Matt, defender of stuff that is pretty cool! (

I have to agree. Whenever I mention Gundam to a kid or someone on campus, it
never fails that I get a response out of them like "Deathscythe Hell is the
best one, don't you think?"

Now, don't get me wrong, I like Gundam Wing as much as the next guy, but I
was introduced to the UC stuff long beforehand. I remember in the early 90s,
picking up some Formula 91 model kits at a local comic store, and trying to
hunt down all the issues of the Gundam 0083 comic that Viz brought over here
(came pretty close, as I recall).

But, whenever I say, "no, I like the original gundam series," a good portion
of the time, they're clueless. And then I'll say, "Gundam is over 20 years
old. The first series came out in 1979 in Japan." Sometimes this is met with
actual interest, other times it's a blank stare, followed by, "Hey, do you
watch Dragon Ball Z too?"

Sigh. I LIKE my UC timeline stuff. I want Bandai to hurry it up and bring
08th MS team out on DVD in the US, I'd love to see 0080 and 0083 on disc as
my VHS copies are showing a bit of wear, and I could definitely go for a
local release of Zeta (which I hope they'll pick up on Cartoon network or
something), Char's counterattack, and heck, F91 too while they're at it.
