It's not often that we launch a section for an entirely new mecha franchise, but today is one of those days. We have a new section for the currently airing Sunrise Beyond anime AMAIM: Warrior at the Borderline. This includes mecha sections for the TV series and the spinoff photonovel Frost Flower. Both will be updated regularly as the season continues.
This update is not as extensive as previous ones, but it features new variable fighters and ships for the second Macross Delta movie.

Today's update features something we haven't had for a long time: a new Super Robot Wars mecha section! This time it's for the game Super Robot Wars UX with lineart and info courtesy of Kuruni. There's also a lot of new lineart for Lord of Elemental and Super Robot Wars EX, also courtesy of Kuruni. We have a lot of catching up to do for this franchise, and if you have and lineart/info/faction listings for games and would like to help, contributions can be made to this Mecha Talk thread.
10.03.21 - Refining the Formula by Chris 10:36 A.M.
In today's update, I've created a new section for the various mission packs featured under the umbrella of the F90 A to Z Project. That section includes the following new profiles, which are in Burke's expanded format:
The Zeta Gundam re-review project reaches the halfway point with today's update covering episodes 23-25. For the sake of mixing up the new content, the next few updates will briefly shift away from this re-review.
In this update I return to the Gundam Wing manga re-review project to finally conclude it with my review for volume 3. With that out of the way, I can now tackle a bigger re-review project: Zeta Gundam.
07.11.21 - Witnessing the Flash by Chris 6:17 P.M.
Today's update switches back to Gundam with a review for the first movie in the Gundam Hathaway trilogy. If you haven't seen it yet for yourself, it's available outside of Japan on Netflix with multiple language options.
Today is one of those rare days when an anime section is fully completed. For this update, Brian has sent in reviews for episodes 42-50 of Xabungle, along with a review for the compilation movie Xabungle Graffiti. Accordingly, the Review Averages page has also been updated.
05.26.21 - Dream Colored Chaser by Chris 11:11 P.M.
Yikes....another update coming along much later than the previous one! Today we're shifting away from Gundam, as Kuruni has sent in a large amount of lineart for nearly every mecha in Metal Armor Dragonar, covering both the TV series and the Variations.
Wow, it has been a long time since the last update, right? Well, real world obligations have been a time sink so far this year, but that situation will be changing soon. But let's move on to another subject - you know what time it is. Another year has come and gone, and today MAHQ is 21-years-old. This time last year, I showed off a mock up for a total site redesign. So what happened to that? In a word, 2020 happened. We all know how that experience has felt like, but I can assure you that the work continues in the background, and hopefully I'll be able to show some of our progress in the near future.
Some other things promised last year haven't happened, including some new review sections and a teased return for Laplace's Box. Why? Again, 2020. The former will still come at some point, but I have no news to report on the latter. It's customary to have some kind of special update to match the occasion, but this is going to end up being a quiet year in that respect. As always, I want to thank our contributors, visitors, and our community on Mecha Talk, Facebook and our Gundamn! livestreams. Whether you're new to it all or a seasoned veteran, I'm glad you choose to spend your time here. The last year is best left in the past where it belongs, and I'm looking forward to better things.
It has been a long time since I've done anything relating to Gundam Wing, but today's update is a re-review for volume 1 of the original 1990s manga adaptation. In addition to going through this TV adaptation, I'll also be re-reviewing some of the vintage side story manga.
