Perhaps it's in the way they were storyboarded? Am not an expert on staging
anime fight scens, but I think that it's a fair bet that somehow, the scenes
you remember are more, errr, for want of a better term, anime-dramatic. The
most memorable for me in 0083 was how Cima bought it.

In retrospect, I would say that what made him a target for GML comments was
that he had so much promise that didn't happen...In which case, I would
submit that I am now turning neutral on the Kou debate. He may actually be
one of the most...err, normal pilots.

Well, I saw how they were doing their attack on the desert base...they look
like they had the makings of a federation version of the Black Trinary.

I remember someone naming him irresponsible Captain Shiro or something...
