even the bad guys don't die

but Transformers the movie did give us the action and violence we crave.
they just had as much deaths as Char's Counterattack. on the other hand,
the only casualty of GI Joe the movie was Duke who went into a coma but
recovered in the end (thus no deaths)

the comparison here is that both Gundam and GI Joe portray a war. I just
thought of the comparison because we were talking about deaths and we all
know deaths are part of a war. so what's the use of having a series,
cartoon or otherwise, about war and nobody dies? because you can't show
violence on air? then just show the Monchichies instead. =)
