I'm a fan, though I only played the GBA ones. I have no idea what happens after they defeat Stern Regisseur. I picked my username after Wodan's mech, after all.

Love 'em.  Need to get back to the second one on the GBA.  I think I was halfway through; I got distracted by some of the non-OG SRW games.  Anyway, that just leaves OGG and OG 2nd after that, right?  Does Dark Prison count as part of the OG series?

I've been a fan of the franchise for two years now. I originally found SRW due to its incredible music - I ended up loving it so much that I bought the OG soundtrack and pre-ordered the OG2 one (got it in the summer of 2013). I decided to look up the games and anime, and haven't looked back since~ I'm really REALLY hoping the PS2 games get English releases (with Japanese voices) because I want to play them so bad. ...I've actually played the GBA games, but I want mine with the voices... XD (I can't get past a certain early scenario in the first game. Elzam keeps killing all my units, including Sänger in his Grungust Type-0.)

As for my favorite mecha and pilots, I haven't watched the anime or played the games (much) yet, but I've read the entire SRW OG: Divine Wars -Record of ATX- manga, and the first four volumes of SRW OG: The Inspector -Record of ATX- (found them all in English... I just wish somebody would scanlate the rest of the volumes already).

Top 20 OG mecha
1. Ialdabaoth / Shinka Ialdabaoth (Folka Albark)
2. Alt Eisen / Alt Eisen Riese (Kyosuke Nanbu)
3. Huckebein Mk II (Brooklyn Luckfield, Elzam von Branstein, third unit is missing)
4. Geant Chevalier (Joshua Radcliffe)
5. Giganscudo / Giganscudo Duro (Tasuku Shinguji)
6. Graterkin / Graterkin II (Mekibos)
7. Cybuster / Possessed Cybuster (Masaki Andoh... AKASHIC NOVA!)
8. Raioh / Dairaioh (Touma Kanou)
9. Nashim Gan Eden (Irui Gan Eden)
10. R-Gun Rivale (Ingram Prisken)
11. Soulgain (Axel Almer)
12. Dygenguard (Sänger Zonvolt)
13. Aussenseiter (Elz- Rätsel Feinschmecker)
14. Astranagant (Ingram Prisken)
15. Grungust Type-0 (Sänger Zonvolt, Rishu Tougo)
16. Valefor / Shinka Valefor (Fernando Alduk)
17. Angelg (Lamia Loveless)
18. Rapiecage (Nagisa Ouka)
19. Grungust Kai (Irmgard Kazahara)
20. Vysaga (Lamia Loveless, Axel Almer)

If Hiryu Kai and Hagane counted, they'd be right there in the top-5.

Top 20 OG pilots
1. Kyosuke
2. Latooni
3. Irm
4. Sänger
5. Gilliam
6. Ingram
7. Kai
8. Elzam/Rätsel
9. Shu
10. Katina
11. Ryoto
12. Kusuha
13. Mekibos
14. Rai
15. Lamia
16. Asakim/Masaki (Asakim was the one who reincarnated into Masaki, not the other way around.)
17. Yuuki
18. Axel
19. Tasuku
20. Bian

Tetsuya and Lefina are two of my favorite characters - they don't count as pilots, but if they did, they'd rank above Kyosuke.
I also found a timeline of the OG world and translated the entire thing - it gives a better view of WHEN certain historical events happened. As in, real world years. Now we know the exact year when the meteors destroyed NYC and Moscow and the space age started.

SRW OG TIMELINE

2011
  • Setting of Ryuko-oh Denki Gaiden.

  • Meteors destroy New York and Moscow.
  • "Network Inferno" breaks out, the level of information technology declines to 1980s level.

2013
  • Emperor of Fury passes away, Shana-Mia inherits throne in the future. (Note: not sure how to translate the original line; either the Emperor was Shana-Mia's dad and the Fury went into stasis for 150-160 years, or he was her ancestor.)
