Gundam Wing... need I say more?
(Note: Gundam Seed is crap)
I like you. I like you a whole lot. Seed was crappy. So was G Gundam. My boyfriend and I talked last night about the sad deterioration of Gundam. *sigh* If everything had been UC I would've been happier. That, and they would've released Crossbone stateside. *shakes fist* How dare they withhold the awesomest Gundam ever away from me!

Took me some time to figure it out. Anyway, good characters and good action make up for the annoyance of the Tachikomas (I've begun referring to them as "Those damned machines"). I'm still not quite sure what's going on the whole time, but I still like it. It also begun my theory that any character that is voiced by Crispen Freemen (Togusa) will get his ass kicked.
Your dislike of the Tachis makes me cry. They're supposed be endearing like small children! (They did it much better in 2nd GiG though, and they were badass there to boot!) I'm a little obsessed with them, to be honest. *points at avatar, plus Tachikoma plushie, plus model kit, plus "My Other Ride is a Tachikoma" bumper sticker...*

Don't forget baseball bats and ears of bread and ironing out the wrinkles in your brain. Hell yes.
