Doing the whole Transformers thing? GaoGaiGar and the other Brave series did this. Machine Robo too I think.

Evangelion

Shieeet, there's some irony.
Technically, M3 falls into the mechs are characters thing. It's just not revealed right away.

Not mecha per se, but yukikaze is a fighter jet with sentient ai, and is frankly a better character than its pilot.

Rei's more fun in the books, but yeah Yuki pretty much steals the spotlight after switching to the Maeve airframe and getting major character development throughout the span of the second book.

Would you really recommend appleseed?

I can't tell if you're askinf my opinion or if you mean that you didn't like the movie and are asking if I would recommend crap. But I'll assume the first.

Basically, yes. I would recommend Appleseed and Ex Machina. I haven't seen the others.

I saw the 2004 movie and Ex Machina a few years ago. I want to say that 2004 had some sort of stupid android plot, but overall I thought it was pretty good. Ex Machina got weird in the second half but the impression I'm left with right now is that it wasn't bad.

I mean, in reality, mecha anime always have some shit that you can nitpick over about them. Especially mecha anime, I wonder why that is.

Not him but while I wouldn't recommend the adaptations I'd recommend the manga in a hearbeat and recommend it again.

If he's talking about Briareos it's kind of pushing it but hey whatever. Go read Appleseed, it's fucking good.

Well, the Yuusha series (which means Hero in Japanese) are a series of Heroic looking robot that fight world threats which change depending on the series. Some Titles have sentient robots, who are characters in of themselves. Others don't and have human pilots instead, but all feature robots prominently.
A key point is that this is a Super Robot series, so they don't treat robots like they would in a military-centric Real Robot show; the sentient robots are the heroes, and if they don't have sentient robots, the pilots and their robots are treated one and the same.

Gargantia has Chamber, the best brobot in years.

Ghost in the Sheel: SAC has the Tachikomas, where are not giant but are really great.

Eureka Seven has a borderline case. Nirvash basically doesn't talk, but it is clearly alive and is very much a main character.

The Ghost in the Shell manga has Tachikomas too. Er, they're called Fuchikomas, I still don't get the distinction. And yeah they are so great.

Dragon's Heaven. Giant sentient robot works alongside human in power armor to fight an old enemy. Dem Matoko Kobayashi mechanical designs, dat Moebius styling.

Roujin-Z. Driving point of the plot is a machine that gains a kind of sentience, I don't know what to say without giving even more away but trust me, it's forty five minutes long so just go watch it. Right now.

I liked Dragon's Heaven, but it was too short and the plot just kind of happened without much advancement done by the characters.

The Fuchikoma design couldn't be used for some bullshit legal reason, so they had Shirow design a new spider-bot type thing in their place.
