Technically most mecha are metal, but Mazinkaiser SKL is METAL. This anime is action-packed and just plain crazy. Ever see a giant robot use gun kata?

My last post was my 100th one. Not too bad for a little over 3 months.
Tomorrow is Halloween, so how about the opening from an anime that’s all about ghosts and spirits?
This is Oversoul by Megumi Hayashibara, the first opening for Shaman King.
S-CRY-ed’s opening was rarely exactly the same twice, but I think the variations in this video might get all of it. No matter what animation went with it and which part of the song was used, Reckless Fire is one of the all-time great anime openings.
