End Note by Kyokai:
I hope you enjoyed our take on mecha and this is for all the mecha fans out there who think Metanorn hates ’em. Naaawww, we can never do that and I think I proved the point with some of us going more than overboard fangirling few series. As it has to be said, we noticed some voice degradation in the beginning of the podcast but the connection was troubling and Amuro did fix it stat. Next episode with be with AAA peeps and will be released quicker than this. Look forward to it. Till next time. Ja ne~
Thanks again to Amuro for dropping by. We had loads of fun chatting him up. You can listen to him more at Anivision.
