/o/ first timer here. What is mecha in /m/'s words?
>inb4 google
I am an amateur artist and wish i could draw things like this. I dont really watch anime like a regular 4chin memer, but if it means anything I always loved the way gundam wing looked.
>>
most of the time? a bipedal tank, also magical shit like power rangers
>>
Something in a shape that's at least vaguely humanoid with something at least vaguely resembling metal covering at least a part of it or two.

And also men in spandex and silly helmets, giant monsters, girls with any kind of weaponry whatsoever and any type of vehicle, especially tanks
>>
Lurk a little. Every now and then /m/ has a favorite mecha thread. They are worth checking out.
>>

>What is mecha in /m/'s words?

Something that contains mechanical things as a regular topic. Usually robots, but in a pinch sci-fi battleships work too.

>>13477780
>at least vaguely humanoid

Or animallike, like Zoids. (though you could argue the Kongs are hominid enough)
>>
>>13477746
>What is mecha in /m/'s words?

To be precise, "mecha" is the Japanese word for "machinery." (Not "machine"; that's "kikai.")

However... the definition of "mecha" in English is somewhat elusive. Personally, I've settled on the definition of mecha as "limbed machines".

In terms of 4chan, though, /m/ is "sci-fi technology."

Anything heavily mechanical or robotic, with an emphasis on high tech stuff. This includes classical mechs (your Gundams, battlemechs, AT-ATs, ED-209), powered armour of any stripe, star-, air-, land-, and regular ships, androids and gynoids and adorable spider bots that want to eat your civilization, and tanks and tank-like substances. The ones that actually exist are usually better served to be discussed elsewhere, like /k/ or /o/, unless they're awesome. /m/ loved Curiosity, for instance.

Those tend to be surprisingly good threads.

>>13477746

The way I see it, mecha is anime in which a one of the major plot devices is machine technology used to tell the story. Usually giant robots and power suits, but not limited to them.
>>
Well thanks to riderfags mecha on /m/ is every fucking thing that's mechanical. Your car, your washing machine, even your wristwatch is a fucking mecha.

What mecha actually is? Big robots in Japanese media.
>>
>>13484840
We had the occasional washing machine thread well before toku was prevalent. It was a joke, but it was there.

We also had a thread about hinges.
