Hee-hee! One 'net provider turns out bad, go to another. Then get free
web-based email, that service turns out bad, go to another. I just keep
movin' on... :)

Still, I envy anyone from the States who gets a chance to go. Mabye if I can
catch one of those super-cheap springtime round-trip ticket specials...

Nope, someone emailed me pics that had some text descriptions as well as a
"< Back" at the bottom left-hand corner... I highly suspect that they're
screenshots of mecha descriptions from the game. I could be wrong though...

>The only other Gather Beat original is the mobile armor

Oops, forgot that one! The guy who sent me the Juggler also sent that one...
thanks for pointing it out. <^_^

Yup, got some of the Dengeki Hobby issues with those, some of the pics are
usable... as for the Newtype mag insert, I've got that as well, but the pics
are just WAY too small to make them worth scanning. I'll just have to get my
hands on the books you posted about... sounds like they're gonna be my best

Yup, and I get questions about the series all the time. I figured I could
start off with my own L-Gaim series guide, take suggestions and pointers,
then mabye start doing the same for the Gundam and other non-Gundam shows (I
SOOOOOO wanna do a Layzner series guide...)
