Heh, Heh, Heh, Heh! I like that idea a lot. From what I have heard Tomino
doesn't want this, but I'd love to see a continuation of the UC universe,
like what happens after V Gundam, you know? I mean, if done right, a sequel
can be ground breaking, if done right. I am fed up, with everyone from anime
to video games to movies, of all this "Lets make a Ground breaking show
bandwagon" I like new things, but a lot of these so-called "ground breaking
shows/video games" fail miserably. I like Ground breaking stuff that has
substance and real innovation, not just re hasing in a so-called "breaking
the mold" way. I can't comment about Turn A's story until I am able to watch
it. Every time I look at the Turn A , I either think I like it a little or I
hate it.
