Akiyuki Shinbo may be one of the greatest anime directors of all time – but how exactly does he direct anime? In this week’s episode of Get In The Mecha, I do a brief study of Shinbo’s OVAs to get to the bottom of what his style really looks like and what we can learn from his approach to anime.
Note: Again, another late episode – had a few things to juggle this week but still wrestling with the schedule. Thanks for your patience!
