But, no Gundam fan can or should say Turn A's not Gundam, until a fan
actually sees the show from beginning to ending. Turn A itself my barely look
like our normal opinion of what a Gundam should look like. But nothing can
truly be said about Turn A until the end of Turn A or when one sees enough
episodes to justify that Turn A is not Gundam. We can judge Turn A's mecha
designs, since the Turn A mecha desgins are final. The show cannot be judged
as unGundam on 4-8 Episodes. Gundam Wing got better after the first 8
episodes. Turn A sounds like an excellnt anime. I don't want an arguement
from this, just had to say that. Besides, from what I have heard, Turn A is
doing excatly what Tomino wanted, to turn Gundam inside out and redefine what
Gundam is.
