After a little bit of searching, I found where I read's an article
from Animerica on Anime Loser heroes(Vol 7, No#2. Interestingly, no author
is credited, but due to the fact that a good 1/4th of a page is devoted to
Gundam's heroes, I'm quessing it might be Mark. Anyway, here's the exact
passage "Girl-shy Kou Uraki is a trivia-memorizing mobile suit enthusiast(in
a way, Kou could be seen as a stand in for Model-kit Crazy fans of the
series)" ... It also goes on how Amuro, Camille, and Judo could also be
considered nerds.

LOL, where did you hear that? There must be some truth to it, otherwise
you won't have a legion of Kou-haters who must subconsciously recognized
that they were being made fun of.
