That's the whole trick here...Gundam is mostly about realism...mobile suit
and Gundam-related warfare all encircles the science of minoskvi particles.
 Well in GW, there are none!!! How does that work? I mean, the GW mecha
doesn't even have technical statistics of weapons and so forth...all they
have are these DBZ-wannabe power level thingmajiggers!!!

thing), so why doesn't the same apply to mecha shows?
