Last night I was watching Himitsu no Akko-chan— more specifically, the remake from the late 80s. Its ending credits sequence sent me for quite the loop, and I showed it to shuryorin so she would share my surprise.
I’m a longtime magical girl fan, but I’m new to pre-Sailor Moon majokkos, so I really did NOT expect the credits to have not one but three shots of Akko using a gun. Or Star Wars, Rambo, and Back to the Future references, either.
The second ending is awesome but I just love the first one’s song. It really takes me back. :)
It’s not manga, but it’s fun too :p ! Anime and movie references…
