I'm going to quote this, just so it doesn't get accidentally overlooked (as often happens with the bottom post on a page).

I concur, as well. I'm limited to using my 3DS, and too many pictures (or videos) can cause it to abandon loading a particular page.

In the right hands, it could be great.

The Kid Icarus anime shorts Nintendo uploaded onto Nintendo Video last year were stunning (except for that ugly as heck CGI one).

Famous studios, such as Production I.G., Studio 4Cº, and Bones contributed, I believe (Could be wrong on Bones, but I'm thinking it was them).

Agreed, they were all very nice. I really disliked the CGI one.

It was hard, but I found the opening to the original Mobile Suit Gundam:

I've finished episode 7 of Trigun, liking it a lot. It's the dub though, it's Funimation, but I was wondering what everyone else thought of the dub.

A lot of people (and I include myself) love Trigun's English dub, and can't imagine any other voices as the four leads. Funimation didn't dub the original series, though, they just acquired the rights to it a few years back. I thought they did do a great job with their dub of Trigun: Badlands Rumble; they had to re-cast everybody except Vash, but the new voice actors managed to honor the spirit of the characters and original series while still sounding passably similar to the previous English voice actors.

Oh, and just wait until Nicholas D. Wolfwood starts showing up. My favorite episodes of Trigun almost always tend to be the ones where Wolfwood is prominently involved. He's just such a great foil for Vash, and a fascinating character in his own right.

I talled up all the good mecha shows I have left to watch, then added up all the episodes to see just how much I have left to see. The end muber? 666. Plus 3 movies. I've sold my soul for mecha...

I know it's an american show (but Toei did animate parts of it) but would you consider The Transformers (G1) a mecha?

Anyone know if the new anime, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is any good?

Also, @CanisWolfred
By now I'm sure you've seen more of Valvrave, is it any good?

No. It fits neither classification of Mecha. The giant robots are not pilotable, instead their characters themselves. It also doesn't fit the Real Robot definition (which is I, and a lot of other people, always refer to when talking about "Mecha"), in that they aren't commonplace tools (often used by multiple organizations). It's just a sci-fi action-adventure starring Giant Robots.

I'd consider it among the best this season has to offer. I feel like it's been hitting all the right notes so far. Granted, I'll have to wait until next week before I can really say more...

Um, as I said before: it'll be a long time before I can make an opinion on Valvrave, since like any mecha show, it'll take a while before the story really picks up, usually about 1/3 of the way in. They only release one episode a week, and they're only up to episode 2 of 26, so I'll get back to you in 7 weeks.

I think I'll check out Gargantia before it get too far ahead.

Also, even if yo don't have a full opinion on Valvrave, would you say the first eps were any good?

No. But then again, I can't remember the last time I thought the first few episodes of a mecha show were any good. I guess Code Geass, but that's probably it.
