Any ani/m/e where the mechs aren't fuck-huge?
Just finished geass, and liked the size of the /m/ in that show a lot.
Let me know
Love you guys
There's a vignette in the film "Short Peace" you should check out.
KMFs are based loosely on, or at least follow the same design philosophy as VOTOMS.
KMFs also look like LFOs, specifically KLFs. Like the Sutherland is the same robot as the KLF.
Nadesico's Aestivalis line also are bigger than KMFs, but are still quite small and have treads which act as skates.
I thought that Votoms would be an ideal place to get my friend in to more mecha stuff.
He couldn't make it past the Woodo/Uudo/whatever arc. Apparently he couldn't stand the animation. Or the sheer frequency of which those biker gangs used that horn of theirs.
First off, nice dubs, second off it helped with my suspension of disbelief.
They weren't 18 meters tall like a gundam, they measured in at only about 6 meters. They were small enough to be used tactically, but large enough to handle tanks and boats etc.
They were the perfect size for nearly every job. They were almost believable.
I don't like the sky scraper mechs, especially when they are shown as being disposable (zakus!)
It's more believable that glorified power armor could be disposable..
Idk, it's just me.
I'm not a realfag or anything.. I like /m/ tropes, and I don't mind supernatural or fantasy stuff with my robots either. I just like the big power armor model of mecha
Watch King Gainer
>as being disposable
By assholes. Zeon clearly preferred the use of low-numbered, advanced, high-powered and specialized machines. The Federation used sheer numbers for when it came to mobile suits.
At least, as far as I can tell.
Yeah, from 1988. The anime Maraduer is pretty nice.
Full Metal Panic
>I don't mind supernatural or fantasy stuff
Oh boy, you're gonna love Gasaraki.
There's Flag made by Takahashi also.
Are there any other shows with mechs with that kind of organic look to them?
Or maybe shows with mechs that aren't necessarily organic but have a lot of nice rounded features and shapes
Satan tripes confirms it's true
But gives you bruises,right?
Apart from already mentioned , Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01 and SD gundam MK I-V as mechs are as high as the human characters.
He enjoyed 08th, as well at Stardust, even though he may have bitched about how the characters acted. He couldn't stand Al enough to get past the first two episodes or so of War in the Pocket.
judging from that he will probably like stargazer,macross plus,gundam the origin (if he doesn't mind CG) and possibly the code geass OVAs.
Are you trying to get him into the mecha genre or are you trying to get him into anime?
>Any ani/m/e where the mechs aren't fuck-huge?
Not an ani/m/e but it's a human-size mecha.
I understand where you're coming from I didn't start branching out until I started watching macross and Eva after that I eventually be came a consumer of most anime genres.
You might wanna check out some of sunrises non-gundam mecha works since they give off the same vibes
I loved Big O, though it was yet another one my friend didn't like
though maybe I should've gotten him to watch further than the firs two episodesand while it's more cape than mecha he loved the everloving crap out of Tiger & Bunny after I got him to give it a shot.
I actually loved the melancholic 1920's newyork feel of the earlier episodes.
>tfw you will never drive through the calm greenary outside Paradigm City.
I wish in s2
It would had better if it was revealed that it was a real world than some post-modernist-like take on tv production
KMF = Knightmare Frame (Geass)
LFO = Light Finding Operation (dumb name, it's from Eureka Seven)
KLF = Kraft Light Fighter (pic related, they're called Mon-Soonos, also from Eureka Seven)
I didn't dig the Mon-Soono's design at all, didn't look like they belonged on a surfboard. Too blocky and uneven. But I loved the Sutherland and Gloucester.
Oops, that's a Glasgow. This is a Sutherland. I'm sorry /m/, I screwed up my mecha, please find it in your heart to forgive me.
Not only that, but giant skyscrapers lumbering around is a lot more boring than two zippy small-scale fighters.
Beat me to it. Everything about Anemone's design was just fun to look at, for completely non-sexual reasons.
Was pissed when that thing got trashed, the 909 was my favorite LFO on the Gekko... until this thing.
Renton/Anemone mention they look similar and that's about it.
I felt the same. I love the 909 more than the Nirvash but it lasted pretty long all things considered.
GM was better than every suit Zeon produced except for the gelgoog. Just because the Feds have a larger production base doesn't mean they emphasized quantity over quality. After all, the zeeks were still producing outdated Zakus and Doms until the war ended.
Swords are too generic. Boomerang blades are cooler.
Make way for best LFOs.
and best foster parents ;_;
Probably the best part of the series with Ray & Charles, something about episodes 20 - 27ish seemed so well done.
This was one reason I liked code geass' mechs a lot,they could fit in small spaces where mobile suits couldn't. Imagine if gundam did that? It would be so cool to see MS fighting inbetweeen the outer layers of colony walls or through a neighborhood or even inside a mall
you are goat my man,The devilfish was the best lfo hands down.
I just wish it had been introduced earlier although it would've kinda diminished the whole "last ditch effort" feel to it
That's why I'm not a fan of space battles. It's hard to choreograph a cool fight that doesn't rely on missile/laser swarm dodging in an open area with no terrain or objects or anything to give a sense of scale and whatnot. Unless the mecha has some cool trick to it, most space battles more or less feel the same.
They could do a series with lots of fights taking place in the debris rings around the earth or old colonies,I remember destiny had some battles take place among old pieces of satellites and colonies at the beginning.
Aren't Gaia Gears supposed to be smaller than victory units?,looking at some of the images with the cockpit they seem to be less than 14 meters
Did they ever explain why they were so hell-bent on killing each other? They could have easily lived their lives in peace but Charles just had to "settle the score" and we never know what that score was.
>They could have easily lived their lives in peace but Charles just had to "settle the score" and we never know what that score was.
Ghost in the Shell (and Shiro Masamune stuff in general).
Ray hated Eureka because
1. Renton adored her and Ray knew he ran away from the Gekko because of how he was treated.
2. Ray was infertile and could not have offspring but loathed the reality that Eureka could at such a young age when she saw Eureka's children. (Even though Ray only saw Eureka's non-biological children call her mother)
This is a false dichotomy. Fiction can do whatever the fuck it wants and as such often has mechs that are fuckhuge and still very fast. See: Shin Getter Robo
In fact, the slow lumbering type are pretty rare. I always like when they crop up though. Shows like this usually manage to make every single punch have incredible impact
Found your favorite supervillain.
The Gekko is my ship-fu. Reminds me of a klingon bird of prey, but more space-age and streamlined. I forget what scene it was, but I loved it when they used the main guns to pivot the ship into evasive maneuvers. That thing had some moves.
the full metal panic arm slaves in the Light novel version are smaller they were around 8-10 meters on average in the novels and the Behemoth was the monster sized at 20 that needed the Lambda driver just to not collapse on itself from square cube law.
the anime almost doubled their heights to 15-18 and made the Behemoth a 40 meter monster
