I've found the first few episodes out so far up on YouTube. The subs aren't exactly the best, but you'll get the idea. Good enough for now until better official subs and possibly dubs are released.

I've only seen Gundam Wing since that was on Toonami when I was growing up. There seem to be so many different stories, I'd love to check some of them out but I have no idea where to start! Thoughts anyone?

For me, Gundam Wing was a pretty good start. After that, I'd recommend G-Gundam, then the original MSG once you've developed a serious interest in the storyline enough to keep your mind off the ancient animation (although I love it!). Then I guess you can fast forward to the Seed/Destiny seasons and maybe 00. That's essentially been the track I've taken and it's worked out great.

Are all the Gundam series also available as dubs? I know MOST dubbed anime is garbage, but given that Gundam was back in the heyday of animation, and I know Wing had solid voice-actors, I imagine it wouldn't suffer like say ...Naruto does? I'm in the last 10 episodes of Gurren Lagann now and unfortunately subbed just takes up too much of my time unless I watch it during meals, I need something I can listen to in the background; which given that Gundam stuff is also fairly political - again, Wing was or at least I remember it being - so action isn't a huge deal to me for this stuff.

I believe most of them are dubbed. I know for sure 0079, Zeta, 00, Seed/Destiny, G Gundam, 0083, 08th MS Team, Wing and Unicorn are. The dubs for them are all pretty good too.

Sorry to revive an old thread, BUT, having watched Gundam Wing/Endless waltz as a child, I always regarded it as an awesome series but...never understood it. I have a friend at work who is into gunpla, so I decided to hop back into it, starting with my favorite mobile suit of all time--TALLGEESE! So, I decided to finally watch MSG which I thoroughly enjoyed, followed by Char's Counterattack, which was a great closure to that story. I began 0080th, but decided to re-watch Gundam Wing, and while the voice acting/acting was cheesy, I thoroughly enjoyed it even more since I could understand all that took place. Interest parallel b/t Amura/Heero and Char/Zechs. I plan on watching Endless Waltz again, but I want to either continue 0080th or start Zeta.

Currently building a MG Tallgeese II, and eventually a RG RX-78 and Char's Zaku II--then last, my HG Mercurius x Vayeate set, which I'll go all out on.

Glad to have found this old thread :D

This show was a staple as a kid, I also remember not really understanding what was happening. I did appreciate the incredibly massive, epic seeming world.

Just found this thread. Huge Gundam/Gunpla nerd here, heh. Ever since like many of you saw Wing on Toonami.... but it was 8th MS Team and Stardust Memory that truly made me a lifer. Seen most the animations, read a lot of the manga, build lotsa' tiny plastic models of large, metal af military machines.

Y'all pumped for the new movie?

I remember Wing, but also G Gundam back when they were broadcast on Toonami. It was so campy, but it had its moments.

I started with Wing on Toonami as a kid as well. Also didn't understand the story much but still loved it. The only other series I watched fully was 00 in high school and it was fantastic, highly recommend. I've been meaning to watch Wing again and maybe try some of the others.

As for Gunpla, I pulled the trigger back in 2019 and picked up an MG Exia kit from Gundam 00. Also got an Armored Core kit of White Glint, which isn't Gundam related but it is a fucking cool giant mecha.

I am wanting to watch MSG: Thunderbolt after just finishing MSG: 08th MS Team. I love that one!

I recently bought a conversion kit for the Tallgeese I that will turn it into a MG Mercurius and Vayeate. It's going to be epic!

I'll need to check out 00 and Stardust Memory; so many that's hard to choose, unless you go by UC or AC.
