  So I guess, mathematically-speaking... it means "For all Gundam"! Cool!
  Hey, at least it's not an anarchy symbol.

  Crotch? GRIN. This gundam is TWICE as happy to see you!

  Snort! See, I told you that Syd was no Gyd!
  That guy is a total doofus! His ship designs blow Zeppelin, and his
mecha designs are so unidentifiable that even our very own Dayffd couldn't
tell if the guy was drawing a RX-78 or a Gundam Mk.II! Man, I already
don't like the lil' red beard on the Gundams (I sometimes cut them off
entirely!) now having the V-Fin go underneath the face like a Generation-X
Gendou-beard is going to be totally ridiculous!

  Yeek! I don't know much about anime, but I always suspected that it
takes, well, like _months_ if not years to produce the Cells necessary for
a show? Is it possible that they're planning on doing all the mecha action
as CGI instead?
