Thanks for the post script, now let me comment on this

Does this mean to say he dislikes the giant robot genre altogether? I
have heard that this is/was the case.
>... I had to admit to myself that I chased my own dream too much.
Now what is wrong with that Tomino? It's your work after all.
> Second complaint was that 'we do not want to see a married Amuro in a movie'."
would anyone here care? This a shift from what we have assumed on the
list that Belotchika's child was conceived out of wedlock, however
acceptance of this is definitely cultural.
> it must have lots of fighting, enough to gather complaints from the PTA.
I find that rather funny :)

No wonder Tomino has been so pissed at Sunrise and Bandai et al. I am
surprised that he did F91 after all this.
