Pink mecha are the scourge of the genre! KILL IT WITH FIRE. (Not that Geass is actually a mecha-oriented show. Still, PINK WTF.)
You are welcome. Always interesting reading about these sort of things from a Westerner's uninitiated perspective. Plus this article is actually decently researched and thought out unlike most about foreign sub-cultures.
For some reason I find myself unwilling to watch any shounen this season. And for some other reason I really don't want to watch another over-the-top style show ATM.
