  Absolutely right!
  And I think that's what Gundam Wing is all about, it isn't the giant
samurai-suited macho-man "giant masculine armors" that go around saving
the universe... it's in fact a group of staunch pacifists willing to
sacrifice everything for peace and unity that end up saving the day!

to the typical anime-male. (Or viewer).

  Let me guess, Shiro stops Aina and her crazy brother by using "The Power
of LUUUUVVV!", eh? (A giant glowing "Beam Heart" shoots out of the EZ-8
and blasts the Asparas-III with glowing love-energy, as the fragments fall
over Jaburo they turn into little daisys and fall over all the little
pansies down below!)

  I see... interesting, basically the 0083 time-period?
