Darling in the FranXX and Mech Shows in 2018

Since most of my Mecha March material is looking toward the past, let’s break the mold of that and talk about the other Christmas ghosts. You know, the present and future. As of right now, 2018 is a lot better of a year for mech anime then the previous few. Why? Because there are going…
