Sai Mecha 2012 Round 3 – MidGAR Finals

June 24, 2012

This is it, mecha fans! ExecutiveOtaku here at the Sai Mecha Arena for the final round of MidGAR matches. From this round will come the four champions of MidGAR that will mix it up with the gods of GARhalla in the chaos of the RaGARok round. Just a reminder, RaGARok will feature a new bracket, randomly determined and comprised of whoever wins this round plus last year’s Final Four: the Evangelion UNIT 01, MS-06 Zaku II, YF/VF-19 Excalibur, and the VF-1 Valkyrie. This round, the eight mecha that have come forth from the Earth and Colonies Sides will compete for the right to enter into the final cataclysm. So lets get to it, mecha fans! Here’s Ghostlightning with the pre-game coverage.

It comes down on what you value in a robot:

1st Battle:

Ancient super robot technology left by aliens, combining and escalating versions, mysterious and limitless power; vs. near future real-robot technology capable transforming, and of using mysterious powers. It’s spiral energy vs. the will of dead people. It’s drills and sunglasses vs. beam sabers and big lasers. It’s Gurren Lagann vs. Z Gundam.

2nd Battle:

Ancient alien first of its kind sentient transforming surfer robot with mystical powers and sentience but may not be initially intended as a combat unit vs. near future bleeding edge paramilitary grade transforming variable robot built only for versatility in combat missions. It’s robot surfer that turns into car and then into aircraft vs. robot special infantry that turns into a fighter/bomber and then into a VTOL Gunship. It’s the Nirvash Type Zero vs. the VF-25 Messiah.

3rd Battle:

Ancient archaeological find doomsday robot that fights awkwardly due to primitive context, and yet caused prior apocalypse due to near limitless power (also lobs nukes like grenades) vs. Urban combat optimized ground-based mobile suit that also uses archaic weaponry but never awkwardly due to cutting edge context of warfare it fought in. It’s Gundam vs. Zeon MS all over again. It’s the Turn A Gundam vs. the Gouf Custom.

4th Battle:

Cutting edge united humanity ultimate project designed anti-alien swarm super robot vs. adapted technology best-in-class remote beam weapon package one vs. many real robot. It’s the combining giant savior of humanity vs. the Space Terrible Monster Crowd vs. the Devil of Funnels scourge of grunt units. It’s the Gunbuster vs. the Kshatriya.

    1. GO BACK TO THE WOMEN GUNDAM BOY! GL HAS INHERITED THE WILL OF THE GETTER RAYS FOR GREAT JUSTICE!
    2. Nirvash. It’s a Super Robot VS. the Most Overated Valkyrie ever, no contest. Go Kawamori fags!/Fuck you Kawamori fags!
    3. “THIS A BLUE ZAKU BOY, BLUE ZAKU!” Turn A hands down, because the only good Zeke is a dead one.
    4. HOMING RAZEEERR and BUSSSTTTEEERRR… SHIELDOOH make your puny funnel spamming irrelevant. Go Team Gainax!

  6. Hmmmmm choosing between Zeta Gundam and Gurren Lagann is difficult.
    Nirvash (I don’t really like that VF)
    Turn A
    My dad’s dream and my mom’s love.

  7. Kuro said

    Team Gainax
    Nirvash
    Turn A.

    Axman gets my vote.

    1. Strike me down, but GL didn’t do anything for me that other super robot shows didn’t do better. So there. I’m ready to go beyond the time with you, ZETA GUNDAM!!!!!
    2. You’re kidding, right? VF-25 Messiah. Nirvash is ugly and it really does have the most irrelevant triple-changing of any triple-changing robot.
    3. Turn A Gundam is all of Gundam.
    4. Psssssssh puh-lease. Clone b!tch3s don’t know about this BUSSUTAH COOOOOOOOORAIDAH or this SUUUUUPAH! INAZUMA! KIIIIIIIIIIIIIICKU!!!!!! Gunbuster. FWM.

  9. Reid said

    Oh yeah, and I voted for the Madcat. I had a build in MW4 that was beyond untouchable.

  10. Jexams said

    1. I’m afraid that if I don’t pick the Zeta Gundamu, I won’t see the tears of time sooooo…
    2. Sorry but even if the Nirvash is dumb, it’s the friggin’ Nirvash and fuck yeah Eureka 7. But yeah, mechas with surf boards man.
    3. Couldn’t pick (I’ve seen neither of the respective series)
    4. MARIDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  11. Andaer said

    The drill that will pierce GARhalla!
    It’s sky surfing man!
    Gouf.
    Difficult choice, but this year I’m all for Kshatriya.

  12. JoeQ said

    I see all you fucking gundamfags have resolved to continue to shit all over this miserable excuse for a tournament. May the mommybot feast on your souls and tear your shitty robots to pieces.

    Team Gainax FTW, Sieg Zeon and fuck you, kawamorifags. Also, Timber Wolf.

  13. [...] that’s it for this round. Be sure to vote in MidGAR! Posts You Might LikeMecha Monday: Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach [...]

  14. 1) Gotta go super here, Zeta’s still on my “to watch list”
    2) There is only 1 Messiah
    3) GOUFFFFFFFFFFF, Fulfill your destiny, destroy the Gundam!
    4) The god of Zakus is not amused with funnel spam.

  15. [CC] Amuro_Ray said

    Timberwolf ftw.
    1.) Zeta 2.) VF25 3.) Gouf 4.) Gunbuster

  16. Anya said

    BELIEVING A SIGN OF ZETA!
    The sexy Messiah
    This is no Zaku, boy, NO ZAKU! Fuck that weird mustache!
    To hell with anti-alien super robots, vote for MARIDA CRUZ’S KSHATRIYA!

  17. 1. Gurren Lagann
    2. Nirvash because it’s not a Gundam.
    3. Apparently I cannot escape Gundams, so Gouf Custom (which I’ve actually seen in action).
    4. Gunbuster

    Bonus round: I find the logic of ‘it has an axe’ compelling. Also, I do not wish to get hit with the axe.

    1. Long live the only worthy successor lasting of the Getter legacy. I don’t know why, but I’ve liked the Zeta less after watching the show.

    2. THERE’S NOTHING MORE I’D LIKE TO SEE THAN FOR THE NIRVASH TO CRASH AND BUUUURRRNNNNNNNN. DAI-GUARD AND GETTER, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.

    3. Dammit. The Turn A’s the better mech, but for going this far, one final hurrah for the Gouf.

    4. CHOU INAZUMA KICK
