>A magician piloting giant magical robot
This statement is necessarily true. Mecha can and has demonstrated mastery of magic on regular basis while magic barely comprehend the concept of mecha; even when they do, it's always under-utilised.
I mean really, golems? Am I supposed to be impressed that you manage to make a pile of loose rock/wood/ice stumble around while holding a humanoid shape? Give me a break.
There's a word that brings back memories. Lots of tulpa discussion went around /a/ for (iirc, my memory is bad) a year or so. [DameDame!], too. Haven't been back to /a/ since 2013-2014 or so though.
Anyway more magic mecha when? Escaflowne was pretty good with it, I'd like to see another a fantasy vein.
Wizard floats into the air and summons giant magical robot around them, so they're sitting in the cockpit when it's done.
And then uses the robot's body and loudspeakers to perform gestures and incantations for bigger-scale magic, which he works into the fighting style.
>fantasy town is under attack by a giant dragon
>guards getting kicked aside
>people running away in terror
>except for this one dude
>jumps into the sky and shouts something
>robot forms out of light and magic metal around him
>punches the dragon out through the city walls
>this will never exist
the thing is that evangelion is by far the best mecha anime ever worldwide.
even in shitty countries like south americans evangelion is more known that any shitty gundam
but you losers never gonna realize that.
thats not changing the fact that you losers got kicked from /a/ and even in this place if somebody talks about other mecha anime other than gundam you act like
> but muh space
> diz space is for gundam
> muh gundam
keep bitching about gundam while evangelion is consider by many anime magazines and sites like one of the best anime of the history .. not only on mecha gender
and please. try to watch other mecha series. theres a lot more than gundam
try knights of sidonia on netflix for example :3 bye bye
I'm not even a Gundamfaggot and I agree they get territorial, but
>lecturing anyone about "other shows exist"
at least recognise how completely derivative Eva is. All your precious symbolism is stuff Anno threw into Ultraman because he thought it looked cool.
Evangelion-style setup with reality-defying eldritch Dragons attacking some castle town, and only the magical Giant Knight Sentinels, powered by the souls of executed criminals, stand in their way. I've wanted something like this for forever.
MC is MUSCLE WIZARD, casting spells with martial arts like motions
hot blooded as fuck, probably has swooshy nagai sideburns
rival character uses a lance, casts spells by drawing runes in the air with either or both ends
pretends to be more level-headed but still gets pretty fired up in a serious fight
there's a few other mecha wizards as well, probably with like a bow and an axe and shit
they travel the world, sometimes separately, sometimes together, fighting for justice and seeking glory, sometimes against each other
Unfortunately, magicians summoning giant magical robots is not the answer against transformers.
>tfw playing a summoner in Pathfinder
>tfw you make your eidolon Obari as fuck
Bonus points for being a synthesist so you can "pilot" it.
