This is actually one of the earliest Gundam shows I've ever seen. Like most I went "Wha..? But I thought Gundam was..." At the time I was hooked on Macross and the 0083 Movie, (yes and Wing too) so the whole thing seemed dumb. Then all of a sudden a friend of mine (one who watches Anime regardless of story, language or anything) brought home a whole lot of G-Gundam so I started watching. I don't really speak Japanese, but the sheer simplicity of the first episodes along with uniqueness of each character really made the show (as Richie said) fun. This show is so different from Gundam, it doesn't touch on the common elements (like war and youth) unlike every other Gundam show, but it all feels right. THis is a Gundam show, a weird and fun one, but a true Gundam nonetheless (IMHO anyway).
