amuro vs. char, kou vs. gato, unlike heero vs. zechs
and domon vs. everyone else. yes, they certainly
tried to change the endings in the alternate
universes. but is that necessarily a bad thing?

question: how much repetition of story is enough
before the formula goes stale? how much repetition of
saga is good and how much before it becomes "the same
old same old"?

i ask that question because on one hand, you have fans
who want something new. on the other hand, you have
oldschoolers who grumble whenever something is
make up your minds, will ya? :)

it's simple for me. i like 'em all. :P
