    Anime doesn't get me "fired up". I'm not in my teens and 20s anymore.

    Even that is boring me these days. Preteen is fine. I just don't like how idiotic and sheltered little girls are. They have plenty of energy to fuck, but they are literally in a trance on all but the most asinine subjects. Much different back in the 70s.

    Being passionate about the things you like isn't for younger people and the idea that it is shows how mentally childish you are.

    This kind of anime doesn't (only anime featuring robot things as a major plot point I've actually liked was Gun Sword mostly because the main character reminded me of Roland Deschain in Stephen King's the Dark Tower series) but a good story in general - anime or otherwise - absolutely can and I'm past my 20s as well.

    But of course I'm more concerned with having fun in everything I do and doing it competently in my estimation rather than worrying childishly that others will judge me for it.

    Is there a time and a place for everything? Sure, I'm not about to run down the street telling people how much I love any given thing, but to say my age means I can't love things at all is absolutely asinine.

    And I say this as someone with clinical depression for whom medications simply didn't work and whose early life was fairly shit for their family being so damn poor. So even being a sad sack isn't an excuse for being older and thinking passion is for the youth.

    He was talking about himself. He should know what works for him. If anime doesn't get his blood pumping anymore, then that's it. Maybe it's car sports, hunting, or comparing brands of quality whisky that only does it for him now.

    "Anime" probably doesn't work for him anymore because he's tired of watching Samurai Champloo, Evangelion, Trigun and Naruto 99999999999999999 times.

    That accounts for nearly the entirety of what most Westerners think is "anime".

    Wow, what shat comment 9:00.

    Will you go through life like most actual borning asshole fucks in the world? Hating and shatting on everyone and everything in any way you can, once you reached the physical age of adulthood? Even becoming a multi millionaire will not change how you hate your life and follow the natural cause.

    Seriously, hope you actually grow up and improve your outlook, instead of making more versions of yourself.

    I won't watch mecha shows unless there's a cute female character piloting it.

    If there are other cute female pilots, and there's a yuri vibe as well, more the better.

    I need to go watch Simoun again.

    Shojo manga style plot and storyline for female audience or those with feminine temperament. Transforming mecha, dragons, and different species in girl form for those who likes mecha and fantasy. Plenty of yuri and yurish g-on-g actions for anyone who are into girls, what is there not to like?

    The only things not to like, plenty of cute shojo extras killed violently and horribly offscreen, and useless or shat evil males like many if not most modern fictional works.

    Gundam doesn't have hotblooded super robots. Neither does FMP.

    If you don't see a difference between any Gundam show and shows like Gunbuster, Gaogaigar or Aquarion, it's probably not worth explaining it to you in the first place.

    I never understood it's populairty. It's just so over the top it's annoying. I like more plot and drama. TTGL seemed like it was made for 5 year olds hopped up on caffine. The we can do anything stuff makes everything predictable, and ends up making it boring. Reason why Fairy Tail was so bad.

    I like five of these.t Gurenn Lagann I couldn't get past episode 7. Just was sooo stupid. I prefer Evangelion or Gundam. I like a little more plot, than just getting all hyped up and being super duper over the top all the time.

    Robotech is not a japanese anime. If you are talking about Macross, Frontier is #4. These youngsters probably don't even remember love.

    "Mecha anime", not fanfic bastardization dub of a mecha anime.

    Bet the anime-hating "weebs" did not even watch the newer reboot of Orguss, Mospeada, or any of the Marcross, let alone hunt down the origianls, yet here and everywhere they are giving negative opinions on mecha or anime in general, whilst in the same breath positive opinions on shat cartoons or live actions, as if their opinions are valid.

    Whatever, I like all on this list, and about hundreds more not on this list, equally.
