thanks. =) I do think you're right about toys and such not selling well, and
then there's the thing that Bandai doesn't seem to have a very large market
share in the US (at least, I've never noticed much of one since the power
rangers stopped being hugely popular over here- not to say that they're gone,
but I get the image that they're no longer the stars of the toy industry...)
Maybe they'll start showing the series on saturday morning cartoons? that could
be cool, but it'd most likely be gundamwing or something else new. (Turn A
Gundam in the US? now that could be interesting but sounds highly unlikely.)
Maybe some theatrical releases... <wanders off babbling>
