That didn't happen to my friends. Well, mainly because I think we're all
used to giant robot shows and other anime when we grew up together. I think
that preconditioning helped navigate through those confusing elements you
mentioned. But then again, you guys did have Robotech and Starblazers.

We're debating - arguing has some emotional weight at stake. :) In this
case, we both agree that the movies were good - but I think its clear that
we differ on whether or not the movies were confusing.

That's ok. There's always the Gundam ML to ask around if stuff in the series
is confusing.
