The OH! team is doing a series of mini-posts in which each member explores the most important lesson anime has taught them.
Giant mecha are instruments of destruction and desolation. They’re for fighting wars and breaking lots and lots of stuff. Turn-A Gundam radically changed all this by transporting poultry, swine, and a fine specimen of cow through hostile territory; directly preventing the starvation of a refugee family.
Message to Celestial Being: Gundams can be for peace yo! Destroying military installations and enemy mecha is well and good, but sometimes saving a cow is fine too.
