Gundam 00 Lite Novel 1 - Noboru Kimura

I don't get the appeal of this boring crap. It's men fighting each other and aiming guns at each other while the women clutch their hands at their breast and go "on no, so many people will die." All Gundams are like this. It wants to preach and end to war, but the reason people like it is the fighting.
