MechaBay strives to be the most definitive and accurate reference for popular mecha series. We are currently focussing on the Gundam series but our goal is to cover other popular series in the genre.
The site was founded by Jenxi and Michael on 1 February 2009. They were contributors to the Gundam Wiki. However, the constrains of the wiki system led to the decision to migrate the project to a self-hosted solution. The articles on the Gundam Wiki was also in a mess due to disorganised duplication of Wikipedia articles. Heavy advertising on the wiki further contributed to the chaotic appearance.
The design of MechaBay is clean and simple, devoid of unnecessary clutter. Rather than focus excessively on mecha specifications, MechaBay works towards a balance between more technical information and other in-universe content, such as articles about the characters, organisations and factions.
