As a huge Sci-fi fan and having enjoyed anime since I discovered it in the mid 80s with the likes of Robotech, an Americanisation of 3 Japanese animes including Macross, I can’t go past Macross Frontier for sci-fi inspiration.
As my latest novel is rushing head long to the finishline, I need some get up and go inspiration to which Macross Frontier delivers in spades…plus it helps me to expand my culture :)
P.S. my love for anime grew into sourcing shows like Akira from specialist shops via BBS and speciality shops…i.e. before the net became mainstream ;)
