What did Amuro NOT see in her in the animated canon?
Upon rematching, they what seems to be a professional work relationship and respect each other, but there's nothing romantic going on between the two.
It certainly would have been interesting to see in Z Gundam and CCA if she and Amuro were romantically involved, as that would have been another point of contention between Char and Amuro, but it just didn't happen.
Having his dead girlfriend haunt him certainly complicates any long-term relationship, anyways.
>but there's nothing romantic going on between the two.
In the anime, yeah. It's only the novels that something happens, and in the manga they did get closer than they did in the anime and it seemed like something that could happen.
In the novel, its mentioned that feddie pilots sometimes carry their girlfriend's pubes around as goodluck charms called amulets. Amuro, who bangs Sayla in the novel, becomes concerned for his safety after one of the Pegasus's GM pilots is killed. So he asks Sayla for her pubes before A Boa Qu, she is pretty disgusted and turns him down. Amuro dies in battle, and Kai cries to himself that it was because he never got an amulet.
I have no idea where Kai got his.
Kai does have one actually! He shows Amuro it in one scene, I think its said that he taped the hairs to a page in a notebook he carries around. He refuses to tell Amuro who he got them from though.
Uuh..is this some kind of elaborate troll to trick people who havn't read the books?
I actually havn't read the books, but that just sounded way too retarded for me to not question it.
If it is a troll, it's pretty funny haha.
It's actually an old superstition from East Asian countries. Soldiers/warriors would ask their wives/girlfriends whathaveyou for an amulet made from a locket of their hair for good luck.
Now I'm not entirely sure if pubic hair were used as well or if it's just one of those Tomino "I want lickable pussies" thing.
Hair was the most common, and least disgusting.
Other choices were fingernail clippings or saliva.
The pubic thing was supposedly the most intimate of all, and thus had the most protective properties.
>yfw Sayla killed Amuro
No wonder Char dumped her like a sack of bricks.
It's my head canon that Kai and Sayla became a secret thing after the war. Those Origin bonus chapters where Sayla helps those kids for Kai warmed my heart. I imagine when he dials up Luo & Company at the end its to call her.
That cover is just sad. Look at it. Fa and Amuro are draped in vacation robes, enjoying the even breeze, while Hayato takes cares of the kids like the world's #1 cuck that he is.
I want to be the 100th in line of Zeon pilots "escorting" Sayla to her quarters.
