  I wonder if Tomino is privately laughing and thinking "I Hate mecha
shows, finally I've tricked Bandai into paying megabucks for this hot shot
American designer who designed the stupidest mecha ever! Now I am free to
write the story the way _I_ want and I know Bandai won't make me feature
this butt-ugly Gordam in every episode!"

  The "Twisted Gordam Story" is pretty much identical to hordes of anime
pseudo-greenie post-modern evangelical environmentalist stories.
