I am an American fan who has only seen Wing, but would much rather see the
UC stuff than G-Gundam. Wing is certainly cool, but it seems very
"super-hero" oriented. I tend to really like the more militaristic mecha
from the other series much better than stuff from G or V, and have a feeling
that the stories from UC would be much better too.

But.... as an American, I guess I'll take what I can get!

Yeah, I've tried to point out to other people that there is a bigger Gundam
universe other than Wing's, but they are actually more interested in seeing
G and X(Although they apparentally are not too thrilled about Turn A)
Check out this banner! People want their G!
