and now I will get to finish rewatching the individual episodes as well as the movies. I really don't remember the original gundam much since I first saw it over 30 years ago.

I've seen most of the rest of the gundam series - G, Turn A, Victory, 0080, 0083, Char's, 00, 00 S2, Seed, Destiny, F91, Stargazer, Wing, Zeta, ZZ, 0079, Igloo, 08th MS team etc. I am so hard core at being a "completionist" I am currently slowly suffering through Superior Defender Gundam Force and regressing into a 5 year old boy.

Do you think they will ever provide SD Gundam MK I, II, III and IV? I can't get hold of those anywhere else, if anyone knows where they can be found please message me. I must watch them to "finish" the gundam franchise.

And if you get into Gundam I suggest watching 0083 Stardust Memory and 0080 War in the Pocket.

Start watching Gundam, start watching Gundam... If you really wanted to start watching gundam, you would have done, and not only SEED or 00.

Besides, I think the Gundam 0079's movie trilogy is more recommendable for the newbies instead the TV series.


I was thinking the same thing actually. The first part not the second part.

Jan 25, 2010 11:04 AM by martin03345

Ohhh~ this might be a good opportunity to finally watch some of the older series.
I haven't seen anything before G-Gundam.

But...

Excellent news! Hope they're subbed though.


This =P
Although I personally preferred the dubs of both Gundam wing and G Gundam~
Probably because I saw them dubbed first though.

And I hope everyone here watches the first two Gundams, they are essential viewing.

Jan 25, 2010 5:07 AM by Beatnik

Free Gundam for the win.

Jan 25, 2010 4:00 AM by BishounenTatsumi

Nice but I wish they had Turn a Gundam too.

thats pretty nice of them, it will be nice to find them so easily

Jan 24, 2010 8:40 PM by kage-bunshin

Lol I'm still waiting for the repeated question of whether this Is going to be subbed or dubbed to be answered.

Jan 24, 2010 7:44 PM by ToxxicTeardrop

Oh. Hmm, this is pretty cool. I've always wanted to get into Gundam. I'll start off with the original and branch off from there, I suppose.

Jan 24, 2010 4:10 PM by ppizzapie
