    I don't know if you would be interested in this one but it's Samurai 7. It's a mixture of mecha and of course samurai fighting. Here's the summary if your interested.

    As villages perish under the thumb of the Nobuseri -- a cruel race of warriors who are part men, part machine -- a young priestess named Kirara travels the countryside gathering stray samurais. But while her hope is that these brave souls can rally to save the land, she's not certain they can put their differences aside. Set in a postwar, futuristic world, this animated tale is based on the epic Akira Kurosawa film The Seven Samurai.
    It's also got like 27 episodes so you'll have plenty to watch. Anyway, hope this helps you!

    Nadesico is definitely something you should watch; it's one of the few (only?) anime that actually makes fun of anime itself, not just a specific genre.

    There's also Bubblegum Crisis, a cross between the "Girls with Guns" genre and mecha. I've only seen the remake, which I enjoyed, but I can't really give you any info about the original.

    Generator Gawl is good too, and the voice of Gawl in the eng dub is done by the same voice actor who does Ed in Fullmetal Alchemist.

    I hate that anime. Way more then just 'I don't like it' and such. The characters are all forgettable, the 'realistic' mechs...and it has politics...

    It has a few innovative and fresh things about it, but I didn't find it to be enough. I thought it lacked soul, but if the if you like the summaries on various sites, go for it. I only saw it because a local bookstore that was closing had the DVDs for five dollars each.

    Re: Need an anime suggestion

    There is one anime yet to be mentioned in this category...

    Have you tried watching Dual! already?

    It's a mix of mecha + parallel universe kinda of story with a little of the "girls fighting over or liking one guy" bit... But that's only for comedic relief... ^^;

    Lotsa of fun here... They have some really funny gags in the series...

    It's a bit like Evangelion wherein there are opposing sides and civilians to protect in (good-looking) mech battles; but without the angst, as you have specified...

    If you want something light-hearted, humorous, and entertaining in, still, a robotic sense... Then I suggest you go right on and watch this... ^^

    Yeah, Dual was interesting. There were some things I didn't like about it, but for the most part, it was pretty much what I was looking for.

    Yeah, I agree... Some things about it were pretty lacking... And the series didn't run long enough to reach it's full potential when it came to storyline developments... It's really too bad how the episodes can make you feel cramped sometimes... >.<

    I really like what they did with the charas though, they were all contrasting yet together... Making it comedic... And it's mostly what I loved about Dual! ^^

    Well, if this series pretty much fit the bill, then maybe you should try Martian Successor Nadesico? You never know, it might be just what you're looking for... ^^
