I lost interest in Gundam after G. Between Gundam Wing's high-class production quality and G Gundam's over-the-top ass-kicking, SEED and its ilk don't offer much to interest me. The obvious romance between candyfied lead characters wasn't cutting the mustard, and the action wasn't memorable. The only thing I remember from that show were the oddly drawn faces and the pink-haired princess with a round robotic Furby thing.
8th MS Team looks [tornado fang]ing awesome, though, if the intro is any indication.
Should I watch it?
So anyways, back to Battle Network: I remember really enjoying the anime when I could get to it. I lost interest after I couldn't see the next episode for a while, but I didn't get that far. My favorite moment is still Lan getting elbowed by Mayl. She doesn't just do a casual elbow with one arm; she puts both arms into it. Nicely done.
