It's about that time, players. We're discussing giant robots and the feelings people are feeling while inside of them as we wipe the floor with villainous stooges, recognize the necessity of equipping items before a boss fight, question Citan's concern for the innocent, observe Rico's declining mental state, watch Elly turn face, and witness how much Fei loves heart-to-heart conversations before, during, and after serious conflict. Heart stopping mysteries are solved, robots fall in slow motion, the soundtrack glues everything together, and what in the world was that black Gear? Night Purge is the first episode we recorded in the day time.
