>The saddest/most depressing Gundam
>This entire fucking scene
Seriously though, Victory Gundam thread.
I really like the setting of this series, it is like medieval Europe but set in the future, and I also like the names of all of the places and colonies - Gibraltar, Macedonia etc,. And, sort of related to my pic, even though there is so much death and destruction and whatnot going on, it isn't "grimdark" or "edgy" or too serious (like some people think Zeta is), but it also doesn't feel like it is changing tones all the time like ZZ may or may not be guilty of.
I like the gang's wardrobe, it's very starving Eastern European peasant/ethnic cleansing victim-chic. It absolutely contributed to making the world feel more grimdark.
Hell, these clothes alone and Uso's constant shellshocked 'WTF is even goin on' look make Victory more of a proper post-apocalyptic shitpit than X could ever dream of.
>starving Eastern European peasant/ethnic cleansing victim-chic
/fa/ would be proud
Is nobody going to mention that fucking retarded guillotine?

>People with access to weapons and giant gundams are afraid of this
Tomino is a hack, and Victory was his worst but this STILL was the most laughable thing about the show.
Would you rather Fuala Griffon toss Bohemians out of windows?
Guillotine is metonymic for Zanscare generally being dicks and using capital punishment to control areas that... they control.
I'm choosing to believe he got it from Heinlein, who decided resurrecting public flogging was something the future OWG would do.

Sorry, I deleted the post.
I think it's because Newtypes are telepathic, so actually chopping someone's head off is horrifying for Spacenoids (people who are more likely to have the evolutionary trait) and Earthnoids (people who undeniably know their last hope is going to be a Gundam pilot who can use Newtype "magic").
the guillotine's power is that of fear. The guillotine is a public display of the mothers power of castration in Freudian philosophy. A Gundam stomping a dude would just be funny.
My perception of Victory changed once I got to the last few episodes. It went from one of the worst to pretty okay.
And damn did it make me want to fuck Katejina.

That's actually the saddest social commentary on the late UC-era I've ever heard.
Submit a report to me about why the sound of beam-rotors remind people of yellow jackets swarming a planet of vermin ASAP.
>And damn did it make me want to fuck Katejina.
But why? She's one of the worst girls in UC.
>yfw uso is wearing the V2 color scheme
Victory and Zeta are both highly overrated. They arent horrible but I think people only rate them so high because theres a lot of death. Especially in Victory's case when everything else is so silly.
Because she's a female character only matched in batshit craziness and pilot skills by Haman and Fuala in the entire franchise.
>Giving a soldier who fucked up and would have nuked his comrades to death a little beating is as oppressive as executing civilians and others to keep occupied populations in line under a matriachal cult.
Those are some nice assumptions there. I like how you probably really do think you can speak for everybody and know objectively what people think and are able to judge the series with absolutely no bias and completely reasonably.
This may rock your world anon, but i like Zeta and Victory and it doesnt have anything to do with "wow so much death so mature wow". Get your head out of your ass.
If Kamille had died I might have rated Zeta more favorably, but I guess vegetation was a tolerable second prize.
Still didn't make the rest of the series any less miserable though.
She was "interrogating" him, and by "interrogating" I mean acting out her desire to be a mother by giving him a bath that he didn't actually want.
She's in the same show as Katejina and Fuala and still manages to be more severely fucked up than either of them.
