I've seen some of these. I haven't seen the other A-Ko stuff (OAVs) apart
from the movies...But I'll include it. Cowboy Bebop and B Crisis aren't
mecha series to me for some reason which I can't point out.

This is too OT now. So I'll stop here on this and discuss this further with
you guys offlist...

> If you go by the Japanese definition of mecha, as I understand it, you
should also include any kind of vehicle shows, Like Tank Police, etc. I

reactions they had. But I really felt that mobile suits and powerarmors are
our definition of mecha.

But I still don't feel that Bubblegum Crisis is a mecha series however...
For some reason, I can't classify it there...

I really think I need to find a fixed definition of a mecha series...

think it was a Giant Robot series (Cross Fight! Cross Fight! - Dangai
