I'm not really into mecha, but I started watching the Mobile Suit Gundam (Universal Century) series with a friend recently, and have found it surprisingly enjoyable. The story and characters of the various series have been enough to overcome my general lack of interest in mecha.

So far I've watched:

  • Mobile Suit Gundam
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: War in The Pocket (my favorite thus far)
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: 08th MS Team
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt (season 1)
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin

I've recently started watching Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam as well.

I'm impressed that the series partly responsible for popularizing people fighting  wars with giant robot suits has such strong anti-war themes. War in The Pocket was especially poignant. I enjoyed it enough to buy a model of the Zaku-II FZ featured in this series, I'll post pictures when I'm done building it. The Zaku and a couple other Zeon mobile suits are really the only ones that I find visually interesting enough to consider buying as models. I want to get Char's Zaku-II and maybe a couple other variants in the future.

Zakus are meh tbh, especially the RE/100, the proportions of it are all fucked, and snoots in general are a lame design. Kämpfer and Hygogg are where it's at doe.

I finished building the Zaku II FZ. It was pretty fun, but I slightly fucked up when applying the sticker to the mono-eye. It's very slightly positioned to far to one side and there's a tiny tear. Not too noticeable though. I really wish the mono-eye component was flat rather than rounded, if it was this might have been avoided.

I also picked up the recent HG Char's Zaku II from the Origin OVA series, and a set of panel line markers.

Eh it doesn't bother me too bad.
Those are pretty cool mechs too.
