    I'm a casual Gundam fan. I have a couple Gundam figs and am generally pleased with the detail and aethetics of them. I suppose that you're a Gundam fan yourself?

    Im something of a casual gundam collector- the custom factor I get from modelkits- while I have tons of action figures, my model kits make me hilariusly proud

    same as above.

    I really liked the Wing series, but lost touch after, as canadian television stopped running it after it ended.

    check my collection pics for the toys I have.

    I'm a hardcore UC fan. I despise Wing and Seed because they offer no new ideas at all, and just recycle all that came before them, and never do anything as well as the series they take the ideas from.

    I come for the mecha, really. I'm a fan of a lot of UC designs, though I've seen or read only a fraction of the canon. Most of what I know I know from fansites like MAHQ.net - I devoured Gundamproject when Mark Simmons was running it back in the day.

    I'm just like TJ

    I liked Gundam Wing the series, I own some of the Gundam Wing Mangas as well as Endless Waltz on DVD. I tried getting into Gundam Seed, but after missing so many episodes I got lost. Doesn't help that YTV dropped Seed and replaced it with Eureka 7, FMA and Bleach. Not hatin', just saying

    I am a Gundam Fan. I have the complete Zeta show on DVD. I also own 8th MS Team, G Gundam, Gundam Movies, Gundam War in the Pocket, 0083, Gundam F91, Char's Counterattack, Gundam X (Fansubbed), Turn A Gundam (Fansubbed) and a few volumes of SEED and Wing. I hope that Bandai USA releases ZZ Gundam someday(even though some do not like it), I would also love to see a subtitled 0079, along with V Gundam.

    That's because they played through it like... 3-4 times through (including the repeat late-night airings).

    I stopped all my Gundam things after they stopped producing the Figures at a time when they were the best they ever had been. Those SEED figures are so dam possable for a what I thought was a cheap price.

    I've watched Gundam Wing and I enjoyed it. That was the first one I saw.
    I've since seen Gundam Seed (pretty cool, though Frey annoyed the heck out of me), Seed Destiny (could never get into it), Seed Stargazer (could have done with being a bit longer to explain half the stuff in it, but for three 15 minute episodes it was very fun to watch) and Gundam X (I can never understand why there is all the hate for this series, it's every bit as good as Wing in my opinion, except for the episodes about the Newtype Dolphins at any rate).

    I've also read the Astray Mangas. Astray was an absolute blast, Astray R not so much, and X Astray is looking to be a worthy follow on to Astray.

    Looking forward to watching some UC stuff and G Gundam in the future.

    Guess it was just my bad luck I never caught it from the begining then

    *phew*

    Because other then One Piece and Shaman King, I've never seen an anime on YTV that wasn't played from start to finish. I seriously thought YTV dropped the ball on that series. But now I know I was wrong.

    Makes me wonder what series they'll get to replace Inuyasha now that it's done too

    I like Gundam, but so far the only series I can really watch is G Gundam. Not a big fan of either W or Seed. I like the robots themselves more than the shows.

    Well, as for One Piece, it's a still-ongoing series, and I believe 4Kids dropped it due to lack of popularity (probably because all the fans are boycotting it due to its butchered-ness...). As for Shaman King, I hadn't followed it, so I have no clue what happened, if they played it through or not.

    They should of aired Gundam X right after the Gundam Wing series, it would have done them alot better. I just happy enuf to had foudn the entire Gundam X series soem years back in decent quality and got to watch it all. TO bad they f'd it up and shortened the run because they chainged its airdates and got shrunk by about 10 episodes.
