Sort of. The landmates are there, but they can suddenly fly now for no reason.
The second movie is pretty much just a blur of matrix-fu and slow-mo cam with a completely out of left feild hellraiser-esk villian. If that had any proper mecha stuff in it, I may have deleted it from memory.
Would definately call the manga 'real mecha', through. It's like I've said before, the best mecha series on the ones that don't actually focus on the robots all that much. Hell, Votoms falls into this catagory.
