***could be some spoilers for those who haven't
watched g gundam and intend to watch it***


can someone clarify all the itty bitty details of the
whole escapade behind master asia and dommon?

after watching from start to finish, i don't quite get
what master asia's intentions were.

if i understood master asia right, his real intention
was to abolish the need for the gundam fights, which
he viewed as destructive to earth and it's natural
inhabitants. this much i gathered, while dommon and
master asia were busy beating the crap out of each
other everytime they meet, all the while calling each
other a fool. (or at least they did, in the
philippine dubbing. the word count of "hangal" in the
whole series can probably run up to a couple of
hundred times. eee!)

so, master asia's methods (the entire devil gundam
escapade) were, for the most part, in agreement with
wong's and urube's, who were really out to conquer the
universe. did i get that right?

only in the end did master asia realize his folly (or
did he?) as he lay dying in the arms of dommon?

was master asia really out to kill dommon? it
certainly seemed that way all throughout the series.
but in the grand tournament in hong kong, master asia
is seen rooting for his "student" (i thought the
sensei bond was severed?) even through wong's
unchivalrous methods. what is up with the guy? (and
what's with master asia's coughing fits?)

what is their whole relationship about in the series?
master asia would assault dommon brutally in a few
shows (would even come close to killing rain early in
the show), and suddenly teach dommon a new technique
("stone breaking punch" ?) in another. what were
master asia's intentions for dommon anyway? was that
ever made clear? is it like a vader-luke
relationship, where the master wants the student to
join him in the dark side?
