You know, as much as I love Char Aznable, having the Principality of Zeon symbol on things makes me a little uncomfortable. I know they aren't real, but in-universe they murdered tens of millions of people and made the Nazis look like Care Bears. I guess you can justify it in that Char was only using that symbol to inflitrate and kill the Zabis, but still.

Now Char's Neo-Zeon, that was a righteous cause. They only wiped out Lhasa, Tibet and nearly caused a nuclear winter. Laughing

Haha, the Auris! Otherwise known as the Corolla outside Japan.

I'll say this again though:

Prefer this provocatively creative nekkid red Toyota Auris commercial instead!



You're welcome fujoshi. Laughing

I think I'm not digging it because it's a hatchback.
Also how does anyone keep up with what Toyota names it's cars for the NA market?
