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 😉
