I remember once upon a time seeing a Mecha genre anime where the mech pilots had to feed their blood to the machine. It was a darker anime, more like black lagoon then say naruto.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? Did I just dream it up?

Any help would be appreciated. And thanks.

I have not watched many Mecha anime, but I did a quick search for you.

Two Results:

The Vision of Escaflowne (apparently there's a scene in the movie where a pilot fed his blood to the machine)

I saw Eureka 7 mentioned (although replies to that comment was that it was during said scene, the blood was not used to power the mecha).


Not sure how much this helps, but good luck finding the show!



Edit:

Bokurano was the first thing that came to my mind, but the mecha drew from the pilot(s) lifeforce. I don't recall them ever feeding their blood to the mecha; the pilot just simply ceased after each fight.

Did it have space Nazis? If so, I think you're looking for Valvrave the Liberator.

Escaflowne looks about right.

I'll have to give it a watch to see for sure.

Bokurano I instantly recognized so I know I've seen at least part of it, and Valvrave the Liberator was new to me, but looks interesting.

Thanks guys, you're awesome for helping.

That would be Kill la Kill, and the mecha are called "kamui".

Possibly Valvrave the Liberator.

I would also say Valvrave the Liberator is the closest anime that I know that has that description. But as for how old of this mecha anime is, I am unsure...? But I wouldn't say Naruto is consider mecha at all though....
