><Anonymous> like say someone starts a thread about mecha it's gonna take two years to reach 200 posts

Let's prove him wrong.

Do you like mecha? Do you dislike mecha? Why?


File:[Serenae] Tropical-Rouge! ….jpg (275.59 KB,1920x1080)

Can girls be mecha? Can mecha be girls?


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?


File:[SubsPlease] Non Non Biyor….jpg (126.99 KB,1280x720)

Do you think we'll have real mecha in our lifetimes?


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.

Robots don't have a gender.

I don't know.


Animals can't evolving into being robots.

Probably yes actually.


No, because they are a stupid design.

Frame Arm Girls if it counts as a Mecha but I don't think it does.

No. Yes.



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.


>Robots don't have a gender.
Then how do they reproduce? Budding?


We already do!

>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..
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.

Ok mechadorks, show me your BIGGEST giant robots


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?


By feeding on other planets.


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

Oh yeah... And tank anime are a part of the mecha genre too, so that makes sense


i dont watch much of it but there are ones i liked
never even watched gundam

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.


File:1439621389363.jpg (544.37 KB,800x600)

It can get so fucking huge that the universe just collapses in on itself in its presence.


File:qute.jpeg (353.48 KB,1125x1600)

The best mecha are girls and the best girls are mecha


These visuals were so amazing when this game came out. You played as the commander guy which is basically a huge mech that builds stuff.


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.



Use these as a guide for getting into Gundam if you haven't already, they're pretty good.

Don't forget this one!


FCUK zz gundam


Yeah but which Gundam is the best


The one that belongs to the person you love


0079 and Zeta.


>Requires watching Destiny in order to make sense of events
It's that bad, huh?


File:Kira.png (5.08 MB,1700x2140)

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?




Just finished ZETA and I ended up really liking Kamille in the end only to get heart broken about what happens to him in the finale three episodes outside of the guides and listening to OPs I've been going about this totally blind and I'm about to enter ZZ. I guess best of luck in thinking this isn't too bad...


File:zeta to zz.gif (498.33 KB,471x355)

There is an inverse correlation between love for Zeta and love for ZZ, so have fun.


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.


File:53748040cc9b59c0949189d41….jpeg (513.46 KB,707x1000)

ZZ is a heavily mixed bag but it's worth watching for the Purus.


File:[SubsPlease] SSSS.Dynazeno….jpg (140.73 KB,1280x720)

If it's a mecha thread then lets talk about how trigger's saved anime by making the most mecha mecha since the last one that was good whenever that was


The "trigger saved anime" thing bothers me.


File:carlos.jpg (34.54 KB,600x600)

Would you say it... triggered you?


No. I wouldn't.


Was mostly in jest, but it is a pretty good non-gundam mecha, and those aren't that common right now.


Maybe this could be good, I say as I won't watch this until someone can confirm to me it's good.


File:1611973794403.jpg (154.77 KB,960x720)

i like big robots


I enjoyed the first episode a lot, premise feels a bit similar to SukaSuka but much grittier.


File:[SubsPlease] 86 - Eighty S….jpg (245.09 KB,1280x720)

Well this was neat. you're right. I wasn't able to make out the mech designs in the trailer, but spiderlike-tank mechs are a pretty unique design.


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


File:image.jpeg (80.48 KB,995x720)

Ahhh nooo stop acknowledging SEEDs existence Japan!


File:Good game for the first di….jpg (175.14 KB,1000x750)

Have you played Xenogears?


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.


File:84218007_p0.jpg (410.37 KB,778x1100)

Is it at all related to Xenoblade?


Better than SEED, there's a new Getter Robo anime coming out that covers the final arc! Finally got around to reading the manga for it, and I plan to rewatch Shin and Armageddon too.


File:Getter Robo Go v01 c01-04.….png (890.86 KB,1647x1300)

I gotta say it's pretty crazy how big the artstyle shift was from the original series and G to Go. It's a lot more detailed and garish than the original, and less like Go Nagai.


File:89272834_p0.jpg (1.24 MB,835x1248)

I think there's references, but nothing tied to it since Xenogears is in licensing limbo. I don't think there's any blatant links like Xenosaga had, but I still need to play the games. I don't have any of the consoles so I need to emulate and I've been procrastinating about setting it up. I think I've seen images of something shaped like a Zohar in some Xenoblade image, but I'm not sure if I'm remembering right



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.


File:mashymre.jpg (67.8 KB,1068x761)

I think this man got lost on his way to an Excel Saga Gundam parody episode only to find himself on the genuine thing.


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.


How mecha is 40k?


File:[SDM] Getter Robot Aramged….jpg (260.5 KB,1440x1080)



Speaking of Xenogears (to me a few weeks ago)


File:Emeralda Poppi.jpg (281.11 KB,850x1202)

Xenogears is my favourite JRPG of all time.

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.


File:Xenosaga Zohar Xenoblade 2….jpg (104.21 KB,1981x719)

Adding to this, so technically if Monolith doubles down on Xenoblade being connected with Xenosaga rather than just teasing the possibility, then Xenoblade is connected with Xenogears since Xenosaga is heavily implied to be connected to Xenogears.


they could always dishonesty retcon certain plot points. My faith in studios is low


File:ss_fdd00b847a236b148f48134….jpg (370.63 KB,1920x1080)

SRW 30 is coming to PC in October this year and you should be pre-purchasing it to please the mecha gods.



File:Magic Knight Rayearth 11 ….jpg (325.23 KB,1440x1080)

Need to get back to Rayearth. Got halfway through it and then just kinda put it on hold indefinitely.


File:[xPearse] Magic Knight Ray….png (1.31 MB,960x720)

Yeah, I finished S1 but wasn't in any rush to start S2 at the time. I probably should fix that sometime.


Does anyone else like FromSoft's original mecha game? I've listened to the tracks only


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.


File:fa5f981e0d.png (18.03 KB,278x509)

>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.


File:[SubsPlease] Gyakuten Seka….jpg (174.84 KB,1280x720)

There's at least ==FIVE of them this season, so what do you think? Megaton-kyuu Musashi, Muv-Luv, Sakugan, Gyakuten Sekai no Denchi Shoujo, and Kyoukai Senki.
Muv-Luv is a VN adaptation obviously so no one should watch that unless they've read all of it which can be a tall order. I'll read it eventually...
Musashi is based on a video game and didn't spark any interest in me.
Sakugan looks like it's going to be filled with a whole lot of suffering, but could be great. I don't think I want to deal with one of those shows right now.
Denchi Shoujo has a VERY cute girl in it and seems decent enough at the moment. Very bizarre story and I'm curious to see how crazy things get.
Kyoukai Senki is another one of those 'honorable Japanese must expel conquering foreigners' things and doesn't interest me.


also some Gundam Breaker ONA thing that is only on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEWXBMv-w7A


File:[Nofunloli] Megaton-kyuu M….jpg (140.09 KB,1920x1080)

Megaton Musashi is on the super robot style of mecha, lots of technobabble and shouting out the HISSATSU WAZAs 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.


File:[SubsPlease] 86 - Eighty S….jpg (Spoiler Image,267.57 KB,1920x1080)

Also it's pretty crazy that in a single season there's potentially 5 above average mecha, and 3 that have really high potential. Wonder if it's starting to make a comback.

Also 86 s2 is airing if anyone's watching that, which I was somewhat excited for but now I'm not so sure after seeing that they copped out from having the main character die and be converted to the legion.
