Well maybe not that much, but I’ve really been enjoying the increased presence of the best female character in Gundam 00. A capable captain without any sort of unusual personality flaws or traumatic past (as far as I know), it’s like a hot drink on a cold day.
I don’t know why she’s become a more important to Gundam 00, but it’s really great seeing a character I like go from being a fairly minor character to being one that’s prominently featured in practically every episode. Maybe there were some polls and Sunrise found out that Kati Mannequin has an awesome fanbase. Or maybe they wanted to feature her voice actor more. Whatever the reason, I am reaping the benefits.
Also, that A-Laws uniform with hairbun does terrible things to me.
