If you recall, what was your first Mecha-related anime to see?

Do you recall what you thought of the Mechs the first time you saw them?

(As for mysef, I don't recall if it was Mazinger, Maccross/Robotech, or Voltron that I came upon first, but I thought the idea of pilots controlling giant robots was cool as heck -- which is what I'd imagine the developers were hoping for -- and I've loved the idea ever since.)

.......

As a follow-up, if you're a big Mech fan, what are your Top-5 favorite Mechs?

Nice to see other mech geeks out there 8p

i remember that Voltron was my 1st mech show, but I only go to see it every now and then.
The first one I got really serious was undoubtedly Gundam Wing.

i was enraptured by the speed and power of the Gundams. I was always partial to the Wing models and Heero as well. His demeanour represents the mindset I've always tried to attain, but have never come close. Anyway, I was practically raised on Star Wars and Star Trek so this was a cool new angle on the sci-fi battle (whether on Earth or in space)

On your side note, my top 5 models

Wing Zero Custom - all the Wing models but Custom is my favourite - (I was pissed when it blew up...I saw it unful its wings and went "mine! mine! MINE!"

An extremely close second (and only because Zero has the white wings) is the Freedom from Gundam SeeD/Destiny

Tallgeese III

Justice - not as much firepower as Freedom, but still extremely cool, especially when Athuran puts the beam sabres together

Deathscythe Custom or Nataku (EW Custom) (one of these would be higher on the list, but
my battle style calls for a good variety of short and mid-long range weapons, a criteria all the other suits fit...so...umm, yeah, I still love em, but I don't like being TOO dependant on one weapon system, like the Deathscythe)

Great thread dude, really enjoyed it

My first real mecha anime was Patlabor and I loved Alphonse when I saw him the first time!
The Ingram are so stylish, so imponent! I still shiver when I think on him.
My top five:
1 Wing Zero Gundam Custom
2 Ingram av-98
3 Sword Impulse Gundam
4 Type J9 Griffon
5 Rayearth Mashin
May I list more? may I list more? OX I love mecha!
There's Epyon and Savior, Justice, Freedom, Peacemaker, Tallgeese... *sighs* I'm sorry :)

Quote by DrakenImmortali remember that Voltron was my 1st mech show, but I only go to see it every now and then. The first one I got really serious was undoubtedly Gundam Wing.

I hate to admit it, but somehow I missed 'Gundam' completely growing up. I'd probably consider myself "old school" in that I was around pretty darn early when anime was hitting the U.S. but somehow this one I've only caught an episode or two of, unfortunately.

That said, I've long resolved to change that, and the Gundams are on my list, predominantly, of "To Get's."

Any one Gundam series that you'd reccommend over another?

Feel free to expound on why that is...heh.

Sure!

Not a problem. I actually thought that it might be asking too much for folks to list more than [5].

Apparently not!

Quote by JotaroOnly one ?

Nah, the original question was simply what was your first Mecha-related anime?

Other than that I was interested in a Top-5 favorite Mechs as a follow-up, if you had any interest in answering. Feel free to do so.

Quote: Eva-02 in NGE.

I thought the limitation to the Eva's "battery" power (at least initially) was an interesting call. And Eva-02 is a great Mech, agreed.

Thanks for chiming in.

First mecha...? Evangelion. My roommate insisted we rent it. I...only watched so she wouldn't...gesture at me. Usually I can't stand the stuff. Escaflowne and Last Exile are very very notable exceptions. The mecha in Last Exile is so pretty.

My first mecha series was Voltron! It was awesome. I thought how each lion slept in their own element was pretty cool. I still have all five lions and the Castle is somewhere in my house.

My favorite mecha right now is Deathscythe Hell(not custom).

my fav mecha is actually the Freedom, because those wings make it look cool... but the best manga mecha i've seen so far is Su's Mechatama-05 (u know...the one in Love Hina volume 13) that was really funny....lolz^_^'
