We Remember Love
…is a blog that remembers love for Macross. The founders (ghostlightning and mechafetish) are two of the most devoted fans of the franchise and we wish more people love Macross like we do.
However, we also understand that not everyone will like Macross, and that’s okay. We like other things too, and the more we write, the more we discover. This is mainly because comments and the people who leave comments here are awesome people who expand our minds and broaden our taste.
As such, you’ll discover that WRL has posts on a wide range of anime and manga, as well as how we imagine (or how we live) the ‘fan lifestyle.’
We Remember Love, not just the blog, is also a concept not unrelated to fanservice.
It is fanservice of a specific kind, similar but not limited to the ff ideas and tropes:
- Continuity nod
- Continuity porn
- (Affectionate) Parody
As such, We Remember Love also exists within subject works and not just fanboy reactions. Creating original content I imagine would be a very high We Remember Love activity. As such, long-standing franchises are the most common examples of this idea in play (e.g. Macross, Gundam). However, it is particularly enjoyable to observe this phenomenon accross shows and across creators. Here are shows that best represent this idea:
- Martian Successor Nadesico
- Eureka SeveN
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Within these shows you’ll find a rich source of love for the shows that came before them, while wholly creating something beyond the referenced works, and are astounding in their own right.
