  I think that was kinda supposed to be the idea behind Aura Battler
Dunbine and the mecha-less followon "Byston Well" (or whatever it was
called). But yes, I think Tomino learned very early that Mecha tied his
hands story-telling wise. That's why I'm quite dissappointed to hear that
not only is Turn-A chock full of stereotypical anime giant-robot fights,
but that the fights are pretty much really generic. (Unlike Brainpowerd,
little as I've heard of it).

  You know what, I wouldn't put it past them... hell, the way old MS are
being dug up in Turn-A is kinda 'collector-ish' enough! Imagine a series
where that's the focus! (Shiver)
