I don't know how to take this. Could it be that the Japanese sponsors are
so dumb that they won't let a proven winner go off and do his own thing
(and trusting that the doughs will roll from)?
[Please don't give me any more "they do whatever that makes money" lines.
There are ample examples of the contrary in both Japanese and Western

As much as I am a big fan of Gundam (and a very few other mecha shows), I
totally agree with that "cheap" statement. On average (repeat: ON
AVERAGE) SciFi is in the bottom of all the genres, anime/cartoons are
mainly designed to appeal to kids, and of all the SciFi anime/cartoons,
mecha/robot shows are usually worse than the non-robot shows.
Gundam was a truly rare gem.
