I played both Zone of the Enders, and The 2nd Runner a lot. And I loved the way that they did the mechs, or Orbital Frames. Just the whole way the technology worked and such. It was new to see a streamlined mecha of that size that didn't move like a walking tank or fly with these clumsy looking shifts or boosters as seen in Gundam. I started drawing a schematic drawing of the main OF, Jehuty, and after about 3 months I happily finished it.
