    Zoids: was good, but not very much story going on dere.
    Vandread: the space combat was good and pretty.
    Full Metal: its was ok but I expected better.
    Gundam: I liked the UC storyline, but for me CE sucks.
    Zone of The Enders: played da games, there were great.

    I'll give it to FMP, Eva, and Gundam... Gundam was the thing that started the real robot genre... FMP is sooo damn good... especially TSR... and probably the action packed future anime series based on the novels... Eva, well i liked eva... thats it... lol!:p

    Macross is the best, but Escaflowne and Eva are cool too though.

    I enjoyed the Gundam series. I recently got into Full Metal Panic and it's a fun show to watch.
    I sadly admit that I've never watch the Evangelion series but I will eventually :p
    I liked Zoids when I was in elementary school, but not that much anymore.

    I really would have to go with Zoids: Chaotic Century. Great series.
    Also Gundam.

    I've never been a big mecha anime fan, but I have to say that Zone of the Enders, had a nice story and some nice music, and probably my favorite mecha designs ever.

    For now, I'll say Full Metal Panic. I really like the mecha in FMP.

    I want to watch Evangelion and Gundam and see how the mecha is in those 2 series.

    I gotta go with Gundam, but the series where they were fighting on earth like a battle royal kind of thing. At least there every suit was different. Mobil Suit 8Th MS team was so realistic that it was like..."That's where we are going to be in like 100 years." I thought it was pretty cool. Eva was bad ass, Voltron is a classic. But what about Gigantor....black and white huge meca robot...old school. It's really hard to choose though, those are all really good series.

    I was going to vote for Gundam but then I voted for "others" and even so the list did not have what I wanted. I like Gundam, Zoids, FLCL( that's mecha right?), but overall I have to say Big O was my favorite. It was more artistic than most of its kind.

    My Option on following mecha animes:

    Gundam - Some animes from the Gundam series were excellent while the rest made me feel like they were beating a dead horse.

    Escaflowne - It was the music that got me hypnotized...

    Evangelion - Typical Gainax. Starts off great but crashes and burns right near the end. Had to make a movie to save their asses.

    RahXephon - I don't care if it's an Eva rip-off. It's an incrediblely well-done Eva rip-off!!

    Vandread - First and so far only anime with CG that I love.

    Zoids - Had potential but it down-right failed in storyline dept.

    Mugen no Ryvius - This was great just because of the fact the guy who designed the mechas for this anime hated mechas with a passion.

    I voted for Gudam, Evangelion, Escaflowne, FMP, and Other, the other being Soukyuu no Fafner.

    I picked Gundam because it has become my recent obession and am having such a good time watching as many Gundam series as I can.

    Evangelion because the story is so damn good. Plus the Evangelions are totally kick ass. I loved when Unit 1 went berserk. Such a good moment in anime.

    Escaflowne because I like the art, and the music.

    FMP because of the comedy, awesome fight scenes, and because it was my first mecha love.

    Fafner because of the awesome characters and good story.

    Rahxephon gets my vote. I was going to select Nadesico as well, but it as too late to chnage my choices.

    I'd have to go with the Gundam series, and I'm also a huge fan of Zoids (chaotic and new century only)

    FMP gets my vote, because I like its characters the most.

    Also, TSR rocked- even though my favorite parts didn't involve mechs... >_>

    This question, IMO, is hard to answer if the thread starter is only asking for ONE. Good thing he/she decided to use check boxes. :p

    I've seen a lot of mecha anime, but based on that list, I chose Gundam and Full Metal Panic!. I could also choose Zone of the Enders, but I haven't seen the anime. Although I can safely say that I like the mecha designs in the game, especially Jehuty.

    I've been watching Gundam series for like a decade and I've seen almost all series to date. And I'm still looking forward to the next Gundam series in the future... maybe in 2009 as the franchise will be 30 then.

    As for Full Metal Panic!, there's more to it that just the cool concept that is Arbalest - the story and characters, that is. After seeing TSR and reading some of the later novels after it, I am definitely eager to see another season soon.

    For the poll's "other" list, I chose Fafner of the Azure. And it's rather surprising that Eureka Seven is not included in that list.

    i dunno it depends. u talking about which one has the best story line? cause out of the list, i liked NGE the most. but in terms of actual mecha, i dunno its a toughy. an evangelion vs a gundam. prob gundam. unit-0 would run out of power before it would do anything.

    Full Metal Panic no doubt. Not only does it have 2 WIN OVA's but the original serie is very good too.
