Team GLORIO USA Lite (Jel, Iro, and Gee) talk about why we love mecha, the challenges mecha anime has faced over the past 20 years, and where we’d like to see mecha go in the future. Also, we try not to get sued by Harmony Gold.
To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we decided to relive our favorite part of forcing ourselves to watch every anime that ever comes out: the surprises. Just about every season a show or two pops up out of nowhere and turns out to be pretty good, and we wanted to give a shout out to a few you might of missed. To start, we’ll be taking a look at 2012 and 2013.
