>all of those emo faggots after EVA

t-thank you for saving the anime industry

Wasn't Amuro the one that cried after he killed Lalah and was an emotional wreck for like seven years until the Gryps Conflict?
>>
>>101396341
it's like you don't even watch mecha and just posting image made by another person who doesn't watch mecha
>>
>Amuro
>Not Shinji where the world is actually worth fighting for

What.
>>
>>101396341
>Mecha, Sci-Fi, Action, Romance, Drama

All these are in my filter, any series is automatically dropped if any of these is present.

Also Eva by itself is nothing, it's the cancerous fanbase that pisses me off. Right now we are seeing the KlaK fanbase shit up /a/ in the same manner.
>>
>>101397519
So you watch SoL? Wow sucks to be you that you can't enjoy things.

>>101396341
Funny cause two of the pictures on the left (Kouji and Ryouma) are both from shows that occured long after Eva (though I do realize their source material is much older)
>>
>>101397519

So genre discussion instead falling for the poor troll image then.

I like all genres really, except harem which I've grown tired of. Mecha, SoL/Iyashikei, Sci-Fi and Mahou Shoujo are my favourite.

I think watching mecha or adventure series is a bigger escape than another high school setting

I haven't finished the first Gundam yet, but Amuro is just as pathetic as Shinji so far about 30 episodes in.

Blame Tomino. Thanks to him every single real robot show is loaded with anti war propaganda.

>>101397879
If you want an MC that has all of that, check out Uso Ewin from Victory Gundam.

Just because one version of it wasn't mecha, does that mean the whole thing isn't mecha?

And arguably, any mecha series could be done without mecha. It'd just be supersoldiers or some shite.

I liked Kamille. There were times where he went full bonkers when he tackled Sarah and sucker punched her. Plus when he impaled Scirocco with his Waverider.

>>101398006
Wait till you get to Zeta Gundam if you're still watching 0079. Amuro is at his worst there because he's more reclusive and scared to go into space after killing an enemy Newtype he killed during the One Year War. Plus he had Federation agents spying on him because the Earth Federation's fear of Newtypes.

I didn't say it wasn't mecha, it's just that they really weren't needed in the story. It's like they put them there to possibly boost sales and have something to animate to increase the overall quality.

The only genre I tend to avoid is yaoi and shoujo romance

mostly because of the artwork and the cliches

>>
>>101398750
Sci-Fi is a subtle cover for all sorts of bullshit. The real sci-fi I like is more scientific. About planets, space exploration, standard model, and other stories based on theoretical physics.

Japan can't into sci-fi for shit.

>Japan can't into sci-fi for shit.
which is arguably a good thing, since shows like macross, ideon, evangelion and so on that only use sci-fi very superficially tend to be more entertaining than "real" sci-fi
>>
Evangelion didn't save shit. It's babys first "deep" anime despite being as shallow as a puddle so it gets an exaggerated amount of praise for that.
>>
Anime is best when it's as far away from reality as possible

fantasy > sci-fi > high school
>>
>>101399201
Because I like to laugh and feel lighthearted whenever I can. Comedy and SoL make me feel comfortable.
>>
>>101399335
I understand comedy but SoLs are as boring and bland as IRL

real escapism is being a legendary hero exploring a fantasy land while fucking all the girls and monster girls therein
>>
>>101399568
That's more wish fulfillment than escapism
>>
>>101399325
>Anime is best when it's as far away from reality as possible
Dude, how good an anime is does not depend on it's location.

I mean, take SnK, thats pure fantasy, but I'd choose DRRR over it any day, witch is a cross between the two.
>>
>>101399629
same damn thing
>>
>>101399644
surely there are stand-outs but on average that is the case

besides DRRR is not that very close to reality anyhow
>>
>>101399749
Nah, in wish fulfillment you are self inserting, if the guy watches SoL for relaxation it's a different thing.
>>
>>101399911
They are both escapism

WF is a better form of it because it actually makes sense.

>The manga didn't have robots, it kinda proofs robots weren't needed

Manga isn't the original version and it's actually worse off for lacking the robots. Your argument is backwards.
>>
>>101398666

That's another questionable argument since like the other guy said most robot shows don't strictly NEED robots either. You can do Gundam with tanks or planes, even more so with Macross and Votoms, etc. Patlabor as well. The Super Robot stuff could be done as Toku or Sentai, etc.

Whatever the adaptation, the answer is (Ghost in the Shell aside) always "Of course."

The manga doesn't have the anime original characters like the Moon Narutards, or the anime original ending.

Hey OP, Kouji Kabuto the king of badassery and manlyness is a relatevily modern interpretation born from nostalgia. If we go to the original source, the Nagai manga, Kouji was a moeblob and he cried very often but not manly tears but actual tears for fear and despair
