This was the one question I was the most nervous about, mainly because I don’t really like mech animes. I don’t mind robots or androids, but mechs and watching them fight never really appealed to me. I have seen a few animes that fit this description though, but they’re few and far between and I’m trying to remember which ones would fit here.
I do feel like I should get over my judgment of mechs and just embrace it. I use to hate sports animes, but Haikyuu! changed that so I’m thinking that I just need a good series/movie to push me into this genre. There are a few that I want to watch, but I just need to get over the fact that they have mechs in them.
It’s hard though, it’s really hard.
If you have any recommendations of great mech animes for someone who doesn’t like mechs, then please let me know. It would make answering this question all that much more easier.
For now, I’ll have to go with Vision of Escaflowne. I watched this a long time ago, back when I only watched dubbed animes that were on TV. I just checked on wiki and it aired on YTV from 2000-2001, so I watched this almost 15 years ago. Wow that makes me feel old.
Seeing as it was that long ago when I watched it, I don’t really remember much about the show. It was a romance and focused on that more than the fantasy aspects, but I do remember liking this for the most part. The plot was okay, the characters were fine and I really enjoyed the villains here. The only thing that annoyed me was the love triangle. I guess even as a young’un I never liked love triangles or saw the need for them.
Unfortunately though, nothing else really comes to mind about this. But it is a mech anime and I do know that I liked this, so that answers this question.
If you guys know of any other mech animes that are good though, let me know and I’ll try to watch them.
