I agree EW was quite good, and I don't mind having more gundam model kits
either . But they kinda all look like girls and the girls look like guys thats
kinda creepy.But you gotta admit X wasn't THAT bad and ZZ well i have nothing
to say about that. I watched all of gundam wing and well it didn't appeal to
me as much as a Street Fighter-like Gundam G. And have you ever noticed that
in all of tomino's stories its about neglected children (Evangelion, most of
Gundam). Thats the only real theme I see repeating.
