It's kind of funny....I think part of the reason that a lot of people
dislike The Phantom Menace is because that it involved a lot of politics if
you looked into it, unlike the other three films(Although SW:ANH had some
politics). There wasn't too many politics in 0083 though; Cima was kind of
hard to figure out, I didn't figure out that her relation with Anaheim was
actually part of Delaz's plan until I saw him smiling when the lasers hit
the colony. As for her Federation ties-now that wasn't Delaz's plan at

Perhaps it is better that way. If you try to get a wide audience you would
lose what makes gundam great, a healthy mix of politics, tactics, and action
(there is always at least one mecha battle during an episode). But I
understand what you are getting at. O_O cartoon...really, gundam is an
anime. ^_^
