What will it take for an actually good mars mecha anime
>>
>>13829203
Just play ZoE2 or something

>>13829203
Why does there need to be a good Mars mecha anime? What's so significant about Mars in this context?
>>
>>13829216
Why do Mars and Jupiter get so much attention?
When's the last time there was a series about Mercury, Venus, or Saturn?
>>
>>13829221

I blame Percival Lowell, the "canals on Mars," guy. He's been cited as an influence for both John Carter of Mars and War of the Worlds, which are probably the most influential Mars stories in western culture and science fiction as a whole. There aren't any Venus, Mercury, or Saturn stories of similar stature. There's even a Venus story by the same guy who wrote John Carter, and nobody cares about it.

Add to that the fact that since the Space Race we've known that Venus and Mercury are basically deathzones where no life can ever live, ever, and most machines will die too. Mars is the least inhospitable non-Earth planet in the solar system, which is what makes it an attractive location for science fiction stories. It's the only place besides Earth that humans have even the slightest chance of living on in the foreseeable future.

All of that said, in any story where technology is advanced enough for giant robots Mars is going to be pretty indistinguishable from any other planet. If we were talking Burroughs Mars then I'd be all over it, but nothing about Burroughs Mars is actually tied to Mars as a physical location.

Oh, but hey, Nadesico has some stuff on Mars, right? Do we not like Nadesico anymore, or is it not Mars enough?

Mars is basically a journey checkpoint since by the time the series started, the Jovians have pretty much demolished the place as a functional center of society.

iirc You have a group of refugees and the Jovian forces later on and that's about it, probably.

It does appear a few times in the show and in the movie, I think, but it's pretty much just a region that things happen it.

The Mars Daybreak takes place on Mars too, but, like you said, it's pretty much indistinguishable from "Earth has been flooded".

The main character should look like Matt Damon

godmars is a great anime

Shinseikiden is already pretty much a page-for-page adaptation of the manga, with an added backstory and epilogue. Not sure why people are always complaining about it.

It's the source material that's not-that-good, not the show. It needs to stop being put on a pedestal just because it's old.

Maybe because neither of the groups that worked on it has made it to the end so far (although none of Hokuto no Gun's anime projects move very fast anyway).

That said, fun fact: Keisuke Fujikawa was the head writer for both this and >>13829767.

Venus wars was cool.

Not true, people speculated for a long time that Venus was a lush jungle planet where it rained non-stop. Also, colonizing venus would probably be easier than colonizing mars according to NASA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ5KV3rzuag

No giant robots, but this is pretty cool if you're in the mood for some cyberpunk.

Remove the bad and replace it with the good.

We already have one.

Pretty sure for a show to be a Mars show they'd have to not be stuck inside a spaceship heading towards earth most of the series.

Pretty much, but it's still a pretty good series if you want something different.

Too bad webm related was probably the best fight scene and a lot of it is stock footage. The whole underwater combat thing was a really missed opportunity.

Mars is the only other planet in the Solar System we could reasonably inhabit, without using the cloud habitat meme.

It's the big guy.

It has perfectly understandable crabsticks for the last few episodes.

Is this better or worse than Master of Martial Hearts.

By what measure?
I can literally only think of one quality with any redeeming value.
