One thing I forgot to mention that I think could be a major part of what's making it hard for me to like the show... I'm finding I really don't like Celestial Being's agenda all that much - I find myself agreeing with the people in the show who are criticising them. I guess it's pretty hard to like ...

It gets better my similar named brethren. If you've seen up to 6, then keep watching. With the appearance of Ali (the guy in the blue enact), Setsuna gets some good characterization. There's a lot of build up in the first half of the series, with some decent battles and episodes, but stick with it,...

I mentioned the Women of Mecha topic (and the "best and worst women in Gundam" one) on the girl-wonder.org forums, and one of the people who replied mentioned that they were disappointed that the discussion didn't really seem to have much depth to it. Would it be possible to have a more in-depth dis...

The Evil Overlord List: Mecha Addendum

Okay, just one of the things I had lying around on my computer and thought people might find interesting... If I Am Ever A Teenaged Mecha Pilot... by the Mekton Zeta Mailing List 1. I will insist that a qualified psychiatrist be among the base staff. 2. If my father abandoned me several years ago, I...

Just that I've defended Seed elsewhere and copped some flak for it.

Okay, just watched the first two episodes, and they're not all that bad after all. Maybe I just wasn't in a good mood the first time I saw it or something. As for the character designs... well, I'm one of those freaks who actually liked Seed (not Destiny, though), so it's not too much of an issue fo...

Well, I just found out that my library has copies of the DVDs, so there goes the "I'm not sure it's worth spending money on the boxset" excuse. Guess I'll check it out.

I seem to remember that the phrase "Eva ripoff" popping up a lot while watching that first episode (can't remember if it was me thinking it or other people saying it). How strong are the similarities to Evangelion in actual fact?

Fafner - worth looking at?

Okay, I remember that Melbourne Anime Society screened the first episode of Fafner soon after it came out, and that I HATED it and the episode killed any interest I had in the series. But given the discussion on the Gundamn! podcast, I'm starting to think maybe it might be worth taking a look at. An...

Going off the women and mecha topic... I'll try not to rant too much here. I really don't get the Gundam 00 lovefest. I've seen six episodes so far, and I felt that the show was just incredibly boring and a chore to watch. My biggest problem is the characters - I feel absolutely nothing for any of t...

Another in the "Show with a mecha in it" category: The Third: Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo . I really enjoyed that one. EDIT: Oh, and another honorable mention to the Super Robot Wars series... Excellen particularly stands out for me. And in fact, it's arguable that Kusuha is the main character of the Alpha...

Following on from the Women in Mecha Anime discussion in the last podcast, how about a Top 10 Female Characters, either for Gundam or mecha anime in general?

A couple of other shows...

A couple of other mecha shows with female leads that nobody's mentioned yet... I thought somebody would have brought up Southern Cross by now... yeah, it's not exactly a great show, but it's fairly well known (at least as the middle chapter of Robotech). Also, does Sky Girls count as a mecha show? I...
