Even with Gundam Unicorn...I just haven't been liking it that much. All the designs seem to shiny for me. My main exposure to the Universal century Gundam series has been a bit of the original series, 08th MS team and War in a Pocket. All the other stuff has come off as to much like Super Robot stuff for my taste (like Unicorns crazy transformations), without having any of the fun/craziness of a genuine super robot show (like G-Gundam).

This is why this show has got me so interested. It's the first military/sci-fi show out in awhile that doesn't feel overly flashy like allot of recent Mech shows are, and has allot of cool highly detailed retro technical details and designs.
