Silly.

Everyone knows the real answer is "The Tenchi Solution." Marry all of 'em.

Umm... You do know that two of the girls, Ayeka and her little sister, are relatives to Tenchi. That is kinda messed up from the beginning.

And In Gundam Wing, Everyone knows that the best relationship in that show was that of Duo and his girl. I mean, he was able to make her defect from Oz and join the Gundam team. Or you can argue No Name and Quatre.

Spike and Julia...okay, so maybe they had problems

If you're watching a show about giant fighting robots and your main concern is the verisimilitude of male-female pair bonding, you're doing it wrong.

Article wins for two reasons:

1) Vegeta and Bulma mentioned as a best couple

2) bashing Relena and Heero

So? Ayeka was originally engaged to her brother, who's the great great great great great (etc) grandfather to Tenchi.

Actually, I just fact checked that and it was originally slated for Toonami, but ended up on Adult Swim. My bad, carry on.

And we all know that he is an alien too... But its still kinda disturbing. But not as bad as the rabbit / ship creature having a crush on Tenchi in the episode where she turned into a girl.

I was being sarcastic on that one. Though I do really enjoy the entire Gundam series, minus SD Gundam, Duo is still my favorite pilot in Wing just cause of DeathSythe Hell and DeathSythe Hell Custom from Endless Waltz. Thing looks like a beast. And it can cloak.

To quote Ayeka, "You might find it strange for someone to marry their own brother, but on Jurai, it's quite common."

Also, technically speaking every character other than Kiyone (who wasn't in the original OVAs anyway) are related to each other. Ayeka and Sasami are sisters, Sasami is also host to Tsunami, who is one of the three goddesses and sister to Washu, who is mother (in a clone sort of way) to Ryoko, and is also great-grandmother to the bumbling Mihoshi.

But regardless, yes, the Tenchi method is: find a planet where polygamy isn't just accepted, but is the norm, and marry them all.

fun fact: apparently there's a follow-on manga to that series, where you find out Duo and Hilde get married, get divorced, get back together, break up, he farks around with prostitutes and ages prematurely, she becomes a nun, they have a kid together that neither will acknowledge is actually theirs although they both help raise him in their orphanage, and then she dies.

Ta-Daaa!

Heavyarms is an awesome gundam... But one thing I could not get is how it can fire all those guns in space... wouldnt the gun powder need air to ignite. But with that aside, Heavyarms is my third favorite gundam set. Wing Gundam is my second only cause I am a huge Robotech fan and love the transforming plane to robot idea.

But DeathSythe Hell has a better armor set then the other Gundams. Though I recall Heavyarms has the second best armor. DeathSythe Hell could take direct beam hits and take no damage. Plus, Cloaking device on DeathSythe Hell makes it really hard to match.

I think its sad that I know all this from memory. I have most of the model kits from Gundam Wing. So I remember looking at them but not being able to read the directions, seeing they were in Japanese. But I always looked up the info on the web to get an idea their stats.

Heavyarms has the heaviest armor the best armorments.

Wing Gundam (as well as Wing 0) has the best weapon, Beam Buster Rifle (Duel Beam Buster Rifle)
It is also the only gundam to be able to reenter Earths atmosphere with no add ons. (Zero has the Zero system)

DeathSythe has a stealth ability. Hell can actually cloak and its wings are coated with anti-beam materials.

Shinlong (And Altron) AKA:Nikcatu, has the flamethrower and snake like stretching arms.

Sandrock is made for desert combat.

Epion has an electronic whip that can extend and the same type of Zero System.

Such little love for Sandrock. Sad.

Although the original model is a little dorky, any kid watching Endless Waltz would be lying if they didn't get a half-staff when Sandrock Custom busted out the giant arse shotels.

Also from the article, no love for Kuwabara and Yukina from YuYu Hakusho? Granted they didn't get a lot of screentime, but still.

Not as sad as this:
i.imgur.com

I marathoned Gundam Wing in the course of about a 5 days. Wow that story does NOT hold up when you watch it that fast. No one's motivations make sense and every character switches allegiances about a half a dozen times. You could really see the bits where they went "Let's do this stupid thing to drag it out another 10 episodes". I just wanted to slap Relena half the time. I also thought the mechs were kinda bad looking, though I liked Tallgeese for just how strange it looked. It really kinda killed my love of the Gundam franchise, but a year or so later I found Macross (REAL Macross, not that Robotech crap) and was much happier. I was so happy when Hikaru told Minmay to go bark up a different tree.

Tenchi is a harem comedy so pretty much every girl will be horrible. If you want a more thoughtful Tenchi go watch Tenchi Muyo in Love 2/Tenchi Forever. That's probably the closest I've seen to a guy actually picking a girl in the Tenchi-related series. Even Dual! which I love dearly ends on essentially a harem ending. Though it's funny that as I watched it at different ages I went from liking Mitsuki Rara to D to Mitsuki Sanada. Mitsuki Sanada I absolutely hated the first couple times I watched the series, but started to like her later on. Though D still holds a special place in my heart...

/Still like that Macross has a semi-practical reason to have mechs, as opposed to Gundam

I was talking about them in the best light. I forgot about Roy and Claudia.

I did always like Rook and the guy in the 3rd generation.
