For the record, we 100% won't be seeing giant mecha ala Pacific Rim in Year One.

As for kaiju... <points at Great Dragon in Aysle SB>

Am I the only one who remembers oTORG's Nippon Tech sourcebook and the "Power Armor" that was basically a robot?

They had something like the robots in the original robocop.

Rijato Battlesuit, some Japanese enthusiasts wrote an adventure book(for TorgE) around it fighting a Kaiju(system-wise an enhanced yokai).

Honestly don't want it to become the Anime Cosm just because it's set in Asia.

Okay with kaiju and can accept zombies (even though our culture hit Peak Zombie a decade ago) but really don't want to see anime tropes.

So much you could do with Asia beyond amine.

This is my opinion as well. Just because axioms change shouldn't mean all Core Earth myths/pop culture become real. They are different realities invading, not Core Earth ideas. Torg isn't Rifts... If an anime cosm invaded I'd rather see it somewhere else. Like southern Africa, somewhere unrelated and completely unexpected.

It's been stated elsewhere that PP is more in line with Hard Boiled or Resident Evil. No big robots.
