Bokurano? Might not be that kind of mecha you're looking for.Looks very different as to what I usually watch. Worth looking into. =)
Isn't Macross generally flashier than Gundam?I watched Macross Frontier if that's what you were referring to - I didn't have a huge problem with it.
No mention of Guren Lagann or Full Metal Panic?
Kanazuki no Miko for the yuri and lols
I find mecha shows to be super boring in general.I know a few people that can't stand mecha either. So to each their own.
For FMP if you remove the mechs you get Fumoffu which is still one of the funniest animes to date.
