Culturally, Japan seems to be a huge mashup, combining the classicWestern cultural icon with a Japanese trope that is entirely sui generis. And so with Mozart's Magic Flute opera and school girl anime.
But this isn't any sort of creepy Japanese school girl anime, this is Japanese school girl Special Forces anime. To Mozart's opus. Which is still entirely strange - sui generis, even - and proof that each generation remakes and re-purposes the art of prior generations, and makes it live again.
