I think this is both a good and bad thing. A lot of people have imported models
(like myself) and won't buy ones they already have, even if they don't know
japanese (like myself, again). However, it should make them a bit easier to
find. Unfortunately, I have the impression that the manuals will be somewhat
lacking in terms of information, like say, the MG kits booklets. I guess in the
long run it could mean much more Gundam stuff in the US and Canada, and in that
case I think everyone wins.
