Thank god for that. BTW, is Pokemon as reviled in Japan as it is here? The
second movie flopped big time!

oi, I think so too. But I guess there are as many
people like us who rant about gundam as there are
people who rant about sailormoon ...despite the
difference in age gaps, many anime titles with
humongous fan followings have become part of culture.
Japan-only-wise, Tokimemo and several other dating
sims have also become a major part of of the culture
as they have lasted fro quite a good sum of time.

Gundam is more spread out than pokemon. We can all
rest peacefully.
