1) basic lead characters are of the same age. In fact, if you put all the
gboys together, you might make a gestalt that kinda comes close to what
amuro rei was.

2) the basic problem of earth vs. colonies.

3) the political double-crossing.

4) the use of feudal title names.

5) the use of european historical-style costumes.

6) having mecha around.

7) having something dropping onto the earth, be it a colony, asteroid or a
big space station.

..silence is the language of the heart...
