Arthur C. Clarke: best friend of anime
Today I was reminded that anime frequently borrows from Western science-fiction.
I’ve known about the Neon Genesis Evangelion - Childhood’s End connection. Today I was researching Logan’s Run and came across The City and the Stars, which I have never read.
I just watched Gurren Lagann, and multiple plot elements overlap. I suspect TCatS lacks Gurren Lagann’s enthusiasm and insanity. It probably also doesn’t have face-mecha.
