So if you're familiar with my tastes, you'll know I'm definitely not a fan of Mecha. Its too technical, war-involved, and unrealistic for my tastes... usually anyways.
However, under the influence of several friends here on A-P, I recently watched Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and have kind of gotten back into the mood of mecha (Thank you Suna and MangaloverAl!). Since this is an extremely rare episode of temporary taste change (i.e. I never watch Mecha unless its mind-blowing epic), I'm taking this chance to see some of the recommended Mecha animes that I've gotten over the past couple years. As of right now, I'm watching Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
For those of you who've seen or is watching Code Geass, you'll know that the story begins with the Britannia invasion of Japan on August 10, 2010 and thus turning it into Area 11. I thought it was funny to point out that I began watching this series on August 9, 2010.
That's really the only reason for this blog post.
