Well Tomino hated it because of a mixture of depression and animosity with Ban Dai. I found the series to be very WTF at time, but the series is so scarring that you just have to love it.

For some odd reason, whenever I think about V Gundam, I can't stop thinking about "Core Fighter Football." Think about it: The Victory Gundam's design is more or less designed so the Top and Bottom modules can easily be delivered out and replace damaged modules in the midst of a battle, so why not turn that into a minigame in itself for future UC Gundam games?

As for the storyline itself, it's fairly evident that Tomino had major issues with this series, especially considering how being beheaded by the overgrown "tire" of an Adrasteas is not a pretty way to die, but despite Tomino's angst at the time, I really liked Victory Gundam, as this UC series is one of the few that, IMHO, can rival the Zeta Gundam series toe-to-toe.

Victory was perhaps the full length series with the best action. Though I do like every UC anime, even ZZ and F91. V is a gross personification of depression and conflict. My only problem with it is that occasionally there were moments that were awkward, like when Uso was in a near death situation against to Katejena, the next he is being interrogated in the bathtub.

Oh, yeah. Who could ever the "bathtub interrogation" incident? That was one of the most oddball scenes I've ever seen in ANY Gundam series. @_@

That bathtub scene was weird, didn't Uso hit or bite her on the boob or someting to escape? And then he's running around the place in a towel...And out in space basicaly naked with air leaking into the Gundam...

Yeah, he did. Sometimes I wonder what Tomino was thinking when he put that scene in. At least Usso didn't have to dress in drag like Judau did back in one episode of ZZ Gundam... *Shudders*
