While recent years have seen something of a resurgence in the number of mecha anime being produced, sales suggest that the genre has seen better days, at least in terms of its best selling hits.
To be fair, none of those shows are particularly great. I think it has less to do with people losing interest in the genre and more to do with the quality of recent releases being sub par.
What would you say was the last decent mecha anime?
For me it was Gundam Wing SEED and 00, but I bet those probably weren't great sellers, either.
Gundam Unicorn and the Evangelion rebuild.
I'll have to check those out. I'm a huge fan of the Evangelion series, and I'm looking forward to the rebuild. Fancy graphics and all that :)
