whaddaya mean? those g gundam kits are all over the
shelves. they're in perpetual supply, it seems. even
in stores that don't normally sell kits.

i, of course, disagree. i thought the dubs were good,
if a little erratic. especially compared to voltes
and daimos english dubs we had. i would definitely
take tagalog dubbing than english dubs with tagalog
(visayan?) accent! and the subs available for g wing
were godawful carabao english.

not everything tagalog is poorly done.

just curious (since i have no way of knowing), but how
did you gauge the popularity of each series?


ps. fed,...y'know you told me to search for
"mechapinoy" and "pinoyotaku" mailing lists, but never
told me WHERE to search for them. i tried searching
anyway, but found none. would you mind sending it
over to me in private correspondence at least?
