I have to disagree with the more detail thing, Wing has very lazy artwork
where detail is very lacking on MS's and People, if you'd look at a still
frame of an Action scene you'd know what I mean, but don't get me wrong, most
of the Alternate universe suffer from this as well.And another big problem
that shows up sometimes is something that rarely shows up in anime, I don't
know how to describe it but as distortion, If you've watched american cartoons
you'd know what I mean. Its when the animation moves and some how it seems so
out of propotion compared to the shot before like the X-men Cartoon.
