I LOVE THE EIGHTIES!!! Be it their fantasy films (I’m talking David Bowie Lycra here!) or their music (Nik Kershaw’s ‘The Riddle‘!) or anything else, the 80s is an era I have always admired. And I wasn’t even born in it! I LOVE THE NINETIES!!! Why? Because without the nineties I wouldn’t exist! HA HA HA!
It’s exactly the same for anime, I love retro anime, and I and many others consider the 80s and the early 90s to be the ‘Golden Age’ of anime. It brought forth my most beloved movie of all time: Akira, after all.
Now after the boom of Akira, everyone wanted to jump on the bandwagon, and this resulted in a slew of cyberpunk anime, primarily focussed on cops, government and lots and lots of violence. This trend continued, thus how we ended up with the most violent anime: Genocyber. Anyway, rewind back to late eighties going into the early nineties, and we end up with Angel Cop.
WARNING: The following review contains MAJOR spoilers for the Angel Cop anime, and mature content. Reader discretion is advised (but admit it, you’re going to read on anyway).

Anyway, I’ve been on-off writing a story called “Atelier” (pronounced [at-l-yey] ) which is kinda sorta inspired by the game franchise but isn’t very much like it at all. They have berets, there’s some alchemy (no angry short people though) and the main character is called Rorona Totori (see what I did there? *wiggly eyebrows*). Anyway, I was sourcing some pictures for the chapter’s, and I found some really nice wallpapers. Now, not all of them might be big, but spare me, I found them lurking in my “Pictures” folder, so just take what you get.
It’s so popular right now, I swear. It’s like the Sword Art Online of Spring 2013! I thought I would dedicate a post to the memes, cosplay, and other symptoms of “Attack On Titan Fever” on the internet. (I came up with that term all by myself…maybe now senpai will notice me!!!)
I TOLD YOU
What is this, I don’t even….how?
Um…how do I go about this? I guess it’s best to start from the beginning. SPOILERS AHEAD!!
After the success of episodes 1 and 2, its time to see if the rest of the series shapes up…SPOILERS AHOY!
This anime is HUGE right now! Actually, this entire franchise has received a massive boom in popularity. And frankly, it’s pretty easy to see why. The anime, directed by Tetsurou Araki and based on the equally popular manga by Hajime Isayama is so unique and so captivating, that millions of people are already hooked. Including me…
