I’ve really slowed down on anime. Started Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, plus Tanya the Evil and Dragon Maid ages ago but haven’t watched any of those in a while. But oh well, figured it’s about time to get into this behemoth of a franchise (on episode 14 atm). I’ve always professed to liking mechs but haven’t watched nearly enough mecha (I think my interest mostly stemmed from Mechwarrior 3, but whatever). I watched the first season of Iron Blooded Orphans months and months ago and it was pretty damn good, but I figured it’d be better to start from the start. As it’s from the 70’s, I expected some cheesy-ness (but it actually wasn’t as cheesy as I thought it would be), but for the time the animation for the fights and combat is pretty cool and entertaining and how they portray the scale of the Mobile Suits, the overall story, universe and a space scale war, I think is great. I also like the fact it takes some time to show the conflict from the side of the Xeon at points too.
Also thinking of picking up the Blu-Ray for The Vision of Escaflowne, instead of streaming in crap quality, for a change.
