It's easy to distinguish between humanoid and non-humanoid mecha shows.
But how do you distinguish between giant robot shows from non-giant robot
shows? I think any definition you come up with will put one or another
Gundam shows embarassingly close to be a giant robot show. Especially G
Gundam is most definitely a giant robot show.

If you are making a list for yourself, what to include and what to exclude
is of course your own prerogative. But if you are making a list for a web
site or for research, I think you should include all the giant robot
shows. I think it will be a very interesting list.
