Daily Awesome Robot Theme 27: Neon Geneis Evangelion

Wow that sure is “Anime”. I have never watched though all of  Neon Geneis Evangelion TV. I have seen some of it, I liked it all right. As it is one of the classics of the medium I will have to go back and watch it all some day. Neon Geneis Evangelion was always kind of just beyond my rader as a starting anime fan I liked my robots gundam and mobile fighting. Though I do know the Eva units are not really “Robots” as it were. They are more like Ultramen. But still they are kinda a staple of robot anime histroy at this point.

Ps: I have at least seen Evangelion 2.22. I really liked that, thought it was great.

PSS: SOOOOO 90’s

Daily Awesome Robot theme 23, 24 and 25: Hikari Sentai Maskman, Visions of Escaflowne and Zoids: Chaotic Century

Okay so I know I’m very late on this and I Hope I wont mess up on some more. But for the 3 or 4 of you reading this I hope you enjoy!

So I dont know much about about a lot of sentai. But a while ago when I showed Vi-an a video of all sentai opening she vagley remembered seeing some of them on TV as a kid. When I asked her tonight If she had anything to say about this one for this post and she said “I dont really remember much. I remember seeing it on tv. The chracters and theme really stand out but I cant remember any scenes” So there ya’ go! Maskman! It must be good.

Okay for these two the shows were kinda picked at random. But when looking for the openings I kept thinking of these songs. Personaly I think that theses two songs represent these shows and what they are about much more then the TV openings. Though I do know the Zoids song IS in fact the opening of the show but its the instrumental version  but I Remebere these songs as some of the most “epic” music in all of anime!

(Don’t worry tomorrow will be back to normal robot themes!)

Daily Giant robot theme 22 and 23: Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion and Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

and

(Sorry for the delay on these it completely slipped my mind yesterday and I was at a friends place last night. Any-who!)

Code Geass… an anime I used to quite like but I find myself liking it less and less every time I think about it. I almost found my self not including it on the list for opening themes I could use. Because the robots don’t matter, they are in no way a part of the plot that couldn’t be filled by something else. I’m not saying all robot shows should just be about the robots. I just don’t think Code Geass is a “mecha” show at all. (Besides, the robot name is not in the title!) Code Geass seems like that show that was put though the committee for creating shows that everyone loves in the mid 2000’s factory about seven or eight times. I don’t know why I used to like it, maybe because coming of of Gundam Seed Destiny I was just looking for anything new with cool robots in it and Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion was at least not as bad as that. (you will have your day on here Destiny, oh you will) Every single character in this show is pretty unlike able they are all act really dumb but the show tells us that they are geniuses. A lot of the plot turns and character moderations make no since . I don’t know, maybe I am missing something. I just don’t like it much at all any more and I doubt I will ever revisit it.

Daily Awesome Robot Theme 20: Mobile Suit Victory Gundam

Ah~ Mobile Suit Victory Gundam- My favourite opening theme for a gundam series and one of the only that I have not seen and also the one I want to see most. I’m very interested in everything about this show and its interesting to think that this is the “darkest” so to speak gundam show. Absolutely love the design of the Victory Gundam (specificity V2 Gundam) and I think it has some of the best chracter designs in all of gundam.

Daily Awesome Robot Theme 19: Fafner in the Azure

Before I say anything, I love this song its really awesome it totally jams with the kinda j-pop I really like. But man oh man, this show. I bought the first dvd of Fafner a very long time ago, when chapters still sold anime dvds and anime dvds were 27$ for 4 episodes. As you may know Gundam SEED is my favourite anime so this show, having the same character designer I really wanted to check this out and the previews for it looked really cool. But when I actually watched the show I was so bored by it SO BORED I could not get into it or care about it at all. I have heard that it’s actually pretty good. I don’t know… I don’t think I will bring my self to ever revisit this series, save the opening.

Daily Awesome Robot Theme: Overman King Gainer

From the man that brought you the Byston Well saga wing and Zambot 3! (and also some little things like Mobile suit Gundam, Zeta, ZZ, Char’s Counter attack, F91,  Victory, and Turn A) Yoshiyuki Tomino! He created this little crazy series and it…sure is something, I’m not quite sure what but it is something. I do like the cheesey song though.  I first saw the Overman King Gainer in the trailer for a ps3 game from Japan Another Century Episode R and he really stands out that is for sure.

Daily Awesome Robot Theme 17: Tetsujin 28-Go

In 1963 the very first giant robot anime ever was created. Tetsujin 28-go! more commonly known as just Tetsujin 28 or Gigantor in the US. There has been many remakes of Tetsujin 28 over these many years. This is the Grand grand father of all giant robot anime, and most anime in general everyone interested in anime should at least know about Tetsujin 28  Though I have never seen the original series it does look awesome. If I ever see those Gigantor dvd Tins at a convention or something I would defiantly snap them up.

PS: Did you know that Akira’s creator Katsuhiro Otomo was heavily influenced by Tetsujin 28? Akira is chock full of little things that pay homage to the big ol’ robot.

Daily Awesome Robot Theme 16: The King of Braves: GaoGaiGar

Watch this one in HD if you can, its worth it.

100% the best giant robot opening theme ever (well maybe Gaogaigar final is a little better but its the same song) This opening can not be beat. It embodies everything cool and fist clenching-awesomeness that comes with super robots. what else can I say? Its GAOGAIGAR!! Live and breath this opening song and you will feel good always.(probably)

Daily Awesome Robot theme 15: Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid

Sorry this is kind of late.

The best and most serious entry in the Full Metal Panic franchise. It not only looks the best but also has the most robot action in it. I do like the Full Metal Panic world and characters. Its not my favourite non gundam mecha universe by any starch of the imagination but I do enjoy it. I really like the main robot or “Arm Slave” Arbalest. I really dig the knife on the face thing that it has there sometimes, its neat.
