If the admins/mods would rather this be split up into seperate categories for each show, just let me know and I will change this to a specific one. But it seems to be more effiecent to do them all in one. Anyways, if you are a fan of one, you usually like most of the other Gundams.
Welcome Gundam Fans!
Gundam Seed (2002, 50 episodes)
The confrontation between the Earth Alliance (Naturals) and Zaft (Coordinators), which originated in economic friction, reached a stalemate. Ultimately, the two sides opted for the last resort of diplomacy - in other words, they went to war. Our story begins roughly a year later. Heliopolis, a resource satellite belonging to a neutral nation, is suddenly attacked by a Zaft mobile suit force. Their goal is to seize the Atlantic Alliance's newest Gundam mobile suits, which the Alliance has produced here amid total secrecy. The raid is successful, and Zaft captures four of the Gundams. Kira Yamato, a student at an industrial college, is drawn into the conflict when he is reunited with his old friend Athrun Zala. Tragically, Kira finds that his comrade Athrun and the other Coordinators are now his enemies. For patriotism's sake, Athrun sets out to defeat Kira. One against four... the battle of the Gundams begins!
Gundam Wing (1995, 49 Episodes)
It's the year A.C. (After Colony) 195. Over the past century, humanity has established a number of space colonies, giant wheel-shaped constructs that are home to millions of people. These colonies are grouped in clusters at the five Lagrange points, areas of relative stability in Earth orbit.
For decades, while the Earth's surface was wracked by war and civil strife, the peace and quiet of the space colonies presented an attractive alternative for war-weary settlers. When the terrestrial wars ended, a new world government was established, a "United Earth Sphere Alliance" committed to bringing about peace through force of arms. In the name of peace and justice, the Alliance seized control of the colonies.
Under the pretext of restoring order to the colonies, the Alliance staged a second round of military intervention, using humanoid fighting machines called mobile suits to crush all opposition.

If you want any others added I know there are more out there. Just tell me the title and I will do the rest. :)
Anyways, if you are a fan of even just one come and join. Gundam series have been some of my favorite for awhile now. They are always full of lots of giant robot goodness. :cool:
I have an idea for a rank system if everyone wants to do one, but if anyone has an idea it would be welcome.
Here is the official banner of the club for the moment. If you are able to make a better one, or just another one feel free so we have some variety. ;)
