Get In The Mecha is back and so is our annual edition of Unskippable Openings, where I talk about some of my favourite openings from the past year! An important thing I want to cover in this year’s edition is the question, ‘what is the relationship between the opening and the show itself?’. In this episode, I try to not only talk about the openings I really liked but the people who worked on them and what they do to deepen our understanding of the anime.

Apologies for the unplanned break! If you want to hear what happened, please refer to the post-credit notes at the end of the episode!

Thank you for the review Phoenix! Check out TheAnimeTea on YouTube & podcast platforms.
