I have always liked the Turn-A, but I gues what I am upset about is the
persistance on this ML that the design really sucks. Okay, initially, I
may have pushed thatthe design was good, but i stopped before long. As for
the design is terrible in the eyes of most, who cares? As far as I am
concerned, despite the series is named after the MS (resumably) the MS is a
*tool* of the series/conflict, not center of conflict,and this is something
I think Tomino has tried to push. If I recall correctly, someone on the
list mentioned that in the original series, Tomino wanted to push Amuro as
the hero rather than the robot.

Well that is an interesting point. I like the design, I am enthusiastic
about the series, and I was initially worried about the survival of Gundam
when I first read this point. But now I am not, I am very sure there are
many people that will embrace this series.
