It’s day 68 of the 100 Day Anime Challenge guys, and our question of the day is: What is your favorite Mecha Anime? It’s no secret, I think, that my favorite mech series of all time is, and will always be, Gundam Seed, so i’ll give some love to a different show here. One of my other favorites in the Mecha genre, it’s Captain Earth.
Captain Earth grabbed my attention on release for its gorgeous visuals, rousing soundtrack, and interesting story premise. It begins as a typical mecha story, with a young boy being called to pilot a giant experimental mech against alien invaders, but it soon evolves far beyond that, into a tale of friendship, determination, and love. So many mech shows focus on the robots themselves, but Captain Earth puts minimal focus on the mechs, instead choosing to build the characters up.
With an interesting cast of characters, including the villains, and a great plot, Captain Earth is a show everyone should give a watch, if they enjoy Mecha anime. You surely won’t be disappointed. Anyone else got a great mecha anime they’d love for me to watch? Let me know doen int he comments, and I hope to see everyone again tomorrow!
