What Gundam manga are worth reading? Which do you guys consider required reading?
Why do no Gundam manga get translated anymore?
I was planning on checking out the Crossbone stuff eventually and Feddie Hooligans but not the other one, thanks.
There are just so many in UC alone I'm almost at a loss for what to read.
Federation Hooligans is the best manga.
Gundam Legacy, Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story From Encounter in Space, Kidou Senshi Gundam Senki - Lost War Chronicles, Mobile Suit Gundam Acguy 2250 miles of North America crossing and my second favourite after Hooligans: Kidou Senshi Gundam U.C. Hard Graph - Tetsu no Kanba
The 0083 reboot is pretty rad and crosses over with a few other Gundam manga.
There's a Nanai Miguel sidestory I read a while back (forgot what it's called) that gives a lot more context to Char's actions during CCA.
Char's Deleted Affair, Zeta Define, and the various Crossbone titles are all pretty good if you don't mind idiosyncratic art styles and hit-or-miss mech design.
Heard good things about the G Gundam reboot, I've sadly not found a translation for myself though.
Seconding Tetsu no Kanba, F91 Silhouette, Feddie Hooligans, Thunderbolt, Plot to Assassinate Gihren.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Gihren Assassination Plot

The one with the chubby Zeke girl who loses weight by sweating it out in the cockpit simulator? That was surprisingly good, did they ever finish translating it?
It's a tough choice. IMO Gundam manga has never been that great. (Origin being a huge exception. Yas is amazing)
I'd say go with the 0083 manga that is running right now. It's basically doing an Origin take on the 0083 story and reworking bits so they work better and tie into other gundam projects.
This actually makes me curious what Vertical is going to do with their follow up to Origin. They have to be worried that whatever they do next won't have the same level of success.
That took some effort to find. If I didn't read it earlier (how the hell I found it then) I would think that it wasn't translated.
>did they ever finish translating it?
Yeah but it works as a sequel of sorts to other side story manga/games. Lost War Chronicles, Space To The End In A Flash, and the game Zeonic Front are the most relevent, though there is stuff related to Blue Destiny in one of the vignettes.
