You screwed up. I just bought the 0080 box set dub a few days ago (handsome
dub, by the way) and I can safely say that 0080 is not a mecha story, so the
so-called mecha fan you gave it to would undoubtedly be disappointed. There
are only two, maybe three standout mecha scenes in the show and even they
aren't a match (excitement wise) when compared to 0083 or GWing. I loved
0080, but it really is a character story in the vein of a Ghibli movie such
as Whisper of the Heart, except that it's faster paced and war-themed.
