Were there any then :P. I liked the Anime (Seed, Seed Destiny, Zeta)
I didnt know the gundam series is considered to be seinen O.o"
i've seen the anime for gundam wing, some of g gundam, and i own gundam seed. seed is actually my favorite anime. i also own some of that manga.
Same here. I am surprised to see Gundam here myself even though I dont watch/read it.Originally Posted by Zenith
seen most of the gundam series i would say gundam seed and victory gundam are my fav
thought gundams are mostly shounen
i don't read the manga but i do watch the anime..gundam seed destiny..so far until episode 32..
what i don't understand is
What is Gundam about? Will somebody give me a premise, please?
Well, basically boy jumps into Giant Robot, fights ensue, etc. Something about human colonies rebelling from Earth. There's a whole intricate timeline and stuff, but exactly *how* it clasifies as "seinen", me know not.
Most likely, this thread was started in this particular forum by mistake. I suggest it be moved. Pronto. A la voz de ya. (<- actual Spanish in use by actual native Spanish speaker alert.)
In a few hours I should be able to post my translation for chapter 1 of Mizushou so we can all bask in the knowledge of what constitutes "adult-oriented manga". With seishun. Right, Taylor?
right . moves to different area
Okay, returning back to topic. Carry on, Gundam fans, if any of you're out there.
Basically the idea of Gundam is the idea of giant robots beating the crap out of each other. They're basically supposed to be future military technology and is the story of war using these robots. There are several different animes for gundam such as Gundam Wing, G Gundam, Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny, Mobile Suit Gundam 08 (i think that was the number) and there might be a few more i'm not remembering. In some of them the gundams battle as far out as in outer space. Gundam Wing, and Gundam Seed are two of the more popular gundam series, both of which involve humans living out in outer space in what is known as colonies. In both series there is eventually war between the colonies and the Earth as they battle over something. If you like mech anime, then you'll probably like the gundam series. (Note: while there are different animes for gundam, none of them really have any connection to each other. With the exception of Gundam Seed Destiny which is the continuation of Gundam Seed.)Originally Posted by Gold Knight
Oh, I think I know the robots you're talking about. Reminded me a little of Transformers.
And I've just added your premise to the first post.
I'm a BIG fan of gundam i've seen almost every incarnation of it. each series has it's own special charm!! and watching them in the correct order helps because each universe has alot of history!! Uhh.. i don't know what seinen means but, it sounds like it's giving props to Gundam!!!! Gundam is one of the great animes!!
p.s. Always remember to watch animes with original Japanese voices and subtitles(english voice-overs are ghey), except for Gundam Wing english voice-overs that was more than tolerable!!
