Yes, but in gundam terms, I would say that I find Sayla mass and Cima to be
very impressive, while in AC it is Relena herself...for Voltes V, I prefer the
enemy spymaster....the one with horns...

(hentai mode on) Sayaka wasn't bad per se, just that she didn't have the endowments
of her Robotic counterpart...on the other hand, to get that, one would need
a lot of cybernetic parts (hentai mode now off).

Yes well, Voltes V was definitely a kind of forerunner for that family thing,
but remember, Grandizer, Mazinger and Gatchaman all had family oriented themes.
 Mekanda too.

equal oportunity or for marketing? although Megumi was touted as a martial
arts artist and stealth specialist and all that, she was pretty helpless at
times. also...think of where she is -- at the feet! imagine the stress of
being in the feet with all that running and jumping and kicking that happens?
 it's like, she needs a five point harness and very strong uhm, sports underwear
to protect against all that!

>As for Combattler - I feel that the Chodenji Tatsumaki will kick Voltes's

>BTW, why is this thread appearing in a Gundam ML? :)

aye well....
