    Or what a mess-up job the writers has done. She not recognizing Gato has
to be her "fatal flaw", although she has a lot of flaws...

    And she was being a spoiled brat throughout the whole movie, which
didn't help people's opinion of her one bit...

    You mean 08 MS Team, right? Personally, I felt that she is better suited
to be a nurse or something (must have something to do with the voice actress
who do her voice, who happens to do the famous role of Belldandy and Kasumi

    Although she is not a good pilot, she has many qualities that Gundam
fans found appealing among the Gundam female characters.

    She is perhaps the favorite female character in Zeta Gundam (in Japan,
of course. On the list, it seems people like Emma more.). Personally, she is
my favorite female Gundam character of all times. I just wish Bandai would
re-make Zeta Gundam, so I would see her in a better light (Zeta Gundam TV
series' animation is not very consistance...)

    I kinda like him, for his ability to play the "villain".

    Kou didn't even deserve to touch a Gundam, let alone pilot two of them.
As for Shiro, he is not suitable as a pilot...

> Just letting everyone know there is plenty of love to go around.. ^_^

    You forgot about Camille (or Kamiyu) Vidan, perhaps the most hated
Gundam "hero" of all times! Personally, I think he is a great pilot and all,
but his personality needs work, not to mention the fact that Four loves him,
which doesn't help people to like him at all...
