Apart from Simoun, Skygirls and Souko no Strain; Is there any other mecha anime that has a female main protagonist?
It can have guys in it too, but just a female lead.
Code Geass (sort of?)
Definitley a secondary character.
Gundam has FABULOUS leads if thats close enough...
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Seirei no Moribito
at least some parts of Patlabor
Tokyo Private Police
Ghost in the Shell
Balsa was totally the main character. Anyone who disagrees is a homosexual.
And what's with the unabashedly cruel Simoun spoilers constantly? Pick another image, damn
Oh, mecha, right. Disregard that, I suck cocks.
Simoun is considered mecha now?
Anything by Miyazaki.
If you consider the Simoun aircraft mecha, you might consider the Childs in My HiME mecha. Main character is a girl.
I asked /m/ and they said lesbocopters are mecha.
I always thought that was an odd term to use too. Connotes giant robots but I guess it extends to any weird military machinery
Full Metal Panic, main character is Sagara-chan
Well, if /m/ agreed
