    ZOMFG Gundam Unicorn 2 now subbed! (there are streams, not torrents yet though, that would be inevitable anyway lol)

    Gundam Seed sucked and so do narrow minded people who dismiss entire series or genres because of 1 $%it title.

    Thats probably why kids love the anime...
    EVA is for the grown up gundamn for kids...

    Eva VS Gundamn, creating more flame wars on forums than any other topic for years...

    to clarify they look like your generic run of the mill robot kids toy there's nothing unique about there design that really sets them apart hell zone of the enders had better mechs imo

    i bet if you asked 100,000 ppl what a mech looks like they would describe a gundam

    Because Gundam is the staple for almost all mecha anime and some American TV shows. Of course they would describe a Gundam. Besides, you seem to be under the believe that a "generic" description of a bipedal mech from one series is vastly different than one of the others. Lets test:

    It is a large bipedal tank with multiple weapons including lasers. They have different color schemes and each has a strange and unique weapon all their own. Except for the general military issued ones which are all grey and/or flat green in color.

    Anyone care to guess what anime I am talking about?

    Yeah dropped after 2 episodes of generic mecha action...

    Escaflowne are some of the most awesome mechs ever...
    Never watched eureka for the simple fact its about mecha...
    Code geass was cool...
    Macross zero and F were great...
    Strangely enough, it seems i watch at least a mecha anime every year, now watching Star driver, like many say, its FABULOUS!!

    Basquash was really cool last year, an original mix of sports and mechs...
    There was also Xamdou, it was awesome...

    Edit: I watched Gasaraki, Japan Mythology more mechs was an interesting combo...

    That is why I don't like any Gundam in the UC line.

    See, I'm a gundam fan, but I am with you all on the rewashing of the same plot.. I really didn't care for Destiny at all due to how repetitive it was. Gundam was a gate way to start watching all the mech anime that was out there.. Gundam and Escaflowne was it for me. I love Escaflowne so much it was my first box sets of both the anime and the movie..

    Now, do I feel that the other "mecha" anime is better.. Yeah, it is.. I'm just one to stick to something I liked when it was from my child hood..

    I don't like Gundam because my "gateway" to mech anime was the original NGE. That tends to raise your mech anime standards above average.
