Darling in the Franxx is a show about children fighting monsters in giant robots, but through its 24 episodes, it undergoes a metamorphosis from teen melodrama with mecha to a galactic-scale conflict. This transition isn’t very smooth, however, and by the finale, Darling feels like a beautifully animated series that…
In Front Mission 3’s 18th battle, I’m on a naval base facing down two giant walking artillery cannons, four Gundam-like mechs, and an apache helicopter.

Iron Golems? Useful when your village faces skeletons or zombies. Not so much when it's the Colossus.
For your viewing pleasure, see how iconic mecha and robots compare. Because sometimes, size does matter.
You have to be really talented to build tiny LEGO mecha that fit right into ordinary dioramas and, as a result, make it all look natural. Robot enthusiast Zi Zy builds small-scale scenes just like that, and on top of it, takes beautiful shots of them.
