  • AldNoah.Zero is an awesome mecha that's suppose to be getting a third season here in a year or so. Good story, good character design, and amazing fight scenes what more could you want in an anime.

  • Unicorn was awesome until the end. The it dove off a cliff. The love and friendship will see us through anime ending crap that infected anime through the time Gundam 00 and Unicorn ended was awful. It also ruined several games and other great Shows.

  • When I was 7-8 yrs old, I remember switching the channel to Cartoon Network late at night, and there was a mecha airing. I don't remember the name of it, I just remember seeing a girl/woman inside the chest part of the mecha, with like tubes (or tentacles?) coming out of her from her entire body. It seemed like the mecha had taken over her because she was unconscious (if I remember correctly). Does anyone know the name of this anime? It left such a strong impression on me as a kid, that sometimes I remember that scene every now and then.

  • Japan had its own agenda during world war 2, though seeing as Germany as a large power with similar ideas, Japan became an allies. Germany started fucking with Europe and Jewish people primarily whilst Japan was invading China; killing thousand of innocents including that of women, children, and babies. Note: Japan was responsible for that largest invasion every recorded in history with a death toll of 35 million.

  • I disagree with the idea that the mecha genre is declining because we're in a period of relative peace. If that were the case, then we wouldn't see movies like Avengers Endgame doing as well as it did. People really enjoy conflict. I would say that it has to do more with the idea that you have the older anime, like Gundam, that had a more complex story, and the mechs had a more simplistic design, at least compared to mechs in newer mecha anime. I think bad/mediocre story combined with over-stylized designs for war machines make it easy to pass over newer titles. That's just my two cents on the idea of why newer mecha anime fail.

  • personally i blame neon genesis evangelion for the lack of mech shows, because neon genesis evangelion is shit and the worst written anime i have even seen, i would not even say it is trash, because trash can have value, evanglion has none.

  • promare exists now i guess

  • There's no such thing as a fall. They said the genre was extinct, then Eva came out and everyone and their Mom were watching mech anime. Then we had incredible stuff like GL. Now we have the new Eva movies, new Gundam series... All it gets is a single popular series and everyone will jump on the robot wagon again immediately, period.

  • It’s really interesting seeing how popular the original Mecha genre became, it even spread somewhat to the UK where I live: I used to wake up on weekends and watch the original Transformers, which shares a lot of similarities with some of the early colourful Mecha shows destined for mechanising. Honestly that show was really good, or at least that’s how I remember it. It definitely got successful enough to have merchandise.

  • With shows like Darling In the Franxx, its no wonder why the mecha genre is declining.

  • Gundam and Evangelion defined and did so much for the genre that they killed it...

  • I really like shows like gundam and code geass because they are essentially war animes, but as a real life war interrested history buff I am always a bit confused that in these animes they see these humanoid tanks as the next big thing, while in practice, they would have a huge variety of drawbacks and in terms of armor and firepower they would be inferior to a classic tank, not to mention the over complicated design and the huge shiluette making them awesome target practice. I am in a weird spot, because I am kinda split in that reguard. all that I know is that I enjoy watching them and I think thats enough.
