None of those sport the patented samurai helmet, V-anteena, red tongue,
or super tough alloy armor like the Epyon from Wing. Come on, you are
beginning to stretch it to a point where any show can be a 0079 ripoff.

I fail to admit? I don't even see it, and no one's pointed out any
specifics supported by examples yet. So where's the cowardly Kai Shinden
in the 5 G boys? The nurturing Mirai? The naughty Kiki & Co.? You must
have seen a different Gundam Wing than I did.

>As to the Relena/Sala comparison, they are both blondes,

Relena is not blonde. Hair hair is light brown. For comparison, check out
Zechs, who's blonde like Char and Sayla.

Relena was a heir to a kingdom destroyed by the Alliance, how does this make
her heir to the empire of the "bad guys"?

>Oh, and she love the main "good

Sayla did not love Amuro in the original TV series or movie trilogy. It was
only in the Tomino-penned novel, which conflicts with the animated TV series
and movie trilogy on several points.
