Well, I have seen the original series back when it is aired in Hong Kong and
I am in High School. But I do miss the last part of the series back then.
Reason that I brought the VCD set is I want to watch the series again. And
boy, find out how much of the essence of Gundam I miss when I first see it
(The movie is nothing compared to the TV series) on TV.

How is the quality of the LD, I mean the coloring and sharpness?? My VCD
set, when I view it has a feeling of out directly from an old tape. The
color is faded somewhat and I can see lines on the side of the screen. Much
like a rerun of 20+ years old tape.

Well, did anybody know is there another clearance deal around??

Well, Since I am now in the states and I brought them awhile back, just to
let everybody knows not to buy VCD sets unless you are sure what you are
going to get.

Thanks, but around the place I live there is no such big community. I am
trying to see if anybody on the list has the LD set and willing to help me

Strange, but is fansubing being forbidden on the list?? I mean, I have
joined the list 2 years ago and then unjoin it for a while. Last time when I
am on the list, there are some people willing to help people out by giving
out fansub. I personal have obtain some fansub through the list by certain
kind fellow :-)

When I rejoin, I did read somebody post it is forbidden...
