i.e. Mecha – Manga in which robots, androids and/or aliens are the focal elements of the story’s plot. Usually the stories they tell are fantastical and larger-than-life in nature and feature large-scale battles and/or action sequences. For the most part, the robots themselves have no human characteristics and are more often than not controlled by one or several human protagonists. Examples include Kamen Riders by Shotaro Ishinomori and Tetsujin 28-go by Mitsuteru Yokoyama. Mecha is one of the main branches of shonen which developed after WWII. The war was a painful experience for the Japanese who were not only forced to surrender but were discouraged from promoting any militarism during the American occupation. As a result, manga such as mecha emerged which allowed the nation to dream of greatness again.
