Something along these lines. -_-
Skis would work too, but it would sink down to it's belly whenever it stops.
If you're really dedicated to putting rockets on the feet, I guess you could always squash the body a bit and give it a kinda "hubcap ufo" shape, too. This could act like a skipping stone at high speeds; but actually getting to that speed, dragging the legs and everything through the water, would take ages...
Unless you, ah, put it upsidedown too. But that would probally look kinda dumb. :I
I guess people just call it "real" instead of "realistic" because most of the series still involve outer space and psychic mutants and junk for flavour. But eh.Originally Posted by the rebel that guy knew once
For somebody watching for the very first time, I guess I recommend... erm... Maybe Macross Plus? Some of the half-decent Gundam stuff mentioned above? Blue Gender is pretty good, at least most of it. You can't go wrong with the Ghost in the Shell TV series, but it doesn't actually have that much focus on mecha, really.
Kinda depends on what you actually like, through. If you aren't interested in the look and feel of big stompy robots, there is no point forcing yourself to sit through stuff, really. Maybe it's worth just youtubing some trailers and stuff to see if you find any of the mentioned thingies cool looking?...
