Hmm, I see that there are 3 or 4 replies in my mailbox from you but I haven't
read all of them yet. Let me say that I am _SURE_ that the person whose post
you are referring to is a gundam geek of the first order, and they were
referring to the animation quality of the first (and second) series....
Trust me, I have yet to see an oldskooler dis the production quality or
whatever of the gundam anime.... seems about 90% of the people love Zeta
(Gotta agree with em) and loathe Wing (While I think it's an OK series it's
not what it's cracked up to be) Chill out man, these people are defending
Zeta, not trashing it, just letting the younger fans know what was what.
