I am also going to vent this out of my system for better or worse right now, I am not a fan of Gainax (I hate EVA. They're giant meat bags! With armor! Not mecha! No, I don't care what Super Robot Taisen says about this! I gave away my EVA collection to a friend because I didn't want it sharing shelf space with Gundam and Zone of the Enders of all things! And I don't even want to touch Escaflowne with a Longinus Lance capable of pinning a red mecha to the ground!).

All this being said, you're more or less spot on like Bonn-o-Tron.

On another note, to Darkwolf, I'm rather certain you have neither the resources or perhaps even desire to watch much anime, but for the type of pilot you describe I can't think of a better anime than Full Metal Panic! (and FMP? FUMOFFU & FMP! TSR). Well, perhaps I can, but Sousuke Sagara is the best.

Final note to anyone who doesn't watch anime: It's a dirty habit and your feelings are justified, please look with pity and not disdain on those of us discussing the frivolities of cartoons. I am deeply sorry to have wasted your very limited time upon this earth reading both the above and this disclaimer.

A great style guide for a mecha pilot would have to be Hamtaro.
Just remember to give him a sunflower seed before the battle begins and he is unstopable. Well you can't stop him from talking anyway.

Correct. I haven't watch any anime in over five years. I've spent those five years watching SciFi/History/Discover channel(s) and TruTV and blowing sh*t up in videogames. Recently, it's moved mostly to blowing sh*t up, but you get the idea.

Full Metal Panic is definitely worth a look if you like Mechs or Mecha. The show is about 1/3 Highschool Hijinx Comedy and 2/3 Badass Mercenary Mech Piloting. And in a few cases both at the same time.

That's right! This forum is about simulated hypermasculine posturing between tiny plastic figurines designed for eight-year-olds, not this frivolous cartoon-inspired nerdery.

I think that about sums up what we've been talking about all this time.
