Modern Visual Culture

シドニアの騎士

Synopsis

What if Attack on Titan was a hard sci-fi mecha anime?

That would be impossible, you say, because that would be so awesome the Universe would implode. Whelp, prepare for the literal end of time, because just such a thing exists. What if I told you it also explored traditional Japanese martial culture, and it was like someone dropped Edo inside a giant, grimy, Larry Niven-style seedship? My face! You scream, It’s just been rocked off!

Caution: tentacles.
