Most realistic mecha series?
Mechas are just weapons, and there is no space bullshit.. it's near future.
Anything like that exist?
Why don't you just watch old WWII footage if you want realistic?
The closest things to 'realistic' that I can think of are the mechs in Gasaraki and even then they need alien demon zombie ghosts to make them work.
>falls apart if someone blows on it
Part of that was the fact that, in the first fight, they replaced its armor with something easier to haul around (since it was a glorified paperweight at that point), and that something was fucking ZINC. Even by the second fight they got the right armor on it.
Mechs were still the coffins we know and love.
Dougram-like story set in 21st century by the guy who made Dougram.
Wish he cold make a mecha series around Kurita for promo stuff, completing everything in a circle.
>what is International Space Station
>implying it is not Terra defence force's mech orbiting to protect earth from random meteorites ,asteroids and whatever space can throw
>we are already living in a mecha setting , yet we will never know the service ISS-kun does, like a true Showa era Kamen Rider.
"Is more realistic" clearly obeys reflexivity and transitivity, and I doubt any two shows are perfectly equally realistic, so clearly (realism, mecha shows) constitutes a partially ordered set.
Every finite poset has a maximal element, so clearly one exists.

Apart from Ryosuke Takahashi stufff and little sprinkles like Xabungle and Front mission, you aren't getting much.
If you're looking for realism in mecha, then you're looking into the wrong genre.
Not that there aren't any, but mecha is a man's fantasy. You're supposed to suspend your disbelief because that's part of the fun.
I still don't see the problem, gerndum still gives you dozens of robots working off electric motors, nuke reactors and probably hydrazine thrusters on frames that look like they make geometric sense and have a good balance of technomilitary gubbins about them. That's how I judge 'realism' of mecha.
>clearly (realism, mecha shows) constitutes a partially ordered set.
Transitivity is not observed in this set, so it can't be partially ordered. For example, Patlabor is more realistic than UC Gundam, which is more realistic than Sidonia, but Patlabor is _less_ realistic than Sidonia.
Thus there is no extremal elements to be found, m8. Sorry.
I think it had them once but they're gone now.
It really does need some. A mod, a janitor, something.
So you want a mech show that is entirely terrestrial based, and the machines are low tech~ish?
I'd almost suggest the A.D Police, just imagine the machines there with little superfluous extremities and a little head.
>mech are military hardware
>based on war on terror
really anon you could had done better, you are on /m/ afterall
>robot as weapons
>no space bullshit
Those statements don't fit.
Of course, unless you mean they treat the robots as regular weapons, in which case there are plenty. A down-to-earth setting, perhaps? Or do you not want magic(And even then th?
When you mean "realistic", what do you want? Any examples of shows that does a particular aspect realistic enough that you like?
Robots as weapons aren't realistic at all, but we can find shows with other aspects that are somewhat realistic.
Alternatively, do you want a series with its own well-defined rules on how its seemingly magical stuff works and they stick to those rules?
Well you are not going to get realistic giant robot series whatsoever. If you can settle for tanks, airplanes and boats I know there is shows for that.
Considering that drones will be used more and more by America and other first world countries in war it would be expected that an anime about drones doing strikes against insurgents, bomb diffusal drones, and surveillance drones may air.
The real fun begins when the military starts using drones like the ones in Shadowrun. Now that is a mecha anime I want to watch.
>there will never be an anime whsre mechas are completely mechanized weapons created for earth combat
>you will never get a series where mecha teams are tough women and masculine soldiers, and mechs which are rugged and built like tanks, not flimsy airplane-esque shit flown by underage homosexuals
As far as I'm concerned, 08th MS Team fits that description fairly well.
