Brief Mecha Design Thoughts

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Mecha nowadays are too janky & they lack reasonable refinement.

Yes, Many mecha anime have action figures & this is another reason mecha need to be designed better. Since action figures are physical representations, Ensuring that mecha are designed properly makes for better figures.

A major pet peeve of mine is armor skirts. Not because I’m “sexist”, it’s because armor skirts interfere with mecha hip mobility.

There needs to be a balance between coolness & practicality. It’s tricky to find & retain this balance, But it’s hardly “impossibe”.
