There better not be any fucking CGI in this!

I'm still not sure I believe this is coming out. Del Toro doesn't direct movies any more. He delegates.

I'm waiting to see if they do a last-minute swap on the final cut and put someone else's name up as director.

I wonder if Guillermo del Toro has ever heard of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I was gonna say something along those lines, but then I figured there was only marginal overlap between the two. You might as well compare it to Voltron.

If there's a difference, it's that Voltron wasn't originally created to be piloted by humans trained to fight giant creatures that had been in stasis beneath the earth's surface.

This looks like the perfect summer blockbuster. I give the film a 10/10.

If I remember correctly, the Angels in Evangelion came from space (or the heavens, if you will). Plus, the mechas defending the Earth weren't exactly robots - they have substantial organic components, derived from the same genetic material as the Angels, and so they are probably closer to being giant cyborgs controlled (with varying success) by fourteen-year-old children.

It's not like I've never seen a single frame of NGE. I was recycling the most common fanboy reaction to Pacific Rim. Every time some bit of news surfaces, people bring up NGE

Also, I was working from the Wikipedia info for the show. On the "List of Angels in Neon Genesis Evangelion" entry, the "Adam" section has a bit that reads, "Adam is discovered within the White Moon buried under Antarctica."

I'm sure they originally came from space. I'm sure the ones in the del Toro movie did to. The trailer says something asinine like "We always thought alien life would come from the stars, but it came from deep beneath the Pacific." I guess the implication is that it originally came to Earth "from the stars," but was discovered much later--like with the cinematic Transformers.

* * *

In both GoLion and Lion Force Voltron lore, Voltron was originally an unmanned and sentient robot who tramped the galaxy and was split into five pieces. The circumstances behind the split differs from one show to the next. In the original, he was broken up by a goddess as a punishment for his arrogance. In the US reworking, he was "tricked" by Witch Haggar. How it was that this split resulted in five robot lions with canopied openings and controls just big enough for a single human to fit in and operate is never really addressed.

* * *

Anyway, to support your original point, most of the anime mecha series from the late seventies and eighties are kinda interchangeable. You might as well compare Pacific Rim to Robotech/Macross, Mazinger Z/Tranzor Z, Starvengers/Getter Robo G, Tetsujin_28-go/Gigantor, or Grandizer/Grendizer

The above are all the mecha shows I know. One day, I will watch some of the newer stuff. I hear some of it is pretty good.

Big robots punching stuff was also done in Star Fleet.  Doesn't mean the film is based on Star Fleet.  I think a lot of the fanboy reaction to these things, when they say "It looks like......" is usually them publicly showing off how extensive their knowledge of obscure Japanese anime, or something else, is.

Fucking fanboys.

Reminds me of a joke:

Guy A - "I was so wasted last night, I got home and blew chunks!"

Guy B - "Thats not so bad, we've all puked after a really big night!"

Guy A - "You don't understand, Chunks is my dog!"

I feel like you've been reminded of that joke before.

Also, I'm surprised you didn't create a new thread for the joke.

That reminds me of a joke:

Guy B - "Thats not so bad, we've all puked after a really big night!"

Guy A - "That makes me feel so much better. Thanks, Chunks!"

Take note of Quasar's immense improvement on your joke, Dalty. From now on, tell people his version.

 And yet you bemoaned my absence because the forums were less 'lively'.

You want to have your cake and eat it.
