Zzzzzzzzzzz.......... Wha huh? As I said (for the 10000000000th time) I did
like various parts of GW but in my opinion its not the best or even close.
Where the hell are you getting that I'm putting down anything or anyone?!!
When did I say its was for morons. And why is it ok to bash X and ZZ but when
I say something negative about the big scary GW series I get so many of you
coming down on me?
And I know Sooooooo many GW fans that are not gundam fans at all, so are you
implying I'm calling all my friends morons?
I just don't think that W would be a wise choice for a beginning series for
Geez Garrick, can you at least be a little more mature about this,hot damn!
I have watched all of GW so that you know, but I saw the other Gundam Series
first and that ruins all of wing for you since you know whats gonna happen.
