Welcome to the second round of 2013’s Battle Arena Otaku Fight! Fight!. This is MTV Geek’s annual brawl between the biggest and best in characters from anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture characters. Not only will we get a chance to spotlight some of most interesting, most intriguing, or simply odd characters from 2013, but it’s also a chance to you to have your voice heard. You know the drill: we’ll present the matchup, and you the reader will get to choose which character comes out on top. So which mech, heroine (or hero), monster, or mascot will come out on top this year?
Let the second round commence!
Watch out for these two deadly weapons: one an ageless fighter, the other an incredible mech. Which will win?
What we have here is a battle between two very different types of weapons in two very different types of battles: a machine used for smashing other machines and the female embodiment of Arthurian legend, returned to fight in a shadow war for the Holy Grail.
It’d be easy to find the angles in a battle between super mech Gaiking and one of the other competitors like, say, Godzilla: smash vs smash, and then one wins, right? But it’s trickier when you’re pitting massive sci-fi machines against magic. But if anyone (well, anything) can take down Saber, it’d be the massive Gaiking, heroic machine from the beloved Go Nagai-created anime.
But what about Saber? This woman of few words and many slick, deadly moves has battled other living weapons and lived to tell the tale. What’s one giant robot to her? Will she be able to cut this opponent down to size like she has all others?
Of course, you’ll be the ones deciding who gets cut and who stays. Will it be the maiden or the machine?
