Default Anime that might describe your army

Yeah, I know we all hate anime. : And yes, the Tau have heavy anime-influences (or so it's assumed.)

But what about Tau influences in anime? No, I'm not saying there's JSJ XV8s.

I refer you to Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu, episode 5. The fact he never seems to understand what HTH is, is what I figure the Tau think. Shoot, they might've even gotten their entire army from Mithril. :P

Anyway, pretty much share any anime you might have regarding your particular army. :P

I don't hate anime. .
See? Look at my anime-style emoticons.

Anyway, I agree with Ta... Ta'... ' I mean, with the OP. The Tau are VERY similar to the militaries of FMP. They have very specialized units, high-tech transport, and stylish looks. And mecha, of course. Although the full-sized Arm Slaves are way bigger than a Crisis suit.

I am a Anime and Manga enthusiast, so yes I am dragged to Tau because they are the most familiar object to me. :P

Well, the influence of my Tau are;

1) Armoured Core (The machines are how I imagine the Tau machines really work)
2) Gundam (Zeons and any mono-eye war machines in the whole series, for they influenced the look of my machines. Gundam Seed is an influence that in its own class.)
3) Full Metal Panic (the major influence for my Tau. Who doesn't like Venom?)
4) Sokkyu no Fafner: Daed Aggressor (these guys influence the grim part of 40k in my army)

These are the influence for my Crisis suits.

I agree with Vyper...I imagine the Tau battle suits as flying around the battlefield much like the ACs in Armored Core 4 (lots of quick boosting/dodging/firing)

Does that earn me a "re-roll my FNP" token? :P

Or one "Beat up Zen Ai" token? ;D

While AS are much bigger than XV8, isn't it entirely possible that XV8 could be piloted that way?
