Anime Openings #2: Here come the robots!

So one of the things that brought me to like anime in the first place when I was younger were the Giant Robots I saw in some anime series as such the mecha genre is one of my favorite anime genres, although my favorite series to this day continues to be Cowboy Bebop.

So like the first three openings that I showed you on the first post these three openings have nostalgic value for me but even if they didn’t I’d still think they are really cool openings which hopefully will prompt you to check out the series if you are into Anime.

Until the day a new Hedrodyne raises his ugly head. Against orders three PR officers steal Dai-Guard and become the citizen’s only hope to protect the city against this new wave of Hedrodyne attacks.”
