The proportion looked weird, the arms appeared tiny and it lacked the
sleek appearance of the classic Zaku II; it has that Volvo boxiness instead.

Did you notice that nearly all their readers' letters came from the GML
(all credited as "via the Interneet")? Man, if these are the only people
buying the Viz 0079 comic, I wonder if the series will meet a premature
death, like the Samurai Spirits manga serialized in another Viz Publication
called "Game On! USA"... speaking of which, these jerks still haven't
refunded me the amount due on unserved issues!
