Seems like all Elans are destined to have their love ruined...THAT END CARD MANAre gundams always this depressing?
Serious answer: Mostly, yes.Like, 80% of them.
I wanna say G Gundam is probably one of the more light-hearted ones (Though it still does have some tragic moments in it).
I'll still love how Domon can kick the Suit's butt barehand lol
Wing wasnt depressing either.
Wing was plenty depressing, 5 kids getting trained to go to war with earth on their own? Getting betrayed 1/3 their way into their journey by their home? Although there was not much of a character tragedy in the actual series but their back story are not very light hearted either lol. The thing with wing is that the everyone was suffering from ppl on earth to ppl in space, so there wasn't really a main point that you can pin point to say it it was depressing.
Ppl on earth was constantly at war cuz the earth sphere alliance was power tripped, while oz was back stabbing them in the name of justice but in fact they were also power hungry. Citizens on earth wasn't living their peaceful life, they were all either fear of war or getting oppress by one of their fraction fighting. While you have ppl in space who built everything on their own, wanted to live their peaceful life but earth assassinates their leader. Going out in space putting up massive amount of space mines to isolate all the people and oppressing them while taking all their natural resource. There's way more to it then that too lol.
Its plenty tragic and depressing.
wow how could you forget the destruction of Mercury and Suleta's mothers family and friends massacre by spacians, namely Mio's dad.
Man I cry during master asia n domon
yeah when i watch G it feels weird. theres like war within two groups and was being portrayed like its light hearted.
finding out your love interest is your sister is definitely depressing and tragic
LMAO Tomino was definitely on crack
So many people died here because of that fake elan got rage and angry because that earthian died
If it's not heart wrenching it's not GundamIf this is making you sad then don't watch IBO or Victory Gundam
Petra died in aot and here in gundam
But IBO is best..only thing is the depressing part.
Seed is less depressing than IBO.
TBF a lot of Gundam series are a lot less depressing than Iron Blood Orphans, IBO just went that extra mile to see if they could
and due to the extra mile it became the most impactful anime for me, since only Akame ga kill had gone a similar route..
And that made it more memorable. As far as I know it’s the only gundam wit THAT kind of ending
It's easier to just list Gundams that's not depressing, than trying to see which ones are more/less depressing.
Lots of Characters Deaths in Seed too.
is this the 1st gundam series that you watch?
Yeah, this is the first one for me
You can watch Iron Blooded Orphans while waiting. It's a wholesome gundam. Trust me.
Hahaha wholesome. I love iron blooded orphans though. Going to watch it again rn
Iron Blooded Orphans, 00 and Wing are my top three. It was tricky to decide between Wing and SEED for the third spot.
Ah the jokes, if you want light hearted gundam go for the Gundam Build Fighters series and it's sequels. Which gives off small bits of other series lore, and lots of cameos that you might not pick up with seeing memes or the actual series.
For all it's faults Gundam Seed isn't as bad as most
But Seed Destiny you either hate or love no in between
Yeah easpically rinko and sekai sister ( ͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ °)
Ahem ogre cough*
Thats was the best one to me
if you want wholesome Gundam, watch Gundam reconguista in G. Do not watch Iron blooded Orphans for wholesomeness. Also you might try Seed and Seed Destiny. Not as depressing.
Reconguista g is meh the story dang confusing but the mobile suit design is dope tho the only problem is the story and the ballet thing
But Reconguista is bad tho... probably the worst Gundam show ever.
Agree with u but g self design pretty dope too bad no mg kit
They each had almost 3 episodes of relationship, fair enough xDif there be no drama, it just be PEW PEW! BAM!
That's usually the case for most Gundams. Example: Miharu and Kai (3 Episodes), Gahrma and Blondy (2 Episodes). The romance is only there to humanize the character before death, or else fans wont care.
Would be neat to have lasting romances though... The psycho powered girls in particular have a tragic fate 10/11
works for, me i'm still .·°՞(≧□≦)՞°·.
Sadly mostly yes 😔
I only watched like 7 Gundam shows when I started watching Gundam since Gundam Wing.
Wing the goat
I remember Gundam Wing was my very first series and I got hooked.
TBH the thing that got me into the whole mecha genre was Robotech then it became Wing -> Seed
Remember when this started off light hearted and everyone went off the deep end saying it wasn't real gundam. Well blame them, I do. This shit hits my heart strings anytime I see someone get RIPed. However....I do love it...always have...really feels alive with all the shit that goes on. Not just some fairy tale.
Yup it's always being
theres a saying:Its not gundam if it ends the way you wanted it to...
This hardly counts as depressing: try some original works from Tomino and you are in a completely different ballpark; War in the Pocket (AKA Gundam 0080) is a well-known example of this, but the original show from 1979 itself had so much tragedy that the sponsors got pissed and threatened to step out of the project (it was supposed to be aimed at kids).
Watch the 6 part gundam the origin anime. It's the best one, most mature and I guess not so depressing.
Welcome To Gundam LOL.and yeah this is the consequence of frontloading all the fluff. ALL WE GET IS PAIN NOW, XD
Remember OG gundam, the colony attack was episode 1.
Gundam mass shooting at school, 😰
True sign that Gundam went American.
