 Bianca 2, Street Fighter Zero and Bubblegum Crisis 2040. Although they were

 sucessful here than in Japan, hence their being targeted for American
 viewers although they were still shown in Japan. >>

   A Gundam show targeted at American's is fine, as long as its done in
Japan, with the people who are/where involved with Gundam. I.E. other people
besides Tomino have made Gundam stories for other Gundam shows, without it
taking away the the Gundam "feel", for the most part.
