Tekkaman Blade (Japanese) or Teknoman (u.s version). Just bought myself Collection One for Christmas. That’s the reboot version, the original is from 1975, which i’ve never seen.

I also remember renting this on VHS way back – Big Wars

Big wars looks interesting, teknoman looks a lot like robotech XD

Any Gundam.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Revolution.
Bubblegum Crisis.
Escaflowne.
Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Full Metal Panic!
Eureka Seven.

I haven’t watched all of these, but they all have mecha in them at least, and I’ve heard at least decent reviews of them (Bubblegum Crisis is just battlesuits I think).

Dude, try Rideback, you might like it. : )

Can’t I interest you with a great anime movie without androids? Wings of Honnemise is great.

Oh mannn I cant believe no one mentioned Big O. Its fuckin Batman with Gundams, whats not to like? lol

Not really about robots but it has a cool robot in the cast. If you havent seen it already watch FLCL. Its only 6 episodes and its totally random but completely awesome at the same time. I just rewatched the series last night

@uberbatman Ok that looks pretty badass XD

El_Cadejo's avatar

It is :) I used to watch it all the time on adult swim back in the day. They still air it sometimes on saturday at like 2am lol

Holy crap I actually found a copy of big wars online XD downloading it to check it out, but man it’s uncommon.

Also almost done downloading rideback, I would have prefered english dub instead of subtitles but at least they aren’t super tiny and yellow like a lot are.

XOIIO's avatar

Ok, I FUCKING WANT a rideback XD Thats freaking badass. I wish there was a racing game with them or something. Thats uber cool XD

mazingerz88's avatar

Yeah, maybe Honda could manufacture them! : )

Something interesting I came across looking at others is black lagoon, looks like a neat show nonetheless.

@filmfann Yes, metropolis is one I forgot, been ha ving trouble finding a good uality version online, that was a great one. the anime

XOIIO's avatar

Man, too bad there isn’t a reboot or second season of rideback, those grimoirs are pretty awesome XD

mazingerz88's avatar

No second season? I thought there was.

XOIIO's avatar

@mazingerz88 Nope :( only 12 episodes.

mazingerz88's avatar

Oh shoot. I’m watching the first season and almost finished. Darn it.

XOIIO's avatar

@mazingerz88 yeah :(

Oh yeah, for anyone wondering Black Lagoon is freaking awesome XD

El_Cadejo's avatar

Dont you just fucking hate when you find a new show and really really get into it only to find out it was cancelled prematurely. It seems like it always happens to the really awesome shows too :(

XOIIO's avatar

Yeah I know:( there are some others that only had one season:(
