Mecha
Mecha are self-propelling machines that are modeled after humans; some can change into multiple, non-humanoid formats as well. They're usually controlled by an internal pilot or by remote, but are sometimes sentient beings that move autonomously. A mecha's size ranges from bulky, wearable armor to a massive, towering contraption and beyond. While mecha have a wide range of applications, such as making manual labor easier, they are most commonly portrayed as heavily-armed war machines. (Source: Anime-Planet)

    In the 90s, blending old-school Super Robot anime with elements of the recently-ended Transformers series, aired the “Braves” (Yuusha) franchise. With bodies of steel, hearts of fire, and oddly handsome faces, each one from “Brave Exkaiser” (1990) to “King of Braves GaoGaiGar” (1997) stood as a selfless guardian of love, peace and courage. So when an isekai princess tries to summon a “Yuusha”, who better to answer her call?

    ...wait, this is what the artist of the Knights' & Magic manga does in his spare time? Guy must really love his job.

    My war isn't over!
    One mobile suit infantryman's personal battle resumes as a red fire blazes again in his eyes!

    The Republic of Legium engaged in a costly war with the Federation of Dragnov after the latter attempted to reunify the two countries. A war broke out between the two nations with heavy losses to both sides and eventually, Dragnov forces came close to overrunning Legium's last line of defence around the capital of Solgren. As a trump card, Dragnov unveiled a new low altitude, infrared stealth warhead which could bypass the anti-ICBM orbital satellite laser defense (Orbit Eyes). The warhead was detonated 8km away from the capital, causing severe damage to its surroundings and convincing the Legium politicians to negotiate for a surrender, although Legium's Third Army refused to surrender and continued fighting.

    Captain Grahalt Mills, commander of the Legium nation's special forces "Jackal" unit, utilizes the most advanced powered infantry exoskeleton in existence, the SAA (Special Assault Armor). With the last line of defense faltering against Dragnov's pressing forces, the Jackals are deployed in a last ditch attempt to hold the line, and succeeded at destroying all opponents in their sector! Unexpectedly though, Mills' subordinates of the Jackals all frame him for the murder of several Legium soldiers, causing him to be sentenced to be executed for treason. Mills escapes from prison, and tracks down the old members of the Jackals, trying to find out why they betrayed him.

    Rygart Arrow is the only one in his world who lacks the inherent ability to power up quartz, the energy source that makes all of the machines run. Nevertheless, he’s pretty well connected. The King and Queen of his country of Krisna happen to be old college friends. But so is Zess, the guy who is leading the army of a neighboring kingdom in an attack on Krisna.

    How did it comes to this? There’s little time to ponder the implications as an army in giant, mechanized battle suits attacks. Arrow just feels like he’s in the way – until he comes across a powerful, ancient mech that no one has yet to be able to figure out how to run. But his natural affinity for the suit’s operating mechanism may just turn Arrow into the most important player of all.
