Question: When is it considered an official English style spelling of the
character's name?

I'm still confused as to the whole Camille/Kamiru Vidan thing.

*Turn A Gundam, Turn A Gundam*

The Opening theme is so cheesy. It ranks up there with some of the Gundam
0079: OYW songs. :)

Yup, the animation takes a while getting used to. I felt I was watching a
Nippon Animation series at times (especially in episode 8) - and I was
practically itching for the Turn A to go into action more. The Turn A looks
better animated and in movement than it does on static shots. I wonder why
Bandai never advertises the Turn A in full motion? I think a lot of subtlety
in Syd Mead's design is lost if you don't show it in motion.
