Because it's the first mecha design in a long time that looks "real", like if the
U.S. Military decided it needed an anthropomorphic weapon, that's what it could
end up looking like. And it could just be the endoskeleton or the initial, first
clumsy stab at it. You're looking at one still of one M.S. and that's enough to
say it blows. Turn-A, anyone?

The character designs aren't as boring as the original MSG style designs. They
may not be my favorite (actually, 0080 and Ghost In The Shell/Spriggan designs
are my favorite) but they work for me.

Never could get into Turn-A's character designs. Maybe it was that whole
Victorian vibe.
