Subject: [gundam] gundam references in anime

I've just been re-watching the first 3 episodes of Nadesico, and I noticed a
couple - firstly, the scene at the beginning of ep. 1 with the Tulip falling
on Mars looks exactly like the colony drop sequence, and I have a feeling
that Yurika fantasizing about Akito telling her "Omae o korosu" is a GW ref.

Also, this isn't anime but I noticed a couple of Gundam refs in the Mekton Z
"Invasion Terra" book - there's a character called "North Frozen" (a ref to
0083's South Burning), and the scenario where the ESPer Lens-equipped mecha
appears is called "A New Type of Weapon" (Get it? Newtype? Awful pun).
And while I'm on RPGs, I think the Sakura in Lightning Strike: Behind The
Veil is basically the Alpha Aziel.
