by Dukeon April 23, 2008
If you look at the Gundam landscape here in America, what little there is consists mostly of Cosmic Era stuff.

You just have to look at the Universal Century where it seems there is always some new story set in the time frame of the original series ready to pop up to sell manga, games and plastic models.
