Gundam itself started a new classification of "real robots". Lately
however, lot's of "real robot" mecha shows are getting closer and closer to
"super robots".

I too am a fan of super robots. Particularly Getta and the new Mazinkaiser.
I guess most of us started that way.

Hmm, well, since anime mecha has so many types of robots running around
(from hardsuits to
mobile armors to combining ships to transforming vehicles to...) I really
appreciate having different
categories for mecha (so if anyone asks whats the difference between Giant
Robo and Votoms, I
could at least give them different criteria under which the two titles would
each fall under. Eh, to
cut my rant, I meant its a good way to organize the mechs. ^_^;; (like MS or

Well, that's how some purists are, they bring it to a point that they feel
as if they were the ones being
hated and not the genre.

I like Mazinger Z, Goshogun, Dancougar, Gaogaigar, Dunbine, Votoms, Gundam,
Eva, Giant Robo,
Getta, Gunbuster, Dual and the next freakin kewl anime mecha you can throw
at me... well I do have
a certain amount of cringe factor when it comes to turn-A. v ^_^;;
