Damn straight. 0080, 0083, and Char's Counterattack are much better than
Gundam Street Fighter and X. Some of my more Gundam-jaded friends have
started liking Wing, so it can't be that bad. Personally, even though it
messes up the continunity, I like 08MS.

WHAT!?!?! settle down, Okay, granted the first half is kinda boring (I
remember watching them recently and almost feel asleep), but it does
take off (no pun intended) when they get into space. And I just love the
last two episodes. BTW, did you know that Neue Ziel doesn't mean New
Soul (Neue SEELE means new soul) but really translates out to New
What you should show them next is 0080 War In The Pocket. That's still
one of my favorites.
It seems as if they are hooked on Eva's cast of

Good Lord this is OT
