I wonder where the inspiration came from to make those snazzy Triangle shades. o3o; Or mechs with faces on them. ... BUTBUT. YEAH. WHO THINKS ABOUT THESE KIND OF THINGS!? KICK YOUR REASON TO THE CURB! ...And I love it when Kamina has the sunset behind him, it brings out his epicness.
I'm not sure about the shades, but I think there were a few anime before GL that did have face-mecha, but I don't think they were done as well or as integrated into the main theme of *all* the robots in the show- I'm still surprised and pleased how they managed to make something that sounds so stupid on paper and make it so damn badass and manly (and cute!?) and hilarious and epic all at the same time ;D;
