Yet Another Post about SaiMecha…
…this time from me, maykoro aka azn86jedi- the ever nonpresent co-author collaborative author on Mechapot.
And here’s my first nomination…due to be CRUSHED horrendously by every other much more popular Mecha goodness out there…
I PRESENT TO YOU…
Fafner Mark Sein– 蒼穹の ファフナー Dead Aggressor (also 蒼穹の ファフナー Dead Aggressor- Heaven and Earth)
Essentially the first mecha anime I ever watched, Fafner for me was essentially the mother of all mecha anime I began watching subsequently (being new to anime, I had not yet realised the existence of GUNDAM). While mshaydown (and others) will, and still claim that Fafner had heavy yaoi overtones, I never really took notice of it and just concentrated on the mecha action and story. Mark Sein was piloted by protagonist Makabe Kazuki in the original TV anime serial and again in the 2010 film Heaven and Earth. Retrospectively, the Mark Sein is probably akin to one of the typical souped up-uberpowered main chara mechs that we now so often see. *cue Strike Freedom’s unwanted crashing into the scene…*
ARX-7 Arbalest- Full Metal Panic!
Now who wouldn’t like a mech / Arm Slave with a witty, smart ass AI? The Arbalest at the hands of Sagara Sousuke provided some comedic relief in tense situations in FMP. Probably the most agile mech I’ve ever seen that doesn’t actually have any real flight capabilities, the Arbalest would rank as one my best, and favourite ground fighting mechs.
LET THE NOMINATIONS MADE BY ME BE CRUSHED BY THE LOVE OF ALL OTHER MECHA!
Maykoro signing out. *Disappears yet again*
