Aha. I imagine you'll enjoy immersing yourself in some of your anime memories. For now, at least, I find myself in the middle of some unusual yet familiar thoughts. It would appear that my own anime interests have remained fairly constant, reflecting my immersion in political turbulence. The two most recent shows I'm watching to this effect are Red Eye Killer, or Akame ga Kill, and Terror in Resonance. Indeed, global trends appear to be converging on a view that a cross between the Thirty Years' War and World War One is breaking out, starting with Ukraine and the Middle East. We won't have to guess who to credit for that view. For my part, it's enough to convince me that I've come full circle after reading David Goldman's How Civilizations Die about three years ago, in the sense of seeing two factions openly dedicated to their own visions of the end of the world.
