I have no idea if you will like it. It definitely has some issues but I did get through it.

I’ve said this too many times, but I really really really REALLY recommend the movie versions. They are just absolutely better in every way I can think of.

Started Aura Battler Dunbine. This is without a doubt just Isekai Gundam. It's good though.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time for the first time in several years, and it's somehow even better than I remembered it being. Decided to watch it because I watched Belle in the theater yesterday and didn't think it really worked, so I wanted to see if maybe I had just liked Hosoda's movies when I was a teen, to which the answer is a resounding no; his early stuff is still astounding.

I know anything post-2000 is a hard sell for some of y'all, but this is really one that everyone should watch. It's a sweet, affective story elevated by some of the most human, tactile character animation ever drawn.

Hi, no disrespect but I found the movie versions very choppy.and eventually unwatchable. I have just now completed the TV series in full and I'm so glad I did. The payoff at the end is one of the most emotional endings I've seen, and I've seen Gunbuster, Macross, L-Gaim and Zambot-3. Althrough I actually hated most of the characters, except Kai, who's arc is heartbreaking, I am now fully ready to.properly take on Zeta Gundam, I never felt that after the movies and therrfore have never progressed past ep 9 of Zeta. I saw the brilliance of 0080/0083 in the 90s and desperately wish to.connect them to the source material. Tasuke, I believe you have chosen the right path with the.original tv series. No matter how many goofy mobile armors and dumb/repititious combat scenes there are, there's always Jaburo and Abawaqu, and yes you do get average Balls, GMs and Zakus kicking some a** at times in these engagements, don't lose faith. I feel like every Salamis in this show was the inspiration for every star cruiser I would draw in my elementary school notebook in 1986, yet Gundam wasn't on tv..

I also feel like there is so.much nuance and so many layers to the OG, I will rewatch soon. The whole Zabi family relationship, I didn't fully grasp.

I also watched it last month, but as part of a double feature in conjunction with the 1983 feature. Despite them being based on the same novel and starts with a similar plot, they evolve entirely different. In the anime she primarily time travels for personal benefit and comfort, which she quickly abuses. The live action film shows the time traveling in a much more subtle way and she never completely understands what is going on. And she never uses her powers for selfish reasons neither.

Watching one right after the other gave me entirely new aspects of both films and was overall a great experience. It's easy to overlook the 1983 film due to its limited availability in the west but it is certainly worth a watch.
