According to a friend of mine, it's a mixed opinion out there. (He's
studying in Japan even now and Turn A is is first view of Gundam.) He's
sent me the first 15 eps from the series, and it does start out a bit slow,
but gets much better as it goes along. He likes the series so far and
thinks the story is oprogressing nicely. He prefers a storyline to the
animation quality anyway, so if that matters to you, take it for what it's
worth. There does seem to be a drive to an upcoming event, but it's not
nearly revealed by ep. 15. (Which is a recap ep.)
