That's because all you guys thought, "wow, he likes the mass pop culkture here?"

Those elements used correctly, will add to the dimensions of gundam. We're
not talking about turning it into an all-american thing; i want to see the best
techniques in storytelling, directing and cinematography that america can offer,
used in a gundam context, which has the best -- and some of the worst -- characteristics
of anime. why not merge the better qualities of both to see how it will turn
out? Why so intent on keeping gundam away from western ideas, when in fact,
that is where it's heading to with the introduction of Syd Mead and Turn A/TurnX?
