Mobile Suit Gundam

Where to Start - Getting into Gundam


As a moderator over at /r/Gundam I often see folks asking how to get into the franchise and what shows to watch. Hopefully this guide will help you along that path.



If you don't have time to go through and read, it's best to pick with one of the below series:  

Mobile Suit Gundam



Gundam 0080

Gundam 00

G Gundam

Note that the above are in no order of preference or recommendation. Why I think they're four good starting points is detailed below.

If you can't be bothered as to finding out why the above are recommended, or just want me to make the decision for you, then watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam. The full series, all 43 episodes, not the movies.
