Why is there very little of it made and how do we fix it? You would think with the internet everyone would know of Gundam by now and would want to see more like it. Pacific Rim is awesome and I am looking forward to the sequel and Chappie but there is so little else out there. Will we see a renaissance of the mecha genre in the next decade or so? Why is it taking so long?
OP is being a faggot.
Storytime, I guess.

You mean that old cartoon from the sixties with naked children in it? Sorry, OP, normal people don't want to fuck little kids.
Not a huge fan of the western mech a genre, but there are some good nostalgia gems out there. Battletech, Amored Core, Aliens, Terminator, ect.
I think the only way Hollywood has a chance with the mech a box office is have high-budget FX and mindless action. If it keeps theater audiences awake and makes a profit, that's good enough.
