Mecha anime pretty much always concerns the characters in it. Although this may sound like a fact to some, other people have a different viewpoint. In this episode of the podcast, I attempt to counter the idea that some mecha anime are focused mostly on ‘the mechas’ while others do on ‘the characters’. Get In The Mecha Season 2 starts now!
Note: Once again, apologies for the very late episode – trying to get back into the regular rhythm of things and avoid burnout in the process. Bare with me!
