You guys are probably reading way too much into it. Remember the big deal
about the original Gundam was how it was a big departure from the giant robot
genre's norms in transforming the robot's role from that of a surrogate
parent into soulless military machines. To think that Gundam harks back to
the 70s robot anime appears to be missing Tomino's point entirely.
