Ah, that's another subject, though. Will it sell? That has nothing to do
with is the new Gundam "Gundam" or is Tomino insane or whatever. It could
fail, yes. Star Trek failed, originally. It's a franchise now. The first
Gundam series failed. Look at it now. Many people hate the look of the
A-10 Warthog. I think it's one of the most beautiful attack ships our
military has. You never know.
