 Honestly...I forgot the URL. I just remember the gist of the essay as being the difference of Tomino Gundams and "Knock-offs" I think I read it last year. Anyway, it did say that the knock-offs weren't necessarily bad, just that they aren't "real Gundam" in the Tomino style. He said something about appreciating Tomino's original ideas, and I guess I had agreed.
