In my opinion GW is a very weak series. I hate to say it I think that Bandai
main reason for doing it was to increase sales. Doing so by creating
Flashier and more outlandishly designed MS. If you look at the story it has
one plot that runs through the series that is almost too close to the

I speak of the Zech and Relena situation. It is almost exactly identical to
the Casavla and Artesia plot.

EW which I gat a few months ago is pitiful. The anime is good but why the
hell make it???

To sell more Gundam toys and kits. And a word to the wise on this mailing
list. Never post negative ideas about GW at alt.binaries.anime it has been
takes over by GW fans and you WILL be flamed. I speak from experience.

I, myself, am not too fond of Gundam Wing. Never have been. But it'd be
wiser not to say it sucks, you may tick someone off here on the list. Try
thinking of it like this: Gundam Wing was made to get a quick hype
stateside, until you matured into UC.
