The Big O: A Chic, Cool, and Clever Tech-Noir Mecha Series about Forgetting Our Pasts – Anime 1st Impressions

The traits that I love about The Big O are exactly some of the reasons why the series probably wasn’t very popular in Japan, and instead has become a bit of a cult title within Western otaku audiences.  Some of these include the gorgeous animation style, the perception of how toxic it is to bury our pasts for the sake of our future, and the toss-backs to classic Western media and literary sources.
