The Gundam Universe

The Gundam Universe

I am NO expert on any of the Gundam universes, but I have scoured the internet over many, many sites to gather all this information to accomplish my goal for this year, which is to watch ALL of the Gundam titles I can get my hands on. I hate trying to look at all the information on all separate pages so I'm making this to have all the information in ONE spot. If there are mistakes or missing series leave a comment and I'll revise. It's a big Gundam world and it's a little hard to wrap the brain around sometimes. (Especially when you haven't even seen any except Wing).

There are 7 different Universes that make up this giant franchise. Each can be watched separately from the others. There is no "perfect" way to watch them. If you want to be old school you can start from the very first one made (Universal Century) and go from there in a semi chronological order airing wise. I included the year aired to make this a little easier. The way they are listed in each time line, is the order they "should" / "suggested" to be watched in.

Here we go!

- Mobile Suit Gundam 00 S2 25 eps (2008-2009)


Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Movie (2010?)


- Gundam Evolve 15 OVA (2001-2007)

This series are shorts that span across all the Universes. So I would suggest watching after you have seen all the other Gundam's.

(Once I watch it I will be able to fill in what episodes go with which universe)

- Superior Defender Gundam Force 52 eps (2004)

This series is separate completely but makes references to Universal Century, Future Century, and the After Colony time lines. So best watched after you have seen those ones.

(Totally looks like it is aimed at kiddies as well so be weary)

And finally here's a list of random deformed specials that go along with each of the listed series above. They are chibi gundam's and generally extras to be watched after you have seen the series they relate to. (I assume). I believe there is more than I listed here but I can't 100% confirm right now.
