I HATE the EW Gundams! I absolutely hate them. I love katoki's OZ MSs, but those
pointy shoes on DSHC look like crap. I mean, geez he took the very cool and Evil
looking Deathscythe Hell and turned into a Keebler elves reject. I think 2 Beam
gattlings is more than enough for Heavyarms. The sandrock is inoffensive. Sissy
shoujo Wing zero custom is actually kind of cool though. I like how the wings
fold around, but the original design is much cooler.

Yes definately, based on the flashback at the beginning.

I don't know, I do like the EW Customs. And I like some of the originals. But I HATE the Deathscythe Hell. It just looks stupid to me. Maybe when I see it animated I will think differently. I also happen to prefer the Original Wing Gundam to the Wing Zero Custom. I particularly liked the chest vents, kinda like a classic car.
