  Heh heh heh! Now that would be really really Kooky!
  Seriously though, it's hard to imagine what Tomino is thinking when he
gives us a show that's supposed to 'break the mold', and yet gives us a
Gundam that's so much _In_ the mold that it's almost impossible not to
expect a parody a la Gunbuster!
  On the other hand, I'll be tickled if, in Turn-A, every time the Gordam
tries another one of its pop-up gimmicks something goes terribly wrong and
blows up!
