Your Completely Biased Sai Mecha Elite Eight Voting Guide and Image Dump

Make a contract with me and become a true follower of the mecha Way.

-or- The Declaration of Team Real Robot.

So I’ve set up and have been running Sai Mecha, the Super Dimensional Robot Tournament, for a bit now and we’ve arrived at the Elite Eight portion of the tournament. Up until now I’ve mostly kept my opinions of the contestants to myself since I’m running the tournament. Figured it would be better to appear unbiased in public. However, for this post I’ll be taking off my Sai Mecha organizer hat and posting as my usual fan and blogger self. The stakes are high, only a few votes could make the difference, and you the voter must be fully aware of your options at this crucial juncture in the tournament.


This will not be a warm moment of kindness between enemies.

Simply put, at this phase of the tournament we are faced with a great crisis. The field has narrowed down to worthy and popular contestants. But this is a mecha tournament, a contest for mecha, those vehicles that are the confluence of amazing technical design and sheer awesome. Mecha comes from the root word “mechanical”, but we have some contestants, nay, enemies, in the running that seem to think of the soul of mecha as an afterthought. Some are worse offenders than others. But you must be on your guard for they are a fifth column, their many fanboys are causing them to be…wait for it…the cancer that is killing Sai Mecha! Citizens! Rally beneath the banner of Real Robots! For they are not only real in the sense of realistic but real in that they are true to the soul of mecha!

Match 1 – Evangelion UNIT 01 vs Tachikoma

The Major loves her Tachikoma and you should too. You wouldn’t want to make the Tachikoma sad/the Major angry, now would you?

The choice is obvious here. The Eva Unit 01 is just a skyscraper-tall monument to the Oedipal Complex. As Ghostlightning put it during Round 1: “[if you vote for it]…you want to hump your mother… in front of your dad… who’ll probably get off on it.” It claims to be ‘real’ by having a time limit and such, but really the mecha and the show just did what it wanted later anyway. Rampaging on its own, roaring, enabling Shinji of all people to save the world? Pffff, that’s a plot device not a mecha.

Oh yeah, and the Eva UNIT 01 was the one that knocked out the beautiful, functional VF-25 in the first round. Begin your Two Minutes Hate.


The voices of Sheryl, Alto-hime, and even Ranka cry out for blood and vengeance! Honor their names by voting for the Tachikoma! For one, it’s a realistic mecha design with tons of functionality. And it’s operated by/with a cool cast of ADULTS instead of a whiny-ass, whimpering little…SHINJI! And it’s moe to boot! The Tachikoma’s AI grows over time and the cheery little voices of these deadly killing machines will always bring a smile to your face. HEY MOE FANS! Love your happy, moe shows? Hate how the ‘serious business’ fans, many of them mecha fans, keep criticizing, nay!, PERSECUTING your favorite Eroge/Light Novel Adaptation #46531? Come to Sai Mecha and ruin their day with the power of MECHA MOE!

I rest my case.

Match 2 – VF-1 Valkyrie vs Sinanju

Are you going to vote for Fat Char’s fat mobile suit, or are you going to vote for the classic and revolutionary icon of the mecha genre?

A somewhat more worthy, but equally WRONG, opponent, the Sinanju is like it’s owner: fat. Fatty fat fat. Seriously, this thing needs to join Jimmy Tango’s Fatbusters. As does its owner. Maybe it’s the detestable Zeke life of idle luxury in gilded mansions in preparation for more mass murder colony drops, all while decrying the supposed corruption of the Federation. Vote for the good guys, vote for humanity, vote for the VF-1 Valkyrie! This thing legitimately saved humanity through the brave actions of its pilots. Instead of offering a false and autocratic hope of somehow saving humanity by enslaving it to the Zabis and their perverse Newtype fanaticism. The VF-1 is sleek and more functional than all the designs of Gundam Unicorn COMBINED. You can tell real thought went into it instead of creating a new model every five minutes to sell more toys. And the toys are better anyway!

VF-1 pilots: hang out with idols, work with hot bridge bunnies, get snazzy uniforms, save humanity. Sinanju’s pilot: lives in a shitty hollowed-out asteroid. With a subordinate guy who wants to hump you all day and probably writes bad BL fanfics about it all night.

This thing fire more missiles in one salvo than all the funnels that have ever existed, COMBINED. It has a cannon pod that detaches and HAS A SLING for humanoid-form combat. It makes its pilot as big as a race of SPACE GIANTS. It doesn’t need a red paint job to be 3x faster than its enemies. And it has a two-seater version JUST SO YOU CAN GO ON DATES WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND. Finally, songs written by attractive idols about Valkyrie pilots: 1. Songs written by attractive idols about Sinanju pilots: 0. I think the choice is obvious. Ghostlightning also made a much more intellectual argument for it, if that’s your thing.

Match 3 – Zaku II vs Escaflowne


I think by now you’re noticing a pattern. A pattern of awesome. The Zaku II is one of the most real of real robots. It’s solid, functional, adaptable, and has a long service record. While it was unfortunately the tool of the vile Zekes, it has amassed such a reputation that it deserves consideration beyond its heritage. Very few units have shown the sort of longevity that the Zaku II has. It manages to look cool and be effective. From 0079 right through to Operation Stardust the Zaku II was there, in the thick of the fight. Now, I don’t know much about the Escaflowne, but I’m damned sure that such a pretty looking, ornamental design isn’t down in the mud with the Zaku II. The Escaflowne represents all that is outdated, and rightly so, in warfare. Do you want some knight, that turns into a dragon, of all things, ruling over you, forcing you to live a life of SERFDOM and hand over the majority of your crops so he can trade you away to another baron? Help, help, you’re being repressed! Or do you want to stick it to the nobility, take up your mass produced weapon, join your comrades, and seize your destiny with your own two bloody hands?! VOTE ZAKU II!

A vote for the Zaku II is a vote for the unit Asuna trained in, and by extension, a vote for her. Real robots have all the best women anyway (more on this later.)

Match 4 – YF-19 vs Gurren Lagann

It’s so damned sweet that I didn’t even need to get a different image than the voting pic for it.

This, like the fight versus Purple Oedipus, is a key match. Good taste and true mecha spirit will stand or fall on this battlefield. Yeah, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann was a fun show. Really fun. But can you take that thing seriously as mecha? And when it’s up against arguably the most beautiful Valkyrie of them all? The Gurren Lagann just keeps growing by throwing more bits and pieces on it like it’s trying to get to 37 pieces of flair or something. This isn’t Chotchkie’s. THIS. IS. SAIMECHA! The YF-19 continues the proud Macross tradition of being both functional, sleek, and badass. It has its Itano Circus of missile tucked away in aerodynamic internal bays, swept forward wings, a Pinpoint Barrier System that it can use for mini-Daedalus Attacks, and has a torso that would make an Armored Core proud. The Gurren Lagann? A pair of oversized sunglasses, a torso that looks like Frylock, and infinite repetitions of the same drill punch. Boooring.

And it has two seats so you can rescue the girl you love. And when you save her she won’t just fade away at the wedding. TOO SOON?

The YF-19 is something you can actually imagine existing. The Gurren Lagann has to bend and break reality just to exist. And it’s still nowhere near as sexy. Why break down reality when you can be master of it?

On Real vs Super Robots

Being of good taste and unquestioned intellect, I’m sure by now that you’re thoroughly convinced to vote for the real robots in this Elite Eight round. But just so you have more rhetorical ammunition to help lead others to the True Path, I’ve saved my most powerful and intellectual point for last. REAL ROBOT SHOWS HAVE BETTER GIRLS. Stripper outfit Yoko? Please. Asuka? Only perverts are interested in her, and we all know what exactly they’re interested in. Report to the bridge of the Macross. Then head to Frontier’s main island for the Sheryl Nome concert with vampiric selfcest holograms. After that, Christina Mackenzie will be pleased to give you a tour of Side 6. Real Robot has Real Women.

Need I say more?

[I really, really loved Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Evangelion. If I made a top 20 anime, they’d be in it, likely both in the top 10. But it’s fun to get into the ruthless spirit of Sai Mecha here, outside my capacity as the organizer. Rest assured that I’ll continue to remain impartial in the actual running of the tournament, but here, on T.H.A.T., I’m as biased as they come!]

VOTE NOW! Round 3 polls are open until 23:59 EST on14 May (Saturday.)

    I mean.

    The VF-25 is riding on the coattails of the VF-1. It’s just a sleeker, updated version OF THE SAME MODEL. Also if you don’t vote the VF-1 you will be brained by pineapples and get tossed like a salad. In that order. And then blamed for the deaths of badass fictional pilots.

    VF-19: HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THE FIRE BOMBER VARIAN- Oh wait, there’s your ridiculousness there.

    How can you not like the Zaku II I mean it is an actual character, has done badass things like go up against a GUNDAM with nothing but a massive Heat Hawk, a single-shot bazooka and has served in BOTH Earth and Space also in command of A BAO QU. (Hideko Owada’s Gundam-san books has this series of comics called Captain Zaku, who is totally badass while maintaining an everyman personality)

    About that red VF-1: It doesn’t need to go faster. IT WILL RIP YOU A NEW A-HOLE.

    I mean

    The Tachikoma!?! Really? I’m ashamed of you. The thing isn’t even a mecha. A mecha means a giant robot. For one, that spider tank isn’t giant. Also, isn’t the prerequisite for a giant robot that they have to be human shaped? With two legs and two arms and something resembling a head? The Tachikoma is a spider. I friggen’ spider I say! Finally, the Sai Mecha is an alternative for those of us who have little interest in its moe equivalent, and yet here are my brethren voting for the single moe machine in this entire contest?

    Meanwhile, the EVA Unit 01 is the ultimate mecha. It’s beautifully designed monstrosity that towers less due to its height and more its sheer frightening power. Yet it is also a fatally flawed machine, like all good mecha should be. It needs to be plugged in. It’s a bitch t pilot properly, with lots of different coloured bars moving about to represent that. The sheer overwhelming power of it drove its pilot to madness. Finally, if a hoard of Tachikoma tried to take on the Unit 01, it would eat them. Where’s your moe spider tank now bitches?

    Your good taste in women continues to impress me.

    Your opinions about robots OTOH are horribly misguided. EVERYONE knows that Super Robots are the TRUE soul of mecha and though they might do their best (not that they even try most of the time), no ‘real’ robot show can hide the fact that at the core of their being lies the very spirit of Mazinger Z! ‘REAL’ ROBOT DELUSION IS THE CANCER THAT IS KILLING SAI MECHA!

    Also, voting for Zaku II makes you a NAZI. FACT

      In all actuality, Hinagiku as Meer Campbell beats Murrue any day, but that’s crossover territory.

      But yes, Murrue pretty much beats all of the CE females. EXCEPT AISHA, WHO DIED FOR LOVE.

  9. Posted May 12, 2011 at 5:47 am | Permalink

    I am outraged. You’re grossly misrepresenting Real Robot Girls with your picks. Sure, you have the Misa, Chris Mackenzie and Sheryl, but let’s not forget the shit pilots, batshit insane dumb aces, and THE WORST KIND OF WOMEN–Real Robot Girls also contain the concentrated fail of Fa Yuiry, Katejina Loos, and Nina Purpleton!

    It’s not really a fair fight too since Super Robot Girls are much fewer, and don’t have a better ratio of good vs bad/forgettable. But I’ll have you know that every girl in Godannar is Jawsome, despite what people might think about the show if they haven’t seen it. Asuna Elmarit is basically Noriko from Gunbuster with 90% less badassitude. Rant on Yoko’s choice of clothes all you want, but she’s still extremely competent.

    I’m with you on the Tachikoma. I don’t think anything with that kind of ugly teeth could be considered pretty or beautiful, and I never really loved the Evas. They don’t look robots to me!

    As for Zaku and Escaflowne. Escaflowne fought against an oppressive nation! Escaflowne will fight against Zeon, and for freedom! It’s the poor Zaku mooks that are conscripted into service without a clear cause to fight for!

    I don’t think the VF-1 is sleek. Functional, yes, but when you say sleek, I think of newer Variable Fighters. ReZEL is sleeker, even if it has legs sticking out.

    YF-19 is a boring choice. Yeah, it’s a great mech, I get it. But Gurren Lagann gives better publicity to the tournament! It’s actually a groundbreaking design, too–the proportions are very human-like, it doesn’t look like a blocky toy, and its flamboyance doesn’t go too far into FABULOUS territory.

      “Rant on Yoko’s choice of clothes all you want, but she’s still extremely competent.”

      Not to mention extremely hot when cosplaying as Yomiko!

      Humorously enough Noriko started out as a crappy real robot pilot before graduating into a badass Super Robot pilot. Nono is still my favorite though.

      Re: Godannar, actually worth watching? I’ve been passing that one (plus Gravion, Aquarion and Dancougar Nova) because of the boobs and camel toe.

      • Matt Wells

        Godannar is a solid if somewhat generic show. If you’re looking for a watchable series with old school mecha grappling and finishing moves in a modern context, you won’t be dissapointed. Like you note, the only thing that may really irritate is the unrelenting torrent of fanservice, but the actual plot isn’t bad. Lots of cool cameos by 70’s mecha seiyuus, and awesome classic mecha style opening songs. Akira Kushida and Ichiro Mizuki vocals on the Openings!

        The tone the show goes for can rather acurately be summed up in this trailer. If you like the trailer, you’ll probably like the series. Its one of those rare beasts where the style of the show IS its substance. I haven’t seen the newer shows you mentioned, but I’ve heard mixed reactions.

        Godannar is the best show out of all the ones you mentioned.

        Also throwing it out here: A lot of the GaoGaiGar staff worked on it.

      Posted May 12, 2011 at 9:01 am | Permalink

      Glad to see I’m not the only one who thinks the VY-19 is an uninspiring design. Its solid and likeable yes, but its so BLAAAAAND, it invokes nothing but apathy in me. And while Super robot gals may fall far more heavily on the suck side than the awesome, Super Robot shows easily have the sexiest Villainesses.

      Real robot evil chicks? Cima and Katejina Loos. Bleh. Super robot evil chicks? Aidane the Elegant, and Tsubasa Nishikori (though she’s more of an anti-hero). Mrowww! And awesome female Super robot pilots are so much better than female awesome real pilots its not even funny.

      • Posted May 12, 2011 at 10:02 am | Permalink

        Sarah Kodama beats all female pilots, supers or otherwise. Except maybe Aisha and LALAH SUNE. (BOTH DIED FOR LOVE SO SHUT UP FAGGOTS)

        Adiane is TECHNICALLY a scorpion. YOU FURRY.

        And Baron Ashura is the best female villain (even though Ashura is technically half-man hanf-woman.) ever. Himika-sama simply CANNOT hold a candle to Baron Ashura.

        • Matt Wells
          Posted May 12, 2011 at 1:56 pm | Permalink

          Isn’t it weird that for the two episodes she appeared in, Ashura’s all female self was insanely hot? Really, why is it when Uncle Go takes the time to design feamle characters over the age of 16, they’re either crazy hot psychos, or butch lesbians? And Queen Himika is just an ancient sorcerer version of Dr. Hell with nicer tits. The only Go Nagai villain that can hold a candle to Ashura is Brocken, and he’s a decapitated robo-zombie Nazi.

          And Adiane is only 20% scorpion! The other 80% is all Tsundere for the love of creepy ape men, which is admittedly not much better.

          Lalah Sune has the misfortune of being the only Indian person in anime, and being the first in the grand Zeonic tradition of using former child prostitutes as the pilots of their psychic death machines. I’m not sure it counts as dying for love when your lightsabered in halve by the two guys vying for your affections lol.

            I read about half of Char’s Deleted Affair, and all I took away from it was that young Haman was like a proto-Quess Parya. And Lalah is still a two-timing hussy having psychic transcidental mind sex with the enemy!

            Overmen are barely even Real Robots, especially when your favoured one drives a mech that stretches like rubber. ALSO NORIKO AND ALLENBY RENDER YOUR REAL PILOT ARGUMENT INVALID. THEY DON’T EMO OUT WHEN THEY DISCOVER THEY’VE BEEN KILLING PEOPLE ALL ALONG.

      You thought flinging galazies was nuts? The Fire Bomber YF-19 Variants shot MUSIIC BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAMS, MUSIC BARRIERS, MUSIC ERRYTHING. It even had SPEAKER ATTACHMENTS. The YF-19 Fire could fuckin’ Tank ENTIRE GALAXIES THROWN AT IT, ITANO-CIRSUS-STYLE and SURVIVE. (albeit with a lot of maintenance in the downtime, BUT STILL.)

      BUT WHAT ABOUT RUNE ZO- no wait, she’s pretty bro.

      No wait, Mylene is pretty badass too (MACROSS 7 IS SUPER ROBOT MACROSS)

      Alchemie? Naaaaaah, not a bad pilot herself.

      No wait, most of the female cast of GaoGaiGar aren’t pilots, and KoRyu and Anryu (AND TENRYUJIN) are technically robots….

      Allenby is a great character, so no…

      Ibuki Momoi? No, she’s actually decent, although the corporate job is a soul-sapper…


      Also Misa didn’t pilot a robot. Under technical terms, she is the XO of the SDF Macross, and while she technically has control over the ship when Gloval is on break or is otherwise unable to captain the ship, she’s not actually piloting the ship. Or when it’s in giant robot mode.

        Bah, like I wrote before, trying to separate the pilots from the mecha is bullshit anyway. Awesome pilots make any piece of shit they choose to pilot inherently and irrevocably cool, while emo LOL-pacifistic pansies can make even the coolest metal beasts fail.

        This is taken to it’s logical conclusion by Nono in Diebuster, but also to a lesser degree in Getter Robo, Gurren Lagann, Giant Robo and G Gundam.

        Rubbish! I actually managed to shoot down some enemies with Kushua in OG 1! No, the worst female super robot pilot of all time is clearly Sayaka Yumi! No matter which version of Mazinger it is, she has yet to stop sucking. Canonically speaking, I don’t think she’s ever managed to slay one single monster of the week. BOSS BOROT KICKS MORE ASS THAN SAYAKA.

        The only time her robot was ever able to kill anything was when it was possessed by an evil Mecha-Beast. Then there was the time she emoed out about the loss of her shitty robot and its boob missiles, and she almost drowned in a lake trying to “rescue it”. Not even Shin Mazinger could make Sayaka cool, and that show made Boss’ sidekicks badass! IT MADE SHIRO KABUTO BADASS!

        Though being a robot pilot with a Vagina in the 70’s was like giving Superman a cape lined with Kryptonite. Yay sexism 70’s Japan!

            And said Mecha Beast STILL beat her without breaking a sweat, forcing Kouji to rescue her YET AGAIN. When not even Yasuhiro Imagawa can make you cool, you are a terrible character.

    I see your Kyubeley and raise you a Kyubeley portable type:

    Although I must say, Evangelion is the black sheep of mecha (perhaps the red-headed step-child is a more appropriate metaphor? It certainly has one as a character): too real for supers and too super for reals. To be honest I’ve always seen it more in the real camp – it certainly does the verisimilitude at least as well as the original Mobile Suit Gundam.

      The Evas are cloned from angels, have sentience beyond their pilots, and are powered by the souls of the pilot’s dead mother. If that doesn’t scream super, I don’t know what does. The only “real” elements are the limited power operation times, and that’s solved with the addition of an in-universe perpetual motion machine. I remember a SRW 4 koma joking about whether Evas are reals or supers; it had Amuro and Ryoma coming to blows over it.

    Mission accomplished then, seeing as the VF-1 beat fat Char and the VF-19 pierced the GL with its superdimensional missile spam. Now what is needed is an ALL VF final. Knock that stupid EVA01 out!.
