OH MY GOD IT’S SAI MECHA FINALLY THE FLAMES OF WAR, BURNING METAL, GALACTIC VIOLENCE, AND ALL THE NICE THINGS YOU DEARLY LOVE

image

First off, congratulations to the new entrants! All the organization and bloc voting of the fake oldfags paid off! Not one, but TWO Getter Robos made it to the tournament: Shin Getter Robo (left) and Black Getter (right).

That out of the way, here are some truly painful battles to look forward to:

Mazinger Z vs. VF-25 Messiah

FUCKING HELL. FUCK. FUCK FUCK FUCKITTY FUCK. Why the fuck? It’s the first robot I ever saw animated vs. the perfection of the Variable Fighter (i.e. the perfect piloted mechanical weapon).

Delphine vs. Mazinkaiser SKL

OH GOD DOES IT EVER STOP HURTING? The ultimate jury-rig, field modified found in a hole let’s win a war with this piece of junk machine (sorry Turn A Gundam) vs. Hell on Earth dual piloted God and Devil machine.

NZ-666 Kshatriya vs. YF-29 Durandal

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU WRYYYYYY? It’s the ultimate funnels Mobile Suit (fuck you Nu Gundam) all demonic and beastly vs. the Swept Forward Wings of Farewell.

While it’s pretty easy for me to choose really, it kills me to see such awesome suits that I’d vote for otherwise had they not been bracketed together.

All the rest in round one are pretty easy or otherwise pretty lame. SAI MECHA ROUND ONE IS COMING. SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY (Monday here in the future; aka East Asia).

    Colonies Side >>>>>>> Earth Side

  2. The Shockmaster says:

    You list the Gouf Custom as “MS-06B” but it is no Zaku boy, no Zaku. It’s completely different and its correct model number is MS-07B-3. So as you can see ya dun goufed

  3. -chii- says:

    I too am pained by these awesome match ups but look forward to who will pull through!

  4. animekritik says:

    Damn it. I miss living in the future…

    Mazinger vs Messiah. Didn’t they make a film about this starring Charlton Heston? I remember it being totally epic and awesome.

  5. reidjou4342 says:

    I am shocked that people would nominate Black Getter separately from Shin Getter when we (the people who wanted a Getter Robo entrant in this tournament, not hatemongers like our esteemed Ghostlightning ^.^) really should have tried not to split the vote. Black Getter is cool and all (I nominated it last year before it occurred to me that a Getter Robo could somehow not make it into the bracket, ergo I wised up this year) but Shin Getter, as Matt Wells and others have said, is really the best representation of that series.

    Anyway, on to why I am slightly put-off by the whole thing.

    Here’s why I’m slightly put-off by the whole thing: almost none of my nominations made it into the bracket. Yes, I’m butthurt about this. Really butthurt. Shin Getter, Mazinkaiser SKL, Turn A and RahXephon are all I have to show for my efforts…well, four isn’t too bad I suppose. Mainly I’m just super-ticked that the Sinanju, which had a really great run last year, didn’t make it in, nor did the Genoace, but I guess I should really be surprised because, well, everyone but me hates it despite its obvious virtues.

    Ahem…moving on…

    Decisions That Are Easily Made
    Earth Side:
    1. Gurren Lagann is way cooler than the Arbalest, which might just be the most vanilla thing on the whole list.
    2. RahXephon is a physical god. The Ingraham has a cool head and a giant revolver…that has to be reloaded by the pilot…failure. Abject failure.
    3. Zeta Gundam and the show it comes from are wayyyy classier than that “porn with plot” excuse for a Takeblahblahblahwhatever crap. The idea of the Muv Luv (lolololol stuuuupid name) universe and the “tactical surface fighter” thing is as cool as mecha-series ideas get, but the robots themselves are ugly beyond comprehension…not to mention they’re just “distractions” from the bewbs or vice versa.
    4. Sh_n G_tt_r because, well, duh.
    5. VF-25 Messiah is an easier choice because I have no real love for Mazinger Z, having not grown up enjoying it. Tough break for the granddaddy of piloted robots though. A pretty plane is too much for this aviation nut to pass up on.
    6. DEATH TO ALL BUT METAL. MA-JIIIIIN-KAISAAAAAAAAAAH.

    Colonies Side:
    1. Turn A Gundam because it’s spectacular, not FAAAAAABULOUS like that other…thing.
    2. Giant Robo has got my vote because I already voted for the other Getter Robo entry, and that’s the one that deserves the vote to begin with.
    3. “A man’s worth is determined by his achievements.” Gouf Custom all the way. If SaiPilot is the Cancer Killing SaiMecha, then I KNOW FOR A FACT that the Gurren Mk II was only chosen because of Karen Kozuki’s hawt posterior, and not by any virtue of the robot itself. God Gundam’s superheated hand that shouts for victory is cooler.
    4. GP-04 Dendrobium – does it get any more Katoki than this?! Tachikoma sucks. Get that crap out of here.
    5. Though the Unicorn Gundam is super (I mean really super) cool, the Gunbuster is the God of All Zakus and so it therefore gets the vote.
    6. I haven’t seen Aquarion Evol, but it IS Aquarion, so that means it’s just a shameless Getter Robo imposter with lots of orgasmic screaming thrown in for “good measure.” I think I’ll go for hot-blooded screaming instead and vote for GGG.
    7. Escaflowne is a beautiful thing. I really do like the Scopedog, but Escaflowne is one of my all-time favorites.
    8. Durarararandal has to get the vote this time. What’s really terrible (?) is that there’s the potential for three VFs surviving deep into this tournament, what with the VF-1 being forever enshrined in Garhalla.

    • schneider says:

      Takemikazuchi is not the Muv Luv mech. It’s the spider tank from Sora no Woto.

    • Xard says:

      6. EVOL has much better finishing moves and special attacks though

    • dliessmgg says:

      “1. Turn A Gundam because it’s spectacular, not FAAAAAABULOUS like that other…thing.”
      Do you even have taste?

      “3. “A man’s worth is determined by his achievements.” Gouf Custom all the way. If SaiPilot is the Cancer Killing SaiMecha, then I KNOW FOR A FACT that the Gurren Mk II was only chosen because of Karen Kozuki’s hawt posterior, and not by any virtue of the robot itself. God Gundam’s superheated hand that shouts for victory is cooler.”
      You done goufed.

      “4. GP-04 Dendrobium – does it get any more Katoki than this?! Tachikoma sucks. Get that crap out of here.”
      Tachikoma is the only practical robot, even only that makes it better than your Brimborium.

      “6. I haven’t seen Aquarion Evol, but it IS Aquarion, so that means it’s just a shameless Getter Robo imposter with lots of orgasmic screaming thrown in for “good measure.” I think I’ll go for hot-blooded screaming instead and vote for GGG.”
      GGG doesn’t have a hot spring filled with bananas, your argument is invalid.

    • BUTTHURT? SIT ON BLACK GETTER’S BEAM SICKLE. IT’S HOLDING ONE IN THE PHOTO ABOVE.

      • Matt Wells says:

        BEAM SCYTHE, IMBECILE. AND GETTERS USE TOMAHAWKS BECUASE THEY’RE GREAT FOR DECAPITATIONS. Beam Sickles (and Hammers) were the trademark weapon of Neo-Russia’s champion in the 7th Gundam Fight, Gundam Vodka.

  6. reiseng says:

    So, basically Getters are shit, right? Ok, good. That’s what I thought.

  7. schneider says:

    If Zeorymer wins over Shin Getter Robo, it will be the comedy of the year.

  8. Huh, if I didn’t know any better I would say these pictures of the Getters are actually Gundams … then again it was a while since I last watched Pokemon, and it’s easy getting confused considering how much the show took from Gundam shows in the first place.

    Some tough choices, but the one that is going to tear me apart is going to be Tauburn Vs. Turn A … god why?

    ”WRRRRRY”

    What, did Ghostlightning become a vampire all of the sudden?

  9. Xard says:

    Hmm, I see no Eva-01 here. Will it enter later?

    • The Eva UNIT 01 is in GARhalla, along with the VF-1 Valkyrie, YF/VF-19 Excalibur, and MS-06 Zaku II. The final four from the bracket will be randomly matched up with the GARhalla mecha during the RaGARok round, as per the new rules for this year (see post just before the bracket post on the Sai Mecha site.)

      • Xard says:

        ahh, of course. I derped and read YF-29 accidentally as 19 (which confused me because I thought Garhalla entries came into play only later) which made me think they went in from the start after all

        Hasty glance + tiredness is at fault here. Sorry for bother

  10. whatsht says:

    Aquarion vs GGG, time for gattai.

  11. dliessmgg says:

    Four of my nominees are in! Woo!
    But they’re all on the colonies side! And three of them on the same way to garhalla! Boo! Rigged!

  12. megaroad1 says:

    All sorts of metallic butt are going to be kicked. I hate not being in the future!!

  13. Matt Wells says:

    Comparing Shin to 00 Gundam? Ghost, Ghost, GHOST, please darling! Hellscythe as Black Getter was inspired, but your Troll Fu needs more polishing. Swap in a picture of the Devil Gundam for Shin and you will have achieved perfect trolling.

    I love the smell of Butthurt casual fag tears… they smell like… HAPPINESS. Cautious about the Double Getter scenario, the vote split was something I tried my best to prevent. Ah well, at least we got two Getters in this time! Two bloody Getters!! Now we actually have to survive the first round…

    I know the Getter might not be one of those, what, FIVE F-12 Tomcats planes with arms and legs soldered on, but how could actual humanoid giant robots compete with such an apex of mechanical design? Truly, the Valkyries DESERVE to dominate this (fixed) contest.

    ART THOU ENRAGED GHOSTLIGHTNING? WILLST THOU WEEP LIKE A BABE RIPPED FROM IT’S MOTHER’S TEAT? HAVE AT ME BROTHER!!!

    Some really exciting match-ups this year, it really could go either way. Exia VS. Big O is the one to watch, and GGG may just beat EVOL if enough wannabee nostalgia fags swamp the votes. Giant Robo VS. Black Getter and Dai-Guard VS. Nirvash may just break my poor ol’ heart; it’s like choosing between shooting your kids in the face or burning your mother to death.

    • Reid says:

      This vote split could put our Lord’s plan in jeopardy, but nevertheless we will persevere, trusting that our True Faith will win the day. The Evolution Lord will surely scourge the universe of these putrid imposters. One way or another His will shall be done. Look upon His works, ye mighty, and despair.

      Sorry, dude, but they’re F-14 Tomcats, F-12s. I’ll let that slide JUST THIS ONCE. lol just pulling your leg, homie. I’ll say it again, if Valkyries were just plain old over-technology’d fighter jets with engine nacelles that folded down into legs (like they do in Orguss…), Macross would be the best kind of real robot, but the three-mode thing continues to perplex me. Oh well, some of these misguided fools seem to love them there VFs to the exclusion of all others robots; but let them go before their maker with the knowledge of that un-confessed sin on their consciences. We did our best to show them the ways of the True Faith.

      As to that last dreadful decision, I say: Mom had her chance. She lived a good, long life…but you know you secretly resent her. The kids are the future. Gotta go Nirvash on that one. Besides, we all know what happens to dead moms in mecha series! They get their souls trapped in our Barney the Dinosaur-colored Ultraman not-robots and somehow manage to get more votes than a real real robot for real men fighting for their country’s freedom/persecution of others/spacenoid autocracy/cosmic genocide/whatever.

      • Matt Wells says:

        Well spoken noble brother. We must remain true to the faith in these times of foul heresy. As for the Valkyrie comment I just be trollin’ in the true Sai-Mecha spirit, but I have to admit that I either love certain VF fighter designs or I hate them. Super VF-1? Godly. YF-19? Blander than oatmeal. Sturmvogel II? I would murder my sister to own one of those. VF-25 Messiah? Leaves me colder than a witch’s tit in an iron bra.

        It’s just a major character flaw of mine, I can’t really articulate it any other way. Kind of like how Ghost is utterlky incapable of seeing how awesome Getter Robo is. I’ll still vote for Dai-Guard over the Nirvash because hey, it’s got no chance in hell of winning that round. But I’ve gotta respect my nominations, ya’ know? (But yeah, so long Mom. Bitch had it coming)

        Sorry Robo. You were the robot my inner child always wanted, but this year belongs to the Getter. OH GOD PLEASE DON’T CRY ROBO I STILL LOVE YOU I SWEAR PLEASE
        STOP CRYING OH CHRIST IT’S THE IRON GIANT ALL OVER AGAIN

        By the way dude, did you get my message? I sent you my copy of SRW: OG 2 in the mail yesterday, it should take five working days to reach the States so long as it doesn’t go missing. Not sure how long it’ll take to reach you once it arrives in America, I guess that’s down to Florida postal services or whether US customs decides to detain your package. Fingers crossed it reaches you in record time!

  14. JoeQ says:

    Ugh. I sincerely hope that this isn’t indicative of the level of trolling we can expect from you during the tournament proper.

  15. Turambar says:

    Big O v Exia in the first round. I suspect this is already going to be FINAL STAGE.

    Though, Tachikoma or GP-03. On the one hand, I nominated one of them. On the other hand, I really want moe that is the cancer killing Saimecha to go far in this tourney.

  16. Anya says:

    MESSIAH! KAIZER! KSHATRIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

  17. The gravity of earth make us better experience and give us difficult.. go EARTH SIDE
