Tracking down mecha anime
« on: September 04, 2014, 02:51:47 pm »
It has been said that in some ways Evangelion is Anno's critique to what he saw as wrong with the mecha anime genre of the time.  Lists of shows that Evangelion has influenced abound, but what were the titles that Anno was critiquing?

Probably shows with mecha that are even older than NGE
... hmm, I can't think of too many, maybe older Gundam,
Mazinger Z, (which I always read as 'magaZINE-er Z' )
and Bubblegum Crisis (w/ sequel Bubblegum Crash)
Anything else?
