Gotta disagree here, the mecha may have some similarities in proportion to
the AT, but it has its own direction. The world of Terra Nova is actually
somewhere between Dougram and Xabungle. The plot though is twice as
complicated as Babylon 5, and thus the focus of the show. I generally want
to see the character interation, and the plot could rival any anime.
Besides, Bandai is only doing the toys, Sony is doing the animation.
