I can understand why the hardcore Gundam fans hated this show. It is a major difference from the dark themed nature which Gundam was known for. However, they need to understand that this particular series was aimed towards a MUCH younger audience. It's a KIDS' show for crying out loud!
I enjoyed it because it made me feel like a kid again.
I know, i want to see the rest but i've heard that there were more episodes but due to the low ratings, it wasn't worth keeping it on air. I wish i can see the rest because i'm not interested in the Gundam series but this one i was most interested in.
