This is what the rule says. Mecha and mecha-related. These are regular planes, so not /m/.

It seems pretty clear cut if we are going by a definition such as this: [...]may refer to both scientific ideas and science fiction genres that center on giant robots or machines controlled by people. Mechas are typically depicted as humanoid mobile robots[...]

As if my opinion is worth a hill of shit in a rainstorm I think /m/ should be defined as any entertainment that can call it's origin from Japan and is mechanical in nature.
>>
>>17149498

So, why do Kaiju get a pass? can't that go on /jp/? do we have to be the refugee board just because there's some audience overlap?
>>
not /m/ even if i like ww2 prop plane so get out
>>
>>17149612
Meanwhile Ace Combat is /m/
>>
>>17149486
The more elaborated rules from some years ago specifically say "robots and advanced robotics", things with "a common link" to that content, or "a trace amount" of same. Which is to say that things like Doctor Who would get a pass because they routinely have robot characters show up, or FMA or VEG because robo-prosthetics, or Symphogear and Infinite Stratos because mechanized/mecha-like armaments and attacks.

There are already boards for real-world vehicles though so I don't think it really belongs here if it isn't sci-fi in some way. But then again we've had various singular off-topic threads over the years where people were cool about it and just happened and was done with. There was a pretty chill Sailor Moon thread, for instance, that managed not to devolve into a not-/m/ bitchfest. Someone brought up it wasn't /m/ and the response was "absolutely but screw it we're having fun". Amazing what people can do when they aren't trying to be obnoxious or jumping down each other's throats.

>>17149510
Can't say I'm a fan of it either, but they are justified by two reasons.

1: MechaGodzilla.
2: Kaiju are sci-fi monsters of the type that a lot of mecha fight, so they fulfill the 'common link' in a way.
>>
>>17149618
Ace Combat has sci-fi elements.

No: This would serve only to further dilute the board. Come back when the show has a science fiction element and technology capable of building robotics, a robot character or giant robots or is aware of the genre tropes of mecha shows.

yes it's /m/ fuck the autists
it's also steampunkish, that's also /m/

1st ep wasn't very good

>>17150023
Does an airborne aircraft carrier count?

>>17149934
But /m/ loves the propeller plane flight sequence in Honey Mayonnaise.

go fuck yourself
there's lots of crap /m/ that's much less /m/ than this show

It's not /m/ because ki-43 won against a Shiden.

but they're famous for being flashy
just look at some of the Schneider cup racers
the only anime that deals with that stuff is Porco Rosso, which is a damn shame since that era is so much more interesting than yet more WW2 fighter wank.

First episode is nice, but I have questions
1. Why do Zero cannon shots are no different in comparison with rifle-caliber MGs?
2. Why did Shiden pilots made little to no effort to outrun Zeros and then hit them on speed?
>>17150037
>steampunkish
That's dieselpunk, m8
>>
>>17150508
No, that's not how zeppelins work.
Zeppelins are rigid airships, so they are more durable than a hydrogen-filled balloon.
Also, we do not know if those zeppelins are not filled with helium.

Also, if they were to target a zeppelin and they wanted to see it destroyed, not captured, why didn't they brought the planes that actually had weaponry that could take a zeppelin down in no time?
For example, if all those Zeroes would be replaced by Yak-7 with RS-82 rockets, zeppelin would be down in no time.

You know levers exist in real life, right?

mechs also exist in real life, what is your point

After War Kotobuki X is good
Much better opening episode than girly airforce
Guess a disadvantage of 3D animation is it takes longer to create unique models for throwaway dudes.

They are Ki-43s not Zeros.

Japanese mysticism leans heavily on animism, and the spirit that inhabits the mechanical giant robots of /m/ are the same that inhabit kaiju.
Or as the kids would say it:

It's arbitrary. We're the punching bag of the chans and I hate it.

>>17153133
Have you ever consider that maybe, just maybe, maybe their plan was to try and captured the zeppelin but they can fight the MC group so they try to down it instead?
>>
>>17153160
How would they capture a zeppelin if all they have is Zeros?
They should have had a vehicle for boarding party.
>>
>>17153248
You have to clear the enemy fighters first.
>>
>>17153278
Still, the transport should have been nearby. For example, the Figueroa assault in Crimson Skies. First, they strip the airship off it's defence, then they send a bomber to drop the troops on it.
But then it would have been seen on the radar, because, you know, piston engine zeppelins and heavy planes can't be that stealthy.
>>
>>17153307
Let's just wait and see then. It's only the first episode, we don't know how the air pirates operate yet.
>>
After finally watching the first episode, my main complaint with it is that is a bit too generic and previsible. You have the colourful main cast squad of skilled yet quirky characters of already seen stock - serious, profissional family girl; easygoing drunkard; elegant and mannerly girl; stoic and emotionless girl (with sick family member); loud, partially dumb and gluttonous MC, and probably with an annoying, trickster kid character coming next episode. You know from the get-go that that band of male braggants will die to show off how the main cast is something else. We can already foresee that blue snake plane killed a former partner of MC girl, and that she will meet its pilot, which is most certainly another quirky girl, in some odd situation and befriend her without knowing that she is her enemy pilot. Probably the only thing that really amused me with this episode was the character of the airship captain.

Also, we need more references to Kato Hayabusa.
