That has to do with the fact that the director of G Gundam (who's name
escapes me for the moment. It can be found on the Gundam Project) also
directed Giant Robo (Is this right? I know he did several traditional giant
robots). Thus, you have the flavorings of the classic good robot vs. the
monster of the week, albeit the monsters also happpen to be Gundams as well.

In essence, one could say it's Gundam finding its roots again, so to speak.

I'll be gone for awhile, but I doubt that you'll notice. Ciao all.
