    Newtypes are pretty scarce to the "higher up" people, but they are
pretty much everywhere in ZZ. Then again, nobody really cares about ZZ's
storyline and stuff....

    As for those monster MA, it's easier to produce them than producing
artificial newtypes because it's extremely unstable (their mental state),
even their "finished" ANT like Four or Rosamia is not that stable, compare
to difficulty in producing big MAs...

    I wonder why, since everybody knows that AEUG is the one that's "Newtype
friendly" - maybe it's because Titans has more money....

    But I think that Char and company probably send some of the information
they found on Mk-II to Anaheim right after they got it. It's probably what
finally let them to finish Type 100....

    Probably not, since it's just NT-to-NT fighting, nothing physical (I
believe Reccoa mention something about not seeing them doing anything or
something like that).

    I don't see Judo doing anything when Lina was "killed" ^_^ It does seems
that Bio-sensor is more like an useless accessories than something really

    I wonder why there never was any NT only MS, besides that "thing" Iron
Mask piloted after the Char's Counterattack era - Maybe it's because the
Newtypes disappeared, since I remember people almost refer to Newtype like
something in a legend....
