It had been a long time since I saw it. Thanks for clearing that up.
Also, I'm sure you have, but ever notice how Gundam Wing is basically an equal reinvisioning of the first Gundam series?
Protagonists are younger, brown round-haired males who pilot Gundams that are primarily painted white, red, and blue, with some gold details here and there.
Zechs is a spitting image of Char, no doubt about that. Both are blonde and masked similarly and wear upper-class red clothing, white pants, the whole shebang. Also, both are older than Amuro and Heero.
Amuro Ray and Heero Yuy have the same amount of letters in each name.
And countless other similarities between the two series. Thank God they don't take place in the same timeline, or universe for that matter (here I go with the timeline stuff..)
