THE BEST OF: The Powerpuff Girls

“The City of Townsville…” there lived three superhero girls made from sugar, spice and everything nice… The Powerpuff Girls. I always thought I would grow up to be bubbles, maybe I still can… If not I can always make an awesome Coplay like these guys and pretend for a few hours.

The need for a Hero – Optimism

If anything my last post made me look at how the effects of the War and Japans defeat mean they needed a Hero, something or someone to give them optimism in their current state. This is a theme that is still apparent today in narrative. I came across this series a while ago and it instantly came to my mind when thinking about Japanese heroes and villains.
