Review : Great, but lacked some important “mecha” parts.
Wether you’re designing your own mecha and want to make them more “realistic,” or just beginning to get into the entire mecha genre; this would be a great book for inspiration.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s even partially interested in giant, walking “death-mobiles.” There’s lots of good ideas for the externals of mecha, and what their functions are.
However, it didn’t earn the fifth star only because it had no information about the cockpit or any of the various power sources that are often talked about in mecha animes or manga comics. And a section on the various parts of a cockpit would have been extremely useful.
But on the plus side, it had useful information about joints, weaponry, and arm structure. It even used examples of a crane and compared the movement to a mecha. I also really liked all the different military weaponry displayed. In fact, there’s a good 4 or 5 pages devoted to missile launchers, rifles, machine guns,…0 Likes
