Hey, remember when we said feminists want to ban sex bots?
It's happening, yo.

Hey /m/, I'm working on a report on the mecha genre and I was wondering if you guys could assist me and correct me if I'm wrong.
My report is (obviously) on the mecha genre of anime, touching a bit on its history, attempts at replicating the genre in the west, and the division between the real and super robot genres.
I have down that the origins of mecha in anime trace back to Tetsujin 28/Gigantor, though mecha can be seen traced back to Tokusatsu tv series prior to its inclusion in anime. I've also included that Mazinger Z set up the tropes for much of the genre and pioneered the super robot genre.
In terms of attempts to replicate the mecha genre in the west, I've included Megas XLR, Symbiotic Titan, Pacific Rim and Voltron, with the latter being cited as the West's largest commercial success in mecha.
Anything else of note I should include?
