I tried to tell you all, but noooooo...
I guess one has to actually see something for themselves before they can
decide if it's good or bad. I like them all, don't mistake me. It's a whole
lot of fun to watch. Just wait till the parts where Tohou Fuhai does his

It's Maxter, according to all the games/models/infomation I've seen of it,
and Chibodee Crockett is my favourite kid in the show.

I suppose that nobody understands the underlying theme of it, as the Gundam
being a typecasted exaggeration of that country. It's got a name to it, if
only I can remember what.. Other than that, it's the story of how peace will
prevail if we all put aside our differences, and let Japan do the work.
