Water is extremely versatile in the real world and the same can be said for its place in animated filmmaking. In this episode of Get In The Mecha I take a look at how anime makes use of water as a device for telling profound stories, from Attack On Titan to Heike Monogatari. I also discuss why it is worth loooking into these tools for yourself when engaging with a piece of art.

Hope you enjoy this episode!
