I find it funny how after I watched the first episodes of Z, A, & X, I was convinced that the changes made to the show had ruined it beyond repair. In Z it was the removal of the cleavage windows and much of the "adult" comedy. In A it was the addition of the Twin-Star Team. In X it was addition of Chitose. Every time, I was proven wrong.
I feel the first half of A was the best, with Z not far behind. Second half of A was the worst.
Also, Ranpha is mai waifu.
