Kudos Richie Ramos of the Philippines! I too have been a G-fan for quite some time and I'm glad for the company. Anyway, GW has been shown in the country (as well as G-Gundam) and the results weren't nearly as favorable. I doubt Filipinos will ever appreciate the beauty (and complexity) of the UC series. I never liked GW, too cheesy and the characters (save Duo ) are pretty boring.
