    Pleasantly surprised at: Ingram
    Unpleasantly surprised at: Big O, Shin Getter

    Also Zeorymer almost won, Get your act together, Getter fans.

    • Matt Wells said

      What can I say, the trolls hated us ALMOST enough to kick us out of the running. Almost. How can some people have seen Zeoryemr yet never even HEARD of Getter Robo? It boggles the mind.

      • drmchsr0 said

        The only reason Getter won is so that everyone can drink your salty, salty tears when it gets booted out in a later stage.

      • Matt Wells said

        I’m okay with this. So long as it loses to Gurren Lagann.

      • JoeQ said

        THE WORTHY:
        Shin Getter Robo
        Black Getter
        Mazinger Z (RIP ;_;)
        THE KING OF BRAVES Gao Gai Gar
        Gunbuster
        Gurren Lagann
        Mazinkaiser SKL
        Scopedog
        Giant Robo
        Zaku II
        VF-1
        Eva-01

        Shin Getter all the way, but as long as victor is one of these guys I’ll be okay with it (yes, even the mommybot).

  10. ces06 said

    1. DRILL TO THE FACE

    2. Sonofa….

    3. WHERE IS YOUR SINGING GOD NOW?

    4. WE BELIEVED IN THE SIGN OF ZETA

    5. WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW, HEAVENFAGS? OH WAIT, THERE IS NO GOD, JUST THE GETTER EMPEROR.

    6. KIDS THESE DAYS NEVER APPRECIATE ALL THE HARDWORKING SALARYMEN, NO WONDER ALL WE GET THESE DAYS ARE MOEBLOBS

    7. It was a tough matchup from the start, but WTH? Eitherway…

    8. WORRY NOT FOR SKL SHALL AVENGE THE MAZIN LEGACY

  11. Caraniel said

    1. All is right with the world
    2. What is this shit!?
    3. WTF!?
    4. Predictable
    5. Didn’t care either way
    6. Excellent~
    7. The only acceptable outcome
    8. I would have preferred The Delphine, but a Mazinkaiser SKL is fine too.

    I only scored 4/8 – you all suck.

  12. Earl Gunmetal Grey said

    I’m OK with all of this.

    1. Voted for it.
    2. Voted against, but I’m glad that it won anyway.
    3. For, and I’m glad it survived the first round. Even if it gets kicked out later, I’m cool with it.
    4. For – spider mecha in general don’t do it for me. Even though I don’t like the Zeta much more, it had the edge in this one.
    5. For. Luck of the draw I guess, but they’re pretty even in terms of world-busting power – and out of the two of them, Getter’s less bulky, has a more streamlined design, and has 100% less affiliation with Lemon People. Even if you ignore the manga version (oh dear GOD ignore it), the only thing I can associate it with from the show is its theme – and as godlike as it is, it’s not enough to earn my vote in this instance.
    6. For. Wasn’t a fan of the show, but the Nirvash is just crazy cool.
    7. For. GOOD TASTE PREVAILS. (Am I snubbing it the right way?)
    8. Against, but I can deal.

    BONUS ROUND: For. I mean, I voted against it in the actual round, but at least the mech is an actual part of the show. I mean, I don’t know how I’d react if any of the other shows won this one.

  13. Matt Wells said

    Well, three out of four ain’t bad. I’m angry that the Messiah made it through. Why the hell should it when the VASTLY superior Durandal is waiting to soar on the Colonies Side?

    SUCK IT GETTER HATERS. Now all we have to do is… beat the Nirvash. 😡

    Fuuuuuuuccckkkk… We are so screwed. Fuckin’ Kawamori fags…

  16. reidjou4342 said

    1. Only a moron would have predicted any other outcome. Who the hell did you think was going to win?!
    2. I can’t say I voted for Big O, but I’m not sad it won this round, seeing as Exia is not my favorite swords-only Gundam, nor is it my favorite MS from Gundam 00.
    3. You people who voted for that one-eared rabit thing named after a cat are clearly idiots. This competition is obviously rigged from the start when a pig robot beats the Happy Evangelion robot. F*CK DA POLICE!!!
    4. Hey, what can I say? More people wanted to have a pure time than to gawk at some preteen bee-hatches and their silly non-robot. Zeta’s gonna violate ya.
    5. Sh_n G_tt_r’s victory is inviolable. All who vote against it, please come to your senses now while you still have a chance. You may yet be redeemed!
    6. Surfin’ yeah hippy-robot yeaaaaaaaah
    7. Who would have guessed that those degenerate Soviet slobs would make a jet that inspired such a good-looking variable fighter?!
    8. THE GODS MADE HEAVY METAL AND IT’S NEVER GONNA DIE.

  17. drmchsr0 said

    1. Oh ARX-7, the only reason you lost was because Tessa was not riding it.
    2. CAST IN THE NAME OF GOD, YE WORTHY
    3. BLUE-COLLAR JUSTICE
    4. The only thing worse than a shitty VF ripoff is the VF-25.
    5. Getterfags, we will drink your tears. It will be glorious. Also yeah, Zeorymer sucks.
    6. BUT NIRVASH, YOU ARE IN EUREKA 7 AO
    7. The Durandal and the VF-19 had way more character. Also the YF-19 can punch things.
    8. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH

  18. Turambar said

    1. Fuck yes.
    2. Fuck yes.
    3. Fuck yes.
    4. Fuck yes.
    5. Go revel in your pity win.
    6. Fuck yes.
    7. Fuck yes.
    8. Stupid metal.

    So, we on a hiatus or something?

  21. Just glad to see Type 0 & Zeta move on. We’ll get ’em this year!
