Aaron chimes in,

  Well, yes. According to NewType magazine, as the series begins Earth is
at a roughly 19th-century technology level. From what I've been hearing,
the idea is that Earth once had higher technology but has lost it (so the
Gundam may well be a relic of this earlier era). Thus, all the characters
look like Miyazaki extras. Give them _some_ credit here, people! :-)
