    I've stopped watching mecha anime almost completely after Aldnoah.Zero and Cross Ange ended, and I didn't try to find another newer mecha anime to watch again since them. Almost if not all mecha anime seem to be originally make (I mean make as an original animation not an adaptation from other media) which in the past decade we all have seen the problem with them as they have not enough time to elaborate the story to be completely good, at best we can only get trainwreck after trainwreck in the later half of their storytelling. Also, the flood of content from Isekai genre an any other thing that come from web novel and light novel format have render most original project from any anime studio on hiatus and even if they can push them out they're suboptimal because of the lack of time I've mentioned. So, I lost hope for any Anime-original show to be good, then I stopped watching this kind of show. I don't think there is a way to save this genre. Because it's very difficult to explicate have your mech look like or working in novel format. It's can do well in manga format but it's difficult to get anime adaptation after that because mecha is not in mainstream anymore and younger generation seem to not interesting in giant robot kind of setting anymore, at least not enough to popularize them once again..

    I only got into anime in the last three years or so, and I feel this, I've heard so much hype and love for the Mecha series, and I've never truly loved the medium, I've seen Aldenoah zero, and loved it, until they bombed in the end, and it turned out that whole lovely story I was enthralled in was merely a premise for a greater longer running show, but instead of making it flow it just seemed like it just shattered the world and the joy I felt for it died in that final episode. Mecha is dying, and all of you who say otherwise down here clearly haven't had the experience he is describing in this episode, take it from a new fan, its dying.

Plot line was solid too since it came off a manga Aldnoah Zero's plot twist defo made shit go sideways and it really was a WTF moment but it was still enjoyable since everythin panned out in the end LOLZ.

    Mecha incarnates the spirit of an era that is over. The promise of robots and science giving us a bright future was part of the dominant sentiment in the 70's and 80's, but it no longer is. Sure, there are always people out there to enjoy giant robots. But they clearly aren't mainstream as they used to be. And i think it is simply impossible to revert that in the coming years, especially considering the increasing social problems that keep happening despite robots and AIs becoming better.

    To be fair, you don't have to be a Gundam fan to watch Build Fighters. Sure, you might be confused (*looks at SEED Destiny and sweats nervously*), but that's when you explore more and enjoy a series. I got into the franchise with Endless Waltz downloaded on a potato computer that miraculously works to this day and the Dynasty Warriors Gundam games, but I haven't bothered to watch barely anything from the UC timeline apart from Unicorn, and I know how the plot pretty much went. As a fan of Gundam (SEED for me, even though there are flaws to it), I know practically enough to get around in a Discord servers with guys that are more experienced and seasoned than me. Watching 0079 is ideal, but that doesn't mean it's the only way to get into Gundam. So as shitty as this sounds, take it from a CE fanboy and just start with anything, even Build Fighters if that's the only thing you can watch nowadays.

    Dunno about you, but I stopped caring for mecha once I realized how stupid and unrealistic giant humanoid robots are. Now, to be clear, humanoid robot is fine, just not giant. Or should I say I do still love power armor, that is VERY realistic and actually being developed. Or hell, even things akin to terminator, because the additional benefit of infiltration is useful. What I do have a problem with, on this front, is humanoid robot where the humanoid appearance serves no purpose--neither infiltration nor even eroticisms. Stepping stone to those end goal are fine, which is what many designs in the real world are going for, but blocky humanoid robot for the sake of blocky humanoid robot... why? Human is NOT the most efficient form... which leads to... Giant robot is fine, just not humanoid. Specifically crawler gun platforms are perfectly logical for complex terrain warfare. But bipedal, in its very nature, is unstable and therefore not optimal. The only reason we, as humans, benefit from bipedal is because it frees our hand to use tools. But robot don't need that, because they can just have more appendages. For all intend and purposes, quad or hex "leg" with wheel or thread on the bottom for accelerated flat terrain movement should be the go to design of any complex and large machinery. (Yes, this would, in fact, describe a number of mobile armor, I like those much more than mobile suit) Giant robot looking thing that is not actually a robot is also fine, for example, Evas. Gurren Lagann and Darling are kind of borderline because those aren't purely robot robots. They are adaptation tech of robot like things majig, still don't entirely like them though. Thing here is that the otherwise useless humanoid have a reason, they are not designed that way, they just have to be that way. In short, if you know anything about physics and engineering, you will find that giant humanoid robot, especially those that transform, are god damn stupid.

    I´m not a life long Gundam fan, as a matter of fact, I haven't watched the "original" timeline series, but I have watched 00, Tekketsu no Orphans, and Seed/Destiny. All of those are self-contained stories and very good by themselves because they still are able to communicate the main message of Gundam: basically, war sucks and there is no evil and good side.

    Great video. I grew up in the 80s with the super robots, and I've seen almost all of them as a child and loved them, well most of them, especially Mazinger, Voltes V, Voltron, Daltanius, Daitarn, Daimos, Albegas, Robotech, Godam, Yattaman and countless others (as I'm re-discovering the robot's designs again)... But then I've been seeing them less an less on TV, mostly endless re-runs of old shows, but nothing new and I wasn't a big fan of mobile suits anime at the time. Then in the mid 90-s I fell in love with mecha anime again with Evangelion, Gundam Wing, Full Metal Panic, Fafner... later I started accepting full CGI mecha animes like Vandread, Aquarion. I found them to be good. But it was hard to make a good mecha show with CGI mechs without having them feel out of place. The last good Mecha show I watched I think it was Gurren Lagann. Interestingly enough I could never get into Code Geass. But I'll try again some day. I've seen some reboot series of the old super robots, and I love them, such as the Mazinger & I'll also count Mazinkaiser, Getter, Gaiking and Dancouga Nova (this I still have to watch the last 2), and I think that's it. I also discovered some a bit more modern super robots series that I missed, and I plan to watch, such as Gravion, Godannar, Tetsujin 28 FX (I like it but hard to find any episodes) and maybe Gaogaigar, I would love to see more modern super robots anime, but it seems the modern ones are full of little kids as pilots and way too much shool-filler stuff. Also looking forward for these (hopefully soon to be released) 3D series Voltes V Legacy ... and a very nice 3D Goldrake movie is coming out too

  100. Hehe hehe

    Hehe hehe


    I think the problem is that mecha is such a classic. The thing is that the new stuff will probably not top the classics in the eyes of viewers. All the new mecha are just simply titled oh that nge clone. It needs something new but it's not an easy feat. You could branch off of existing franchise but stuff like gundum are just so large it puts off new viewers trying to get in. But I have hope there is a code geass sequel but it's set in an alternative universe, his could either be a huge hit or a complete fail if it pales in comparison to the original.
