I then came into Gundam ZZ hoping that its comedic and relaxed attitude would give me something to look forward to, and it delivered. A big reason why Zeta became tedious and ridiculous is because things are supposed to be very serious but the "grown up adults" make dumb decisions all the time. ZZ is centered around a group of irreverent and cynic teenagers, and even though their decisions are simplistic, they are usually smart. I can confidently say that now I like ZZ better than Zeta, and the former is arguably a better product than the later.
Finally, Char's Counterattack is a confusingly written movie, but it has tremendous production values. In conclusion classic Gundam has some neat ideas and concepts, but the writing is generally weak. Although, I remember the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam being well written and thought out; I plan to rewatch it in the near future.
