You've been on the list too long!
Heh heh! No, what I mean is, we are the Gundam Super-Fans, we WANT to
salvage the gundam Legacy no matter how ugly the Turn-A is or how goony
the story sounds. We're willing to put in the time to argue and discuss
because deep down, we all _want_ to find something likable about the show.
My concern is that the average anime fan is going to watch Turn-A until
the silly robots appear and go "Hey, this is really silly looking!" and
turn to watching "Super Angel Ninja Techno-Girls Knight-Force Zeta!"
Now, the Turn-A from what I've seen is at least animated well enough
that it doesn't look nearly as awful as the model and Syd-art looks, so
I'm not worrying as much as I used to about the new show.
