>>20407720
You know, if you pronounce that as "gi ra faiz-er" then it actually sounds pretty cool.

“Overman King Gainer” always stood out to me as a particularly epic name

Having at least one letter, one hyphen, one number.

>>20406060
Unrelated but why is every mecha power green? Psycommu, getter rays, 00 particle things, ideons thing, spiral power

It also starts with G
>>
>>20406060
G's are obviously very important, other than that go nuts
>>
>>20411821
because it looks great in space
>>
>>20412214
>muh cool
Fuck off retard, not every answer is because le cool
>>
>>20412820
so what's the answer then? and I didn't say cool you fucking retarded gorilla
>>
>>20412927
Same shit
>>
>>20411821
Green is a color associated with life and nature. So associating green energy with the mecha can make it more lively, and also symbol its more than mere machine. This definitely applies to getter machines, and Ideon.

I mean your not wrong, colors in the blue-green color range look great against black

I mean I guess you could make that association but I think it's just color theory. Getter, Gurren Lagann and Ideon all three are red and green looks great paired with it. That's pretty much it.

Red and green are contrasting colors so of course they would look good side by side. Also this contrast can play into showing that liveliness they're trying to portray in the machine, with red representing the machine and green the life inside. I mean that's really looking into it but it makes sense.

>>20406060
I think there are 3 factors for a mecha to have a good name (goes for the shows or franchises in general)

1. Simple wording, necessary for it to be marketable and translation.
2. Only 1-3 words used in the name. Any more and it becomes to complex to remember easily, and usually gets shortened some way.
3. Vocally in the name there's a sound that originates in the front of the mouth, such as c, d, m, or t. And the vowel of A or O comes right after.

(this applies to English of course, I know the names are pronounced differently in Japan. But this is what makes names sound good in English at least.)

Many franchises and shows have these 3 factors in their name. Such as Armored Core, Mobile Suit Gundam, Getter Robo, Mazinger, Armored Trooper VOTOMS, etc. And if could there are franchises that don't follow this trend or don't have all the factors, such as Muv-luv or Legendary Giant God Ideon

Trying singing it's name out loud. If it can carry a song then it's a good name.

By these metrics Ginguiser is a masterpiece.
>>
>>20422933
It is.
>>
You'd think A or T would be more popular considering the early shows (Astroganger, Tetsujin, Tetsuwan Atom, Danguard Ace, etc.)
