Well, you see everyone says of the recurring themes, but not exactly the
same!! I mean I like the part with Vayeate and Mercurius and the showdown w/
the gunda pilots and Zechs. I also don't mind that there will be lots of wing
talk BUT if you live in NY you'd know what I mean, Every anime fan has seen
wing and nothing else so its hard to start a conversation.

Oh yeah, one thing wrong about this ML:
Rant on W: Wrong!!
Rant on G,ZZ,X: OK....
