I hate to admit it but I'm starting to develop an aversion to GW because of
the ignorant fans. I mean, I liked GWing, (Admittedly I've only seen about
half of the series [subbed, not the CN broadcast]) but I felt that compared
to the UC stuff it was.... lacking. But now I almost shudder when I hear
the name, cuz all over gundam related websites I see postings just like
"Who's your favorite Gundam character? .... HEERO or DUO?!!?!!" ... I'm
like arr.... I guess I shouldn't let others ruin things for me, but I don't
know how I feel about the current GW popularity......
