What's the appeal of mecha? I'm trying to understand them.

Depending on the game it's having weapons and guns and not be a tank or plane. Man and mech as one fighting overwhelming forces. If you don't get it now you never will.

Is like a bigger, better, stronger,faster, more powerful and all in all cooler version of you.
Imagine being a paladin in shining armor in any fantasy RPG.
Now upscale that armor into a running, flying, laser powered, missile packing, sword swinging giant of the finest steel and alloys the world has to offer as you tower majestic above people and even buildings.

I'm kind of fine with western mechs but I find Japanese mecha ridiculous.

Western mechs (like the ones in Battletech) are designs from japan.
And Zaku IIs are sexy beasts, prove me wrong protip you can't
>>
Mechs are a childish remnant of gaming's dark ages and should be completely discarded if gaming is to be respected as an art form.
>>
For gundam in particular it was the human characters and the grand scale conflicts that was drawn to. Giant robots were always cool but it wasnt until I got a MG gunpla set and put it together that I appreciated suit design.

Now im stuck watching ZZ and want to die please tell me it gets better.

Which part are you on? If you're in the beginning it gets better after the 18th episode, I think

Episode 15. Ive heard it picks up so I'll stick it out.
>>
>>390156175
Well shit, I don't blame you at all, the Moon-Moon episodes killed my motivation as well when I was watching ZZ as well but when they get to the Moon it gets better and more serious

If you don't like japanese mecha then you don't like mecha
