No... you're not alone. I liked Evangelion a lot and didn't find 0080
all that wonderful - for one thing, the story seems to drag on with lots
of glacially slow scenes. It is really no surprise that there weren't more
Gundam stories fashioned after 0080 if you ask me. BTW, all the "deep
tragedy" of 0080 wouldn't have meant jack if Bernie or Chris turned out to be
gay. ;)
