This is a good book, considering the fact there are so
few ZZ references available on the market, and Asahiya
did a great job with a special tribute to Meshymre
Cello (pg 48) for his undying devotion (brainwash?!)
to his master, Haman Khan :)

I am disappointed with GunMech 6 (Zeon vessels) and 7
(Feds' vessels) package. We are basically paying most
of the money for the green/blue binders, but content
were pretty thin in comparison. For GunMech 6, does
doing only the Zeon ships means HJ are ignoring other
UC baddie's ships like Zanscares and Crossbone
Vanguards? For GunMech 7, Feds ship coverage is up to
Char's Counterattack only (i.e. La Cairum, etc), but
what about those featured in F91 and V Gundam? And
from what I've learned, GunMech 7 means to be the last
UC GunMech book, if this is true, then HJ has done a
very lousy job from start to finish.
