ROTFL.. you liked G Gundam but not Gundam Seed? Man... Please do not tell me again why you hate seed haha, you have said it more than once. But seed is superior to G- Gundam, they should have not mixed Gundam with dragon ball z.. I of course respect your opinion, its why we are individuals after all.
Dragonball didn't pioneer the elements in G-Gundam. G Gundam takes its influence and elements from classical Super Robot anime from the 1970s and 80s, such as Mazinger Z, Choudenji Robo Combattler V, Fighting King Daimos, Getter Robo, and so on and so forth. The biggest example of this is Domon's brother, who takes the name and likeness from Kouji Kabuto, the protagonist of Mazinger Z, and the template of all hotblooded super robot pilots. Like I said, as a Gundam
anime, G Gundam was terrible, but as a homage to the Super Robot
genre of anime, it was great.
As a Super Robot anime in the same vein as GaoGaiGar, GoDannar and Gurren-Lagann, G Gundam does not disappoint. Seed is a Super robot anime hiding under a Real Robot facade, while G Gundam does not hide from its Super Robot trappings. It embraces them.
