Personally, I liked Gunbuster, Godannar, Gurren-Lagann, and GaoGaiGar the most.

You can't go wrong with any of the works of Go Nagai when it comes to mecha(well, aside from Groizer X). Mazinger Z, Grendizer, Kotetsu Jeeg, Mazinkaiser... They're all awesome.

Second to all Go Nagai, especially in the case of the Mazinkaiser OVAs. Just make sure to brace yourself for the boobs in the beach episode because you can't escape them.

Also, Getter Robo. Just all of it, except Getter Robo Go. If you're looking for something outstandingly awesome, I would go with either Getter Robo: Armageddon or New Getter Robo. Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo was good overall, but not the best for robot action.

If you want a crazy karate man beating the ever loving crap out of dinosaurs with guns, that's different and Ryouma Nagare has something to tell you. With his fists.

You need bracing?

I just noticed no one recommended the sequel to Giant Robo...I take it it's not very good?

EDIT: I guess for clarification I should note that GR: Giant Robo isn't a sequel, but a reimagining of the original manga.

Isn't that one not subbed or something? No idea. I know one of the installments of GGG isn't subbed so maybe I'm mixing it up with that.

After looking around, I see that you're right. I thought it was officially subbed and everything since I found an english trailer and the website is in english, too. Well this sucks, I was really planning on watching that one sometime soon.

Gunbuster and GaoGaiGar are godly. This has probably already been established, but it people always need reminding. Other great super robot shows are Chouju Kishin Dancouga and Mazinkaiser. Anything from Go Nagai, really.

I second these. Dancougar is really deep and interesting for a super robot show, while Mazinkaiser was just really fun to watch.

Dancougar's a bit like Ideon to me in terms of genre bending... definitely kind of mixes in both super/real robot elements so that's pretty awesome. I need to pick it back up myself and finish it, what I've seen so far is definitely pretty solid.
