Yes, with the merchandising of Gundam in full tilt, now is the best time to
release it. also, with the advent of american cartoons like Spawn in HBO
and other such, i think the violence content of the Gundam stuff will go
over well now, not like in the '80's when GIJoe showed that everyone could
eject out of HELICOPTERS, and no one got hit by laser rifles...
