Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is quite possibly the greatest Gundam series, let alone sci-fi show, ever made. Unfortunately, too many people are put off by it's relatively old production values to give it a second-thought. This is a shame, because Zeta Gundam's story is still a powerful one, and is one of the most engaging space operas available on the market. The world of Zeta Gundam is real and gritty, not like the exaggerated and overtly-angsty Gundam Wing. To compare Zeta to Wing and proclaim Wing to be the greater series would be equivalent to saying that Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is much better than Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Episode I may look better and may be newer, but that doesn't make up for the fact that Episode V is an infinitely more enjoyable movie. Zeta is truly a series for a mature mind, one that can appreciate superior story-telling at the cost of limited animation. If this sort of anime is your thing, then you have no reason not to enjoy...
Alright, to start us off, if you want fancy production values and shallow characters, just do yourself a favor and get Gundam Wing or SEED. Otherwise, Zeta is the choice for you.
In my opinion the best Gundam series I have seen, out of 0079, SEED, Wing, 0083, 08th MS Team (this is close, though), G Gundam, Chars Counter Attack, and whatever else I may be forgetting. The characters are endearing- when the famous "kill em all Tomino" decides he wants to knock off a character, it touches you in a way that few other Animes can. When a character dies, it molds the characters around them to make them even better.
Note, while this show has some lighthearted moments, it has very serious and dramatic ovetones that might just leave you feeling depressed and moved at the same time. The mobile suit battles are fantastic, and while the production values may not be as high as SEED, Zeta Gundam spearing a HiZack with it's Mega Hyper Launcher's built in beam saber still...
I am a Gundam maniac and I have seen ever gundam series ever created. This is probably one of the best, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is a classic gundam series. I used to love gundam I saw the most of the series before they ever came to America, and incidentally Mobile suit gundam wing is not the best Gundam series, it is in my opinion the worst. Zeta Gundam has a strong plot of love and war, whereas Gundam Wing has a bunch of pretty boys running around being annoying with no real misssion. Gundam seed also has an annoying plot, because the characters wont shut up about bringing peace to the world. The only reason I watched Gundam Seed , and Gundam seed Destiny was for the Mecha. But anyway if you like Gundam Wing you wont like this series, but if you know what a real gundam series is supposed to be like I highly recommend that you get this DVD, plus it has ten episodes per DVD.
