I think these were pulled from his tumblr (link to the "mech" tag, for ease of browsing, where you can find some in-progress images, and other finished works)

I watch a lot of anime but I'm not a big fan of anime. But if they took this concept and made it, I'd definitely give it a viewing. Much like Hello Kitty Warhammer 40k.

Say! Who is that making a mess of the [highway lane] line? That's not Goldbug, is it? No, it can't be Goldbug. He would never do a thing like that. That fellow must be Maniacbug.

Missed the editing window, my comment should say I watch a lot of anime but I'm not a big fan of mecha. Makes a little bit more sense that way, derp.

This is awesome. And remarkably creative. I love the water mech.
