Actually I have grown up watching gundam, At five years old i remember
watching 0079 in chinese, but at that age all you really notice is colorful MS
things flying around and big bright flashes. WOW!! Flashes!!

But What I heard About Turn-A is that that guy was voted best male character
in an anime series or something like that... I'm not quite sure but I remember
something like that on this list.
