His beef seems to be with the machines having human proportions, as opposed to
merely being humanoid in the sense of having a torso, arms, legs and head.
Votoms and MADOX-01 would qualify as "realistic" by these criteria, since the
Armored Troopers and MADOX don't look like men wearing armor, but rather like
machinery assembled in a humanoid configuration. Patlabor and Gasaraki would
both fail this test, as both the Patlabors (meaning the ones used by the police
and JSDF) and Tactical Armors all have near-human proportions and thus resemble
armored men.
