Thanks for the info. Kota. I can't wait to see Turn A. At least for me, once
I got used to it, I like the Turn A a lot and can't wait to get my hands on
the 1/00 scale kit and that New Materiel Model Turn A toy.

What's the address of that site you mentioned?

That is an cool idea for the early episodes. Is there any info. on the 'Net
anywhere telling how many episodes Turn A will run for? If it does well, it
sounds like Turn A may run for quite awhile.

The site I posted does seem to lack a lot of info about each episode, doesn't
it? This is one reason I want to watch Turn A myself.

That's sound kind of silly, until you think about it. The Moon must be a hard
place to lve on, according to that about the bread. The Moon race could split
into at least, two factionsin later episodes. Example: Maybe the Moon Queen
wants peace between the Earth and the Moon, but someone in the Moon's
millitary doesn't. Thats just one of the many really interesting variables
that Tomino could think up for later episodes. I can't see peace anytime
soon, though, as peace would defeat the purpose of the Turn A Gundam and
other MS from Turn A.

Um... Wonder what it will be, then?
