As a self proclaimed Oldtaku, seeing this statue makes me happy to no end. In fact, for some classic anime fun, you can go watch Cat’s Eye on Amazon Prime right now. For a series like Cat’s Eye, the art may be more iconic than the actual story, but it is still a really cool watch. In short, we have three sisters who are cat burglars by night. The theme song is very catchy, with that perfect blend of sultry mystery and classic Japanese sound. In typical fashion for my generation, I actually first heard the Cat’s Eye theme song because E-Rotic did a cover of it for Dance Dance Revolution in the early 2000s. No shame on my end– that’s how I found out about Lupin the 3rd as well. You have to start somewhere.
This statue is a massive collector’s piece, but it harkens back to (what I consider) probably the most important and indicative style of anime. Nothing looks like this anymore– it’s just so incredibly perfect.
