So, I just finished Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still, and I thought it was okay, I guess? I know it's pretty well-regarded around here, and I'm not saying it's bad, but what exactly makes it so good that everyone treats it like one of the greatest anime out there?
It certainly had some amazing moments, and the animaton and soundtrack were fantastic. But it just felt sort of like a big flashy ball of nothing to me. Did I screw myself by not reading everything Yokoyama, or something?
I wanted to like it because I'm a pretty big lover of all things Imagawa, but I just can't help but feel pretty ambivalent towards it. So, I'm genuinely curious. Tell me why you love Giant Robo so much, /m/.

Is /m/ aware that Marvel is putting out an ongoing mecha series about robots and virtual reality? It's nothing to write home about, but it's interesting enough.
I will storytime the 6 issues so far. The premise is what follows
>enter classic Avenger Hank Pym, the one who discovered size-changing particles by which he can shrink or expand (that's why he was Ant-Man and Giant-Man)
>he also created the robot Ultron, who then became a self-evolving, human-hating killing machine
>recently (via an event involving timetravel), Ultron was stopped once and for all through an infective cyber-virus
>said virus became sentient and created a whole new world of AI, some good, some evil, both willing to ensure their survival
Even if you're not big on western comic books, I suggest to bear with this, there's a lot of references to classic /m/echa and neat designs.
