        Still, 0080 seems to have less publicity than the rest of the Gundam
series. Was there a particular reason why it wasn't as "hot" as shows like 0083?

        When I first watched 0083, I thought it was a great show. After I
joined this list, I came to realise it's a lot of eye candy.. very good eye
candy, but still..

        Which leads me to a comment about the flood of CGI/CG mails lately.
I feel CG can make a good story better -- see Macross Plus for an example --
but lately I feel the US has been featuring films which are more technically
stunning (lots and lots of CG) but has a story deader than dead. CG is
great, but the story has to be there to begin with... CG is worthless on its
own, it can't substitute for a good story.

        Heh. Thanks. =) It was either the Dom or the GP-02. Somehow, GP-02
didn't fit the image...
