Some interesting ideas out there tbh...

Personally, I like the RS Project one but we'll see who will win.

Any guess as to why (at least for me) the subtitles are set to French?

I'm sick of memory loss and chuunibyou and the rest also seem very uninspired. I love mecha but all of these are very bland ideas that sound like stories I read/wrote in middle school. Very sad to say I don't care which of these wins..I probably won't watch any. Dean-Drive has the only character I think I would remotely like though.

I'd cast my vote for Dean Drive fox hound. The mecha look awesome and Zone of the Ender-ish (just missing the cock-pits).

I do think Star Storks has an interesting premise, though, and shows with sentient robots are in short supply these days.

Day Break Dean-Drive and deadendsparks as well as RS Project (a little bit) look the most interesting to me compared to the other ones.

^ this.
Also, they're all missing the most important feature of mecha series - slashable bishounen frenemy leads.

(...sincerely, that one Code Geass obsessed person.)

Except the first one (I find the plot not quite innovative), I do see the other 4 have some interesting concept. Good luck to whoever win this contest.

(clap) I'm actually inspired.

And yay girl leads! Plenty of sci-fi cliches such as amnesia and bastard aliens coming from the sky ^;^;

The 1st got my attention cause of that plot. English subs would help get more likes.

Star Storks or Dean Drive would be my pick. Least favorite is Enthusiast! because mech racing just reminds me of IGPX which I hated. Robot racing just seems so dull rather than robot fighting.

This is a really great idea to have the fans decide what to be animated. I think things of this sort should be done more in the future. That being said, this panel of selection was a bit disappointing.
Enthusiast! -The Custom- No. Just no.
RS Project No because the animation and CG looks horrible
deadEndSparks The CG in this one looks ok, but character designs look a bit off... In fact, now that I think back, all of the character designs in the videos seemed a bit off...
Gyōkō no Dean-Drive (Day Break Dean-Drive) This one would probably be my pick because it looks like it actually has some half-good animations
Star Storks (~Hoshi no Yarikago~) This one would be my #2 because it looks better than the first three. It looks pretty interesting as well.
Overall, none are of these are really too thrilling or hype, so it'll depend on how the animation studio does with the animations.

lol Im glad Im not the only one who thought of IGPX(Enthusiast) and Zone of the Enders(RS project and deadendsparks) mech designs. Day break with the Gundam, but not Gundam look. I dont know what Star Stocks mech designs remind me of. They each have something I like, but I cant pick.

Judging the winner by 'highest play count' is pretty poor. Should be highest 'like' count.

Sloggett: They need viewers to justify airing it on teevee.
