G Gundam is a show aimed at kids of the age group impressionable enough to
buy toys based on what they see on TV.

Kids in Japan identify different countries by their most well-known landscape
and stereotypes.

|
V

If you get too sophisticated and try to avoid well-known "country identifiers"
then you risk losing your audience who will find it impossible to make sense
of what is going on or who everyone is.

No one will sponsor your show if there is too much risk associated with it.

|
V

No sponsor, no show to put on the air.

|
V

No show, no job, you starve.

Comprendi?
