Most realistic mecha series?
Mechas are just weapons, and there is no space bullshit.. it's near future.
Anything like that exist?
>>
>>13733974
Dai Guard.
>Only one mech initially exists
>Expensive as hell to operate
>falls apart if someone blows on it
>>
>>13733974
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.

There is none.
>>
>>13733974
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Patlabor, which is everything you said except without any warfare in it so I doubt it's what you want.
>>
>>13733974
Patlabor has a realistic premise, and fits the near future, no space

Basically Cop Mecha for stopping crime committed using contruction mecha
>>
>>13733987
>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.
>>
>>13734411
>>mankind stepped on the moon in 1969
And aside from sending out lots of probes and satellites, that's pretty much all we've done since then.

>no VOTOMS
guys we literally have VOTOMS
you can buy one right now for $1000000

FLAG?

VOTOMS is full of space magic at the end though
>>

The fuck is flag?

Flag or Gasaraki.

Although Gasaraki has some mystic elements.

Ryosuke Takahashi is your man.

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.

Gasaraki sort of
>>
>>13737110
"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.
>>
>>13737228
Then go watch votoms, patlabor, dougram, dai-guard and uc gerndem.

Also mecha involves space nearly 100% of the time.

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.
>>
>>13737257
Most realistic full proportioned with hand weapons. The designs don't look like anything that can't be built and at least feel like military hardware.
>>
>>13737370
Except for all the weapons operated by literal space magic, right?
>>
>>13737372
That doesn't kick in until the last few episodes/pick a different OVA. You still get your zakus and jegans so I don't see the problem.
>>
>>13737372
>literal space magic
I didn't know brainwaves were magic.
>>
>>13737389
thinking is pretty rare on 4chan, so I guess brain waves are like magic in terms of their unrealistic nature
>>
>>13737393
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.
>>
>>13737228
>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.
>>
>>13737242
>Mecha involves space nearly 100% of the time
Watch more "super robot" shows and type that again.
>>
>>13737312
I think it had them once but they're gone now.
It really does need some. A mod, a janitor, something.
>>
>>13733974
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.
>>
>>13733974
Megazone 23
Takes place in the not too distant future(shh), and has motorcycles that double as body armor.
The ending is wacky but fuck it, it was alright.

>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?
>>
Watch dougram you cunt

Megas XLR.

Even the bulk of Takahashi's stuff has a "But..." attached to it.

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.

FLAG bitches.

Which edition and book should I start with shadowun ?

I have only played the vidya games, go onto /tg/ and check the Shadowrun general, obviously you should read the readme in the OP post first before asking what version to play.

Give Heavy Object a try
