These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Mobile Suit Gundam The Plot To Assassinate Gihren
Author's Saving Throw: Considering how much slack Zeon is cut by many, after literally murdering billions on Earth with colony drops, and endless rehashes of various, "Neo Zeon" factions who were little more than terrorists, it's nice to see a chunk of Zeon's soldiers and leadership finally become so disgusted with what their country had become, they were willing to risk their lives to change the status quo.
Complete Monster: Prince Gihren Zabi. This series adds further crimes to his name, like arranging two elaborate false assassination plots with himself as the supposed victim trying to frame Kycilia. When Det. David Schiller became an Unwitting Pawn in one of these schemes, he was rewarded by seeing his entire family (members of the anti-Zabi faction) imprisoned or executed.
Rooting for the Empire: Designed to exploit this, by having a Zeon vs. Zeon conflict, in which democrats and Zeon Deikun loyalists battle Gihren's faction.
