How To Watch Gundam Online
Gundam has to be one of the most iconic anime shows of all time. With dozens of shows across several timelines, great stories, fantastic animation and storytelling, it is the series to try if you want to understand at least a little of what anime is about. Today I’m going to share some of the best places to watch Gundam online.
Before you pick a show to stream, there are some things you need to know. Gundam can be taken as a standalone episode to enjoy but it is much more engaging if you follow the series from its inception, across its many timelines and universes. There is a science to Gundam and if you buy into it, you will reap the rewards.
Ask any anime fan about Gundam and they will likely say you have to watch them in production order. That’s true if you want the purist experience but there is nothing wrong with watching any series in any order if you want to. If you want to watch them in production order, this Reddit page has them all listed.
As you can see from that list, there is a lot to catch up on!
If you want to know a little about Gundam first, this website is an excellent resource that explains the timelines and universes that the series operates in.
Where to watch Gundam online
Now you know what you’re watching and in what order some recommend watching the episodes in, let’s get to the source. There are a few sources of Gundam out there. Some will carry most, if not all, the episodes while others will require you to mix and match. However you want to consume them, this is where to look.
No list of ‘where to see insert anime title here’ would be complete without mentioning Crunchyroll. It’s the site to be if you’re into your anime. It seems to carry a huge amount of Gundam content and while the categorization isn’t the best, there is a useful Newest and Oldest filter on the main page. This should let you decide whether to watch the newest episodes or watch them in order.
Crunchyroll isn’t free but you get a 7 day free trial so you can try before you buy. If you’re already an anime fan, you will likely have that account already. If you’re new to anime, this is one of the best sources of legit anime on the internet.
KissAnime is one of the ugliest websites on the internet and genuinely hurts your eyes. But it is also one of the best sources so has to be suffered in order for you to enjoy your art. There are dozens of Gundam episodes on KissAnime from early ones right up to later shows. They aren’t ordered in any way so you will need that list from Reddit if you’re to watch them in order.
KissAnime works very well and plays the shows in good quality. The downside is that you have to disable your adblocker for the shows to play. If you use a hardcore adblocker like I do, that means you cannot use this site at all. If you use a browser extension, you should be fine.
GoGoAnime isn’t much easier on the eyes but it has a huge selection of Gundam on the site. It works much the same as KissAnime. There is little categorization but the production date is underneath each entry. You can use the Reddit list or watch them in any order you like.
Select a series and all the shows are available from within the page. There is even a download option if you want to keep a signature show. Playback is smooth and audio is of a good quality so you’re well served here I think.
AnimeUltra is a new one on me but was suggested by an anime friend of mine. It has a bunch of Gundam titles from across the entire timelines and universes. This is a much better looking website that is easier on the eyes. Filter for Gundam, select a series icon and you are taken to a page with all the episodes, a synopsis, review score and the episode player.
AnimeUltra is very easy to use and offers dubbed and undubbed versions of Gundam. Even though I had never heard of the site before, from a usability perspective, this is my new favorite source for anime!
As you can see, Gundam can be taken in one of two ways. The flow through the timelines and universes or as a standalone anime. There is no ‘right’ way to watch it. Just watch it however you like. At least now you know where to watch it!
