  Nah, they were part of the original update...

  He _is_ Amuro, in the sense that the Gunboy Wilbur _is_ the Gundam and
the Pegasus _is_ the White Base. Some differences in design, personality,
and plot, but plays same role in story and most of the general
characteristics are the same.

  More specifically, the Gunboy Wilbur is the Gundam, and the Gunboy
Orville is the Guncannon - there are two of the latter, labeled C108 and
C109 just like the two Guncannons in the movies. One is piloted by the
Kai character, the other by the Hayato character.

  Which is, um, interesting. :-)

  The principal English translator is the well-spoken Jonathan Clements.
He must have been out the week they posted that last update. ;-)
