I don't think you are a bad fan for liking GWing more than the UC shows.
the UC shows can't please everybody and as long as you like Gundam, whether
its UC, GWing, G Gundam, Turn A, whatever, then you're a certified Gundam
fan, and a good one at that. I guess its the same way with anything. a
Ferrari is cool but not everyone thinks so. or a lot may think Michael
Jordan is the best basketball player ever, but there are some who would say
Magic Johnson or Larry Bird or Wilt Chamberlain or someone else. if you
think Bird is the best ever that doesn't make you a bad basketball fan.
