Zone of the Enders is also an anime series that I don't know enough about to comment on.
Started in March 11th, 2001, the Zone of the Enders series was introduced by Konami and due to the success of it, it merited the distribution of an anime series and a sequel and even several Model figures.
One proper misconception is that the mechs have penises. This is not true. Below the abdomen, every mech in the series has a cockpit which partrudes away from the center. The cockpit also does not attack. This is a common misconception by ignorant Zoids fans and cannot be forgiven.
<Nephtis> so true bro. They made a sequel, you know
<taco_fox> sweet is it r2wl?
<Nephtis> ya, a lot better than that crappy Zoids game.
<taco_fox> heh who would compare ZOE to something like Zoids anyway?
Poohams8000: yea, he better get to work on a ZOE4 after he finishes Metal Gear Solid 3.
