You know i dont know if u guys noticed but dont u think most mech anime has something to deal with global affairs? For example:Code Geass and Blassreiter...they both have something to do w/ some for of racism/discrimination. Code Geass deal w/ the "Elevens" or Japanese and Blassreiter deal w/ "Outsiders" or Immigrants.

I just wanted to see how many ppl noticed this or is it just me <.<

Only mods can move it. Best way to do so is to report your own thread to the mods. Do you know how to do so? If no, go to the OP of this thread, and that button, and fill out the report(for example Wrong section, want it to get moved to the anime section), once you've done so, the mods will take care of the rest.

You are talking about recent mecha animes.... The 70s had alien invaders and ancient civilizations bent on retaking the earth, whereas the 80s had more philosophical themes. Real robots touch this kind of thing more often; it probably started with Mobile Suit Gundam. The Newtype concept? Zeon being the superior race? People living in space being called Spacenoids?

It's not new, my friend. If you want something different from that sort of stuff, you might want to check the other side of mecha: the Super Robot.

...I think so. You see, animes like NGE and GS/GSD are all related to war, the battle for power, and cloning.

Gundam 00 where Setsuna grew up from a civil-war torn country which is a future fictional Kurdistan which has some parallels with modern-day Kurdistan
And also the three-worlds theory where three superpowers dominate the world like Union,HRL and AEU.

gundam 00 also talks about energy consumption right? specifically fossil fuels which made them agree to the big big big solar panel project .

Code Geass goes for the rebellion but --- has this extraordinary geass thing

I don't know if it's that related to hidden message or some kind of persuasion but what enters my head is -- they did it for nice plot

It was a nice setting for a battle/war after all.
