I've been searching for this anime for years, but I can't find it! It was shown in the early 90's on a Chinese channel so I never got the name of it. I can't really remember much but here some stuff that happens in the anime:

  • The main character is a young boy who plays like an ocarina

  • He finds mecha in a mountain (i think)

  • When he first finds the mecha he rides on its shoulder and it only walks when he plays the ocarina

  • All mechas i remember can be entered from the torso of the mecha (entry point to mecha is through like an orb?) And be controlled within the mecha.

  • There was also a girl character with pink hair who the main character meets (I think their first meeting is he catches her while she's skinny dipping lol)

  • Pink hair girl characters brother is on the evil side

  • All the bad guys have a tear drop on their face

Can anybody identify this anime?

FYI, might be a better place to ask this question. – coleopterist Feb 21 '13 at 8:40
@coleopterist But its on-topic here too and can get an answer too. – Ankit Sharma Feb 21 '13 at 9:18

Could it be Yamato Takeru?

One of the descriptions that led me here contains the line:

"Takeru, a 12-year-old boy from Earth, who happened to discover the buried robot Susanoo and woke it from its million-year-long sleep.

And, as you can see, his friend has pink hair ;)
