I really don't know, because I have never purchased any VCD online. Last
year someone sent me the URL of an online VCD store, but they didn't carry
any Gundam titles.

You probably saw the same guy I was referring to! Only a few days ago he
had the same thing with a beginning bid of $30. The next time his starting
bid went up to $40, and now it starts at $50! Sheesh.

Oh boy, we just went over this thread like last month. The consensus
seems to be that they weren't lovers until the producers decided they
should have a past romantic link later in the series.

My take is that she did recognize Gato when he stepped into the GP-02A's
cockpit. When Gato turned around after Nina warned him not to mess with
the Gundam, you can tell she was shocked by who she saw. She didn't tell
anyone about the identity of the hijacker probably because (1) she wasn't
100% sure it was Gato, and (2) admission to such a link could jeopardize
her chance to stay aboard the Albion.
