        I see your point.. But won't any other series have a bait-and-switch
effect too? 0080 is a bit bad in this sense because I don't hear of similar
storylines in other series, but 0083 had some common threads with other
series, especially when you compare the fight sequences there with CCA.

        Perhaps I like 0080 because it is actually trying to get a point
across.. and manages to. Other Gundam shows either tries to deliver a
difficult message to comprehend, or is just a series of very interesting
fights.. (CCA or 0083 in this case)
