Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Report Abuse
A modern version of Gundam Wing, complete with super cool new robots and a superbly political twist that brings new life to the franchise. It also has some interesting new characters, most notably the four Gundam Meisters.

Gundam Wing started my Gundam infatuation. Gundam 00 only helped to instill it.

I am not surprised that this show is number one. Its got amazing Gundam styles, the story is superb, the realism that this series contains is unmatched and how all these aspects come together into one of the best things i've ever watched. This is the kind of show that you will always remeber in the back of your head. Many people dont realize this but the future that series shows is extremely plausible, especially the oil crisis we are facing now. The Space Elevator is being developed currently with the plan to make solar power from the help of the elevator structure. Aside from the realism, the characters in this show are done masterfully. I hope to see more shows done like this, very life changing! Enjoy

For me its really the best anime i have ever watched,it was just so perfect,so in depth story great action and awsome design,i enjoyed every second of every episode,although it is a sci-fiction it was so realistic and it features some real life events such as the war in Ireland and real countries and the twist in the story is just incredible.Never in my life though that any gundam series could come close to gundam wing until i watched 00,i love both of them but i certainly enjoyed 00 more.

This is a good series. It takes some of Gundam Wing's aspects and adds a pinch of salt in the form of interesting characters. Heck, I found myself actually rooting for some of the so-called "antagonist" characters like Patrick Colesawar and Sergei Smernov.

One of the best Gundam series out there. It sways off from the typical Gundam stereotype set by old Gundam series and Tomino creations and goes off to create an universe of it's own. A masterpiece of modern age. A series for a bored gundam fan that is fed up with constant repeats of the same story TOmino created.

Amazing how modern anime fans haven't experienced series from the 70 -90s. So many shows missing from this list like Space Ideon and Macross 7. While 00 was a decent alt universe Gundam, it fails in comparison to Zeta Gundam (later) or Stardust Memory. If you want to watch classic anime, you might want to check out this site: www (dot) mechacore (dot) com. Most of the classic and modern day mecha anime is posted there.

This series started off pretty boringly, and my first impression was "this will never top gundam seed. never." But eventually after the 8th episode or so, things began getting so epic, so fast that I was practically blown away by the sheer awesomeness. Also, you can never right a positive review on G00 without complimenting the 2nd OP- Ash Like Snow. Simply awesome.

Oh my god, words cannot express how AWESOME this anime was. It comes in two seasons, similar to Gundam Wing, 25 episodes each. Just be warned, after you finish the First Season, let it sink in, then watch the Second. I swear, the ending of Second Season was amazing. I love this anime, amazing storyline and awesome characters. The Artwork is simply amazing and the connection with the characters is great.

My favorite anime. It has some of the best fighting I have seen in any of the Gundam series. The mechs are amazingly awesome and the story is amazing. I also think this Gundam series has the best characters of any Gundam series. I ACTUALLY fell in love with the characters and almost cried when one of them died. Amazing anime. Watch this.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Report Abuse
The high octane mecha/slice of life/thriller/etc. anime with some great new mecha ideas. I love the Gawain, the Lancelot, and especially the Gurren Mk. II. The characters are great, the giant robots are totally original, and the story's so engrossing that you never want it to end.

The anime was quite intense... had a sense of Cruelty.... Shirley the cutest character was killed.....The machines were cool.... But the origin of Geass and the sword of akahsa wasn/t explained...the story ended splitting all friends at Ashford..... The story could have been made longer and happier.... But one can still consider it one of the best anime yet........

beside the first season being awesome I had major problem with the number 2 it felt more a drag on then something going on and in the end it was predictable also the ending is to unrealistic to be good ending it had all this dark twist plot and then pow everyone can get along and everyone happy in mecha terms they look really cool but could have more action but I notice that was not the focus of this anime

I really, really enjoyed Code Geass, but I'm very sure it's not the "greatest" anime ever. I have not seen all anime out there so therefore I cannot assume this is the greatest. Before you respond to my comment I must note I have seen all episodes and both seasons of Code Geass, but be logical there are likely other greater shows out there.

This anime, is amazing. Although, it has its mecha action, it isn't centered around it. It has enough mecha action, in my opinion, to satisfy your mecha craving, as well as much more. I highly recommend this. It will amaze you.

Yep, it's a mecha anime indeed but as you get into the plot, you'd be surprised that it doesn't feel like mecha at all. I dunno, but that's what i felt. Interesting characters, though, with the Geass ability... But compared to Gundam or Macross, I'd say that Code Geass 1 & 2 utilized mechas as support for the plot of the main characters...

I don't know what others are on about, there is loads of mechs in this and they are quite unique mechs as well. Its an awesome anime that doesn't rely on outragous mechs that can do anything by themselves. In 'Code Geass' mechs need to 'refuel'. They have attachments that allow them to 'boost', 'jump' and help them ascend or descend cliffs and buildings. They are not multi-role mechs either. There are land mechs, aerial mechs, and submersible ones too. They have a more realistic cockpit and ejection system that is frankly just cool. As the episodes go on you get more advanced mechs but even these ones aren't unstoppable behemouths like in some other animes. And most importantly the story is really amazing. It's not just a monotone mecha anime there are other 'plot devices' and some special abilities that broaden the anime even more. Just give it a try, most episodes can be found online very easily. :P

Tengen Toppen Gurren Lagann Report Abuse
Half of it may be making fun of other mecha anime and anime in general, but this high octane show is just too hard not to love. It has great characters, the most unique mecha after Gasaraki, and some of the best catchphrases in anime history.

People have called Gurren Lagann a ripoff of other mecha series. I couldn't disagree more. It is a TRIBUTE to the super robot genre if not the entire mecha genre. We see the series progress from the zany hot-bloodedness of 70s series like Mazinger Z, Getter Robo, and the Nagahama Trilogy (the time the Episodes were named after Kamina's Quotes) to the grounded, militant series with romance like Dancouga, Zeta Gundam, Macross, and Gunbuster (Nia's quotes), to the darkly emotional series like Evangelion and Brain Powerd (Rossiu's quotes) to the return to hot-bloodedness with lessons learned from all of the other phases like GaoGaiGar, Dai-Guard, Dendoh, Gravion, Dibuster, and finally Gurren Lagann itself (Simon' quotes).

You can use all your "good story" and "its overrated" arguments, but you guys will just keep blocking yourself from the Core Raw Greatness that is TTGL, (witch haves a more than good enough story to drive the message home and back) This work of art goes beyond all standards and so It shan't be compare with standard Anime...Pierce the heavens and don't stop there, make your own Reality regardless EVERYTHING, Thats the Gurren Brigade way, thats MY WAY!

I like this show, but the truth is that I've never found any other anime so overrated. What really makes me sad is how people praise the "manliness" of it's characters, when most of what Kamina and Simon do is to loudly repeat empty and meaningless speeches. I would find them more mature, malier, if they actually thought before speaking: of course the characters can be as brave as they want when they have the Spiral Energy working as THE Deus Ex Machina engine. Watch for the action, but don't expect much plot.

Just a note for those who didn't want it to end...HOW COULD IT GO ON? I mean, it is bar none the most epic of anime, but with the way each episode didn't just one-up the previous, but ten-upped them, and with the final battle having mechs so big they're literally tossing ENTIRE GALAXIES at one another and hardly even feeling it...there's very little they could do to top that, and they quit while they could.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Report Abuse
One of the biggest names in mecha anime, it's all about Ikari Shinji and his struggle to pilot the Evangelion to face off against Angels, giant living beings bent on destroying mankind. It gets pretty weird at times (and I mean WEIRD), but the characters are very memorable, and it's excellently psychological. Just don't be surprised if you don't get the ending. No one else does.

This anime is amazing, but it's the kind of thing you have to analyze a bit. If you watch it repeatedly, there are lots of easter eggs for people that are into things like psychology, philosophy, and comparative religion. Tons of Kabbalah stuff, Christian symbols, even references to Babylonian religion... and don't get me started on all the Freudian stuff. One of the most cerebral anime ever made. The Rebuilds (1.11, 2.22, etc) are brilliant, even better than the original series.

Yeah, sorry but I think you can be an anime lover and still be forgiven for not watching this due to an aversion to overly emo drama and a massive lack of likeable characters. Tries to be a very clever anime but only gets half-way there.

Code Geass is SOOO AMAZING that it deserves this second entry. I suppose it has a different feel than other mecha anime shows. It was the second anime i ever watched (ive only seen 3) but it was a great transition from death note because they both have A LOT of strategising.

Good God this was a horrible show. I watched the whole thing hoping it'd get better. It's a long anime full of the main character whining. It's a mecha anime because it has mecha in it, but they're a side thought in the series. Unlikeable characters, sparse action and a lot of whining. Avoid at all costs.

By far the greatest anime i have ever had the pleasure of watching, not so much for the mecha which is the best of any mecha anime, but for the story line and romance, which is unbelievably great. The first half of the series is difficult to understand and you got to be okay with some weird and stupid at the beginning but if you watch it episode by episode and pay attention, you will come to agree that it is the best Mecha/Comedy/Romance anime out there without a doubt. 100/5 stars any day.

Worth the time to watch. I would recommend this. It's a bit old but heck its has pretty original characters and Gundam designs. There ain't nothing too fancy that makes them uber powerful just the kind of Giant Robot action no catches no secrets..... except maybe Zero and Epyon but they still aren't overpowered and invincible. Any fan of mecha action should check this out.

Gundam Seed/Gundam Seed Destiny Report Abuse
A modern reinterpretation of the original Gundam saga with updated mobile suits and totally different characters. It may seem like nothing more than a rehash at first, but eventually, it grows into its own story. It then becomes extremely exciting and the best Gundam has ever had to offer. Plus, the Strike Freedom is possibly the single coolest Gundam ever.

the best ever gundam series i've watched. the plot is good an so with the characters. it has its flaws but the the thing that makes it best from the others is that the story in seed which is continued in destiny are connected to reality, and everytime the main characters opinion cames out, it hits the spotlight, all the thoughts, the argues, the lessons were always so clear. it also shows the truth to how the problem to blood killing, the hunger of war , corruption and discrimination to human differences starts. i mean seriously, you're illogical if you dont get the story

this one should be number one it's the greatest first anime series i have ever watched when i was about 5-6 and now at the age of 17 i've just finished watching the whole series again and it's opened my eyes to how corrupt the world is and that we will only end-up destroying ourselves with all the pointless fighting that is everywhere in the world even in schools where kids are being treated poorly by their peers and teachers at some schools still won't except the fact that their school is exceptional. when those students then get older even ones they thought were there friends stab them in the back. everyone's guilty and us as a human race shouldn't be allowed to continue living if all we do is pollute corrupt and kill innocent people with no remorse. we should all just die a painful and slow death, not considering that it's already happening with north koreans thinking neighboring countries are there threat and them claiming to posses nuclear weapons and scaring the innocent people in countries where the leaders will only say that they don't have the capabilities and that everything is fine, if their wrong then the whole world would be destroyed nuclear draw no one will win but if north korea attacks one country there would be retaliation and everyone will suffer and there's no way around it. sure gundam seed was sad and ended with the human race almost being annihilated by their own actions, but we should all learn from that war isn't a pretty thing and that no one actually wins one persons killed then another in revenge and so on...it's all pointless

i never liked Gundam Wing, dont understand the fascination with it, full of plot holes. character development is non existant or illogical. having watched all gundam incarnations in existance, i LOVED the 08th MS TEAM, the original SEED series and Gundam 00. Destiny SEED has its flaws and for a while doesnt know where it wants to go, but halfway thru becomes interesting again. bottom line i felt most emotional connection ith SEED. probably score and phenomenal songs had something to do with it too.

Added 2 years ago by guest, -6 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
This series is AWFUL! The story is bland and sappy, The relationships between the characters are over-dramatic, the character designs are too similar to each other in a way that makes males indistinguishable from females, the main mechs are overpowered, and the overuse of recycled animation is just glaring. These are just some of the problems with the shows. Of all the AUs of Gundam, this is the worst. Go watch and read the side-stories, they are all much better than seed or destiny.

The problem w/Gundam Seed, is that from a realistic story point, the only mech one needs IS the Strike Freedom, or one of the other Ubermechs. Everything else militarily is irrelevant. Its like building a Battleship the size of a pontoon. Sad really, most gundam series are rather decent. Seed is the worst one I've seen yet; unless you're looking for the highest powerlevel gundam of all - Super Gundam Level 4 - Bwah ha ha!

Heroic Age Report Abuse
The story's theme is based on stories in Greek mythology, especially those surrounding Heracles, upon whom the main character is based, and his Twelve Labors. Many of the other characters are also based on Greek mythological figures; characters share similar names to their Greek counterparts, and how their relationship is defined with others correspond with Greek stories. The title of the series, Heroic Age, is also a slight testament to the similarities to Greek mythology, referring to the time of the Heroic Age. The tribes featured in the anime are loosely based on Hesiod's Five Ages of Mankind.

Personally i don't think this anime should be in the top 20. in the initial episodes it may seem to you like an awsome anime but when you get to the conclusion of the series youll be dissapointed by the pace & plot of this series. it doesnt have much emphasis on mecha. the action scenes are very few, poor. the fights are not technical. its just guns and simple punches. its basically those ecchi animes with inoriginal/poor mecha & character design. if you have watched several mecha animes you would agree with me on this.

Zoids (Entire Franchise) Report Abuse
Has 5 seasons each with a different story to it. Zoids is a series that features mechanised combat units (called Zoids) that battle each other in either wars or tournament based competition etc. The main difference between this series and anime like Evangelion, Macross and Gundam is that their mechas don't look humanoid, they resemble animals. Everything from your extinct dinosaurs and Mammoths to your wolves and sea creatures. My personal favourite Zoids are either the War Shark (Primarily water bound but has been seen in sand) or the Raynos (ariel combat unit). Its a must watch show. Recommend NCZ or CC

One of the best mecha animes ever. The musical parts get boring from time to time (you can always skip ahead) but when you watch the last episode you will think it was worth it. Not the best anime ever but the last episode is the absolute best anime episode ever. dont miss this great series

Mobile Suit Gundam Report Abuse
The father of the Gundam franchise and the one to take the genre into mainstream. It brought us the first really cool giant robots, the Gundams, and gave us a great, epic war story along with it. Most of the other shows never would have even happened if it wasn't for Mobile Suit Gundam.

It's easy to see why this series was so revolutioary when it first aired. It looked more on the subject of war and showed us that when it is boiled down to it, there is no "good" or "evil" in war.

Guilty Crown Report Abuse
The quality and epicness in this anime are astounding. While the main character of this anime does not actually pilot a giant mecha himself, there are plenty of other characters in the anime doing it. The concept of this anime feels unique and gives plenty of room for variety in fighting (even if he as the main character one shots almost all mechs he comes across) i would definitely recommend this here.

Forget the ending, the whole second half of the series was completely stupid; but the very first episode made my blood race as much the last arc of Gurren Lagann did. For what the show could have been, I believe it should come right behind Code Geass. Also, Mika Kobayashi's "Bios" is phenomenal.

Personally, I think that this series has plenty of aspects that were inspired by older shows and still some that were taken up by newer ones, resulting in well-thought-out mechas. However, that's just me. I recommend watching it just to see how you feel about it, OVA sequel included.

My God, this series was BORING AS HELL. Combining in the exact same way, while doing the exact same attacks with a barely changing design, bland-looking allies, and an awful plot and antagonists does not make this a good show. All of you fanboys out there who like this show for whatever reason need to stop overhyping this series and disappointing us with this in the end. The sequel OVA was much better than this show. Don't watch this ever.

Robotech is a bastardized version of the original Macross series... they took out key parts and played it out of order when it first aired. True Macross fans dismiss this series completely because of this. Just watch a subbed version of the Macross series from the beginning for the full experience!

On some scenes in Robotech you can see the original Macross character names written, "Lisa Hayes" has a shuttle with "M. Hayase" written next to her seat (Misa Hayase is her name in Macross) in about episode 10.

I'm not sure why you're saying the art is better than Macross. The first 36 episodes ARE series 1 of Macross. The Robotech art is the SAME ART as Macross. Episodes 37-85 are from the anime series "Southern Cross" and "Genesis Climber Mospaeda". Might as well watch all of the original series with the storylines and music intact. The American adaptation music sucked.

Giant Robo is considered one of the true classics of anime. With each episode varied in time(35-60 minutes each), each episode is like a movie, it sounds and feels like one. It's over-the-top action and adventure will leaving you grinning cheek to cheek. It was so over-the-top, those who watch the last episode after watching the first six, have known to spontaneously combust - it's that good and enjoyable! Overall, I give this a 10/10. This is a must-own to any and all anime fans. Truly a masterpiece in every sense of the word.

And it always contained more than one surprise behind everything. It is also quite sad, sad for the little girl, sad for the protagonist who slips in to quiet madness.. Sad for the metal alien creature, peiced together in a lab. But it all ends well. Or at least, well enough. :)

I couldn't believe this wasn't on the list. Easily one of the best Gundam animes out there, it's themes are far more mature than the average Gundam anime. It's very short, but it's a romantic tragedy akin to Romeo and Juliet. It's an OVA, so it's short and to the point, but it's like one of those short story masterpieces that leaves you feeling emotional.

The Mecha fight scenes are epic and the storyline and direction is easy to understand in the realms of Japanese anime which is a breath of fresh air when you try to understand something like Evangelion. Detonator Orgun was my first and still my favourite Mecha Anime.

Diebuster Report Abuse
One of the best action anime I've seen. The animation is godlike - the action scenes are amazing. You can feel the intensity of every exchanged punch. There's explosions, large beams of doom, and giant mecha battles. The characters are awesome, and the anime has a great serious tone to it. If you have a good woofer, prepare to be blown away. But DO NOT WATCH THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN THE FIRST SERIES (GUNBUSTER). If you have seen Gunbuster, it will make your Diebuster experience much better

Watch Gunbuster, then Diebuster, then Gurren Lagann. DIebuster throws common sense out the window and goes over 9000, so check in your disbelief at the door and you won't be disappointed.

Shin Mazinger Z Report Abuse
An artistic way of retelling the classic Mazinger story, with no shortage of plot or action either way, and new twists on old characters and mecha.

Zegapain Report Abuse
Awesome mecha anime. The story is kind of fishy - apparently all the humans have died, and the remaining ones are those who live in a virtual computer-simulated world. Some however have managed to break out, and are fighting, to protect, what seems to be the location of last server, while the enemies are trying to find the server, and make it their home.

Voltron / Go-Lion Report Abuse
Who hasn't seen Voltron , the 5 lion mecha .. well , he cannot call himself a mecha fan :D Even if the american version is more child friendly and all the violent/deaths part is cut off , the anime is still one to remember and watch whenever you get the crave for an awesome mecha anime.

Appleseed Report Abuse
One of the originals and best. Landmates are one of the best mecha designs out there showing how mecha likely would be if they got made. Legendary design, characters that stay with you, awesome, massive universe. Only problem for me, is the storyline tries to get too philosophical at times, and as happens more often than not, fails.
