    EVA-01
    The EVA-01 is a mecha piloted by Shinji Ikari and has the best battle record of all the Evangelions. It has been known to act independently (in the so-called "berserker" mode) without the instructions of a pilot and sometimes without any apparent power source. The Eva will also take action to protect its pilot while sometimes servicing other interests. The Eva's resident soul, Yui Ikari (Shinji's mother), appears to be responsible for such events. It is also the only EVA that can function without an external power source for an indefinate amount of time, since it absorbed an S² Engine. It has regenerative abilities (it regenerated its severed left arm)

    Astro Boy
    the death of Dr Boynton's (a robotics engineer) son Astor (Toby in the first remake) in a car accident (help with some character names from Dave Sternberg). He makes a robot in his son's image, but disappointed that he's not a real boy he disowns him, and he is sold to a robot circus and here is named Astroboy. The ringmaster Cachatore (Hamegg in the new series) treats him cruelly, but he is later rescued by Dr. Elefun (large nose and two puffs of hair on the sides of his head) who is against slavery of robots. Under his guidance, Astroboy embarks on adventures, fighting anything that threatens mankind. Astroboy can fly using jet rocket propulsion; has weapons including a lazer and machine gun, and has emotions. Astroboy, like most of the other robots, lives by the robot law that orders robots to help mankind by doing what's good.

    I voted for the EVA-01. Firstly because its such a cool mech. Secondly, Astro Boy is not my sort of thing :S

    Plus...the EVA-01 looks so much cooler!!! I want one! >=O

    (singing)Astro Boy! Astro Boy! Mighty Atomu!

    *cough* sorry, couldn't resist singing. We bought the entire series (second, not first, but second is actually closer to the manga) really cheap at a convention. Its fantastic! Eva is cool, yeah, but I like Astro better. While it is really cute and stuff, it has a really strong message about humanity that, for the most part, I agree with. Also, its got disco j-pop! So cheezy that its awesome. Astro Boy (or Tetsuwan Atom, if you prefer) is an anime classic, and it makes a hell of a lot more sense than Eva does.

    Plus, Astro Boy can shoot bullets out of his ass. What Eva can do that, hmm?

    EVA's can shoot Astro Boy's out of its ass. After it's eaten Astro Boy that is...and we all know the EVA-01 is prone to eating the enemy (hence the S² Engine) :S

    EVA-01 of course, for all the reasons Meteorain said. Yay for the EVA with the horn, or whatever the quote was, hehe.

    Astroboy just doesn't compare. :p :D

    Hehe, broke the tie.
