My first mecha show was Matzinger Z. I didn't know it was a Japanese show and I was too young to care, but I've always loved mechs even if they show up in a Shoujo series like Rayearth.

Ever since I watched the mangled goodness that was Robotech, I've wanted to pilot a mech. I've imagined myself being a pilot.

In the beginning my ideas were simple thoughts, like "I want to be like Max Sterling" or "I want a blue mech". As I've watched many, many more shows I've developed those ideas, into something a bit more detailed yet much less glamorous or even all that appealing. Oh well. Maybe I shouldn't have thought about it that much.

What kind of mech would I pilot, and what kind of pilot would I be...



I still want a blue mech. It still has to be blue. Blue fits me. I suppose if I have to choose some other color, green is tolerable.

When I saw Macross Frontier with Michael's VF-25G with sniper gear, I thought "OH ___ THAT'S IT!! That's what I want!!"

If it's an aerospace mech, I would be piloting a long-range attack type with either buster and/or sniper weapons and attachments. Most of the time I would not be hitting the vanguard because that's not my style of combat (I do pretty much the same thing in online FPS matches- Figure out approximately the advancing line, and hang abreast or slightly behind and give support / cover / interrupt fire and just be a nuisance in general)

If it's a solely land-bound mech, I would be a relatively light armored fast scout (though I may not do very well... I got whooped playing scout during the Mechwarrior beta test. The only time I did well was when I didn't follow everyone else and tried to be clever by climbing to the hilltop above the city and sniping with missiles)

As a pilot, I'm the kind of person who just wants to get in there, get the job done, and get out in one piece to fight another day. Nothing irks me more than watching some hot shot rushing into things trying to show off while getting the rest of us shot up and killed (worse while going to his rescue). If you have a death wish, do it on your own time. I'm here to cover your ___ from the back so if you let me do my job, we'd get along just fine.

I wouldn't try super hard to make friends on the team, but if someone has to have someone else to listen to them vent I'd give them air time just so they could finish up and leave me alone. Even I know being completely stand off-ish with people you have to be on an eye-to-eye basis every single day is generally a Bad Idea. The battlefield does that to some people (me)... Giving them (or just me) a bad mood and all.

Mission profile: Cover / suppressive fire, attack support (e.g. taking out gun turrets and field scanners)

Is it wrong if I pick something that isn't from an anime?

This is me more as a story than than a mecha fan, but I'd like to take Shinji's place in Neon Genesis Evangelion and see what things I'd do differently as a person within the story. I think we all have ideas about how the story could've been more badass "if only Shinji had done X instead of Y" but I'm curious if I'd actually have the balls to make that difference.

So my answer would be Eva Unit 01 as my younger high school self.

(Get on that, future VR visual novels).

I want to be a Mobile Suit pilot.
SYSTEM ∀-99 ∀ Gundam or XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero would be my top choice.
