Huh? But I thought Master Asia was actually defending GW?
Oh well... in my POV, "Gundam" just wouldn't be complete
if there's no G, W, X, and even Turn-A. I mean, no matter how bad these series may seem to some, especially the UC fans, these series are nevertheless official, as well as over with (except for Turn-A of course). There's really nothing any of us could do about it... even if we can do something like prevent it from airing anywhere, it just wouldn't be fair to people who might actually appreciate these series better. In my opinion, ugliness never ceases to be an opinion unless every single mind that is capable of judging beauty says it is so. Just my opinion...
By the way, that was very well said Garrick ^_^
