I almost forgot to mention one thing about my liking
of Zaku II: in the opening of the 0079 (both the TV
series [episode 1] as well as the 6-hr movies), a trio
of Zaku II were approaching side 7 to investigate the
Fed's Project V. While the Zakus were flying, you can
hear the sound of accousticly-treated breathing noise
in the background. this accoustic effect is fantastic,
for it makes you think the Zakus were breathing but
instantly you know they aren't!! This is one of the
many reason why 0079 is an evergreen Gundam series:
all the little
things were done well.
