    Ah...screw em.

    That just means more A.C.E., Super Robot Wars, and Armored Core for me.

    HUGE. MOBILE. FORTRESSES.


    Kawamori Shoji
    Credits: Macross, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Gundam 0083, Dangaioh, Patlabor 2, Crusher Joe, Armored Core, Cyber Formula, Escaflowne, Blue Submarine No. 6, Moldiver, Gunhead, Ghost in the Shell (movie), Spring and Chaos

    Kawamori Shoji is not only an uncommonly gifted artist but a director and producer as well. An engineering major in college, he started designing professionally when he was involved with the production staff for Uchu Senkan Yamato and was then hired to design mecha for an episode of Uchu Kaizoku Captain Harlock [Space Pirate Captain Harlock] (1978-79) when he was a sophomore in college. While still a student, Kawamori began work on the Macross TV series (1982-83) not just as a mecha designer but also as creator/director.

    Kawamori may be best known as the designer of the VF-1A Valkyrie from Macross. It and other designs have established him as a (perhaps the) master of transforming mecha. He’s also known for designing the RX-78 GP01 and RX-78 GP02 from Gundam 0083. Kawamori still works with Studio Nue on certain projects. The majority of his designs are sleek and aerodynamic although he’s quite versatile – many people have trouble identifying Kawamori designs. He is sought after as a mecha designer and has worked on a large variety of projects and continues to produce and direct anime TV series and OAV’s.

    Miyatake Kazutaka
    Credits: Super Dimensions Fortress Macross, Macross: Do You Remember Love (movie), Super Dimensions Century Orguss, Aura Battler Dunbine, Crusher Joe OAV’s, Angel Links, Gunbuster, Dirty Pair Flash, Dirty Pair: Project Eden, Dirty Pair: Flight 005 Conspiracy, Macross 7, Macross Flash Back 2012, Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross Zero, Mai-Hime, MD Geist II: Death Force, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, RahXephon, Sousei no Aquarion, Starship Troopers OAV, Submarine 707R

    Miyatake Kazutaka seems to be the most easily overlooked man in mecha design despite being a prolific artist. His early work includes a large number of the mecha from Aura Battler Dunbine and most of the mecha/starships from Super Dimensions Fortress Macross. He has displayed a versatile style and attention to detail that is impressive to behold. He has been described as the silent backbone of Studio Nue.


    Kobayashi Makoto

    Credits: Z Gundam, Gundam ZZ, Dragon’s Heaven, AS Wars, Venus Wars (OAV), Gravion (production design), Last Exile (production design), Giant Robo (conceptual design)

    Kobayashi worked on Z Gundam and Gundam ZZ producing some excellent designs like the Bound Doc and Marasai. His high degree of detail on both mobile suit inner mechanics and space ships showcases his skills. Kobayashi is also an expert model builder. His models and dioramas have been featured in the pages of Hobby Japan many times.

    The last AC game on 360 I felt totally shit all over the franchise. Hopefully this can bring me back, I've been playing since AC 1 on PSX.

    Gundam games too get shit rating, but I own and play all of them. I should re-rent AC on xbox, give it another chance.

    I want online VS arena, and coop missions all with the intense mech customization I love.
