Great stuff BUT there is a mecha thread on >>>/anime/
No mechs, purely space opera but you can't go wrong with the original Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
Gundam F91 has god-tier animation. Gunbuster too, to a lesser extent.
Macross: Do you Remember Love had some great animation. It's a sort of retelling of the SDF Macross TV series, but I'd recommend watching the TV series first because of the story. Hideaki Anno did key animation for both. SDF Macross apparently didn't have the biggest budget as there is a lot of QUALITY and recycled animations.
The animation was the only thing good out of that one. The mini-MS look dumb as hell and the story is lackluster at best.
Redline is insanely good, 7 years of drawing by Madhousehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiFjyqRfkpo
So oldschool they draw their circles as ovals so they're circles for 4:3
Mecha thread right there you idiots.
