IMHO, though I didn't read the rant, your hatred should be towards the
effect of Gundam Wing on American audiences, but not the series itself.
Maybe it was not meant for the audience it was aimed at in America. Could
it be that normal prepubescent males devoted their fanship of anime to a
series focused more on an older, more female Japanese audience? I think
that ignorant patronage and lack of understanding may be the source of many
of the problems some of you may have with Gundam Wing.
By the way, even though I am playing somewhat of a devil's advocate in this
discussion, please do not assume that I am a "wing-nut" or imbalanced on
either side regarding my feelings toward the series.
