A few familiar names indeed. Chris and Astonaige are obvious, but the Yashima Heavy Industrial is an interesting addition. Maybe Shoefitter is another term for test pilot or something.

It's like looking at the credits to a movie. No special thanks or production babies?

I'm going to assume that you're right Wingnut, only because of the "If the shoefits" saying....and the V Project definitely fit.

But does this mean Christina more of a role with testing out other Gundam models other than the NT-1?

Is that one of the reasons that they used the term "shoefitter" instead of test pilot(s)? :?

Hell if I know, that's just how I'm rationalizing it. For all I know, it may be a Japanese term that means something else entirely.

I'm just kind of surprised they mention Agar with all the engineers like Mosk Han and Alph Kamra.
