Pretty much any time either of the Athhas opened their mouths made me want to kill small animals. I hate both of 'em.

Alex, seeing the Odin Gundam coming down with the beam axe, used his own Gundam's thrusters to leap backwards about 125m, leveled the rifle at the Odin as it came down and fired three shots, aiming for the shoulder and forearm of the arm holding the axe, and for the bazooka on its back.

Any time Lacus Clyne opens her mouth. Any of Cagalli's half-baked speeches in Destiny. Especially the ones where she's in Strike Rouge and trying to get the Orb military to stand down. It makes me glad that Shinn told her STFU on the Minerva and then shot at her later on over the ocean in response ...

"C'est ca, mon vieux...tu peux toujours courir." Alex raised the shield to block his enemy's machinegun fire, and as the Odel started trying to close in, fired two beam rifle shots at the waist and another one at the head, simultaneously preparing to move if it became necessary.

The RTX-008 Huckebein has the following pilots listed at the site I use: 008R: Raidiese F. Branstein (destroyed) 008L: Irmgard Kazahara, Viletta Badam, Ring Mao. Now, I recall very clearly that Viletta has already made a very brief appearance in the series - I forget when, but at one point Ingram wa...

Opinions of Lacus' views aside, I still wouldn't put her on the same list as those people. That'd be like putting Laura Bush or Hillary Clinton on the same line as Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin, it just doesn't compare (although I'm sure there are people on this board that think so). Putting my own...

Boosting sideways out of the line of fire, Alex snapped off a beam rifle shot aimed at the Odin's head, as well as a burst from its two upper-torso-mounted 40mm antiair machineguns, and its two dual 20mm head-mounted vulcan guns, followed up by a second shot from the beam rifle, aiming at the elbow ...

I've found that glaring inaccuracies tend to find their way into AI with a certain degree of frequency, and it's a bit low on content for my personal taste. (Examples from recent issues include their identifying "Meer" as "Lacus" and talking about "Talia Gladys's wedding" in a preview for Ep14 of GS...

I grew up on Queen, the Eagles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, with a sprinkling of Supertramp, The Beatles and some French stuff here and there (Claude Francois, Joe Dassin, Daniel Balavoine, Indochine and Debut de Soiree, primarily), and some occasional Crosby/Stills/Nash/Young. Then I picked up Man...

I think it's more to do with how the characters are animated than their actual age. Though they're both 14, the way Latooni's animated, she looks like a lil' kid, whereas Asuka looks like someone in her teens or who, to people uninformed about the actual series, might very well be older. Though I'd ...

Latooni starts piloting the Wildraubtier for Operation Breakout, the assault on the DC's main base in episode 15/16, while Ryusei upgrades to the R-1. So Latooni gets Ryusei's hand-me-down. :D Iirc (I've read some story summaries of the GBA game Smile ), Ryouta upgrades to the Wildschwein later. He...

Alex saw the Odin aim the machinegun and leaped backwards, raising the beam rifle as he did so. Iggnoring the pain from a couple of shells grazing his left leg, he targeted the Odin's forearm, just behind the elbow, and fired a single shot. "Tu veux rire? Not a problem at all, norseman." Inwardly, A...

The Gundam Durendal walked resolutely forward, coming to a stop about five hundred meters from the Odin Gundam. In its right hand was the 57mm beam rifle. The two heat sabers were stored in their racks on the left hip, and the shield was attached to the left forearm. In the cockpit, Alex stood ready...

I love this series. Period. IMO there's not enough ATX Team, but characters like Latooni more than make up for it...Latooni, by the way, is adorable in Episode 13. And I love, love, LOVE the Wildraubtier. Not too crazy about the Wildschwein or the R1, though. Gespensts are cool too. And the Grungust...

Even assuming White Fang makes their move, if OZ still fields the Scorpio and G-Units against them, the Virgo IIs won't stand a chance, and Zechs is gonna have Heero AND Valder to deal with, minimum. So White Fang VS G-Boys VS Oz+G-Units+Scorpios = OZ wins. You know what'd REALLY be interesting to t...

Except for perhaps shooting Septem in the head after dumping him out the back end of the airplane. That was a sweet shot, you have to admit.
