Looking for a mecha anime, either a series or movie between 1990 and early 2000s.
All I remember is the mecha being white and wielding a sword. I don’t recall if the pilot had angel type wings or the mecha did.
The scene I remember most vividly is the pilot sacrificing himself and slowly dying within the mecha armor somewhere in a forest. I remember opera type music playing in the battle prior to the pilot's death.
I’ve watched The Vision of Escaflowne and Cybuster since the armor is similar to what I remember but neither had the scene I just mentioned. If I recall correctly it was on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim. Currently watching Gundam Wing in my attempt to locate it.
