99% of mecha are shit, but you can still sometimes find a pretty good one if you know how to look. Kuromukuro is honestly pretty good, though it's criminally underrated at the moment (again, likely due to the number of shiteaters in the mecha fanbase).

I don't like mecha as well, mostly because the aesthetic doesn't appeal to me given that fighting with giant robots is pretty retarded.

I have no idea why I'm not as into mecha as I am.

When I was a kid, I'd pretend I was in a mech under my blankets and act like my shit just got fucked up by a missile or something. Yell frantically about rerouting power to the this or that to try and get the mech running again.

I'd sit in class and design mechs and battlebots. Played the fuck outta Mech Warrior, Mech Assault, and Steel Battalion.

But when it comes to mecha anime: "eh fuck all that shit."

Kayden Barnes

No, I avoid mecha anime too, it typically is very uninteresting to me.

I don't even like Transformers very much.
Megas XLR was fun though, but that's more of a parody.

Personally, I can't quite describe it in an exact way, but the designs are somehow always very uninteresting, and the fighting feels less fun.

Even I know you're wrong.

No, mecha is shit. My only regrets is that I missed CG and TTGL when they were airing.

David Cook
David Cook

Me too, I think because I like seeing physical skill in humans rather than their robots. A feat doesn't feel as impressive when an inanimate object is mostly to thank, and I'm not 12 so the fights aren't particularly cool to me.

This. Faggots in this thread seem to mostly think mecha is all about the robots without realizing that there are other things to enjoy in a mecha anime.

It's like saying all-girl SoL shows is all about cute girls, and if the girls aren't cute the show is shit, while disregarding atmosphere, humour, visuals, etc that make the show good.

Josiah Lopez
Josiah Lopez

Yes, all these people and you're a special snowflake with views that no one else has ever had.

No, you're not the only one. You are never the only one, so stop with the "Am I the only one" bullshit, becuase the answer is always no.

It's hardly ever done right. Aside from effeminate protaganists (usually teenagers) in shitty scenarios that dont really suit the war aspect that usally comes with mechs, the mecha themselves usually look generic as fuck and all of them feel the same.
It wasnt a particularly good anime, but one thing Big O did right was giving their giant robots a sense of weight, they were sluggish, not particularly agile and were built like tanks that would just shrug off most damage. Giant robots shouldnt be some hyper agile, speedy shit that teleports beind you with a laser katana.

This user right here. I used to avoid mecha like plague because it didn't click with me. Only because I thought it didn't click with me. I consider it one of my favorite genres cause of 0079. You're limiting yourself because of what a genre entails. Hell, SOLs consisting mostly of girls that lack humor bore the shit out of me but I still spare it 4-5 episodes before dropping it. I never really enjoyed it but I'm sure I'll find something. You'll be surprised to like something you just weren't "in" to like you claim.

Not that user but good stories can be made despite it being mecha. There are shows that primarily focus on mecha which some anons sadly think most mecha are about. There are mecha shows that have stories that don't revolve around mecha. And while the latter stories can be played off with other modern weaponry like tanks and such, it's not as cool nor does it sell as well. You can find good characters and stories that vary from war is bad to weird SOL or Idols and robots.

And while I'm not fully into the whole robot thing, using a robot in your story could bring about cool things that spaceships and tanks can't. spaceships can't swordfight in space. It also helps stave off suspension of disbelief you'll get from more down to earth weaponry.

It's such a broad genre, though; and the mecha are often more of a motif than anything. I'd have a hard time finding a commonality between G Gundam, TTGL, and FMP outside of "here come dat bot".

I love mecha, Gunbuster is one of my favorite series. I just finished Ideon and SDF Macross and am working my way through Mobile Suit Gundam now.

I dunno I just like the style of them for some reason. I mean what's cooler than giant robots blowing shit up?

Mecha is absolute garbage for manchildren, the only good one was Geass and that was like ten years ago.

After you finish 500 animes you'll realize that the only genre worth watching is Slice of Life and yuri.

I avoid yuri, slice of life, anything based on LN's or VN's, ecchi, harems, ecchi battle harems, romance, moe, music, shonen (or fighting anime in general), anything that's 100% episodic and 99% of newer anime, like the plague.

Seinen, old manly anime, mecha and the few rare shows that break the norm and don't have fucking superpowerd teenagers in some fucking highschool. Retro always wins, and all light novel adaptations can burn in hell.

No. Mecha is a niche, and one that isn't very popular these days. Most mainstream profiles have

I only watch Pretty Cure, mostly. The other things on my backlog get worked on slowly, between lots of precure episodes. I'm afraid of getting caught up and having to wait for week to week translations though. I'm already mostly done with Smile. Fuck. Japan should start making two seasons of Pretty Cure every year. Do you guys like rice? I'm gonna go eat some rice. Maybe work out after, watch some pretty cure while I do. Pretty cure.

Justin Allen
Justin Allen

But why these?
There are some good ones in here.

Music is just fapbait for otakus (unless it's something like beck). Anime does a shit job with romance, it's always emotionaly manipulative crap or 23 episode cock tease, for a confession/kiss. (Clannad after story being an only good romance, that shows what happens after a kiss. Still ruined by forced drama and a bullshit time reset ending). Shonen an fighting anime is just a waste of time. I don't care who beats up who, or who has more broken powers, unless it's something completely over the top and self aware (like jojo, kill a kill or hellsing ultimate), I'm not interested.

There's a lot of different mecha. Super Robots like Mazinger, Kotestsujin Jeeg and Getter have a certain fun charm to them, with fun, admirable protagonists and wacky Giant robot moves such as electromagnetic yo-yos or flying rocket punches.
There's also Macross and it's focus on idols and music, and Gundam with its war drama. Not to mention the ton of mecha that are somewhat in between super robot and real robot like Overman King Gainer.

There's a ton of good mecha, though most of it is really shit nowadays.

Robot Girls Z was great, but Z Plus is unironically my favorite 21st century mecha.

Mazinkaiser OVAs are decent.
The original Getter Robo anime isn't all that great. Read the manga instead.
