The anime's plot: The devastated remainder of humanity fights against evil alien monsters in massive explosion-filled laser-blasting robot battles.

The anime's theme song: "Today I saw a pretty rainbow / I was lifted on lovely feathered wings of love / I want to dance in the flowers with you forever..."

I painted this series as thank-you gifts for people who donated to WBAI during a specific fundraiser, so they all reside in private collections now. Thanks again to all who have supported WBAI and @HackerRadioShow over the years!

Since @HackerRadioShow was preempted tonight, for the heck of it here's a thread of portraits of old computers I painted 10 years ago. More info on each computer and why I painted it can be found in each image's descriptive text.
