Gundam X the anime

I refused to watch Gundam X for a long time… the mechs were underwhelming and  the reviews were far from positive. However the new MG Double X was half way decent so I decided to watch it during my gym hours to see, perhaps, I might like it a little bit. (Incidentally HLJ really need to … Continue reading

But the details somehow pull the … Continue reading

It strangly echoes what I briefly thought about recently, that SEED is so much a better as a story than Wing was. Of course, being a more recent series, … Continue reading
