    HGUC Gundam F91

      I was equal parts excited and intimidated by the HGUC F91 when I picked it up for my HG All Gundam Project. It’s a fairly modern HG, so I can trust it to be relatively builder-friendly with all the articulation and accessory goodies that modern HGs offer, but at the same time it’s also known that the F91 is…

To be fair I gave it a chance – five episodes in I just couldn’t bear the narrative anymore – the animation style was also pretty jarring. But alas, this isn’t an anime series review, we’re here to…
