The Gundam Wing boys are psychopaths, no doubt about it!! Heero has a death
wish and the Deathscythe's pilot thinks he's The God of Death! I mean, the
Wing boys need a doctor, not a huge Gundam! Quarte seems normal, though. I
noticed that about them killng right off the bat. The first few episodes, all
I could think is, Man, these guys are good guys with death wishes and should
be the bad guys, expect for Quarte.
