    Oh, so you are just talking about what the show is called and when the
unit is introduced, right? Well, Zeta is probably the one where they hold it
out the longest before they "debut" it on the show - other shows "debut"
their "premier", or "final" unit usually around the "half time" period. ZZ
is definitely the "earliest" - it debut ZZ in episode 11...

    Are you sure about the eye-catch? I remember on my Zeta tapes that the
ey-catch is always Gundam Mk-II, with Zeta in later episodes. Maybe it's
just the Japanese TV version, but my Chinese sub tapes have Gundam Mk-II
eye-catch throughout, with Zeta replacing it later...

    Well, you have to say it's unique because after Fa busted the Methsus,
Aghama only have "Gundam" MS left (Mega rider is basically an add-on or a
MA, and Quebeley Mk-II was destroyed pretty early too), and I guess that's
what the "Gundam Team" term came from...
