Is mecha singular or plural or both?
Can mecha love mecha?
What would a planet of creatures evolved to be mecha be like?
If the last show you watched's main protagonist was replaced by a mecha, would it be better?
Is /qa/ a mecha board?
What's your favorite mecha show?
Are you looking forward to anything mecha-related? Does mecha have a future?
If mecha was an acronym what would it stand for?
I've been getting into my journey in the world of mecha by starting with Gundam I've finished 0079 and halfway into ZETA now and honestly I feel like I could skip this outside of Char this series seems pointless.
Though Kamille's design and the mechs are pretty Kamille is annoying I think he has autism.
I don't like it because it is stupid.>>68629
Robots don't have a gender.>>68630
I don't know.>>68631
Animals can't evolving into being robots.>>68633
Probably yes actually.>>68634
No, because they are a stupid design.>>68636
Frame Arm Girls if it counts as a Mecha but I don't think it does.>>68637
Seems like gundam is a popular starting point. I bet a lot of people started with Big O on Adult Swim. I think my first one was probably Evangelion if that counts.
>>68640>Robots don't have a gender.
Then how do they reproduce? Budding?
We already do!>>68639>I think he has autism.
He does and that's what makes Zeta so great.
I tell a lie though I actually started with MD Geist but I'm unsure if that counts..>>68643
Maybe and even though I say it could be skipped I can't bright myself to do that his autism fits sometimes triggers my own resulting in an near endless cycle of confusion and slight anger.
Like the otter and the watermelon.
I'd say even though Big O is really exceptional, Gundam remains the best starting point for most things mecha. Since most everything pulls from it.
When two engineers love each other very much...
how many planets did it take to build this thing
No Gundam I could post would ever beat that beast how would it even power itself?
maybe radiation from very compact stars?
inb4 this thread will still have 2 digits in 2023
Did you know that mecha is short for mechanical? I'm not sure if it is, but did you know?
Can't think of anything else it could be so I'll believe you
i dont watch much of it but there are ones i liked
never even watched gundam>>68636
What could a mech do against a really large magnet. Actually, what could any mechanical infantry do against a really large magnet. How come people don't employ huge flying mangets in warfare?
The Germans already thought about that, it's why they put zimmerit on their tanks.
I remember that game! I liked the side that had Peewees and the Big Bertha cannon. The commander being the commander and causing game over once he was killed was a nice idea as well.
OFFICIAL GUNDAM CHARTS COMING THROUGH
Use these as a guide for getting into Gundam if you haven't already, they're pretty good.
Yeah but which Gundam is the best
The one that belongs to the person you love
>>69186>Cons>Requires watching Destiny in order to make sense of events
It's that bad, huh?
Depends, does this
look like a respectable pilot to you? Joking aside the first half is somewhat decent and the final battle showing the Requiem is cool.
...Is this a girl?
You'll probably hate the first... 20 or so episodes of ZZ, but then it really picks up after a certain point. It'll be pretty obvious when that turning point is too.
The "trigger saved anime" thing bothers me.
Would you say it... trigger
Was mostly in jest, but it is a pretty good non-gundam mecha, and those aren't that common right now.
I enjoyed the first episode a lot, premise feels a bit similar to SukaSuka but much grittier.
Also like how it's not immediately obvious which faction is the worse one. On one hand one's using humans as disposable troops, while on the other side the enemy seems almost inhuman, though it could just be a perfection of the tech the empire is aiming for.
mc reminds me of that one guy from aldnoa/zero, but not as autistic
There's a new Gundam SEED project!
...For some reason
The only Gundam I could finish.
It's pretty fun, but what about Char's origin?
It's been on my to play list since the launch of 7th generation consoles...the only Gundam related games I've played are the fighters like Max Boost.
Didn't see anyone mention this yet, so here. Not sure what this means for the future of Macross though since they've still been making it.
Yeah, but I think he eventually figured out where he was and fixed his act.
Is it just me or does this look an awful lot like anime?
I think you're just imagining things.
Xenogears is my favourite JRPG of all time.>>72660
Yes and no. The guys behind Xenogears went onto create Xenosaga and Xenoblade, but Square is really, really stingy with the Xenogears IP and won't let Monolith Soft officially do anything with Xenogears. Legally, Xenoblade cannot explicitly connect to Xenogears.
This hasn't stopped Takahashi from rehashing Xenogears though, Xenoblade 2 in particular is very much a rehash of Perfect Works (his original plan from the 1990s to make Xenogears into a trilogy), there's a ton of parallels between XB2 and XG.
Xenoblade 2 may or may not be canonically connected to Xenosaga though in some weird metaverse way (Bamco's lets Monolith Soft use the Xenosaga IP still, fortunately), and Xenosaga is supposed to be connected to Xenogears despite legal issues.
they could always dishonesty retcon certain plot points. My faith in studios is low
I've been meaning to play the later games, but I've really enjoyed the first Armored Core so far (although the original controls are a little painful without rebinding them). Generally speaking, the critic reviews would seem to suggest that they're all fairly average games, but user reviews tend to be a lot more positive.
>Several story continuities exist, spread across 13 main games, 3 remastered re-releases, 2 console spin-offs, and 5 mobile spin-offs. The first release of the series, Armored Core, was released in 1997, while its twenty-third and final game, Armored Core: Verdict Day was released in 2013. The series has been released on the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Mobile Phone
I feel intimidated already. Guess I'll just watch it for the lore if there's a nice playthrough .
Shame that FromSoft changed so hard from Mecha into RPG, but I guess people in Japan started feeling more like escaping to fantasy land and away from a gritty reality.
also some Gundam Breaker ONA thing that is only on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEWXBMv-w7A
Megaton Musashi is on the super robot style of mecha, lots of technobabble and shouting out the HISSATSU WAZA
s and such.
Potentially building a complex story with a lot of characters, but we'll see where it goes. Could end up completely flopping, you never know.
I think the biggest problem with Musashi is that it's a mecha that had no mecha in the first episode. I might give it a try, but how do you do that?
yeah, they've had some really weird directional choices so far. Like you said, no mecha action in the first episode, despite that (at least so far) being a pretty big focus of the show. And they keep doing previews that end up having very little to do with the next episode. Feels like they're flying by the seat of their pants sometimes.
I think for what I'll be keeping up with Sakugan and Denchi Shoujo are what I'll be keeping up with. I'll probably save Muv-Luv for when it comes out on BD so that I can watch it all at once.
