M3: The Dark Metal (M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane) Collected Commentary Notebook, Part I (Episodes 1 – 16)

My episodic notes, reactions, and commentary from M3: The Dark Metal (M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane), which aired during the Spring and Summer 2014 anime seasons.

Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Thirteen Season Shutdown
