The concept was awesome and it could've been something along the lines of Godannar but it's absolutely criminal that it got shafted so hard.

I like the Fatty, and its variations, from VOTOMS. It is really overshadowed by the Scopedog, Berserga, and Standing Tortoise, but, despite it not being as flashy as the others, I love it nonetheless for its utilitarian, "function over form" design.

Also, despite the Standign Tortoise apparently being the toughest out of all the ATs (which isn't saying much), the Fatty looks more armored and tank-like to me.

Underrated and overlooked mean two differents things, so when I say The Ball from Gundam is underrated, I mean it doesn't get it's proper credit from the fandom. As for overlooked I'll say Zeruchroar from Daemon x Machina

The 'scoobies' from Phantom Crash for the OG Xbox. The game was armored-core lite and they came with AI buddies based off of animals. Hawken Mechs like the CR-T are also top-tier underrated.

Jet Alone's successor, Jet Alone II got in Evangelion 3.0+1.0 as Asuka'a Unit 02's armour. Which is way more important than just walking once and blowing up. But it's so overlooked that no one even seemed to fucking realize its a Jet Alone Unit 02 fusion.

Justeen from, well, Justeen.
Some years ago AIC wanted to create a show to promote their new animation software and tried to do some pretty unorthodox things with it like casting the main character VAs through a contest, using/tweaking discarded concept art by Yasuhiro Moriki from Gigantic Formula for the protag mechs and those old "ORIGINAL DESIGN DON'T STEAL" Aoshima and Arii model kits from the early 80s for the bad guys.
For whatever reason the whole thing fell through and copies of the only produced episode were sold at an anime convention as OVA that even still featured a preview of the second ep.

I like it. It looks like a cooler version of an Urbanmech. An Urbanmech is more of a mobile turret that specialized in surprise attacks in city fighting. But this thing looks like it can actually fight on many more types of terrain.
Urbanmechs are a beloved pain in the backside.
This ratchets that up to my thinking quite nicely.

The game is surprisingly /m/, not simply having mecha enemies but even letting you pilot the mechs. I also like the Wotan, which from the sounds of the Japanese voice acting is called the "Deus" but since it's not a Japanese game I have no idea what the original name is. Wotan is a cool name anyway, since it's the name of one of the coolest dudes ever.

So many people have a basic humanoid as their favorite Mobile Suit (kinda hard not to when 98% of them are)
But The unique look of the Byarlant. The wide broad shoulders.
Flying around with out transforming just to flex on the haters.
The shoulders/armpits having the thrusters actually makes sense, you aren't standing on the force of the thrusters.
Instead the thrusters are just pulling you upwards making it way more stable.
The limited armaments makes it feel like an ace suit. The simple kit requiring the skill of the pilot to be used to the fullest instead of the brain dead adding more weapons.
>>
>>19608462
If we're going in that direction, I'd prefer for the mech to not have arms and legs at all. Well, arms are fine if you're going to be grasping a weapon though, so it depends. That's why Zeong is so great, no legs at all. A mech shouldn't need legs. I really think Zeong is a genuinely great example of how to design a logical mech.

Damn, I love those Titan bots from Honkai Impact they can turn into a shield wall. Their attacks are basically gorilla slam combo and some variants have improved arm that strengten their fist attack. I think that's one of the best mech in the game.
Too bad the artilery variants look a bit boring looks like several launchers slapped on a pair of leg and call it a day.
The memorial fight boss, Haemdall feels a bit boring, by looking at it you could tell "I'm a winged knight bot!". Not bad, a bit boring.
Some of the newer bots (The one in Schicksal HQ update) follow sleeker design kinda like smaller Haemdall mentioned above in shape and uses agility-ish moveset. I'm not sure.
There are many new mech as well, haven't seen 'em yet since I stopped playing long ago.

Aunno, seems a bit far from the Grob. Aside from being purple, general frame, and monoeye, the similarity about them is the purple titans are also considered to be lower rank and land combatant. Well, Afaik, unlike the Grob, the Titans have no gun and can't fly.

This got talked about somewhat in the muv luv thread, but basically the 80s had a huge economic boom, anime was big and people were still buying it physically, and there were way more experienced animators, who graduated from doing older anime in general. Nowadays, we still get some crisp OVAs, but it's a lot harder to pay for all of that. Not everything is a Demon Slayer or an Evangelion, and even they have CGI worked in. So many experienced animators retired or work in directing now, and CGI is being pushed because it's cheaper, and therefore less risky.
That said, we do get some amazing CGI movies like the Berserk ones, and Hathaway looks amazing, but OVAs as a concept are really risky. Money and people is the issue, really.

Phantoma
Cool looking, with balancers they can use to stand.
HUGE backback but that's ok it have plenty of thrusters.

It feel truly feel like a Grunt, one that's actually grunting on the battlefield, carry his equipment around.
Not some dancing Special-snowfleke
Not some obvious weak mook

>>
>>
>>19539023
Do they? They look explicitly early/mid 90s to me.
>>
>>19544271
They didn't. It was designed by Syd Mead with the Sumo being the original Turn-A proposal.
>>
>>19662591
Turn A was a good example of how trusted Tomino was that they just let him do whatever he wanted without giving any thought to how Japanese people would react. Get the Blade Runner guy to design some Gundams? Sure, why not.
>>
>>19662736
The thing is that the Sumo was rejected. The Turn-A came about after Tomino basically told him 'It has to have X,Y and Z or else they're not gonna accept it at Sunrise or Bandai.'
>>
>>19662939
Well... what exactly WERE X, Y, and Z, that the Turn A was accepted despite its incredibly unique design that has never been seen in a Gundam series before or since.
>>
>>19662991
I can't remember the exact text, or such. I think Mead talked about it in an interview, but basically 'It has to have a head, it has to have a v-fin or some sort, you need to use these colours, it has to have a more heroic shillouete, etc'.
>>
>>19662991
they asked mead to make it more "graceful"

>>19662991
>Turn A was accepted despite its incredibly unique design
tomino obviously would accept it since he is the one who wanted a unique gundam for his show

guys above tomino in hierarchy probs accepted it since it was designed by a famous hi profile american designer who was and is quite popular in japan

I just watched a mecha anime, and I feel like no regulars but riches gets anything from war but people still gotta fight for resources this is just sad. In that anime, the person who got the most benefit still hiding, I hope the person gets punish one day, cause all he wants is just buying thing cheap, therefore he can ruin everything. Ruin everyone’s dream. I also learned that money is important, or social position, if you wanna achieve something/or want anything to be fair, you need money and social position. or he can just fuck you up.

I feel it, but there are a few things just feel a bit too off. I think it's the inconstancy with the shape. The rounded shapes with a rectangular outline you could make around the torso, but the limbs are all long and flat. Almost knife like. which is juxtaposed to the oddly large and human like hands on their ends.

A very nice and unique look, setting it apart from most of everything else. But has a few thing that certainly could be refined to make it match and look better, but not too bad just from looking at it. It reminds me of the early original designs they had for the Baund Doc compared to the final version. A bit of touchup and refinement and it would be a great thing.
