Finding a mech-shaped hole in my heart and having loved Iron-Blooded Orphans, I finally decided to check out another Gundam show. I'm watching Seed, apparently a "remaster," and it's okay I guess. The fights aren't very interesting, the characters are pretty generic, and the art style just looks... off. Every fourth or fifth time they show a given character it seems really off-model and weird. Maybe I'm imagining it. So far it's just okay-ish.

Is there a fan-favorite Gundam series, or one that would be more akin to IBO?

also for the original Gundam timeline (Gundam 0079+), the OVAs can be watched without having seen any of the  main series, since they're all standalone stories set during the same war but featuring entirely different characters, military units and locations.

Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket (6 eps)
Gundam: The 08th MS Team (13 eps)

The fore-mentioned Unicorn and Thunderbolt are also part of the UC Gundam setting. You can watch all those and follow along what's going on, however to get the bigger picture you do need to eventually watch Gundam 0079. It's good if you can get over the date artwork.

Is there any evidence in My Hero Academia that Denki Kaminari gets stupider over time, as he exceeds his wattage limit again and again?

That's his secret, he's always stupid.

That's not my question, I know he starts out stupid, but it is probably because exceeding his wattage limit also permanently lowers his intelligence, instead of temporarily.
 I was wondering if he actually gets demonstrably more stupid during the manga's/anime's run.

I've actually never heard that it permanently lowers his intelligence, I thought he only has the short spurts of extreme idiocy when he blows his own fuses.

Yeah, but if you think about it, a power that is seen to lower intelligence during a time and his already low intelligence go hand in hand, so its quite possible each instance of extreme idiocy increases his base idiocy, and that is why he has low intelligence in the first place.

With some exceptions, quirk users seem to have both their power and an implied immunity to their own power. Hence why Bakugo doesn't blow himself up or deafen himself with his own explosions, or why Kaminari doesn't electrocute himself, or why Todoroki neither burns himself or gives himself frostbite.

I mean, it'd be a REAL DEPRESSING DOWNER of a story arc if we follow the kids through the years, and Kaminari eventually has to be permanently hospitalized for all the brain damage he's inflicted on himself.

I'll never understand why the same Internet that decries bullying in all its forms will fanboy so hard over Angry Explosion Kid. From what I remember, Bakugo's an unrepentant jackass with basically no redeeming character traits.
He's cute, that's all the Internet really needs.

Beyond that, Deku still likes him and doesn't seem unduly harmed by his bullshit, so there's plenty of room to brush it off.

That or his overloads are just routed through noncritical systems to begin with.

Kaminari can't be that stupid, he got into the top hero school and it had a written exam, didn't it? 

I think he's just stupid in comparison to the rest of the genius's there.

TBH I never saw his overloads as lowering his intelligence below operating levels, simply a case of stunning/dazing himself with the overloads, you know, exerting his body beyond its limits so it kinda shuts down and goes into recovery for a while, not neccessarily anything permanently damaging.

I would say that that's too big of a spoiler man. That's not anywhere close to where the anime leaves off.

I mean. It's in a spoiler. At that point it's on the person that opens it, not the person that puts it there :P

Every time somebody mentions Gundam, I have flashbacks to when Toonami aired the Gundam Wing series.

There was one night my oldest sister came over to visit late at night (during toonami), and we were dishing so much shit on Gundam Wing.  There was this one scene where Lady Une shouts "I NEED ZECHS!" and it spiraled out of control from there.

From that moment on, she was "Lady None", and he was "Lord Sex"

There's also hidden text.
