I've been hearing people talk about how the animation quality of Zeta is
good enough to stand side by side with many of today's anime shows, but
upon flipping through the recently published Tomino retrospective book,
I can't help but notice how "dated" is the hairstyle of his characters
from the shows that ran in the 80s.

AV.com made a good short-term business decision to release Wing, but I
fear that by the time they get to Zeta, all the girls who bought in
Wing and tried to watch other Gundam shows will all in a sudden go
"What? No cute boys? Bye!" and then U.S. Gundam sales drop like a rock,
Bandai Japan gets scares, and no more Gundam in the U.S.... so in the long
term I think it'll hurt!
