mime

When I was a kid, the parents of my best friend had a videoclub that went broke, so he had a room full of VHS tapes. We used to watch movies while we ate cookies with chocolate and milk. I remember that our favorite tapes were the Saint Seiya animated movies, you maybe know them as Knights of the Zodiac. it was an anime about young boys who with the power of constellations and mythology creatures, they got an armor and powerful techniques of attack and defense. They defended the reincarnation of Athena, the goddess that protect the humans. Their battles were so melodramatic and bloody, I even remember that one of the attacks made the enemies to remember all the traumas of their childhood, it was all so dramatic and Freudian. This one is Mime, the nordic god warrior of the constellation of Benetnasch, with the power of the lire. I loved him for two things, the first one, he was an artist. Unlike other saints that fought using powerful attacks and blast, he just played his musical instrument, and the music slept the enemies into a hypnotic killing dream. The music is even lovely and dramatic at the same time, the "Mime death requiem". The second thing I love is that is revealed in his battle all his past and trauma, his complex relationship with his adoptive father and how he went from trauma to become a warrior of the nordic god Odin. I hope you like it!
