It was? Damn… didn’t recognise it! We’re not up to date with it though, maybe we just haven’t seen the parts.
It was from the most recent arc of the last couple episodes. The handyman and cooking isekai are both sharing second place for me behind the 80K one, with the odd harem farming one in last but I’m still watching it. There’s also the “Grace of Gods” and “Evolutionary Fruit” sequels, but both of those have gotten a bit stagnant.
Looks up Mecha characters with blue hair, it’s only Rei. Which is correct
Well those characters share a lot of traits with Rei. They won’t die even if you kill them.
I’m just reading through this entire thread to maybe get some recommendations out of it for when I eventually pick up some anime again aaaannnndddd I stumbled on this post and I just had to…
Slight Cyberpunk rambling (sorry not sorry)
I’m sorry what? I’m not sure if this is supposed to be sarcastic or if it’s just incredibly misinformed.
Gunnm’s Manga released (according to Wikipedia) between 1990 and 1995. The term “Cyberpunk” was coined going back as far as 1980 and was used to describe the works of William Gibson, primarily the Neuromancer-Trilogy.
Cyberpunk (the Pen&Paper game by Mike Pondsmith that both Cyberpunk 2077 and also Cyberpunk Edgerunners are based on) released its first edition (later referred to as “Cyberpunk 2013”) in 1988.
Even Blade Runner (the original obviously) - which many regard as defining the aesthetics of Cyberpunk for years to come even until now (and was a major influence for the aforementioned Cyberpunk P&P) - was released in 1982.
So as good as Alita may or may not be (I still have not gotten around to watch it), it is definitely not what “spawned” the Cyberpunk genre.
And if we’re wanting to look for examples coming back to Anime and Manga: Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell exist.
Anyway after the ramble I’ll try to actually participate with my very limited knowledge in Anime
