I Drink And Watch Anime
In case Ive been too subtle on the point, I really liked Gurren Lagann. Its not a particularly kind story though. It gets pretty rough with its cast. Of the survivors, few if any are unscathed. One of the prevalent themes of Gurren Lagann seems to be that a life well led is as rich in pain as it is in joy. Only the strong can thrive in such circumstances. And Yoko is one strong lady.
When we first get introduced to Yoko Littner Ohh sheeze guys, forget this. This isnt me. Its not what I want to say about this character. Let me start again.
I freakin love Yoko. So so much, guys! And its not the costume or anything. I mean those are really nice too. Bottom line, I want to be like Yoko. I want to not let vulnerability rot into weakness. I want to be petty and superficial and care about my looks and remain smart, efficient and kind. I dont want to be defined by my relationships, but I want to be able to melt into them. I want to give my heart over willingly and freely but never lose myself. I want to be a person who can take bitter tragedy and pound it into experience, then nurture that experience into wisdom and hand that wisdom over to those that need it most.
I want the fact that I am a badass warrior and expert sniper to be the least interesting things about me.
Its not going to happen. I know that. Ill only ever get to be Yoko for brief instants in my very greatest moments.;If Im lucky.;And thats already pretty extraordinary.

I would like this time to dedicate this article to Origa who worked closely with Yoko Kanno to produce the soundtracks for the Ghost in the Shell series. Origa lived a full and exciting life, but unfortunately succumbed to lung cancer at the young age of 44 this past January. Rest in peace Origa, and thanks for all the great songs you left us with.
Whew!!!! I could keep going and going and going about Yoko Kanno. This article is just an introduction to her genius, but its a pretty good idea of where to go. Im sorry if your favorite show that she has written for hasnt made it here, but why not tell me about it in the comments? She has worked on countless shows so Id love to hear what your favorites are!
American by birth; international by choice. I am trying to bring attention to one of my favorite causes; me. I translate by day and write by night. Aspiring polyglot. My dream would be to be the personal translator for Amuro Namie. Other than that, my hobbies include languages, weightlifting, sleeping, karaoke, GOOD coffee and music. When Im not doing any of the above, I am most likely laughing hysterically at Willam Belli videos or EV farming. I aint gunna Rupologize for it neither. Waifu are Shirai Kuroko & Euaerin.
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex
- Episodes: 26 , 26
- Aired: Oct 2002 Oct 2003, Jan 2004 Jan 2005
Just about anyone who has ever uttered the word, anime has heard of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex . A quick look at the series shows that its a futuristic police drama set in the nearby future, about three decades away, where the lines of man and machine have been blurred. However, with the rise of great technology, abuse of said technology is on the rise by terrorists and criminals. GITS follows Major Kusanagi and her team referred to as section 9 as they serve to stop these crimes and track down criminals.
The most popular track by far written for this series has to be Inner Universe sung by Origa. Yoko Kanno wrote this track by running together quick beats to give it a fuzzy, extraterrestrial feeling which you can hear in the opening notes and if you listen closely throughout the song. She does this in many other songs throughout the series giving it a slightly futuristic forward sound. Run Rabbit Junk, Stamina Rose, Home Stay etc etc. The other cool part about Inner Universe is that its sung in Russian, Latin, and English. The lyrics within it as well reference people struggling to find identities within a society that has rapidly become so mechanized that they are disassociated from each other almost automatically.

Connection To Gabriela Robin
On many of Kanno’s tracks, a woman named “Gabriela Robin” was credited as a lyricist and vocalist, but whenever these songs were performed in concert, either Maaya Sakamoto or Origa would perform them instead. In a 2009 written interview, Robin proclaimed that she would perform for the first time live at Kanno’s 2009 Tanabata Sonic concert, but at the end of the concert, which featured Kanno directing the Warsaw Philharmonic, Kanno turned to the audience and sang “Moon”, a song previously attributed to Robin from the Turn A Gundam soundtrack, revealing that “Gabriela Robin” was simply a pseudonym Kanno used to write songs mixing English and Japanese freely. In a later interview, Kanno said she had picked the name because the first orchestral recording she had heard was the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and at the time Yitzhak Rabin served as Israel’s Prime Minister.
Gurren Lagann Cosplay Brings Yoko To Life
One awesome Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann cosplay has brought Yoko Littner to life! It’s been several years since the series first made its debut, premiering back in 2007, but there’s quite a lot of influence that Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann has over the current state of anime today. Not only did the series’ director Hiroyuki Imaishi go on to co-found Studio Trigger together with Masahiko Otsuka following the success of series’ such as this one for Aniplex, but Gurren Lagann‘s biggest moments have been shouted out in many anime years later.;
This was especially true for its characters, that have still left an impact on many fans years later. The franchise eventually did get a re-do on its ending with a series of new compilation films released after the original anime’s run, but one thing it didn’t really change was the central dynamic of its core cast. One of the anchors that held it down was Yoko Littner, the sniper who had come from the surface in the premiere episode to show Simon and Kamina there was a whole new world than they were used to. Now Yoko’s been brought to life with some awesome cosplay from artist @japp_leack on Instagram! Check it out below:;

Examining Old School Anime: Yoko Shirakis Imitation Of Mary
Greetings to our dear readers!; Having accepted TWWKs invitation to write for Beneath the Tangles, we decided that blogging about old school anime would make for an interesting addition to the blog and introduce fans to some great old series.; This column shall point out and discuss themes in old school anime from a Catholic viewpoint.; Hopefully, the articles will both encourage you to explore older anime and provide ideas which will enrich your meditations on the Faith.
I skipped writing this column a fortnight ago because a break from blogging and anime felt necessary. ;I thought that I would need two months, but two weeks proved more than enough of a refrigerium. ;I am taking this opportunity to write my last article on Ashita no Joe before I turn my attention to Space Pirate Captain Harlock. ; ;Your humble blogger is unsure whether this show will generate as many ideas as;Ashita no Joe, but two episodes have already started the gears turning in my head, which is a promising start.
But, let me proceed to the present article. ;In;Ashita no Joe, one notices that all the women in Joe Yabukis life look the same. ;One wonders why the the world the mangaka would do such a thing: can he draw beautiful young women no other way or does he mean to make a point by it? ;He even goes out of his way to highlight this similarity by Joe thinking that he sees Yoko in each one of them.
