I remember joking to Conty a few years back about the sure sign of a Tomino
Gundam -- the mother figure.

Oedipal and Sprockets jokes aside, the non-Tomino Gundam series didn't
feature the main characters' mothers prominently, but almost all the Tomino
Gundam series did feature the main characters' mother figures. ZZ was not
so clear-cut, but that one notably bizarre image at the end of the series
was enough to give it at least honorable mention. (I hope I worded that
last sentence to avoid any spoilers. ^^)

What this says about Tomino, I refuse to speculate. ^^
