    Personally after the first Volume i was so bored i thought about using it as a sleeping aid, but found that even if it is cruddy, it serves me a good reminder to not buy into the 'zOMG roxxorz!' shelf at my local book shop without doing research.

    I originally came upon it when reading my beloved Gundam Wing Manga's, Heero being mine and quite a few of fanfiction.net's authors favorite Gundam character (well, after Duo-Fangirls), i was amazed by something in a Character Contest.

    Heero came not 1st, not 2nd, not even 3rd.
    He came 4th, Duo came 1st.

    So i looked at who came second and third.

    Some guy called Domon from G Gundam and a Horse...

    Well, wondering what was so great that this character beat Heero, i decided it to pick up the manga, it must be good, after all, the public had spoken.

    So, this Domon is a Martial arts champ then, thats kinda cool i guess, i hope he isnt just the steriotypical badass = Damn, he is the steriotypical badass, he had a facial scar, he wears a bandana, he fights with his fists and he is the strong mederatly silent type.

    Well, thats original, i can see why the Japanese Public decided he was better than Heero.
    Yes, Heero is also a badass, but he isnt steriotypical, he is slightly pychotic, he is virtually an emotionless machine, he has no self preservation which leads to some intresting situations, he is the perfect soldier.
    He isnt 'fabulas' outside his Gundam, he is basicly an all rounder, Duo has him beat in Guns, Wufei in Melee, and Trowa in acrobatics.
    But his inticts, lack of fear of anytype, and Gundam piloting put him above all his peers.
    I also liked in the Manga he smirked and had a little burst of personality every so often rather than his plain stoic-you-know-he-feels-but-is-hiding-it-ness of the Anime.
    There was also his weird Romance with Relena were the (unintended) pick-up line had her fall for him and them eventually kiss, a incredible thing for an Action Anime.
    IIRC the kiss doesnt happen in the Manga though, guess they wanna leace it open for the fangirls yaoi-syndrome.
    Though havent read the Manga version of Endless Waltz yet, there may be as many hints in that as in the Movie.

    G-Gundam's inventiveness... well, it is a fighting tourniment that brings these Gundam's traveling to Earth, that way Peace can be maintained, well, relativly peacfully...
    And they call these battles... Gundam Fights! original huh?
    So... Domon is a Gundam pilot of the Shining Gundam.
    He also happens to be looking for someone to save his father, what an original plotline :amazed

    *sigh*

    Ah well, so i wasted ?7, what did you guys think? did you like it or dislike it, or as i did, hate it?

    I didn't think G Gundam was as good or as involved as Gundam Wing. But I thought G gundam was actually the second best gundam series. For some reason i didnt like the really old one, and i hated the little miniature gundam series...

    G Gundam is simply one of the best Gundam's out there. I enjoyed it much more than Wing and it continues to be my personal favorite Gundam series. Maybe because it didn't waste time trying to force some stupid philosophy down my throat. Domon (And pretty much the entire cast of G Gundam) always seemed much more alive to me than the Wing cast, even if they were stereotypes. Oh and it had master Asia. That made it instant win.

    I loved the G-Gundam anime. I always thought that it was funny whenever Domon added a new word to his finishing move.

    By the end of the series, it was something like:
    "Shining-Burning-Love-Sekihotai-King-of-Hearts-something-something-Glowing-Fingers!"

    You mean "Bakunetsu God Finger Seikiha Love Love Tenkyoken", or for those who saw the dub (it was actually pretty good) "Erupting Burning Finger Seikiha Love Love Tenkyoken".

    It's a cool move.

    The manga sucks as it can't convey how bad ass G Gundam really is. Watch the anime it's a much better series then Gundam Wing. The plot twists destroy anything you saw in G Wing as well.


    Also Heero is a stereotype. In fact almost every character in the series is exactly the same as Heero.

    I'm not sure, but I think G Gundam is one of those where the manga was made AFTER the anime. Usually, those manga SUCK. G Gundam was indeed a cool anime... I have the manga. It seems very rushed, and it cuts down on the cool parts of the story. Everything happens too fast.

    Still... I wasn't as intrested in the series before Schwarz showed up though... But still, THE POSES he does! Ugh! That is the only bad part about him!

    G Gundam is what sparked my interest in the Mecha genre.

    Liked the beginning, hated everything else. If I watch it again I might find it funny since when I watched it in 5th-6th grade I felt there was some Japanese superiority put in it.

    By far one of the best Gundam series, period. I will admit until Master Asia first appears, the show is rather meh. But from that point on, it becomes great. It's never meant to be a typical Gundam show, it's basically a super robot anime with parodies left and right. For what its worth, it was well made and the battle between Master Asia and Domon near the end was worth the buildup. Classic.

    I've only really liked two of the gundam series : Gundam Wing and G Gundam. Both were great.

    I watched the CN version of G Gundam (was a noob back then :p) and it was great. I loved Domon's saying, can't remember exactly how it goes, but it was like "These hands of mine are burning red..." and at the end when Master Asia was defeated, the conversation they had there was great. Can't remember exactly what it was, but I remember it was great.

    Yeah I think that's it.:) Do you remember Domon's and Master Asia's convo at the end? Man thinking about this just brings back the memories. I think i'll see if I can find those eps again and watch them, this time in Japanese.

    Also Heero was/is a badass. He self detonated his Gundam without hesitation and survived.:nod
