ZDY : Mecha is (not) dying

darkreigncometh : Give me mecha anyday!

Matt Britton : If Gundam Origin leads to a full-blown OG Gundam reboot, we could see the genre regain some of its popularity once again. Imagine the very first Gundam, but completely reanimated and dubbed. I would absolutely watch that.

minecraft lets plays egg toys suprise eggs mega gummy bear : What bout code geass movies and season 3

Bressan Franco : hopefully idol anime won't last 60 years, i wouldn't be able to stand that trash for that long

Titus : You can't make hentai out of Giant Robots ... Unless you're in to that stuff too....

zipzip070 : 20:47 "Considering its instrumentality" -- Video shows Gendo, *that* song in the background. Nice touch

Matheus Sousa : I am a Darling in the franxx fanboy fight me

Crying Lemons : Darling in the franxx is awsome, I believe this is the catylist we were waiting for

minecraft lets plays egg toys suprise eggs mega gummy bear : Wow 8 seconds about code geass Disappointed

Nkanyiso Innocent Khwane : Brilliant Documentary

mewofforcena : 'Idols killed mecha anime'? BAHAHA-no. Idols killed anime. Ever been to akihabara recently? Jesus breakdancing christ, it's everywhere.

Miguel Robles : Gundam thunderbolt has been one of the best pieces of anime I've seen in a while

Gary Tee : "Two mecha anime in for the last hurrah in the 2000s" (Shows 00 and Gurren Lagann) (Talks about GL and Code Geass) Me: Wait what? I know Code Geass is amazing as hell, but where's the 00 description? But still, amazing video!


Hector Hernandez : Giant Robots are F***ing Awesome !

Manrisa Kirisame : Chicks dig Giant Robots.

Cyril Gigee : The music in this video is great.

A Really Rad Boy : Darling in the FranXX will save mecha prolly

Snowbrawler : You almost got yourself a solid documentary series brewing here, just start recording the audio in a closet full of clothes and coats, slow down slightly and add 10min of content.

Minty Bliss : I think the mecha genre has kind of been over taken by more futuristic/dystopian genres. In the past, big machines were the biggest and coolest things out there, partially due to the advancements that had recently occurred regarding this technology. Now, technology involving easy, immediate results (ie telecommunication, etc.) is definitely more popular, as that’s what our technology has started to do.

Abel Esperanz : Gundam Seed was the entry for me NTR cucking was really traumatizing for a 12 yr old child :^V

Otakusatsu : オタクサツ : I was loving this with the history and trope points, and reference given... until the obvious nostalgia-blinded 2000s section, and the "now I'm older" "things were better when I was younger than they are now" take on the current status of the genre.

Santelmo Buenaventura : Gundam Thunderbolt is amazing! Such a very unique story line and concept. Check it out, it is a hidden gem!

Spanky32 : My love started with tekkaman blade and patlabor

The Ace Of Spades : Ahhhhh yes... The countless hours and money I spent on building Gundam figures incorrectly

Loren Smith : The Giant Robots were wiped out by a Flood of Idols.

Rayzarke : 6:47 “Char Aznable says let the purge begin !”

j s : Mecha shows i've watched and recommend, MS Gundam: iron blooded orphans (2seasons); gundam seed; gundam seed destiny; 08th MS team; aldnoah zero (2seasons), gundam 00 (2seasons); break blade; Gundam thunderbolt.

AlucardGaming : A coincidence that it showed Macross, Southern Cross and then MOSPEADA? I think not! P.S. I love Robotech.

Vicente Ortega Rubilar : Maybe we need to make a show of giant robots that look and act like lolis and the main argument would it be about how they live their normal lives fighting monsters and eating cute food in the mall. Maybe one could have a crush with her pilot. Just ideas.

Ibnziyad Tariq : damn i cringe anytime i hear the word "Evangelion".

Mochikou : Voltes V. That's all I'm going to say.

shrk128 : tengen toppa guren lagaan was amazing. then the ending happened. then i hated it for cukcing me.

Neon Reaper : I guess giant robots are my waifus now :/

Daitomodachi : To this day, Gurren Lagann and Code Geass are two of my favorite animes of all time, even though I'm not really a fan of the mecha genre. As for how mechas are to survive, they going to have to adapt to the changing landscape as well. Instead of a focus on war, they should put an emphasis smaller scale conflicts on social issues and the impact of the internet on today's culture (even though I think some do)... Oh and more waifus. Can't forget about the waifus.

Sleeping forest of Gaia : i like goddanner , star dance and voltron :D

Earthling Rob : Chicks dig giant robots.

Kioku : Guess what guys I liked gundam seed


LemonOVA : Iron Man 2 is my favorite Mech Anime

Tad Ghostal : well I'm going to watch some more full metal panic now


Chocolate Man : Gundam thunderbolt and iron blooded orphans and and origins most slept on mecha anime this decade. Gundam is killing it and are being slept on!

Dimitrisaurus : Attack on Titan is actually a mecha anime where humans pilot giant meat robots. So you could say that mecha anime are as popular as ever.

The Goat : Pacific Rim is still the best live action anime adaptation as far as I'm concerned.

xxprogamerxx XD : I just started watching gundam so i am a new gundam fan lol

Gamzee Ampora : god dammit as if we needed another reason to detest idols

serene syder : This should be called the rise and fall and rise again because trigger i believe brought the mecha anime back to the top

Kal El : Mecha will live forever only because of the old golden age. the classics never die
