Mecha Anime Mini-list

I´ve said it before and I´ll say it again; I hate mecha/sci-fi anime and manga. I don´t really have a legitimate excuse or reason why, I just dislike them, but now after watching and following "Darling in the Franxx" (which I wrote about, here´s the link ) for a while, I´ve taken a slight interest in the genre and I thought, maybe I should give it a chance? So, for a beginner like me, I quickly wrote down two mecha or sci-fi animes that I´m considering starting to watch.

Aldnoah.Zero: A 24-episode long Action & Mecha anime from 2014-2015, manga written by Olympus Knights and anime written by Katsuhiko Takayama. Description: "In 1969, an ancient alien hypergate was discovered on the surface on the moon. Using this technology, humanity began migrating to Mars and settling there. After settlers discovered additional advanced technology, the Vers Empire was founded, which claimed Mars and its secrets for themselves. Later, the Vers Empire declared war on Earth, and in 1999, a battle on the Moon's surface caused the hypergate to explode, shattering the Moon and scattering remnants into a debris belt around the planet. Cut off from Mars, the remnants of the Vers Imperial Army established several massive orbital space stations within the debris belt and a ceasefire was established. 15 years later, in 2014, an attack on the Vers princess during a peace mission causes the Empire and its 37 clans of Orbital Knights to launch a new attack on Earth, this time determined to conquer it once and for all."

Eureka Seven: A 50-episode long Sci-Fi, Mecha & Romance anime from 2005-2006, manga written by Jinsei Kataoka and anime written by Dai Satou. Description: "In the backwater town of Bellforest lives a 14-year-old boy named Renton Thurston. He desires to leave his home behind and join the mercenary group known as Gekkostate, hoping to find some adventure to brighten up his dull life. However, stuck between his grandfather's insistence to become a mechanic like him and the pressure of his deceased father's legacy, the only excitement Renton finds is in his pastime of riding the Trapar wave particles that are dispersed throughout the air, an activity akin to surfing.Everything changes when an unknown object crashes through Renton's garage, discovered to be a Light Finding Operation--a robot capable of riding the Trapar waves--specifically known as the Nirvash typeZERO. Its pilot is a young girl named Eureka, a member of the Gekkostate, who requests a tune-up for the Nirvash. Their meeting sparks the beginning of Renton's involvement with the Gekkostate, as he takes off alongside Eureka as the co-pilot of the Nirvash."

If you have any suggestions of mecha anime to me, please do recommend!
