<< Was there an anime before
 Gundam that established the difference, or is Gundam the sole grandfather
 of all serious sci-fi mecha shows? >>

Well, I think we discussed this earlier. The main reason why Gundam was
different was because mobile suits weren't invincible, and they were based on
the backdrop of a war currently in progress. Heinlein did the same, but now
with larger versions of mecha.
