strange request

Post by Aerylina-leafschade » 11 Feb 2016 05:46

I'm trying to find an anime I watched in high school, it was around 1999 and 2003 most likely around 2001

I don't recall name but I recall bits of the story.

The anime was about a team of teenagers, who were called Jaeger pilots. They flew/ fought in mecha robots calked jaegers.

one characters goal was to be a jaeger pilot, going through trials and tribulations to do so.

Thing is every time I look this up, I find pacific rim. I'm honestly wondering if the movie is actually a remake of an anime of similar themes and English titles but is so obscure no one knows of it.

I saw this on the old Comcast on demand back when it had an anime section and bento beat box.

Thing is I never saw pacific rim and I recall hearing the terms and similar story back when I was 16.

Anyway, if anyone knows the anime or knows what to look up much help.

Anime I Know it's not

Gundam wing
Big o
Neon genesis evangalion

Any help is grateful, it been bugging my since pacific rim was in theaters cuz I swear it was an anime first that ppl just don't know.

Just can't remember the dam anime name.

I saw that but I don't trust wiki

Gold reason not too, jaguar tharn isn't pronounced yagar. But jag are

Where Jaeger is pronounced yay gar

Ima check pumpkin scissors. I know its not that ga kill cuz that is a recent anime the anime I'm trying to remember is Old.

We talking gundam fighters old the campy gundam series where students live on a space station are attacked they board an escape ship learn to pilot robots but all drift apart and end up killing each other in civil war, having the protagonist girlfriebd turn evil and did sending him into ptsd mode where only him and 1 other character live.

She had pink hair long dies when her ship explodes and see her body float in space.

That helps but the synopsis don't strike me as which 1 and I had 1/2 those anime

This is what I recal

It was animated in the style of gundam wing

the main character was a teen boy who grew up hearing of Jaeger pilots who fought intergalactic monsters.

The pilots are also teenagers, and the main character wishes to join them. To pilot a Jaeger is somewhat similar to nge but you don't sit in s pod of water, so think a cross between gundam wing, and nge.

Anyway the boys town gets attacked and is thrown into the fight being recruited as an under dog jaergar pilot.

The names of the jaerar similar to the ones in pacific rim. But not exact.

Robots looked similar to gundam.

It was a pretty obscure anime so doubt any mainstream site has it
