Anime - Angelic Layer

Angelic Layer is an anime adaptation of the CLAMP manga of the same name.  It is set in the same universe as Chobits and tackles similar issues about the relationship between people and machines.

The series follows Misaki Suzuhara, a junior high school student who becomes interested in, and takes up, a game called Angelic Layer.  Angelic Layer is played by people controlling customised robotic 'Angels' with their minds in action-packed battles.  The game is so popular it is even televised!

Misaki gets an Angel and names it 'Hikaru'.  Hikaru has pink hair and wears a red and white outfit with two long ribbon like wires. Hikaru is smaller than most Angels and was made by Misaki to show everyone that there is nothing wrong with being small! ^^

The series features lots of other Angels, like this one called Wizard:

His blue clothing, hair and accessories is a cute contrast to Hikaru's red and pink ^^

Another Angel, Blanche, is nicknamed the White Angel and has an outfit styled after a nurse's uniform.  She's so Kawaii!

Here's the opening theme for Angelic Layer, so you can get a taste of the action!

For the biggest fans of Angelic Layer, you can still find the odd figure available online.  I'm lucky enough to have one of Hikaru being cheered on by Misaki:

As you can see, Hikaru is in a chibi style here - doesn't she look super Kawaii!! ^^

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^
