I started watching Turn A Gundam yesterday, trying to slow watch it, so 1 episode yesterday and 1 today. It's definitely a weird one, apparently not super popular with the fans, but I've read good reviews of it, which made me think it was one for me. It starts with three kids landing in a mobile suit and then going their separate ways into a world that is sort of Victorian, sort of industrialized... with airships and prop planes and old looking cars, but still horse drawn carriages, I guess it's kind of steam punk but a lot more restrained in the technology and style.
This was the last Gundam series done with traditional cell animation so it's still got that bright, hand-drawn, style that gives it so much more warmth than digital animation.
