    i barely remember this mecha anime series 'coz i was still 10 years old at that time, i saw it on axn. it was kinda like full metal panic, but some of the mechas in the series have their own minds. i don't remember any more detail but i think it was aired the same time as a submarine related anime series too. i think "blue submarine no. 7" was the name.


    EDIT: additional info

    it aired during the year 1999 or 2000 on axn and was already in english. 'coz that was the years i was living with my grandma and they have cable.
    i don't remember any "other dimensions" on the series, i guess it's based on present earth(1999) going to the future.
    the protagonist and the antagonist kinda know each other, like former rivals.
    a lot of military action, i don't remember seeing them fight in space, only on earth.
    one of the sides in the war have a diamond shaped fortress, either floating in air or water.
    mechas have their own minds, thus they can move on their own even without pilot, but i'm not sure if both sides have them.

    that's all i can squeeze of my mind right now

    Probably not it based off the description, but maybe The Vision of Escaflowne? I miss the good ol days when mech anime was popular.

    When it started, I thought it was Evangelion, and the mechas look like Evas or Knightmare Frames(the white one looks like Lancelot) [​IMG]
