Point taken. It just sounded funny, "old" Wing fan, like it's been around forever.

You misunderstand (or I wrote that badly). I meant that those two shows had more of a
believable and mature dialogue style and delivery, the opposite of Wing. No, they don't
define a Gundam show. They do define a realistic style of delivering lines that can be
easily found in TV shows and movies. That radio serial type of lines that the Wing
characters spit out don't really have a comparable twin in non-animated shows.

But how would you rate how the lines are delivered and what is said? Again, I'm talking
about lines that tell the viewer the obvious even though it's not necessary.
