Japanese Fans Rank Top 10 Gundam, non-Gundam Robot Anime

This week Japanese anime news site Anime Anime held a cool double poll: in one, it asked its readers to choose their favorite Gundam series, and in the other, their favorite non-Gundamrobot series.

Now, the question Anime Anime specifically asked was “what robot anime heats up your chest?” which we might translate as “gets you riled up” or “puts a fire in your belly,” so keep in mind this list isn’t necessarily best, but most exciting.

But enough talk: have at it.

Here’s an interesting fact: Canadian voice actors, Matt Hill and Samuel Vincent, arguably most famous amongst this generation for voicing the respective characters of Ed and Double D in Ed, Edd n’ Eddy, also voiced rival characters Kira Yamato and Athrun Zala from the mecha anime Gundam Seed.

This is impossible to ignore.
