Apparently some of these characters have worked their way into my passive consciousness over years of video games and cartoon watching. Today I saw multiple portrayals of characters from Full Metal Alchemist, Legend of Zelda (Link and Zelda,) Kingdom Hearts, Bleach, Sailor Moon, Spirited Away.
To my shock I found myself in discussion with Entling no. 2 about a young lady in a brown military uniform.
Me: So which series is she from? Is that from Gundam Wing?
Entling no. 2: No, the only female officer in that show wore a red skirt.
Me: Still, all those medals...
Entling no. 2: I know, otherwise it is a match.
Me: I can't believe I'm having a conversation where I am uttering the words, Gundam Wing.
I also saw a group of Ghostbusters, Draco Malfoy and Luna Lovegood, Princess Peach and a Mario Brother. Captain Jack Sparrow was there as well as multiple kitty cats, and foxes. Every one seems to be clutching a stuffed animal.
What an experience.
