How do you feel about Mecha? What's your favorite show?

Anonymous 6337

I like it a lot. I rewatched Gunbuster last week and I'm rewatching TTGL now.

NGE is not a conventional mecha show, but it's my favorite of all time.

Gundam is also among my favorites, but I don't really like late UC/AU shows, though SEED is a guilty pleasure of mine.

Started watching Gundam by release date, it was pretty fun watching the OG '79 Mobile Suit Gundam.

War in the Pocket is my personal favourite

Anonymous 6347

Personally, I think soyboy is the best. Unicorn has one of the best animations I've seen, but the story was just too convoluted to me.

I loved power rangers SPD as a kid. The SWAT megazord is my favourite.

Anonymous 6351


i find them tolerable at most, Gankutsuou had mecha fights out of nowhere and i didn't hate them… too much.

Anonymous 6352


Super Dimension Fortress Macross is really fucking good. There's drama, an excellent romance subplot imo, and it's just a really good story overall. Also shills the importance of music and positive cultural exchange. I'm planning on watching Macross 0 next and I'll let y'all know what I think :P

Wonder if "soyboy" was a filter or my cellphone corrector.

Don't mind Mecha but I cannot stand Tomino's legit autistic directing. It is so awful and unrelatable, just like watching an autist trying to imitate normal human interactions with a story that goes all over the place.

Anonymous 6364


You should see it in a more snarky way. The fact that almost every newtype carries strong autistic traits (Judau being the main exception here) makes the whole thing even funnier, especially considering how gritty are some of the shows.

im surprised no one has mentioned neon genesis evangelion yet

Anonymous 6406

I love NGE as much as the next miner but despite being a Mecha is also a deconstruction of the genre. Of course having giant robots is cool, but that ain't what NGE is about.

Anonymous 6412

I wish mecha wasn't a dead genre.

Anonymous 6423

Just because there aren't serious mecha shows coming out each season doesn't make it dead.

Gundam 00

Anonymous 6683

Im not sure if this applies but there is a Gundam video game that came our on the ps4 fairly recently. So if you're into gundam I would recommend it, its called gundam Maxi boost on.

Anonymous 6698

I thoroughly enjoyed Seed and Destiny.

Anonymous 6704

NGE is the only mecha i've watched and i watched it pretty recently and don't understand it at all which i guess is a common sentiment

Anonymous 6720

I've only seen NGE, and a show whose name I can't remember but stole the plot from NGE, so I guess NGE?

Anonymous 6721


It's like 2001: A Space Odyssey, you're not supposed to grasp everything in the first time without thinking a bit. That's one of the reasons why it's such an amazing show.

Anonymous 6724


>It's like 2001: A Space Odyssey,
You can say that again, akchually,
some Evangelion elements were implicitely referring to 2001.
The main ones being the Seele monoliths and the delicate design of Ramiel.

Anonymous 7254

For me, it's Dai Guard and Gun x Sword. Most of yall already mentioned stuff that I like in the thread .

Code Geass by far. Lelouch a cute.

Mashymre-sama deserved better

When you write z e t a it becomes soyboy.

i LIKE evangelion because i relate to asuka a lot, it's in my top 5 ever, but the BEST mecha i've seen is by far Vision of Escaflowne. i adore Hitomi as a protagonist. the movie sucks though.

Anonymous 23041

oh right plus it's a shoujo that helps

Anonymous 23042

Awesome, Escaflowne is my favorite mecha show. I also really like Gundam 0079 and Build Fighters. I like Evangelion but I also like Rahxephon which most people say is just an NGE knockoff but I like it more. I should mention Code Geass which is one of the last anime I really liked (yes I'm a boomer). I like Transformers too, hopefully that counts even though it's not really anime.
Also this and sci-fi in general. I miss the 90s.

Anonymous 23043

i don't really like mechas, actually! i had no idea NGE was a mecha going in, i somehow knew nothing about it even in 2020. Escaflowne i knew, but i watched with my best friend so i stuck with it. i cried at the end, [when Celena lived and Van didn't kill Allen]Text[/spoiler].
hopefully that spoiler works

Anonymous 23047

I'm watching the first Gundam movies right now as an introduction to the franchise, because there's a couple Gundam series I'm interested in watching.
I'm still in the middle of the second movie.

>i LIKE evangelion because i relate to asuka a lot
lol, why does everyone says they relate to Asuka? I mean, I loved Eva, but I didn't really feel like I related with any one character that much. If anything, I'd say I relate to Rei or if we're not counting Rei because of certain reasons Ritsuko more than the others, maybe.

lol, I wonder why that filter was made.

>hopefully that spoiler works
No anon, it didn't work. I think you still have a bit of time to delete your post and correct that.
Your spoiler should go in between the spoiler tags. The spoiler tags are the two "spoiler" inside the brackets and should be left intact.
Basically, you should've replaced the "Text" part of the example with your spoiler.

Anonymous 23054

Is NGE really considered a mecha?

Anonymous 23062

That first quote was meant for the OP lol

It seems to be considered "borderline". In practice, saying that Eva is your favorite "mecha" show might imply that you don't really like the genre.

I loved Getter Robo manga series, Particularly Go, Ishikawa Ken's art is juicy as hell but all the anime and OVA adaptions kind of suck.

Anonymous 24173


Uhh I only remember Gundam Wing because of the hot guys.

Anonymous 24174

I liked in the manga when they recruited the "cool" guy who was part of that student group and on his first sortie when he had no idea what was going on, he was just insane with fear despite being a big badass.

Anonymous 24177

I've heard somewhere else that Gundam Wing is a show for girls because it has a lot of hot guys and strong female characters. Is that true?

Anonymous 24182


For me it's Bokurano

Space Runaway Ideon was a really cool series, although the middle was weak and the you probably could have trimmed it down to 26 episodes without losing much. I cried a lot during the movie and a few times during the show. Great anime! I strongly recommend it if you like Tomino. Or even if you like Eva since it clearly influenced Anno a lot.

But I think Ideon itself kind of looks dorky so I'm posting the superior Mecha.

Anonymous 24259


Ideon itself looks too much like a Transformer for my tastes.

Anonymous 24281

probably too late to reply but i relate to Asuka because of childhood trauma that's very similar to hers. lots of abuse from my mother etc
i forgot about this thread since i'm not a frequent user, sadly i can't edit the post now but thank you for explaining how spoilers work!
see above

Anonymous 24578

can concur, ideon is great if you can get past its inherent goofiness.
prepare to be depressed afterwards though

Anonymous 24581

Yes to the first part but I don't remember any of the female characters except Lady Une. It is mostly about the five guys in that pic
