Whenever I watch the Gundam series, all I care about are the giant robots. I mean they could insert whatever themes they like, be it the ravages of war, terrorism, or whatever wild ideas they wish. Just make sure that the mechas look good enough. But apart from flying mobile suits ripping each other apart, I always get some undesirable bonuses that I never asked for. The thing about the Gundam series is that, although it revolves around the central anti-war theme, the people behind are not afraid to explore new ideas.
And the results may shock you.
