For me, it happened almost 18 years ago when "Gundam
0079" was broadcasted locally by a major TV station. I
was instantly hooked when I watched its opening, with
one scene showed a squadron of Zaku IIs covering the
entire TV screen, with Char's Zaku at the centre. At
the time, I thought: "This is it! Star Wars fought by
cool-looking robots. Got to see it." Not to mention my
highschool classmates were buying/hyping the then
ungraded 0079 model series, so it's natural for me to
be a Gundam fan. The amazing thing is that I am still
a Gundam fan after all these years. Got to love the
Gundam magic :)
