The problem with the OVAs as being talked about in this thread is that they
are far too short to have the sort of character development that a series
such as the original Gundam or Z-Gundam had. (43 and 50 episodes as opposed
to 6 for 0080, and 13 for 0083.) As a result, most of the OVAs are mainly
action and eye candy (0080 being a pleasant exception, with it's strong,
character driven story.)
