For me I can't get into Mecha type shows and I don't know why. Every single one that has had it, I've found myself either lost with whats going on or not interested and it's just back ground noise as that point. Does anyone else have a type that they don't do well with?


Mecha types can get really cliche. Mech gets summoned, falls from the sky and remains in perfect working order. Mech is sentient or some shit. Mech has some superpower. Mech is some sort of savior of humanity. Mech heals itself using the pilot's willpower. Mech has an unlimited power source. Or any of those shitty, overused ideas.

I love machines. They're rugged, dirty, noisy, messy, inefficient, break down when you need them most, require unpleasant amounts of maintenance, get you injured, require constant updates, steal an unhealthy amount of time out of your social life and at the same time they get the job done and make you so damn grateful to the people who invented them.

I see mechs as machines and I want them to be like machines and not some magical, overpowered, half-sentient, deus ex machina!

LOL

I wasn't trying to be deep... Just needed to rant about how I love machines but can't seem to get into mecha anime. Although GITS and Gurren are exceptions, even though Gurren has a couple of cliches.

I can't get into mecha or sci-fy for some reason... it's just, boring to me. And much too confusing.
For example, I'd love to watch Steins;Gate and Guilty Crown but they both left me so confused after 1 episode.

I also can never get into the shonen fighting shows like Naruto or Bleach. Boring one-dimensional characters in a one-dimensional world with a one-dimensional planet.


Steins;Gate gets good after the 13th or 14th episode, and everything eventually comes together. I was confused as hell first too, but it's definitely worth watching.


Oh okay, I'm not the only one :P. I get confused easily in mecha and futurey anime when they don't describe in full detail. Thanks for the info!
