Perhaps everyone is familiar with Bandai Namco’s Anime Gundam series, but quite a few of Gundam anime fans can understand the whole event in detail or know exactly the main events taking place in the Gundam universe star. Do not worry, we will help you return to the main events so that you can track and choose the Gundam ones you are missing.
With nearly 40 years of existence, many Gundam anime series have been produced, and the series does not follow each other’s content. Large numbers, diverse content, which makes it difficult for those who intend to learn about the Gundam do not know where to start. The first thing to keep in mind when choosing to see a Gundam series is the timeline it is talking about.
And in most Gundam series, as well as different timelines, it is about the war between the two sides: the people living on Earth and the people living in outer space. Asking permission to be called Earth and Colonies for brevity and distinction. The first is Universal Century. This is also the universe of the first Gundam series. Universal Century was started from the time humans can live in outer space, after building the colony on side 1.
Above are the anime arranged in the UC timeline, before each series name is the year of release. Although arranged by timeline, most of these anime have independent content. The option most hard-core Gundam fans recommend for newbies is the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. As the original series, most of the time-series concepts and contexts are included in this series, and subsequent series, whether or not they involve content, are more or less influenced by Mobile Suit Gundam.
The downside of this choice is that the series from 1979, with relatively poor current technology and quality, can be annoying or boring for viewers. If you’re not patient enough with the original series, another great option to get started with UC is Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team. Produced in 1996, so even at the same time UC79 compared to the original series, The 08th MS Team has better image quality, and content is enough to give newbies what they need to know.
