081: Get in the robot, Jalada

This is the start of a new anime-themed Octal FM series! Sefran has watched anime for most of his life, but Jalada has watched almost none. We’re changing that.

In particular, we’re going to focus on anime that Sefran may have watched a long time ago, to see how time has aged (or not) each series.

If you have suggestions for series we/Jalada should watch, let us know! Nothing too long, please.
