Either executed or rotting in prison. But the supposed sentencing was in
the liner notes, so it may be that Synapse was never tried or executed, just
um... slienced or removed from the UC universe as we all know it.

I don't know about 0083 but from my first impression of the 0079
translations, it's a doozie. Three cheers for Mark's mate Julie for doing a
superb job of the translation!

I've yet to see any other translations aside from Korean translation of OMG
and several other translations. It always seems to me that something is
lost in the translation, but something else is gained in the re-translation,
so it's a arguable point. Some just scan the artwork, and more power to
those folks...

Do you take requests? If so, I would like to request a Gundam Destiny for
mah wallpaper. :)
