Subject: RE: [gundam] 08th MS team the best series ever?Signs point to yes!

The last battle of episode ten, when Shiro finally confronts Norris. This
it. The duel between these two just brings out the best in them. It's not
just MS vs MS it's pilot vs pilot as each shows his resourcefullness in
battle. This is probably the best use of ones environment in any duel in a
Gundam series.

Besides, Kou could have killed Gato over and over if it were not for his
stupidity (c'mon the GP01-Fb had better specs than the GP02).

vs. Zechs?

in the last episode of Gundam W as >another good battle!
