I think AC Gundan fans will just have to face the fact. GW and GG are for
adolescence who enjoy superrobot fight scenes, and 0080, 08MS team, and MSG
are for people who enjoy the militaristic and humanistic aspects of the
Gundam wars.

Man, you should really watch the later episodes. If you think Titanic is
tragic, you havn't seen anything yet.

I don't think you are tasteless, you just have a different taste that's all.
