Title: Interesting how looking up the term 'mecha' lead me to a WTF plot twist... (spoilers) Posted: August 09, 2010 (01:35 PM)
So, in an upcoming review, I used the word 'mech' several times, but I wasn't sure that was the correct or original term, so I did a quick google search. Of course, the first link lead to Wikipedia... I went and read a little of the history at the beginning of the page, which eventually lead me to a mention of Mazinger Z.
I clicked on that link just for the hell of it. I then read a bit of the info on that page, and decided to click on a link to Go Nagai's wiki page. I was greeted by a picture of Go Nagai waving back at me. Read basically the "First success and controversies" section. At this point, I was like, "What the hell, lemme read about Devilman while I'm at it."
I read the plot section, to see what the hell the story was really about, which eventually lead into the manga's ending: Devilman/Akira's "girlfriend" is killed by a human horde, he finds her dismembered body, and then he goes off to fight satan, where the story concludes with the world blowing up and Devilman being defeated.
This in turn lead to a half-assed search where I wanted to find scans of these moments, but gave up when I magically stumbled into TV Tropes and spent most of the night reading stupid tropes, one of which lead me to this.... interesting YouTube clip:
Damn you, mecha!

I don't watch much anime anymore (okay, I don't watch ANY anime anymore) but if I did I'd probably be watching One Piece.
