Welcome back to the 30 Day Anime Challenge on the Alfredeo blog! This is where I discuss the different topics from the list above and share my hopefully interesting thoughts about them! This challenge has been very fun so I suggest you should read up on the others!
Also, this post is opinion based. It hasn’t been a problem so far into this challenge but, if you are going to bash on my choice on the individual topics, I suggest you shouldn’t. Instead, you should comment down below your choice and I would be glad to read up about it.
Mecha anime shows are definitely popular. There are some great ones like Code Geass, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Mazinger Z, and even all the Gundam based shows made by Sunrise.
Pretty much all mecha shows contain fighting so what I’m going by to pick my favorite mecha shows are how they act/fight in the show, how cool they look and how memorable it was watching the anime.
So with that, my favorite mecha anime is…
Yep, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (2007), the action adventure comedy made by Gainax, who also created great mecha shows like Neon Genesis Evangelion and FLCL.
This show was in fact my very first anime I ever watched so if you want to see my thoughts on this show as a whole, please check out day 1 of this anime challenge to read up on it!
So, why is this my favorite mecha anime of all time?
As I said, how these mechas fight and act is fucking awesome and really make this show pop out a lot.
From when Simon first found Lagann, and how that robot evolves overtime to become basically, a freaking god, is just awesome to experience.
Not only Simon’s mecha but everyone else’s robot are pretty cool too. For example, Kittan’s mecha, King Kittan, a small yet fast mecha for battle and Dai-Gunzan, basically a fucking battleship on two legs.
The mecha’s abilities can look like it’s a bit too much but when you see it, you can be in awe. The most famous weapon/abilities is Gurren Lagann’s drill. While it can obviously be used as a weapon, it is also used to combine with other mechas to create an even bigger robot to destroy their enemies.
Honestly, I can’t really explain how great this mecha based anime is in a text post so you have to watch this on your own. This is genuinely a great experience to watch if you’re into some really good looking fighting with big ass robots.
Thanks for reading today’s topic! What’s your favorite mecha anime? Comment it down below!
Tomorrow will be a special post for this challenge so keep your eyes peeled for day 12 with my saddest anime scene!
