“Gundam” was the giant fighting robot franchise before “Transformers” was ever a thing. Created in 1979, the series has gone through various iterations. Of course, the meat of the show is saber-wielding machines. However, its plots delved into many complex social mores.

The first season—“Mobile Suit Gundam”—follows the conflict between forces on Earth and a developing colony in space. It was essentially a war drama involving fantastic weapons. Likewise, the more recent “Gundam Seed” explores how genetically enhanced humans deal with their naturally born counterparts. Michael Bay sure never got that deep.    

#BebopForever

The epithet most closely associated with “Cowboy Bebop” is “genre-bending.” The one-time series was part space epic, part western noir. Viewers get a taste for this feel right off the bat with its opening credits, which contains one of the greatest themes ever composed. 

#BebopForever

The story follows a band of bounty hunters getting into various hijinks around the universe. Sometimes it makes you laugh, sometimes it sucker-punches your heart. It’s also widely acclaimed for having one of the most perfect endings to a show. The movie, too, is considered a faithful extension. Here’s to hoping the live action does the beloved anime justice.
