Written and illustrated by Hideki Owada, the author of the AffectionateParody gag series ''[[Manga/KidouSenshiGundamSan Gundam-san]]'', ''Gundam Sousei'' takes the development team (and a few of the actors) from Anime/MobileSuitGundam and [[{{Dramatization}} cranks up their quirks and personalities]] [[UpToEleven to insane levels.]] The director is a chain-smoking, [[CoolShades shades-sporting]] badass, Sunrise's program director is NewMeat {{Moe}}, the character designer is a {{Bishounen}}, the mechanical designer is a [[WrenchWench grease monkey who draws on the side]], the list goes on. If the person was involved in the creation of ''Gundam'', they will be exaggerated. And HilarityEnsues. While most of the story focuses on how outrageous director YoshiyukiTomino is, the manga does take time out to show off some of the weird and peculiar facts surrounding the early years of ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' that may have fallen to the sands of time.

** It's not that big of an exaggeration for him either; in real life the man reportedly once forced himself to blackout during a flight school exercise as part of his research for MacrossPlus, much to the horror of his copilot.

** Tomino's main complain however, is that the factory being hypocritical themselves, selling 'incomplete' product as cutting cost measure for mass production. FridgeBrilliance?

* MorphicResonance: RealLife voice actors Creator/ToruFuruya and Rumiko Ukai are drawn ''a lot like'' Amuro Rei and Fraw Bow (respectively)[[note]]In RealLife, Furuya looks a ''lot'' like Amuro, albeit this could be as a side-effect of EnforcedMethodActing he has to do along the years[[/note]]. Creator/ShuichiIkeda is much less blatant about this, but you can still see a faint resemblance to Char. For some reason, there also is a Gihren Zabi {{Expy}} as a Bandai rep.

* HotBlooded: Tomino pretty much embodies this. More than a few times he seems to be channeling the soul of [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]], 40 years earlier. Pretty much any other named character gets at least one HB moment, to boot (even Momoe, who throws Tomino down a flight of stairs at one point), but Tomino outnumbers and outshines them all.
