  True. While I haven't seen original TV episodes of the
MSG series, I do have a "Roman album" which features scenes
from those episodes. One of the missing scenes involved
the White Base crews reaction to the sacrifice that Ryo
made in defending Amuro from Harmon Raal, in which practi-
cally _all_ of the bridge crew was weeping. It would've
really hit home the feeling of loss if it were included.
