No love for powered armor? All the coolness of a mecha but without the size and cost issue.

Power armor as it's own concept, with no ties to any particular franchise, has never been a particularly popular topic on /m/, and honestly, complaining about that would just be weird, when most mecha threads tie to specific shows, movies, manga etc. and not just "let's discuss giant robots". You still do get the occasional thread discussing the concept of power armor, but it was never more than occasional in the first place.

Cyberpunk isn't dead. It's just vastly harder to make.
Back in 2000 all you had to do is add implant, robot and hack everything on the internet.
Nowadays people have higher expectation. The hacker can't look like a 90s punk anymore, we know implant wouldn't give superpower, that it's silly to be able hack everything and robots must at least look like the ones from Elysium.

You can deduce the reasons, it's the easiest stuff to write.
The easiest way to make a character is a self-insert of yourself or the targeted public
The easiest way to sent it to adventure is a easy trope that's accepted by the public (medieval fantasy mean you don't need to think about technology)

For publisher/editor that's easy profit. It's cheap easy to make and it cater to their cores audience: otaku who want easy escapism + some sex.
Plus they aren't expected to finish those and can replace them by another isekai meme as soon it get stale.

They're both pretty much exactly the same except the expectation for a shitty romcom is just rom and com. Even a bad one will deliver that much. A shitty isekai however is all the worse because now the heroes have so little attachment to their home life that finding a way back is not only not so much an option it's not even a consideration. Instead we get more and more watered down flavors of Dragon Quest bootlegs, set in a, and it makes me retch every time I say it, "adventurers guild" where the so called heroes don't even have to stumble into quests or actually have a proper adventurer that's not a level 1 dungeon dive complete with game mechanics because heaven forbid we actually develop a functioning and interesting world when we can just point a template RPG MODEL and never so much as threaten the lazy fucking readers with the idea of working to achieve greatness by struggling against adversity for the greater good. So while a bad romcom will at least get bad rom and bad com, a bad isekai adventure won't even get fucking adventure with all the annoying parts of the bad romcom tossed in there onto of things.

If they have the Iron Man inside the helmet looking at the face shots, then it's power armor. OOO's Birth and all the Build Riders are power armor, along with any type of Rider that does the broken helmet showing human face scene.
Hibiki's helmet removal is probably some biological nightmare.
And that's all ignoring the G3/G4/G5/V1 power armors from Agito which are undeniable power armor
>>20827227
Kabuto's are power armor, and Faiz's is likely power armor but Orphonoch's DNA might make it biological merging or whatever.

You chose a good example but in a cyberpunk setting the punk would take control of the light just entering the room, then plug his portable AI buddy into any USB plugs to hack the shut-down computer, immediately extracting the access codes that will let him freely access the completely isolated defense network.

It's almost as if you're not familiar with the idea of the villain having hubris.
Besides, with the struggle to find internetless appliances somedays, the future might not even offer wifiless coffee makers. I don't think you can get a car without a bunch of useless computers getting in the way of the basic ability to fix them.

there being a market for something and there being products available for that market are two different things.
there is a market for internetless notspying farm equipment that doesn't brick itself for two months if you replace a tail light, but good luck getting John Deere to sell you any.

Isekai's popularity peak, at least in Japan, was a good few years ago. Now people are just making Dragon Quest inspired fantasy works. Western weebs are catching the end of the wave as Crunchyroll et.al. try to squeeze a few more eggs out of that golden goose.

The financial reason there was so much isekai, Narou being a webnovel to franchise pipeline, stopped because Narou asked people to stop submitting isekai to them.

Nah. Wrong. Many isekai anime/manga productions are still at the forefront. It'll wane, but not right now.

Why would you give a shit about an armored suit makes you look fat when it adds armor, weapons and support systems that will not only help you traverse, navigate, affect and survive a battle? I'm having a harder time imagining caring about it; or even noticing it, honestly. How much of a prissy bitch do you have to be to refuse to wear something that will be so helpful for your actual job because "this'll make me LOOK fat"?

The only Rider that I would consider fully power armor by that description was G3/X, which actually had to be put on. All the other still use transformation technomagic of somesort. G3-X even moved like how you expect from a bulky ass power armor that it was slow and clunky, with most of his attacks from his weapons.
The suits from 555 is also possible cause that series was the most sci-fi of all the KR series. No magic, just pure science of a sort outside of the way the suit forms I guess.
